A beautiful grand hotel which exceeded our expectations for its grandeur, beauty and setting. You are transported back in time so if you stay more than a day I suggest reading the Buddenbrook, it is the perfect setting to do it, sitting on a Strandkorb!
We were upgraded and had a beautiful appointed room in the 'Castle', which actually is a real castle! Room was spotlessly clean, and was kept such throughout our stay. huge bathroom, they brough wifi router to room so we could navigate for free.
As it is a spread out hotel you need the key to enter and exit the buildings for security reasons. The area is amazing, it is a secluded area but very close to beautiful Bad Doberan and Kühlungsborn, you can reach them both by historic Molli train which stops just outside of the hotel, only up to 7,30 p.m.
Valet parking is at € 25 per day, self parking at 12, I bit to expensive but there is little parking in the area to be found.
Service was impeccable at reception and Nelson bar, whereas breakfast needs improvement.
The young hostess at breakfast reception didn't speak any English, you do not really know if you can just walk in, as many did, or wait to be seated in the beautiful breakfast room. Staff works hard but it seems there is no cohesion: a lot of running around but not up to par. One morning they forget coffee, the next a teaspoon is missing, eggs benedict to order were hard boiled and cold.
It is a magic place though, a good base to visit many beautiful towns like Rostock and Wismar or to enjoy relaxing and reading.
One of the most beautiful real Grand Hotel we've stayed at.
