My wife and I, along with our small dog, stayed here over a weekend in July. Everything was wonderful. We were met by the owner who was very cordial. The rest of the staff were all also very friendly. The location and views of the Rhein and surrounding country were amazing. We were provided a wonderful breakfast each morning and enjoyed our evening meals on the outside terrace enjoying the wonderful views. The room was quite large; however, the staircase getting to the room was quite narrow. There are many hiking trails in the surrounding forest which to explore and enjoy breathtaking views. Overall, it was a wonderful and unique experience.

Everything was great- service, food, & room. Stayed in the suite & it was very comfortable & most enjoyed time. Great Hiking trails up & down the hill. Out of the way so make sure you have time to take the river cruise, it is beautiful & worth it. Must spend at least 2 full days!!

I stayed at this hotel this week for one night. The room looks quite ok but the bed is very short so I spent all night hitting the bottom part of it. There was no hot water in the room at all, it was rather a very small amount of non cold water so taking a shower was a terrible experience. The restaurant had only three red wines in the list ñ, even choosing one of the “best” the quality of the wine was terrible and the price very high.

We stayed at this lovely little hotel last night and had a wonderful time! We booked the family suite, which gave us plenty of room. Our daughter loved the curtained bed! The rooms looked our over the Rhine and surrounding countryside, which was lovely. We enjoyed a generous prix fixed dinner and then explored the grounds. As castle bluffs it was fascinating touring and trying to figure out the original layout of the castle as some parts are in ruins. We all slept very well (the noise from the train didn't disturb us at all). We had a very filling breakfast. Before and during our visit the people were lovely to deal with; we especially enjoyed our interaction with the owner. We had been warned to bring cash to settle the bill. Knowing that our room was up a very narrow winding staircase, we only packed backpacks to take in for the night, so we had no problem getting to the room. We noticed that there were other, smaller rooms that were much easier to get to. We highly recommend a stay at this unique hotel.

This Berg is one of a pair named the Hostile Brothers located high above the Rhine. You really do stay in a castle, watched over by the Suits - of armour. Konrad and his little brother at breakfast time, for example. If arriving by train at Kamp-Bornhoefen station on the Right Bank of the Rhine, the staff offer a taxi transfer from the station to the castle. I recommend their offer be accepted - the hill is steep. The Rhein Steig footpath runs right by the front entrance; Cruises on the Rhine can be taken from the pier at Kamp-Bornhoefen, towns on the Left Bank such as Boppard can be explored via the ferry (passengers and vehicles) a couple of kilometres downstream. As may be expected in an old, old building, not everything works perfectly. Your warm shower might suddenly turn hot - or go cold. You might have some flies accompanying you for meals, or moths trying to get into your room if you have the windows open and lights on at night. But these characteristics are more than compensated by the friendliness of the staff (some do speak English), and the romantic ambience - both outside and inside. And if you come here from outside of Germany, keep an eye on the flagpoles - you might see the flag of your country flying in the breeze

We stayed a night here on our walking tour along the Rhine. This is a great stop if you really want to stay in an old castle - in many castles most rooms are in new sections and you do not actually stay in the real castle part. The views of the Rhine are stunning but there is some train noise. Our room was small but nicely furnished in the period. No TV or phone in rooms. No lift so be prepared to walk lots of stairs. Dinner was included in the rate and we were served a very nice meal - drinks were extra. Suits of armour in the dining room add to the atmosphere. Staff are nice but have limited English. Breakfast was fine with a selection of food on each table rather than a buffet. I do not think that there was any expresso coffee available. You also ned to be aware that it is cash only for payment. All in all, this was a unique stop in a hotel full of character.

We had an amazing night in this old castle perched on a hilltop along the Rhine River. The views were magnificent, we could see the Rhine as well as the surrounding countryside. The quaintness of the castle was a very worthwhile experience. We enjoyed a delicious meal outside with all the glorious views around us.

My parents and I stayed here two nights in the castle suite. It was beautiful! The suite had plenty of space for all of us and a great view of the Rhine. Breakfast was delicious, and the castle's restaurant also provided tasty dinners. I love that though this is a hotel, it feels quaint and family-run still. Everyone who worked at the hotel was also very helpful and friendly. They arranged shuttles and taxis for us and packed us a huge breakfast to take with us the day we left as we left before breakfast time. So thoughtful! This is a great place to have as a home base for traveling the Rhine area.

