“A perfect holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Badly in need of a good vacation we decided to go further a field than normal and go from NY to the Black Forest. It turned out to be a perfect holiday. We swam, hiked, biked and really relaxed in a very luxurious setting. Great spa facilities. The hotel is lovely, the food is excellent and perhaps most importantly the level of staff and service is tremendous. This is a trip very worth making.

Dear guests

Sometimes it needs such a few words to make other happy. So it was really a pleasure for me reading your lines and sharing your compliments with all staff members at the Hotel Bareiss. They were all very delighted and a bit overwhelmed by your laud.

Thank you very much for this! Your words are not only a motivation, but also an incentive to give our best every day again to offer you, our guests, the comfort and relaxation you deserve and may expect while spending your vacation time with us.

I’m looking forward to welcoming you again at the Bareiss and send our best wishes to you and your family.

With kind regards

Hannes Bareiss

Lieber Gast,

einem Gastgeber kann man kaum eine größere Freude machen, als ihm zu sagen, seine Gastfreundschaft genossen zu haben. Denn was wünscht sich einer für seine Gäste mehr, als dass sie gern gekommen sind und sich wohlgefühlt haben?

Dass Sie zufrieden waren mit Ihrem Bareiss, das macht uns froh, und darauf sind wir auch ein bißchen stolz. Aber diese Ihre Zufriedenheit, versprochen!, lässt uns nicht selbstzufrieden sein, und wir legen deswegen auch nicht die Hände in den Schoß. Auch beim nächsten Mal wollen wir Ihnen wieder unser Bestes geben – die Gastfreundschaft im Bareiss!

Bis zu einem nächsten Besuch, über den wir, mein Vater Hermann Bareiss, das gesamte Bareiss-Team und ich, uns alle hier schon sehr freuen, sage ich: auf Wiedersehen!, und grüße Sie und Ihre Familie recht herzlich aus dem Schwarzwald!

Ihr

Hannes Bareiss

A really perfect dining experience-great food, an outstanding, well-priced wine list, exemplary service, and a comfortable room to collapse in-what else can one say. Oh, and to work off the meal, a very well equipped gym, and tennis court!

We stayed for 4 nights in the week before christmas. Upon arrival, the reception was great, luggage taken out of the car and brought to the room, car was taken care of by the staff, one of the receptionists walked with us to our room. The room was actually not a room but three rooms (because we needed space for our babies (21 and 4 months old)) cots were provided as were baby bathrobes.

After a short walk through the hotel (bar, restaurants, stubes, shopping mall, spa, pool area, fitness room etcetera, the hotel is big) we went for the afternoon cake which is served from 4 o'clock and had tea/coffee and cake.

The first night we had dinner in the gourmet restaurant (see separate review), the other nights in the regular hotel restaurant: the food was of really good quality too, choice of two menus (Vital menu with light healthy dishes and gourmet menu), both are really good.

The breakfast is certainly one of the best in a hotel ever. The hotel bar is nice, bartenders really helpfull and they remember your name and your favourite drink. Service around the hotel is perfect everywhere. In fact the staff everywhere is ready to make your stay perfect.

For the children there are several separate villa's where they are entertained from morning to evening (starting at an age of 3 years) with numerous activities. Ours were to young so the hotel provided baby sitters at a reasonable rate, so that we were able to dine without them in peace.

The pool area is like paradise: normal pool, jacuzzi, baby pool, saltwater indoor whirlpool, outdoor saltwater whirlpool (and several other outdoor pools that were closed in december), lounge chairs, pool bar and a really wel equiped fitness room.

The spa is good, clean and comfortable.

Every day there are activities: hikes, tours, wine tasting, readings, music etc.

In conclusion a stay in hotel Bareiss makes you forget all of your everyday worries and you feel relaxed and pampered.

Is there nothing to critisize?
Although the hotel is (near) perfect there is: our large room had just a small bathroom with an outdated decor and the showerhead almost did fall apart, secondly the hotel does not accept credit cards, which I think is really inconvenient and thirdly reservation of a certain room type is only garanteed from 4 night on. But we will certainly return to Bareiss

Dear guests

‘Thank you!’ What more could we say concerning your marvellous evaluation.
Your words are ‘kudos’ to the whole team in the Hotel Bareiss and I am really glad to submit it to our staff. After reading your lines, I was so happy to note that we are, obviously, doing a good job and that our guests feel at home and satisfied at the Hotel Bareiss.

I would like to take the opportunity to inform you that we will make a start on enlarging the capacity in the lounger area of our Pool and Sauna Environment in March 2012. Furthermore, we establish a steam room, an ice fountain, a sanarium, a Finnish Sauna, a fireside lounge and a relaxation room.

