This traditional, family-run hotel in Winterberg is set in a former forester's lodge, and offers rooms with free Wi-Fi internet and satellite TV. Guests can use the Finnish sauna and infra-red cabin for free. The bright rooms of the Hotel Forsthaus are individually decorated, and are located either in the main building or in the nearby guest house, 50 metres away. Some rooms feature a balcony or terrace. A fresh, varied breakfast buffet is available each morning, while regional dishes are served in the Forsthaus' restaurant with terrace. During the summer, snacks and refreshments can be enjoyed in the garden café. The surrounding countryside is ideal for outdoor activities, and the hotel provides direct access to the Rothaarsteig and Ruhrtal hiking and cycling trails. A ski lift is just 1 km from the hotel and Winterberg town centre is a 10-minute walk away. Guests can park on-site free of charge.
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
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.
It is a nice, comfortable and clean hotel in a quiet location. Food and services are very good; the owners really friendly.
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!
