Spacious, light rooms decorated in warm shades of ocher, chic bathrooms, and an inviting lounge and terrace make for comfortable, relaxing quarters here. Quiet elegance and Mediterranean influences mark this centrally located inn; it's convenient to the sights of Nierstein and the surrounding Rhinehessen vineyards. The restaurant Am Heyl'schen Garten ($$) serves barbecue on the terrace as well as well-prepared regional specialties and dishes with an Asian touch. Sunday lunch is a generous family buffet ($$$). The staff is exceptionally cheerful and competent.
