Not our first visit. We stop off here on our way to and from Italy. No one need worry about the quality of the cuisine; the kitchen is firing on all cylinders, producing perfect examples of local dishes. The local wines, which you can order by the glass to accompany each course, are very well chosen. The hotel, a former... More

We stayed only one night for a family reunion in one of the neighbouring villages and therefore couldn't have supper or breakfast at the hotel. Upon arrival, don't expect anyone to be at the reception (we came at around 3PM). You ring the bell of the "Bureau" and the owner will appear, at first a bit gruffy but warming up... More

This will interest travelling dog owner. This hotel is announced for accepting pets. I booked a junior suite and announced my three little dogs. All together are smaller than one Labrador. I received first the confirmation and later a flat refusal for me and my companions. I suggest for every dog owner travelling in this area to look for an... More

This was the second stay at Auberge de l'Illwald. This little family hotel has been very well refurbished and partly newly built a few years ago in the local style and materials. The pool side is beautiful and calm. The rooms are charming with all comfort you expect. We stayed twice for dinner in their own restaurant which is also... More

Nice rooms,some quite small, but well done. Friendly people, family feeling (including the laziest dogs i ever saw), had a very very nice room. Service is good but a bit distant, on the other hand they really leave you alone if you like this. After dinner I wanted to retire and take the rest of the bottle, corked with me... More

This used to be a delightful restaurant but what a disappointment! To summarise: # food is served fast, 10minutes after order, this makes you wonder what sort of real cooking is happening in the kitchen. # my 24 euro main was a hard piece of meat. My dad got a veal tongue which was also very hard and unappetising. There... More

Hotel is clean and comfortable, although the rooms are a little on the small side the are nicely designed and there are premium rooms available for those who want a bit more space. It is a family run hotel so there is not a 24 hour reception, though on arrival there is a phone available and they will come to... More

The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, so if you are by car and you don't mind going to Selestat which is 7 km away for a dinner or something, it's fine. We had no choice since the restaurant was closed. Overall the hotel, its rooms, design, comfort and cleanliness were fine. What bothered me a bit was that... More

A lovely hotel in a rather isolated location although only about ten minutes from Selestat by car. The whole place is decorated with great taste and our room was good although perhaps comfort is sometimes sacrificed for style, for example if anyone has serious work to do, as we did, the stool at the wooden desk was far too low...

This is an absolutley beautiful hotel. It is an old inn, but renovated into gorgeous modern rooms with sparlking modern bathrooms, (heated towel racks etc!). The restaurant that is part of the Auberge had excellent food, as evidenced by the locals packing the place. The breakfast was excellent, athough maybe a bit pricey. The room value was outstanding, best we... More
