A typical Landgasthof, the heart of village social life, was how our reporter characterized the Adler, full of old world charm and hospitality. Our readers agree, and endorse the new management team who maintain the efficient service. Swap the outdoor key for your bedroom key in the electronic dispenser and let yourself in to a brand-new bedroom boasting a telephone line designated for your personal computer. Just because this inn was built in the 17thC, don't expect anything less than the latest in 20thC facilities.
Some bedrooms have a cabin feeling, with wood furniture and panelling; those up in the eaves offer more room to manoeuvre. Furnishings are straightforward and simple; bathrooms are tiny, with only a shower, but bright and clean. Although the restaurant has been modernised, the original Gaststube still has its ceramic wood-burning stove and is full of gossiping locals. The owners pride and joy is the wine cellar, with bottles from Switzerland, France, and even California. There are no stairs down, just a lift/ elevator which our inspector reckoned was adapted from a fork lift truck. Once again, the 20thC coming to the aid of the 17th.
