Set high above the Neckar River the hotel has a commanding view of the river and surrounding countryside. The hotel is adjacent to the 11c castle which is now in ruins although it still costs 3 euros to climb among them. If it is was situated in the UK one would not be allowed to enter for health and safety reasons. The hotel and restaurant occupy what was formerly the stables. Our room was quite small and was on two levels, it was clean and well decorated and had a wonderful view over the valley. The dining was layout was a bit odd with tables arranged in no particular order giving the impression that they were shoved into any empty space. There were only a limited number of table overlooking the valley and if you were seated in one of the oddly arranged tables it would to my mind be very satisfactory. We were seated with a window view towards the back of the dining room which had clearly not been used for some time as there were cobwebs hanging from the table lamp and an assortment of dead insects littering the window sill. Not surprisingly this took the shine off what limited ambience there was. The service wasn't particularly brilliant and the dinner was passable and over priced. No bread was offered with the meal and although we ordered the soup with garlic bread no bread arrived. Make sure you tell the waitress how you would like your meat done as they don't ask. The breakfast was just OK, the scrambled egg was cold and leathery and as the cold meats were left uncovered, tiny flies were in their element. The place could do with a lick of paint here and there and if more attention was paid to the quality of service and food as well as cleanliness and ambience it could be a first rate hotel as the views are stunning.
