Are children and babies really not allowed? Why?

Yes, children and babies are not allowed in our hotel, as we specialize in rest and relaxation for adults. Our hotel offers ideal conditions for guests over the age of 16.

There are a large number of diverse hotels that specialize in children and families and thus perfectly meet their needs for playing, letting off steam, animation and entertainment.

With us you will find ideal conditions to spend time as a couple or with friends and girlfriends. You can be sure that your children are well looked after and in good hands, whether with grandparents or with a parent at home.

Are there any opening hours that need to be observed?

Reception: Daily from 08:00 to 21:00.

Breakfast buffet: Daily from 08:00 to 11:30.

Terrace: In good weather, you can also have breakfast on our terrace. It is open all day until 22:00, after which it is closed out of consideration for the rooms above. We do not accept table reservations for the terrace area.

Snack menu for lunch: Daily between 10:00 am and 9:30 pm (until 8:30 pm on Sundays).

How can I change/cancel my booking? Are there any costs involved?

Your booking cannot be changed directly, but must be canceled. Cancellations require written notification, preferably by e-mail to mail@hotel-diedrich.de. Please refer to your reservation confirmation to find out whether costs will be incurred. Our cancellation conditions can be found at hotel-diedrich.de/reservationsbedingungen.

Rebooking / postponing
It is not possible to rebook or postpone bookings, as we reserve the booked room category for you for the booked travel period and at the conditions applicable at the time of booking. If you wish to change the travel period, the existing reservation must be canceled in accordance with the accepted cancellation conditions and a new reservation must be made. We cannot guarantee that you will receive the room at the same price. The price may even be lower in the new travel period, depending on the occupancy and demand of the hotel.

Should I take out travel cancellation insurance?

Yes, we strongly recommend that you take out travel cancellation insurance. You can find further information on this at hotel-diedrich.de/reservationsconditions.

Are there double rooms with separate beds?

No, we do not offer double rooms with separate beds in our hotel. If required, we recommend booking two single rooms or two double rooms for single use.

Can I bring my dog with me?

Pets are not allowed in our hotel in order to ensure an allergy-friendly environment and peace and quiet in the wellness area. We ask for your understanding.

We have a great dog ourselves in the owner's family and have therefore made this decision very consciously. There are two main reasons for this: firstly, a wellness vacation is primarily about doing something good for yourself and having as much time for yourself as possible. If you are traveling with a pet, you have to adapt your daily schedule to the needs of the animal, which goes against our understanding of a wellness vacation. Secondly, we want to keep our house as allergy-friendly as possible. Animal hair can cause immediate discomfort for people with respiratory allergies.

When can I arrive and move into the room?

Check-in is possible daily between 15:00 and 21:00. Your room is ready for occupancy from 15:00. Early arrivals can use the SPA area from 12:30.

If you would like to enjoy our offer even earlier, you can book our "Breakfast on the day of arrival with early SPA use". For €35 per person, you can have breakfast and use the SPA area from 8:00 am. We would like to give you a perfect start to your stay with us.

Another offer is our "Early room check-in including breakfast". If you would like to use your room from the morning on the day of arrival, we are happy to offer you our "Early room check-in including breakfast", subject to availability. You can arrive at 08:00, have breakfast in peace and quiet and check into your room straight away. We charge €50 per person for this service. We look forward to making your arrival a pleasant one with our early check-in - however, this offer is only available at short notice, at the earliest two days before arrival on request.

Is it possible to check in late at night or even at night?

Yes, late check-in or late arrival is possible. If you arrive after 21:00, please inform us in advance so that we can deposit your room key in a key safe.

Is there wifi in the hotel?

Yes, we offer comprehensive WLAN in the hotel. Connect to the "germanhotspot - Hotel Diedrich" network to access the internet.

I have booked additional treatments. When will I receive the exact dates/times?

Our treatment rooms and SPA therapists are well booked, so we will take care of scheduling the booked treatments for you. You will receive the exact times shortly after check-in at the hotel reception. If you have any requests regarding the times, please feel free to let us know and we will try to accommodate them. However, please understand that we cannot always fulfill all wishes. We kindly ask for your understanding!

I may want to book another treatment. What is the best way to do that?

Please book additional applications early and in writing by email to ensure availability. Post-arrival requests may not be able to be fulfilled, so we recommend early planning.

Can I also use the SPA area on the day of departure? Is there perhaps also the possibility to use the room longer than 11:00 on the day of departure?

Yes, it is possible to use the SPA area on the day of departure.

SPA late check-out: If you would also like to use the SPA area on the day of departure, you have the option of booking a SPA late check-out for a surcharge of €25 per person. There are changing rooms and lockers in the SPA area that offer sufficient storage space.

Room late check-out: If available, you can even book a room late check-out until 21:00. We charge € 90.00 per room for this service.

I have booked half board and would like to eat according to the à la carte menu. Is that possible?

Yes, you can also eat à la carte instead of half board. Please inform reception of your request by 11:30 am at the latest.

