“well located, friendly, and good food, in Swabia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

We called here 6 nights and rate the hotel highly. Located beneath Schloss (castle) Lichtenstein, not far south of Stuttgart. Restaurant is v good, and ate there all nights, all restaurant & hotel staff v friendly, helpful. Lovely bread for fruhstuck. Good room, shared balcony. Village is prosaic but good walks in neighbourhood, forest etc. and is v good base for exploring Swabia (recommend Donau valley to south, Ulm, Esslingen, Stuttgart, esp art gallery, Tubingen, and Maulbronn), and is also vg for cycling.

A great trip ended at this wonderful location. Not a "posh" hotel for those who are used to "Ritz", but a great place to stay and visit the area (the Schwaebische Alb / Swabian Alb), a part of the Jura plateau stretching from Switzerland to the Cliffs of Dover). We stayed at this smallish hotel with a very active restaurant (they have their own trout raising business and they know how to prepare trout: try the warm Juniper wood smoked trout, unbelievably delicate and delicious!). The hotel is just under a high mountain with a gorgeous castle seen from below. It is not very old, but oh so picturesque! And the view from there is unbelievable.
The area is not frequented by many US travelers (there were a few Army families from the nearby Stuttgart area, about an hour's drive north, who enjoyed the place with all the Germans). A great find. The area has some land that is going back to where it was in the "old days", rough territory with sloe bushes (remember "sloe gin fizz"?) a very tart berry bush I remember from my youth, could not enjoy the berries until the first frost rendered them a bit sweeter. And I had not seen silver thistles since my youth either, but my sister knew where to find them on a single file road! The Swabian Alb is worth visiting! And don't miss Bad Urach, a little known place with some of the prettiest "Fachwerk" houses I have seen.

Room Tip: A good web site will help you get there.

We stayed in a self catering apartment within the hotel. The apartment was a really good size and well equiped. The location of the hotel is stunning - right underneath Lichtenstein Castle, there are walks all around including a steep walk up to the castle itself. For the children there was an excellent playground and they enjoyed feeding the ducks and fish at the stream running through the gardens. The hotel has a very popular restaurant specialising in trout that comes from their own pools and this is highly recommended. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff very welcoming. There is a outdoor community swimming pool open during the summer months just across the road.
