“Amazing Inn along the Mosel River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

This is hands-down the best B&B I have ever experienced! The Inn is quite large, yet very home-y and inviting. The hosts are extremely welcoming, and their English is quite good. The Mosel River is situated directly across the street and the view is something to behold. There are several castle ruins all within driving distance (car needed to stay at this Inn), and many quaint towns. The food at this Inn is absolutely divine, and below cost. Guests have the option of paying 15 Euro for dinner each night, and breakfast is included and served by candlelight! It is quite the experience. Beds are comfortable and rooms are quite large. We had an in-suite bathroom as well. If you are in the area, this B&B is a must-see!!!

Very peaceful and charming. Excellent service by the family who runs it. The hotel may have creaky wood floors and small doors (for my tall uncle, 6'3"), but they're all part of the charm. The food is excellent too. Try the goulash.

The river view from my room is hypnotic. Just watching the little ferry shuttle the cars and bicycles back and forth is so relaxing. The entire Mosel river area is very peaceful. I thought it was the best view I've ever seen, and I have seen a good part of the world. I would go back there again and again.

We have stayed at the Hotel Haus Lipmann two times in the last few years and have been very pleased. The day before you arrive, the family requests that you call to confirm your arrival. This is very easy as the entire family speaks flawless English. When we arrived, David informed us that there were a couple of rooms available and we could choose the room that we liked the best. Not an easy decision as all of the rooms were beautiful and absolutely spotless. Our room was on the second floor and had a great view of the Mosel.
There is a lovely vine covered terrace from which you can enjoy dinner and watch the boat traffic on the river. Even though it was a little cold outside, the view on the terrace was too nice to pass up. Make sure to have dinner at their restaurant at least one night as the food is phenomenal.
We stayed in the hotel as our last night in Germany before a flight from Frankfurt. David will give you an easy shortcut that makes the trip to the airport quick. As we had an early flight and would miss breakfast, David made sure that we had a breakfast packed to go. His father was up early to check us out and wish us off.
Overall we have enjoyed our stays and would definitely stay here again if we were in the Mosel river area.



The hotel is located in the quiet town of Beilstein right on the Mosel rIver. The location is very close to the Rhine river and the Castle of Burg Eltz.

Any traveller along the Mosel cannot pass up a stay at beautiful Hotel Haus Lipmann in quaint Beilstein. It is the ultimate in relaxing vacation stays.

First of all, the service is outstanding. Innkeeper David and his wife Anja seem to anticipate your every wish. Plates of food magically appear at the breakfast table, and whenever you have a question, they are always right there to answer it. And they imbue all employees at the hotel with the same dedication to detailed service. The staff keeps the rooms impeccably clean and never seem to stop.

Second, the location of the hotel is the best I saw all along the Mosel. Hotel Haus Lipmann is directly on the river and from one of the four front rooms you can watch river traffic up or down river. The road between the hotel and the water is not busy enough to present any kind of obstacle to walking or riding along the bike path that stretches for kilometers in both directions. The front of the hotel offers the best views because it has a dining terrace that is covered from the rain as well as landscaped by grape vines, all of which boasted rich, lush bunches of purple gapes during our stay. The rear of the hotel opens unto the small but central "Platz" of Beilstein where you can sit and enjoy a glass of white from several local vinters. On weekends, you don't even have to pay the admission to listen to the music from the nearby Stube because the convenient tables provide a calmer atmosphere with much more ambience.

Third, Beilstein is centrally located so that it provides easy access to many places up and down the Mosel. We took daytrips to Cochem, Trier, Zell, Burg Eltz and even Bitburg and were never rushed to get back before nightfall. And a river cruise boat docks conveniently close to the hotel and offers an easy and relaxing way to get to Cochem. Several hiking trails in the area offer everything from a short walk to a castle and vineyards to longer rambles.

Fourth, the food is excellent and priced to fit any budget. You can order from the menu, but we found that the daily special was both delicious and more than adequate. For only 15 euros, we had a salad, soup, the entree of the day, and a dessert. It was always enough to get us through till the sumptuous breakfast the next morning. And eating on the grape-covered terrace is a treat in itself.

Finally, Beilstein itself is a place to savor. The town usually bustles with tourists during the day, especially on weekends, but by the time the last cruise boat heads upriver and the last tour bus pulls out, the town is pretty much left to those who are overnighting. That's when you sink into a chair at one of the outdoor cafes, order a bottle of the local trocken Riesling, and really enjoy the charms of this small village. I guarantee you will fall in love with both Hotel Haus Lipmann and Beilstein, and before you leave, you'll be planning your next visit.

We were on summer holiday in this area about 10 years ago and stayed in Cochem. One evening we had a delightful and memorable meal at Haus Lipmann, the weather was a warm and balmy so we ate outside on their vine covered terrace overlooking the Mosel and there was a generally nice feel about the place. This year we decided repeat the trip so Haus Lipmann immediately came to mind and I was encouraged by the glowing reports on Tripadviser which my Wife and I now heartily endorse. We stayed for 5 days - David and his charming and friendly staff made us very welcome, the food was excellent and we will certainly be back again - probably mid September to partake in the local wine festivals!

A very cozy and romantic hotel on the banks of the river Mosel. Very friendly staff and you feel Immediately the warmth of a family owned hotel. The food is great, do not make the mistake of eating anywhere else in town. A wine tasting across the “street” is also highly recommendable. We also bought some wine at the Hotel and took home. Great value!!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Haus Lipmann’s homey little B&B. The same family has owned this house for over 200 years, and has created a very wonderfully comfortable B&B, with a helpful, efficient staff. Our room was very large, with a view of the Mosel River from the spacious balcony. The room was not air conditioned, but the windows were screened (which is not something that you often find in Europe), so the river breeze cooled the room very nicely without the annoyance of flies and mosquitoes. They offer a laundry service which is very convenient, washed, dried, folded and delivered to your room the same day for 10€. As we were in the middle of a 5 week European adventure, this was an excellent perk. The breakfast is served in the restaurant below and is simply fabulous with fresh fruit, breads, cereal, cold cuts, cheese, juice, coffee & tea. Stay for dinner. They made sure we had one of the best tables in the house to enjoy the Mosel River while we dined on local specialties. Marvelous food!
A short note: The directions on their website are only directions to Beilstein. And although Beilstein is a small town, there are several Lipmann hotels in town. You need to follow the highway down to the river to find the correct Haus Lipmann. We, unfortunately, did not know this, and followed the very prominent signs to the Lipmann Hotel (which is owned by the same family). From there, we were directed to Haus Lipman, down an UNMARKED “PEDESTRIAN ONLY” street! We found ourselves literally stuck in a small plaza, filled with people sitting in restaurant patios, in front of Haus Lipmann, trying to figure out how to extricate ourselves from the situation. Thank goodness for small European cars! Finally, one of the Haus Lipman staff came out and directed us. How very, very embarrassing! We went back and checked the street on foot later that day…. There was absolutely nothing to indicate that the street was pedestrian only! So beware. Park by the river, the hotel does not have any private parking.
