III. Conclusion of Contract, Contractual Partners, Defects, Liability,  Statute of Limitation

1. The Hotel’s accommodation contract, hereinafter referred to as “contract”, takes effect upon the customer’s request and the Hotel’s acceptance. The hotel is obliged to provide the rooms, premises and services booked by the customer. The customer is obliged to full payment for the rooms and the services of the Hotel used by him as well as for the service of third parties ordered by him through the Hotel in due time. The Hotel is free to confirm the reservation in writing.

2. The customer signing the contract and the Hotel are contractual partners. If a third party has ordered on behalf of the customer, such third party shall be liable to the Hotel together with the customer as joint and several debtors for all obligations under the contract.

3. Should there be any disruptions or deficiencies in the agreed services of the Hotel, the customer must report this immediately after becoming aware of it, so that the Hotel is given the opportunity to remedy the situation immediately or to immediately provide the service as agreed in the contract. The complaint must be made at the latest before departure or upon return of the premises or the room. The customer is obliged to provide evidence. The customer is obligated to contribute what is reasonable to him in order to remedy the disturbance and to keep any possible damage to a minimum. The customer is obligated to inform the hotel immediately of the possibility of any damage occurring, if necessary also in writing. The customer must keep any damage incurred by him as low as possible (duty to minimize damage).    

4. The Hotel’s liability in the non-typical range is limited to deficiencies in the service that are demonstrably due to intent or gross negligence. The burden of proof rests with the aggrieved party.This applies to claims arising from warranted characteristics and culpa in contrahendo. In addition, the limitation to the respective sum insured of the Hotel's business liability, which can be viewed by the customer during office hours, shall apply.

5. Claims of the customer arising from non-performance or defective performance or reasons for any other liability of the Hotel shall become statute-barred – subject to a shorter statutory limitation period – in principle in one year from the commencement of the limitation period, to be calculated from the customer's knowledge with the signing of the Hotel accommodation contract and the day of departure or the end of the event agreed therein. This does not apply to injuries to life, body, health. In addition, the statutory provisions shall apply.

IV. Services, Prices, Due Dates and Payments, Off-Setting and Reduction

1. The Hotel is obliged to provide the services ordered by the customer and confirmed by the Hotel as well as to keep the booked guest rooms and premises ready. Booked rooms are available to the customer as of 02:00 pm CET on the agreed day of arrival. The customer has no right to earlier provision. The customer does not acquire any claim to the provision of certain rooms or certain premises, unless this has been expressly agreed in writing in advance. On the agreed departure day, the rooms are to be made available vacated no later than 11:00 am CET. Thereafter, the hotel may charge 50% of the full accommodation price for late vacating of the room for its use in excess of the contract until 02:00 pm CET and the full 100% accommodation price after 02:00 pm CET.

Reserved function rooms are only available to the customer at the time previously agreed in writing. Use of the function rooms beyond the agreed period requires the prior written consent of the hotel in text form and will be charged additionally.

2. The customer is obliged to pay the agreed prices of the Hotel for the provision of guest rooms or premises, the boathouse and other services used in due time. This also applies to services or deliveries of third parties arranged by the customer and expenses of the Hotel to third parties, in particular also for claims of copyright exploitation companies.

3. The following applies one week prior to the event:

The customer must announce the final number of participants by Wednesday of the week prior to the start of the event. The number announced will be the basis for subsequent billing, regardless of the actual number of persons.

4. The agreed net prices in the Hotel accommodation contract are shown on the invoice with the applicable statutory value-added tax. If the period between the conclusion of the contract and the event exceeds five months and if the price generally charged by the hotel for such services to date will increase accordingly due to the rising inflation rate of 5.9% in February 2024. The increase is also based on the existing inflation rate for food of 3.8% in February 2024 with rising inflation rates due to increased energy costs (gas levy) of 38.7%, increased producer prices, the war in Ukraine and supply bottlenecks. The hotel increases prices appropriately, but by a maximum of up to 12%; see Federal Statistical Office.

5. Should the customer subsequently make changes to his order/reservation/booking, any changes require the Hotel’s written consent in text form for legally binding effectiveness. In the event of its consent, the Hotel is entitled to adjust and increase its prices accordingly.

6. If a conference package is stipulated, this is understood to be per event day and its period and per participant, unless otherwise agreed in writing.

7. Should an event extend beyond 01:00 at night, the hotel is entitled to charge a gross night work surcharge according to the price list of the booking year. The price list is available and can be sent upon request.

