Schloss Hugenpoet is a castle with a grand history. Built by the barons Nesselrode-Hugenpoet, razed to the ground 1647 and rebuilt. In the possession of the same family to 1836, when the famous Fuerstenberg family took it and held it until 1955. Since then it is one of Germany´s best castle hotels. It is a member of Leading hotels of the world and it shows. Service is IMPECCABLE. Nothing is too much trouble. We have stayed there on just two occasions and were on our return treated like family! The rooms are incredibly spacious, the building IMPOSING and the food in either the "Local restaurant" Hugenpöttchen and the gourmet restaurant Nesselrode spectacular! The sommelier gave us extremely good advice and his selection was very affordable. Breakfast comes in two varieties, both very expensive. Choose a package including dinner, bed and breakfast! The breakfast menu is very tempting, but it is NOT a buffet breakfast. They serve rather small helpings on three plates and then a warm main breakfast course. We felt rather awkward about this and breakfast staff seemed rather unconcerned. Rather a sad ending after a perfect stay and NOT as it had been last time. So, what happens when we mention this at checkout when they really pressed us on if we had ANYTHING AT ALL to complain about. The mere mention of it resulted in the deduction of breakfast from bill and a plastic bag with goodies for our 1000 km car trip home! That is style, grace, and perfect customer care! Not to mention the wonderful service performed by our Afrikaner receptionist, miss de Vries, the day before. So once again-we succumb to the magic of the Frog Pond (the name actually means that) and will happily return whenever we traverse Germany.
