Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Daun Castrop-Rauxel
I was very disappointed in this resort. From what I saw online it appeared to be much nicer. We had an alcove room and the alcove was very small. 2 twin beds fit in the room against each wall with barely enough room to squeeze into the room. The hotel was built in 1995 (according to the writing in the concrete in front of the office) and it does not appear any updating has been done since. The room was clean but very drab. The furniture was somewhat beat up. The interior doors needed painting. We spent about the same amount of money at each of the hotels we stayed at all week (and in some cases less). This was by far the worst.
We stayed at the Fox Ridge Resort last week and found the hotel to be a comfortable, friendly, and clean hotel. The indoor and outdoor pools were clean and outstandingly refreshing. The staff at the front desk, the housekeepers, and the maintenance men, were all very pleasant and helpful. We will absolutely be staying there again.
Big Let Down
I find it hard to believe that the previous reviewers and ourselves are reviewing the same location. There were four of us, my husband and I and another couple. We were quite looking forward to our stay at the Fox Ridge until we walked into the lobby and then into our rooms. The odour of mold or dampness was so strong that we dreaded staying there even one night. Both couples couldn't wait to get out of there in the morning and we cancelled the second night that we had booked.
I don't believe that I have ever actually stayed over night anywhere before in a room that smelled that strong of mold.
I understand the resort is closed up during the winter and maybe that is the problem.
For what they charge for their rooms we expected clean, fresh rooms. We ended up with the exact opposite and were very disappointed.
To be fair the staff at the reception area were very pleasant . However, the rooms were far from pleasant!!!
I am confident that we could have done something to make them happy while they were here. It is our goal to never have a negative experience at the Fox Ridge.
Loved the recessed location of the hotel - just far enough off the main strip to offer peace and quiet, with great views over the White Mountains.
Pleasant staff, very reasonable prices and the pool was a godsend in unusually hot late june temperatures.
Surrounding area is beautiful - don't miss Diana's Baths, bring your swimwear and enjoy the cascades (if a little on the chilly side), also the Kancamagus Route is stunning and do stop off to do at least 2 of the trails (Mount Chocorua is a 5 hour hike and a challenge but well worth it for the views, nature etc.)
North Conway is a lovely place (despite some reviews on the net saying that is fraying around the edges) - good shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars
This was the best place I have ever stayed in! My 5 year old daughter can't stop talking about the "club house". We ended up booking a family suite. There are lots of things to keep the kids busy & my daughter who is only 40 inches could reach the bottom of the heated indoor pool. I have told many people that this should be your first pick when visiting Storyland. We are alredy making plans for this years trip!
You will not be diappointed!!!

Highly recommended! Wonderful location that was easy to find and featured terrific views. It is within walking distance to great (tax-free!) shopping but still a secluded, retreat-like atmosphere. The room was ample and clean with a nice view from the balcony. The staff was friendly and very helpful, going above the call of duty to be sure our every need was met. This was the best and least expensive of four different places we stayed while on a New England fall vacation.
Visiting from the UK
We stayed in the Fox Ridge Resort for five nights in October this year.
I had spent a long time looking for a hotel and I was not disappointed with this one. Very central and easy to find and North Conway is such a lovely place. The rooms were fabulous and we liked the fact there was coffee and tea available pretty much all the time. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, everyone was so friendly and helpful. I would recommend Fox Ridge to anyone thinking of visiting New Hampshire. We had a wonderful holiday and look forward to visiting your great country again very soon in the future.
I've been staying at Fox Ridge since I was a child. They have great service. You couldn't ask for more. Indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, mini golf, playground, washer and dryer and a gameroom, outdoor trails and a beautiful mountain view. In the summer they offer barbeque's by the outdoor pool; and on weekends they have an excellent buffet breakfast.
Our Favorite place
When we first started going to N. Conway about 10 years ago we weren't sure where to stay. I had always assumed that Fox Ridge, sitting way up on the hill, was out of our league. Then one trip we decided to stay there. It was wonderful! The atmosphere is so relaxed and if you get a mountain view room you can "watch the clouds being made" over coffee in the morning. There is a laundry/game room that even overlooks this incredible view and mini golf and a playground along with an indoor and outdoor pool. Sadly we had to stay other places when we didn't reserve early enough and it was awful! When we stay at Fox Ridge, we are home :)

Thanks to the good people at North End Harley we were back up and running around noon. Phil and I headed straight to the ferry and crossed Lake Champlain to Vermont. It was beautiful - I really enjoyed that state. We missed out on the Vermont Teddy Bear …

We got up early so we could beat the heat and the other tourists to Diana's Bath / Waterfalls,
It was ...
... around with childish excitement, Tuukka included.
This included a visit to the little gift shop, look out terrace and a glance at the weather station.
The return trip down was a little anti-climactic as we were somewhat prepared for the road conditions, and welcomed the climate change from low 30's back to the warm 80s!
If you get the chance, get up there and visit the summit. It'll be an experience I won't forget and am pretty sure you won't either
... his early 50s. He was in the area for its well-known hiking trails. As we'd been very proud of our efforts, we shared the fact we'd just been to the falls and back. His reply was, “but are you doing any hiking”? Suitably deflated, we asked what his definition of a hike was. All we got out of him was a minimum distance of 3 miles, which seemed a little arbitrary… then a couple of Canadian girls agreed that our trip could be called a hike; “what ...
... cases now). The manager evened help us carry our cases up to the 7th floor where our car was, showed me what side I need to get into the car, a detailed printed guide of how to get out of Boston, gave me her mobile number in case we had any problems ( at this point I felt like saying I'm a happily married man but I think she was just being extremely helpful)?
They even gave us a detailed direction sheet how to get out of Boston and onto the road we required.
