Friedrichsruh is a good hotel, newly renovated. The beach is 30 meters from the hotel and Niendorf and Timmendorfter Strand is a perfect area for children and families or older couples. Rent a bike and you easily get around and experience the beautiful location.
The staff is service minded and nice.
The cleaning is good and the rooms are large and renovated 2013.
The Friedrichsruh restaurant is ok. Avoid the half-pension which is a bit uninspired and low-budget.
All in all Friedrichsruh is a safe choice in Timmendorf considering the fair rates.
For the moment - 2013 - a new hotel is beeing constructed next door, so you will have to live with some noise during working hours.More
