It’s 4 stars are a joke!

No way this is a 4 star hotel. Rooms are minimal with low budget furniture. There is just one giant pillow on the beds so if you need a different size, you’re out of luck. The towels are also very old and rough. Even worse was the noise. We could hear everything outside and in the hallway. The room is close to the kitchen so at around 5am I hope you’re ready to wake up to then preparing for breakfast. This is, at the most, a 2-star hotel. Who did they bribe to get 4-stars?

Not many UK reviews of this hotel and it’s not really surprising as it’s off the tourist route and mainly frequented with Germans. I will write this review objectively to give as much info to potential English visitors as possible regarding our experience. It’s a family/holiday hotel, popular for people visiting the nearby Bostalsee and all the associated amenities of which there are many. It’s sited in good sized grounds within a rural location with plenty of secure parking. We were there for 4 nights in a junior suite visiting family so used it as a base and place to relax. It’s set at the edge of the largish village of Bösen a short 5 min drive from the A61 motorway, about 5hrs drive from Zeebrugge. Set in scenic rolling countryside with a tennis court, archery, indoor swimming pool and spa it’s definitely German country house flavour but not pretentious in any way. Most rooms seemed to have a balcony so you at least have a bit of personal outside space. Our room was clean and nicely furnished with good quality but slightly shabby chic furniture in a very comfortable way. Bathroom was again, slightly older but very well maintained and clean. We ate breakfast everyday at the hotel and had 2 evening meals. Buffet breakfast was very comprehensive with lots of choice and cooked to a very good standard. You had the option to eat inside or out on the large terraced area which was very popular. Evening meals were also served either inside or out with attentive service from the well trained and friendly waiting staff. Food was local, interesting and plentiful. The local Bostalsee was an unexpected surprise. Within a few mins walk there is beach swimming with a large water slide, boat hire, bike hire. A couple of nice bars and restaurants as well. A short drive, or 40 min walk to the other side of the lake gives access to a centre park location with the standard indoor/outdoor amenities, more bike and boat options. This is where you get the 4 seater bikes from. Overall we found the prices for food, amenities and drinks very reasonable. I suspect this is because it is off the main tourist route. Any downsides? Well a few but very minor really. Because it’s a holiday hotel the surrounding area can be a little more noisy than you might expect but we were there at the first weekend of the summer holiday season. Smoking is much more prevalent here than in the UK and laws are more relaxed in Germany so the terrace could get a bit smoky at times, which you wouldn’t normally get in the UK as food and diners are well separated. English is not widely spoken in the hotel either which surprised us. It may have just been the season though. We got by fine with a little German and the staff were very kind at our attempts!! Overall we loved it, great food, reasonable prices, brilliant staff at the hotel (especially Patrick who was the perfect host), a nice relaxed holiday atmosphere and lots to do. We will be back to this area many times over the next few years and will have no hesitation of using this hotel every time.
2019 Summer Special

A friend and I took advantage of their Summer at Bostalsee which was 2 nights with 2 breakfast, 2 dinners, ice cream, water, bathrobe, bedroom shoes, use of the sauna, pool and whirlpool, a gift of liquor and a book. We chose fish for Friday evening dinner, it was delicious. They have lots of choices for breakfast. Dinner Saturday was Buffett and so much food it was unbelievable. We also paid extra and got facials and massages. What an awesome weekend! We also walked around Bostalsee, which was a very nice walk.

Me and my daughter had a wonderful time here! The staff was friendly and most spoke English. We had lunch, dinner, and breakfast here. The breakfast buffet had a very good and a wide selection. For lunch we had an traditional bbq I think was only for that day? I’m not sure but it was good as well. But my daughter LOVED her steak she had for dinner I enjoyed the ice cream coffee! But I did not know to make reservations for dinner but they made a space for us even with out reservations 😁 The room was very clean and comfortable. The sauna and pool was clean and was nice to relax in! We will be back!
Can't speak for the hotel part, but the restaurant was terrible

We only went to the outdoor terrace restaurant to order ice cream sundaes in the afternoon, so I can't speak about the hotel part. But our experience there with the ice cream that they served us was horrible. We ordered vanilla ice with raspberries and my daughter ordered a Pinocchio ice cream Sundae which should be cute and decorated for kids. When the waitress brought our sundaes, she could literally not figure out which one was the raspberry sundae and which one was the kids Pinocchio sundae, because they both were just scoops of vanilla ice cream with a tiny amount of whipped cream and some leave on top. When I mentioned to the waitress that this was not really a Pinocchio ice cream, she just shrugged her shoulders and left. So 1 star for the kitchen and 1 star for the service. When we passed the fish tank inside the restaurant on the way to the bathroom, one side of the tank was so dirty, that you couldn't even see the fish. In that instance, one wonders what else they don't clean. Won't be back.
