Why we love it...

Attractive town hotel

The Place

Most visitors to the town of Cochem, on the Mosel, probably photograph this old inn (daing from the 14th century) before they do anything else – the Alte Thorschenke is right in front of you as you leave the main car parking area. Its façade is picture-postcard stuff, with pretty gables and towers, and to one side part of the old wall which used to surround the medieval town.
The interior has the atmosphere and lived-in feel of a truly old building. If you have been lucky enough to secure a bedroom in the front part of the hotel (there are only a few) you will climb a wonderful, Gothic wooden spiral staircase from the club-like reception-cum-sitting area and proceed along creaking corridors to such delights as the Napoleon suite – a lovely spacious room furnished with an enormous four-poster bed and other antiques. There are more bedrooms in the rear part of the hotel – newer and generally less interesting, but with antiques, although a recent visitor felt they needed some refurbishment.
In the high-ceilinged dining room, a varied manu is presented on parchment style paper, with lots of regional fish and game dishes and home-grown Mosel. Breakfast is an impressive buffet.
