Beautifully restored half-timbered house. Inside as well as outside.

The Historic Inn "Ox" in the center of the village Tamm, makes a nice impression. The half-timbered building has been restored from the outside and inside. In the main street, near the old town hall and the fortified church, makes a good impression. The hotel rooms are functional and attractively furnished. It looks warm and cozy through the many wood on ceilings and walls. A decent price / performance ratio. Our guests we had stayed there, felt very comfortable.
This review is only for the hotel - NOT for the restaurant.
Suburb of Ludwigsburg and Stuttgart hotel

Initial views were positive. Old hotel and plenty of character. Alas this turned out to be a very fraught stay. Room was on the very top floor and no lift available due to the age of the property. Double rooms are only on the roadside and the Main Street was busy until late evening and from early morning. But the worst thing was the church bells. The church was very close and the bells chimed every 15minutes and on the hour right through the night too. We did not get much sleep and as we had booked for three nights we were very tired when we came to leave. Breakfast was excellent! We would have like the room to have been cleaned well each day and new towels. No towels were given the whole time we were there and they were quire worn as well. Overall not a place we would say we would go back to. If you ewspect your peace and quiet at nighttime this is not the hotel for you.
Warm welcome in this historic inn

This is a historic hotel restaurant, delicatessen etc in a small old town in the black forest. It's been in the same family for around 200 years. The bedroom was beamed, large and comfortable, quiet despite overlooking road, although there is occasional traffic noise on hot nights with windows open.
Restaurant has lovely outdoor eating area. Food is excellent, specialising in local dishes, beautifully prepared in huge quantities, so you will need a large appetite and lots of exercise beforehand if you hope to get through 3 courses. Staff are charming and welcoming, explaining menu etc. We stayed in old part of hotel, which was lovely, but noticed a large newer annexe at the bag but can't comment on that. We will be returning as both food and stay were wonderful.
Traditional family run hotel with gourmet resteruant

If you are looking for a quality oldie woldie hotel with character to stay at, look no further. Ochsen has all of that and more. The hotel is run with a passion by the family who own it with a special emphasis on the restaurant and wine cellar. The owner was able to provide guests with the very best of German wine from his local contacts, so if you are looking for something different you will find it here. Restaurant food is also excellent if not to hearty, with lots of game on the menu. As with a hotel of this age, the rooms are located all over the place with crooked corridors and stairs. It's a bit of a labyrinth. My room was located on the top floor overlooking the street. The furnishing were a cross between ancient and modern with a nice large bathroom. If I had to make a comment I would say less furniture and a bigger bed would have done me nicely. All in all a charming hotel.
Beautiful only outside
Reviewed 29 November, 2014
From outside it's a very beautiful building, really historical, old german style. The ground floor is very typical as well, but as you get in to the room, the magician environment suddenly ends. Moquette everywhere and the corridor had a bad smell.
The room was simple and the furniture basic. However the room was silent, also because the town is very peaceful.
The breakfast was quite various, but nothing special.
Nothing in particular to complain, only to be aware that the first impression from outside is not respected in the room as well, but quality price adequate. It's not the hotel that I'll remember for years.
The price was fair reflecting the comments above.
