Hotel review - Gästehaus Gerda, Bad Peterstal, Germany

We just came back from a one week holiday in Black Forest, Germany.

Our accommodation for this vacation was a Bed & Breakfast with very nice owners. We did not speak German and they spoke only German, but we still understood each other and we had a very nice time.

The room was big, clean and bright. The breakfast was good and contained various types of cheese and meat products, some fruits and vegetables, butter and jam, and of course, tea or coffee. 

For more information you can go on their site
