"Very comfortable hotel, big rooms, comfortable beds, an excellent nights sleep and an excellent breakfast was just what we needed after a long day's drive. With 2 teenage kids and driving all day, we were all exhausted and needed space and a good nights sleep, well, the kids wanted good WiFi as most of the hotels were not so good. Ochsen was a gem of a place, a modern, boutique, family run hotel with very generous rooms. We needed a 2 room family suite, which was excellent, well priced and the staff was very helpful."

"Super friendly, competent staff. Sparkling clean room. Nice restaurant with good food. Great way the hotel has developed an old building. Close to the autobahn. Perfect for an overnight stop."

"A top quality lovely family run hotel. Excellent room and service - very pleasant and professional staff. Would happily return to this hotel for a longer stay."
