This charming inn is a labor of love for Elisabeth Starz, the young proprietess who runs it with her husband and parents. The Starz family bought the historic mill, which dates to the 1640s, in 2003 and renovated it throughout, adding stylish features and modern amenities.
The inn has 12 guest rooms on three floors (no elevator that we could tell). We stayed in Room 2, a large corner room with a comfortable bed, views of the newly planted garden and a small but efficient bath. The inn is spotless throughout. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of most shopping and restaurants in the small, picturesque village of Landstuhl. All that was lacking was a comfortable lounge, or common room, and a computer/printer for printing out directions, boarding passes, etc.
Breakfast of cheeses, ham, sausage, cereals including muesli, juice, assorted breads, coffee and tea is included. Staff will prepare eggs and bacon on request.
A formal dining room - with fine wines, linen and crystal - serves an excellent gourmet dinner nightly. The same menu is available each evening in the adjacent casual dining area. The restaurant is a favorite with both locals and visitors and fills up on many evenings. venings. Great beer, wine and even an Eau de Vie distilled especially for Olmuhle are available.
Hotel Olmuhle appears to be popular among Americans with family or business at nearby Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and Ramstein Air Base. As we discovered, this delightful inn is also an excellent base for touring southern Germany and nearby France and Luxembourg.
Many of the Americans who stay here are visiting family members attached to Ramstein Air Base or Landstuhl Regional Medical Center.
