I celebrated Christmas with family at this hotel and I must say we had an amazing time. The drive to the hotel gave us picturesque view of the black forest and perhaps setting the tone for a quiet and relaxing trip.
The hotel is located close to the Swiss border in a small town called Uehlingen. There's not much in this town but there's a lovely hiking trail close to the hotel. The rooms were a little old fashion but it was comfortable and well maintained with all needs provided for. The is a sauna with swimming pool with some beauty and spa treatments available for both man and woman. The pool was ok (a little too much chlorine for my taste) and the sauna area was maintained very well. I only wished that there was a jacuzzi to make our stay perfect.
If lounging by the the pool is not your cup of tea, then you may opt for wandering around the forest grounds. As mentioned there's a hiking trail close by and I believe a bicycle trail as well (though not very sure on this)... Plus a day trip to Switzerland's Rhinefall is a possibility as Rhinefall is about 45 minutes drive away from the hotel.
I really enjoyed the hotel's breakfast which had a good spread of all sorts of hams, breads, fruits and yoghurt. My favourite was the schwarzwald ham which was very good and the Hotel's Schwarzwald Kirsch torte (i.e. the Black Forest Cheery Cake) did not disappoint either. We also had dinners at the hotels's restaurant and overall it was good. The roast beef was particularly awesome! Our stay was made perfect by the helpful and affable staff who always had a welcoming smile.
I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing time out. A nice place to take it easy and spent quality time with the family without breaking the bank.
