“Inconsistent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2009

We spent a weekend with the family (5 rooms).
The setting and the surrounding marvelous, the offers exquisite.
But...
The food was totally inconsistent in quality. Sometimes near perfect and sometimes just not edible. Same with the service; sometimes near perfect and sometimes endless waiting. One evening, Saturday, we waited sliyghtly more than 2 hours until the main courses were served...
The rooms are furnished for the eye only. Some details are either missing or just not practical...
Public area toiltes were out of order and stayed that way sometimes for the whole day or even 2 days...

What do you expect from the last thermal spa in Germany which is still family-owned, especially when it is an Earl's family? - The best of the best. Right. And it is. The spa is ultra-contemporary, with an open fire crackling in the middle of the relaxation room. The olympic-size thermal outdoor pool is gorgeous - especially in winter when the vapours emerge from the warm water. Amazingly, they keep the pool crystal-clear - not a single leaf inside.
Another gorgeous thing here is the park which is inviting for strolls day and night. I stayed in a junior suite which was an oversized room with very comfy chairs and a large bathroom with separate tub and shower. Everything stately decorated.
The ambiance of the whole place is not stiff, but rather relaxed. The historical buildings are tastefully modernized, e.g. with wooden floors, even in the otherwise splendid ballroom. The bar is very recommendable.
Yes, there are some minor flaws, too. When I entered the bathroom first, there was an odor coming from the drain in the shower. After I had turned the shower on for a few seconds, the problem was gone. Another aspect: The way from your room to the spa and pool area is pretty long - but you are provided with a bathrobe, slippers and a tote bag to put some personal belongings in.
I was there because of a business meeting. I will come back with my family for leisure.

This is a very beautiful hotel. Wonderful building and very nice public spaces. Nice swimming pool.

The hotel rooms are also nicely decorated.

Unfortunately the first room I was allocated was extremely hot. No aircon and the room had been baking in the sun all day. The second room was very nice and cool.

Great bed, great bathroom.

My second room was next to some kind of mini-bar store room. Lots of noise from crates of bottles. Shame about that. Was woken up at 6!

I guess I just wasn't very lucky during my stay.

Staff a bit aloof but professional.

Room service was average. I expected better.

I spent a few months on a project in Paderborn and finding this hotel is the best thing that happened in that time. We drove the extra distance even though there are other decent hotels nearby.

Fantastic Spa. Fantastic Rooms. Great Breakfast. Unbelievable friendly staff. Spa. Golf, Tennis, great garden. Restaurants.

I really really love this hotel!!!

  • Liked — Everything!!!
  • Disliked — There's not much around. But that's okay, because you'll not want to leave!

I stayed here with my sister over the Easter break and it really is a wonderful, relaxing 1st class hotel. Very friendly and helpful reception and our room was comfortable, warm and spotless. On arrival there were hand made mini chocolate eggs and everyday of our stay they brought us a little gift like this - a very nice touch. The spa and wellness is good, the only thing is there was no indoor pool as such - although the outdoor one is an amazing experience - it is heated and it happened to snow whilst we were there. The food is really excellent and plentiful, and we enjoyed the Pferdestall for its atmosphere and being able to watch the chefs cook us something right on the spot. The evenings are a bit lack-lustre as there is no entertainment and so if you are looking for nightlife this isnt the place to come, but there is a nice bar in the hotel with good music and drinks. The surrounding area is also very beautiful - take a walk up to the deer park where you can feed them or head into the quaint town centre. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing break with first class service.

  • Liked — the professional friendly service, excellent food and relaxing atmosphere
  • Disliked — lack of indoor pool

We're having a few day's at the Graeflicher Park Hotel. The hotel is magnificent. It is so lovely that it was hard to drag ourselves away from the hotel to go to the surrounding park at all. The room is spacey and the bed is good. Breakfast is lovely and really two much. The pool is lovely and luxurious.
The Spa is out of this world.
The two restaurants are great.
This is a wonderful place to spent some day's together and to get well "pampered".
