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.
"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].

On hillside looking towards castle. Rooms small but very good. Clean rooms. Only downside is nothing is translated into english (menus etc only in german). Lovely walks in hills direct from hotel. Taxi from station only €9. Excellent free buses all over area. Would stay again.

Attractive traditional style hotel from the outside. Very comfortably appointed rooms. Very nicely decorated modern bathrooms. Ample parking spaces. Spacious balconies available. Some rooms have a view of the castle.
The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have experienced, with a huge variety of fresh produce to choose from.
The only drawbacks were, quite a treck into the centre of town (15-minute walk), no restaurant in the hotel, and slightly noisy traffic from the main street.
But overall, a very nice hotel, giving us a very pleasant stay, and I would definitely recommend it.

This was a really friendly family-run hotel well-situated for the castle and town centre in Wernigerode and close to plenty of good bars and restaurants.
The hotel contacted me in advance to ask if I wanted to pre-book parking (€4.50) and breakfast (€8) as the Expedia rate was room-only. I would definitely advise pre-booking parking if you are arriving with a car as the guest car park is small. The breakfast was good and a typical German continental breakfast - plenty of fresh rolls with cold meats and cheeses etc.
The hotel has free wi-fi which worked well.
Note the rooms are not air-conditioned and the front of the hotel is next to a road junction so bring ear plugs if you're travelling in the summer and need the windows open.
