We would happily re-visit this hotel.
Posted Aug 2, 2012
This hotel is well run and very efficient, with cheery helpful staff readily available. Set in it's own peaceful gardens on a quiet side of Obernai, and not too far from the motorway, so easy to find.
We stayed for a week on B&B, and particularly enjoyed sitting on the shaded hotel terrace where a good breakfast is served 7-10am. The terrace leads out onto a delightful, medium sized swimming pool, surrounded with ample sun-loungers, tables and chairs, etc: and although there were several families staying at the same time as ourselves, the poolside atmosphere was always calm, with tots to teans all seeming to enjoy themselves whilst respecting the general tranquility of those like us without children.
There is no dinner served in the hotel. However, this didn't bother us in the slightest as it's only a short and rather pleasant walk into Obernai town, which is renown for a wide range of gastronomic restaurants, serving delicious local food, Alsace wines and beers. Obernai town survived the war without major structural damage, and it's very pleasant walking round the narrow twisting streets of half-timbered buildings, with geraniums blooming in all the window boxes. The whole town is known for it's floral displays.
Just 5km away is another village called Barr, which also has many fine places to eat. We ate at a different restaurant each night of the week, and never hit on a bad one, although the choice was more limited Sunday and Monday evenings, when some were closed.
