Bucket List Castle Experience

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 Dec 2023via mobile
My husband and I had a wonderful night in this castle hotel. The bed was by far the most comfortable we have ever experienced in Europe. We had an excellent night’s sleep. Several things to note… we stayed in the top floor room #4 which included a living area, bathroom with small shower and bedroom with a very large bed. The Rhein River views are stunning. The room was a bit tricky to get to, up two flights of very steep winding stairs with low ceiling. The staff helped us get our bags to the room by creating a chain and passing them up. Another thing to note is when we arrived by train in the month of December, the website instructions did not work for us. The hotel you walk to for the shuttle was closed. We called the castle and the owner, Nickinig, was kind enough to come and pick us up. He also drove us back to the train station the next morning. We enjoyed the dinner and breakfast service, as well. Dinner is a normal German menu with choices for starters, main and dessert. It was all very tasty and reasonably priced. We would definitely stay again.

          This castle was built in the 1200's and is the highest castle on the Middle Rhine River. How it was built and how many people it took to complete the construction with techniques of the middle ages is mind boggling to me. It now features a hotel and a restaurant.

          We stayed here for 3 nights when we were on the Rhine. The rooms were comfortable and well-decorated to match the castle ambience; the main dining room was particularly impressive. The breakfast was ample, and they provided gluten-free bread for our kids. The staff/owners were friendly and helpful. The dinner food was good. For awareness—the rooms do not have A/C, and the castle is out of the way of most key sites and cities, but we didn’t find getting around by car to be an issue. The price is quite reasonable given what you get for your stay.

          We stayed here for a night in late May (2023) while driving up the Rhine. Great experience! Great room overlooking the river and the owners have explicitly appointed the castle to make it feel like you’re staying in a castle (but with modern comforts). Service was excellent. Definitely recommend

          When you want a true Castle Hotel..It looks the part inside and out.Great view of the Rhine and its sister castle,next door. Very narrow staircase. So pack light.Wr did the half board by candlelight, looking down at the ships going up and down the Rhine.

          Room tip: Just a small suitcase

          My wife and I, along with our small dog, stayed here over a weekend in July. Everything was wonderful. We were met by the owner who was very cordial. The rest of the staff were all also very friendly. The location and views of the Rhein and surrounding country were amazing. We were provided a wonderful breakfast each morning and enjoyed our evening meals on the outside terrace enjoying the wonderful views. The room was quite large; however, the staircase getting to the room was quite narrow. There are many hiking trails in the surrounding forest which to explore and enjoy breathtaking views. Overall, it was a wonderful and unique experience.

          Room tip: Highly suggest a Rhein View Room
