A very nice surprise outside Bamberg. We could not get a room in town but really enjoyed this hidden gem. Family owned p(a)lace with friendly staff, charming and comfortable rooms, an inviting park with historic natural pool (!) and more to explore. We absolutely loved to have dinner and breakfast on the terrace. Restaurant has room for improvement but the... More

The rooms on the ground floor of the secondary building have been recently renovated and were great, white and modern. Dinner was an absolute highlight, especially for the kids. For an amazing five euros each, they had a starter and a main course of great quality after being greeted with colouring materials and a little toy. Dinner was equally enjoyable... More

A fairytale place to stay, beautiful surroundings, magnificent park, stylish rooms and fantastic service. I booked a birthday package and it was simply wonderful, lovely flowers and a beautifully set table. Plus, they were so nice about letting our dog stay as well! I hope to stay here again on the summer and enjoy the swimming pond. Really a gem.... More

We stayed here recently on a short trip to Franconia and were not disappointed. The hotel is in a cute small town and is as neat on the inside as it looks from the outside. Our room was large with high ceilings and a big bath and reminded us of the prior use of the house by the local Bishop.... More

This renovated palace shows how modernisation can function without destroying the character of a place. Everything works, the rooms are tastefully decorated and all modern amenities are present.

I recently booked this hotel for our outdoor teambuilding exercise. We took up 19 of the 23 rooms. It was the perfect base, the rooms were tastefully renovated in a modern style but with character and were comfortable and quiet. The location and the building are both beautiful. It felt like a family business and had a relaxed atmosphere. All... More

We recently stayed here for a weekend in one of their suites as part of their "suite dreams" offer. The room was gigantic and beautifully decorated. The hotel itself is set in a nice park with some big trees and a lovely swimming pond. Dinner on the terrace was a great experience and we especially enjoyed the chanterelle (pfifferling) dishes.

Stayed there for a business meeting and liked the privacy. Very nice restored meeting and sleeping rooms. Excellent bathrooms, excellent food and service. One little cut back was that they had no variety of comforters. As I am allergic to Polyester beds and pillows I asked for some "natural" like wool, silk or feathers/dawns.

For a budget traveler, this is a real splurge at about 130 euros per night, but it affords you a beautiful room with a luxury bath and a buffet breakfast in quiet and restful surroundings.
