The Hotel Dorer is a typical family owned Black Forest hotel very efficiently run by the owners.The food at this hotel is excellent,probably the best food we have had in all our visits over the years to the Black Forest.The service and attention to guests was very good.
The problem I have with this 4* hotel relates to the accommodation which,in my view,is overpriced for what it is.We asked to change from the booked standard room because it was small and we were supposedly given a "Suite" which consisted of a small bedroom ( bed+wardrobe ),an addiional room which had a small seating area and wardrobe and the smallest bathroom ( shower with shower curtain!!) we have ever had.It included a shared balcony which had no views.This was certainly not worth the price we paid and possibly reflects why the hotel was only half full and it was a weekend in July.
Whilst Schonwald is not a pretty village the surrounding countryside is lovely and there is great walking

Family run Hotel with exceptional personal service
Very good Restaurant with emphasis on local cuisine / pleasant and very quite rooms.
Idyllic environment for wandering during summer and skiing in winter
The gym equipment would benefit from a technical upgrade

I just returned from 3 nights at Hotel Dorer where I had a great time. Half pension included a gourmet 5 course dinner with a choice of 3 main courses. The staff was really helpful in suggesting walks and provided a wanderkarte for the area. Especially nice were the walk between Schonach and Schonwald and the walk up to Martinskapelle and then the rund weg around the Rosseck peak.

We didn't ski but there was a small ski slope about 200 meters from the Hotel and a shop next door where you could rent either down hill or cross country skis.

We have just got back from a few days holiday at the Hotel Dorer. The hotel is located in a quite area, in close proximity to the Black Forest's many attractions. Breakfast in the hotel was great, good quality and ample choice, the individual candle heaters at the tables were well-thought of. Rooms were clean and decorated in a traditional style giving them a homely and warm touch. We stayed in a suite and it had all necessary amenities including umbreallas, shoehorn, bathrobs etc. The attention to detail was quite impressive.The hotel has a spa indoor swimming pool which was ideal for relaxing. The staff was very warm and attentive. We found the restaurant a little expensive and dishes were a bit salty, however it was good quality.

Not many choices of restaurants exist in the neighbourhood. The chances of finding a decent place to dine are quite slim. However there is a very nice restaurant/bar nearby.

The only downside of the room was the absence of a bathtub when we had expected it.

Overall it was a great hotel and we would certainly recommend it.

Hotel Dorer is in a beautiful setting. We arrived to spitting snow, but enjoyed our short time in this small town nonetheless. Despite several signs and our maps, we had a little trouble finding the hotel.
The staff was welcoming; the room was nice; the linens were above average; and the breakfast was one of the best on our trip. We had eaten a big lunch the day we drove in, so we opted not to have dinner there. Because we were there before ski season but after the temps were low enough and the clouds heavy enough to make hiking less than enjoyable, there was not a lot to do in Schonwald, but I would give only high marks to the hotel itself.

We stayed for 4 nights on half board basis and everything was just perfect. The 5 course evening meal was excellent with a choice of 2 main courses each night. Our host spent time helping us with the menu and also with sightseeing in the area. Excellent buffet breakfast with choice of fresh fruits cheese meats and eggs. There is a small swimming pool, sauna and fitness room. This is a family run hotel and the attention to detail is remakable. Just a perfect place to stay
