One week a good friend of mine and I decided to go on a wellness weekend together with our 2 kids. On our look through the internet we ended up with the family hotel Schreinerhof in the Bavarian forest. It seemed to be the right mix of what they offered for the price we had to pay. One main thing we were looking for was babysitting and they offered it.
So we drove the 2 hours from Munich by car with our kids in the back having their lunch time nap. Finally we ended up at the hotel that is lying nicely at the countryside and we were positively surprised. The hotel itself has a charm of a bit of a countryside style but not too much of it and also colorful but the same way not too colorful. It is simply a nice mix for families.
From the big parking you come straight away to the entrance hall with the first play corner already for the kids. We had the “family apartment Superior – 2 room” which was pretty big and even had an own sleeping room for the children. In there was 1 single bed, a loft and on top 2 baby beds. The baby beds were added because of our kids, so the other beds were actually empty. A separate toilet, walk in cupboard and a bathroom with a walk in shower made it really perfect.
Other than that you have got almost all day long the possibility for child care (the staff is really kind), a beer garden in summer time, a good choice of food buffet and an extra child buffet. Coffee and cake in the afternoon, food, wine, beer and all nonalcoholic drinks are completely included. In the backyard you find a huge sandpit with a tree house, slides and swings. When you follow the trails from there you will find a bobby car race track, several other small playgrounds and the best: a tiny farm. You can come really close to ponies, rabbits, cows, pigs and chickens. They even have small brushes and wheelbarrows for children!!! In the evenings you have the chance to have a drink by the bar and watch the children from far with a baby phone which is also provided from the hotel. That means while nap time you still are able to use the facilities.
The highlight for the kids of course is the swimming pool with a special part for babies and an outdoor part. If you want to go for a walk you can even hire a pram from the hotel and simply walk on to the woods – no need to bring your own when the car is too full. And I don´t want to forget to mention the indoor playground with different areas for babies, toddlers and also taller children. It was really great fun for C.
I have to admit we hardly had time to use all of their offers properly. Our weekend simply passed by far too quick. The thing is you have so much different possibilities what to do next that time simply flies by. We even didn´t have the chance to enjoy some massage or sauna. Next time then…
Our result: We will go there again for sure. Of course you cannot compare it with a high class design wellness hotel but it was just perfectly made for families. When your children are loud and don´t want to sit still while dinner – nobody really cares as they all know how life is with children. By the way you even find corners with toys at the dining area. We like.
