Herbst im Schloss - perfekt

  • 5 of 5
Wer in diesem behutsam und liebevoll renovierten Schloss nach Einbauküchen mit Spülmaschinen und perfekt schließenden Türen sucht, ist auf jeden Fall fehl am Platz. Den Standard gibts anderswo - hier findet man im historischen Gemäuer viel Platz für sich, die Familie, die Freunde.

Hier kann man drin wie draußen - es sind keine fünf Minuten zur Werra - zur Ruhe kommen oder feiern oder auch musizieren. Hier ist Platz für alle Gäste - nicht zuletzt beim gemeinsamen Essen im Hof, in dem sich Rosen ranken und im Sommer der Oleander blüht.

Die Vermieter sind freundlich und unkompliziert - und es ist alles da, was man braucht. War dreimal da - es war dreimal perfekt.

Sylvester im Schloß, leider nicht sehr komfortabel

  • 2 of 5
Wir verbrachten mit 4 Familien Sylvester im Schloss, die Außenbilder des Schlosses hatten uns sehr gut gefallen.

Die Wohnungen sind sehr großzügig, jedoch ist der allgemeine Zustand nicht, wie es der Zustand "renoviert" vermuten lässt:
- alte Fenster, von denen der Lack abspringt und die sich schlecht öffnen lassen
- Wasserhähne, die sich nicht richtig bedienen lassen (Küchenhahn drehte durch - ließ sich kaum an- und ausmachen, Hahn im Bad geht nur so, dass alles nass spritzt)
- Heizungen, die laute Geräusche machen - vor allem Nachts unangenehm
- im Schlafzimmer sehr alte Teppiche (nichts für Allergiker)
- kaputte Fliessen / Fugen in der Dusche
- Küchenausstattung sehr karg: Küchenmesser, die sehr schlecht schneiden, keine Schere, keine Spülmaschine, kein Spülmittel, alte Spültücher, kaum Töpfe und Schüsseln.
- unter dem Waschbecken im Bad tropfte es, wir standen in einer Pfütze vor dem Spiegel,
die weißen Fließen waren gelb Verfärbt.
- Die Heizung in der kleineren Wohnung war nicht anstellbar - und erst nach 30 Stunden (!) betriebsbereit.
- Ein weiterer großer Nachteil: fast alle Schlafzimmer sind Durchgangszimmer, dies wurde in der Beschreibung nicht erwähnt. In der kleineren Wohnung musste eine Familie durch das Zimmer der nächsten Familie, um ins Bad zu kommen. So etwas sollte vorher erwähnt werden - gerade an einem Domizil, welches sich an große Gruppen wendet.

Es wäre hilfreich für die Interessenten, diesen unüblichen Grundriss auf der Homepage zu zeigen, denn diesen speziellen Grundriss erwartet heute kaum noch jemand. Durch die fehlenden Innenfotos der Wohnungen auf der Homepage konnte man den Zustand des Innenbereiches nicht einschätzen.

Für den Standard empfinden wir dieses Feriendomizil zu teuer und nicht komfortabel.
Wir können dieses nicht weiterempfehlen

The 800 years old castle located on a small ledge provided ones protection for a ford. The castle is located at the town’s edge next to the church. Parting from this point there is a road that leads directly - among the chalk cliffs- to the fields. The Werra spreads along its path forming loops as it goes by romantic timbered cities, castles and palaces. Until 1989 ran at this point the German bounder between Hessen and Thüringen, you can track evidence. The castle was built on the basis of a valley palace destroyed during the 30 years War from 1558-61. There has also been plenty remodelling since then. Some years ago the castle was restore after getting the permission and support of the Monument Preservation. The opportunity was used to incorporate baths, kitchens and heating system also to add space and modern decoration style (incorporating in part antique furniture) to the houses. All provide the necessary for self- sufficiency. If wished we can provide warm meals or breakfasts.

Other Activities: bicycle tours, canoe tours, balloon tours and cross-country skiing
