Hotel Perlenau perfectly met my needs, as I was on a solo motorbike tour of Austria and Germany and, on my way back to the Channel coast, I wanted to spend a day exploring the Ardennes. I spent two nights in the hotel. The location was ideal, as Bastogne is less than two hours away on some lovely roads and Malmedy and other historic sites even closer.
The hotel is situated down a cul de sac in a quiet wooded spot away from the main road. A stream borders the property and a footbridge gives access to a number of hiking and walking trails. There is ample parking close to the hotel.
The hotel itself was built in 1840 and is 'rustic' in character and very homely. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel restaurant provided a good buffet breakfast and a good range of evening meals (I particularly liked the mustard soup). The staff appeared to speak only German but I found them friendly and helpful and tolerant of my limited German. All in all, I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely make a return visit in future.
