Our group of four people rented bikes and rode around Lake Constance in four days. We reached Rorschacherberg on our third day. Originally we had wanted to stay in Rorschach down by the lake because it seemed more convenient to the bike path, but places there were sold out, so we opted to stay a bit further from town. The hill climb was a big surprise, and most bikers would probably choose to walk their bikes up it.
The front desk person didn't bat an eye when we arrived all hot, sweaty and exhausted in the pristine lobby, and checked us in very efficiently. Water was readily available, indeed quite necessary to stave off dehydration on that particular day (over 80°F, 27°C)
The hotel turned out to be truly wonderful in almost every respect. (Surprising because in the US, the Best Western chain is usually nothing special). We appreciated the friendly service, spacious & clean rooms, stunning views of the lake and rapidly changing weather patterns, the giant two-person bathtub, and the bountiful breakfast that was included.
They also had a garage where we were able to store our bikes overnight. We truly wished we could stay another day to rest in these luxurious accommodations.
The only downsides were:
--No air conditioning
--Not within easy walking distance of shops/restaurants less
