Stayed one night last week, very nice clean room and friendly staff. Payed extra for breakfast and was okay. The hot stuff had been hanging around for awhile they did make fresh eggs but the bacon and sausage had been there too long and was cold. Not everyone is on business and has an early start. Had a lovely swim... More

I booked to stay at this hotel for a single night, on a business trip. I was very, very satisfied with the entire experience. Efficient and friendly check in, and she kindly gave us directions to a number of restaurants. The room was a good size, very clean and modern. Everything was as you would hope for a comfortable night.... More

We booked this hotel through booking.com and paid EUR 114 per night for a "business" double room. Breakfast buffet was EUR 14 pppn which sounds steep, but we thought it was well worth the money: you get a choice of bread, fresh rolls, scrambled and boiled eggs, bacon, sausages, meatballs, cheeses, cold meats, juices, tea /coffee, yoghurt, fresh fruit salad,...

We had a good weekend here. The staff were efficient and friendly, our room was just right, the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good and varied. The bar was very lively, just keep an eye on what tab you are running up! My wife had a good swim and sauna. As I inferred in the title, historic Detmold... More

Really, There's not a lot more to say, the reservations were handled with typical German / Best Western efficiency, the room and ensuite were clean and of a reasonable size. The location isn't too bad, indeed like most Best Westerns, there's nothing that sets it apart from any other, and really, that's probably a good thing !

A lovely hotel with a gem of a bar attached that does fantastic cocktails and some live entertainment. Don't forget to ask for a non smoking bedroom though as I forgot that Germany still allows indoor smoking and as a non smoker it was a downside to our stay but that was my error and not the fault of the...

In the States, Best Westerns are not my hotel chain of choice so I was a bit leery of this hotel for that reason. But it was a perfectly pleasant hotel -- sort of on the order of the new Hyatt Places or Hilton Garden Inns - that level of comfort and accomodation. Very nice beds and baths and a... More

Very pleasant hotel, nice location next to the central shopping area of Detmold. Plenty of restaurants and shops in the area. Staff was very helpful and friendly during the email reservation process and upon our arrival. Comfortable beds, even for three people in a room designed for three adults. Seating and storage area was designed more for two people than... More

I have been frequenting this hotel for almost an eternity (20 years!) and countless nights - followed by the certainly best breakfast in town by far! I watched it all, from Then until Today; the bar has been finally refurbished into a very inviting “state-of-an-art” cocktail lounge and the reception comes over more than just welcoming! The staff is most... More
