Charming location/beautiful view/sheep outside balcony. Very small town. Hotel restaurant is the only restaurant in town. Food is good. Hostess speaks very little English. Good little bakery/wine shop run by Frank on the next block.
cheap sound isolation between rooms not good
the room was comfortable and clean. the menu was very varied and our meal was beautifully cooked and presented and very reasonably priced. all in all excellent value for money.
The hotel is at a good location, at the arrival we could choose from two options. Although the room was facing to the main road, it wasn't noisy. We had very nice breakfasts. Tha tub was ver-very slippery, we had to put in a towel.
We have stayed here several times just for one night, and this was the first time we stayed for longer. Once again we can find no fault. The food is superb, varied menu at a good price. We were given good advice about where to visit in the local area, and a free rail/bus pass was supplied.
Although it did not affect us at all, this hotel, being in a quiet country location, would not be suitable for anyone looking for a lively night life!
We had a flat tire on a Saturday, and the owner called and found a place that was open and could fix it.
Friendly Hotel Staff
Lovely family run hotel with clean, comfortable rooms. Good value for money. Superb food with a varied menu.
Price and location were good (even though it wasn't where we thought it was when we booked - we were after a place near Waldshut, much further south, near the Rhine). Food was also good and the staff were nice despite a lack of English (fair enough - this is rural Germany). Initially it seemed like our arrival was unexpected and it took sometime before someone found the booking and could check us in (we put this down to being late season with few guests?). The only other issue for us was the pillows - we both ended up with stiff necks!
food was good relatively quiet location lack of credit card payment mechanism was an inconvenience
Very friendly and helpful staff, the breakfast was local and fresh
Friendly people and nice location. Construction works on front road spoilt the atmosphere for two days with noise and vibration.
No English spoken at all. Menus were in German only.
It was very quiet. Only cash excepted. Restaurant and bar are closed on Mondays.
The peace and quiet, and the extremely courteous and efficient service.
friendly, helpful and considerate staff, a lovely stay and an excellent dinner. n/a
Friendly staff and management and exellent quality of the food We missed a kettle in the room to make our own coffee and or tea
Very efficiently run hotel. The hotel wasn't full while we were there but was somewhat disappointed with our rooms because the balcony had the roof of the function room/kitchen in front of it. Would have preferred a room with an unobstructed view.
The staff are very friendly, patient and helpful. The food in its restaurant is so far the best we have during our entire 3 weeks holiday in Germany.
Everything was excellent. I like it so much. Next time, I will stay at it.
The location of the hotel is right on the edge of the Black Forest, which made a hike quite easy to do. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was perfectly located for our visit - Europa Park, Triberg, and Felburg.
Extremely helpful staff; comfortable accommodation; lovely food; excellent location; appreciated the tourist card which allowed us to travel on the train. we will be going back !
very nice hotel and friendly people.
Early check-in was useful and the location was quite good. Reception were friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Quality of the "Comfort" room was poor for the price (especially considering the hotel group running it). Bathroom very old and cramped. The hotel itself was a typical Schwarzwald hotel style but although balconies had flower troughs there were no plants in them (mid-summer) yet all houses and hotels in the vicinity did. Slow service in bar/restuarant. Dinner menu and breakfast choice a bit limited/poor. Hotel rating didn't match reality. Website did not mention trainline runs past hotel.
I was met by the Innkeeper Ludwig who was very friendly and welcoming. He spoke very good english and was helpful with my enquiries. Breakfast was plentiful and the Evening meals were good value for money. Simonswald is situated in a beautiful part of the Black Forest and is ideal place to stay for touring the countryside.
Sympathetic staff and atmosphere. Caring and warm people. It feels like you're and old friend while being a new guest. Beds are great!
very friendly staff
They were very welcoming
Central location in the Black Forest, close to Triberg. The half-timber building was beautiful and well kept. The staff was very friendly, even though only one spoke English, which wasn't a problem. The restaurant is highly recommended. They are very generous with food portions and everything was very delicious. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a nice porch lined with flowers. I would definitely stay again.
Extremely good value for money. Very clean. Spacious rooms and large, renovated bath rooms. Excellent breakfast. Great views over the black forest from the balcony. The restaurant is closed on Mondays, the one day we visited.
The owners are very friendly, made us feel very welcomed and at home. The rooms were very nice and clean. We could tell that the owners love what they do. The food in the restaurant was excellent tasting and at an excellent price. Food was homemade - they had the best honey and bratwurst I've ever tasted. There wasn't any soap in the bathroom in the rooms.
