    « Great Hotel »

    To clarify the no air condition, not many places in Germany have air conditioning, however, the room was very comfortable. Large windows to open (very common in Germany) with nice breeze. Beds were comfortable, room was very clean, bathroom was very clean also. Hotel has a restuarant that serves a great breakfast, with traditional German sevings as well as typical American items (eggs, sauage, bacon, etc) Overall great experience, close to local sight seeing and local business.

    « A warm experience »

    In both ways it was a warm experience: professional and kind receptionists and staff, clean rooms and good breakfast. But the rooms were not air conditioned, only some ventilation present. Although it was just a bit over 20 C outside, the rooms were too warm. The only cool place was the pool, that was nice and big enough.

    « Simply good »

    This hotel offers enough to make it a really good hotel. We always forget to make use of all facilities and thus felt like a good normal business hotel. However, the place has a pretty ok pool with sauna, as well as a very fashionable pub-style bar and a good breakfast area. If you stay a week in Detmold, it will be definitely worth the money. Service is good. It is a shame the hotel is not in the middle of the old town, but it is very easy to walk in, since it is situated on its edge. Detmold is not that big. Rooms are clean and spacious. I did miss a desk and sufficient chairs though (we had one chair to share for three beds...). Also I did not realise I was having a twin bed, while I think I ordered a double bed (I did not change this though).

    « Full Service, comfortable hotel in great location »

    We were delighted to find our room was spacious and included a balcony with a view of the Allstadt. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. After a long drive to get there we were happy to enjoy some refreshments (thanks to a 2 for 1 deal at the bar) on our balcony, despite the less than perfect weather. The Allstadt itself was just steps away and beautiful with many historic buildings, interesting waterways (including black swans) and lovely parks. The breakfast room was spacious and the food delicious and generous. The staff efficiently dealt with a large party ensuring that we were able to enjoy a peaceful and generous breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed the town and the hotel and would definitely plan to spend more time there on our next trip.

    « Fantastic »

    Think last review was on wrong hotel as Waiters were women. Lovely hotel nice food good bar and swimming pool too. Always a plus Plenty of shopping to be done and a great night out bowling its just next door. Nothing too much trouble at hotel fab room with large balcony.

    « Horrible »

    This place was a dive. The waiters were perverts and were checking out my 13 year old niece. There was nothing to do and the drinks were watered down. DO NOT GO HERE!!!! Also the plates in the bar were disgusting

    « Clean rooms and nice staff »

    Good location, clean rooms and careful staff. The hotel has a swimming pool and a sauna. It would b nice to find a mini bar in a four-star hotel. Also it is very inconvenient to have one internet access in a double room.

    « never again »

    We booked the Residenz Hotel since our favorite hotels in Detmold and surrounding were fully booked. It was a mistake. We booked a first class room, since it was advertised as the best and largest rooms they have. Well just the balcony was large, the room was very small and the bathroom was so small that it was impossible to enter if the partner was in it. When we arrives, the receptionist told my husband where he could park the car and left me with the luggage in the hall, indicating that I could carry it to our room. One day breakfast seemed to have suffered from a tsunami; tables full of used crockery, empty buffet and no one to adress to. The only thing you can do at such a moment is enter the kitchen and tell them you are there and want to have breakfast. It's nice if you know a litlle bit of hotelbusiness, since they had a new machine to make waffles, but didn't know how to use it. The hotel surely gaines money by not having a lot of staff (2 or 3 persons we did see) and they are young and not well trained. So never again.
