10.0 Excellent
Pros: My favourite hotel for the Bayreuth Festival. Its location in the peaceful mountains looking down onto the valley makes it pleasant and cooler if its really hot in Bayreuth. The rooms are super comfortable and super large with balconies and sofas - really more like suites. The large terrace to have meals on is superb and the staff are just wonderful!!! Its 30 minutes drive from the hotel to be in your seat at the Festspielhaus or there is a shuttle bus...Oh and if you want a food change there is a Michelin restaurant in the Post Hotel in the village...
Cons: Nothing really - there was a wedding on so parking was a bit difficult but really that was the only minor issue.
7.5 Good
Pros: easy parking and restaurant stayed open until 10:00 am. Staff spoke adequate English.
Cons: The bed was kind of hard.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is in a wonderful location, surrounded by nature and in a quiet place. There was a Wedding the day we arrived but it did not affect our stay at all. we even got to see fireworks! The swimming pool and jacuzzi area is wonderful, the temperature of the water is perfect and it is very relaxing. The room was also great.
Cons: Just to say something: The Breakfast was good, but not wonderful. The food in the restaurant was also very good, but the desserts (like in most german restaurants) were boring and not very tasty.

7.5 Good
Pros: Very good breakfast and nice staff. Nice, small and quaint village. Easy access to the highway. very good to use as a base for visiting the surrounding cities / area. Very quiet and safe place, surrounded by nature.
Cons: The walls of the rooms seemed paper thin, you could hear all the noises from the rooms to the sides, including the bathroom noises... The hotel's restaurant was more closed than opened. Rather hard to find places opened to eat in the village (on a Tuesday all places were closed apart from one Italian restaurant).
9.3 Excellent

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Didn't try the restaurant, but some nice local dining places are in the close neighbourhood. A wedding reception took place in the premises, which wonderfully added to the sensation of nobility of days long gone. The breakfast was not spectacular, but nicely in harmony with the overall experience.
Cons: The reception closes at 6 PM, and taking into account the distant location from the nearest cities Bamberg and Bayreuth, You have to pay attention on not being left outside.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Had no idea a 13th century castle of such grandeur was in this part of Germany and in the center of the town of Thurnau. The town and surroundings looked like a movie set - so beautiful and visually perfect. My opinion. This should be a UNESCO site.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: On our way North after a hot week in Lido di Jesolo at Italy's best hotel Ancora, we set our GPS's at Bayreuth area and Hotel Schloss Thurnau. We've stayed in the area before in other hotels, but this was surpringly interesting. The old castle from 14th century is being renovated but rooms, restaurant and conference areas are already done. As this was a stopover we didn't have time to visit the surroundings. But what we saw going there, we'll certainly be back to stay a bit longer. Nice and professional staff, good food in a delightful setting outdoors in the courtyard.
Cons: As it was a hot day and we arrived just before 9 PM, we would have liked a fan in the room. We opened the windows, but with no wind, it takes a long time to cool down from 30+ to decent temps.
8.8 Excellent
Cons: Check in was a little difficult because the staff is very short handed. There was a wait but nothing serious

9.3 Excellent
Pros: I had a nice appartment with a comfortable double bed and a lot of space.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The room was spacious and comfortable with adequate amenities. Clean and serviced daily.
Cons: I thought at time of booking that (a) I had paid and (b) that breakfast was included in the price. However it was a quick booking as the accommodation that had been arranged with friends fell through and further there was a forth coming event in the town so rooms in all types of accommodation were at a minimum and reducing. So l may have overlooked filters for breakfast which l normally do. Further a notice in our room showed that breakfast was included in tarriff so l had assumed the same for us.

Cons: The reception was awful and unfriendly
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Food Staff Convinience
Cons: Only 2 pillows
5.5 Okay
Pros: It's next to the highway
Cons: very rude receptionist reception is at the gas station and there is no apparent information what to do upon the arrival . I don't really understand why the hotel with the rates like that has no it's own reception.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable quiet room with all the facilities you would expect.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: It has very good location for transiting guests and 24H check in. There are grocery shops and gas stations nearby as well. The price also is very reasonable. The room was clean and spacious.
Cons: The staff at gas station (check in is there) doesn't speak some basic English. During the summer it is impossible to sleep with open window due to all night truck activity (autohof). With closed window it was o'k, but again some days it was very hot in the hotel, consider it!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: It was very suitable for a short overnight stay next to the highway. The hotel seemed to be in a calm and safe area. The room on the ground floor was spacious, well equiped, beds comfortable.
Cons: The reception in the evening happened to be inside the gas station which wad unexpected. But the checkin was ok
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Said they didn't have my booking but they could make a new booking at a much higher cost
4.5 Okay
Pros: not alot. near the highway
Cons: the front desk is not a front desk in the hotel , it is located 100metre from the hotel in the petrol station. this should be on the info. Especially when we were arriving very late. The hotel knew this. They could have let us know where we had to go. We booked a double room. But instead got a twin room. We were told that beds are seperate because they have alot of truckers/ workers staying who want two seperate beds. This is fine but dont call it a double room . this is a twin room!!!!!!
5.0 Okay
Pros: The location of the hotel was easily accessible off the autobahn. It was inexpensive and as the saying goes-you get what you pay for.
Cons: This hotel is like a truck stop. The check-in is inside the minimart. Your breakfast if you want to pay additional for the buffet-is served inside the minimart. The rooms are small and just felt dingy. It was at night and may be that altered our perspective a little but seems like a shady area. I would not recommend this place for families.
