Axelmannstein has improved since my last visit. Above all, it offers very good value for money. You can stay in what used to be a grand hotel, enjoy the great public rooms and the park, use the large indoor pool and have excellent breakfast (included) in the large Parkrestaurant. All this for the price of a better B&B in the UK.
Location is central in this typical and very pretty turn-of the century continental Spa town. We stayed in a newly redecorated room in the new wing with a large private balcony and made use of the large indoor pool. The park is now better maintained, the pond features a fountain and has been cleared. Minor quibbles do not offset the great value: bathroom toiletries are poor: dispensers for hand wash and 'all over shampoo' with freebies body lotion. I would prefer shower gel, shampoo and lotion in this category. Bathrooms are not the same standard as the rooms but a new lick of paint helps. And, the bottle of water at 4.50 EUR in the room always looks shabby. Pay-for water should stay in the minibar and free bottles (a cheaper local water will do) should be in the room. This will add 1 EUR/room/night can easily be absorbed but will attract positive comments.
There is a large number of foreign tourists but some staff (even front-desk) have only minimalistic language skills. English information and text needs to be vetted by someone who actually understands English.
In sum, Axelmannstein is a great hotel in a delightful spa town. It doesn't pretend to be the Ritz, so not 5-star, nor does it charge the prices. 4 star plus is accurate. Instead it is excellent value for money.
