It is located in a beautiful area, with good facilities, nice alpine architecture, relaxing views and very helpful staff. Big rooms with a 70’s style furniture and very good beds. The tv set was very small and there were no English channels. The shower was the best I had in any of the hotels I have been to – simple and with good pressure. The breakfast (included) was divine. Good area for walking – we hope to be able to come back again. The restaurants were too expensive – maybe because the hotel is not located in a walking distance to Winterberg. £30 for a carafe of house wine?!!!
It was a great hotel. The food was good. The rooms were clean. The view of our room was poor. The site said it was breathtaking. We saw the back of another room.It wasn't in the center of Winterland.
The deal that was offered (price versus facilities). Good services towards kids. First we were directed to the wrong room. We had dinner in the restaurant and it took very long for our food to arrive. As we are with little kids, this was a challenge. The collection of kitchenware in the appartment was not complete. There is no information given about what is present in the appartment.
Nice hotel. Beautiful surroundings. Food in the restaurant is horrible. More like a deep frie snack bar! Breakfast is ok though. Not nearly enough light in the hallways. Light switches are difficult to find (situated just above the door bells of rooms!). Fell from the stairs because of a lack of light and hurt myself terribly!
Use of all facilities included in price and pass key to enable access at any time. Friendliness and welcome of staff. Large room with kitchenette facilities was excellent. Ideal position. Good amenities close by. Thoughtful letter after our stay thanking us for returning questionnaire. No, everything was just right.
The room was spacious and comfortable. It was quiet, so sleep was good. Good breakfast/coffee!
arbeiter freundlich, sauna und schwimbad your web site said a family room was avaliable for us. For €111 We expected a luxus family room. When we got there we were told all the family rooms were gone and they had upraded us. We dont class one of the chalets as luxus, these are ideal for skiing holidays or break with friends but are not suitable for a 1 night luxus stay
It was raining the whole weekend when we were there, but we had a great relaxing weekend staying in the Dorint hotel. The apartment room was big and confortable for a family (with one small child). All the food at the bar restaurant was too salty. Besides that, the quality of the food was good.
A wide selection of spacious, comfortable, clean and excellent value for money accommodation - coupled with first class service gave us the independence and feel of our own second home. Receiving complimentary bus and train tickets is a nice little touch only Dorint provides. This is definetely our favourite hotel chain, thank you for a wonderful holiday. We liked everything. One minor thing that could be improved is the dim lighting in lounge and bathroom.
Fantastic design and nice spa. The breakfast is perfect. The garden is not ready yet, but almost finished and very beautifull. Too bad they didn't open the terras.
The staff was very friendly. Our holiday started with a free upgrade to a even better room, so what can you wish for more :) The hotel isn't finished yet, on the outside. But I have to say: inside you can't notice this at all, they did a very good job!
Avital is a nice looking hotel, just re-opened. nice breakfast and spa. I hope they keep it this tidy is it is now.
Very peaceful environment. I even booked a second night's stay whilst there in order to enjoy the environment some more! I believe that I was misled by the staff about the classification of my room. I booked a Junior Suite but believe I was placed in a double room, having seen, firstly, photographs of a junior suite and then, secondly, a junior suite itself whilst being cleaned as I was leaving. The staff assured me that I had a suite when I questioned them immediately after arrival and, as they were so friendly in every respect, I did not make any further comment on the matter.
The staff were very friendly and the food proved for half board was of good quality. If you do not speak German or Dutch, this may not be the place for you. We only speak English and had difficulty communicating with the manager.
Wonderful hotel, very friendly staff, the pool was very nice and the spa facilities were also very good. The breakfast was nice and very complete. The room was spacious. We would like to go back again some other time. There was no snack (not even a bag of crisps) available during the afternoon, this was a very small disadvantage.
ideal location There was no bar to get a drink at in the evening which meant going out at night if you wanted a quick drink.And the room we had looked out onto a brick wall.
feather pillows and deckbed/ no thinner blanket to use instead of the dekbed.
The location of the Hotel is in the very centre of Winterberg. Staff does not speak English. Not really a friendly staff in general.
no english... gym, sauna and solarium
Staff were very helpful.
