Dear guests,
We are a small hotel and unfortunately do not (yet) have enough staff, just like others in the industry. Unfortunately, it is no longer feasible for us to offer dinner up to six evenings a week in addition to our hotel business, as we were able to do until the middle of 2022.  Especially because we have placed a lot of emphasis on fresh products from our own production with a regional and seasonal focus. Of course, we will continue to offer the hotel service with breakfast, as stated in the room booking itself, 7 days a week even during the somewhat quieter winter months.

In terms of gastronomy, we are currently planning to offer a reduced range, i.e. a smaller selection of dishes and also limited opening hours, partly by appointment. In these winter months, we are planning to offer warm cuisine on request only for house guests from Monday to Thursday between 6 and 8 pm. 

We kindly ask you to inform us as early as possible if you would like to dine with us, but at the latest at check-in. Thank you for your understanding.

If necessary, we can also give you tips for gastronomy in the vicinity for the other evenings. Some of these can be reached on foot.  

Special requests, such as a chilled bottle of wine in your room if you return a little later, can also be noted in your booking as a guest request, so that we can remember this on the same day. 

We would also like to make your experience on site as pleasant as possible during these times.

We will be happy to inform you as soon as possible.

With kind regards,

Your Opel family

Our explanation of the service charge on the invoice

We kindly ask for your understanding that we are not responsible for the following rules. What we are responsible for, however, is that we implement these rules correctly. Occasionally there are questions about this, so here is the explanation, which unfortunately we are explicitly not allowed to print on the invoice according to the tax advisor. If we apply the service charge, it is not itemised, so I guess that has to be the case as well. Thank you for your understanding. 


According to a published ruling of the Federal Fiscal Court (BFH, file no.: XI R 11/14), the provision of hotel parking spaces is subject to the general VAT rate of 19 percent. This also applies if there is no agreement between the hotel and the guest on the use of the parking space and no separate fee is to be paid by the guest, according to the court.

In a statement by DEHOGA, it is said that a "free use" of hotel parking spaces is not permissible according to the BFH. However, the use of parking spaces could be part of an all-inclusive price for ancillary services, such as a business package. This also applies to business travellers. Since the use of a hotel car park for business travellers is business-related, these costs could be reimbursed tax-free by the employer as ancillary travel costs. (Also concerns, for example, the use of communication networks).

If you are interested, you can find out more about this under the following ruling.

BUNDESFINANZHOF Ruling of 1.3.2016, XI R 11/14

As long as there is a change in VAT, the 15% taxation is accepted, starting from the room rate. 

Dear guests,

Until now, 3 G was valid, but from 3 April, most of the Corona rules in Bavaria will be abolished, including the access restrictions and the obligation to wear a mask in hotels. However, the providers can set their own rules, such as the obligation to wear a mask, by means of the house rules. Whether restrictions still apply therefore differs from hotel to hotel. 

You can be sure that we will continue to implement hygiene measures consistently. Of course, we will keep the air purifier in the restaurant. In addition to cleaning, we will also continue to place emphasis on ventilation in the rooms. The public rooms, like the corridors, are very wide and high rooms, so we have optimal conditions on site here in addition to ventilation. 

We look forward to welcoming you as our guests and assume that we will all continue to treat each other responsibly.

Yours sincerely,

Your Opel family

With kind regards,
