Hotel Restaurant Esser - traditional hospitality

The familiar atmosphere in our hotel and restaurant will inspire you. We would be pleased if you would like to get to know us! We are a family-run hotel with a long history and located in Wegberg-Kipshoven.

Highest standard for you as our guest - that is our claim and motivation!

The most important thing is that you feel comfortable with us! Enjoy a friendly, warm and familiar atmosphere in our hotel and restaurant. We are now in the third generation to maintain personal contact with you, our guests. At our newly designed bar, the linchpin of a good restaurant, you will still receive your beer tapped by the boss himself. We are always thinking up new concepts and events for our restaurant to create the perfect evening for you. Your event, whether conference or celebration, we plan individually with you and take your wishes into account in the best possible way. Our chef, who has been working in our kitchen since 1986, prepares the food for our restaurant using only fresh products and in the best quality.
