We stayed at this hotel over Christmas on a package of dinner, bed and breakfast, for five nights in order to visit family in the area. Our room was in the 'comfort' range and was absolutely beautiful, overlooking the monastery courtyard, more like a junior suite, with old timber upright beams separating a small seating area from the sleeping area which had a big wooden bed with carved headboard and very comfortable matresses. The shower room was small but adequate. We did not check out the other rooms.

The public rooms are impressive and interesting and particularly charming with tasteful decorations at Christmas time.The little church which forms part of the monastery was beautifully decorated for a Christmas Eve service, which we attended.

The monastery is part of what used to be a self-contained community surrounded by a wall and utterly charming, with another inn/restaurant, bakery, distillery, salmon fishery etc, all well maintained and interesting. The surrounding area is lovely for long (and easy) walks (I believe bicycles can also be hired) and the hotel's proximity to the Harz mountains and the historical town of Goslar make it an ideal base for exploring. A car would be useful for this, although walking (or taxi) into the small town of Vienenburg with bus connections and a railway station is possible, but probably more attractive in the summer rather than in winter.

The buffet breakfasts were fantastic with a huge choice of cold and hot foods. The evening meals were buffet style on 3 out of 5 days over Christmas, with three choices of main course and several for the other courses. We have no experience of a la carte dining at this hotel. There is a nicely appointed cocktail bar for use after dinner.

In summary: The Klosterhotel is a beautiful and interesting venue, good walking close by and well placed for exploration further afield. A wet winter may not be the best time to be there, but Spring/Summer/Autumn must be lovely, also for those looking for peace and quiet, as the crowds tend to go to the nearby Harz mountains.

Service was friendly and 3-star plus as the hotel claims but not 5-star as the surroundings might suggest. There is no identifiable lounge for guests to have drinks or coffee and possibly interact with each other, although there is a beautiful library with large sofas and several areas to sit and relax, but not a 'drawing together area'. Also an indoor smoking area would be helpful rather than people standing in the rain and spoiling the good looks of the place with soggy ashtrays.

Despite those little niggles, we found our stay at the Klosterhotel at Christmas a bit special and shall cherish the memory and for that it deserves top marks. We look forward to one day visit in the summer or autumn.

Old monastery, beautifully renovated. Respect for old style and religious symbols. Interesting garden with herbs and spices and nice courtyard. Breakfast top delicious. Long corridors where you let little lost.

We wandered across this hotel in our travels! Really wonderful, old structure, cool ambience, and great staff! But, BEWARE! The Classic Room is not good! My boyfriend doesn't even fit in the shower or the bed, and the beds are metal beds, with no support! Seriously, this would be a great place to stay if they just updated the beds!

European Travel Magazine stayed 3 nights at Kloster Hotel Woltingerode when we visited the Harz in the summer of 2011.
The hotel is reached easily, only 1/2 hour drive from the E45.
The buildings and rooms are renovated without loosing the cloister charm.
The breakfast ist absolutely delicious with an abundance to choose from - the perfect start to a day full of hiking, biking or adventuring.
There´s free wifi an request, a free guide to the destillery, where you can sample some of the many schnapps, which are brewed on old recipies and a lovely, sheltered park.
Situated in the north of the Harz, it avoids much of the rain that falls further south with all the important sites easily reachable.
