I became a huge fan of this venue through use of it over a five-year tour of duty (2000-2005) for the US DoD. My principal booked me into this hotel before I arrived. They met all my needs, and then some. We used them for faculty parties often and the local teachers' association used them for regional meetings, too.
I never stayed in the main building, but the annex around the bend. The rooms were always spacious for tons of PCS luggage. I even got help from the waitress at the dining room in hoisting my heavy bag. I'd arrived after a tough surgery and was not yet able to lug it into the building from the cab.
Since this venue was probably the most convenient for the US Military, their business practices accomodate even those least familiar with customs and language for the region.
There are tables outside decked with copious geraniums, umbrellas for tables, and a fountain, a lovely dining room and three private spaces for meetings and parties.There's a huge garden area for outdoor gatherings. I even used them to accomodate a visitor who'd arrive a day before me, and they even accepted my toiletries I'd gathered to welcome my friend to Germany. Since they all speak English, no one has trouble arriving fresh from the USA without any briefing or classes on German culture and language.
I never had a bad meal here. The Bernaise sauce for one entree was legendary. We had a 5 course meal for a faculty party of at least 30 people that went off without a hitch. It was the high-light of the year! The menus is diverse enough to accomodate a lengthy stay without becoming bored.
There's extra parking just down the street in a public lot, a castle up the hill, and a nice public swimming lake a little farther down the street. There's a Bundespost and a bank within walking distance. This can be a great introduction to the region for families on vacation, newly arrived Americans to the area, or couples on a romantic escape. I used it as a great Happy Hour spot on many occasions, and a perfect summer lunch stop on others. My friends used a small private room for their book club, another group used a different private room for a "good bye" party. A large room for business meetings has good ammenities for electronic presentations.