Location is very central Staff does not speak English at all
Everything was ok. We liked the new swimmingpool in particular no
All in one: room, breakfast, lunch & evening restaurant, very nice personnel Heating could not be switched on/off, at night too hot!
central location, food The hotel was old and musty. The furniture is late 60's and well worn.
Breakfast, staff, large room, comfortable bed, pub in the hotel, location. Dinner at the hotel was not good and the price more expensive in comparison to other restaurants nearby.
Good location and everything was as expected. The family enjoyed the stay. Staff were friendly apart from one grumpy chap who was unable to smile The rooms were way too warm and there was no way to control the temperature. An English menu would have been nice
The owners and staff were very friendly. They didnt clean the rooms well enough
all the staff were very helpful and polite, especially knowledge on the local amenities which was very helpfull their card reader was broken so had to pay cash - lucky there was a cash point locally!
great staff, clean large room and excellent breakfast buffet walking 50m through the pouring rain from guesthouse to hotel for breakfast
It is a nice, comfortable and clean hotel in a quiet location. Food and services are very good; the owners really friendly.
We had a very good experience at Hotel Forsthaus- the rooms are a good size, very clean and comfortable. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The hotel is very close to the supermarket, local shops and restaurants. I would definitley stay there again and would recommend this hotel to friends. The card reader was broken- this did not effect us as we had planned to pay cash. However, I am sure many other guests would have expected to pay by card. The local supermarkt- 2mins down the road has a cash machine for anyone requiring cash. Also other guests have noted a lack of tea/coffee facilities in the rooms- this is true, but did not bother us.
friendly people and very good breakfast and diner
We particularly liked the staff and the breakfasts and dinners, and appreciated the quiet and convenient location. The fact that there are no baths but only showers
The delux room was clean and modern with a nice balcony. We stayed on a Sunday and were a little disappointed that the evening meal times were so restrictive - 18:30 until 19:30 only.
We where upgraded, that was great service The kitchen was closed
The Superior Room was clean and nicely furnished, good dinner
Price, Personal, Breakfast, Free Parking, Relaxed atmosphere Small Room, Bad matrass en bad pillows, small room and hairs in the shower from a previous guest
Cleanliness of hotel was exceptional. We reported a light not working in the bathroom of room 14 on the first night of a 3-night stay and this was never fixed.
the fantastic organic food in the hotel restaurant.
breakfast was very good, swimmingpool + solarium also good, nice hotel! the room is very nice, the hotel is in the centre of Winterberg, close to everything! -
yes We've got a smoking room while we asked for a non-smoking, it smelled bad!
Good spacious room, great breakfast and pool facilities.
Very nice hotel, directly in the city center of Winterberg. We stayed here for one night during a trekking tour,
Friendly, helpful staff and one member spoke very good English. It is well situated for walks and town.
Nice hotel with excellent staff and flexibel regarding check-in time. We received a large room and no issues with cancellation of 1 person. Good breakfast. Private parking. Somewhat outdated furniture in the room
Comfortable beds, good food, great value For the price, no
very accommodating for our sports equipment, good breakfast, and close to the Winterberg Bike Park (the reason for our visit to Germany), and also very close to the Town for restaurants for evening meals and shopping, highly recommended, we will use the same hotel again next year
Comfortable and helpfull, flexible staff
Good service, simple room, but clean. The food was excellent.
good location, friendly stuff, large rooms
The room was good, the breakfast excellent and the location is very close to the ski lifts
The hotel was very cozy and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The hotel restaurant was also good value for money. The staff do not speak English... but we managed!
Hotel Schneider is an excellent hotel for a ski break in Winterberg. Good rooms, good service (english speaking), a nice breakfast and great food and drinks in the restaurant make it a good choice.
Very very good value for money, the room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was basic but well presented and adequate. The free afternoon coffee and cake was a nice touch. A great location for hiking in the region.
Perfect hotel away from the civilization. The family running this hotel is very friendly and interesting. Recommended to stay. BBQ at 6pm is very delicious and plenty, beer is cheap. The surprise will wait you after the BBQ ;)
kind staff can speak english well. clean room is comfortable. location is near the ski resort only 300m. lift and ski rental discount for all hotel guests. if a boiler is possible for making tea in room.
