Guest favourite 2020
These are our favourite guests in Saale-Unstrut
At the kick-off event of the competition "Guest Favourite 2020 in Saxony-Anhalt" - initiated by the Saxony-Anhalt State Tourism Association - three regional winners of the Saale-Unstrut region were chosen: the Ristorante Hotel Torino from Zeitz (category hotel), the Alte Felsenkeller Naumburg (category pension/inn) and the Weinquartier in Naumburg (category holiday apartment).
A total of 21 businesses from the cities of Halle (Saale), Magdeburg and the five tourism regions Saale-Unstrut, Altmark, Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg, Elbe-Börde-Heide and Harz were awarded. "Guest favourites" are the accommodation establishments with the best service and customer orientation. The ranking is based on guest ratings from over 250 travel portals.
The Tourismusverband Sachsen-Anhalt e. V. will not, as planned, carry out the final phase of the Gästeliebling 2020 competition to select the state winners in the three categories. The nominated regional winners, who won the preliminary round at the festive event on 26.02.2020, are now the guest favourites 2020. Originally it was planned that the regional winners would compete in the second phase of the competition for the state title GUEST LOVELESS Saxony-Anhalt 2020, which was to be chosen on 24th June in Magdeburg. Due to the restrictions of the worldwide pandemic and the absence of guests and current online evaluations, the data basis for the second phase of the competition Gästeliebling 2020 is not available. A fair competition is therefore no longer guaranteed.
These are the favourite guests 2020 in Saale-Unstrut:
The Ristorante Hotel Torino Zeitz is located in the historical building of the old Zeitz middle mill, which was first mentioned in the 15th century, and is
right next to the Moritzburg Castle. This small, family-run hotel and ristorante offers rooms in country house style and has an Italian Ristorante with summer terrace and Italian homemade specialities. "The accommodation is very idyllic and cosy. The rustic furnishings of the room invite you to stay. The service is 1a. I will very gladly spend my time there again," one guest describes the hotel (Quelle: https://www.booking.com/hotel/de/ristorante-torino.de).
The Old Rock Cellarwhich has made a name for itself as a beach bar, guesthouse and beer garden, is the excursion bar on the Saale cycle path between Naumburg and Schönburg. It captivates by its great location, because the beer garden offers a marvellous view of the Saale as far as Schönburg. Home cooking and vintner wines can be enjoyed in the middle of an idyllic location. In 2006 the Draht family took over the business and invested in the modernisation of the kitchen, the dining room, the sewage and drinking water treatment as well as in the 11 guest rooms. One guest rated the Felsenkeller as follows: "The location on the Saale was really great. Our dog was received very friendly and the location really invited to go for a walk. The landlord was very friendly and helpful, had great sheds for sightseeing". (Source: https://www.booking.com/hotel/de/gasthof-alter-felsenkeller.de.html)
The Wine Quarter Naumburg with its five lovingly furnished holiday apartments is located in the heart of Naumburg's old town in the renovated inner courtyard of a listed manor house. The apartments for 2-5 persons offer numerous amenities such as a lockable bicycle room as well as an emergency mending kit in case damage should occur during the bicycle tour. Sonja was a guest there and knows why: "Lovingly modern furnished apartment, in which we immediately felt comfortable. Perfect location directly in the city centre with free parking. Problem-free check-in and check-out. Very friendly and nice host contact."

Background: The competition Guest Favourite 2020 in Saxony-Anhalt
The Tourism Association of Saxony-Anhalt (LTV) awards the title in three categories: holiday apartments, guesthouses and hotels. and in each case for the two cities of Halle (Saale) and Magdeburg and the five tourism regions Altmark, Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg, Elbe-Börde-Heide, Harz and Saale-Unstrut. All accommodation facilities in Saxony-Anhalt, such as holiday apartments, guesthouses or hotels with at least 70 online ratings in the calendar year 2019 automatically qualified for participation in the GUESTS LOVELY 2020 competition. The Internet ratings with regard to service and customer orientation, the overall impression and the individual handling of online ratings from 1 January to 31 December 2019 formed the basis for the Guest Favourite 2020. In cooperation with TrustYou, only verified ratings were evaluated. As individual as the demands of individuals are, the opinion of many is meaningful. More and more holidaymakers in Saxony-Anhalt are therefore looking to the Internet to find out where they can sleep or eat well. But the way to the top mark is actually quite simple: with a good offer and friendly service. In the meantime, over 200,000 guest ratings are submitted annually on the Internet for Saxony-Anhalt as a travel destination. Reason enough for LTV SACHSEN-ANHALT to evaluate these opinions and award the accommodation as GUESTS FAVOURABLE to those accommodations that were most convincing in terms of friendliness and service.
