Ringhotel Sellhorn
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Hanstedt
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We found this hotel through our GPS while looking for a place to spend the night while travelling south. I believe that the usual visitor, unlike us, probably stays here several days to relax while enjoying the beautiful natural scenery in the area.

The hotel is wonderful with practical spacious rooms. Our room even had quite a large balcony. The room also had a safe, minibar and a Wi-Fi with decent speed.

What was really special though was the breakfast buffet. I can't remember the last time I saw such a lavish breakfast. It even included sparkling wine (Sekt). I tried to sample everything but it was impossible even for a big eater like me.

Should you consider staying here you should probably stay more than one night.

This charming hotel, just outside Hamburg, is a superb place to stay if you want to chill and relax. The swimming pool is small, but very clean, and on Tuesday and Thursday morning, the aquacise ("water ballet") class is excellent and suitable for all abilities. The beds are large, with electronic controls to raise and lower both ends for comfort. The cleaning ladies are very thorough and efficient, and everything is well-maintained and beautifully clean and practical. Wi-fi for a week cost 69 euros, and was not very fast. People on reception and in the restaurant spoke good English, and were very helpful. The food was amazing - breakfast was particularly special, with bubbly and lager for those who wanted it, but more importantly great breads, pastries, meats and cheeses, as well as fruit, cereals, different milks (including soya), quark, yoghurt and amazing tea and coffee. The tea is by Ronnestadt, it is organic, and comes in different flavours - I really liked the darjeeling. I can recommend the facial - there is a beautician service on site - my face felt great for days afterwards. The ambience is very relaxing and I would definitely stay there again. The area, near the luneberg heath, a nature conservation area, is very quiet but potatoes and kale and honey are amazingly delicious ubiquitous local produce. Thank you to everyone at the hotel - we had a great stay.

If you like a charming and quiet stay outside to city center of Hamburg, the Hotel Sellhorn is the place to stay. The hotel is located just about 30min outside the city and has old but very charming rooms. The hotel is located in a small but beautiful village in the Heide, a nice region to visit in Germany. The staff was very professional und helpful and made the stay a good experience. The food in the restaurant has a great quality but is not very cheap. The room was very clean and the garden next to the hotel ist nice too. Really can recommend it!

This hotel is located in the small town of Hanstedt about 10 minutes off the Autobahn between Hamburg and Hannover. It is very much worth the small detour.
The quality of the rooms and the restaurant is perfect. The dining and the breakfast is excellent. Service is perfect.
There is a nice indoor pool and three saunas in the spa section. Nice!
As a family with two teens we stayed in a suit, costing about the same as two double room. A bit pricey but still good value.
Highly recommended!

Thank you very much for your positive comments.

I travelled to the Ringhotel Sellhorn for a business trip to Hamburg and was impressed.
Great food - great service and an atmosphere of being in the country-side (which one of course is). The staff are extremely helpful ! I stayed in room 110 - which was very spacious. I dined in the restaurant for breakfast lunch and dinner - and all three were excellent!
The hotel has an own kids play-room - which I will let my kids test next time we stay there.
I can definately reccomend this hotel to anybody who is travelling in the region of Hamburg and needs a quiet & charming place to stay.
