The hotel and restaurant at Gutshaus Stolpe
Gutshaus Stolpe is located in the heart of a listed estate dating back to the 19th century, surrounded by a beautiful park which is dotted with ancient trees. The River Peene, which flows into the nearby Baltic Sea, runs along the boundaries of the spacious, privately owned grounds.
Gutshaus Stolpe was repurchased in 1994 by Kurt Stürken, whose parents had been the estate owners up to 1945, and in doing so he also acquired 150 hectares of lush meadows and woodland. Over a period of two years, the entire property was lovingly renovated, restored and converted into a hotel and restaurant. However, what really makes Gutshaus Stolpe special is the concept behind the restoration. We have drawn inspiration from the countless small country inns which are so abundant in the UK and France. The hotelier is more of a friendly host than a profit-minded service provider.
The property invites guests to relax. Besides its guest rooms, there are many other areas where people can unwind by enjoying a glass of wine or a cup of tea, reading a book or simply chatting to other guests. On the ground floor of the Gutshaus, you will find not only the restaurant and our large, inviting terrace with a view over the grounds, but also a wood-panelled bar with library, an elegant lounge, a spacious entrance hall with a cosy inglenook fireplace and a conservatory with a traditional tiled stove. Even over a longer stay, Gutshaus Stolpe offers you plenty of opportunities to gain a new perspective on things.
Furthermore, there are plenty of opportunities for the active guest in the hotel grounds, such as tennis, water sports, hunting, a sauna, gym, horse riding, and cycling. There is an 18-hole golf course only 30 kilometres away in Balm on the island of Usedom.
The 33 rooms, of which six are suites, are all different and for the most part are furnished with antiques. Guests have a choice between rooms in the main building that evoke a 19th century atmosphere or, alternatively, those found in the coach house which have more of a Mediterranean flair.
Furnishing the rooms required trips throughout Germany and further afield over a period of several months. The beds and some of the furniture were brought over from England, and most of the lamps and fabrics came from France. The interior decor was made in Sweden; the cotto tile flooring comes from Spain and the fireplace from Italy.
Every effort was made to avoid the run-of-the-mill fittings to be found in most international hotels and to ensure the utmost in comfort.
Gutshaus Stolpe offers many things that are often hard to come by in the German hotel industry: a private, refined and sophisticated atmosphere, plenty of charm, appeal and outstanding cuisine. The admittance of our hotel into the Relais et Chateaux hotel association is confirmation of our achievements and acts as an incentive for the future for both us and our colleagues.
Only a couple of hundred metres from the Gutshaus, where Dorfstrasse meets the River Peene, the Stolper Fahrkrug has stood for over 300 years and also belongs to the Gutshaus Stolper.
