Dorint Hotel & Sportresort Winterberg/Sauerland is a top notch four star hotel located in the gorgeous Sauerland area in Germany. From what I had seen on pictures, this hotel is a jewel and it truly is…
You can’t beat the location. The surrounding areas are just gorgeous. I fell in love with the region the hotel is located in. It is oh so peaceful. Winterberg is just a short drive from the hotel which is an excellent town for sightseeing and skiing. Right next to the hotel is a ski lift which will take you to Kahler Asten, a small ski area. Very convenient! Also, make sure to explore Rothaargebirge, a stunning nature park located near Dorint Hotel & Sportresort Winterberg/Sauerland.
The hotel itself is very stylish and cozy decorated. We were welcomed by the most friendly front desk staff. This is German hospitality and we love it! The lobby area is very nice and make you feel at home in seconds. The authentic atmosphere throughout the hotel is impressive and much appreciated. Although the hotel has been built several years ago, they almost completely renovated the hotel in 2017. It now is an up to date four star hotel with excellent facilities and the most comfortable rooms. It is impressive that being a hotel with 121 rooms, they are still able to provide a personal approach. Very impressive! Dorint Hotel & Sportresort Winterberg/Sauerland also has several apartments which can accommodate up to 5 adults.
The Comfort room we stayed in was absolutely stunning! What a great and cozy room this was! The wooden floors and ceilings add extra coziness. The room had all the facilities I expect from a four star hotel such as the Nespresso coffee machine, a very comfortable bed and the best feature: a cozy sitting area with the most comfortable chairs to relax. Do note that each room is also equipped with a tablet which I found very convenient. I used it a lot during my stay for browsing the web, checking the weather, etc. The balcony with a lovely view was a bonus!
Bathroom was spacious and featured a great walk-in shower. Fluffy bathrobes and towels are available as well.
Another highlight is the spa area. Located on the lower floor, this place is perfect for unwinding and relaxing after a day on the ski slopes. The modernized indoor swimming pool is gorgeous and pretty large! Next to the swimming pool is another area for relaxing with a steam room, traditional and infra red sauna. There are also many relaxation areas for chilling. The entire place was very well maintained and it was never too crowded.
There are several dining options at Dorint Hotel & Sportresort Winterberg/Sauerland such as Restaurant Fürst Richard which serves international dishes. Small dishes are available at the bar.
After a wonderful night in our romantic room, we were ready for breakfast. Having breakfast at Château St. Gerlach is something to look forward to! The buffet is very large and the overall quality of the food is outstanding. Salmon, fresh fruit, etc. It is all there.
I was very impressed with Dorint Hotel & Sportresort Winterberg/Sauerland and highly recommend staying there for a sporty getaway. There’s so much to do and I’m sure that during summer season you won’t get bored here either. I will be back for sure!
