8/10 Very good

Quiet, comfortable, clean escape
The building is quite nice and located in a lovely area. The rooms were really clean, modern and well-thought out ( eg lots of things like plugs for phone chargers next to the bed). Each room faces out onto nice views. WiFi was good and very easy to connect. It seems a really nice place to escape away from it all and take some nice runs/walks. The only negative things were: On two occasions the staff walked interest my room quickly after knocking. I was leaving early each morning of my stay and was promised a takeaway breakfast (breakfast only stays at 8 am) but on both days , it wasn’t left outside my room.

Really nice place for a stop over
This was a stop over while driving from OberBayern back to Calais - a journey I've done many times where one is looking for somewhere, nice, safe (for the car loaded with goodies) and restful. Carpe Diem is all of those and its only drawback for the impatient traveller is getting to and from the autobahn. I'm not an impatient traveller so this was great and I'll probably stay again, if taking the Koln-Aschaffenburg route. Only things that could be improved are wireless coverage in the rooms - my TV wasn't receiving a signal but that was irrelevant. Breakfast and Dinner were very good too. I did laugh at a previous review noting a gruff, unsmiling member of Staff - it's his manner not his attitude.

10/10 Exceptional

Peaceful place
huge rooms, great food, more than reasonable price level, wifi in room eventually very strong, beautiful surroundings (so peaceful!), way up in the hills but only 30 minutes from the main road. Well recommended.

Sieze the Day (Carpe Diem)
Carpe Diem is really a 'ski' hotel, fairly laerge for the suirroundings. People very nice, friendly and helpful. Fairly good kitchen, but way way out in the high country.

2/10 Poor

Runtergekommenes Hotel aus den 70ern. Ausstattung und Zustand nicht mehr zeitgemäß. Frühstück erst ab 8:00, wird aber nirgendwo angegeben. Hatte extra mit Balkon gebucht, habe aber ein Zimmer ohne erhalten. Auf nachfrage wöllte man mir noch nichtmal den Preis mindern. Alles, insbesondere außen, alles vergammelt und ungepflegt. Nachts schlechte oder keine Beleuchtung, was bei diesen Wegen nicht ungefährlich ist.
