We enjoyed a happy few days in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Our room was large and comfortable situated in the Studio block, top floor. A lift would have been useful for the luggage. . As it was half term the dining room was lively with sporty families and many todlers.The dining room staff were efficient, friendly and spoke English, the food was splendid.
Walking round the Maars kicking the fallen leaves in the Autumn sunshine was splendid. The swimming pool and the spa proved very popular, plenty of towels, available, robes and flip flops provided in the bedroom.
We were surprised to hear that not many English visit the hotel, perhaps this review will encourage more folk to explore the area.
"Quality hotel with interesting features and local charm"
I liked this hotel. It's old school in many ways, but this mostly comes across as traditional homely German charm.
The restaurant and bar are spacious, my room and en-suite was perfectly comfortable, access to a buffet-style 'continental' breakfast was included (far from a given in mid-range German hotels, I've found) and there's parking at the rear of the hotel. Staff were friendly and there are even two skittles alleys for hire in a separate area next to the bar, which kids would enjoy.
Internet access at a fixed rate of 6 euros for unlimited use over my two night stay was a good service and reasonable price - again, far from a given in many places.
The town itself isn't very interesting but it has a number of restaurants and the position allows easy daytrips to explore places of interest like Trier, Koblenz, the Mosel Valley wine region and the Eifels forests / nature parks.
If in the area I would stay here again with pleasure.

This is a really excellent, classy hotel that offers really good value for money. Great position over looking the town, historic aristocratic feel and yet well kept, comfortable and welcoming. Excellent level service from hotel staff with very good English. Really outstanding food from a young chef who really knows what he's doing and served in a way that makes it a fine dining experience (don't go to the restaurant expecting fish and chips tho - you'll be disappointed).
I travel a lot and stay in many hotels around the world, but this trip was for me, because it was convenient for the Nurburgring, so this time it was my money and I was more than happy with what I paid for my stay. It was only one night, but I WILL be returning to this hotel, it's a keeper.
I rarely fill these things in, but Schloßotel Kurfürstliches Amtshaus gets my vote, gets my recommendation and actually gets a review out of me!
