How to Get There
A hotel has two obligations : giving service and making profit. And this is a delicat balance.
Weissenhaus however succeeds in an outstanding way to offer a superb service, and yet staying generous all the way.
And this in a professionalisme you dont experience often.
The village ( yes, it is an ancient village, renovated completely), and the park ( as the connecting space between the several buildings) is just beautiful.
The restaurants ( Bootshaus, Manoir and Sushi bar) are excellent. The Spa and wellness are well equipped and on a high level. The breakfast is top.
The staff is on a high level, and they make sure you only have to enjoy.
If you want to relax, this is the place to be.
Are there negative points?
Mowing the grass starts too early.
But this is a tiny remark.
We hope to come back in the winter.
It has taken me a few months to write this review as I have such mixed feelings. On one hand, this is indeed a beautiful hotel with luxurious aspects. The sprawling grounds are well maintained and great for long walks. The staff was friendly, personable, and accommodating. Breakfast in the separate cottage was available until noon - which was a a luxury in itself. The spa was open and bright and airy, yet it was made cozy by the fireplace, the comfortable seating and the good supply of blankets, cushions, and towels. I also really enjoyed the food and smoothies in the spa. The modern Asian food in the "cellar" restaurant was as tasty as the decor was stylish. There was even an ice-cream making class that was fun and hosted in a gorgeous kitchen space. The hotel is pet-friendly and you can even reserve a dog-sitter (15€/hr) if you do not want to leave your dog alone while you enjoy the spa, or while you go to breakfast. Nice.
Despite all of these good things, there were other aspects that were definitely not up to the standards of a luxury property. I stayed in a room in the Schloss and was reminded several times that coffee and cake were available in the afternoons. I always find this to be a nice offering at a luxury hotel, but I have never before been charged for it. For the price one pays per night at this hotel, I hardly expected a 5€ charge for an afternoon coffee. It seems a bit mean. It was lovely to have breakfast available until noon, and the food was nice, but neither in quality nor selection was it luxury. The staff throughout the hotel were professional and friendly and often called you by name, but in the breakfast cottage there seemed to be a hope, if not an expectation, that staff receive a gratuity if you stayed for more than a day or two. On several occasions I saw staff accepting tips. Certainly there is nothing wrong with a gratuity, but it is not nice to feel it is expected as a server hovers by your table too long or too often near the end of your meal, especially after you have stayed a few days. The spa probably merits a separate review. The spa itself was beautiful, but the services were below par.
Don't mistake me. There is a lot that is good here, but is it the level of luxury you paid for? Not by a long shot. I had the feeling there was a lot of old money here and a majority of German clientele. Perhaps by German standards this hotel is the height of luxury, but if you can afford to stay here for a week, I'd opt instead to spend 4-5 days in real luxury in a European capital.
We have visited the Grand Village in autumn for a long weekend to get away from it all and it was perfect. The setting away from everything and just by the beach is quiet and beautiful, we walked along the beach and through the forest just taking time off.
The hotel itself is magnificient. Our room was large, overlooking the gardens with an open fireplace and a huge bathroom that completed the spa atmosphere. The spa area itself is the best I have seen, with a nice pool area, beautiful sauna and steam baths and very nicely arranged relax areas all around. Though I personally am not such a spa fan, I spend two full days here and enjoyed every minute.
One point where there is room for improvement: The gymn could use some more weights and bar-bells.
The food is outstanding. The goes for the breakfast as well as for the restaurant by the sea. The stroll out to the restaurant on the water is particularly nice.
We will certainly come back.
