We stayed for two nights in this beautiful hotel, we had a suite with lake view for the first night and a comfort double with land view for the second. The receptionists were all very helpful and spoke good English. We could not fault either room, very good quality fittings and decent sized rooms. We eat on the first night... More

Overall we had a great stay here. Parking for the hotel is right at the castle and easy to find. Staff were helpful and the room was reasonably big and had all the usuals that you would expect for a hotel of this quality. The restaurant was excellent and we had a great meal though as others have said it... More

We selected this Schloss Hotel for nostalgic reasons and were pleasantly surprised, very nice room, good restaurant, although the excellent chef at the "Alte Turmuhr" offers only 5 main courses but you can select from 54 different wines. The dessert with the longest name "Weizenbierparfait mit Beerensalat und Mascarponemousse im Baumkuchenmantel" was excellent, so were the other courses we ordered.... More

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
