HOTEL REVIEW # 216 Burg Wernberg
MY TRAVEL STYLE: If possible, I try to stay away from business hotels and strongly prefer resorts that resemble the Four Seasons, Aman, and Oberoi but try to find similar properties at lower cost. I seek out the “wow” experiences.
LOCATION: 2-3 hours from Munich/Frankfurt and in a castle
BEST WAY TO GET THERE: Rent a car. The closest airport is probably Nurenburg, about 60 minutes away.
TYPE OF ROOM: Deluxe (1 level upgrade from standard and a huge difference)
BED/SHEETS/PILLOW: Mattress is OK and sheets and pillows are of excellent quality.
LIGHTING: A bit dark in the room with adequate lighting in the bathroom.
BATHROOM/SHOWER: Corner shower enclosure (common in Europe). Good water pressure and consistent temperature.
TOILETRIES: High quality, name brand.
CLEANLINESS: Hotel common area and room is very clean
A/C: NO AC in room and didn’t need. Opening the windows was adequate (even in the summer).
STYLE OF ROOM: Nothing special… a bit boring for being in a castle.
COMMON AREA: Nice but
QUIET/MORNING LIGHT: Room was very quiet but not all of the morning sunlight could be blocked (thin curtains)
FOOD: 2 star Michelin restaurant… even the food at the wedding was amazing. Breakfast is 18E and had a better than average selection of items but wasn’t impressed.
TV/INTERNET: TV seemed a bit small for the room and didn’t use. Internet is at no charge and had a good speed.
SERVICE: Service as OK at best
SUMMARY: We had a very enjoyable time but having stayed in a few other castles, we actually preferred the other ones more.
