We decided to stop over in Barr based on Rough Guide comments, and the positive tripadvisor reports decided us on Chateau D'Andlau. Well done tripadvisor but poor marks Rough Guide!
We opted to find a restaurant in Barr so only had breakfast in the hotel, but we can happily endorse other reviewers' comments on the quality and character of the accommodation and service.
Having driven up the wine route from Colmar that afternoon through so many beautiful villages Barr was unexpectedly small, almost deserted and generally underwhelming. Maybe I could have researched it better or maybe everyone was getting over the Bastille Night festivities of the previous day and night.
The one restaurant we could find open in the village centre - Hotel Le Brochet - was busy with fellow tourists, and they looked after us very well with excellent regional food and wine.
In summary, Hotel Chateau D'Andlau itself is excellent for a stopover or as a peaceful refuge - but don't expect anything much from the town of Barr.More
