Confortable hotel near Cologne in a park with a nice garden. The gourmet restaurant is great (see dedicated review) and justifies a stay at the hotel.
We stayed 5 nights in the golf suite. The room is ok and everything we asked for when we booked was in the room when we arrived : baby cot for our 6 month old baby, additional bed for our 4 yo son, ipod docking station, nespresso device...
The room's design was old style and not exciting. The view was also very different with what one expects from a suite in a Relais & Chateaux : watching the parking is no excitement...
The room was extremely quiet and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was ok.
The main issue is the breakfast. We had our breakfast in the room 4 times and it was never ok. There was always something missing, eggs were often cold... Breakfast quality is very low.
The restaurant Coq au Vin was ok but slow.
The Gourmet restaurant is outstanding. Only 2 stars ! It obviously deserves the one it lost last year. No doubt Nils Henkel will revover his 3rd Star this year.
As a conclusion : hotel is confortable and quiet but only average for a Relais & Chateaux. The Gourmet Restaurant is outstanding.
