We stayed there for two nights in the summertime, in August. The hotel is a small, non-luxury family hotel. It is not located at the lake but on the main village road close to the train/bus station. The village is small however and everything is just a 5-15 min car or bicycle ride away. The room we got was really small which became a problem on the first day when it rained. It was nicely but not excitingly furnished with what we thought was IKEA furniture. The walls were very thin so you could hear your neighbor. This did not become a problem: The guests typically staying at the Waltraud are average nice German families that are busy during the day cycling, hiking, taking a boat trip and go to bed early. Breakfast is served in a big hall-like breakfast room that apparently was the pub room in earlier days. Breakfast was ok and also allowed some healthy choices (fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, cereals, several choices of bread). What we do not know is whether the road brings in a lot of traffic noise. The road was blocked due to construction work. So we enjoyed two calm nights. On the other hand, nighttime traffic in this village should not be too excessive, so possible not a problem even if the road is open. The service personnel is not friendly in this outgoing, sometimes overwhelming American way but in a more introverted way as you find it a lot in Germany. Does this hotel feel cozy? No - it lacks sbd who gives the hotel a consistent interior design. Should you book a full week? No - but it is an acceptable choice if you want to stay one or two nights during a bicycling tour and do excursions during the day.
