The Ketschauer Hof is an exquisite hotel on the edge of the pretty town of Deidesheim, in the heart of the German winelands, with views over the vineyards to the Rhine Valley. Set in the Bassermann-Jordan wine estate's former manor house, it offers a gourmet restaurant, and a more informal restaurant. Rooms have a calm and contemporary white-on-white palette, with lacquered cupboard fronts inlaid with mirrored patterns, and white Loewe TVs, offset by burgundy red and leafy green accents in the embroidered cushions. Beautifully stitched eiderdowns and travertine marble bathrooms with underfloor heating, khaki-coloured cotton-fronted towelling bathrobes and lamps hand-strung with Swarovski crystal, add luxurious touches. The small spa under the cellar arches somehow manages to include a treatment room, sauna and steam rooms plus a relaxation lounge.
