Amazing entrance, gives the real castle feel, but you can tell it's had some amazing renovations done. Room was very welcoming, neat and provided incredible views. Everything was so neat about this place. Very much enjoyed the restaurant too, eating by the lake view was fantastic. If you want to experience a castle in a classy hotel, this is the way to go. Went here with my brother on a roadtrip around Germany. Cost a few pennies, but if you can make it out to Waldeck, it's definitely worth it.

This is a first class restored castle hotel with an excellent restaurant and a small museum on site. Unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked druing our stay but there are plenty of restaurants in the nearby town which is an easy walk from the castle. The breakfast was quite good and included in the room rate. The rooms were very modern however as is the German way there are no screens on the windows so during the night a lot of flying insects entered the bathroom through a small open window. There was a small spa in the hotel that was free for the guests which was not crowded and quite modern.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the lake are nicer but it is difficult to figure out from the booking form which rooms these are.

We stayed at the Schloss Waldeck in February to celebrate my husband's birthday- He's always wanted to sleep in a castle, and loved it!

We opted for a standard room, and it was very nicely done. There were some castle elements- exposed beams and a window alcove in our room- but the castle interior has been renovated, so our room didn't overtly "feel" like a castle. That being said, all the other features of the hotel make up for that- the restaurant, the lobby, the bar, and the hallways.

The views of the lake were great- and we could see parts of the countryside and the castle from every window. The free breakfast was plentiful, with a wide variety of choices- and because we stayed in the winter, the price per night was very reasonable.

The town of Waldeck is pretty sleepy though in the middle of winter- and we were disappointed that the grocery store closes early on Saturday (and is completely closed on Sunday). There's not a ton to do in the area except drive from little town to little town- but it's perfect for relaxing. We would recommend going to see Fritzlar if you are in the area!

This is one of the best hotels ever! Receptionist was professional, friendly and gave you all tips and information needed... We did an upgrade to premium room, and it was worth every penny. Our lake view, room, bathroom, and the bed... Just loved it. If you need to relax, this is place to be.
You don't have WiFi at room, but I think, it's not a problem, cause you are not going to this place to work, I guess.
The restaurant was quite expensive, but really delicious. If you want to impress someone, please, treat him/her here!
Well, enough written, just go and enjoy!

The castle is very beautiful and has a amazing view of the lake. It has a SPA, two restaurants and a small but interesting museum. The negative side is that, although from the exterior the castle is very beautiful, from the interior it has been completely remodeled and does not look like a castle at all. The sole exception is the reception which still displays rock walls. So if you are interested in a castle hotel whose ambiance "feels" like a castle, this is most likely not the place to go. Another downside is that although we selected to stay in a comfort room with the lake view (which is more expensive), the window in the room was very small and somewhat high, so the only way to actually see the view from the room was by standing at the window.
