This review is written from a very English perspective, I understand that this is a small town in Germany, so the staff cannot be expected to speak a foreign language fluently.
However, for the money it is fantastic. My room was spotless, and on par with other european budget hotels in size. The room had a small TV with CNN and BBC news, Tea and coffee with kettle and a hairdryer. En suite had the most powerful shower I have ever used. Fantastic for blowing a hangover away but maybe a little too strong for young children. It is also easy to flood the bathroom because of this. The room was quiet in general, but you can sometimes hear guests in the corridor. If possible, enquire about a room at the front of the building, although overlooking a main road you do get a large balcony.
There is free WIFI in all rooms, with good speeds via wireless routers every 5-6 rooms. The security key is available from the bar.
Breakfast was hams, cheeses, breads and juice/tea/coffee.
The front door is locked from 11pm, so beware of this. You will find a second key on your room key ring that unlocks a back door behind the Doctors surgery.
There is a lift up to the third floor. From there, the only access is stairs.
The hotel has a small bar and a intimate restaurant, but is a 5 minute walk from Holzminden town centre with many good bars and restaurants. I can recommend the "Beer Garden".
The staff are very friendly, but some do not speak English. It is easy to get your point across with a mixture of German, English and some gesturing though!
I was pleasantly suprised, and very glad I gave Hotel Buntrock a chance.
