Though the prices are intimidating, especially for students and backpackers, you will find that many of the luxury hotels in the area will be prepared to offer a substantial midweek discount to those seeking accommodation later in the day, especially if you only require accommodation for one night. We arrived at the Quellenhof at 9pm and were able to bargain for a 50 to 60€ discount from the tourist-board regulation prices. Furthermore, as we asked to see the room before we made our decision, we were offered one of the nicest rooms in the hotel--one so large that it spanned the entire depth of the building.
Amongst the hotel's services on offer are free Internet access, included buffet breakfast, free English and German newspapers, and an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff.
