Lovely short break getaway for the Christmas Market

5 of 5
£25 taxi from airport. A lovely place to stay. Very pretty. Very clean with everything you need. Beautiful coffee and cake shop a minute walk away at the top of the street which saved our life in the snow! A shop that sells alcohol and supermarket also 5min walk. 10 min walk to tube and 10 mins into dortmund. Owners very friendly. And very helpful. Would love to stay again.

Eine liebevoll geführte Ferienwohnung

5 of 5
Wir waren mit 6 Freundinnen zu Gast in den Sauerlandstuben und haben jede Minute genossen. Die Vermieter sind sehr zuvorkommend und uns blieb kein Wunsch offen. Das Essen im Restaurant des Hauses ist ein absolutes Muss! Sehr leckere und frische Küche. Auf der Speisekarte findet wirklich jeder etwas - vom Veganer bis zum Steakliebhaber. Auch das Frühstück ist absolut zu empfehlen. In der Wohnung konnten wir uns Dank der vielen Zimmer wie zu Hause fühlen, hatten Gemeinschaftsräume, wo wir zu sechst bequem verweilen konnten. Trotzdem hatte jeder seine Rückzugsmöglichkeit. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Apotheke und Freizeitangebote sind in wenigen Fahrminuten zu erreichen. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und werden wieder buchen!
