Lindner Strand Hotel Windrose4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had no idea of what Sylt had to offer and took a wild chance booking this hotel - mostly because I got offered a discount via a loyalty program. We got lucky! After traveling around the island for 4 days, we amply recommend this hotel due to its fantastic location - steps from a beautiful beach full of ambience. My kids loved the trampoline park, the pool in the spa and the large breakfast selection and I was grateful to find very helpful and warm staff. Other reviews speak of possible improvements - slow wifi, old fashioned furniture, strange room layout. But... believe me - the location is just GREAT for a family with kids and the staff more than compensates the lacks in other areas. Perhaps the only thing that will keep us from going back to Sylt are the prices. It is VERY EXPENSIVE to stay/be there... but that is not the "fault" of the hotel - which I now see is reasonably priced when comparing to other hotels in the island.
We had a very bad experience here. The waitress was very inexperienced, mixed up the order. We paid 56€ for a piece of fish for 2 with 5 small white potatoes (also for 2) it was cold and tasteless and no way 600 grams. We sent it back, waiter said ok....nothing in return! Did give us 2 fried potato patties and 2 schnapps. The bill was 150€ total. We hoped for more, we did get 20€ returned. We left hungry and the whole evening was very unpleasant. Bad service and bad overpriced food. Sorry, I rarely complain!
The breakfast is simply great with a very large choice of fresh food! The rooms are nice, well maintained and the beds are comfortable. Unfortunately, the hotel is accepting pets and the main issue is the smell of the cleaning products used to try to kill the pets' smell!!! Our room was smelling that product during 2 days even with the windows opened 24/24h! Do not forget to take your own shampoo and shower soap! For 2 persons, we've got 1 tiny bottle of decent quality shampoo and shower gel for ... 4 days. Of course there is a kind of "ecological" refillable kind of detergent in the shower but ... Even Holiday Inn Express are providing decent quality refillable Dove soap and shampoo in the shower. For a so-called 4 stars hotel, this one is kind of cheap!
We have been here several times and the hotel has maintained its good standards. The mattresses are not really good, we noticed this when we both experienced back pains in the morning. Excellent restaurant with some staff which perhaps need a bit more customer service training. All round a polite, helpful staff with local knowledge. The pool is disappointing.
Good standard for this hotel close to the beach. Classic and quiet room at the 2nd floor without lift. Bad pillows and average mattress. No real frisian charm but competent staff and quite satisfying experience. Better for german people than for foreigners. Be careful of hidden costs like water in the room or magazines. Not enough veggie food at the restaurant. Crowded in summer and very busy staff. Not even a goodbye when I left.
The price is outrageous for the hotel, we were lodged in a so called studio with the bedrooms and bathroom in the cellar, dark and a bit smelly (bathroom without window) - in winter, I cannot imagine how it would be in the summer. On the plus-side, the breakfast was excellent, lots of fresh fruit - and all things typical for a German breakfast. You have to pay taxes to have access to the beach (you receive a guest-card, otherwise you have to pay for each visit - very strange), no free internet. Also very loud from the apartments above (stairs just above your head in the bedroom) and when anyone opening the doors.
Not a 4 star hotel I would say more like a 3 star. This is because the rooms are small and a little dated; the pillows are completely useless more like a tea towel with a few rags in it; and wifi is not free it's €10. On the plus side staff are nice; the breakfast is very German, and quite fulsome. Sylt overall is pretty boring, nothing much to do here the north German beaches are hideous! Maybe I'm too spoiled by Australian beaches which are clean, warm and free! Seriously Sylt, you have to pay €3.50 to visit the beach or have a hotel card???
The hotel has a great location close to the beach. The breakfast is plentiful, and the staff mostly very friendly (though one seemed to have been asleep during training). But otherwise the picture is one of getting things right, but then failing on important details. Rooms were comfortable, but the pillows were inadequate; different guests have different preferences, so a choice ought to be provided. The hotel parking is spacious, but they charge a separate and very expensive €15 a day for it. Then the inexcusable rip off: the hotel provides wifi but makes an outrageous charge for this. Simple question: in the age of the smart phone, when cheap cafes can provide free wifi as a service, why do hotels continue to behave so badly about it?
This was my first stay in Sylt and it really is an island stuck in the 60's and 70's. The Windrose is right above the beach with two restaurants right in front. The beach is 2 mins walk away and costs 3.5 euros to enter. The hotel has a nautical feel to it and rooms are spacious, clean but dated. To be fair this seems to be the island all over. The staff were friendly and efficient and breakfast was good. I would stay again.
The LIndner Windrose is close to the beach in Wenningstedt - you could hardly get closer. The roooms are spacious and the breakfast buffet is out of this world. Everything you can think of, even fish and crab salad in the morning. Very friendly staff.
