I had 4 days and I confirm it is a wonderful place to overnight. Clean room, warm people,I felt as at home.
We did 2 days training and courtesy, good food and top service have been perfect.
I am keen to come back in September
I travelled to a Hotel Gut Schmelmerhof for a second time with my husband. We were looking for a spa hotel in that area for a while, and then decided to go back to this one for the second time, as it offered a great service at an acceptable price (comparing to other spa hotels). They also always have a great deals such as stay 3 nights get the 4th for free etc. The rooms are very clean and tidy.
Special hands up to a restaurant, the food was really good, taking into account that it was already included in the room price. The service at a restaurant is one of a really high standard and when you are there try a "waldwasser" from a local spring ;) We would definitely come back for one more time during winter holidays!!!
We've booked the hotel to spent a quiet wellness weekend in Bavaria (not far from CZ border).
The hotel has a great country atmosphere, with great restaurant with pleasant ambience.
The staff (reception, wellness, restaurant) very helpfull, smiling all the time and pleasant.
The wellness area is a little bit small, we supposed a larger wellness, however we have enjoyed.
The facial procedure was at standard level (Unfortunately the lady, who did the procedure, was too hectic, leaved the room many times while I was relexing and it was disturbing me and it spoiled the whole calm ambience of the procedure it should have.)
The room was large (we had a room for 2Adults and 1 child 3 y.o.) with a spacy bathroom and separate toilette with bidet.
We spent 2 days at the hotel (did not leave it for 48 hours) and we can recommend it.
A hidden gem about 30km from Straubing, this hotel has it all. Superb staff, excellent food, beautiful rooms, a charming restaurant and a fantastic pool / spa area – all served up ancient Bavarian charm. We stayed for two nights in July and we could not find fault with anything – simply superb in every sense.
Our superior room was large and beautifully appointed with a balcony which overlooked the forest. Breakfast at this hotel is something to behold and was certainly one of the best we’ve ever had. All food is served in the hotel’s old cattle house – an incredible series of rooms on the ground floor of the hotel with vaulted ceilings (see the photos!).
We spent a day in the spa area. There is a decent sized pool and a hot tub, a chill out room, three saunas and one steam room. In addition, there are about 12 ‘treatment rooms’ which the Mrs got all excited about. I read a book in a day – and then headed to Straubing’s Jazz festival in the evening – a perfect day?
What else can I add? There is free wireless internet access in the hotel lobby - free parking (lots of it). There is no gym here though - that is one potential improvement - perhaps bike hire would be a nice touch as well.
Highly recommended. If you’re looking for a decent hotel in a very quiet area of Eastern Bavaria, look no further. I just wish I had had my mountain bike with me – I would have been in cycling heaven. Nevermind, I now have an excuse to go back…
I have stayed here twice - in Sept, and Oct 2007.
The "Wiesengrund " rooms are a superior room for which you pay a little extra. The room priced on a b/b basis cost €134 per night - for two persons. The rooms are large and comfortable. Both bath and shower ( over bath ) are available in the room.
The food is good - on a half board basis the evening meal is in one of the pleasant dining rooms , or you can eat a la carte in the "stube" ( bar ) which is also fine .
The area is very quiet and peaceful , and the staff are attentive and friendly.
2 pools are available - inside and out, plus other spa facilities.
Parking is outside , but in my opinion they should extend the parking available. Garages are also available at €5 per night - good if you wish to have your car fully secure .
The family Schmelmer are friendly ,and in attendance.
In conclusion I would say that one or two nights here would be a fine experience.
