When we planned for our Romantic Route trip, I was quite doubtful that we would have an easy trip as it was our first time travelling or 'hotels hopping' with our 6mths' old baby. Having been used to big resorts in the likes of Four Seasons etc, I was worried that smaller establishments would not have met our expectations. Upon arriving Rothenburg, Herrnschloesschen was easily spotted. It is located right along the main street of the village, easily accessible by car. There were ample of parking lots right in front of the entrance. We parked our car and was greeted immediately by a kind gentlemen who helped us with our luggage. He single-handedly carried our 4 large suitcases and escorted us to the reception. I regret not taking down his name. We will just refer him as 'the kind gentleman' from now on. At the same time, Frau Haike also warmly welcomed us by serving us some nice aperitifs. The entire check in process was flawless, extremely welcoming and Frau Haike made us feel at ease by explaining the hotel facilities, the village's attractions and even booked us a table for dinner at Zur Holl. Without us realizing it, the kind gentleman had already carried our suitcases up 2 fleets of stairs and placed them in our Tulip Suite. Frau Haike escorted us to our suite, orientated us to the hotel's surrounding. The room was tastefully furnished with modern amenities yet with hints of old charms such as wooden beams, crooked walls etc. Tulip suite is a split level suite where you will need to access some low staircases in order to reach the bathroom and living area. Not a big deal at all and it was not dangerous even for our baby. The hotel even took the initiative to decorate the baby crib with 2 cute lamb soft toys, our baby cuddled them right away when he spotted it. I had some relaxing quiet moment in the luxurious bath whilst hubby watched over the baby. Every night's turndown service was a great surprise with offerings of delightful chocolates. Tulip suite overlooks the hotel's small garden and courtyard. I will give the hotel staff (all of them) a rating of 5 stars, given their commitment, approachability and flexibility. Nothing is too much for them and they genuinely appeared to be happy working at the Herrnschloesschen. Since it was the first time for us to travel with our baby, we of course forgot quite a few essentials i.e diapers! We realised this only at about 6pm when all shops were already closed. Frau Haike reassured us that they will get the diaper for us, and immediately the 'kind gentleman' went to buy us a super large sized diaper pack! Also we kept forgetting things in the car, the 'kind gentleman' immediately offered to retrieve these items without a slight hint of displeasure. By this time, he had already re-parked our car in the hotel's garage which was quite a walking distance from the hotel. For your information, parking at the hotel's secured garage is complimentary. The kind gentleman valet- parked the cars for all guests. Breakfast was a delight as well. The hotel offered ala-carte selections which consisted of bread items, preserves (home -made), fresh juices, hot beverage selections, cold cuts, cheeses and eggs prepared to your likings. Staff at the restaurant were extremely accommodating. We realised that they've prepared a table with high chair for our baby even before we asked for it. The location of the hotel is worth every Euro that we've paid for. Travelling with a baby is not easy especially when you do need to go to and fro your room to retrieve items or to facilitate your baby's nap time. The hotel is so strategically located that we find it so easy to commute within the village. We did not get the chance to have dinner at the hotel's highly rated restaurant because my husband was too embarrassed to bring a baby to a formal/ high-class setting. Our little one tends to get impatient and rowdy during the evening time. But we were highly impressed to see that almost every table was taken or reserved for dinner during the 2 nights' we were at Herrnschloesschen. The check out process was just as easy as the check in. The kind gentleman had already parked our car right in front of the hotel during out intended check out time. The hotel extended our check out time to 1.30pm without much persuasion, they showed empathy that I needed more time to pack my 4 large suitcases. Before we left the premise, the duty manager so kindly provided us with bottles of water for our road trip. Like I said before, this hotel has exceeded our expectations in all aspects, I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Rothenburg. To the team at Herrnschloesschen, thank you for your remarkable hospitality!
