brilliant range of food at breakfast, the way the tablecloths were changed after each table had been used, the pleasant decor in the public areas We did not learn any German at school and would have found it helpful if the dinner menus had been translated into English
The location, right in the centre, within walking distance of everything Trying to find the hotel by car is tricky. City directions were not very good and sat navs useless
Excellent hotel: Reinheid alom, mooie ruime kamer, voortreffelijke keuken met zeer gevariëerd ontbijt en caloriebeperkt heerlijk diner (weinig vet en koolhydraten). Ambiance en inrichting smaakvol. De gasten staan centraal bij het prima samenwerkende personeel. Persoonlijk hadden we geen interesse in de uitgebreide wellness-mogelijkheden. Wel misten we een zwembad.
Being in the centre of this wonderful ancient town, and being made to feel very comfortable. It was extremely clean and the rooms were large and beautifully decorated. A luxurious hotel. There was an unpleasant smell of drains in the reception area of the hotel, which is probably explained because of old sewerage systems, but wasnt noticeable anywhere else in the hotel.
Very good hotel in the middle of the city Wernigerode. Excellent breakfast and a la carte dinner Very difficult to find in the dark. The signs to the hotel should be illuminated.
The hotel was wonderful and location was great. 'The breakfast was great...the only bad part was the dinner... restaurant food was overpriced for dinner and service was poor. They did not even ask if I wanted dessert or coffee and we could not get them to even come to the table to ask, we had to chase them down.
The Hotel is very good and exelent Access difficult- not sufficient direction signs
The breakfast is fantastic. Lounge is good and there is welcome drink. The room is very nice and the bed is comfortable. The spa is great. It is next to shopping street. Staffs are very responsive and helpful. Some staffs does speak good english. This is the best stay of the whole trip. There is only one terminal at the lobby to access internet for free. The parking is very expensive.
All staff were very helpful and friendly No, it was superb
Comfort and cleanliness, food of excellent quality,position in town very difficult to access-needs clearer maps for motorists.Car parking 10Euro/day-12 if the system is not explained.Pool would be nice.
helpfullness of staff.
If you like steam railways and you're coming to the Harz Mountains, then this is the only hotel to stay in. Everything about the hotel is very good. The room (overlooking the loco shed) had a great view, the accomodation was comfy and the bathroom excellent. The hotel's location for the town is also very convenient and the hotel easily accessed by car. The buffet breakfast was exactly as we like them to be and the evening meal menu was excellent in terms of scope, value for money and quality. If you're travelling to this part of Germany for the first time don't expect everyone to be able to speak English - learn the basics and have a good phrase book! None the less the staff were warm, welcoming and friendly. This is not really a "not like", but... we were there in a heat wave (which was great) however the room was sweltering (as you'd expect). There's no air conditioning (which isn't the end of the world) but as we had to have the windows wide open we were disturbed by the road traffic right outside - where does everyone go at 5.30 in the morning, and why so many of them?!?! So, if you're booking for a summer visit then maybe a room at the back would be cooler and quieter - you can still watch the engines from the various balconies and terraces, and with a beer in hand (which is another plus for this hotel)
Loved the proximity to the railway & the way that the steam engines were just across the road and steaming all night. Restaurant had a railway theme too. Staff very helpful & friendly.
close to station and town centre. also superb for those who wanted to observe the HSB steam locos. highly amusing drinks delivery system. in view of the number of english visitors, and other countries, the lack of anything other than German spoken, with basic info was not good.
Hotel recently refurbished, clean and comfortable. Convenient for station and narrow gauge railway and only a few minutes walk from town. Ideal for railway enthusiasts as dining room overlooks steam loco depot of the Harz narrow gauge system. Excellent breakfast buffet, good evening meal. Nothing I disliked-however there are insufficient staff to deal comfortably with large numbers dining at same time. For the same reason an early morning call was overlooked-fortunely without on this occasion causing difficulty.
