Family Run Hotel
Spent a week here, the owners are very friendly, food excellent you had a choice of two main courses very nicely presented, Hotel by the River Rhine and you have magnificent view, I would definitely recommend this hotel. You can catch ferry boats here that take you up the River, down the road we had a wine tasting evening.

smoothly run hotel
My wife and I stayed for 9 nights with another married couple in this pleasant hotel, run by father and son. We paid a little extra for a 'Komfort-Plus' room with a view across the Rhine. The room was well-appointed and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was spacious and well-designed. Breakfast was outstanding.
As one of our group was vegetarian, we chose to eat in different restaurants in the village, and didn't have a single bad experience. On the two occasions we ate in our hotel, we weren't disappointed, either. People seemed to come from the surrounding area because of the hotel restaurant's reputation.
The railway lay behind our hotel and couldn't be heard from our room. The whole village was extremely quiet, save for the hum of barge traffic on the river, which was certainly not obtrusive.
Our hosts were most helpful and friendly and arranged a good discount for our trip on the Rhine. They showed interest in the progress we were making on the Rieslingpfad, a long distance footpath above the river.
Both father and son spoke good English, so I didn't really have the opportunity to use my German as much as I would have liked.
Assmannshausen itself is a sleepy place and can hardly boast a shop. There is a footpath beside the water and below the traffic on the through road, but no promenade such as one finds in other Rhineland towns.
It's difficult to find any fault with this hotel.

5 Days in Rhineland
We were greeted at reception by the owner and shown to our rooms. We had booked two Komfort Rooms with river views. The rooms, although very clean and tidy , were for Komfort rooms not very big, but had very good views of the river.
The food was good with an exceptional choice of dishes for buffet breakfast.
Overall a good if not spectacular hotel.

