First of all, let me make it clear that I did not stay in this hotel, so I cannot comment on the rooms. What I can comment on however, is the level of service that they offered me. I was cycling in the surrounding area when my bike broke down. I walked to a bus stop and caught a bus...

I must say that the best part of the hotel was the staff. They were all so helpful and willing to please us whenever we needed anything. The structure of the hotel is Goo, rooms as big, nothing fancy, very German style. The food was ok, but they could definitely use a bit more flavor (I am not German, so...

Good rooms, nice pool & steam room. Excellent food & service. Good location for walks in woods & nature reserves. There are more areas to explore than my son & I had time for, but certainly for another time.

This is a typical German country hotel. Sound and without fuss. The rooms were clean and the bed was good. The breakfast was all-right. More is not to be expected. The location of the hotel is excellent for explorations in the North Eifel. Behind the hotel starts immediately a vast and hilly forest for beautiful walks.

The hotel gives not the 4 star accomodation. When entering the room we smelled that recently smokers have stayed in the room. The room is clean and the bathroom that has been refurbished recently. Toilet is made for giants. Normal sized people ( 1.8 mt ) hardly touch the floor with the feets when sitting on the toilet! Meals are...

The hotel was a real disappointment. We booked a "comfort"-room, but the room was very outdated and unattractive. Cheap furniture more than 50 years old, old carpets and lights, very simple bathroom resembling one from a cheap rental flat, no minibar, no safe... The whole hotel furnishing is a collection of all sorts of objects and styles, very outdated. During...

A mere 200 miles from the cross channel ferries and easy autobahn driving - last bit a little tricky for directions but well worth it. Modern hotel, immpeccably clean, quiet and laid back with exemplary service. After the drive, pep up in the sauna then laze in the indoor pool until refreshed enough to get to the bar for a...
