    THE SPA IS CLOSED UNTIL END OF 2018. This was one of the main reasons to choose this hotel, and it was not mentioned either on booking.com or at time of booking by hotel. When we mentioned this at the reception, we received a mere ‘sorry’ and nothing to make up for it (ok i am not a good negotiator)

    Great location on top of a hill, building is impressive, rooms are very spacious, breakfast was very varied and excellent

    Pricey, no notification of the huge construction going on. Great view that was sadly mostly blocked by trees, shrubs and other things. Extra charges for parking unmentioned before booking. Got lost in the hotel numerous times. Hardly any signage. Walked into several places under construction with wiring sticking out everywhere. View out of our room's window was tiny and fully blocked by a tree. What little we could see was a parking spot. Our deluxe double room was anything but deluxe nor double.

    Nice location atop a hill.

    All within expectation. The desk to work on was old...in style of the accommodation so no issue in principle, but was squeaking a bit. Just a minor point.

    A perfect location. Would love to return there in the spring, summer and go for a walk and enjoy the sunset.

    This is a business hotel only - not a spa hotel for relaxation. They have lots of conferences and in my view it is their priority. If you like a quiet and welcoming place with friendly and relaxed staff, the hotel is not for you.

    Excellent location and building but in need of some extra touches
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Standard Double Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The standard room was rather small and with a dated TV. The very expensive dinner was a rather average experience and definitely not a good value for money - staff were clearly inexperienced, some dishes were overly salty (guinea fowl, ice-cream), and the brownie was rather heavy and tough. Also the wellness facilities were hardly impressive (but seem to be undergoing renovation). Some of the watches and jewelry in display cases were rather on the cheap side which did not add to the overall luxurious atmosphere.

    Location, wonderful and unforgettable view of Schloss Drachenburg and the Rhine valley (from the upgraded room), amazing breakfast with a very wide choice and drinks included (also including a honey in honeycomb which looks really cool! I also loved the salmon and croissants), floor heating in the bathroom, friendly staff. Overall the hotel is very impressive, radiating history and with a number of very picturesque locations (e.g. the fireplace room). Already the winding road to the hotel through the woods is very impressive and atmospheric.

    In its glory days I'm sure it was worth $250 euro a night but not now. Very worn and dated. Staff was top notch. Carpets, furniture everything had seen better days. The bed was awful.

    The design has not been updated since God knows when. Room TV was tiny and old (which is just an example of it not being upgraded in ages). The place serves NATO and many formal functions. Captive audience But - if you're traveling for fun and expect that to be an amazing place, you might want to look elsewhere. We didn't have breakfast, but heard a guest complain that for 26 Euros, it was not a good value.

    We arrived and received a room that was huge but look so sad and bland. Ended up upgrading to a nicer one, with a great view of Koln. There's a pool, but it's quite small. Great nature all around.

    • Leisure trip

    Don't go here for a spa or wellness holiday. The website gives a misleading image of the facilities. Sauna is very small (room for max 4 people seated). No cold plunge pool. Very small "swimming pool" (square shaped - four breast-strokes from end to end). The pool was also taken over for one hour by an aqua aerobics group when I was there. Steam bath not functioning. Very unfair to charge for the car park. There is no way to get to the hotel except by car and the hotel grounds are vast - why charge?

    The location is unique with breath-taking views. The restaurant was excellent.

    Although the location is great, we thought it was overpriced. Decoration was outdated. Breakfast was very disappointing (around 55 euros two people) and it was just normal stuff. I find a bit too much that they charge for the parking as this is a big place with plenty of space and nothing around.

    Next year the hotel will get a face-lift because of its dated decor. The lay-out of the lower floors (where the restaurant is) is pretty strange. The price of the breakfast is extraordinary high (26€ pro person). But the choice of food and beverages is very good.
