HISTORY & LOCATION
The Manor am Hirschhorn can now look back on a history of more than twenty years.
In the summer of 1993, Gabriele and Oliver Ulses in Wilgartswiesen purchased an old, simple pension in a picturesque location with the goal of creating a hotel with an international flair and appealing cuisine.
The location of the hotel precisely on the boundary between the Palatinate Forest Nature Park and the holiday region of the German Wine Road offer holidaymakers both diverse relaxation options in nature as well as also countless tourist attractions for the themes of viniculture and German history. The city of Wilgartswiesen, for example, has the Wilgarta Fortress, one of the oldest cultural landmarks in Germany.
While Gabriele Ulses, as a native-born Wilgartswiesen resident and trained Hotel Manager, contributed the local and hotel industry-related background, Oliver Ulses, after multiple stations in various renowned restaurant kitchens throughout the entire Rhineland-Palatinate and a particular specialisation in the preparation of sea food, was predestined to transform his in-house kitchen into a prominent top-class restaurant. With a lot of creativity and dedication, the couple, in cooperation with their first employees, set to work to realise their dream of a quite special hotel. Overall, 16 renovations and additions, e.g. the 600-square-metre-sized Wellness Retreat, allowed the Manor am Hirschhorn to become more and more what it is today: A wellness hotel with an indoor pool, a sauna landscape and a lot of room for relaxation, family-operated and thus never impersonal and always a very congenial manner of interacting with all guests. 16 lovingly-designed rooms and a 60 square-metre as well as tastefully-furnished suite offer the hotel guests very beautiful retreat options after tough and exhaustingly stressful times during everyday life. In the hotel’s own Energy Vital Paradise and on the Beauty Farm, one permanent and four freelance Therapists in the five treatment rooms are constantly focussed on totally pampering their guests with relaxing massages and beneficial facial treatments.
A special highlight in 2001 was becoming a Four-Star Hotel. Since then, Gabriele and Oliver Ulses–now supported by their daughter Nadine and the total of 15 employees, some of whom are long-term employees–never become tired of pragmatically implementing additional ideas for the hotel.
In 2013, both of the newest highlights of the hotel were completed with the “Steinzeit” [Stone Age] Studios for which stones from throughout the world were combined to form a particularly beautiful form of “modern art”. At the Manor am Hirschhorn, travellers can feel right at home at any time of the year–regardless of whether it is for a wellness weekend or a longer holiday stay.
