Reviewed May 15, 2011

This hotel is clean and pleasant and is reasonably priced but the staff seem to play at being hotel staff.
Perhaps it was our proximity to the private quaters of the owners but it's not a good idea to have toddlers mixing with guests in busy diding rooms and guests next to rooms where the youngsters cry and scream. We did not find that it added to the charm!

At dinner service was patchy even though very few tables were taken; for example bread was offered after the starter was eaten and we helped ourselves to our wine when no top-up was forthcoming. It's unusual in France for that to happen.
The area itself is beautiful so do stay if you must but ask for a room away from the owners quarters and expect patchy service.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the owners quarters

We left Colmar in the morning, toured Strasbourg and arrived at this hotel in the late afternoon. We knew it was a good choice as soon as we entered the hotel - by far the most charming hotel we have stayed in. Beautiful old, light wooden paneling, cabinets and beams decorated with antiques... Excellent dinner beside the fire in the dining room and sumptuous breakfast buffet. Good value for the price. Wonderful hosts.

A bonus! From the parking lot you can see the start of a circular trail that leads through the woods and up to the old castle Haut-Barr. It took us an hour and a half to complete the trip ( about a half hour was spent touring the castle.) When we returned we saw that we could have spent more time in Saverne - maybe next time!

My favorite hotel out of the 14 hotels I stayed in France this summer! The restaurant staff was very friendly. Our French was limited, and they tried very hard to explain the menu in English. The food was great. The chef definitely put a lot of thoughts into the presentation and taste. We had small plates of tapas-type food between each dishes. The dining room has a good-looking fireplace. It must be lovely during the winter time.

Breakfasts in French hotels are usually overpriced, but the breakfast at the Clos de la Garenne (10 euro, not the cheapest nor the most expensive I had in the trip) was very very good. There were many different kinds of ham and cheese to choose from. You could even carve the bone-in ham yourself. Besides yogurts and cereals, there were fresh melons, hard/soft boiled eggs, warm pastries and baguettes.

The room was clean and comfortable. Free Wi-Fi. There is an elevator in the hotel (great if you have luggage). I couldn't say enough nice things about this place.
