Julie and I have 3 nights here in the Hotel Sonne. Very comfortable with a fantastic breakfast buffet that is comprehensive and indeed as complete as we have encountered anywhere. The service is terrific from desk to wait staff in the hotel (pretty good outside in the beer garden) but the place is quirky. A couple of the photos show period costume mannequins and to put it bluntly they are a little spooky. They lurk around corners in the passage and really all over the place. There's one that guards our door! The hotel is known for its art and its idiosyncratic decorating styles and well it probably should be. There's a paper wedding dress in the 'romantic' dining room, there's grass carpet on the walls of the lift, there are very non German paintings all over the place and there's even a photo gallery of a model wearing a rabbit mask that mocks my desire for bunny on a menu somewhere!
The Hotel Sonne here is our first 4 star place and consequently we can't afford to eat here. So we content ourselves with breakfast. Tomorrow will test them as we really have only 15 minutes tops for brekkie.
Another trip of a lifetime! How many ‘trips of a lifetime’ can I have?
I'm walking the Pennine Way in England and Scotland, driving from Edinburgh down to London then training through France and Spain through Northern Morocco to Marrakech before heading back to Madrid. From there a few days in Doha on the way home. ... full info
