Adding to the other comment, this is a really nice hotel in a beautiful old castle (Schloss in German). Slight correction to the other review, the hotel actually is located in Bensberg (the reason for the name) which, while officially part of Bergisch Gladbach, has its' own charming city center eight kilometers (five miles) from the Bergisch Gladbach city center.

The Schlosshotel is part of the ultra luxury chain Althoff which also has the beautiful Schloss Lerbach in nearby Bergisch Gladbach (with one of the best restaurants in Europe). In the Schlosshotel you should also make sure to dine in the Vendome which is Michelin star decorated and won Restaurant of the Year by Germany specialty magazine Feinschmecker in 2001.

Try to get a room with a view towards Cologne since you might be able to spot the spectacular Cologne Cathedral on a clear day. Standard rooms are nice but a little small. If you can afford it, book one of the nicer rooms, it is worth it.

Staff is very friends and speaks perfect English and many other languages. The hotel has quick Autobahn access to Cologne so could also be used if having to work in Cologne. When I stayed there in 2002 there were some small service issues which will have very likely been taken care of by now.

As an airline employee, I have had the opportunity to visit some of the best vacation spots in the World along with their finest hotels. Out of all of the places I have been in the world, the Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg is the best. The hotel is definitely not for the leisure family traveler with children, but more for couples looking for an exciting weekend getaway. The rooms are fabulous and come with complimentary mini bar service and fruit service which is replenished on a daily basis. The rooms feature goose down comforters and the room steward turns down your bed each evening and accompanies it with a chocolate mint. The bathrooms are decorated in marble, have a huge soaking tub and complimentary use of plush & terry cloth robes, plus slippers. The indoor pool area is magnificent and much of the pool area is trimmed in gold. The pool itself is very refreshing with a waterfall at one end to add to the elegance. The pool area also features a hot tub, which is set off to the side. Because of the elegance of this hotel, there are seperate elevators to access the pool so that guests do not walk through the lobby in their swimming attire. Bergisch Gladbach is a beautiful little town not too far from Cologne (Koln) which offers some great little Italian restaurants just down the hill from the hotel. My advice: visit in February and you might be lucky enough to get a dusting of snow on the hotel which provides for a magnificent backdrop!
