“A true Grandhotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

We've visited this magnificent hotel, with outstanding Spa, and wonderful restaurants, for the 4th time in a relative short period. The total concept is soo complete that you want to return. It's really a haven of luxury, relaxation, pampering, and delicacies in a royal setting. At first it felt like a place for the rich, arriving with our audi a3 amidst expensive bmw's and mercedesses and the like, but the staff really made us feel comfortable. Even in the splendid 3 star restaurant Vendome, we mentioned to the manager it was our first time visit to such a place, we were so much comforted, and treated like royals. The Spa truly is worthy to be named a 'leading Spa' because the quality of the treatments and the available sauna's, steambaths, etc. are of outstanding quality. Every room is grand, with high ceelings and nicely draped curtains, topquality flatscreen tv(s), very comforting beds and all marble stoned, warm feeling bathrooms. Of course no place is perfect, and we had some minor issues on our last visit, but the way our feedback was accepted and dealt with was very flattering; without a hitch the issues were delt with, and we got offered a room upgrade for the next possible visit, and a 4 course dinner in their excellent restaurant Enoteca. Tip: book a room in an 'unbusy' period, such as midweeks or non-national-holiday periods, great chance you'll get an upgrade to a suite for free or relatively little expense. We had that happen 3 out off the 4 times we visited the place!

LOVED THIS PLACE!!! Great view of Koln - you can even see the spire of the cathedral from this hotel. The service was terrific, there are places to get food within walking distance & the room was amazing. We bought dinner out and then enjoyed sitting out on the terrace at the hotel. What a beautiful setting for a picnic!

Back again. Although remotely located (45 minutes from Central Cologne by car), this hotel is everything one would expect from a class establishment. From the taking of your luggage, parking your car, the folks at the front desk and the quality of the rooms and amenities, Schloss Bensberg continues to impress. Under the direction of Marc-Michael Horn and his very capable staff, guests' needs, if not anticipated, are almost immediately met. The included breakfast will see most people through till dinnertime and the service in the breakfastsaal is at par with ever other service this class establishment proviodes.

Room Tip: The advantage of its relatively remote location is that no room location has negatives attached whet...
