“Accordion Festival”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay for the five nights of the festival. Rooms were very clean and staff very friendly and helpful when needed. My only observation would be that the breakfast eating area was somewhat limited for the number of folks using it. You had to use the room very early or toward the end, but the items available for breakfast were very adequate. We have already booked or rooms for the Leaf Festival in September and the Accordion Festival next June again.

I recently booked a spacious, two-room suite with kitchen for an overnight trip with 4 grandchildren. I was impressed with the friendly staff (each one I encountered whether at the front desk or the pool area) and cleanliness of the Der Ritterhof. We were in a side building facing the mountains. The view was spectacular. The pool was clean and there were lots of new, clean, comfortable pool chairs. The kids were still frolicking in the pool when it normally would have been time to close it. The manager let them play and came back later. She said it was, "because they were having so much fun" which was a nice personal touch. The kids were in the pool a couple of different times so went through a number of pool towels. Front desk staff were patient and kind with them. There are large grassy areas, for romping, playing soccer etc.The continental breakfast was fine. I found this hotel was the most reasonably-priced of the hotels I reviewed online. As a side note-when traveling with 4 children I try to take the most cost effective path. Goodies from the bakery and ice cream store are expensive. But it is a treat to splurge and then sit on a bench outside or in the little park across the street and enjoy the atmosphere of this little German town. Among the variety of little shops are a couple of very good toy stores. Each grandchild brought their own money to shop with. At the west side of town is a great putt-putt golf course we all enjoyed. **On Sundays you can get in with a donation of two cans of food for Leavenworth's food bank. Having each grandchild bring food from their own home to contribute, opened a dialogue for "making a difference" where we can. There is a Safeway at the east of town for purchasing food to prepare for dinner in your suite.

We had a great time staying at the Der Ritterhof. Not all hotel staff are pleasant to children, even well-behaved children. Some hotels seem to consider children a "necessary nuisance". The staff at the Der Ritterhof were nice to all of us.

We drove out of town in the van trying to yodel like the man we heard in the park. It was hilarious. While they may not have enjoyed the German music it was good for them to experience what we all know they wouldn't choose to listen to on their own.

I look forward to returning in August with adults to enjoy the "Sound of Music" at the outdoor theatre, fine dining and a good beer on an outdoor patio and beauty of the mountains in this enchanting town. I will book at the Der Ritterhof for another great experience.

I think the Der Ritterhof would be a great place for a family reunion. It is a large property with a big barbecue behind the pool area. Large grassy areas are appealing. I saw a pop up shade tent outside one room and a place for RVs.

Room Tip: Ask to face the mountains.

A nice place to stay, good location near the main street of Leavenworth. Room was big and bed was comfortable. Staff were friendly and continental breakfast was nice. Price was very affordable and would stay again. Thanks for making our first trip to Leavenworth a pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd floor have vaulted ceilings so feel larger and probably cooler in summer. Try to get ro...

The Der Ritterhof is a very nice place to stay. The staff is very friendly and welcomes you with friendly smiles. The rooms are very large and comfortable with great views, rooms also have patios. Great deal for the cost of the stay which includes breakfast. Very close to the restaurants, shops, and the river walk. Highly recommend and will stay their again. Not a better deal in Levenworth.
Thanks

Room Tip: The upper rooms have the high vaulted ceilings

The Der Ritterhof Motor Inn is a great place to stay in Leavenworth. It is located near restaurants and about 3 blocks to the downtown shopping area. It is also not far from the river walk. It has an ok swimming pool, our room was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is nicely landscaped. The continental breakfast was the best we have seen, fresh fruit with yogurt, mini muffins, toast, bagels, bananas, juices, hot and cold cereals, hard boiled eggs, some sweet rolls. The breakfast was nicely presented, and coffee anytime you wanted. The swimming pool towels were exceptional. The bed was comfortable, the bedding was the new style the hotels are using now, with multi pillows. Plus, the room was a nice size. This is not a new hotel, but has been nicely redone, and a very good bargain for the price. We were riding motorcycles. There was plenty of good parking on site.

A very warm and welcoming reception upon our arrival. The rooms are large and comfortable as are the beds. Love the two sinks with one being outside the shower/toilet room. The beds are very comfortable with lovely linen. . Loved the outside yard to lay on the grass, relax and soak in the sun after a long day of motorcycle riding. The pool looked inviting however never didn't indulge. A great location to walk down town and indulge in the local ambiance. Would definitely return to your accommodation to be pampered.
