Recent guest reviews
Stayed here recently and the hotel was great , just a bit out of the town but the staff , food , rooms all excellent. It is a great hotel in a good location for travelers. The breakfast was very good and served a buffet and continental breakfast service
Friendly staff good food and hotel was good in general. Stayed one night for business. Restaurant was great good steak and good hearty breakfast. Location a bit out of town but good for a quiet nights sleep. Lovely area
Lets put it like this, if you are expecting a huge flat-screen plasma, all singing and dancing bathrooms etc.. this isn't for you. Lets just say.. it was in a good way like stepping back in time a little. The décor is very much late 70's or early 1980's... you could have imagined Thatcher, Kolh and Mitterrand being at a summit here... but anyway, let me run through the details.... Large hotel in the spa town. From memory Bad Salzfulen is a for taking in the thermals and has remained unchanged over the years. Last time I visited was about 20 years previously & wanted to re-visit the hotel The reception area was fine, check-in as per usual, and they hand-out keys not cards, that made a change. Hotel room top floor was fine, decent size, stocked bar, decent bed, old tv.. but it had local language channels available. The bathroom, fine, shower great, tiles, well I think they are back in fashion again! Think of the sit-com the 'Good life'... Very much 'Surbiton - Margot & Gerry' But perfectly clean and working. The restaurant was large and bright except a comfortable smaller dining section in the hotel, this had about 8-10 diners the two evenings I dined. The food was excellent, very hot, well presented and a good quality. Alexander the restaurant manager and a young female assistant, both staff were very good, Alex in particular, greeted you, firm handshake and that says a lot. Didn't use the pool or have breakfast so cannot comment. Id stay here without any hesitation.. and maybe let Maritim keep it as it is...
Stayed in this hotel for 1 night with 2 collegues and we had booked 3 rooms. We were a bit worried about getting into the hotel as our flight was late and we didn't arrive at the hotel to 11.45p.m but it stated on the website that the hotel closed the reception at 10pm. When we arrived there was a very friendly staff member to greet us and give us our keys. The room were very clean and the hotel was extremely quiet. Rooms has pay per view English movies. The breakfast was excellent and the beds were very cumfortable. The only minor negative thing We could say was the wifi was a bit slow but as long as your aren't looking to stream movies it is fine. After reading some bad reviews about this hotel I am not sure what there was to complain about as all of us were very happy with it and would definitely use it again in the future.
Pleasant but dated hotel. Staff were all good, and rooms comfortable, WiFi was free but not the quickest. Breakfast was fabulous. Had room service which was good (and quick). People staying there seemed to be generally older germans come for the cure!
I have stayed here many times over the years and its hardly changed a bit: I was lucky this time to get a really nice room – bedroom, bathroom and an anteroom. Two balconies and good heating for a very cold May evening and it was spotlessly clean: lots of fresh towels and other accruements such as a trouser-press and tea/coffee making facilities much appreciated – though the still-immaculate brown décor does show the hotel’s heritage. Some previous rooms have been far too antiquated and, with single beds, very uncomfortable. Although it probably is aimed more at those taking a “Cure” - and whilst those folk probably are somewhat older than many (as I am) - it is still used for conferences (which is why I was there) and seems to attract a range of different folk. So to denigrate its older clientele as some reviews here have is unhelpfully ageist. What lets it down badly however is the truly exorbitant costs of Wi-Fi and parking and a somewhat mediocre restaurant. Breakfast was good – the bar somewhat expensive – and the lifts slow. Parking is relatively limited too and you get quite wet (when it rains) walking from the three-level covered parking area in to the hotel itself. Parking outside the hotel grounds is not really advised as there are various limitations on length of stay and access during “quiet” periods. Despite its limitations it is a good place to stay – and there are lots of places to eat in the town as well as good walks in the Kurpark; in short its a very reliable hotel if you choose your room with care.
Very friendly hotel service, but all other things are on a very low standard level and outdated. The hotel needs a renovation very soon. No WLAN ... only LAN for 15 Euro a day! 20 inch TV with a bit more than 3 channels. 14 Euro for the parking, you better leave your car on the street next to the hotel. I can also not recommend the restaurant, because there is only dinner buffet available and the food tasted like it was there for several hours or since lunch time. You better look for another option!
The positive side, it was clean and the staff was friendly and if you fancy original decor from the 70ties you are at the perfect place. The rooms are small and have not been refurbished for decades. The internet was 15 euro a day for a landline connection. No electrical were available at the desk so either you need an extension cable or to move the television and minibar and use it's electrical plug Wireless was not available in my room but a wireless network was available in the lobby. It was not possible to borrow an iron and ironing board, an ironing service was available for a surcharge.
Bad Salzuflen attracts a typically older age of visitor, owing to its range of spa and health facilities. In the hotel despite my 50th birthday looming up next year, it was like being part of an episode of "Waiting for God" in the hotel, with the surreal sight of the lobby full of septuagenarians dancing to a organist singing "Are you lonesome tonight?" (in German of course). We did feel young. The best part about the hotel is its location, right opposite the park. The hotel was clearly well-built in, I would guess, 1975. The restaurant is the high spot but the rooms and corridors are in desperate need of refurbishment. Bathrooms are dark and poor by modern standards. Breakfasts and car parking are both very pricey. Although the breakfast buffet is very extensive and the staff are pleasant and friendly, at 16 EUR a go (including our son who had a daily diet of two rolls, a chocolate muffin and a glass of orange juice for 16 EUR) it's a bit steep. Parking is 13 EUR per day. Add to that one day of Internet access at 15 EUR, our "extras" bill which was for breakfast, parking, internet, one coffee and a bag of pretzels from the mini bar was about the same as the cost of the rooms! Bad Salzulfen is a lovely town, and we will definitely be back. Near to the hotel is Vitasol, a large, state-of-the-art public spa that you must visit. Floating in a salt bath relaxing whilst listening to underground music was a wonderful experience and we could have stayed much longer. Regrettably, unless we hear of a refurbishment at the Maritim, on our next visit to BZ we will look for another hotel
Dependable accomodation in a good location - though the decor and fittings are now more than a bit dated. All very clean and tidy with a thoroughly good restaurant serving very good food. Friendly staff all well presented and well trained. Garage is a tad expensive and many rooms have very narrow single beds tucked up against a wall. Access late at night is limited (by road) as its located in a Spa Town. The town itself is well worth seeing - inlcuding the walls of twigs soaked in brine (a local health thing!!).
