I am having a blast here, service is first class and staff is super nice. Breakfast during Covid pandemic does not include buffet, but they serve a big platter European style.

Great hotel, great service. Really cool rooms and well thought through concept. Quiet enough for a good night's sleep and great breakfast. Location is epic

Great experience; very friendly staff and high quality rooms. We upgraded to a Deluxe room and the 4th floor view was just great. Room was facing south-west so we had full sun on our balcony until it set. Due to Covid, dinner was served in a separate hotel room which something else for a change. True private dining, music, TV and all courses properly served at our doorstep. Perfect alternative to a restaurant- don’t think we’ll ever have that experience again so great memory! Recommend this place for sure.

Krickenbeck Castle

Krickenbeck moated castle is one of the oldest on the lower Rhine. Its history dates back to the year 1104, when the castle was first mentioned. It is unclear why the old castle, which was certainly inhabited by Count Reginar, was abandoned or destroyed. In the mid-13th century the castle was moved to the current location. At the end of the 14th century the new castle belonged to the Counts of Kleve.

Johann Friedrich II of Schesaberg converted the castle into a Baroque mansion between 1708-1721. On September 7, 1902, a fire destroyed the entire mansion. From 1903 to 1904, a three-winged castle was built in the Neo-Renaissance style. Today Krickenbeck is a conference center.