Good welcome, pleasant room, v clean, good breakfasts. None really - although we would have liked more than 6 hours wi-fi for our 3 night stay.
Location. This hotel is very close to the ski resort and 5 min walk to the centre of the town.
Verry frendly service.
Very friendly & welcoming staff, the hotel was not expensive to eat in and the meals where excellent. The children even enjoyed the set meal! The whole stay was very relxaing with a homely feel, great place! we will be happy to go back anytime.
Great price, wonderful spa/pool facilities, friendly staff, delicious restaurant, clean rooms, beautiful area. It was a bit further from skiing in Winterberg than I expected.
comfortable and cosy, friendly, pool sauna- great for ski season or summer hiking- lovely nearby walks etc nice alternative but easily accessible to nearby Winterberg
Very nice swimming pool Smoking in the bar area
Friendly atmosphere, good service, nice personnel "on the bakground" very helpfull and never disturbing, good facilities, clean and a good restaurant! Only little inconvenience: there was no elevator. But that is realy NO problem!
At first there was a problem with the booking, which I belief the owners solved optimally! I really appreciate their willingness to solve the problem, and came up with solutions. The service of this family-runned business is just great! You feel the warmth and welcome, I really can recommend this place to anyone.
It was very clean, very good staff, beautiful location, excellent food, can't fail it on anything
The friendly staff, the room was nice and roomy
Friendliness of staff/family who ran hotel. Scenery was beautiful. Food was very good and the hotel was very attractive. N/A
I loved the Location,view,Interior design and the staff! ALot of great outdoor activities near by. Swimming pool & Sona -Great. I missed my first night and the management worked tgreat with me & could have charged me but did not. Wanderful people! I recommend this especialy for coupleswhom want a get away. Graet Mountain Biking, cross country sking and hiking and nature things to see & do. Signs for finding the Hotel but It says it in the Name! Meybe some people dont want to be found so easly,ha,ha.Alow time to find it especialy in the day time and you should be fine.
Hard beds, dripping toilet all night, extremely slippery parking lot, smallest TV I have ever seen with a remote control that didn't work, no information book about hotel in room and no more were available when we were finally able to communicate to them that none was available.
It has a very cosy & personal feel. Like staying in someones home rather then a hotel. Although in a stunning location, the hotel was just a little isolated without much around.
Quiet location, friendly staff, nice pool and sauna, good menu
Nice staff. We where aloud to store our luggage in the hotel for the day, while we went snowboarding, until we took the train home. Good breakfast. It was a long walk (uphill) to the skilift / the slopes. There was no shower-gel or something available, which we kind of expected for 90 euro per night.
The surrounding area and it's close proximity to the Rothaarsteig Trail. Too clean, almost sterile. Overorganized by signing a long lists of inventory of our apartment, for the meter reading (extra costs) and a system of garbage disposal in about 7 different cans. You sign also that if you don't dispose correctly you get fined by the hotel. Very unsympathetic welcome this way. Apart from that the pictures are deceiving, it lays on a very busy road and no panoramic views from anywhere around the hotel.
In the appartment, we had everything we needed The double-bed with 2 separate covers
we were staying at their appartment and it almost just feels like staying in a hotel. They have provided almost everything. Unfortunately there was no dishwasher.
Friendly and helpfull staff. Better descriptions on how to sort the garbage in other languages than german.
Excellent location, fine restaurant. "Comfortable bed" turned out to be a horrible bedcouch, some blinds could not be closed, bathroom wasn't clean, unannounced extra taxes/charges had to be paid.
The owners are very nice!
Close to nice cross country (langlaufen) paths. Owners very nice. As usual, better bring your own pillows.
Really freindly employees/owners, dinner on evening of arrival was very nice and the children were very well looked after. You really have to do something about the pillows, they are really too soft, had neck pain for days as did other members of our family, I notice this has been pointed out in many previous reviews. You should really do something about this, (did not complain at the time as everything else was great and did not want to spoil this atmosphere.)
