The XII century Schloss Waldeck is set spectacularly on the hill towering 220 metres above the Edersee lake. From outside it looks truly impressive. However, once inside you feel it’s like any other standard, bland hotel chain and the magic disappears. I cannot understand the logic that leads owners to so completely convert a splendid castle into a Novotel-look-alike: it... More

We selected this hotel for a special occasion. The hotel is perfectly integrated into the castle, you don't notice it from the outside. It has been recently renovated and makes a very good impression. Make sure to checkin in time or let them know in advance if you need late checkin because the reception is closed otherwise and you won't... More

Despite having seen the internet photographs of the Hotel reception, I was still very impressed when we first walked in the entrance. A friendly greeting from the staff and a complimentary room upgrade set the tone for an all too short stay in this wonderful hotel. The room was effectively a suite/apartment with a separate spacious living area. Two windows,... More

I stayed for 2 nights and will always remember. The location is great, atmosphere of the castle and its surroundings cant be better. Always go for the top floor and request the lake view room! You will love it, I am sure! Reception and room service are great, restaurant on the second floor was somehow too German for my taste,... More

We had been dreaming about staying in a Castle for a long time so when we planned our trip to Germany this year we found a castle to stay at and worked the rest of the holiday around it. What better way to celebrate Christmas than in a castle! The setting was gorgeous and the rooms were lovely, we had... More

Don't be surprised if the staff speaks German, not so much English to you. They are superb. The restaurant is fantastic. The parking is free. Rooms are small. The spa is relaxing, and comes with the room, except for extra treatments. Ask for room on the 5th floor overlooking the lake. Beware of the winds as they do clamor, but... More

I stayed two nights with two chums on our way back from Leipzig, we chose this location as we wished to visit the Eder Dam. This hotel is in an old castle on top of a hill, however the inside has been very carefully built. Result is the rooms are very modern and comfortable with terrific views over Edersee (or... More

We stayed at the hotel in September. It is a beautiful hotel. Very quiet and relaxing. I was, however, disappointed with the restaurant staff. The food was great! However, if you do not speak or read German you will struggle. The menus are completely in German. And even though one staff member spoke a little English, they saw us struggle... More

It would be difficult to find a more impressive setting. The rooms are second to none and most of them have fantastic views of the Edersee. The breakfast buffet is impressive by any standard, and the restaurants are very good too. The only fly in the ointment: it is fairly expensive. Nevertheless, our stay was very delightful. If you are... More

Hotel Schloss Waldeck is an old Castle decorated in a very modern way without losing the mystery of old times. It is well approachable and at the same time located in the middle of a beautiful nature which makes it the ideal place to spend a relaxing Weekend without having to travel so far. Unforgettable view over the lake Edersee... More