8. The Hotel is entitled to demand a reasonable advance payment or security deposit at any time. The amount of the advance payment and the payment dates may be agreed in writing in the contract. If the customer is in arrears with payment, the Hotel is entitled to refuse further services.

9. Hotel bills without a due date are due and payable within 14 days from the date of invoice without deduction. Delay in payment, even with only one invoice, entitles the Hotel to stop all further and future services. The prerequisite is that the Hotel has put the customer in default by sending a first reminder, setting a deadline for receipt of payment and indicating the consequences of non-payment. Furthermore, the Hotel is entitled to call in accrued claims at any time and to demand payment without delay. In the event of default in payment, the Hotel shall be entitled to charge the statutory default interest applicable at the time. The Hotel reserves the right to prove and claim higher damages; the customer reserves the right to prove and claim lower damages.

10. The acceptance and selection of credit cards is always at the Hotel's discretion, even if the basic acceptance of credit cards is indicated by notices in the Hotel premises. The acceptance of checks, credit cards and other means of payment is always only on account of performance.

11. The customer may set off or reduce a claim of the Hotel with undisputed and legally established counterclaims. The customer shall bear the burden of proof for the due data and absence of objections of the counterclaims.

Invoice amounts exceeding € 4,000 are to be paid by bank transfer.

V. Withdrawal and Partial Withdrawal of the Customer (Revocation, Cancellation, Reversion), Non-Utilization of the Services of the Hotel (No-Show) for Conferences and Banquets

1. The customer has a right of withdrawal or a right of partial withdrawal if this has been explicitly agreed in writing in text form in the contract. The timely written receipt of the withdrawal declaration by the hotel is decisive. This also applies to any booking modules of service components of booked services of the hotel, such as cancellation of a dinner at an event in the sense of Item I.

Only if the written notice of withdrawal in text form is received in due time, no claims for payment or damages of the Hotel against the customer shall arise. According to Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament, Article 16, the 14-day right of withdrawal does not apply to hotel bookings. Therefore, these conditions apply.

2. The right of withdrawal expressly agreed in text form shall expire if it is not exercised by written declaration in text form within the agreed withdrawal period. The burden of proof of the timely declaration of withdrawal lies with the withdrawing party. In all other cases, the contract remains fully effective with the consequence that the customer must pay the agreed consideration from the contract to the Hotel, less the saved expenses of the Hotel. If the booked premises and guest rooms are not rented otherwise, the Hotel may charge the contractually agreed prices up to 100 %, see clause V. No. 5, variants 1, 2, 3. It is left to the customer to prove higher saved expenses of the Hotel.

3. The provision in clause V. 2. shall apply in all cases of revocation, cancellation, no-show, and non-appearance as well as non-utilization of the ordered services, deliveries and booked premises. 

4. Clause V. 2., 3. shall not apply in cases of default in performance by the hotel or impossibility of performance the Hotel is responsible for.

5. The customer's obligation to pay in cases of clause V. 2.,3 extends to reasonable compensation for lost food and beverage sales as well as for lost room rent and room hire. The Hotel is at liberty to make a flat-rate deduction for saved expenses or to make a concrete calculation.

If the period between the conclusion of the contract and the event exceeds five months, the price calculated by the hotel to date will increase accordingly, taking into account the rising inflation rate of 5.9% in February 2024. The increase is also based on the existing food inflation rate of 3.8% in February 2024 with rising inflation rates due to increased energy costs (gas levy) of 38.7%, increased producer prices, the war in Ukraine and supply bottlenecks.

The hotel implements the recommendation of the Bavarian State Government to effectively counter this danger by issuing declarations of protection. The declarations of protection are particularly relevant for companies in the fields of management consulting, personnel and management training, further education and lecture events, software consulting and project development. Ultimately, the hotel is entitled to demand such a declaration of protection in the event of any suspicion. If the declaration is not submitted or a knowingly false declaration is submitted, the hotel is entitled to terminate the hotel contract for good cause without notice.

XV. Mediation Clause, Consumer Arbitration, Place of Jurisdiction, Place of Payment and Performance

1. In the event of a dispute, we prefer settlement by way of a mediation procedure. The mediation procedure is regulated by law and offers the possibility of a self-determined solution with the support of an impartial mediator. Mediation always offers the added value of a sustainable and lasting solution that guarantees a friendly reunion. Out of appreciation for you, our guests, we therefore favor this dispute resolution instrument.
