I choose the location as a base for exploring the Sauerland region by motorbike. For the motorbike I was offered parking in the owners garage free of charge.
The room was very comfortable and kitted out with meticulous attention to detail. I loved the ingenious shower doors which fold completely out of the way, giving full and unrestricted access to the shower cabin. The bed was also very comfortable.
The restaurant was surprisingly good and I was offered the choice of either "a la carte" food selection or half board.
The free WiFi achieved a throughput of more than 0.3 MB per second, which for this remote location and the general situation of rural Germany being digitally on the dark side of the moon was another very positive surprise.
While the very friendly owners (who speak fluent English and Dutch) cater mainly for hikers and mountain bikers, there was also a booklet available with recommendable motorbike tours of the local area.
The building is located directly on the road from Ramsbeck to Obervalme. The road is not very busy, but as few vehicles adhere to the 30 mph speed limit, you may prefer a room facing away from the road. Opposite the building there is ample free parking available for any size of vehicle.
The location in the centre of the Sauerland is ideal for exploits on a motorbike, and given the good food, the friendly welcome and the great value for money I am certainly going to stay there again on my next visit to the area.
