This hotel has 500 rooms and is by far the biggest in Willingen. This volume shows most in the huge dining room where we had dinner. The mass atmosphere caused we finished dinner asap and fled back to our room. Also breakfast is a large volume exercise.
The room we had however was great. It was a corner room with separate bedroom and perfect for our family of four.
Especially when you buy a package deal with kids (partly) free, this hotel is good value.
One aspect that does improvement is the WIFI. Nowadays any proper hotel should make this free and with good acces. Here is was limitly free with very low speed: to be improved !

Stayed: February 2017, travelled with family

Went here with a large group of colleagues, It is quit ea big place over 500 rooms. They offer big dining restaurant with buffet and so on. Not really for us but if you are here with a large group it is quite convenient. They offer Disco, separate bar, bowling, fitness (other building, possible to access from inside during day, but not at 7:00AM). And other restaurants.

Shuttle bus service is available and free of charge.

Service is very good and staff very helpfull. Parking space enough and decent priced.

It was exciting having a late evening arrival on a day with more than average snowfall.
Entering the hotel was with a wouw feeling, multilanguage reception available (even in the Nederlandse language) and entering the room with a magnifique vieuw.
There is a lot of parking space, even if you have some luck, covered space. The hotel is an excellent conference hotel but also to spend holidays for ski sport, mountain bikers, langlauf , hicking...
The hotel is located outside the centre of Willingen but in the middle of different sportmodi: ski (worldchampion 2017 schans jump will take place in Willingen) indoor iceskating, indoor family swinning fun. All this faciliteit and also the conference room are reachable via tunnels, so in fact you don't have the leave the hotel.The hotel has own pool, sauna...
As we were there for a conference, the food was served in buffetvorm in the different big restaurant rooms. There is a separate Italian restaurant. The breakfast was very good. The lunch and dinner buffet was not excellent but anyhow for the volume that had to be prepared good quality. It remains a very big hotel, one of the biggest in Middle Germany, with a lot of possibilities.
Free internet is only available in the lobby area. Internet on the room cost 5 euro for 24 hours. This is a bit disappointing for such a nice and big hotel.
When the conference of ENERGETIX will be held in this hotel next year, we will for sure prolong our stay for some holidays.

Room Tip: Rooms atu the backside have vieuw on mountains, rooms in front vieuw on conference centre and some skipistes.

As an organisation, we have been using Sauerland Stern Hotel for our annual conference for the last 3/4 years. This is a huge hotel with amazing conference facilities. No matter how big or small your event or conference is this place can handle it and has the facilities.
Adjoining to the hotel is a local swimming pool which has indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools. Yes, outdoor heated swimming pool.
The surroundings to the hotel is green, peaceful, open and very scenic. If you like walking then you will love this place.

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious and good.

As a group of 18 family members we arrived to this hotel trying to have everybody happy. For such a group the main advantage is the "all-in" principle, however as a demanding hotel guest myself I could not consider this hotel to be awarded with four stars.

The rooms are decent and fine, however do not offer rooms with two queens size beds which would be ideal for a family of two adults and two young children. The rooms offer couches for children to sleep on, however there are very hard buttons on the couches and therefore my children did not want to sleep on them after the first night.

Again, as a demanding traveler, I tend to avoid all-inclusive type hotels with long buffets and everything, however the food on this buffet was rather present and of very acceptable quality and varieties. The biggest disappointment was by far the personnel (waiters) that really do not have a friendly face, a customer service attitude or training what so ever. In some cases they were even rude while attending for drinks.
