We stay just 2 nights . This is really 18 century castle. Easy parking. Nice and clean. Rooms are modern and clean. Nice breakfast and good food. Very nice staff. Been very polite, good English speaking. And made for us a good favor. We had freinds to come for breakfast. They did not charge them. Thank you.

Wonderful castle with fantastic exterieur and overall nice atmosphere. However restaurant is open only in certain days and breakfast is average. Rooms are large, but equipment is average. Overall good value for money.

We were going to the Bayreuth Festival but didn't want to stay in the town itself which was overpriced and we wanted base to explore the surrounding area and chose Thurnau which is 20 minutes away from Bayreuth. The hotel is in a castle designed as a hollow square around a courtyard. Although the castle looks as if some of...

A very good and tasty selection of starters with quality bread and salads-I was satisfied with that and the sweets-a pity because the rest of our party enjoyed either roast wild boar , or goose, or fish with accompaniments.Fresh strawberries or fruit salad,or lemon cream--or nectarine dumplings wre on the sweets section.Really, really good and incredable value for money.There are...

We stayed in this castle hotel for only one night. It would have been nice to stay longer. We drove from Nuremberg to Kronach, visited Kronach and Kulmbach for the day, and then drove about twenty minutes to this castle in Thurnau which is also close to Bayreuth. We walked around the lake for scenic views of the castle and...

spacious and stylish room, striking the perfect balance between the historic building and modern comfort! LED lighting, wonderful bathroom, super comfy bed, long enough even for longer people. The only minor glitches where a shower which didn't get hot and barely made it to warm....

This nice hotel has much to offer. History is well preserved and lovely decorations inside. The square outside the reception invites you for a Drink while thinking how was this place in medieval times. A bit off the beaten track, but thats what a real traveller wants, isn't it?

I booked one night in this hotel in the beautiful Thurnau, but the place is so wonderful I asked for another night; a medium size extraclean room and bathroom in a baroque palace; silence and beauty everywhere around, warmly welcomed by the staff, a good breakfast; will stay here again as soon as possible

I have often gone through this town. But my schedule permitted this brief visit. What a nice gem. The schloss is being renovated. Yet many of the site itself is finished. There is a bit of a confusing lobby to check in. Once there all is well. The castle brings one back 400 years, Such clean and medieval edges dominate...

This castle is currently being restored and converted, so the rooms currently available are of the 'conference accommodation' type, clean and simple, but with such an atmospheric and beautiful surrounding. A medieval fortress as a basis, in a charming artesan village - glassware, ceramic studios etc. - with a mind-blowingly lovely church linked by a gallery to the castle, it's...