Furthermore, I am very delighted that you enjoyed our extensive breakfast choice. It is of great importance for us that your start of day leaves no wish unfulfilled.

Where there is light, there is shade. So I am really thankful for your remarks concerning your room. I spoke with the responsible head of department immediately to clear up these details.

As for the matter of non-acceptance of credit cards, I would like to express our decision: As the hotel has an average utilisation of nearly 90 percent forming the basis for our price structure we adopted a long-term pricing policy to offer our guests an optimal ratio of price and benefits with competitive prices. To give you an example: to secure the quality of the services offered for a maximum of 230 guests, 240 employees are required which is one reason for not having the margin to pay fees for credit card companies or other fees which we would not like to hand on to our guests. For this reason we do not accept credit card payments for the room account. The restaurant bills are excluded from this regulation.

The situation is similar with our so called ‘Bareiss category price’ which we offer you at your stay of less than 4 nights.

We understand that our guests are sometimes not very happy with these details but we ask for your comprehension as we cannot act differently for economic purposes. We hope that you understand this procedure and do not misinterpret it as an arrogant behaviour. The reverse is true: we want to accord our guests directly the maximum of services for their optimal benefits of an all around enjoyable stay.

We would be very happy to welcome you again being your hosts. Until then, I would like to say ‘Goodbye’ to you and your little babies.

With kind regards

Hannes Bareiss

We stayed here for 1 night only on a trip through the Black Forest - we will be back. The staff is one of the friendliest we've ever encountered, can't describe how sweet they are. The food is exceptional and the hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays. We did not have time to enjoy, but we took a peek at the spa and it was extremely nice, seem to offer anything you would need for a nice pampering. We will come back in the summer when we can enjoy a good hike on the nearby trails and then an even better pampering in the spa and pools.

Dear Mrs and Mr MacEachern

The pleasure about your lovely compliments is entirely mine.

Indeed, it is a great joy to us, my father Hermann Bareiss, the team of the Hotel Bareiss and me, being able to enthuse our guests the way we were able to enthuse you.

We would be very pleased to welcome you again this summer and maybe you will share some time with our hiking guides and other guests, or just on your own. Please let us know at any time how we can support you. We would be very happy being your host.

Thank you very much for your comment concerning our spa area. In March 2012, we will carry out some structural alteration works in this part of the hotel. The house will then be closed for three weeks. After that, a newly renovated and redecorated spa and pool area is at your disposal!

Until then, I would like to say goodbye and wish you and your whole family a belated happy New Year and all the best, luck and health for 2012.

Best regards

Hannes Bareiss

+Huge Penthouse suite (Bareiss no1), wonderful modern bathroom, three balconies, jacuzzi, sauna, sun bed, a bit over the top.
+incredible staff. follow your every whine and wish. made a particular effort to speak french when they found out we were a french family, which was an amazing touch, i have to say.
+food is overall of great, great quality. the restaurant system is a bit weird but you quickly get used to it
+pool area was big and beautiful. sometimes a little too crowded but it was bearable. outdoor whirlpool (litteraly a reaal whirl pool) was fun and very warm, always good in cold weather
+plenty of activities meant we never got bored ! ride bikes, the sattelei chalet always very welcoming (excellent flammekuche!)

-the guests of the hotel seem to be very old. mostly big families (grand parents, parents, children, uncles, aunts) which gives a particular atmosphere to the hotel. we didn't have a problem with that, but i wouldn't go to this kind of hotel with friends or as a couple, it isn't very enticing.
-while walking around on our floor (all the penthouse suites are on the same floor), we realized our suite was one of three that haven't been (or didn't look like) they were renovated yet. we felt a bit cheated, indeed the room (except the bathroom) felt slightly dated and worn out.

overall, a good experience, the staff were really great, the property was well maintained. no big complaints.

With pleasure I forwarded your compliments to our staff members and you can imagine how delighted they were about it.

Your comments concerning the penthouses are very useful and important for us. Since 2008, we renovate and modernise our rooms step by step to follow the wishes and expectations of your guests. I will discuss the matter with the responsible concerning your remarks. Nevertheless, we are very thankful for your comments.

We are striving every single day to do our best for our guests, reconsidering our services and achievements. The laud as well as the comments and criticism are very helpful and increase the motivation and the inducement of the staff members. It therefore helps us to get closer to our goal of being your vacational home.
Our philosophy is to treat our guests at eye level, with respect and highest attentiveness.

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you about some extensive renovations we are planning concerning our spa and pool area which shall be realised in spring 2012 – enlargement on the one hand and rearrangement on the other hand and would be glad to welcome you again.

I am looking forward to welcoming and seeing you on your next visit in the
Black Forest. Until then I wish you all the best and remain
