After 4 weeks in beautiful parts of Italy, Switzerland, and Germany, this may be the hotel we will most dream of returning to. When we arrived, they took our car keys and said to just go into the beautiful garden and have a complimentary drink and relax. And it was great from then on. The spa area was amazing, with... More

All we wanted was the walk in the Black Forest and get pampered a bit. This was indeed a bath of aesthetic pleasure in a charming (underrated town). We arrived early on a extremely hot day and were escorted to the garden, given sparkling wine while we filled out forms and they rapidly prepared our room (upgraded to luxurious suite... More

Having read the reviews on this site, we booked this hotel as part of a tour of Germany. The hotel is very modern and the rooms are fitted to a high standard, but I felt it had little atmosphere. From a hotel of this price range I feel they should go the extra mile for their guests, Breakfast was adequate... More

An oasis in the center of a very charming town.This hotel is set apart from others if you are looking for major pampering in the Black Forest. You are greeted with sparking wine and snacks as you are welcomed into this chic, upscale yet inviting hotel. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and our rooms had air conditioning which was great... More

I am lucky to have been all over the world and stayed in some fantastic hotels but was amazed to find one of the best I have ever been to in the beautiful town of Gengenbach. I can not find a single thing that they could improve upon. The check in was the first clue, bags taken shown to the... More

On overnight stopover drving down to Italy. Really great place and full of fabulous touches but the seating area in tje roof steals it for me. Sit there as the sun goes down. Lady in reception more than helpful. Had welcoming glass of local wine. Because restaurant was closes she gave us very good recommendation - the Hirsch. The whole... More

This hotel is a challenge to find in the maze of narrow medieval streets & I should pre-book the parking at it there isn't much. But it is wonderful once you are there. There was a wedding party going on when we arrived, but the staff found us a quiet corner to book in & soothed us with a glass... More

Booked a suite as we wanted to treat ourselves. Coffee machine in our room with 2 capsules. But they were not replenished each day. Apparently you have to buy them if you want anymore. As this is not a cheap hotel I feel they should have been replenished daily. Also help with our luggage on departure was not available. Again... More

Lovely quaint hotel, located in the heart of a wonderful un-touristy historic German town. Room and amenities were top notch. WiFi was reliable and fast. Breakfast was well catered. Dinners were magnificent. Staff were very professional, very friendly, and eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The hotel owner was also very friendly and a valuable source of... More
