Made a one night visit. During that time I got to enjoy a hotel with good bedrooms, resturant with nice menu and wine/beer list to choose from. In the morning I enjoyed a okay breakfast. As I'm not looking for continental breakfast I only explored bread, coffee and juices but that was all good.

We stayed here for a family celebration in nearby Heubach. The "family suite" rooms were well-appointed and decently sized, although I wouldn't really categorize them as suites.

Nice quiet hotel on the outskirts of Gross Umstadt. There is a nice walking path along the hotel which tells the story of wine making. This path has very nice views over the surrioundings. Rooms are large and modern

I've spent 2 weeks at this place and for me it feels like a home away from home. the location is great, walking/running trails right out the front door. The staff is awesome and the prices are good the restaurant is great. If I travel in this area again I will make a point to stay here
