If you want to step into a time long ago with castles and dreams this is the place. The hotel itself is impeccable. The food is outstanding and the staff was wonderful. There are private gardens that are right out of a story book. If you want a place to stay as a base along the Rhine it is perfect.... More

We booked room 23 in the tower , the highest point in the castle complex. There is quite a long uphill slog from the car park just to reach reception . But that all adds to the adventure and excitement. Then a 3 story lift journey up the tower then another 39 steps to reach the room. Nestled under the... More

Yes, you're staying in a (reconstructed/ refurbished) castle. The rooms are new, with all the modern conveniences, but with appropriate decor and ambiance. Rooms are comfortable, one of my single rooms was a bit cramped, but for 140EUR including lavish breakfast buffet AND 4 course gourmet dinner, it's a good value. Spectacular Rhine views from the terrace and some rooms.... More

We had always wanted a German castle experience and were certainly not disappointed! The castle itself is a fascinating medieval structure and some great effort has gone into transforming it into a luxury hotel with modern amenities. On top of it the Hutl family - the owners themselves - are there to look after you. At the restaurant, the gourmet... More

Since I had stayed at the Schoenberg a few years ago the "wow" factor was not there. The hotel commands a great view of the Rhine, the rooms are small and staying in August the room was hot. To save money the hotel does not provide the normal bathroom necessities like a bar of soap, shampoo just liquid soap from... More

Our family of 5 stayed in Room #25 Wedding Suite for our first two nights in Germany. We initially thought it was expensive, but after enjoying the experience so much of just walking around, and realizing that dinner and breakfast was included, we think it was a great value. My only negative comment is that its location high on a... More

We stayed here 2 years ago in room 13, the Suite of the Seven Virgins. Well.........I didn't find any virgins, but did find awesome atmosphere,charm,and superb family service.

I think this is the most money that we have ever spent on a hotel for a single night, but it was truly a wonderful adventure and I don't think we will ever forget our delightful experience there. Before arriving at the castle, we took a train to Boppard and then did a 22 mile bike ride to Bacharach and... More

Castle is situated up on cliff overlooking the Rhine River. It is everything you want in a castle....visit the museum, it's included in the cost of your room. Be certain to take the vintner tour where you learn the town's history and taste several wines (he picks you up so you don't have to drive). That evening, have the special... More

I can't recommend this castle hotel experience highly enough as a home base for exploring the Romantic Rhine. It transports you to a fairy tale experience from the moment you walk or drive across the bridge into the castle grounds. My family of four, with kids age 2 and 4, spent 3 nights in Room 24, described on the hotel... More
