“A walker's dream and cosy comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Chosen as a useful 'half-way house' stop en route, we were very pleased with this hotel. Very quiet in spring, and possibly a bit understaffed in the low season, nevertheless we were made very welcome. Our room looked out over the nearby hills at the back, and was very peaceful with a huge bathroom. We were glad we had taken the receptionist's advice to book a table for dinner as the bar/restaurant became very full of local people all apparently regulars. The food was strong on local specialities well cooked and in ample portions. Breakfast was a buffet with the option of hot dishes to order.
The forests and streams come right up to the hotel, and as a starting point for walks it would be superb, good for families.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

We drive up to Zella Mehlis to visit the family at least twice a year. Waldmuehle is always the first choice for my boyfriend because he simply loves the wilderness and the sauna of the hotel. I liked the hotel a lot more since last December after I discovered what nice forest the hotel is sitting on.
To not pack on too much weight after nice heavy christmas meals, I braved a run in the winter. The view was absolutely beautiful. Air was fresh and slight up hill and down hill path was fun to run on.
Rooms are always clean and well maintained. Staff are friendly and breakfast although standard, they have this ridiculously good scrambled eggs. Shame they always make it in small portion.
Bottom line, its highly recommended whenever you visit Thuringia.