Our host Ludwig was excellent and made us feel at home. Lovely location right in the heart of the Black Forest not too far from Frieburg so easily accessible. Would definitely stay here again.
The owner and his staff are very good at taking care of any needs you may have.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Traditional german food was excellent
The atmosphere of the hotel. The room was great (large and nicely decorated). We had alse dinner at the hotel's restaurant and was really nice.
Room large and clean. very pleasant staff and excellent restaurant.
Beautiful country location. We loved the view, the fresh air, and big windows. Nice bathroom and historic home and decor. The host was very kind and showed us nearby points of interest that we enjoyed exploring. Check-in is until 10pm.
Nice old fashioned rooms & feel to the hotel. Polite staff - when not outside smoking! Poor location, on the front of a large industrial estate. Poor breakfasts,dozens of flies on food every morning. No food was covered. Served each morning second hand coffee off other tables, the pot was filthy - coffee cold...lazy staff problem. Room nor bathroom was not cleaned for whole 3 days...bed made only. Wifi only in certain rooms.
A great hotel, best team and value for money !! Thank you
The food served was excellent. The staff were competent and generally helpful. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
The room is large, clean and comfortable enough. The selection of TV channels could be larger, though. The price/performance ratio is good. We arrived at 11:30 PM, and the hotel was closed shut. There was no one at the reception desk to let us in. We had to scream our way in, only to be informed that "we should not arrive so late" - where was that stated? After all, this claims to be a *tourism hotel*! After we explained that there was *no mention* in the booking system of any need to call if one is arriving later than a certain time, the lady at the reception desk apologized and tried to make amends - and she was honest about it. It was, nevertheless, a really frustrating experience.
Breakfasts were very good. Bathroom, bath was incredibly small and only hand held shower
Friendly and warm atmosphere.
excellent stay no
Location in the Black Forest was peaceful and quiet and walking paths were all around us. Dinner and breakfast were very good.
What can I say the hotel and everything about it was superb. None
Quiet clean atmosphere, Extremely friendly and English speaking for the German language challenged travelers. Dining was a pleasure with a more than adequate menu variety. Child friendly and safe. Beautiful mountain atmosphere in an adventageous location for local events and sightseeing..
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant was fantastic! Try the trout. The rooms were exactly as we expected - comfortable. We have three children so we booked one of the quad rooms and they each had a bed.
The family running the hotel were very friendly and helpful. It is a lovely hotel in a beautiful quiet location. Local food in the restaurant was inexpensive, tasty and locally sourced. The black forest cake has a well deserved reputation!! We would not hesitate to come back.
Friendliness of the staff, the breakfast which is very good. We booked a 4 beds room but there wasn't a free 4 beds room anymore, so we had instead 2 2-beds room. Furniture and decoration are rather old and could be refreshed.
Staff are very nice, breakfast was excellent!
Location is a very rural and quiet area, with a stream running at the back.
wonderful central location of the black forest area. At the bottom of the mountain Kandel. Was very nice to drive to the top of the mountain to go sled riding. The family owned hotel was super friendly. Even let us borrow sleds. Was about 40 minutes to Triberg and 30 minutes to Rust. Would definitely stay again. The food was absolutely divine and was able to serve at any time.
Owners were excellent, very friendly, food very good, great area and surroundings, hotel has a specific atmosphere and charm. We will definitely go back! Beds in the room were not too comfortable.
Nice family run place, clean and well maintained, plenty of parking.
Our stay was very relaxing and the hotel owner's were great with our crazy kids. The food was great and they even did a special order for our picky eater. The area was beautiful for an after dinner walk in the woods.
The Family who run the hotel are very frendily and healpful. A great Black Forrest cake.
This is a gem of a hotel. Not as remote or hard to find as it might look on the map, but very rural and quiet, set amongst beautiful scenery with great walks and fantastic value for money. Our room was large, and everything was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet offered a great choice, and we had a lovely meal in the restaurant in the evening which was nicely presented and good value. Coffee and cake (or beer) on the terrace on a sunny afternoon is recommended! The hotel/restaurant closes on Tuesday, the day we arrived, but arrangements were made to pick up the key and get in and the hotel owners couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful throughout. There’s another restaurant just 10 minutes walk away (for Tuesdays!) and Waldkirch is a charming little town just 10 minutes drive or a pleasant walking destination. Easy parking, free WiFi, but no lift. We will be going again – this hotel is lovely.
The hotel is located in the nature, in a quiet environment, and it is only 5 mn drive from Waldkirch. The staff is friendly, the hotel is clean and cosy and the dinner was good as well. The shower is a bit small.
