Phenomenal restaurant and gorgeous views!
Posted Jun 16, 2015
I picked this hotel and the town at total random when finding a mid point for Switzerland and Rothenburg Germany. I'm glad I did because Hornberg ended up being one of my favorite towns on our whole trip. I also had the very best steak I've ever eaten in the hotel restaurant! Also the best Vanilla ice cream I've ever had and my husband was raving about the strawberries that came with it.
We had planned on only staying one night but loved the area so much that we stayed another. The first night I had the turkey, beef, and pork skewer which was also fantastic esp the turkey. The room was clean and a typical European room nothing special but nothing bad either. The view however was gorgeous! We could see the town and the whole valley. Some of our prettiest pictures from our trip came from the window in the room at Schloss Hornberg.
The only bad thing I would say is that the staff seemed to go back and forth on whether they were going to be nice to us or not. It was very strange. By the last morning we were saying to each other I wonder who we are getting today, Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde? But because the food (even breakfast esp scrambled eggs) was so phenomenal I would definitely recommend this place.
ps. remember when ordering steak in Europe medium is still mooing. you need to be very specific on how you like it or it will come rare
