We ventured here many times for an out of the way place to stay, and found the owner eccentric and very cool. The first time (in the 90's) he greeted our taxi; checked us in; showed us to our "room" (which was an entire tower section); greeted us for dinner and was there for breakfast and checked us out as well. We returned several times and treated this like our very own private castle. The hillside and woods around are nice to explore and are very private. There is a lovely French restaurant downstairs, with an enormous wooden bar, and we were surprised to find the only other patron there at an early hour was an American who lived just 5 miles from us back at home. Eventually Europeans filled the restaurant at a more respectable dinner hour of 9 pm. From this location you can visit Bonn, The University of Bonn, drive along the Rhine and tour other castles.

As part of our trip down the river we stayed at Kommende Ramersdorf. The service was excellent. The converted hotel was older but clean. If you are expecting the most updated castle experience this is not it. If you are looking for something that is family owned, older but clean, outside of the every day norm you found it! Never heard the noise others mentioned. And as others have noted since the main castle is only used for conferences upon arrival it will look closed. Drive though the gates, park and follow the signs for reception. Breakfast was great. All in all pleasant experience.

They say that with houses and hotels there are three factors to take into account viz location location and location and I think that this is very true. On that basis this is one of the worst hotels that I have stayed in. If you do decide to stay here make sure that you have a car and that you can stairs as there is no lift. This is a shame really as it could be really nice.

We were also told that it was noisy being surrounded by major roads but we never found that to be the case in fact the rooms were very comfortable if somewhat old fashioned.

However for €90 a night I would have expected more.

Recently stayed here for a wedding and cannot compliment the staff enough - they went out of their way to make sure the day went smoothly. The short ceremony was held outside on the lawn under a beautiful old tree, after which we moved to the courtyard by the former stables for champagne and canapés. The meal was held in the old stable building, with a BBQ set up outside. Then we moved across the courtyard to the Rittersaal in the main part of the building, where we had three interconnecting rooms, with plenty of space to sit and chat or dance the night away.
The owner and reception staff were very accommodating in all aspects. The rooms in the hotel are small but nicely furnished (perhaps a little over-furnished), which gives the hotel a more personal feel than your standard chain. The bathrooms could do with a bit of renovation, but everything was clean and there were plenty of towels, complimentary toiletries, etc.
The breakfast buffet was fresh, varied and plentiful - just the ticket to cure our hangovers after the festivities! Although breakfast is only supposed to be available until 10:30, we were still able to go as late as 12:00 and nobody batted an eyelid. Just the kind of flexibility you are looking for at this type of event.

My wife and I stayed at the Kommande Ramersdorf in the summer of 2008, and we had a wonderful experience. After our 15 minute walk from the bus station, we made our way up the wooded path to the castle. There appeared to be no one around when we walked through the driveway arch, and we began hunting for a reception office. We finally found it, and the desk clerk seemed a bit surprised by our arrival. But a quick check of his log showed our names, and he immediately arranged for our luggage to be carried upstairs to our room. In the meantime this clerk, a very nice fellow, showed us into the club room, and served us (coffee for me and beer for my wife), and lit a candle at our table. He stayed and chatted with us, describing various things about the place, until the porter mentioned that our room was ready.

After a quick stop in our room, a nice comfortable room with interesting decor, we headed outside, as we wanted to walk around the castle and look at it. We encountered another gentleman, an administrator of the castle proper. We asked him if we could possibly look inside the castle itself--our actual rooms were a part of the old horse stables, located behind the castle--and he said, "Certainly." When we asked if we could walk anywhere in the castle, he replied, "Of course, but be careful, there are a few conferences going on, and if you enter, they might want you to join the discussion."

We laughed and spent the next 45 minutes or so walking all through this beautiful place. Apparently the castle is now used as a place where business conventions are held, and also a sort of auction warehouse, decorative paintings and furniture filling nearly every room.

The next day, we took the train that travels along the Rhine, about 15 miles down river to the village of Konigswinter, and spent the day looking at the castles there, the Drachenfehls (Dragon Castle), both the newer one, built in the 1800s and the original ruins, from about the time of the Middle Ages. Afterwards we walked down this curving road back toward the village, passing beer gardens, breakfast houses, grape orchards (this is wine country) and residential houses along the way. We ate lunch in Konigswinter, at a nice restaurant alongside the river--we of course sat outside--then caught the next train back to Ramersdorf.

All in all we had a great time. We would not hesitate to stay at the Kommende again.
