This hotel is lovely! We did have my mother-in-law with us who speaks excellent German which made things much easier, they did however translate the set menu into English when the restaurant staff realised we were staying for a week. The food was excellent and they tried hard to please us all, covering a vegetarian and children in our large... More

Ideally situated for a restful stay near Rinteln and the surrounding towns.Bedrooms newly renovated in style, Only criticism was reading light by bed rather poor. Dining in the Brewery was good as was taking in the scenery on the terrace in wonderful sunshine.

The Waldkater has everything, peaceful surroundings, a large garage for the car, wonderful food and comfortable rooms plus their special highlight. They brew their own beer, a wonderful light beer in the 'pils' tradition as well as a lovely dark rich brew, Sunday brunch is also a highlight for the family. We can't wait to revisit this autumn.

Beautifully situated hotel. Interesting brewery with beer to go in large growlers. Sat in the casual bar area and enjoyed espresso mit sahne and waffles with hot cherries. Lovely property and would stay here if in the area.

I have stayed here (or eaten here) off and on over very many many years. It now appears to be part of the 'Ring' chain. Its located in quite a beautiful part of Germany and not too far from Hameln (of Pied Piper fame), the river Weser (where the Rats ended up), Hannover Airport and various spa towns that are... More

I stayed here for business about 10 years ago for about a week. I imagine it hasn't changed much since then so I figured my review would be still accurate. A nice hotel on the outskirts of town and also right on the edge of the forest with plenty of trails to walk on. A brewery on site: what can... More

Oh if this isn't the best way to experience Germany. Freshly brewed beer, good german food, your standard great german breakfast. Unground parking kind of nice to. Good rooms, the place didn't blow me away but I've very happily spend a night there again.