Friendly atmosphere, contented staff, pleasantly situated in a very lovely town. Would strongly recommend it. Smoke alarm activated on night of 20th so called fire brigade. False alarm and key holder was quickly on the scene. Unfortunate but no harm done.
Clean, quiet, comfortable, near local transportation and the steam train depot. Easy walk to center of town. Good breakfast No, everything was excellent
We were there for the steam trains and we loved being next to the train yard. Others may not find the street and train smoke as appealing.
Outstanding location adjacent to the railway station, provided the room we asked for, great breakfast, good dinner with happy service.
Breakfast was excellent as was the food generally. Location was probably as good as it gets for steam locomotive enthusiasts. The room was rather small. Toiletries were not replenished.
Cheerful friendly and attentive staff. Good food both at breakfast and in the evening. Room was clean and spacious but some might consider it a little basic. Bathroom facilities excellent. Good firm beds.
Excellent facilities. Helpful staff. Free pass for local transport. Good restaurant. A bit of a hike from town centre. Last bus at about 6.30.
Great location at edge of Altstad and across road from Hartzer Tourist Railway. Accommodation very comfortable. Restuarant excellent. Staff spoke English and were all extremely friendy and helpful. Parking onsite. Great experience.
Outstanding location just near the "Skisprungschanzen" of Wernigerode. We had a very nice and spaceous apartment with balcony and perfect view on mountain, Schanzen and all other nature. The price we paid for this experience is unbeatable. 10 to 15 minute walk to outstanding downtown Wernigerode, were parking is not easy to find. nothing at all.
Breakfast buffet was very good Difficult to find
Nice view of the castle from the top rooms. Good, firm bed. Decent restaurant with helpful staff. No internet in the room! Also full a few minor inconveniences such as a light switch for the bathroom outside the room and behind the door. Furniture was quite ugly, but comfortable. You need a car to access this hotel, which would be the only major drawback vs a hotel in the middle of town.
The staff were exceptionally helpful, staying late when we got lost and arrived after reception was officially closed. They even sent someone to help us find our way to the hotel after we arrived in the town. This was just one example of the excellent service provided by the very friendly staff. All of their help was greatly appreciated.
Friendly staff at reception. Good breakfast buffet included in price. Excellent view of Schloss Wernigerode. Requires aircons in room, terribly hot in summer.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and offered excellent service. It was extremely valuable for the money we paid (64 EUR for a double room). The minibar was free (!), the parking was free and breakfast was included in the room price. The kitchen offered great local specialities which I appreciate very much. When checking in we received a map of the city of Wernigerode, lots of discount coupons to use in restaurant and stores, as well as a free rides on not only all public transports within the city of wernigerode but also for buses to other areas in the harz mountains. You can easily walk to town from the hotel, but we took the car, since parking in town was easily and didn't cost anything after 6 in the evenin The beds were a little hard but thet is a matter of personal taste of course.
The hotel is good for a short stay in Wernoigerode for the Harz mountains and the steam railway. It is centrally located and close to all the rstaurants etc in the town centre. Although my room was non smoking I could detect the smell of stale tobacco smoke in the room on my arrival
Breakfast is so great!!! Wir can buy something at the Supermarket Lidl.(close to the Hotel) no kettle in the room.
I found the hotel efficiently run, and the staff very courteous and helpful. Also some nice touches - like a bowl of fresh fruit in one's room every day. The hotel is also pretty convenient both for the station and the market square. The breakfasts were excellent.
Nice location near the centre of the town. Very good breakfast. Wireless internet did not work in our room.
It was brilliantly positioned for my travel on the Harz railway to Brocken
Very friendly and helpful staff,i liked the fruit in the room,a superb breakfast.Very clean and comfortable.
Bedroom and the breakfast room were beautifully decorated. All staff, front desk, cleaning and breakfast, were friendly and helpful and recognized us each time with a smile and greeting. Hotel was well situated near railway (especially the steam train to the Brocken). We very much enjoyed staying there. Because of the very hot weather during our stay, we had to have the windows open during the night and at times the traffic was noisy until late evening. This is a problem with many hotels which are chosen because they are conveniently situated to the railway and the town centre. This would NOT stop us staying there again.
