we stayed three nights in this lovely place. The owners/managers of the place are very helpful, the food is great and the rooms are comfortable and reasonably prized. The surrounding area is beautiful. You can discover a good part of the black forest from this place.

My husband and I spent three nights at this delightful B & B thanks to the owners. We arrived around 7.3pm and were greeted by Alexandria who made us feel must welcome. After settling in she suggested we could eat dinner at the B & B, where her husband, Albert runs the restaurant. It was a godsend after a long... More

Our room had a very large balcony that overlooked beautiful green hills and cows grazing, surrounded by the Black Forest. The only sounds we heard were cows mooing and the brook that runs by the road below. We ate dinner here twice and our meals were delicious in the cozy rustic dining room. The owners are very friendly and can... More

Excellent location. Not far from Freiburg, Basel and Colmar. We stayed in the "Suite". A comfortable spacious room with separate bedroom and second bathroom. The service is more than friendly: one attributes hospitality here with a capital "H". Albert Schärli runs the kitchen and surprised time and time again yourself with delicious compositions of fresh ingredients. We recommend Gasthaus Ratsstüble... More

My husband and I spent 2 weeks travelling through Germany. The Black Forest was our favourite and that was simply due to the superb location, amazing views, spotless accommodations, delicious food and the outstanding service we received from Alexandra and Albert. The Gasthaus Ratsstuble is the perfect place to have a relaxing vacation and to experience true village living in... More

Alexandra and Albert Schärli made us feel at home in their perfectly situated gasthaus. We loved it so much we came back! Where to start: the warm welcome when we first arrived: our room had the most amazing view of the Simonwald valley with the Black Forest towering into the distance. Our room was spacious and cleaned daily.. The staff... More

Fantastic hosts in Alexandra and Albert. We got such a warm welcome and were so well looked after that we can back again as part of our tour of Europe by car. Large rooms, very clean and spacious with a lovely balcony. All of the food at the restaurant was delicious and well presented. I heartily recommend the Gasthaus Ratsstuble... More

Gasthaus Ratsstuble is a charming family run inn in the lovely little town of Simonswald. The room where we stayed was big and comfortable and was cozily furnished. From the balcony, we could gaze out at the beautiful expanse of the valley. Alexendra was a great host. We went there with our two month old baby and stayed for seven... More

This little family-run inn about a mile out of Simonswald is built on a hill, with the restaurant on the ground floor, and then, two stories up, the guest rooms. Parking is in the front and guests must walk up a couple of flights to get to their room. However, there is a small parking lot on the same level... More

I stayed there for three nights and wished I could have stayed longer. This is a 2nd generation family run establishment and you felt welcome from the moment they greeted you. The room I stayed in was very comfortable & meticulously clean. The style is typical for B&B's in that area (lots of wood panels) and nicely done. The breakfast... More
