Johann Lafers Stromburg
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Stromberg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2010

For those in the English speaking world who do not know who Johann Lafer is, (I admit that I had not heard of him before moving to Germany) he is an award winning chef who also has several cook books, television shows, a product line, and heavens knows what else. He’s basically the German equivalent of Emeril Lagasse or Gordon Ramsay in terms of celebrity factor.

His two restaurants (one with a well deserved Michelin star) are located in the hotel, and that is why people come to Stromburg. It’s a bit of a foodie pilgrimage. Therefore, it’s quite difficult to separate a review of the hotel from the restaurant. But since I have nothing but positive things to say about both, I’ll give it a go.

The hotel itself is quite small, with a limited number of rooms. Each room is named after a famous chef and we had the “Bocuse” room, which was charming and comfortable. In addition to the usual hotel amenities we were very impressed by the attention to small details, such as a clock radio with iPod docking station, a blue ray player and selection of films, a bowl of complimentary fresh fruit, and a welcome glass of champagne. Turn down service came with two bottles of chilled complimentary water and a small box of his famous chocolate truffles. Breakfast was included in the price of the hotel room and that was another culinary treat, which we might have enjoyed more if we were not still stuffed from our 8 course meal the night before. One thing is for sure, they make sure that you do not leave hungry!

A word about the staff, who were top class all around! Everyone we dealt with was friendly and accommodating. While we suspect that Herr Lafer is often away, he can rest assured that his guests are being well looked after.

And one final word of warning, if you want to stay on a Saturday night you will have to book months in advance.