Having read many reviews about the Rheinhotel Lamm prior to travelling I had high expectations of this family run hotel coupled with some reservations about comments that other travellers had made. As there is quite a bit to cover off in terms of feedback , this may be a quite a long review.
Check in: Our party of travellers arrived at the hotel around 5pm where Marco Kesseler ( one of the owners of the hotel) boarded the coach briefly, advised when dinner would be served, then we all disembarked, were given our room keys and advised that our cases would be brought up to the rooms. The cases arrived at the rooms about ten minutes later. Impressed by the efficiency and speed of check in.
Hotel room: As my partner and I had never travelled to Germany before, we opted to upgrade our room to have a balcony with a view of the river. The upgrade cost 200 Euros for the 4 nights we were staying at the hotel but was well worth the money as the view from the first floor balcony was spectacular. As the hotel sits about 20 metres from the main road and river, the traffic noise was quite loud first thing in the morning but lovely and quiet and night except for the regular low frequency engine noise from the massive river barges that travel regularly up and down the river. There is a railway line to the rear of the hotel that is used for both passenger and freight. As its a really busy line ( apparently 240 trains a day use this) i would imagine that a rear facing room would be quite noisy. As we were facing the front of the hotel the noise from the railway wasn't an issue for us. The room itself was large with a Kingsize bed, a huge flat screen TV ( with only one English channel) and a lovely large bathroom with a huge corner bath and shower. Given that we had travelled to the hotel in mid October i wasn't expecting to be able to make use of the balcony. By a complete fluke the weather during our stay was fantastic with one day where the temperature hit 24 degrees centigrade during the day. Cooler at night but still pleasant enough to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by. If you are a non smoker, bear in mind that guests occasionally stand outside the hotel to smoke, If you happen to have your window open the smell of cigarette smoke coming into the room is appalling. Thankfully the wind blows the smell away really quickly.
The restaurant: It appears there is a two tier system for diners at this hotel. As we travelled as part of a half board deal, our coach group were all seated in the restaurant to the right of the reception as you enter the hotel. There is another room to the left where other diners would sit who were buying food from the a la carte menu.
Breakfast: Breakfast is self service buffet style with a selection fruit juice, cold meats, cheeses, cereal, streaky bacon as well as boiled and scrambled eggs. In reception there is a selection of breads, rolls, jams, butter and margarine. Given that our coach party filled the restaurant the fact that there were only two toasters in reception made for a long wait of you wanted toast with breakfast. The food although basic was ok for a bunch of hungry travellers to get set up for the day.
Evening meal: For me this is where the wheels well and truly fell of the cart. Your main course is ordered after breakfast by ticking a box on a piece of paper on your table. Starter every day was a creamed soup, followed by a main course of chicken or pork with a cream sauce and finished off with a dessert with ( you guessed it) cream! Each table of four is allocated a tiny bowl of veg to share. Thought this was a bit miserly as vegetables are the cheapest part of the dinner. The oddest part of this set up is that during the course of the meal, a member of staff comes round the tables with the leftovers from the kitchen to ask if you want more meat and veg! I've travelled quite a bit over the years but never been offered leftovers from the kitchen during dinner service ! The food itself wasn't the best quality as the pork was a bit tough and overcooked, the chicken was dry and on one night we had what was supposed to be Catfish. What we got was a piece of bland white fish fried in crumb. On our last night, the owner arranges a BBQ where the chef cooks pork, sausages and chicken kebabs on the pavement outside the hotel. Not sure how long the chef has been employed at the hotel, but the BBQ'd pork was undercooked, tough and pink, the sausages were cooked cold and tasteless and the chicken kebabs of which there wasn't many were small, tasteless and tepid in temperature. As a hotel resident, you come to expect a certain standard in food. By evening meal standards the whole experience was really poor.
The other downside for our party was that there was no bar area in the hotel. As a result we had to find a corner in the a la carte restaurant to sit after dinner to have a few drinks. Not the sort of thing you want on holiday when all you want to do is sit around with your friends for a few drinks and a chat. On our second night at the hotel we wandered around the corner and found a small hotel with a lovely bar on Niederwaldstraße to sit and enjoy some beers and wine.
There is one thing that really angered me about staying at this hotel which has severely impacted my views on this place. On one of the nights my partner and i left the bar on Niederwaldstraße about 10:30 pm to make the 5 minute walk back to the hotel. When we got the the hotel door it was locked but the reception was lit up. We rang the bell and the owner Marco appeared in reception, scowled at us as he opened the door, didnt reply when i wished him goodnight a then promptly disappeared behind reception. I mentioned to my partner that i thought his behaviour was a bit odd but put it down to him having a long day. My partner and i then returned to the room and put the lights out to go to sleep just before 11pm. What happens next beggars belief.
My partner and i were awoken at 11:30pm with shouts from the street just below our first floor balcony. When i went out on to the balcony, there were seven hotel guests in the street who advised that they had been ringing the door bell to get back into the hotel but no one was answering. I got dressed, went downstairs to go through reception only to find that the door into the reception area was locked. I went back upstairs to go to my balcony to advise the hotel guests to go to the rear of the hotel where i would let them in via the fire escape door. In the 21st century it beggars belief that there was no staff in the hotel to open the main door. The following morning, i did some digging to find out why they couldn't get in after hours. it transpired that the key fob on the room keys has to be used to open the fire escape door after the main doors have been locked. In retrospect it makes sense but doesn't make any sense if you haven't been told what to do after hours and there are no signs or notices on the front door to advise guests too use their key fob after hours!
In summary, would i recommend this hotel? Hadn't have been for the fiasco of being woken to let other guests into the hotel, then in all probability i would have. Given that there was no briefing at check in or notices to advise on after hours access policy or any staff on duty, then the safety of guests staying at this hotel concerns me. I intend to raise my concerns with the travel company we booked with to ensure that they are aware of this as a serious issue.

Great place to stay
This was quite a find. Our room had a balcony and a fabulous river view which was amazing to wake up to. It was very well equipped, beautifully clean and comfortable, with adjustable beds - great for being propped up reading, 'proper' coffee maker, and a large light bathroom with a powerful shower and a hairdryer with some 'oomph' (unusual in most hotels we've been in!). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The restaurant was very good for both breakfast and dinner, and the service at dinner was lovely.
We very much appreciated the advice we received about trips and walks. Not knowing the area we would probably not in the couple of days we were there have found the cable car and subsequent walk to the Germania monument and cable car and boat ride back and would thus have missed a most enjoyable day out with some superb views on the way.
Everyone at the hotel was very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Just a tiny word of warning: the hotel is situated by a busy road at the front and a busy railway line at the rear. Fresh air fanatics might find it a tad noisy at night with a window open - but there are both shutters and air conditioning.
We cannot wait to return in the Spring.
