We stayed four nights at the hotel. In our room at alte Försterei we were facing the street and it turned out that it was more busy than expected. It was hard to sleep with the noise and hard to cross the road since trafic was going way over the speed limit. The restaurant was great and so was the... More

This place made me feel like I would be living in another time. Beautiful, historical building, a real castle turned into the hotel. I stayed in the "Grafensuite"- Junior sweet, which was huge, with two full bathrooms. Separate living room and bedroom had matching, old time furniture. I really felt like a princess in the castle. Service was very kind,... More

It was very quiet and great for sleeping. The grounds are spacious. There was a buffet for dinner with many choices. The food was very good... More

...for me? Actually I'm still reluctant togive 5*. Coming here since 15 years again and again to instruct workshops, I can only say that they are developing nicely. Garden and outdoor facility show big investments - noble and appropriate to the historic setting. Rooms are mostly also 4* or 5*, depending on what room you get. I appreciate the mosquito... More

Visited for 1 night in June 2014. This is an excellent hotel, which is very well furnished. Staff are helpful and the rooms are very well equipped. There is a small bar in the hotel with a good atmosphere and although we did not use the restaurant in the evening, breakfast the following morning was excellent with plenty of choice.

We stayed there for two nights and everything was just perfect. The room was stunning, the staff very friendly, the surroundings very beautiful and the very best was the amazing food. The director of the restaurant really knows his business and the kitchen was very excellent.

Generally pretty nice place, beautiful old building nicely adapted to the present time. Very good staff, excellent restaurant with fine breakfast and buffet lunches and dinner. Conference well handled by hotel. Bedrooms OK rather than wonderful. Leisure facilities good. The quirks - poor unstable wireless - continually dropping out and requiring re-registration. Also I had a (nice) bedroom in the... More

I'd been to the SportSchloss Velen a few times for the buffet breakfast which are to produced to an excellent standard. The staff are always friendly and very helpful. So why the low score? Well on a particular Sunday it all went wrong. On arriving mid afternoon for coffee and cake we were escorted to a lovely table. Once seated... More

I was seminar leader for 3 days in this hotel, and I was extremely satisfied about the care that all of us got from the hotel staff. At check-in, the dinner, the breakfast, the care at the seminar, little bites to eat at the breaks. Our seminar room was spacious, well equiped. My room was a double room in the... More

We stayed at the cheapest category, at the Foersterei. The rooms are a bit older and a little worn down. Our shower did not drown properly which I feel is pretty feoss, so I skipped the morning shower. Breakfast wasvery good, though and all the people working there were very friendly and eager to help.
