About Us


Heinrich Appel started an inn in Betzenrod in 1906. He ran this simple restaurant until the 1960s. Thereafter, the inn was continued by tenants.

In 1974, Karl Appel took over the inn and started a new by demolishing the building. Within 3 years, the Hotel Restaurant Landhaus Appel was build with great support by the whole family.

Right after the opening on Friday, May 13, 1977 an expasion 10 to 27 guest rooms started. As a result, todays capacity was reached. In the next years, continous refreshes and redesigns were implemented. And again, since Februar 2009, all rooms have been renovated and redesigned.

In September 2007, our Hotel Restaurant Landhaus Appel was rated by the DEHOGA in cooperation with the German Tourism Association according the rules of the German Hotel Classification with a 3-star rating.

That makes us proud and drives us to do the best for our guests!
