This is a pretty nice property, although our 2 connecting rooms was pretty dated, they were well kept and slightly upgraded. There is a very nice modern pool and sauna "landscape", either very new or recently upgraded. So, we might have been expecting more modern rooms, but our biggest issue with this place is the level of service... First of...

This is a pleasant hotel with modern amenities. It is set in a park and wooded area and is ideal for walking. The spa and pool area are worth a visit. The rooms are clean and well kept but are in need of refurbishment. The chairs in the room are not comfortable. The bathroom in particular shows wear and tear...

I can only review the restaurant as I did not stay in the hotel. But the restaurant offers excellent traditional food in a nice setting. The view from the restaurant is not the greatest but if you come for the food you will not get disappointed.

Don't trust your GPS..just go right on by about 3.5 km uphill into the forest to find this fine hotel. Construction in progress for a new indoor swimming pool but not a problem. There are two wings to the hotel. We were in Rm 250, a large suite with free excellent wi-fi, two TVs (but no English channels I could...

After we parked, we walked to the front of the Hotel and saw its magnificent charm. The view from the Hotel toward their private...

We arrived at the hotel on a busy Saturday evening and we were very disappointed. The location is indeed beautiful, right in the middle of the woods of Thuringen. The hotel is however not the romantic and stylish place that we had expected according to the the reviews we had read and to the hotel website. Our room was acceptable,...

The hotel is attractively set at the end of a private road a few kilometres south of Ilmenau. Surrounded by forest and mountains it makes for a quiet and pleasant location. There are ample walking tracks including the Goethe Weg from your door step. We walked to Kickelhahn Hill which was a short climb away through forest with a light...
