The Villa has a very lovely location at the seaside in Konstanz. It is a quaint place with the feel of an old family home. Our primary complaint was that they closed down their restaurant and did not inform Hotels.com or us directly via email. This was one of the primary reasons that we booked this hotel so it was a tremendous disappointment for us to discover upon arrival that the hotel restaurant was closed and that we would have to go out for dining options which was very inconvenient as we had a baby in-tow. The refusal to inform guests prior to their arrival (or prior to booking, for that matter) is rather inexcusable in our opinion. However, the stay was otherwise pleasant. The Villa has a very nice ambience to it, and makes you feel very welcome and cozy, as though you could lounge about for days on end. It was so lovely that, despite the lack of dining we booked an extra night so that we could stay cozy during an unexpected rainstorm.
The decor left room for want as it was rather a hodgepodge of rickety older pieces, mid-century modern bits and new low-quality discount shop furnishings, but the coziness of the place more than made up for it. The taxidermy specimens were rather interesting, stuffed animals propped up very noticeably here and there, but I can see how that might turn off some other visitors. Our infant daughter and she had a lovely time in the wintergarten and playing outside in the garden. We’d gladly stay again if the restaurant was open.
