We loved our stay at this wonderful castle. The staff was pleasant and welcoming and all spoke good English (well, better than my German). It is old, but not so old that it is drafty and scary. The bed was extremely floofy and comfortable. I was wanting chocolate and we called down and a plate of homemade to-die-for chocolates was... More

We received a warm welcome and then enjoyed an excellent meal at this beautiful property. Germany was enjoying a spell of warm weather that day and consequently we dined on the terrace overlooking the moat and extensive gardens. I've little to say about the meal other than it was expertly cooked and very tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. Despite... More

A lovely setting with nice views of the grounds. The food was excellent especially the shrimp and pumpkin soup the service was attentive and yet unobtrusive, I would recommend it strongly but be prepared to pay for the experience.

We stayed here for one night with the "casual at Hugenpoet" package. The room was lovely and bathroom quite luxurious. We were supposed to have a welcome cocktail however we eventually had to ask for it after we found ourselves a table in the restaurant. The menu for this package had one starter, one main course and one dessert so... More

This castle hotel is simply fabulous! An authentic castle with a long history, its quite magical. Well appointed, clean room. Wonderful friendly service. Beautiful, peaceful setting. Wifi included, unlike many places we stayed. Air conditioned. What a contemporary castle experience should be! Well worth going out of your way for!

We stayed for just one night sadly - although it wasnt our first visit to this hotel. On the positive side - The staff are fantastic, both in the hotel and in the restuarant - friendly, helpful and clearly aiming for an excellent level of service. The hotel itself is also wonderful, great location and look. Our room (26) was... More

Hugenpoet Manor (as they call it in English) was just what I had been looking for and what is not available in my own country Holland. Very surprising to find this in the industrial Ruhr area. I had a junior suite, room 12, which is the room with green walls that one finds in pictures. It has splendid antiques, nice... More

Stayed here for a business meeting, followed by dinner. Meeting room was spacious and well- equipped. Dinner excellent (although rather pricey). Room comfortable and quiet. If you like places with some old style 'grandeur', Castle Hugenpoet is definitely a good choice!

We went in on a Friday afternoon hoping to have a light meal. We were immediately greeted with surly looks and what I can imagine to be inappropriate comments between the staff. Against our better judgement, we stayed and were shown to a table. We were seated, given a menu, bread and butter but then were left sitting for 15... More