Absolutely loved staying with these folks and can't wait to return next year with more family in tow. The castle itself has a lot of cool ruins on the grounds with the main part of the castle contains a beautiful restoration, with fantastic relics of glory past on every wall and around every corner (to include the suit of armor that spooked my wife a few times) To start with, our room had a fantastic view of the Rhine River below and we loved sitting by the window and watching the activities below. The room was comfortable in every way and decorated as one may have imagined from days of old. Getting a bad night's sleep was not an option. I surprised my wife with the candlelit dinner for 2 and again, a fantastic view from the wonderfully decorated dining room started our evening. The meal was fit for a king (or at least a knight!!) and all courses were delicious. Both our host and hostess were very friendly and helpful and we felt welcome the entire time. The town of Kamp-Bornhoffen sits about 2 km below and this is a great place to catch a boat for a leisurely cruise along the Rhine (as a help, the KD line has two departures heading to Rudeshiem at 0910 for the modern and 1110 for the paddle wheel, that is used in the high season with a return of 1640 and 1840 respectively) As a final note, this castle only accepts cash, which is not unusual but something one needs to plan for

My wife said she would like to stay in a castle so I chose this one because it was easy to get to by public transportation and it seemed to have a medieval look to it. We booked a year in advance. Anita was very helpful in answering questions before and during our visit. They provide a complementary shuttle to and from the train station. Just before you go, check with the hotel. Their web site says to walk to the Café/Hotel Garn Rheinischer Hof and arrange for the shuttle there. It was closed at the time of our visit, so Anita said to call the hotel when we arrived. I had trouble calling with my phone. There is no public phone at the station. Fortunately a gentleman waiting for a train was able to call information and got a different number for the hotel, which he called for us. From then everything was fine. We were picked up shortly afterward. The castle is partially restored. The guest rooms are located in a tower on 3 floors. Ours was on the first. In keeping with the old castle concept, there is no elevator. (A staff member offered to help us with our bags.) Also there is no TV, fridge or safe. Internet may be available downstairs but we didn't try it. Fortunately, the old castle concept didn't extend as far as the beds and washrooms. The washroom was modern and very clean, withlots of hot water for the shower. The double bed (two mattresses) was very comfortable. The castle is furnished with both original and replica furnishings, paintings and artifacts. The room was warm so we kept the window open. Even though our room was very high, we did notice the sound of the trains that passed below us frequently. We did have a room with a view of the beautiful Rhine, and the view was spectacular. This is a European hotel so the bed only has a very good comforter. It can be hot so you might consider bringing a sheet and maybe a light blanket with you. (There were blankets in the cupboard.) Also, they only provide hair/body wash so you might want to bring shampo and conditioner. There is not much to do by the castle itself. Parts of the ruins are closed off, probably for safety reasons. There is another open tower we climbed, also for the view. From other parts of the ruin, there are other great views. There is a restaurant and outdoor area for eating and drinking. We noticed some possible hiking trails in the forest nearby, but we didn't try them. We did walk down the road to the nearby Castle Burg Sterrenberg. We had preordered the 5 course candlelight dinner for 2 (64 Euro). Our table was beside a window with a Rhine view. We were able to purchase wine with the meal and were given a choice of dry, semi-dry or sweet. The wine we chose was very good. The meal itself was excellent: the salad was tomato, cheese, lettuce; the soup beef in broth; the appetizer onion pie; the main course had enough for 4 people. It included two potatoes dishes, vegetable, 2 small sausages, 2 large pork cutlets and 2 good-sized beef steaks, served on a warming pan so we could eat the warm food at our leisure. Dessert was custard, fruit and whipping cream. The service was nicely paced - it took 2 hours to eat. A good continental breakfast was included. It had cheeses, sliced meats, yogurt, fresh fruit, bread, buns, juice , tea, coffee, etc.. They were able to shutle us down to the station in plenty of time to catch our train. Payment is cash only - no cards. Anita informed us of this at the time of our booking. Overall the castle met or exceeded our expectations. We definitely recommend it.
