I recently stayed at the Traube Tonbach from November 2 to November 7 for some R&R before some business meetings in Frankfurt. This was my second visit to Traube Tonbach and my return was due to the very satisfactory experience the first time I was there. There is currently some on-going construction to expand the spa services area so the there was some disruption to the elevator service and general construction mess. But it was really no problem. My room was a single room in the main house and it was cozy but not cramped. Traube Tonbach's staff was always courteous and helpful, and spoke English (helpful since I was most likely the only American there and my German isn't too good). The food was at all times of the highest quality, with excellent service. The half-board option for 25 Euro per day is a good value. My only disappointment in the dining department was a Bloody Mary which took a long time to arrive, was highly overpriced and poorly made. The spa area was well maintained and clean at all times. The fitness room is disappointing, cramped, and with only a very limited selection of weights and exercise machines. However, since most of the clientele of this property are on the elderly side, this most likely is not an area management views as a major area that their clients focus on. The other area of disappointment was the WiFi which was really only usable if you sat directly across from the reception desk where the signal was decent. Otherwise, while free, the Internet access was essentially useless. I will say that the management is aware of the problem and that they are going to a new Internet provider in 2012.
Overall the Traube Tonbach is a first-rate resort and a good place to go if you want good food, good service and some quiet time in the Schwarzwald. Due to the relatively minor issues mentioned above, I could not give it 5 stars, but I would certainly return for a third visit.