Centrally located and reasonably priced.
Convenience to town center and train station. Excellent selection for breakfast and very convenient to restaurants.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Fresh fruit in the room is a nice touch.
Welcome and swimming facilities Gourmet restaurant was closed but we were not informed, food in alternative venue was gourmet style and prices but not what we would have chosen for ourselves
very nice staff, clean the wifi did not work for me
Very good hotel. Very clean. Friendly staff. Good kitchen. Quiet and relaxing. None really, except two disasters in the kitchen. Their bouillabaisse was much to salty, the fish hard and the portion too small. The other evening the Pomme Anna was much too hard (reheated ?). Otherwise the resturant was excellent with good value for the money - we liked it so much that we ate there three nights. The sauna was closed one night due to rebuilding. Too bad that it had to be the evening where we had our 25 years wedding night.
Good service, rooms OK, good restaurant, breakfast starts at 7 but they make a nice lunchbox in case you need to leave earlier. Television is out of date
Scenery inside and outside, peacefulness, atmosphere, closeness to nature and town at the same time
Room excellent Shower rather cramped
Lovely atmosphere - very clean and an excellent Breakfast ! No Mini-Bar
Friendly unique hotel, family run, away from the main town. 19 mins walk up a small hill. Food excellent value. Message good. Limited number of staff needed to do most jobs. A little more expensive than others in the Harz Mts but still good value and a unique, historial place.
The location was exelent. The breakfast was first class. The price was reasonable.
Very good location,good breakfast,a wide room,and a smoking area in the hotel. Nothing.
Shopping and Sight seeing
Hotel staff were very kind. And the location is very nice.
We were very enjoyed. Thanks a lot.
Staff was very friendly. Shower was hard to adjust temperature.Needed more towels.Noisy at night.Business across street was breaking up furniture well into the night.
Friendly staff,good breakfast, clean tidy Hotel,lovely location on market square, quite rooms.
It was cold and quiet- "off season" in the small town before the X'mas markt begins, but it turned out that my family had really a very nice and quiet time in the hotel. Breakfast, dinner at the restaurant were both great.The staff, the large family room, the location...everything was nice. The parking wasn't difficult at all even the hotel locates at the center of the town.
Outstanding four star hotel offering value for money. Very friendly, personal service in a spotlessly clean hotel.Excellent rooms with their own character. Excellent breakfast offering wide choice of hot and cold food. Perfect location in the market square. I give this hotel 10 out of 10! No
Centrally located. Rooms spacious and quiet. Excellent breakfast.
Spacious apartment with room to relax and separate bedroom. Useful small kitchen and dining table in room. Good breakfasts provided. Situation very convenient for the town and for the Harz Railway. Nothing of note
Very spacious rooms/suites, very clean and quite comfotable; very close to the old city. Fantastic little town and lovely surrounds. No option not to take breakfast; hotel staff had limited other languages and were 'functional' rather than welcoming.
Excellent breakfast, spacious room, city center
We were very impressed by our room - more of an apartment than a hotel - and it made our stay excellent from the very beginning. The manager and front desk staff were also very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was impressive and delicious, and the Kartoffelhaus was cozy, reasonably priced, and extremely good.
The friendly staff,the excellent breakfast spread,my television broke down but on my return later,it had been fixed,very impressed.
This was my second stay at the Hotel. An apartment including separate kitchen/sittingarea and bathroom is excellent value for money. At the Weise Hirsch about 100 yds away you would pay twice the rate for a smaller room. The staff are all very frindly and efficient and the Potato (Kartoffel) House restaurant portions are fantstic. In he summer some rooms can get hot as there is no aircon.
The family room was so big, comfortable and clean. The atmosphere of breakfast is very nice. The staff were all kind. Located in the center of the town, good for sightseeing. ファミリールームは大変広く，清潔で，居心地がよかった。朝食の雰囲気も良く，スタッフも皆親切だった。街の中心なので観光もしやすかった。
Quiet location Breakfast indoors with closed windows, muggy, no A/C, 86 degrees. adjacent patio was not open for breakfast, unbelievable.
