We were on a road trip from France to Holland and booked 2 nights here (Fri & Sat) - for us this was by far the best place we stayed at on our trip!
We were allocated the ground floor apartment which was adapted for wheechair access and perfect for us as we were travelling with my 86 year old mother-in-law. I had mentioned this in the comments section of my online reservation, so all credit to the hosts for picking up on this and allocating this particular apartment. The price was extremely good value.
Although Herold is a little bit off the beaten track it is well worth it and actually not that far from main routes. The location is in a small village surrounded by rolling hills, beautiful countryside with many interesting villages dotted everywhere. There are also great Nordic walking / jogging tracks all around the area which we wandered along on our first morning. In the afternoon we went for a beautiful drive along the Lahn river and stopped at various places and then stumbled across a Dragonboat festival in one of the towns.
On the first evening we chose to cook dinner ourselves (the supermarket was close by in the next village) and on the second evening we ate in the restaurant which has a lovely country pub atmosphere. The food was to die for and it was one of the best steaks I'd ever had - the menu prices were extremely good value and we commented that we should have eaten in the restaurant on the first evening also! Breakfast is included in the rate and was excellent.
The family were incredible hosts and we would highly recommend staying here. We definitely intend returning at some point in the near future. If you are looking for a relaxing get away with great hosts, amazing food and beautiful countryside then this is the place to come.
