Hotel Hirschenwirt is situated in Wasserzell, about 4 miles from Eichstätt.
When we arrived, we were told that our room was in the Gästehaus (guesthouse) about 200 yards from the Hotel. We received the keys at the hotel. There is no reception at the guesthouse. In the morning it was possible to pay to the lady who serves breakfast. The car could be parked in the garage in the back of the building.
We were not enthralled in staying at the guesthouse. This building is older and did not match the description of the hotel catalogue or the description in booking.com. We asked for Wi-Fi connection in the room. As some rooms do not have a signal, we were upgraded to a so called “suite room”. The room was old and in bad need of refurbishing. it had a bad unfresh smell, as it was probably not used for a long time. The general impression was that of a faded charm of the 80ies. There was also bad smell of canalisation in the bathroom. When we complained, we were told to let run the water. There was only lukewarm water anyhow, too cold for a hot shower.
We were told that we are not allowed for having our breakfast in the hotel but had to take it in the guesthouse. The buffet, probably once richly garnished, was pilfered by a group of cyclists that were not shy to pack their lunch from the buffet. Possibly to limit the damage, the resupply was sparse. We had evening dinner at the restaurant which was generous in portion but very commonly prepared in a rather greasy way.
The hotel is not in walking distance of Eichstätt and therefore not ideally situated for visiting the shrine of “Saint Walpurga” and the beautiful church of the cloister.
We would not return to this hotel.
