Marvellous weekend stay
Posted Oct 17, 2016
From the beginning, the staff were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The room allocated was great. And *quiet*. Unbelievably quiet.The bedroom was warm, comfortable and spacious, the bathroom opulent and included a bidet. It was possible to turn the air-conditioning off at night, so as not to be kept awake by the noise or (gentle) breeze from above, and instead open the window for real fresh air when wanted. The doorbell fitted for the room was a surprising nice touch - not at all as intrusive as a knock (especially an unexpected knock). The hotel's swimming pool and the jacuzzi on the second floor were lovely to use on a Sunday morning before breakfast. Towels are provided right at the swimming pool itself.
The hotel is situated extremely close to the forest, various local restaurants, and even a luthier (someone who handmakes and sells stringed instruments. This particular kind are called "saz"). Perfect for someone who wants to potter around on foot and explore the area on a sunny autumn day.
This was my first visit to Schloss Bensberg, and I would definitely go there again.
