We travelled here from Freiburg (down the Romantic Road) in December 2012, for 2 nights (following the suggestions of the Lonely Planet and stopping off in Triberg for Black Forest Gateaux and driving through Freudenstadt). With a satnav the hotel was easy to find – a lovely house and grounds with beautiful decor (especially at Christmas time with a huge tree in the lounge, next to a cosy fire). They gave us a choice of 2 suites (something we have never been offered before so were most appreciative); we picked the Mozart Suite (the other had a darker wood decor but a large bath in the middle of the room if you’re feeling romantic). The Mozart Suite was spacious and comfy with a Jacuzzi bath. We had wanted to stay at Brenner’s and also looked at the Dorint but were more than happy with our choice (it’s actually situated parallel to Brenner’s which looked absolutely huge – so less intimate and probably without the personal service, and Dorint was in a good location but didn’t look as unique).
The Belle Epoque offered fantastic service. We made the most of the free afternoon tea (served until 5) which offered a selection of teas and snacks – a nice addition. They offered us a good price for theatre tickets on our last night but unfortunately we already had restaurant reservations which we wanted to keep. Breakfast was equally good with your usual selection (they did hot foods by request).
A few little things: the internet was very good (and free). Parking outside was at an additional cost. Smell seemed to travel through the vents and, unfortunately, you could smell cigarettes (a problem we found in a few other German hotels). The distance to the town centre is a 10-15 minute walk and further again to the baths.
