“Avoid Saturdays!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2007

There are wedding receptions and evening parties held at the hotel every Saturday night. I had to change rooms at 2am because of the noise.

I was told by reception that the party would not finish till 4:30am!!

I booked this hotel because it was not the normal chain hotel and wanted to experience a local hotel. The directions from the website map were very helpful and the although it is not in the city center there is a tram that is within a stones toss of the hotel. Parking is horrible in town so the tram was a great plus stops were the Castle and City Center. If you like to walk you can also walk to the Castle.

The couple who own this place are very friendly and helpful. I sent an email to confirm my stay and it was done. The breakfast was very nice and had many cold items to choose from. If you want a hot brunch then join the many locals who come to the Sunday brunch it was packed. Cost was @ 20 plus euro.

It is by far the best view in town. I had the room with the balcony which had a two twin beds to make a king size or you can split them to make two twins. The bathroom was small but it had what you needed.

I have been in the hotel business for over 15 years and really enjoyed this hotel it was worth the euro, drive and the view.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

We decided to stay here on the basis of the lovely views shown on the website. I've no idea when the picture was taken, but it's pretty clear that the artist who drew the picture had an active imagination as all that can be seen from the hotel terrace is trees and certainly not the schloss.

Apart from that, as with many hotels in germany there was no air conditioning. This usually isn't a problem, but in this hotel it was incredibly stuffy (probably because the trees stopped any breeze from blowing in) and because the curtains were very thin.

Add to that walls so thin that you could here everything (walking, talking, midnight bathroom visits) and we were delighted that we were leaving this hotel after one night (and about 5 hours sleep).

On the upside, the continental breakfast was good.
