How to Get There
Stayed in the blue suite for a night. The rooms were enormous and the furnishings curated to suit the slightly fussy 19th century feel of the place. They had some port and a small cake waiting in the room when we arrived.
A very quiet stay - there aren’t many rooms here. And not much in the hotel besides the restaurant. There is a wellness centre with a small pool that you need to ask reception for a key to enter.
The grounds were quite nice. There are trails leading through pastures with lovely views. But it seemed like members of the public can access these trails as well.
Most of the materials in the room and on the property were only in German language and only a few staff seemed to speak it.
No a/c in the rooms. It was a bit warm in the summer heat.
My wife and have read an article about Burg Schlitz last year in Canadian Magazine and since were amazed by the ambient and luxury this one of a kind hotel had to offer. We were lucky enough to book 2 nights and with already high expectations, we were not let down. The staff is extremely attention to detail oriented. The rooms are very spacious and clean at all corners. The high lite of our stay was having dinner in the Wappensaal. The staff is highly educated and super professional. This hotel is the perfect place for romantic getaway.
What an amazing place.... Thanks again for hosting us.
Very nice and romantic hotel with a lot of atmosphere. The hotel was recommended to us from a winemaker from Mosel. The room was spacious and elegant and the bed very comfortable. The service was very focused and friendly - both at the reception and in the two restaurants. Wellness area is nice and clean, but this is not a wellness hotel as such.
Having stopped off for lunch a few weeks earlier, we decided to treat ourselves to an overnight stay and to experience the fine dining in the Wappensaal restaurant. The hotel is a delight. The staff are charming and not intrusive. The Fine dining lived up to expectations. Each course was exquisite and the wine pairing exceptional. Why this restaurant doesn't have a Michelin rating is a puzzle?
Would certainly recommend and will definitely return.
A great place in an idyllic surrounding. Comfortable rooms and very friendly staff. The absolute highlight of our 3 night stay were the dinners in the restaurant (try to get a table in the red saloon - much more intimate then the main room). Not exactly cheap but worth every penny. There wasn't a single dish we didn't love! Go with the wine pairings and discover an interesting range of German wines.
There were some quirks, but really nothing major. We had to get internet access codes every day with a user name and a password (why not make it freely accessible??). Shampoo bottles in the bathroom weren't replaced until we asked for it. Same with the coffee pods for the espresso machine.
