We first stayed in the Rebenhof in the first week of April 2006. And returned in July and August 2006 since it is such a comfortable stopover (near the Autobahn) on our way south and we could relax and swim after a day of driving. What we especially liked about it were the spacious rooms (more like a suite or an apartment than a room) with two bedrooms, a living room with fully equipped kitchen corner (stove, oven + microwave), balcony and wonderful views on the vineyards from every window! The rooms and bathroom are kept spotlessly clean. The kitchen is a bonus when you are travelling with a lively two-year old, like we did, and you do not want to eat out every night. In the restaurant downstairs they were most friendly and went out of their way to spoil our daughter. They had high-chairs, Lego to play with and a complimentary dessert for her.
The restaurant is frequented by local families which is always a good sign. The kitchen is tending towards the Mediterranean, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. Dishes they are really good at and which I would recommend are the more traditional, regional Flammenküchle (a sort of crispy pizza with bacon and onion) for starters (its huge so share one) and the Maultaschen (comparable to Ravioli) filled with Porcini mushrooms in cream sauce. They go very well with the regional wines, you simply have to try, after all this is a wine hotel! They even have beauty treatments based on grapes. Many of the wines you have tasted the night before can be bought next door at the neighbour’s wine farm. In the summer you eat outside on the terrace and inside when its cold. The restaurant and rooms are smoke free, something we especially appreciated since this is quite rare in Germany. Another bonus is the nice (indoor) pool area with separate whirlpool, sauna etc. and a shower with coloured lights like stars. Massages and beauty treatments can be arranged. The hotel has many arrangements with inclusive meals that are really good value! Although the surroundings of the hotel are very peaceful (sometimes a tractor passes on its way to the vineyards) there is loads to do in the environment. It is right on the “Romantische Strasse” and near cities like Würzburg and the romantic Rothenburg ob der Tauber (if you have a car). There is also a famous altarpiece by Altdorfer and nearby Bad Mergentheim is worth visiting. Maybe for young teenagers it is less exiting. All in all I would recommend the hotel for families with small children and also for elderly couples. They have rooms downstairs for people with disabilities. The larger family rooms are upstairs, which means you have to carry your bags all the way up the stairs (there is no lift) but this is maybe the only disadvantage about the otherwise wonderful Rebenhof!
