Sauerland Stern Hotel
Ranked #5 of 38 Hotels in Willingen
Reviewed 15 September 2015

Older hotel that keeps the qulaity of the vacation the focal point. Rooms are exceptionally clean, location is great, and food is terrific. Vegetarian to Sirloin...they have feresh fish, fruit, calamari, salmon, pasta and the lists goes on.

The town is clean and typical of a resort town (many items of interest to see). Glass blowing shop, vintage collections of cars and memorabilia. Giant slide and gret views from ski tower at the top of the resort.

Room Tip: get the meal card with your room. All meals are buffet and include drinks and dessert.

Near the center with 2 good supermarkets closeby and restaurants. Plenty of parking possibilities P1-P9. Kid friendly hotel with various options to keep the kids busy during the summer. Lagunan connects via a tunnel to the hotel ( left side) and on the right you can find a cinema, ice skating and Eldorado ( activities for younger children, table tennis). The children also gather in the center of the hotel on the 1st floor where the rooms connect. Although playing here seems to be prohibited I think it is permitted when the weather is bad. My daughter made many friends here. The disco can be enjoyed by the children as well on Friday and Saturday. There is bowling next door to the disco.
Dinning experience is not that pleasant as it is a huge place with thousands of people. Breakfast and dinner is average since they cater to large numbers. You can expect a long line at the warm meal section for dinner which is annoying. Food finishes fast too but they do re-fill after about 10 minutes. Although there are various desserts, they all seem similar and after a few days you can get tired of it.
The hotel rooms are not noise proof and we were disturbed every night by noisy children in the corridor and noises from other rooms. The hotel room door had a large gap and didn't shut properly which contributed to the disturbances. There were 3 lifts but very slow. Luckily we were on the 1st floor with the stairs next door to our room. Our hotel room had plenty of closet space and was a good size. Would be great if the rooms can be re-furbished with new carpeting.
Wifi is free near the reception area but you have to pay to have it in your room. 2 Euros per hr, 5 Euros per day or 25 Euros for 7 days.
Overall it was a pleasant experience and we found Willingen to be a beautiful place!

Room Tip: Higher rooms better views, however you have to be patient for the lifts

Really an amazing hotel if you want to vacation as a family. The hotel and the town have a lot to offer for families. The hotel - multiple restaurants, a night club, bowling and arcade, massage and sauna. Great food. The town - skiing, mountain biking (some of the best in Deutschland) and nice restaurants. The only downsides - hotel rooms have no A/C - rarely a huge issue at this altitude. Hotel has three slow elevators and hundreds of rooms... However, the stairs are easy to find and somehow fit the healthy theme of the town. It is great for families - so don't go for that quiet intimate getaway.

Hotel is well situated close to skip slopes and transport. Most packages include meals which are pretty good food and host of activities offering within the hotel complex. Rooms get cleaned around lunch which ones needs to accommodate if you don't ski though, overall a very pleasant experience but I would go to Gastehaus/Pension next time rather

Don't go, if you do not like children (playing with elevators) or having breakfast and dinner with 500 other guests.

But if you like the nice comfortable and large rooms and off course the pistes (at walking distance) this is a great place to be. There is a great wellness centre and swimming pool near by.

A bit pity that wireless has not been included in the room fees (25 euro's for 7 days).

A great place for families with (young) children.
