The Ring Inn
The Ring Inn is a unique and charming place to stay located in the heart of the Eifel, just a stone's throw away from the world-famous Nürburgring racetrack. The property consists of a barn built in 1890, a main house that was built in two stages (early 1910’s and then extended in the 1950’s), and a large parking area. Francisco purchased the property in October of 2017 and has been renovating it ever since. Currently, there are three apartments available for guests, with plans to add two more in the future. They have also just been awarded a 9.6 on Booking.com's traveller review awards 2023
One of the standout features of The Ring Inn is the wide range of amenities offered to guests. All of the apartments are fully furnished and equipped, making them perfect for long-term stays. Each apartment comes with a fully equipped kitchen and living area, as well as a decent-sized TV and fast Wifi internet access. Guests also have access to a shared washer and dryer in the basement of the building, as well as a shared sitting area outside for car spotting and relaxing. The property also boasts a large private parking area that can accommodate up to 18 cars. The Ring Inn is also pet-friendly, and the Francisco is happy to help guests with any repairs or maintenance on their vehicles.
Another unique aspect of The Ring Inn is the character and individuality of each apartment. Francisco has tried to keep as much of the character of the old house as possible, while also modernizing and updating it. Each apartment has its own individual character, making them feel more like homes than featureless hotel rooms.
Pricing for rooms at The Ring Inn varies depending on the time of year and any events happening in the area. However, The Ring Inn strives to offer affordable and fair prices that are competitive with other high-quality offerings in the area. The staff and customer service at The Ring Inn are also exceptional, Francisco lives at the property himself and is happy to help guests with any information or assistance they need.
The Ring Inn offers a variety of room options to suit different types of travellers. There is a studio apartment with one double bed that is perfect for a single traveller or a couple, a one-bedroom apartment that sleeps up to four people that is great for families or close friends, and a very versatile apartment with one double bedroom and one single bedroom, plus a sofa-bed in the living room, that is ideal for small groups. While it's possible to accommodate large groups by booking multiple apartments, the property is best suited for smaller groups who appreciate the peace and quiet of the Eifel Forest.
One of the things that sets The Ring Inn apart from other accommodations in the area is its location. The property is close to everything, including the Nürburgring race track, the best restaurants in Adenau, and a variety of outdoor activities. Guests can enjoy stunning views of the forest and Nurburg Castle, and the property is within walking distance of the Breidscheid viewing area. Petrol stations and supermarkets are also less than a kilometre away, and the TF carpark entrance is just a five-minute drive away.
The Ring Inn has also had its share of notable guests over the years, including racing driver David Pittard, Adam Christodoulou's family, and Laura Luft, a driver, sim-racer, commentator, and F1 Paddock Club host. Additionally, the property offers longer-term parking and exterior car storage, as well as limited space for car parts, tires, and general storage.
Aside from the Nordschleife, there are plenty of nearby attractions and activities for guests to enjoy. The GP track is a popular destination for motorsports enthusiasts, and the Eifel forest offers plenty of opportunities for hiking and outdoor activities.
