The hotel was in a good location and rooms, central areas and pool were all of a high standard and spotlessly clean!
Wernigerode is a truely beautiful place and I hope to return at some stage and if so, I would seriously consider returning to this hotel.
Watch out for the hotel parking charges which were not told about in advance and be sure to take your German phrase book as not much English is spoken throughout the town.
A very busy hotel with many bus tour group guests but the quality of the service and the quality, quantity and availability of the buffet style breakfast and dinner were all excellent. Guests staying for several nights had their own reserved tables for dinner and the service by the Head Waitresses (sometimes a blonde haired lady and sometimes a reddish haired lady) regarding ordering of drinks was exceptional.
"Great location, a good place to get away from it a"
Perched above Braunlage, this hotel manages to feel removed from any rush and bustle yet remains convenient as a centre for touring the Harz area. This was our second stay, just a weekend overnight, whereas last time we spent a week here. On both occasions, the hotel has lived up to our expectations.
The rooms are comfortable and quiet, the staff helpful and the catering is delicious (special mention for the buffet breakfast, possibly the largest spread I've ever encountered!). every day, a newsletter is provided giving some information about a nearby town, a weather forecast for the day, details of activities and special offers arranged by the hotel. The hotel itself includes a spa facility with an excellent (25m?) pool, sauna and fitness room, massage and beauty treatments are on hand, there's an archery range& pitch & putt golf course, pretty much enough for a long weekend without ever leaving the premises.
One of my personal favourites.
"Beautiful little German town in the Harz mountains"
Superb location in the town square; so typically German with good food. Parking available at modest cost. Plenty to do and see in the area. Narrow gauge railway with extensive route network throughout the Harz region, and if you want to see further afield there is a multitude of similar towns for touring, and even an aviation museum in addition to the almost mandatory "Schloss" [tourist road-train available].
