Here is John's Feedback:

Good accomodation in beautiful village

Good accommodation for my wife, me and 3 year old. Owners of the property live upstairs and happy to give advice and help out. Took the fact that for some reason our child hadn't been listed on the reservation in their stride with no problems. Appreciated!


Good location, right in the centre of Marbach, close to supermarkets and a variety of restaurants. Also easy to get to other towns from here - good transport links by train, or car (property has a secure parking space allocated).


The only downside we found were the beds, which were a little soft and could have been more comfortable. But a minor complaint considering all the positives of this property and its management.


We would definitely recommend this property to people looking to vacation in the south western areas of Germany.

What I liked best: Location and transport links

What I liked least: beds
