Riquewihr is such a dream town and this hotel was just the final piece in the puzzle. A minute walk from the main gate of town, peaceful and inviting. The various women in the reception were all welcoming and very nice. Even though we had a room facing the parking lot, it was still quiet (nothing can be noisy there). But if you get a room facing the other side, where the vines are, the quiet would be double! I hope to return there one day.

Having come across this hotel last year as we travelled back to England from Austria, we so liked what we saw that we decided to return for a short break.

The Schoenenbourg is just 150 metres outside the walls of the stunning medieval town of Riquewihr, so is handy for all the attractions, but away from the daily hustle and bustle in a peaceful location.

Initially we thought we were going to be thwarted as the Best Western site showed 'no availability', so I called the hotel direct and sure enough, although they were quite full, they had rooms to spare. We booked a Comfort Room on the first floor which was newly refurbished, air conditioned, had a large modern bathroom (no bath though, just a shower), coffee and tea facilities in the room and free use of the safe. There is no milk in the room, but if you go to reception they will give you a small jug of fresh milk which you can keep cool in the mini bar - much better than that awful powdered or long-life muck!

The hotel serves a continental breakfast for €12.50 or you can venture into town for something to eat. Beware of the French rigid approach to eating times though - petit dejeuner - breakfast - is not served after 9.30am. We tried to get served in a small bakery at 9.35 one day and despite the fact that it was empty, other than us, we got a stern 'Non!' when we asked for breakfast. We replied suitably by walking out of the place rather than having something else they had to offer and found a more accommodating restaurant down the hill!

The hotel does not serve dinner, but there are many good restaurants in the town. I would recommend La Grappe d'Or - 100 metres up from the Hotel de Ville and down the alleyway on the right. The food is excellent and sensibly priced, the service is good and they speak English fluently - something that you will find many restaurants do not do. Always try and book a table in La Grappe d'Or because if you just turn up, you are likely to be disappointed, such is the reputation of the place.

Riquewihr is superbly situated to explore the rest of the Alsace region and I would suggest following the wine trail which runs both North and South. There are some wonderful small towns to see and I would particularly recommend visiting Eguisheim, Kaysersburg, Hunawihr, Ribeauville, Chatenois and the Chateau du Haut Koenigsbourg. Ribeauville has one of the cheapest fuel stations in France and I paid €1.32 for a litre of diesel compared with €1.46 almost everywhere else (in the UK it is currently the equivalent of €1.73!!!!!!)

After you have spent a day travelling it is nice to unwind around the pool which is just across from the front of the hotel.

The wrong staff can ruin a hotel, but I am pleased to say that at this hotel, they are one of its greatest assets. They have a good attitude and are extremely helpful which gets them a big thumbs up from me.

All in all this hotel feels better than the 3 star rating it is given and far surpasses many other Best Western hotels we have seen in France.

This hotel really was very good. I would highly recommend it. There was free parking, they were very helpful with the fact that we have a young baby. The rooms were very comfortable and lovely and clean, and the setting was wonderful - our room backed onto a hill covered in vins. The pool looked lovely and you are right on the edge of this small historic town - it was all perfect!

My husband, baby, and dog just stayed the weekend at Hotel le Schoenenbourg. We stayed in a standard room, but wish we would have booked a comfort room because the room was very hot without air conditioning. Other than that, the room was very comfortable, clean and the hotel staff was very friendly. I am happy we stayed outside the wall because the view of the vineyards was beautiful. There are stairs right next to the hotel restaurant that goes up to a trail along the vineyards. It is a very beautiful hike.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back side of the hotel have a beautiful view of the vineyards and seem quieter than the ones facing the parking lot. I would choose a comfort room for the air conditioning in summer because there is not great ventilation in the standard room with no balcony.
