    While the view acroos the country was good from our room, number 129, unfortunately it was above the yard that contained the rubbish/recycling bins which were untidy an had rubbish around them. I would suggest some form of cover so that these items cannot be seen from the guest rooms.

    What an incredible hotel! We arrived early after an overnight flight from the states and were warmly greeted and immediately escorted to a sumptuous breakfast in a magnificent high ceiling room while our room was readied. The hotel allowed us to check in early so we could get much needed sleep. It is a gorgeous hotel with every amenity. While unfortunately their beautiful spa was closed during our stay (probably the reason for a great rate), nonetheless, we totally enjoyed our stay. Our room was large and comfortable with a view of Cologne in the backdrop. We had dinner in the lovely Italian restaurant in the hotel, which was very, very good.

    Very good

    Its location within 15 minutes from downtown Cologne is of course interesting, but its main attraction is the Michelin Star restaurant Vendome. We travelled all the way from Cape Town to have a dinner experience in the Vendome, and it was really superb!

    If you really want to find something negative: they automatically assume you will use the valet hotel garage parking, but there is ample parking around the hotel.

    The food is great, the rooms are very nice, the bars have live piano music (evening and afternoon), it is a real castle well animated.

    The pool is a not very big.

    Fabulous

    The Hotel is very Beautefull . Rooms are very comfortable.The staff are OK. The restaurent is the best !!! Spa is very good.

    All the services and facilities cost very much if you compare to the rate of the room. Sometime was shocked. For exemple 28euro Breakfast!! Internet 1 hour 10 euro's.... end...

    Superb

    I liked the service and quality of the accommodation. Room sizes were large and all fixtures and fittings were first class.

    Food was very pricey. The shower was over the bath and you had to step up over a high bath lip to access the shower. For this quality accommodation, I expected a saparate shower.

    Hotel atmosphere is v relaxing yet sophisticated; staff are particularly helpful & friendly. Our group included 10 year old & 22 year old daughters as well as granny in her 70s. The hotel did very well to suit all our needs, from playground & pool for younger daughter to chauffeur service to and from local metro for granny. The setting of the hotel is v grand & impressive with elegant interior. 3rd floor bedrooms have lovely panoramic view of Cologne, including cathedral. Rooms felt spacious with v high ceilings & lavish bathrooms.

    Lack of kettle in room proved expensive with room service cup of tea costing €14.50. Breakfast was also pricy at €28.50 for 10 year old. We didn't want to hire a car and granny found trek to and from Cologne on metro (as Bensberg is final stop) v tiring, although it was fine for the rest of us. Indeed we preferred being able to relax in evenings away from Cologne after busy days sight-seeing.

    Exclusive

    The staff and facilities are wonderful, and spa treatments are heavenly. Although it is pricey, it is not over-priced in comparison to the facilities and comparable hotels. The small mini-bar in my room was even included. I stayed in a "superior double room" that had a small sitting area; absolutely lovely. I ate in the Italian restaurant--wonderful! Huge buffet breakfast; even though its 28Euros, it's much much better than some places I've stayed charging almost that much.

    I booked at the last minute over Christmas period (had to cancel other plans due to snowstorm) so hotel was extremely full and therefore I was in a building detached from main. The room was absolutely lovely but with the huge snow that hit us, I would have liked tea/coffee maker in the room because the main building had the bar and restaurants.

    pleasant up to date 5* hotel in an impressive castle with friendly service. Most rooms don't have a separate shower, but they gave us an upgrade to an excellent suite with separate shower and bath tube.

    Its a shame that you have to pay for internet services in such a hotel

    Fabulous

    A superb exquisit place with a dedicated excellent staff. The ideal place to stay when attending a show at the Cologne Messe and enjoy beeing outside the busy city.

    Poor & overpriced Wifi-Wlan and Internet service, not matching the hotel standard.
