    « Might appeal to a specialist taste; lots of facilities, but has a down side »

    This place is big but quiet and out of the way. By road it is a bit off the route from Prague to Dresden. Its own brochure for guests explains it used to be run by the Holidays Section of the East German Trade Unions. It's probably still mainly intended for middle aged Saxon couples who are having their weeks' annual holiday. There are 101 things for them do to - swimming, trips out, cards, pool, interest sessions and in winter there is some skiing. The infrastructure is good, although it's quite a trek from one end of the place to the other (e.g. for swimming). Food was good, fair choice, fair price and well served. My main gripe was having to queue at reception. From what I saw there is usually a queue throughout the afternoon - so more than one person on reception, please. So, if you fancy a week in the Saxon hills with lots organised for you, this is just the place. An odd overnight is OK too, but it's not quite what the place is for.

    « Fine for the weekend; a bit noisy »

    We booked the Stephanshoehe for a weekend's cross-country skiing. Rooms are perfectly fine and fairly large, though the bathrooms are a bit of a squeeze. The buffet breakfast was pretty decent. All in all pretty good value at 66 euros for a double room and it's very well located for the ski trails. The main problem was that our room was fairly close to the bar, so you got the sounds of the `Apres-Ski Disko' floating up whenever the door to the bar was opened. People going down the corridor were also pretty noisy. And to get to the ski room you have to schlep your skis inside the building down a long corridor with rooms off it, which is a bit odd.
