Althoff Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg, Bergisch Gladbach
The pinnacle of old world luxury!
The Althoff Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg is truly an iconic old world luxury palace. From the ride up the long cobbled drive to the peak of the hill where the old "hunting lodge" of the former ruling class of Germany was built in 1711. This is no hunting lodge. It is a veritable palace and extraordinary in every sense of the word. I was literally in awe from the moment I saw it and throughout my stay. I could imagine this as the estate of the uber wealthy at one time akin to the Biltmore Palace. But fortunately, these days even a peasant like me can afford a room here. The room itself was not large, but was exquisitely appointed in the finest detail. There was a free minibar, which was a nice touch. But one of my favorite things was the toiletries from my favorite fragrance company, Penhaligon's in London. That was a beautiful little surprise. The staff were professional and polite. I walked around the town of Bensberg and enjoyed the architecture and gardens. I go to Cologne for business once per year and now I know that I will be fortunate enough to visit this hotel again in the future and explore further. I give this hotel my highest recommendation.

The hotel is amazing! The staff was wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. We have friends that live in the area. The hotel drove us in their car to visit our friends. They picked us up in style when we're were finished. First class service. The breakfast buffet was very good. We will definitely return.

Great hotel - especially for business
The customer service is really second to none. Really good quality hotel and they have a 3* Michelin restaurant! The breakfast is plentiful and varied. Nice to stay out of Cologne but is only a 20 - 30 minute drive depending on what time of the day you leave.

Fine hotel let down by expensive extras
The hotel is marketed under the Leading Hotels of the World banner, and we booked a one-night stay here mainly for the spa facilities, and they did not disappoint - a reasonably sized pool with natural light, both sauna and steam rooms, and treatments if you wanted them. Welcome was friendly, and our room, whilst the most basic on offer, was double aspect, so the room felt bright and airy. Bed was a normal double bed, where I might have expected a queen, but at least it was a proper double, not two single beds pushed together, which is quite common in these parts. Where the hotel fails is all the expensive extras. EUR28 for car parking (not mentioned anywhere I could find on the website), over EUR30 for the buffet breakfast, an expensive set menu in the Italian restaurant on site. We were savvy enough to avoid these by visiting the nearby town, which is literally a few hundred metres from the entrance, but with more sensible pricing, the hotel might have got more of our business.
