Stayed here on business and arrived in the middle of a blizzard. If you travel to the hotel from Frankfurt, you will need an up to date sat nav as some of the roads have been replaced with new roads which older navs will take you down.
About a two hour drive from the international airport, this is a typical German hotel with quaint lighting outside and a warm welcome when entering the lobby. There is no feel of a commercial influence, and you could be mistaken by thinking you're entering a grand house or mansion. English is spoken in the hotel to help with check-in.
Rooms are nice and tidy with furnishings and comfy bed for a pleasant night's sleep. Try to get a room with a view of the hills in the distance. A nice change from the concrete jungles hotels are normally built in.
Food at the hotel is good and well presented. I ordered from the menu (multi-lingual) on the first night and there is a good choice . The waiters don't speak very good English (not their fault), so beware.
Breakfast is serve yourself and a nice selection of hot and cold dishes to start the day. You can mix it up with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or be as plain as a boiled egg.
The bar is well stocked albeit slightly slow service but they get there in the end.
Overall a nice pleasant stay, but as mentioned at the beginning, try to get to the hotel before darkness sets in.
Would stay again if in the area. less
