Very handy stop over for us when travelling through Germany. Picked Gasthof Kern at random when pulling off motorway and weren't disappointed.

Good food in the restaurant, with a good...

Traditional Hessian restaurant with a wonderful menu and excellent food. Cozy and well appointed with rustic decor. This is a place in which you'll immediately feel at home. Service is excellent and the staff is very nice.

Stayed here for 4 nights whilst visiting friends in the region. The Kern is in a good spot to explore the surrounding areas such as the lovely Idstein and Limburger. The hotel is traditional and offers basic but quite satisfactory accommodation. The hotel has a good restaurant serving local cuisine. I would happily return here when next in the area.
