    No dislikes. All excellent.

    Extremely friendly and helpful owner and staff. Exceptionally high standard of fittings and decoration. Welcoming swimming pool at the end of a day touring the Alsace wine route and the final unexpected delight was the excellent restaurant and food.

    Fabulous little country hotel with its own restaurant. The room was comfortable and very well appointed. The spa and pool onsite were real perks. The restaurant was fantastic. All the staff were helpful and kind, despite our pretty much non-existent French!

    The shower did not live up to its expectations. The bathroom was big, but missing the little extra. The staff is a bit reserved, we where missing more information about the place up on arrival. The extras, for example for the breakfast and the sauna draws the total experience down.

    The style of the room was very nice, the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant is what makes this place worthwhile

    Hotel very difficult to find especially in the dark. Would be helpful to have both telephone numbers for the hotel on the website as sat nav showed one and we had the other, which convinced us it was the wrong place. A long way from the post code listed and had to stop and ask locals the way.

    Hotel very tasteful and comfortable.

    We booked to stay hoping to eat in the hotel restaurant but unfortunately the evening we were there it was closed. We were warned of this after booking but it is a reasonable drive to the nearest town.

    Spacious room with balcony and furniture for sitting out. Lighting subdued so bed side reading lights need to stay in place. Pool available. Excellent high-quality breakfast. Pleasant airy dining room.

    A pity that there is no lounge area, the breakfast room did not seem to be in use in the afternoon when we arrived a bit early. But we certainly come back for our overnight stay.

    Beautifully restaured farmhouse with antique woorden materials and furniture. A cosy and nicely decorated restaurant where we enjoyed a very delicious dinner.

    We knew the restaurant was shut on the evening we stayed so had to go into town for meal which was a shame as we had been driving all day. We weren't offered bar facilities which would have been nice. Also had to pay cash for some reason as I couldn't understand the lady on reception. Guess there was a problem that day with the connection.

    Beautiful house and setting for one night stop over. Breakfast was lovely with fresh fruit including delicious raspberries.

    • Leisure trip

    The location - it is a little too far out of Selestat to easily enjoy the town. It is on a busy road. While the restaurant is extremely good, it is a restaurant you would go to for an occasion, not just everyday eating. The place would benefit from having a bar and bar food (or at least simpler, less expensive food) available. We arrived on a public holiday and there was no food available at all.

    The restaurant was fabulous; it is high quality food and the chef obviously knows what he/she is doing. The breakfasts were good.

    Excellent atmosphere. Lovely ancient building newly restored to a very high standard and very tasteful. Lovely Auberge on the site. Excellent food. Nothing was too much trouble. Attention to detail made all the difference. Left a gold bracelet in the room and they phoned to let us know they would be sending it back.
