We enjoyed a two night midweek stay in an executive room with dinner on one night. The room was very nice with a view into the forest but, having seen into some of the standard rooms as well, I am not sure that the executive room was worth the upgrade; the standard rooms did not look a lot different.
Dinner in the Armada (main) restaurant was excellent, certainly worthy of its two AA-rosettes. Breakfast was slightly disappointing though. While the cooked breakfast was reasonable and there was a mid-sized buffet, the range of fruit was very limited on one of the mornings and on both mornings the orange juice was cheap juice from concentrate and not the freshly-squeezed juice described on the menu. Also, the bread was not great and the croissants/pastries were just small bake-offs. I expect more from a luxury 4 star hotel.
We used the spa twice. It is very small! The pool is only 9m long and about 2m wide and so as soon as there are three people in it, it is pretty much full. The gym is also small with only one treadmill, one rowing machine, two bikes and a few weight machines. Thankfully it was not very busy during our visit but I suspect that it would get very crowded at weekends so beware.
Despite the gripes about breakfast and the gym, I would still recommend Rhinefield for a relaxing stay if you can get a good deal.
