The hotel is located on the Bavarian side near to the former border between the two Germanys. You can reach it only by taxi or with your own car, there aren't even bus connections: The whole region is sparsely populated, with the –well developed– road network having little traffic.
The hotel has three outstanding features: Its location on a hilltop of about 650m yielding a wonderful view onto the calming Rhön-Landscape; its quite extended wellness area with at least three large pools, a giant corkscrew-slide and a couple of saunas; the slide points already to the third characteristic: it is a true paradise for families with children. Thus the guests cover a wide range of ages from toddlers, infants, young children, adolescents, to their parents and often even grand parents. At the same time it is a big building complex smoothly following the shape of the hill, and with its 300 odd rooms it is geared to high-volume business. The rooms are in general very spacious apartments adapted to family life, with an entire kitchen facility and a balcony. Sanitary installations are OK, the hotel having been revamped in 2010 (the not too frequent elevators date from 1974).
We spent there four days and three nights. The hotel has three restaurants, two of them self service. If you are interested in gastronomy, just forget it. If you don't have excessive demands, though, if you are interested in nice excursions on foot, on bike or with your car, if you like relaxing in inviting wellness facilities and if you don't bother being surrounded by children (living in a country with a solid reputation of not being too child-friendly, we truly enjoyed their uncomplicated presence and behaviour) -- under these conditions the hotel is good choice, even without children. I suppose special rooms in a quiet part of the complex were given to us as guests having booked with HRS. By the way, informations given by the personnel are not too reliable, always depending on the person you ask.
We were there for personal reasons (my wife wanted to pay visit to a small village in the proximity where she had lived for two years as a child before her family left the former GDR in a cold winter's night).
