Dorint Resort Arnsberg/Sauerland
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Arnsberg
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here few a couple night of R&R and it certainly delivered!
It is located in the most picturesque location in the middle of a Forrest.
If you are after a fast paced break full of night life then avoid this hotel. If you are after a relaxing break then this is ideal.
Hotel has fantastic spa and gym facilities. There are some local towns and villages but don't expect too much.

On the lake. Good views. Enjoyed the restaurant and breakfast. Got emergency laundry done on Sunday- thank you. Typical German holiday hotel. No AC - but not needed. No wifi, would have been nice. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and speak English. It's not a Marriott - you want that stay in a larger city.

We have been at Dorint Arnsberg for the second time - and will certainly come back! I am frequently in the area to visit my relatives, but the stay at the Dorint makes the trip a real holiday. Thanks to the "family rooms", including a sofa-bed for the children and a separate bedroom, night sleep is deep. The great breakfast (including fresh-made waffles and omeletts) guarantees a good start. While the family lingers on for the second espresso and bircher muesli (daddy) or a game of hide-and-seek (children) I enjoy the opportunity to do a swim in the pool or join a fitness class - a rare pleasure for a working mum. Afterwards, you can take a walk in the forest around the hotel, drive five minutes to Neheim city with its many little boutiques and cosy timbered houses or visit lake Möhne. What I like most: Although the Dorint is a business hotel, you never get the feeling that your children are a nuisance. Another plus: When we complained because we were bothered by elevator noise in our room (only a problem in no. 761), the technician really went the extra mile - as he could not solve the problem, not only did he organize a new room for us, but he also carried our luggage down - and all that in a very friendly manner. I was really impressed. All in all: Value for money is very good, especially for families!

Room Tip: Rooms on the "forest side" are quieter and probably less warm in summer. Also, some rooms...

OK room but with +32 Celcius outside and a window/balcony to the west it should really have had some AC.
Beside of that an allright, typical business hotel. For the summer a bit overprized IMO. Summer offers to a far better prize was available for those ordering at a later time than we did.

Internet acces by wifi was extreme slow and could only be some improved if you paid for it. Paying for wifi - what is the next pay a water tax, cleaning tax or whatever.....

Restaurant with breakfast and dinner was OK - especially breakfast - quite good..

All in all "not value for money as expected..."

I speak only a little German but all the staff went out of their way to either speak English or help me understand German. The hotel was lovely and clean, as was my room. The food was excellent and there was a wide choice. Also a wide choice of beverages. I would definately stay there again if visiting the area.

Stayed one night while on a business trip, and found the location hopeless for a runner who is looking for a quick workout after a long day in the office, as the hotel is located on top of a dark hill with no street lights, and hence useless for running after dark. Great German breakfast, but rooms overheated in winter.

The first impression after arrival was that the hotel is overheated but "under-renovated". the charme and unfortunately the smell of the early 70´s is present at all times and in all areas of the hotel. Located in Arnsberg/Sauerland I have chosen the hotel because of the Dorint name and the 4 star classification. The check in was friendly. Then, coming to the room, i thought I went to the sauna. it was well overheated, but even turning the radiator down and opening the window did not really cool down the room. The room gives you anything BUT the feeling to have a home away from home. Everthing is old, lack of maintenance, sometimes dirty and rubbish. the carpets on the floor have dirt smudges, not all of the lights and swith work, the curtains are dirty. The breakfast offers a good variety, but the problem is in detail. some of the things look even really disgusting, part of the food looks like of very poor quality. part of the equipment at breakfast did not work and needed to be repaired before I could use it. From the room you could hear the "autobahn" even at night.

On the positive side I have to mention the following:
- free parking
- next to nature / forest
- over 50 TV chanels
- not far away from a nice restaurant at the "Ruhr river" (called R-Cafe)

Conclusion: The few positive sides cannot compensate the large shortfalls of the hotel. I was highly disappointed from the hotel, would never go there again and have no clue how anyone could rate this hotel in "good".

Room Tip: Choose another hotel !
