Hotel Gruner Wald
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Lauterbad
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We found this hotel from a previous trip to Lauterbad. The quality and price were of good value. The hotel is family owned and the owners are constantly present to ensure that all needs are being met during your stay. The Rooms are clean and comfortable in both modern and more rustic Black Forest styles. The hotel has made considerable investments in refurbishing some of the rooms and the dining areas. We found the hotel cozy. We stayed a week at full board for a very good value, even by standards for this region. The staff were for the most part friendly and helpful for any requests. They worked well as a team and were attentive to guests. Sauna and pool area were clean and nice...even with kids. We enjoyed our stay and felt welcome in this charming family run hotel. Skiing is best on the scharwswalderhogstrasse -not too much snow on local ski hill in Lauterbad.

This is a very nice hotel. Some of the furniture might be dated, but that adds to the charm of the place. The rooms are wonderful, large and well furnished. Nothing missing. Free WIFI.
A nice spa area and brilliant food (even when choosing from the included in the weekend offer). They also cater for special needs, allergies aso.
Apart from a few exceptions, staff is friendly and helpful.
Set in quiet surroundings this is just the right place to switch off and recover form a hectic routine.
The only downside is that families with children tend to monopolize the pool area even during so called 'quite' times.

Can't wait to go back.

The facility is very dated, but rooms have been refurbished. Very small bathrooms. Comfortable but basic rooms, restaurant was surprisingly good for dinner; breakfast had lots of choices but quality of some items was lacking.

Friendly and helpful staff and service.

We had a lovely Easter break at Gruener Wald hotel, active and relaxing at the same time. The hotel is about 3 km away from Freudenstadt in Schwarzwal region, in a little village Lauterbad. The hotel is family-owned – and it shows in the attention to every detail and the great service.
We booked a superior room, it was large, well appointed, very clean and comfortable. Each room has a balcony with a table and 2 loungers. Our room had a flat-screen TV, a minibar, a sofa with an armchair and a coffee table, a large wardrobe. The bathroom had a shower, toilet was separate. Everything was spotlessly clean.
Hotel is offering a half-board, so we ended having all our meals there and were not disappointed. The meals were well prepared, maybe lacked fantasy, but then again it is a bit of an old-fashioned establishment.
The hotel has a nice spa, including different types of saunas and a swimming pool with access to the lovely lawn, plus there are 2 a beauticians working in the hotel. We both had massages and I tried beauty procedures, which was very good. The massage experience was less so – the masseur seemed uninterested in the clients.
The hotel offers a lot of activities: glider flights, bike rentals, hikes etc etc. We booked the glider flights and had a great experience. The local club did a marvellous job, took great care of us, we were very satisfied.
We also rented bikes in the hotel, including e-bikes. The forest and hills around the hotel are beautiful and deserted, we spent a few days cycling and walking almost without bumping into anyone.
Hotel has wi-fi in the lobby, I think it was either free or very inexpensive. It would have been more convenient to have internet access in the room though.
The service was especially nice. The owners were greeting the guests every morning for breakfast, personally took us to and from the airfield for our glider flights, always stopped to exchange a few words with every guest at dinner. We also noticed, as some earlier reviewers, that the waiters were a bit strict with us as we were wearing casual clothes for dinners, but the owners didn’t make any distinction.
We had a great experience in this beautiful, friendly, spotlessly clean and comfortable place. We’d love to come back!

We stayed at the Greuner Wald because the hotel we intended to stay at (almost next door) was closed. What a sweet coincidence, though. This is a fine hotel in every sense. Accommodations were spacious, totally clean, comfortable. Breakfast was absolutely awesome...one of the most varied we have encountered on this European trip. It was included in the rate. Dinner was also outstanding. We did pick up a little sense of "noses up" on the part of the matre d who kind of glanced at our jeans (although other guests were also wearing jeans). And there is no lift so there was some schlepping to do for this aging couple. And it would be more convenience if there were wi-fi in the rooms and not just in the lobby area. But those are little things that faded in the luxury of the rest of the experience. A great surprise!