Very spacious rooms, good breakfasts, nice location, no hassles.
Staff were very helpful. Room was nice size, quiet and clean. Main issue with the hotel is the room price and the fact that the hotel does not meet normal four star standards. For example for our three night stay the bar and restaurant were not open and it was a long walk in heavy snow to the town centre. An additional 10 euros for breakfast is too much when paying such a high room price. There are far better value (comfort and price) hotels in Wernigerode.
Clean, comfortable and well-kept. Looks like this hotel has been refurbished quite recently.
The staff and the rooms where exellent
The staff were very helpful There was no terrace or garden in which to sit and relax
Friendly atmosphere from a very happy and attentive staff.
Friendly staff, gorgeous room and bathroom, delicious breakfast buffet. Good location - only 5-10 mins walk to the Old Town. It was a shame that it did not have a restaurant, as it is always nice to have the option of eating at your own hotel. There are loads of good restaurants in walking distance though and the reception provided us with a map of the town so we could find our way around.
the building and silance, sauna
Charming half-timbered old building that has been nicely renovated. Very clean. Friendly staff. Breakfast was not included with the room.
The staff were very professional/very courteous/very friendly/breakfast service was excellent.the staff were a credit to their profession.
Good location, high quality, good service and excellent breakfast.
Breakfast was nice. Large selection including warm food. A bit too expensive though at 13 euros per person. The spa area was crap. The saunas were not turned on. They gave us a room on the street side and the noise was so loud we could not sleep.
location, early breakfast, good restaurant and high quality of meal
The hotel was centrally located and most suitable. The staff were most helpful and good humoured and nothing was too much trouble. Restaurant had very interesting food. The rooms were clean and spacious and the bathroom was good. The pillows were troublesome. They were large but the sort that were only suitable for those who lie on their back or stomach. Simply they were too thin even when folded double.There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room however, I was able to persuade a restaurant member to provide a flask of hot water, a couple of tea bags and a drop of milk. This was provided on a tray which we carried up to the room.
Clean, good breakfast, English speaking staff Additional tourist tax charged on the room was not made clear on website. Charging for bottled water in room was a bit greedy.
Great access to center of town. Very comfortable hotel with an excellent breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful.
rode the railway none
Booked room with balcony, none available. Wireless internet indicated as available in rooms - does not reach rooms on 2nd and 3rd floors.
good view through the window, nice sauna and swimming pool nobody spoke english
Convenience,cleanliness,excellent breakfast and attentive but not overbearing staff.
We were made to feel very welcome and it was very relaxing. The pool area is very calming and tranquil but we were there at a quiet time and had it to ourselves! Would definately go back.
Nice castle view from twin room; good breakfast, nice spa
The peace and quiet in a good location with a splendid view of the castle. No
Wow, that pool and the heated seats were great! The walking trail outside was nice and the hotel is much prettier in person than online. No English but who cares! They were very accomodating.
Very enjoyable stay at the hotel. It's only 5 mins walk from the centre. Some rooms have balconies with a great view of the castle. The staff were most pleasant. Breakfast was excellent with a large variety. The pool is a real added bonus. Highly recommended.
The rooms are well appointed and the hotel is in a nice location. The breakfast buffet is also very good.
Excellent size room in good decorative order. The only small disappointment was that we were ecpecting a 'view of the forrest' which was very hard to see through the windows.
the serenity of the site the near absece of communication as a result of the language barrier The staff on hand was unable to express himself in english The menu was also entirely in german
Place, free parking, breakfast Reservation" Schlossberg hotel" room in pension with wiew on hotel!! Only breakfast in hotel. Tv 12'' ? no shampoo, bathsoap in beathroom.
excellent breakfast, one excellent staff member ( female ), owner cares nothing about customer service or speaking to guest and male staff member rude and knows nothing about customer service, assistance with luggage, etc. I found booking.com and hotel website and brochure misleading and borders on false advertising. See above. I booked this based on experience with booking.com. Was so upset with service of employee and our location, that I cancelled last night with three days notice, still charged a unreasonable amount. Stayed three nights there, never again. Not pleased with response of booking.com representative on phone while at hotel. Will reconsider my use of booking.com in the future.
