Goldenes Kreuz Wiggensbach Reviews

Perfect Bavarian hospitality. May 27, 2017
As is so often the way with my Travbuddy stuff I shall have to begin with an apology as I know this is duplication but I am not sure if reviews and journals are put on the site and searched for in different ways.

I have mentioned elsewhere in this journal and associated reviews I was floating about Bayern like a butterfly always looking for a bed for that night but Kempten was absolutely stuffed to the neck, I believe it was a holiday weekend. There was not a bed to be had in my price range. The nearest place I could find was Wiggensbach which was about eight miles distant. My dear friend Christian insisted on driving me, top man that he is.

He dropped me off in the charming little village of Wiggensbach at the hotel / restaurant Goldenes Kreuz and even came into the reception to make sure everything went smoothly (he knows I speak minimal German but no problem as the charming lady had perfect English anyway). Upstairs to a most delightful "garret" room which suited me down to the ground (no witticism intended) and back to the bar, obviously. Despite my complete lack of facility in German (I find it really difficult) I managed to ascertain that the bar was open just about as long as I, as a resident, was there and did not fall off the perch. As is the way in such places I think the night porter doubled as the barman. I only had a couple of very tasty Bavarian beers but I did not want to overdo it as I wanted a clear head for the morning.

The place is beautiful lit up at night although regrettably my poor little compact wasn't quite up to the task but hopefully my daytime image will give an idea. As you can see it is yet another one of those storybook Bavarian half-timbered structures and it is so lovely inside as well as out.

I woke up on the morning of 27th March in what we call at home a "garret" room, the garret being basically the attic room where the serving girl lived. My first place away from home was with a great mate called Kevin in a couple of garret rooms. I woke up this day with a slanted roof above my head, sunlight coming in the window and looked around to see a room that was certainly much better appointed than my 1979 version but I just got the feeling.

Quick shower and downstairs to see so many artefacts that had been unlit the night before and I in no position to appreciate them. It really is a fantastic hotel. If pushed to a decision I would have to say that the art deco lift was my favourite there.

I went to the desk and asked the same lady who had been there the night before (I believe she must be the owner and apparently never sleeps) for a cab. Taxi to Kempten and she was most apologetic as it might be half an hour. Was the bar open? Certainly. No problem for planxty. A breakfast beer duly purchased and outside for a smoke (it is a non-smoking hotel) and a look round the charming village and at no point was I more than one hundred yards from the front door of the hotel.

It is beautifully situated, very well-appointed, friendly and not overpriced for what it is.

Highly recomended.
