Gasthaus-Pension-Ferienbauernhof Marko Hoffmann Kruchten Reviews
Low priced quality in the Eifel Jul 31, 2008
Gasthaus-Pension-Ferienbauernhof Marko Hoffmann is situated in a small town called Kruchten, near the Luxemburg/German border, which is a beautiful area if you like to make scenic tours or visit the castles of e.g. Vianden or Larochette.
The Gasthaus is a family business and the owners make you feel very welcome the moment you walk in. We didn’t make any reservations and barged in at about 7 pm, when all the guests were having their meals (dinner time is 6.30 pm). The lady in charge was kind enough to make us some dinner, even though we were late, and it tasted great. Three courses: a delicious vegetable soup for starters, porc roast with salad and French fries as main course, and a little ice-cream for desert. And all that for only 9 Euros per person.
Fortunately one of the fifteen rooms was free and we immediately got our key.
Our room wasn’t extremely large, but it was certainly big enough. It had a very comfy bed with some of those very fluffy German pillows. The bathroom was rather small, but practical, with a shower, toilet and sink. The tv had disappeared, all we had was the cable coming out of the wall. This was no problem for us, however, since we hardly watch any tv when we’re on holiday. The tv was probably out for repair, because the printed list on the door said that a tv should be there, but that was stricken through with a pen. The room costed 25 Euros p.p. per night, which is a bargain.
The bar/restaurant of the Gasthaus serves as the local café, so your bound to meet some locals here, but don’t expect large crowds.
For only 6 Euros per person you can use the sauna (a minimum of two persons) and there’s a gym as well, but I don’t know how good these amenities are, because we were quite tired and all we did was play a game of Settlers of Catan (that we brought ourselves) in the cosy bar.
After a fantastic sleep the included breakfast was a very good start of the day. There was plenty of choice, so something was there to everyone’s liking. From cereal to boiled eggs and from jam to cheese.
Make sure to bring cash, because you can’t use your plastics here and the nearest ATM is seven kilometers away.
The Gasthaus is suitable for trikers and bikers, I was allowed to park our trike in the garage across the street, so it was out of sight and pretty safe as well.
