“Black Forest Beauty”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights on a riving trip around southern Germany. This was our first visit to the Black Forest and you can't get much deeper into it than this hotel. Steeped in history and family owned for centuries, this hotel certainly knows how to offer Black Forest hospitality. I suspect there are not too many English speaking guests that stay at this small town, let alone this hotel, but all of the staff made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to introduce themselves to us,translate the menu and chat. Our doubleroom had a balcony and a fabulous view of the forest. Comfortable beds and small bathroom. The meals of course are a hi-light and the evening meal is 4-5 courses of delicious locally sourced food. Lots of Black Forest and German specialities for guests to try.Breakfast is equally good and sets you up for the many walks available from the hotel. The spa is also a treat with steam rooms, saunas and a nice indoor pool to try. There were some children staying here, but the guests were mainly older/retirees. The autumn colours were stunning and the surrounding forests and walks, invigorating.

We visited the Kesslermuehle for two nights commencing 21 April. The journey to the hotel through he Alpine roads of the Black Forest was a thoroughly enjoyable experience; we had many panoramic views of the beautiful countryside. On arriving at the hotel we were delighted by the location - just on the edge of the village with open views over the countryside yet handy to walk into the village- the reception and public rooms are all to a very high standard, pleasing on the eye and very tastefully furnished. Our room was spacious well equipped and wonderful views ; we had a very high quality bathroom , a large bedroom agea and a separate seating area with lounge furniture opening onto a full size balcony.
The hotel has a very attractive swimming pool with sun beds over looking the southern vista, in addition there is a Sauna and two Turkish baths , again with separate shower facilities.
The bar is well stocked and leads into the dining room. The menu is extensive and nothing too much trouble for the staff; if you don't like what's on the menu you can choose something else. Evening meal consisted of a starter , a very extensive mouth watering salad buffet, a main course and desert. The wine list was extensive and nothing was too much trouble for the team.
Breakfast was another experience; we had so much to choose from there was something for everyone; I am particularly impressed by German bakers as the wide selection of breads and pastries is the best I have ever tasted!
On our last morning we were supplied with paper bags and encouraged to take a packed lunch of whatever we likes from the breakfast buffet.
The hotel supplies mountain bikes and we took then for a spin round the local lake both on and off road...
We would go back to the hotel without hesitation and would happily recommend it as it must be one of the best in the Black Forest!

Room Tip: Make sure you have a balcony - most have

We booked the Hotel Kesslermuehle for 7 nights half board and were lucky to get the last available room. From the minute we arrived to the end of our stay we have nothing but praise for every aspect of this hotel. Very few English visit the hotel and all of the staff went out of their way to practice speaking English to us or let us practice our German on them! Every day our menus were specially typed in English for us. The breakfast and dinner were excellent with plenty of choice. Our room was spacious, comfortable and spotless with a south facing balcony. The swimming pool was very well maintained and a good size. I didn't get a chance to try the spa facilities but was told by other guests that they were excellent - definitely a reason to return.
Although we were not very fortunate with the weather we had a wonderful and relaxing holiday. The Meisinger and Birkenberger families are welcoming hosts and Florian, Katya, Danny and everyone else, thank you so much.

Room Tip: Book early
