I always stay here when I come to Bayreuth for the Festspiele. It is just perfect. Family owned, full of character, located right in the town centre and the staff are all very friendly. All the rooms are distinctive and different, the restaurant is excellent and the place is always spotlessly clean. I love the many photographs of all the... More

I stayed there for 3 nights. The location is perfect, on the main shooping street. The room was midsize with one bed and working table. The bath was quite comfortable. breakfast was good. You can ask for any kind of egg or coffee you like with three home made jam. You can park the car in the hotel but this... More

Went to Bayreuth for the first time in September, it is a really stunning place with loads of historical interest, the hotel did not disappoint and added to a memorable visit. Helpful staff , old fashioned rooms with a modern twist and excellent levels of service all around.

We spent one wonderful evening in Bayreuth in September. We were greeted by the Golden Anker's very professional staff who all provided excellent service and met all our needs. The corner room was very large and very quiet directly above the pedestrian area. The breakfast was made to order and no request was too much. On site parking was very... More

We stayed one nigth. The room is very nice and special - old, renovated just special. The price is really high. I am fine paying high prices and the Wagner festival was taking place. What was missing, the service was not in place. By charging such rates i have certain expectations - these were clearly not met. It is a... More

Stayed here in July 2012 with our large dog; booked directly by e-mail; arrived by car; stayed one night (enjoyed a good breakfast). Very friendly staff. Room very large and slightly dated, but very clean. Very nice location right in the town centre (parking at the hotel very convenient).

This hotel is up the street from the Margraves Theater, currently under reconstruction. The Hotel is amazing, old style uniformed gents and ladies great you upon arrival. Rooms are down winding halls. Huge piano in second floor atrium was played by several guest when we were there. No A/C, but the heat factor was not great the days we were... More

I have to admit that this review is for a stay a couple of years ago but despite a couple of recent reviews I doubt that much has changed in that time, nor in the last hundred years! I stayed for two nights on business and this hotel is so far removed from the usual business style hotels that I... More

If you want a hotel in Bayreuth which is different from the usual chain hotels and which is interesting, traditional and of the highest quality, seek no further. Right in the centre of the pedestrian area this building has been a hotel since the 1700's and has been run by the same family for the whole time. What a record!... More

If you like old world charm, wonderfully comfortable rooms, genuinely caring staff (who all wear 18th century period costume) and a great restuarant serving delicious traditional German food, then look no further than the Golden Anchor. If you like plastic sterile modern hotels then you need to look elsewhere, but for a hotel right in the heart of Bayreuth and... More
