Out, the weather was very cold and rainy. Inside: smiling people, friendly environment, and very comfortable room, with strong personality. I recommend the very german breakfast, full of fine products, sweet and salty.

We had a two bedroom suite which was very well appointed and nicely decorated in a very traditional style. Location is excellent for walking in to town. Unfortunately we weren’t aware that we had to pre book to eat dinner at the hotel as we were looking forward to experiencing that as we love good food. We weren’t expecting to have to have take out in our room!!

Yes it's not easy to find...up a steep cobblestone drive on a motorcycle not so fun but this place is so cool inside...lots to look at...breakfast was amazing...close to everything...our room was ok nothing special...bed was comfy ...can not remember the gentleman's name that worked there but he was so awesome....went out of his way to leave ice by our door before he left for the evening!

We stayed here in September. I recommend this as the weather was great but the crowds had dispersed. Our hosts were hospitality itself. The hotel is charming and traditional. Of great interest to me was the fact that it had been the hangout in the 1800s of Heidelberg students who used to duel in the hall above the restaurant. Their swords and uniforms remain as do their photos and some of their drinking paraphernalia. The food blew us away. breakfasts are fabulous and well worth it. We had a Michelin dinner which was amazing.

Following trip adviser reviews just had to give this place a try, Not easy to find, but what a find, the hotel is up a very quiet lane, one of the owners is Ernest and he is a lovely gentleman and justifiably proud of his hotel.. The rooms are great and probably the best sleep on holiday we have had.... The Butler Breakfast at 25 euros a head seems a tad expensive, but believe me, you HAVE to try it...awesome is the word, great food, great hotel, next time we visit, we must try tho be there when the restaurant is open...Thank you Ernest, and Patricia who was our Butler, Great Stay, thank you

Whilst travelling through Germany we fell upon this hotel by chance whilst looking for a room for the night, and oh so glad that we did! Right from the moment you arrive you're made to feel special and that never faltered through our stay here! The hotel itself is gorgeous, lovely grounds, fabulous rooms and incredible restaurant. The dinner menu sounded great and didn't disappoint at all. My husband and I started with the snails with blue cheese - sensational! We followed this up with the lamb cutlets, beautifully cooked, nice and pink inside but lovely and crisp on the outside. The sauce that accompanied these was fantastic. The cheeseboard was to die for..... fantastic selection of perfectly ripened cheese in perfect condition, absolutely superb! All of this was accompanied by a gorgeous bottle of German red followed by port with the cheese. We took espresso and cognac on the terrace to finish off an incredible meal! An absolute must do if in Heidelberg! Gorgeous nights sleep was then followed by a breakfast fit for a king! Attention to detail again came with a paper menu with our name on it. All of the products where locally sourced and all equally delicious. Fabulous muesli, mango smoothie, vanilla yoghurt, chai apple crumble followed by a selection of meats, cheese and smoked salmon. This was all accompanied by the most gorgeous bread and with optional selection of eggs cooked to order! If you get the chance to stay at this fabulous place grab it with both hands and enjoy! My only regret is that we couldn't have stayed longer!!!

We received a warm welcome upon arrival with refreshments. Wonderfull old building full of history on the other side of the river. Nice and quiet neighbourhood. Loved the bed and the bath! Wonderfull breakfast; not if you have small children who dont appreciate the finer things in life. Lovely eye for details! Will try the Michelin star dinner next time around

I have dined here several times as it's dinner menu is impressive. This was my 1st overnight stay and it ticks all the right boxes. The rooms are charming and the service exemplary. Breakfast is also a gastronomic delight.

We decided to stay here on our first visit to Heidelberg because we had read Mark Twain's A Tramp Abroad, which mentioned this hotel as a student duel site. If you're a history buff, how could you resist? It turned not only to be historically delightful, but all over wonderful. From the beautifully decorated rooms to the most amazing breakfast and the most charming young man at the desk who could not have been more helpful. When in Heidelberg, we'd stay nowhere else!

If you're looking for a taste of homespun Heidelberg with lashings of quaint and eccentric luxury, then this is the retreat for you. I stayed here as a single female traveller (attending a conference) and loved the subtle yet welcoming hospitality of the place. Whilst the bedrooms are an overstuffed concoction of 1980's Laura Ashley on steroids (think matching wallpaper, bedding, curtains and cushions), they exude a welcoming homeliness that makes you feel quite cocooned from the rigour of everyday life. I was in a bedroom nestled into the eaves of this traditional home, with splendid views of the river and castle. The welcoming glass of port, bowls of wrapped chocolates and glossy coffee table books were a lovely touch after a long day traveling. The hotel is only a twenty minute walk by the river from the town centre, so benefits from being quiet and secluded whilst still proximal to some delightful restaurants and bars. In reality though, it is hard to pull yourself away from the acclaimed hotel restaurant at all. This is where you find yourself served exquisite local delicacies by white gloved waiters, one arm formally tucked behind their backs as they reverentially explain each course in hushed accented tones. At points, I wondered if I had stumbled onto an Agatha Christie film set by mistake, tucking into the charcuterie plate whilst mounted antlers trembled on the walls around me. I would come back here in a flash. I loved the character and welcoming elegance of this hotel. It was exquisite.
