I travelled to a Hotel Gut Schmelmerhof for a second time with my husband. We were looking for a spa hotel in that area for a while, and then decided to go back to this one for the second time, as it offered a great service at an acceptable price (comparing to other spa hotels). They also always have a... More

We have been at this restaurant for a working dinner and we had the chance to taste the traditional bavarian dinner. The food was good and my colleagues enjoyed the local beer (I couldn't unfortunately). I especially liked the Weisswurst, the pretzel, and the Knödel! The bavarian cream as well was nice. The restaurant atmosphere was charming, both inside than... More

We've booked the hotel to spent a quiet wellness weekend in Bavaria (not far from CZ border). The hotel has a great country atmosphere, with great restaurant with pleasant ambience. The staff (reception, wellness, restaurant) very helpfull, smiling all the time and pleasant. The wellness area is a little bit small, we supposed a larger wellness, however we have enjoyed....

A hidden gem about 30km from Straubing, this hotel has it all. Superb staff, excellent food, beautiful rooms, a charming restaurant and a fantastic pool / spa area – all served up ancient Bavarian charm. We stayed for two nights in July and we could not find fault with anything – simply superb in every sense. Our superior room was... More

I have stayed here twice - in Sept, and Oct 2007. The "Wiesengrund " rooms are a superior room for which you pay a little extra. The room priced on a b/b basis cost €134 per night - for two persons. The rooms are large and comfortable. Both bath and shower ( over bath ) are available in the room.... More

This is a truly fabulous place to spend a few days off the beaten track in Bavaria. It's only 30 mins from the autobahn, and 4 km from the ski resort of St. Inglemar. Still, few Americans venture here. The hotel and the Schmelmerhofs can track it all the way back to 1305. It has an excellent spa, indoor outdoor... More
