We visited the Kesslermuehle for two nights commencing 21 April. The journey to the hotel through he Alpine roads of the Black Forest was a thoroughly enjoyable experience; we had many panoramic views of the beautiful countryside. On arriving at the hotel we were delighted by the location - just on the edge of the village with open views over the countryside yet handy to walk into the village- the reception and public rooms are all to a very high standard, pleasing on the eye and very tastefully furnished. Our room was spacious well equipped and wonderful views ; we had a very high quality bathroom , a large bedroom agea and a separate seating area with lounge furniture opening onto a full size balcony.
The hotel has a very attractive swimming pool with sun beds over looking the southern vista, in addition there is a Sauna and two Turkish baths , again with separate shower facilities.
The bar is well stocked and leads into the dining room. The menu is extensive and nothing too much trouble for the staff; if you don't like what's on the menu you can choose something else. Evening meal consisted of a starter , a very extensive mouth watering salad buffet, a main course and desert. The wine list was extensive and nothing was too much trouble for the team.
Breakfast was another experience; we had so much to choose from there was something for everyone; I am particularly impressed by German bakers as the wide selection of breads and pastries is the best I have ever tasted!
On our last morning we were supplied with paper bags and encouraged to take a packed lunch of whatever we likes from the breakfast buffet.
The hotel supplies mountain bikes and we took then for a spin round the local lake both on and off road...
We would go back to the hotel without hesitation and would happily recommend it as it must be one of the best in the Black Forest!
