“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I've stayed at this hotel for 1 week on a business trip.
The hotel is located in Bad Saarow, a village around a large lake. There is a perfect landscape and the atmosphere is great for rest. The hotel offers bike rental, thus it's a great option to explore the region.
The hotel is a spa-resort and has excellent and comfortable facilities. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. My room was spacious and clean.
There are 4 restaurants in the hotel and I could try it all. Excellent.
The event space has 3 or 4 amphitheatres.
I recommend the hotel for those seeking rest, and I plan to stay there again on a leisure trip.

We have stayed here a few times for little get away breaks from Berlin and it's superb. The spa area is worth the trip alone, facilities are great and the breakfast buffet has to be seen to be believed -- hotel is right on a lake, so perfect in winter or summer. Can be reached by train, but involves about a 20 min walk around the lake, which is beautiful

Room Tip: Just ask, the receptionists are very accommodating to specific wishes --eg, they left a birthday cak...

We booked this weekend as a special weekend disconnected from computers/phones and for total relaxation. I would say the hotel room was ok to good, bed was 2 twins pushed together and in my opinion typical German basic comfort hotel room. Nothing to write home about or nothing that great BUT.....Everything else was wonderful. The location was perfect right there on the lake. Right across the street was a Biergarten, Segway rental, boat rental and next door was a Parkour course in the woods. Not to mention the hotel had a great salt water pool outside, true swimming pool inside, steam rooms, various saunas (4 or 5 temps), cold water pools and whirlpools. You can also rent bikes from the hotel too which we took full advantage of. The breakfast was quite good and had everything you could dream of.

Room Tip: Seaview room is not much of a view as the sea is across the street. Maybe not worth the extra cost.

It was a absolutely perfect stay. The only thing...the busy bar keepers. We waited a while before they recognized us and it was a little bit hectic around.
The sea, sole-bath, swimmingpools, spa, the area...fabulous.

I stayed at the Esplanade on 21st June for one night. The location is very rural and you do need a car to reach there. It's located on the edge of a lake. Scenery is wonderful, and you can hire boats on the lake. Parking is free. Check in efficient. Rooms are modern, with complimentary mineral water and fruit. Mini bar with reasonable charges. Only problem was my air con didn't get cold, but it wasn't a big issue. We had a meal in the hotel which was very good quality, but not cheap. Breakfast was buffet style and very good. Overall I would happily return. I didn't have time to use the spa facilities but they looked good. Maybe next time ! I think this would be a great weekend retreat.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view

The place is ideal for someone in Berlin area who wants to goo somewhere quiet to relax. Spa / pools are good, hotel very clean. Most guests are either old and in love or young and in love, not many families with kids. (So you somewhat feel like you are intruding the relaxers by bringing kids). Great playground between hotel and lake though.

Nice breakfast, nice dinner options in evening, horrible service at spa lunch place (when they screwed up an order it took them 55 minutes to fix the simplest of meals for our kids)

200 euros a night was truly a ridiculous amount to pay in order to stay in a so-called "Relax" room which was so small the furniture had to be angled in order to give you enough room to move around, in which the air conditioning didn't seem to work very well, with an uncomfortable bed covered in something that made you sweat all night, and not-very-spectacular view of the lake. There was no wifi - the free internet was wired and they made you pay 5 euros deposit for the cable. I guess they were afraid we'd steal their lousy cable? A small bottle of mineral water was provided but we saw too late that they'd gull us for €3.50 for the larger bottle standing beside it. A small thing, perhaps, but just one more irritant when we were paying so much for our room. And paying €6.50 a night for parking was another annoyance. Pros: The Wellness area was very nice, with a Blockhaus sauna which had a big window looking out on the moor. The buffet breakfast was huge and with lots of variety. The staff was suitably subservient as is often the case with pretentious hotels (not that this is something I need personally). The hotel is right on the lakeside, which I guess is how they get away with the absurd prices, and it was clean and modern.

Dinner in the suitably named Pechhütte restaurant was some sort of Schnitzel from the daily menu which turned out to be a barely-edible greasy mess. We passed on the Dependance restaurant with its €22 plates, and found a fish restaurant down the lakeside to the right, about 5 minutes walk, called the Saarower Fischtopf. I had the 3 fish filet plate which was tasty but laced with fat and salt (as is so often case in this part of the world).
