    The perfect place to stay and visit the Schwetzingen schloss gardens. Also very close to the town centre restaurants and outdoor cafes - we had a splendid Italian meal at La Dolce Vita. Good parking area in the rear garden of Villa Benz.

    I didn't feel it was obvious on the booking form that reception closed at 6pm.

    Very good location for Schwetzingen gardens and we were given free tickets at the hotel to visit. Lovely small hotel, very comfortable and excellent breakfast. We were late getting there but this was quickly sorted out when I phoned.

From the kettle to make coffee/tea in your room, the mini-bar, the umbrella in the closet, and apples in the morning, everything made you feel welcome and comfortable! Excellent location and yummy breakfast. A 3-star hotel with 4-star value!

    We were given free passes to the lovely huge gardens of the Schloss to use on the gate right across the street from the hotel. Then we walked through the garden 10 minutes to a street with superb restaurants. Highly recommend the Hausbrauerei - first one you get to. Great breakfast and nice staff at hotel. GET ROOM ON HOTEL BACKSIDE to be farther from busy street on front.

    Small room and miniscule bathroom

    I was impressed that Frau Benz came out to welcome us and settle us in to our room in a friendly and courteous manner. Later she kindly moved her car so that we could park ours, free of charge, in the little parking area behind the hotel. We were in a room facing the busy street but this didn’t really worry us that much. The provision of ear plugs on the pillows was a thoughtful, if rather ominous gesture. We were really wondering how noisy it was going to get during our brief, one night stay. But in the end, on this point we had no problems. The room was small but had everything one should expect nowadays. The double bed was comfortable, the wooden furniture was well maintained and clean. The tiny bathroom was fully functional with enough towels and a small walk in shower cubicle. The only problem was that, given the heat on the day we visited and there being no real ventilation, excursions to this little room were as brief as necessity would allow… WiFi was free of charge and worked perfectly. The mini bar was (including numerous alcoholic drinks) – a godsend on this, one of the hottest days of the year so far. This is something that the larger hotel chains could copy. We also appreciated the ventilator fan which we kept going all night. We took our breakfast the next morning out on the little terrace behind the house. The gentleman who served us was friendly and made us feel at home. The breakfast buffet itself was a small but had a surprisingly rich collection of good, healthy food. We had more than enough to keep us going on the next leg of our journey. As to the location, we were able to find the Villa Benz quite easily. It is situated next to the Schloss gardens - there is a lovely walk close by for the dog so long as you keep it on the lead. We walked into town for our evening dinner - it's a comfortable 15 minutes away, just enough to work up an appetite going in and to walk off some of the excesses afterwards.
