We had a large spa in our room (which we did not use) with a nice ensuite. I would stay here again if I... More

Perfectly located in the heart of Hahndorf with offstreet parking. With a bit of TLC this motel could be fantastic but in our room the shower head did not hold up, the spa looked very tired and not clean, lots of silicone filled the gaps around the bathroom cabinet, the fridge was just a tiny bar fridge, the curtains were...

We have just spent two nights at the Stables .It is by far the most comfortable stable I have ever slept in. Donna was very helpful & certainly went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable . We found everything very clean & fresh. We would recommend the Stables as a top place to stay Rita. & Colin King

You couldn't ask for a more central location with the property being right in the main street. There is plenty of parking at the back. From the time of booking to checkout we found the owners/hosts very helpful and pleasant to deal with.
