    Everything was fine.

    This hotel is in the town centre but has off-street parking although only for about 6 vehicles which could be an issue if the hotel is full --- comfortable room overlooking street --- little concerned that earplugs were provided but were not required! Dinner served outside or in spacious bar. Terrific breakfast.

    Some traffic noise, but as soon as we closed the double-pane windows, the noise went away.

    Fantastic breakfast capped off a very nice, but short, stay. We arrived before 5:00 p.m., before the restaurant opened, but the owner's son checked us in very nicely. He spoke very good English, which was a relief.

    It would be great if the owners provide their frequent guests with any discounts of benefits.

    Great people running this hotel with a perfect - guest friendly attitude. Starting with the location of the hotel, through the diner and summing up with a perfect comfort of a spacious room - it's been a good decission to pick Zur Alten Quelle. Easy solution for beer-lovers - an open corridor fridge with Krombacher to take to your room for the night. Lovely nutritious breakfast in the morning made our day before long trip back home. Staff advised on some good jogging paths around the city and was more than understanding when it comes to runners issues. If I am ever back in Drolshagen - that's the place I am going to stay.

    As a solo 24/7 traveler (work related, region Europe) this is one of the most welcome and cleanest hotels I ever stayed in the very large Cologne region. I just love this place. Supper clean, shutters (no morning light if you wish), soundproof windows, double room doors (soundproof again), perfect nice breakfast, and “hotel guest” aware sincerely loveable owners (The needs for a 365 day hotel traveler are truly different then a vacation guest… and the specifics sums…) Anecdote: My wife was asking me on an evening: “And… what are you going to do now?”… and my answer was without even thinking….”Going home”. This never happened before…

    Fantastic staff (owners) and amazingly warm welcome - this hotel deserves a rating of 10 not a 9. I have travelled extensively for over 20 years this hotel has got to be top of my list for customer service, value for money, comfort and an unbelievably relaxing atmosphere

    Not so much a "didn't like" as a note to future guests. The hotel is just across the town square from the church, which starts ringing its bells from 7.00am, even on a Sunday.

    Our hosts were very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. We returned to the Hotel late on Sunday night and my wife realised that she was now hungry. Even though evening meals had finished for the night our hosts rustled up a delicious chicken salad for her. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and everything you would expect from a typical German Gasthaus

    Just a very beautiful hotel in a small town West of Cologne. We like staying in small towns for many reasons (very nice accommodations for a reasonable price, close to Marketplatz, no problem parking, closeness to good shopping, etc.). This was the best hotel we stayed at in our two week trip in Germany!
