The name " Castle " Hotel should give you a clue as to whether or not you should stay here. For us it was worth every penny we paid. It is a very unique experience to stay in a castle that is hundreds of years old. Yes, you may have to walk up hill a bit and take the stairs... More

We stayed for one night in room 38. If you have (like me) perused all the rooms on the hotel website, and agonised over your choice ... just choose 38. Trust me. It is charming, unique, hilarious, and romantic in equal measure. The hotel is pretty much perfect. A warren of charming rooms inside, to fit any mood, a plethora... More

We stayed for one night as a treat in this exceptional place. We stayed in one of the little houses outside of the main castle building and we absolutely loved it. The views from the gardens and the terrace of the Rhine were lovely. The food was delicious too. Very much recommended.

We stayed to celebrate a significant birthday and it was superb. We had rooms overlooking the Rhine and courtyard and both were excellent. The restaurant was exquisite with a perfect menu. well timed service and a pretty good wine list. Overall the attention to detail was perfect. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed one night at this castle on our short stay in Germany! It was wonderful. We explored around and found lots of hidden treasures especially in the garden area. The dinner was also very good. There was one dish we weren't fond of and they were very kind to switch it out for us. The wait between courses is... More

We really wanted a true castle experience in Germany. It was the perfect situation for us - the castle itself, the location and, of course, the highly rated restaurant. We stayed two nights and dined both nights in the restaurant-not typical for us, but highly convenient, and among the best to choose from in location. The restaurant tries to ensure... More

Love the castle. The gardens are a definite bonus and I wish we had taken better advantage of them. The staff was excellent and accommodating. The room was comfortable and the welcome sherry was a nice touch! Unfortunately, I didn't feel as if we got to really "see" the castle. Our room was not high in the tower and, thus,... More

There is always the concern that "staying in a castle" will be either austere or a bit on the cheesy side, but neither proved to be the case. Our room had a lovely veranda with a view of the valley (not looking on the Rhine), and was absolutely breath-taking. Food was excellent, the grounds were well worth exploring, and the... More

A room with a view on Rhine river, in the castle where Frederick Barbarossa used to live, ancient atmosphere, books everywhere, also in the shelters of the gardens and inside a cosy treehouse! The swing and the giant chess set help you make the most of you spare time!

We splurged on one night in a castle and it was completely worth it. I knew if I stayed in a castle it would have to be in the tower so we picked room 22 and it was perfect. Beautifully furnished with a big canopy bed and a small balcony overlooking the Rhine. The dinner was delicious and the service... More
