i picked the Hotel because of it's location travelling back through Germany (It's near Koblenz). I always like to stay in a Hotel of Character by choice, as a chain is the same and doesn't give you a flavour of the area. It's a four star Hotel and I can only say that the staff were amazing in every dept. but especially Julia and Miriam in Reception. I was travelling in a van because I had to pick up some products that we required urgently but they still made me feel special and were very attentive. the food in the restaurant although buffet/canteen style with large sharing tables was extremely good and of high quality. the bedroom was comfortable (single) and well appointed. I can only say that I am looking forward to staying again with a little more time so that I can use their amazing spa facilities. In 2 words JUST FABULOUS.
This is not a place I would recommend. Hotel is extremely poor it's more of a youth hostel. Rooms are terribly basic, small and not soundproffed. Rooms are not even in the castle but in two buildings at a few minutes walk from the castle which is very much of a pain when you have to manage luggages. It is also very difficult if you are not fit and willing to walk up hill. Restaurant is not restaurant but a self service. It is a good canteen but this is just a canteeb. Overall this hotel is a true disappointment
Pros: The choice was made due to location - next to A3, middle way from Munich to Brussels. Booked Deluxe room, with child bed as additional option (bed was delivered). Breakfast was extremely crowded, but food itself was kind of Ok, and staff was nice and caring. Looks nice outside and on the pictures.. Cons: Deluxe room is smallish for its price. Heating was NOT working (eg system shows the numbers, but the room not getting heated at all). Since it was 11pm already, we took all the blankets we found and tried to sleep.. Parking is free, but under building garage was very tight (we have 5th series BMW) to park. Standard check-out time listed as 10:00am.. really? We did left on 11am, but that was on Saturday. Reception is in separate building, need to walk there for check-in / check-out. No late night food available (although reception is 24hrs). Actually, apart of all that "Schloss" marketing buzz, the facility is very simple, like 3* hotel, but somehow on ridicules pricing.
The hotel is actually a complex of buildings including a baroque hilltop castle. A beautiful sight. I slept in Haus Weilburg which is quite down the hill requiring an 8 floor equivalent walk up outdoor to the restaurant and reception. Didn’t mind but can imagine this is challenging for the less fit. The room was huge, sober, almost spartan. Nevertheless there is a stocked fridge, a good desk to work at, a solid shower. Being 1m90 I was happy to have a double bed, seemed not that large enough for 2. Had a quick dinner in a kind of cafeteria with buffet, not what I’d call cosy, with long tables seating 20 which gives you some agoraphobia travelling alone. The food was nutritious. The Schloss clearly caters for large groups (conferences I guess). The breakfast was ok. There’s parking here and there on the hill but may add a couple of flights of climbing. The reception is very friendly.
I booked this hotel online after reading reviews on a third-party site; I should have trusted my TripAdvisor community instead. This is a conference hotel. They're in the business of booking meetings and seminars at their property. If you want to stay in a picturesque castle in Europe, there are so many other options open to you. Yes there are a lot of separate buildings and steps but that info is readily available on their website and shouldn't surprise you. My issues are completely different. I walked into my room after driving for hours, pumping gas, and unloading the car. The first thing I wanted to do was wash my hands. The bathroom had no hand soap whatsoever. I'm not the type to step into a shower stall in my shoes to use the liquid soap pump; luckily, I carry my own bar of soap with me. I can't remember ever visiting a hotel with no hand soap at the bathroom sink. No coffee in the room and breakfast is only available 7-9am, which makes sense for a seminar group but probably not for tourists who might want to sleep in a little bit. I'm sure they advertised that check-out was 10 am, but I didn't see that on the booking site and was taken by surprise. To get the wifi password, you're instructed to put in your mobile number to receive a text. Because it costs money every time I take my phone off airplane mode in Europe, I was able to call the front desk and get a password without paying $10 to get a text. Keep that option in mind if you're in the same situation. There's a writing pad on the in-room desk but no pen. There's no fan in the room and no reading light. The average height of a German woman is 5'4.9" (yes, I checked) and I'm 5'6". I couldn't get near the stick-on magnifying mirror in the bathroom without standing on tiptoes and leaning over the counter, so it was useless. If this is indeed a conference hotel, why is there no safe in the room to leave your laptop? I've traveled extensively in Germany and on this trip have stayed at six other properties so far. Some of the hotels were very small family-run properties, catering to tourists, and they all had room safes. This struck me as very odd. Be aware that your door doesn't lock when you close it. You must lock it when you leave, and lock it when you're inside. (This is not a complaint -- just advice for travelers accustomed to self-locking doors.) I guess if I had read the TripAdvisor reviews which focused on the nature of this property, I wouldn't have booked it. I'm glad I only committed to one night because this was not an enjoyable experience for me as a tourist.
