Our family (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed at Watthalden for 10 days and could not have asked for more. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic, lots of local products (fresh baked goods, jams, and honey) large selection of fruit, smoothies, cold cuts, eggs any style, and coffee drinks and tea a la carte without extra charge.
I have yet to find a more accomodating and friendly staff in any hotel. Everyone was very friendly and seemed to actually like their job. Great tips on what to do.
For dinner, we used Watts bistro next door. Their food is absolutely the antithesis to stereotypical German food - refined, original, and each dish with a distinct flavor. The wine and beer selection is also real good and found it convenient not to have to drive.
Locationwise, close to old downtown Ettlingen, and within 15 min drive to downtown Karlsruhe. Perfect place to stay and explore the Blackforest and surrounding cities. We stayed on our previous trips there already, and will be back agin for our next stay.
For best rates, try contacting the hotel directly. Everyone speaks English at the front desk.

We arrived at Rebenhof at 845 PM after a long day driving through the Black Forest area, including a blast though the Schwarzwald Hochstrasse. Even though we arrived just 15 minutes before closing for dinner, their chef was kind enough to customise vegeterian dishes for us. The food was fantastic, even if the portions were much, much too large.
The hotel has a fabulous view in all directions, and we were treated to one of the most brilliant sunsets we have seen. Our room overlooked a bunch of vineyards and was extremely nice as well. Service was prompt and the staff was friendly. The icing on the cake was when we forgot our iPod in the room and promptly got a call (even though our only number was an international one) telling us about it, and offering to send it to a location of our choice,
Overall, a fantastic experience, with the only downside being that we stayed for just one night.

We stayed here at the end of a 3 week vacation in Germany and Austria. The Lamm was very near the best of the best. When we return to the Black Forest area this hotel will be on our list again. Room views great, meals great, staff great!