I am allergic to certain foods, do I get appropriate dishes?

We are happy to take your allergies or intolerances into consideration. It is important that you let us know in good time, as the kitchen team prepares the daily evening menu with the utmost care and planning. It is cooked fresh and without additives every day. If you only express your wishes at the table in the evening, we ask for your understanding that we can only react to a limited extent.

Is the hotel barrier-free or suitable for wheelchair users?

Our hotel is barrier-free or suitable for wheelchair users, with a few exceptions. We have been paying attention to accessibility in our structural planning for many years. However, due to our hillside location and the slow growth of our hotel, a few rooms are not accessible barrier-free. The main entrance is not barrier-free, but you can reach the reception barrier-free via the side entrance on the left side of the main entrance and an elevator. From here you can reach all our guest rooms, including barrier-free rooms. The SPA area, the bistro, the treatment rooms, the indoor pool and the sauna area are barrier-free accessible. However, the fitness and course level as well as the rest area "Zeitlos" are not accessible barrier-free. The entrance to the indoor pool consists of tiled steps and a handrail. The outdoor pool is also accessible without barriers, but it has a vertical ladder entrance integrated into the exterior wall. All catering areas as well as the terrace are barrier-free accessible, with the exception of the restaurant "Antons".

Friends would like to visit me or us during our stay. Can we all have breakfast or dinner together at the hotel?

Of course, your friends can join you for breakfast or dinner - provided we have enough space. 🙂
The best thing to do in such a case is to send a short request to mail@hotel-diedrich.de.

Where exactly is the hotel located and what is the environment like?

Our hotel is located in the heart of the small half-timbered town of Hallenberg, directly on the border between North Rhine-Westphalia and Hesse in the Hochsauerland. Surrounded by picturesque countryside and lots of green nature, our location offers numerous leisure opportunities and activities. In only 15 minutes by car you can reach the vacation world Winterberg, where further attractions and possibilities are waiting for you. Our location is not only ideal for a wellness break, but also for varied vacations in the Sauerland, in the middle of Germany.

You can find out more here at hotel-diedrich.de/approach.

Where can I park? Is a parking reservation necessary?

You can park free of charge directly at the hotel in our own parking lots. A reservation is not necessary as there are plenty of parking spaces available. You can easily load and unload directly in front of the hotel entrance.

Can I charge my electric car at the hotel?

Yes, you can charge your electric car at the hotel. We have six in-house electric charging stations in the parking lot to the side of the hotel entrance. Billing is fully automatic and based on consumption via your room bill. We currently charge 0.65 euros per kilowatt hour (kWh), according to consumption.

What is the accessibility by public transport (bus and train)?

The nearest train stations are in Winterberg (NRW from all directions), Frankenberg (Hesse from Kassel) and Münchhausen (Hesse from Marburg). From there, we will be happy to organize pick-up for you by a local cab company (for a fee) upon request. The nearest airports are: Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport (75 km), Kassel Calden Airport (85 km), Dortmund Airport (110 km), Frankfurt Airport (145 km), Cologne-Bonn Airport (150 km) and Düsseldorf Airport (180 km).

Can I also hire bicycles?

Yes, you can also hire bikes. We offer e-bikes for hire. The rental price is € 29 per tour; mountain bikes without a motor € 19 per tour. Please book in good time, at least one day in advance - thank you very much!

Can I safely park my own bike at the hotel?

Yes, we will be happy to store your own bike in a locked room on request

We would like to spend a quiet JGA / bachelor party with you. Is that possible?

With us, unfortunately, it is not possible to celebrate a bachelor party. We understand that a JGA should be a very special day, where the bachelor or bachelorette is given a proper send-off. However, due to the hotel structure and our consideration for the other guests, it is not possible for us to organize such a celebration in an appropriate manner. In the evening, people usually want to sit together, socialize and celebrate until late at night. Unfortunately, this is not possible at our hotel due to the closing times of the hotel bar and it may also disturb other guests in the neighboring rooms. We therefore ask for your understanding that we have to decline JGA requests.

Do you offer Day SPA? So could one spend a dayspa day in your SPA?

Yes, we also offer Day SPA for day guests, but capacities are limited. We ask for your understanding that we may not be able to offer a Day SPA on busy days, especially at weekends. We therefore recommend a day spa break on weekdays from Monday to Friday.

You can find out more here at hotel-diedrich.de/wellnesstag-sauerland

Where can I find the course schedule?

Do you offer yoga? Are there special yoga weekends?

Yes, we offer daily yoga sessions. Due to our daily course offerings, we do not have any special yoga weekends in our program. As our courses are included in the room rate, almost every weekend is a yoga weekend. You can find the course schedule at hotel-diedrich.de/kursplan.

Can I purchase a voucher from you? Preferably for something special.

You are very welcome to receive a voucher from us. You can do this easily and immediately at hotel-diedrich.de/gutscheine; here you can choose an amount, design your voucher and receive it directly when paying via PayPal.
