Review of Hotel Traube Tonbach, Baiersbronn

Very nice rural location, fantastic service, good infrastructure

This much recommended hotel is nicely situated at the end of an idyllic valley in the Black Forest. It has about 170 rooms, 5 restaurants and all the equipment you would expect from a five star house.

As far as wellness is concerned there are several pools (indoor and outdoor), a wide variety of saunas, extensive sun terraces and a well-equipped fitness room. For your leisure an activity programme with a large selection is offered (gymnastics, cycling, hiking, excursions, cookery courses etc.).


As we are a family of three (with a teenage son) we opted for a junior suite and were very satisfied with the offered accommodation (two separated large rooms, a spacious bathroom, a second small bathroom for our son and a nice terrace) although it was not renovated recently but well kept and very clean. 

The service at the Traube was outstanding, perfect throughout the whole hotel. During dinner in the half-board restaurant (Silberberg) the junior and the senior director went from table to table and talked to all the guests, very nice … 

Apropos dinner you have the choice out of 4 restaurants: apart from the mentioned Silberberg (22 € for a seven course candle light dinner including a Sherry to begin and a Marillen liquor to end!) there is Köhlerstube and Bauernstube (both 16 points Gault Millau) that we did not visit and Schwarzwaldstube (19.5 points Gault Millau) where we had the chance of getting a table (you have to make reservations several months in advance …). That was a highlight! We did not only relish the food but also the immaculate service (not stiff, but very pleasant). There were about 11 tables in the restaurant and at least as many waiters, what an experience!

Surely not the last time we visited this jewel of hotel!

Date of stay: July 2010
