As part of the 'Magical Markets of the Rhine Valley' with Leger Holidays by Coach. It was a long journey from South Wales and considering the time we arrived the staff were very courteous and helpful, perhaps our Silver Service Leger team of Nigel and Liz helped here because they knew the hotel well.
It's a 'Traditional' German hotel, clean and tidy. And when we arrived there was snow on the ground but during our stay it melted and that picturesque chocolate box thyme went.
We asked for a quite room, after reading previous reviews, and we did get one. Room 114 in the annex. We did hear the bells but not as much as our fellow travelers and if anything they are useful if you are on a tour like ours.
Comparing rooms with other guests opposite, theirs had been re-decorated and had a bath where ours was in need of updating but considerably larger, and only a shower but this was sufficient. We also had a baby's cot which came in handy to stack clothes on ! Also our TV was not LCD or LED or Plasma but since we did not spend that much time in the room it was OK.
The curtains did not close properly and don't expect a brilliant view, actually no view at all except the wooden fence and street light but we used the shutters provided and had very good nights sleep.
Breakfast was very good, varied selections of cereals, juices, fruits, meats, cheeses, eggs and breads and we would definitely recommend the lovely coffee.
Dinner was included in our tour and not expecting much we all found this to be very good and good value. The service was also very good. We had no complaints about the restaurant or the bar.
We even had evening entertainment during our meal and continued late into the night. He was a local singer who fair play kept us entertained, we think he would have liked all of us up to dance but after the markets perhaps it was too much to ask !.
My husband and I walked into the village several times after dinner hoping to find some bar but it was very very quiet, some bars and restaurants looked closed till the spring, so don't expect much nightlife in December. It would be nice to see the village when everything is open.

Room Tip: Quiet room, high floor but not 114, unless they have redecorated.

We arrived late, 1.15am. as part of a Leger Holiday to the Christmas markets of the Rhine Valley.
We arrived late due to snow and a jack knifed lorry, which held us all up. Even under tremendous stress the drivers of our silver service coach were very professional and calm and made us feel safe. The hotel is beautiful, and we were in room 115 in the annexe, next to the church bells. The bells are loud and wake you up at 7.00am, no problem for me, as this is exactly the room we were hoping to get. The bells only do the long peal once, and then just chime on the quarter and half hour, with relevant chimes to mark each hour. It does not distract in any way. Infact it just makes it even more charming. If people have problems with a village church ringing it's bells, then stay away. When a coach tour is booked for this type of place, then you should really be aware of the travel times and the area that is used for accommodation. Our room overlooked the church and the road, we left the window open, as the room was very warm and cosy. The bathroom was beautiful, with a large bath and a large shower. The beds were very comfortable, with 2 pillows each. Freezing temperatures and snow outside added to the magic and beauty of the village of Assmannhausen. The breakfast was very good, with a wide choice of cereals, fruit, meats, cheese, eggs (the best scrambled eggs ever) and boiled, selection of breads, rolls and jams. The dinners were also very good. Yes, the beer was 5 Euros, as it is in most hotels in England, the wine was good and reasonably priced. The staff work tremendously hard to make sure everything is ok, and could not do enough for us. They even provided a nice packed lunch for 4.5 Euros, which was very basic but nice, it did the job. The 2 drivers from Pat's Coaches were excellent. Good fun and very helpful. We knew with this type of coach tour that there was going to be long hours of travelling, and had worked out before that this was to be expected. We had a lovely break in a beautiful part of Germany. We would definitely return to the Alte Bauernshaenke, providing we had room 115 again.

We arrived at the hotel at 2am, courtesy of Leger holidays, a trip I will not repeat. I went straight to reception where I promptly received the keys to my room on the first floor. A pleasant surprise, four poster style bed, in a sizable room. A table and two chairs were provided. The ceiling was quite high. The bathroom was large and had a bath which was fine for me. On entering the room, I found it rather warm, but leaving the windows open for a short while and adjusting the thermostatic valve on the radiators soon produced a more comfortable temperature.
Breakfast was served buffet style with adequate choices including cereals, sliced meats and cheese's. As we were on halfboard, we discovered later that we should have been able to make our choice at breakfast, but no form had been provided.
Meals in the restaurant were good. As has been stated by other reviewers, drink prices are dear, but the "open wine" offered very good value and the wine was excellent. Live music was provided and was certainly enjoyed by some of the tour party. The Dining room was quaint, in a typically German rustic style in line with the name of the hotel.
We had three nights there whilst visiting the local Christmas markets, or rather those that were open. Then another unpleasant shock, a wake-up call at 4am to enable us to leave by 5.30am. I would use the hotel again, but certainly not part of a coach tour.

Room Tip: The bells in the church ring loud and long at 7am, try for a room on the far side of the hotel, or the annex.

Very quaint hotel with lovely architecture. Clean rooms, nice food, buffet breakfast and good service from all the hotel staff. Separate restaurant with lovely carved walls and pretty windows. Would definitely return. There is a wellness centre but we didn't have time to visit.

Room Tip: Some rooms are small but sufficient if using as a base. We heard there are four poster beds in some rooms.
