“Einfach Klasse!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2008

The title of this review says it all really: "Simply great!" is a phrase which I don't use lightly, but in the case of the Ringberg it's more than justified.

Having attended the same conference as fellow reviewer "UncleKage", I feel I should expand a little on some of the ways the staff went beyond the call of duty to ensure that our event was a success for the second year running.

As we had more delegates attending the conference than there were beds in the Hotel, we had arranged rooms at a Hotel down in Suhl town centre, with a local taxi company providing an "on demand" shuttle service between the two, as the Ringberg is approximately 5km (3 miles) outside Suhl, 750m (around 2500 feet) up a mountain.

Sadly, the taxi company failed to provide the service required, which culminated in its complete withdrawal approximately half way through the conference.

Not wishing to have a significant number of delegates "stranded" at the Ringberg, the Manager allowed us to borrow the Hotel's minibus to provide the shuttle service, with drivers being "recruited" from the conference staff, until alternative arrangements could be made for the last day of the conference.

Once again, the staff at the Ringberg did themselves proud, and we're already looking forward to returning there for next year's conference.

  • Liked — Staff always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to meet our needs.
  • Disliked — The rooms use a keycard system with only one card per room, so you spend half the stay trying to find who has the key.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2008

Where can I begin? I stayed at the Ringberg for a week-long conference at the end of Summer. The staff went far, far above the call of duty to make their guests happy. They were friendly, cheerful, amazingly efficient, and always ready to do something extra. Mr. Kanig, the manager, and Mr. Oppitz at the bar soon began to seem more like the captain and cruise director of an ocean liner than hotel managers.

Add to that the breathtaking scenery of the Thueringer Wald and the most delicious restaurant fare that I have enjoyed in many years, and you have a nearly perfect hotel experience. The rooms were clean and comfortable, perhaps a little on the small side but not overly so by European standards. I am already looking forward to next year's trip.

  • Liked — The staff was so very friendly and eager to please
  • Disliked — Still trying -- haven't come up with anything yet.
