excellent hotel that we stayed in to visit Koln and play some golf. The drive to Koln is 20-30 min, but could be much longer depending on traffic. There are several golfclubs in the vicinity. We liked the style and service level of the hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable with spacious bathroom and separate toilet. Beds could have... More

Had a great night in this palace. We had the opportunity to enjoy the bar, enothek and of course the perfect room. Elegant, traditional design. Relaxing bed with choice of pillows. Fresh fruits, water and all the luxury of a grand hotel. We even had a great deal. Will come back - for sure !

You feel like a princess at this wonderful hotel. Everything is really amazing at this hotel, the rooms, the restaurants, I loved the room with the fire place most - it is just extremely cosy - you feel like at home. The pool and the spa area is absolutely great too. The 'star ceiling' at the pool area is special... More

Elegant hotel in a former palace. Upgrade to spacious junior suite was greatly appreciated with family joining. Cologne is in sight (depending on your room) - which makes it a great base for a visit of that town. Spa and restaurants (Michelin stars) we did not check out. The only surprise is the absence of a Nespresso or other coffee... More

We stayed at the Schlosshotel Bensberg due to a dinner reservation at their gourmet restaurant Vendôme. As a Leaders Club member I booked the room via LHW. Check-in was smooth and the blonde young lady was very professional and kind. We booked one of their newly renovated rooms and they definitely did not disappoint. However if we would go again...

This hotel is amongst the best hotels we have stayed in the world. Last time we visited here was back in December and our suite at that time was beyond gorgeous with black marbled jacuzzi tub. This time we were assigned a roof suite. Layout wise, we prefer the old one with the extra couch. The current suite is however,... More

Stayed here with a group of 10 friends during a driving holiday around northern Europe. The hotel is very grand, situated in an enormous stately home / castle. All aspects of the hotel were excellent, the attention to detail was stunning, from booking to checking out everything was perfect. We ate at Vendome which was just amazing. Without exception, all...

If you ever wanted to see how it feels like to live in a grand palace then I would suggest you stay here a few nights. The place is enormous and grand- the word palatial describes it well. The place exuded formality although the staff was very friendly and down to earth. It sits above a small suburb of Cologne-... More

The hotel is a dream.If you stay only one night, take a simpel superior room. Nothing about the hotel, ecerybody knows it is top, Vendome is great.But this is my tip: the Enorica restaurant, is not expensive and the Italian food is toptoptop.No pizza, no lasagna which can be great, but simple pure italian food with a superb wine list...
