Gutshaus Stolpe

Location: Stolpe, a small village in Germany.

Notes About My Experience:

  • Located in the small village of Stolpe, but completely quiet and feels like a very remote countryside hotel.
  • Warm welcome from the receptionist. She escorted me to the room, somehow tried to say she didn’t speak much English, so I got the introduction in Germany.
  • The room was similar to many of the Relais & Châteaux hotels I have stayed in Europe with an “old school” design. The bed wasn’t very soft, but comfortable. The rain shower wasn’t separate from the bathtub but worked well.
  • Complimentary fast internet access with over 10 Megabyte per second in download, and just under one in upload.
  • I had a nice walk in their big garden. The hotel has very beautiful surroundings, and I really liked how quiet it was.
  • Great food at their Michelin-starred restaurant. Björn Kapelke is a talented young chef that joined Gutshaus Stolpe recently. We had a great conversation before the dining experience.
  • The breakfast was basic, especially compared to the dinner on the night before. A way to improve this hotel experience would be to develop a menu of good dishes prepared by the chef.
  • Excellent value for money. It’s one of the cheapest Relais & Châteaux’s, and for the price, you can in my opinion not go wrong.

Duration of Stay/Visit: One night.
