We began our two week holiday in Germany in Rothenburg ob der Tauber at the Hotel Herrnschlosschen and thank goodness! Our four nights at this hotel was a simply perfect introduction to the many charms of Germany, and its people.
The owner and staff went beyond ordinary service to make us feel comfortable and welcome, with genuine warmth and consideration from beginning to end. And the architecture of the building (built in the 11th and 12th centuries), integrated with modern conveniences, is beautiful as well as functional. For a relatively small property, every attention to detail has been made.
We stayed in the Woodland room and found it more than met all our needs with a modern bathroom, "heavenly" bed, and of course it was spotless throughout. A sitting area, desk and window overlooking the church made it cosy for relaxing in as well. We opened the windows for air, and found the street very quiet for sleeping. We didn't have a chance to use the spa, but did enjoy a beautiful light lunch in the garden one day after exploring the town.
Breakfast was a glorious start to every day with eggs of our choice, jams, pastries and rolls, as well as fruit salad and/or cereal. And having it all served at the table was a much appreciated touch. Our dinners at the hotel restaurant were exceptional, and even if you were not a hotel guest, we could certainly recommend an evening of dining here. When not open for dinner, the hotel will book Zur Holl for you, and we enjoyed our "bistro" meal there, just around the corner, as well.
The town itself and the area offer much to enjoy and explore, and from here we even visited the Mercedes Museum in Stuttgart.
But the highlight of every day was returning to our quiet, elegant space at the Hotel Herrnschlosschen. A most memorable stay!
