This was our second visit to the Hotel Altora and it was as good as the first time. Obviously the big attraction for this hotel is its location opposite the HSB railway. We had one of the railway rooms which looked directly onto the yard where the engines were coaled and watered. The room was a good size but not... More

Much is made of this hotel's connection with the steam trains - well we have no interest in steam trains and we still enjoyed our stay here. We were looking for a one night stay in Weringode while touring the Harz - somewhere with free parking, close to the town centre and not too pricey. This Hotel fitted the bill... More

We booked this hotel because it offered a view of the HSB railway and was close to the station as we had been planning to travel to Wernigerode by train originally from Berlin. We had a railway room (on the hotel photo it's one of the dormer window rooms overlooking the railway). It was a very spacious room, with comfortable... More

Great hotel for tailfins the railway rooms are great if that's your thing. Very good staff, even with our poor German, I like the food also, traditional German and lots of it. German pillows on the bed are a bit of a issue, but this in again traditional so you get on with it. I will be booking again!

We based ourselves here to visit local Christmas markets and because my husband is a steam train lover, this was a good choice, directly opposite the steam trains, and with its own model train delivering drinks and desserts in the dining room! Clean and comfortable rooms, warm, and cheerful staff. The railway station is only a five minute walk away,... More

I am embarrassed to say that we found this hotel by accident as a result of having no German and not understanding the menus of restaurants in the town centre! What a find though! A lovely restaurant overlooking the steam trains. Drinks delivered by model railway. And food that would do the best hotel proud! A good choice on the... More

Recently I spent 2 nights in Hotel Altora. I found the stay most comfortable. The receptionist was most helpful, despite my poor German and the staffs relatively basic English, we always managed to get by and decipher each others sentences, we were never met with any difficulty due to our embarrassingly poor language skills. The room we stayed in was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and took advantage of the "Railway Room". Although the room was on the smallish side, it served its purpose with an excellent vantage point for seeing the Harz trains. The food in the restaurant was excellent and was very well priced, for instance Monday evening.. 2 main, 4 beers, 2 schnaaps 1 coffee 40... More

We stayed three nights in a comfort room on a half board basis. The hotel offers good value for money. Our room was large and very clean. The room was also surprisingly quiet as we were at the back of the hotel. Breakfast was varied with something to suit all tastes. Dinner was a three course affair with a choice... More