If you are looking for a good seminar location, I can highly recommend the Schloss Montabaur. It's certainly a pleasure to be in the main (old) building where you can easily get lost on the way in or out. The selfservice restaurant provides very good food and offers an excellent view.
Stayed here on a business trip for one night and very happy on arrival. The hotel is in a lovely location with amazing views if higher in the hotel. It’s set across different houses bit of a shame I was in the lower of the houses on the hill which meant quite a walk up to the restaurant and reception up a steep incline so wouldn’t recommend to those who struggle with hills. Also my room had no air con where my colleagues in other areas of the hotel did so maybe something to check when booking. The breakfast was very pleasant sat out with amazing views. I would definitely stay here again if had opportunity work or pleasure!
The Hotel Schloss Montabaur is an ideal location for organizing corporate parties and related events. Located inside the Castle Montabaur, on a hill in the middle of the town, the place offers great views of the surrounding region. The hotel rooms are reasonable, but there is room for improvement. The food and service in general, is top class.
In all fairness, I was expecting something else.. the room was very, very small, but comfortable and clean (the bed might be too small for taller people). The issue was that you could hear absolutely everything from the room next door, including the fact that the person was brushing their teeth... so really everything. That is something I don’t appreciate in a hotel. The breakfast was excellent, with great variety for each and every taste (warm and cold dishes, fruits, salads etc.) and you can even have breakfast outside on the terrace while enjoying a beautiful view of the city. The staff was also friendly and polite, but we didn’t have any other interaction than at checking in and out, which was ok.
We had a car breakdown in Germany on our way to dream holidays. My family of 5 people including a 4 year old child was accommodated in Schloss Montabaur hotel for 2 days. I have to honestly say that I’ve never been in worst place ever in my life. This hotel only concentrate on a business clients and their meetings and we as a simple family travelling to reach a holiday destination “forgot” to take our smart suits and cocktail dresses with us on the occasion of staying in that place so we looks doddgy and funny wearing casual clothes and so the looks and laughs on us never ending which makes us feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome. It’s a 4 star hotel and none of the brochures says single word in English we didn’t know the times of meals and when my husband went for a coffee 5 minutes past 11 one of the hotel stuff says it’s free then the other stuff make an argument and bring the bill for a coffee as she says that because it’s a BUSINESS lunch time now we are obligated to pay for it. Most of the staff don’t speak english at all and behave very unwelcome if you are trying to communicate. Never heard of any Good morning, hi, hello, thank you or even a simple smile! on the second day of our stay we had to leave the rooms before 10am so we did but we had to wait until our taxi at 3pm to come and dropp us off at the garage where our car was repaired, so we sit outside of the reception for 5 hours in 45 degrees sun with a 4 year old child and absolutely noone ever ask us if we would like a glass of water. I’m absolutely disgusted by the way this hotel treat their guests. Apart from the staff attitude, lack of English instructions and been a ridiculed by the other guests hotel is located in a beautiful scenery with a breath taking view from buffet. Rooms are clean and high standard and the food it great. I’m hoping to never had to go back to Germany and this hotel again. Thank you Scholls Montabaur for making this stay in Germany even more stress-full that it was after our car breakdown.