The location was extremely peaceful; No-one was at the hotel when we arrived so the key was left in the porch with a note; Having booked in January and asked for a ground floor room, we were very disappointed to be put on the top floor; no consideration shown for disabled guests; no lift; no restaurant and no advice of where to get a meal
The service was outstanding--.food excellent-- cleanliness was everywhere. I plan on returning. Quiet and picturesque right in the Black Forest..
We got execellent services from the staff. Our room got upgraded by the manager, without asking. If I am back in Waldkirch I would come back to stay at this hotel. Very scenic surroundings as well.
Stayed one night on a trip to France and enjoined the quiet location and the excellent restaurant. Before leaving Denmark we tried to book the same hotel for our return trip to dk but was not able to.
Pleased with the Guest House and would stay again We arrived on their day off and found a note on the entrance door informing us that they would return at 18.00hrs. As it happened we arrived just minutes before, so no problem. Appparently it is the norm for Guest Houses in this region to have a day off. The quality of our stay made up for this minor problem. The food was good too.
The room was lovely and spotlessly clean. The daughter and son spoke good English and were very welcoming. Our breakfast was set out for us in the charming dining room and was very nice. Excellent value for the money. Ver quaint. The host did not speak English and I was initially afraid we could not communicate but the daughter was verv friendly, nice and informative
The staff is friendly, the hotel is located in the city center. The rooms are clean, and there is not much noise. The lightning in the room was very poor. It was almost not possible to read. Also the light was broken when I arrived into my room ! The blanket was only 1 cm thick and there was no woollen blanket in the cupboard! It was November and I was freezing! The parking space is very small, I could not park my car even though I asked the hotel to keep a parking space left for me.
Pleasant, helpful stuff, good food, hiking the surrounding mountains. You need car for easy access
Very nice, very friendly people. Cousy and big rooms. Good breakfast. Very comfortable for this price. Good landscape No shutters on one window.
Very friendly staff. Family atmosphere. Large and comfortable rooms fitted with quality furniture. Very good restaurant. Highly recommendable.
The surrounding was great. The restaurant is not so exciting !
The staff were most helpful, the facilities were adequate, and it is very well positionedfor visits to the countryside and the city. A lift would have been nice
very spacious room and bathroom, very clean and quiet, good breakfast
The rooms were big and clean. There is a river running right behind the house. The included breakfast was very good. The location is convenient if you have a car and want to travel around the Black Forest. The parking was free. We stayed for 5 nights and the room wasn't really cleaned. The room-made only cleaned the toilet, but she didn't empty the trash bin and didn't vacuum even once. There's no soap in the bathroom.
This a wonderful family run hotel. We are a family of 4-children 4 and 17 and stayed in rooms #8 and 9. Spotless, roomy, comfortable. We had lunch in the dining room--the best meal in 12 days of travel through Switzerland and Southern Germany--gourmet quality. The hosts were helpful with area information.
Excellent food including breakfast. Welcoming, friendly efficient service. Peaceful surroundings and family atmosphere. No soap in my room but my friends in another room did have soap
We walked along the peaceful area, went out for sightseeing the places nearby and we spent all of the 3 evenings with very delicious food, nice dessert and drink. Albert and Alexandra are the best hosts, very friendly and very helpful.
The view is amazing. The room was big but the furniture was old, the towels were very used, the beds were Uncomfortable
This Hotel Was amazing!!! By far one of, if not the best we've stayed at in Germany, in regards to Hospitality, Cleanliness, Friendliness. Our first morning at the hotel we missed breakfast, at 10:30am there wasd a knock at our door and it was the owner asking if we would still like breakfast since we missed it.
We enjoyed our stay here very much- the rooms were spacious with large balconies and nice views of the countryside. Location was quiet and relaxing. The owners were charming and very helpful. Breakfast was good and plentiful with eggs on offer. Dinner in the restaurant was also very good and reasonably priced. Nothing - if we come back we would stay there again.
very nice and clean hotel in a beautiful scenario. Owners are very friendly and helpful Tv channels only in German. Not a big problem,however
The hotel was very well kept. The food was fresh and very good. The owners were very attentive and always willing to help and to recommend places to visit.
The staff is very friendly.
Very friendly staff and excellent breakfast. Nice room with view over the green valley
Very good location in a central point to have access (in our case, by car) to most of the interesting places. Quiet and beautiful landscape. Excellent treatment by owners. Our room was spacious with a big terrace. Nice dinner with Swiss specialities in the hotel restaurant.
