Very nice wellness area. Friendly staff. Delicious restaurant.

Layout of electrical/light switches in a room. Too many switches with no function. No proper main light in a room.

Some rooms have a magnificent view to the valley and the Ilmenau town.

The Spa staff shouldn't be so self-opinionated.

This is a wonderful location for people who like to hike in the woods, and enjoy a picturesque are in a very comfortable hotel.

It would be helpful if clear directions to the hotel were provided for travelers using GPS. The actual mailing address will leave a GPS user stranded far from the actual site.
