Family friendly, it is in fact only should the hospitality of the staff a higher priority. We have just returned from here straight with the breakfast or dinner almost continuously only unfriendly faces and unfortunately had the feeling 'please do not respond' had! Even on the check out it was once again clearly as the bill had received - it was not asked how we had fallen, as not look and no good trip home thanking wish. In my view, is lacking most servants a kommunikationsschulung with the handling of the guests, so that the guest also comfortable and again ... einbucht. Only then will there be a future for all! read hotel review

This time in january we had, as 2013 in january, great winter weather with snow and %singlelinebreak % Sun. Now think about, whether we should not in the summer time a motorbike trip at this really nice hotel. %singlelinebreak % Price-performance ratio was simply. read hotel review

We were 5 days with two chihuahua to guest in this beautiful hotel! The friendliness of the staff is incredible! No matter, whether a pillow extra wanted or we beverages on the room, always immediately and in a friendly way! The food was excellent and plentiful, we had booked half board! The hound you can only stress! Dogs are also allowed in the restaurant, was tied but that is of course! In the surroundings there are very many and beautiful hiking trails, but also cable cars, restaurants and shops. In short we wonderfully relaxed and will definitely stay there again! ... ☺️. read hotel review

The price-performance ratio was very good. Really friendly, young and competent staff! We had a spacious, clean room with adjacent renovated bathroom. It was a winter vacation planned, but the snow stayed, so we had to do an about-turn on a walking holiday, which was very well possible, as the hotel is very centrally located. For a winter holiday, the hotel is located in the immediate vicinity of the cable car to the wurmberg mountain. The hotel is highly recommended and we would come back again very gladly! read hotel review

We stayed here for the christmas time spent. Unfortunately without snow. But for the weather wasn't the hotel's fault. Comfortable, manageable hotel and restaurant. Our room was large and well furnished. The bathroom was renovated. The size of the bath for 1 person completely sufficient (home, i am also ' alone into the bathroom). The room size was great. Double bed (180 times 200 centimeter), 2 bedside tables, couch, chair, small table and a closet with a safe (free of charge) is available. Furthermore, a 'desk' (there is also the tv on it) and a chair. Had a room to ... the backyard. The staff (so, what the staff met) is very nice, friendly and helpful. The menu for the restaurant offers a lot of choice. Price/performance ratio is ok. We had not long wait for the food. The drinks were brought fast. The santa claus dinner at the heiligenabend was a 4 - course menu. The restaurant was very nicely decked out for (the other time, but now still more partylike). The order was served fast (restaurant was fully booked). Only, that the dinner about 4 hours (including 45 minutes giving from sanata claus) congregate, i personally not so good. We have for this year again booked. But this time in the autumn. Guests arriving with dog travel (we have a labrador) i am following tip/hint: Dear guests of the ' altes forsthaus in Braunlage'. The hotel recruits on its website so, that it is very children and dog-friendly is. Unfortunately rain still people (for us it was the 'older' generation or simply said the 'old') on, that the dogs (no matter, whether small or large) in the hotel and especially in the restaurant. The ireland standard time wanted from forsthausteam. We booked this hotel, because it advertised (it was unbelievable, as many hotels no animals or an additional charge (not enough) take. The hotel is free of charge. If they are not animals or children like, then please book another hotel or accept, that children and dogs in the whole hotel and restaurant welcome are. There are so many hotels in the resin, why not book one of them and complain with the staff and with the owner of the animal. Read just before the booking, the hotel which sells everything. Therefore, your vacation and holiday the other guests also good and can be relaxing. (i'm excited, because the 'older generation' on the dogs upset. Should i now also complain, because some 'old people' were there?). If you don't have children and/or like animals should consider it carefully, which hotel booked. We are very pleased with everything and will be back (maybe we have next time more luck). read hotel review

    Super nice and professional service and always with a smile. We have celebrated new year's eve and loved it, despite the many guests had all worked great and the staff were very friendly, fast and helpful. Despite all inclusive was constantly for your drink requests asked and you get everything, what you wanted.

    Breakfast is normal, with sausage, cheese, scrambled eggs and sweet. What i personally really liked, were sweet rolls, white bread or similar, otherwise it was ok. The food was very good, prepared with much love and presented. The portions so, you really could get full and there hardly managed, but the most important thing, it was very delicious.

    Yes, here we had luck. We had room 60 in the 2. floor, with a tiny bathroom. If you larger than 1.75 m is, i do not believe, the bath at all can be used. The bathroom is probably only recently modernized, but the size, one couldn't change anything. Otherwise it is just a 3 star hotel and not new, for 2 nights it was fine for us, but longer, i would have in the room may reside. The bed is also only 1.60 meters wide, but i a reasonable mattress. Room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and the maid, our pajamas very nice on the bed covers, what you otherwise only from the south knows, very nice.
