location : click here
run by Andre(geordie lad) and his wife Marie(German lady with good english)
he has dorms and/or single and/or double rooms
suitable for individuals,couples and LARGE groups good.gif
The accommodation is great, just like a home away from home, much more friendly than a guest house
with a workshop for any bits you need to do and a play room (pool table, darts, beers etc) out the back.
Breakfast is great with plenty of options to cater for all tastes
The roads around the area are great, wish i'd had more time to explore.
apparently only an hour from the Nurburg ring too.

He probably needs more marketing, or a more interactive interface. Haven't talked to the maker in years (scottsman active on advrider.com), perhaps he needs a new impulse. If updated this site would be perfect...

Apart from that, this site looks OK for holidays in Germany, http://www.tourenhot...eutschland.html.
Seems to be all in German, but you get the general idea. Have never tried any of them, as usually go to France, however, I can translate bits if anyone interested,

If anyone is thinking of going over to France, I'm just back from a weekend break at the above in Brittany. The owners are long-term bikers and though it was early season and the weather was mixed, the roads are just fabulous - loads of long straights through the forests and lovely twisties. The B&B is clean, well equipped and of course, the most important, under cover parking for your pride and joy. Food was also good and plentiful with a good supply of beer and wine. Ken, one of the owners, conducted the ride outs on his 800cc Bonneville and tailors the routes to suit the group.
And before anyone asks, no, Ken isn't my cousin and he didn't slip me a fiver for the write-up, though now that I think of it, must ask for a discount next time.
Finally, I went on LD Lines Portsmouth to Le Havre. Was cheap as chips though you do have a 200 mile trip at the other end. Portsmouth - St Malo gives you a one hour trip in France but is more expensive. I arrived at 8am so had all day to to get there. Even if you take the Peage (toll road), it only costs EUR 2.60.
