We stayed here for 4 nights in early October as part of a Great Rail holiday, and whereas the other hotels used on the trip had been excellent, this one let them down a bit.
As others have said, the building, and many of the rooms, have character in abundance. We had room 115 on the top floor of the annexe, which was large, comfortable and with some interesting carvings, and with a large contemporary bathroom in contrast to the more traditional sleeping area. Oh, and there was a bed settee so plenty of room to stretch out. Views from the room are very good but be advised that 115 is the nearest room to those bells. No problem for us, and the 7 am peal is as good a wake up call as you will get.
Where the disappointment came in was more to do with staff and food. This hotel does plenty of business with tour groups but then doesn't seem to handle them that well - seating for the group was cramped,with food and service quality average at best. Food travelling past us on the a la carte menu looked better! Also, if you are a non-fish eating vegetarian you would need to make the hotel very aware of this, as fish is what they consider a vegetarian option to be.
We also had breakfast as part of our package but again this was average, if not poor, by German standards.
There is not much to do in Assmanshausen in the evenings apart from entertainment provided by the hotels. In this hotel, the entertainment was provided by a medalion man playing guitar (badly) and a trombone (very badly), while singing the same bunch of songs that every other hotel entertainer in Europe comes out with - but over in the Annexe the noise isn't all that intrusive.
We contented ourselves with strolling round the place and doing a bit of train spotting - plenty of scope for this! Strolling around led us to one gem. Walking along the riverbank towards the boat moorings we came across what could be called a wine bar, or a shed - both descriptions would be accurate. Here, you can have glass of decent local wine for two euros and have a bit of local company.
