Clean, comfortable and excellent value hotel overlooking the steam shed on the Harz narrow gauge railway, a steam enthusiasts dream. Good beer and good food although booking a table is almost essential if yu wish to dine in the restaurant. Drinks are delivered to your table by a model railway, will keep you entertained for ages. Very helpful staff with... More

Just a few minutes walk from the station, the room was very clean with a nice bathroom and shower. The restaurant downstairs serves delicious food with generous portions in the evening (booking recommended if you want to get a table!) as well as good beer from the local brewery and the staff were helpful and spoke good English. Plenty of... More

Stayed at this hotel for three nights, very comfortable and clean, the location is very good close to the railway station, buses and local shops and facilities. The steam railway is easily viewed from the restaurant and this provides a nice backdrop. The breakfast is nice and varied, something for everyone. Dinner menu is fantastic with traditional dishes on there... More

This hotel is all about trains, if you're not into trains (or don't quite get it) then you might do better elsewhere. Good points, trains, bad points - there isn't any. You can eat, drink & sleep trains. Breakfast looking at steam trains refuelling (taking on more coal), you can eat an evening meal watching the last few trains return... More

We had booked this hotel with it's ease of walking distance to the Train station- about 7-8 minutes on level ground, so comfortable if you've got bags. The staff are very friendly, helpful and full of suggestions of things to do in the Town. The rooms are comfy and spacious and the restaurant serves up a good continental breakfast with... More

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!
