We stayed at Gruenberg in the last week of March for 2 nights. I wouldn't have known about this property had I not contacted their sister property (Rheinberg). And I'm really glad I did. Because Gruenberg was a dream come true. I'll love to return to this property and also suggest to my friends.
Its a beautiful house situated right in the middle of tea plantations with greenery all around. It was indeed the most breathtaking view I've witnessed from a hotel room. We had the 2nd floor room to ourselves (Lorelei). And boy, what a huge room it was! There was a full sized window looking out over the plantations and this provided an ideal view for whatever time of the day you want. And this becomes especially beautiful when it rains. The bathrooms were big and clean. A USP of the room was the bluetooth enabled speaker which didnt let us miss our music too!
We enjoyed the food which was very close to home cooked style. Their breakfast was especially noteworthy. Staff was extremely courteous and attentive. They have a plantation walk included in the package although we could not have a long one as weather was not conducive.
I would have probably given them 5 stars, but would restrain myself only on the F&B pricing and approach route. With no other restaurants in the vicinity, one is forced to eat inside and the food was on the pricier side. On the access road, while the management explained they aren't allowed to construct a road, I wish they do something with the (non) existing one at present. I was just thanking my decision of not driving down else it was surely a suspension breaker for any car.
A suggestion: please equip the room with a mini/bar fridge!