This is a wonderful hotel on the outskirts of Wernigerode. Our room was quite small but comfortable and had a wonderful view over the town. Food both in the restaurant and at breakfast was excellent. The bed! I know it is Germany where this is the norm but it was two small mattresses in a box. Are the Germans not fond of their partners as it is very dangerous to creep towards them and fall through....
This was our second stay here. The room was lovely with a great view of city & hills. (We had a panorama view room in the large hotel; we were not in the Truss House.) Breakfast was delicious with many options, including eating in the garden or dining room. Dinner at their restaurant across the street also was delicious. Very kind & helpful staff. They do not have internet access but we didn't mind going to an internet cafe. We mention this here because internet access may be important to some travelers.
Good old fashioned class and taste. Would be very hard to beat at twice the price if all the rooms are as good as ours was. Excellent staff. NO!
Breakfast was excellent Staff were extremely helpful No internet access Television channels limited Bed linen not really top quality
Very friendly and attentive staff, location (near the towncentre and castle), breakfast is excellent!
I liked the friendliness. They covered everything from helping to park a big car in a small space to ensuring that we had water in the room for the night. I left my handbag over the back of the chair at breakfast and it was brought to my room before I had finished cleaning my teeth. The staff were smiling and pleasant at all times. And there were little dishes of biscuits on the various tables The pole in the room was a little tricky. It meant that the light had to be turned on for night visits to the bathroom. But all in all charming.
Location, comfort, breakfast N/A
The Hotel was excellent value you money, spacious family rooms complemented by friendly staff. Ideal family based hotel for older children aged 7 -14. Situated within ideal proximity of Bad Harzburg and Thale.
The Hotel was ideally situated in the centre of the town with car parking facilities. It was very convenienent for the restaurants, shops and tourist attractions. No. The Hotel was very clean and we had good size rooms
The hotel was all that I could have wished for.
Excellent service, friendly staff, pleasant accommodation. Our request for flexibility with dates was obligingly met.
Friendly staff, comfortable and nice hotel with a superb restaurant. Only discomfort was the extra bed which was of a different era (old folding spring bed), but then I didn't feel like complaining so I guess it probably could have been changed...
I was lucky to get an "upgrade" to a double room with very nice bathroom (original Jugendstil elements from 1911 were kept in place), separate toilet, wooden floor etc. - Service was excellent as well as breakfast. Super value for money!
Excellant staff and wiling to help with the language No
A very nice, comfortable hotel in beautiful surroundings. If you need a quiet, peaceful hotel in which to relax after the stress of work Kurpark-Hotel Ilsetal is just the place to be. The staff could not have been more helpful, first class. No
We really enjoyed the location! The staff were very accommodationg and friendly. The food was wonderful. Overall pleasant experience. Did not like the fact that we could not find the internet access that was suppose to be available.
Nice breakfast and also a fine restaurant. Sauna is for free, but bathrobes had to be hired.
Location We paid for a second room for our parents not knowing that the family room had a sofa bed for the kids. This was not explained or shown to us on arrival.
Stunning location, good food and relaxing. Felt we were overlooked because of language barrier. Only 1 waiter on out last evening there spoke English, luckily we knew basic german but we didn't use facilities eg sauna etc because of this.
Beautiful location; Food was very good Would like more information in English
We had a window looking on a little pond in the middle of the estate. The heating worked great and fast. Our room was quiet and large and had a bath tub. The staff was helpful and friendly. The food in the restaurant was good and not too expensive. Included breakfast was worth it + srambled eggs and ham . The wellness area and the sauna have obviously been renovated, peaceful and relaxing! We didn't have a timber-framed room.
