“A fairytale experience”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

The only way to explain this hotel, the rooms, the staff, the food, the view.... ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL. Was a bit of a splurge but worth every penny. The breakfasts were amazing, but the 4 course dinners were a major highlight! Every night they had a different menu depending on seasonal ingredients - beyond amazing, every single dish. The staff were super helpful and friendly. The gardens were beautiful to wander through, the rooms to explore with historic artefacts and art, and the endless terraces to sit back and enjoy the magnificent view. Anther thing - you must order tea! The teapots are so much fun!

Room Tip: A view of the Rhine, totally worth the extra spend.

We normally do not stay in four star properties, but this was a special birthday occasion. The four of us booked two rooms. Half of the fun is choosing your room online, look at the photos and read the descriptions, all of the rooms are different. We opted for the extra wine and dinner option. Upon arrival, the wine was chilled and waiting in our room along with fruit, chocolate, and sherry. The dinner was fabulous, and the chef added a little extra. The service was outstanding, whenever we looked around, someone was there to direct us through the rooms of the castle to where we wanted to go. The property is full of antiques and artwork and the views are the best. We stayed in room 34 and the bathroom is behind the bookcase. It is a large room and very comfortable. The walk from the parking lot is not long so don't be put off by the description. Luggage service is available, although it is easy to bring a small bag up the short hill. If you want something special, and are willing to pay the price, this property is outstanding.

It was so fitting to spend 24 hours at Castle Hotel Schoenburg after having cruised up the river Rhine looking at fairy-tale castles, churches and vineyards. The Schoenburg has been restored wonderfully! Every corner of the castle is absolutely charming, from the well appointed bedrooms (ours faced the river), to all of the public areas, each with their own appeal. The four course dinner included in the price of the room was one of best meals we had in Germany as was the service. The castle itself is quite the unique experience but the grounds outside the castle are in a class by itself. Plan to spend sometime discovering it. It takes good walking shoes. The grounds have all sort of magical little corners including a library inside a tree house, an outdoor pool table, a life-size chess set, and many sittings areas from where you can enjoy the beautiful vineyards around the castle and grounds. We went as a couple but could see a group of friends coming here for a day or two. Recommend Schoenburg very highly. We had a very wonderful time!

Room Tip: Getting a room overlooking the Rhine would add to the unique experience of staying here.

I have to say I felt like a princess and totally loved this hotel. The grounds are beautiful and the Castle is great. I would have love to stay another night but our itinerary was all booked.

The dinner was awesome and the service was impeccable. It is a must see!

We stayed for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer but were only in that area of Germany for that time. This hotel is absolutely beautiful and such a unique experience to stay in a castle hotel. Our room was very spacious and even included a little library/study. The bathroom was very large with a great soaking tub. We had a balcony overlooking the Rhine as well as another outdoor space in the courtyard. Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were there so we were not able to enjoy this much. The meals included were excellent and add wonderfully to the experience. The staff was extremely helpful and very attentive. One of the best hotels we've ever visited.

We stayed for just one night during our holiday in Germany.
Room was very unique and spacious. Our room also had a cool twist with the bathroom being behind a bookcase. The balcony with the Rhine view was wonderful to have - we enjoyed a bottle of wine out on the balcony and it was very relaxing. The decor and furnishings are a bit on the worn side - and I don't mean "antique" kind of worn, I mean just plain worn out. For the price you pay for a night's stay, seeing couch and chair cushions with holes is a little less than the standard you expect.
The grounds are gorgeous and the views were wonderful - I'd say it's definitely worth staying here at least once just for the dramatic scenery. How often do you get to say that you staying in a castle hotel during your holiday?
The dinner was just okay. The service was great, wine pairings were well selected and attention to detail was paid by the servers and food runners. The atmosphere was nice but, again, with the prices that are charged, there should not be burnt out light bulbs, dust, drooping chandeliers, etc. I would not specifically go to their restaurant and pay for dinner by itself - it was a nice inclusion with the room but, in my view, I don't think the actual meal is worth the charged prices.

This castle hotel is one of the most amazing hotels I have stayed in and I have stayed in a few. We booked the honeymoon room which is actually a two story cottage type pad and it was unbelievable. We weren't on a honeymoon but it felt really special. Sherry to welcome you, lovely lovely inside and a short walk to the hotel reception. Castle grounds are great and the terraces where you can have tea or a drink have views that are world class. the whole place oozes class, the service is outstanding and to be fair this is reflected in the price. the food was good, but not amazing the breakfast was also good but not as good as the rest of the hotel. If you get there late be sure to make arrangements so you can access your room, we arrived at midnight and my family (two young kids) and I had to find a room in another hotel at 2am after 2 hours as no-one would answer the door, apparently I did not ring the doorbell that no-one told me about. to be fair to the hotel, they were genuinely apologetic the next day and did not charge me. Still gets five stars as the place really is stunning.

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite all the way, even if you are not recently married (Room 25). Stunning.
