This was my second stay here ( see prior positive review May 3, 2017), while visiting friends in the area.
I think I had the same basic solo room as before, 203 (with a nice big bathtub), facing the abby. I again experienced the joy of bells ringing as early as 5:15, which I like, some may not. There were many welcome power outlets and a safe.
I was happy to see the room now has a water boiler and provisions for basic morning coffee or tea, ( important) though there is still no in-room fridge ( less important to me though many want one).
I had no problem getting a second pillow I needed to be comfortable, and the blouses I sent for washing and ironing came back within 24 hours looking beautiful.

I was pleased to see that the restaurant now plays classical music at breakfast, instead of pop radio with loud commercials like at my prior visit.
Afternoon coffee and cake was very good ( authentic black forest cake with real cream and cherry liquer).
However, I was disappointed in the restaurant at the one dinner I had, and in the two breakfasts. I was there five days but mostly skipped the uninspiring breakfasts.
The dinner food ( but not the price) was basic, pork meat a bit dry and veggies overcooked, with sullen and very slow service by a non-German waiter who seemed tired ( about a half hour time from sitting down to getting our wine). Two years ago, to compare, it was fantastic.
The breakfast was also not as nice as before: watery coffee, only three varieties of uninteresting sausages ( e.g., salami, flavorless ham), the boiled eggs available were hardboiled and not soft-boiled as is more traditional, and what service there was from young ladies was friendly but minimal. There appears to be some cost-cutting both in food and in personnel.

There is still no AC, ( but still typical for Germany) and the weather was humid, so window had to be open all the time, which meant hearing the road noise at night. The high bathroom window was fixed in a partly open position which was odd.

The worst was the parking the first three nights. I would typically return after 9 and the close in outside lot would be full. I landed up across the street in the lake parking lot one night for 2 euros, then walked under an underpass in the dark to the hotel, a bit creepy. The next night I tried the same, as the lot was again full and the garage closed off, but the lake lot barrier would not let me in, notes there said it was only for longer term parkers. I drove back to reception, not happy about spending time late at night looking for parking in the dark, and the snippy man on duty somewhat mockingly asked if I had pressed the button to open the barrier, after I had already told him I had but this time it had not opened.He then said he had just opened the garage a few minutes before, so I should park there. There was no apology or offer to reimburse the 2 euros/ night I had paid before to park away from the hotel.
I then saw in the garage there were “reserved” spaces for some guests for some days, which I was not offered by the reception man or anyone else at any time and was not aware you could arrange ( no internet info on this) until I left.

Others have commented that the hotel needs an upgrade ( worn carpets in stairways etc.) which would not hurt but I think other issues like climate control, food quality, and service ( I know the latter is hard these days) are more important to try to deal with first. Still, I have a fondness for this area and hope to come back.

The stay at the see hotel was a very pleasant surprise it is next to a monetary with extensive manicured gardens to front and rear. Breakfast on the front deck overlooking the lawns is so very relaxing and pleasant. The staff were excellent, very attentive and helpful when needed. Room were also very comfortable I wish I could have stayed longer than 1 day just to relax and enjoy

Firstly, this is not a hotel you turn up at by accident. Not difficult to find, but definitely not on the main routes. I found it searching for something else than chain hotels in the town centres. I expected good, but what I met was overwhelming! The hotel, dating back from 1864, is beautifully located, truly! Fabulous walks, a wonderful garden and a beautiful building. Very good parking, which is a must, as you need to come by car. The hotel and the surroundings communicate style and quality, and an almost retreat-like serenity. The staff I met was truly excellent, kind and helpful in every way, and definitely not the stiff-upper-lip kind that you sometimes tend to meet in classy German hotels. I quick and professional check in and out. A beautiful room of quite high standards, and an excellent restaurant! The breakfast, too, was truly remarkable. All-in-all, a place where I happily would have stayed longer - maybe another time? Only two things I wonder about: where is the fifth star? Would be well deserved! And secondly, the telecommunications, which apart from a weak hotel wlan were more or less non-existant... impossible to find a gsm-network. Well, not a problem really, it just added to the retreat feeling.

Having travelled for nine hours we were looking forward to using the spa, we chose this hotel as it provided this service, we were not happy then to be told that every Wednesday the spa is closed to residents in the afternoon reopening at 6pm.
Getting to our room it smelt strongly of disenfectant and we had to open all winows to air the room, room size good but then you are paying around 200 euros. Pleasently suprised with the quality of food & service in the restaurant well above the average for a hotel. Sadly we had no time in investigate the area around the hotel, but we will be back to Maria Laach in the future possibly at another hotel.

Sehr geehrte Gäste, vielen Dank, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, uns hier zu bewerten. Schade, dass Ihnen unser Hotel nicht gefallen hat. Es stimmt nicht, dass unsere "Badestub" jeden Mittwoch geschlossen ist. Jeden Mittwoch bieten wir Kindern aus der Umgebung die Möglichkeit unter Anleitung eines Trainers Schwimmen zu lernen. Wir weisen unsere Gäste daraufhin, dass es am Mittwoch Nachmittag ca. 3 Stunden etwas lautstärker in unserer "Badestub" ist. Vielen Dank für das Lob an unsere Küche. Sehr geehrte Gäste, wir wünschen Ihnen für die Zukunft alles Gute und verbleiben Mit freundlichen Grüßen Steffen Melzow Hoteldirektor
