I lived in Rinteln and promised myself I'd stay in the Waldkater if I came back for a visit. It is located in a beautiful wood with plenty of scope for a countryside walk. You do need a car to get to the town centre. The room was really nice and clean. Breakfast was the usual German style hotel breakfast.... More

The pub and the restaurant were excellent, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern and comfortable. The location is on the northern edge of Rinteln adjacent to a forest with easy-to-walk hiking paths. A farmer was tilling his field just adjacent to the hotel and forest giving a delightful feel to our stay. Because of... More

Great hotel, close to the village and at the boarders of a forest, good for early morning run. Relaxing environment, Renovated rooms are perfect, continental breakfast is good, staff is welcoming, hotel has its own brewery with great beer selection. Wifi a bit slow at times.

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
