I was there several years ago, rooms where simple but nice and a fantastic view, the restaurant quite good and cheap. Today rooms are either from € 45 (their german webpage) or from € 55 (their english webpage), still reasonable for the location. The restaurant has some mixed reports, but in nice weather a wonderful location.
Unique Quality: On a sunny day you can have your breakfast right on the lake.
Directions: Halfway from bus terminal to the center
15th Century Brewery
This is a lovely old building sitting right on the lake with a large patio restaurant at lakeside. The room had lovely furnishings like an antique amoire, a very small balcony (that is not really Juliet) and a great view of the lake.
Unique Quality: When we were there in 1998 they had a very unusual breakfast arrangement (included in the price of the room). There was a large spread of cereal (great meusli), meats, breads, cheeses, jams, etc. There were also toasters, skillets and kettles so you could make your own toast or cook your eggs to order. We found it pretty neat.
Directions: Not far from the Tourist Info center on the main street through the town.
