Stayed in a 'type 5 or 9' room with balcony - a good size, plenty of storeage and a vast improvement over the cheapest room we stayed in 3 or 4 years ago. Hotel in nice peaceful location about 260 miles from Dunkirk. Good walks from hotel and Abtei Himmerod is an easy walk where you can find a cafe and a bar. If the weather is wet,Trier is not far and worth a visit, or better still visit the excellent spa and perhaps swim with the fish and ducks straight our from the outside suana - Prudes beware, this is a German spa!
We made a bit of a mess with our booking (through inline agent) and forgot to add half board - a but embarrasing when we turned up for the meal, but staff were very obliging and sorted everthing out for us during the evening.
We only stayed two nights on our way to the Black Forest, but the Muhle is definitely a place we are considering for a longer break in it's own right.More
