The Krug in Hattenheim is in a great 18th C. house, near the Rhine but within a historic village and so no river view. It has its own vinyards and a restaurant which I would judge one of the best, and the best as regards price/value, in the Rheingau, which is one of Germany's main gourmet regions. Gault Millau ranked the restaurant's wine menu the most interesting one (I think) in its last review. The decoration is traditional German-Rhenish; this is not to everyone's taste, but many love it. It's owned and run by one family which takes this very seriously, and that is a great touch.
As my usual hotel was booked for one night I had to spend in the area, I asked for a room there, and it turns out they have some 15 rooms or so. Mine was quite large, with a sitting area, a huge double bed, the same "ye olde Germanie" deco as the restaurant, a small TV, wireless internet (weak in my room but free), huge bathroom, and a plate of fruit, house champagne (Sekt), lemonade, and water for free - most uncommon hereabouts. Parking is tricky but provided, and free. Of course, this is an inn, so no spa and the like. The breakfast was much weaker than expected from a gourmet restaurant, but good coffee and nice rolls.
In sum, for €75 this was really a good deal (special corporate rate though). If one does not need the Rhine front and spa facilities, it's a great place. And the restaurant remains spectacular.
