“Excellent for a short stay”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Perfect location towards the city centre of Winterberg. We prefer to be close to the centre but far enough to avoid nightly noises from the street. Very good service. We had one of the larger double rooms, which was great because I love my space. Sweet little balcony. Would definitely come again when visiting.

Room Tip: My, slightly more expensive, top floor room was absolutely perfect. Room 28.

As a last minute quick getaway before Christmas break we decided to go skiing for a couple of days. Living in the Netherlands Winterberg is the obvious choice if your short on time.

Because we were going to be out all day (skiing) and out enjoying the nightlife in the evening it wasnt too important to stay in a hotel with alot of ammenities, the basics would suffice. However a hotel close to the skilifts was highly prefered. Hotel Forsthaus was one that fit the bill

Its a family run hotel with a main building and a smaller pension up the street (about a 60 meter walk). We booked a double comfort room and were put up in the pension. The room itself was a little on the small side but very clean. The bathroom however was very roomy and very contemporary which was a bonus. One minor quirk was that the built-in closet was in the bathroom.

The included breakfast was good and the overall service was GREAT. I usually stay in larger hotel chains and it was refreshing to receive such personal attention from the staff and owners.

in short the pros : * good location to the "Skiliftkarussell Winterberg", I'd advise taking the car for the 5 min drive because its up hill.
* walking distance to the town centre (the walk back to the hotel is downhill which is good after a night out)
* clean rooms with a good sized bathroom
* great service
cons: * room size could have been a little larger
* skilifts werent in walking distance

Would I recommend the hotel to my friends? I sure would!

We booked 3 nights at the Fursthaus and stayed an extra night because it was so nice. It's a small family run establishment with a very nice restaurant and just a couple of minutes wander into the town of Winterberg. Very close to the railway station - 3 minutes walk - but don't let that put you off because it's an end of the line station and we didn't hear a single train all the time we stayed there. The husband and wife team that run the Fursthaus were charming and perfect hosts. Lots f loveley walks to do right from the hotel so you hardly need a car at all. Winterberg had lots of nice little restaurants and shops and it was very picturesque.
Would we go back - YES most definitely. Next time we'll go in the winter to enjoy some snow.
