We found a great offer from the Beste Western Plus Hotel Ostertor for a Wellness Weekend, and decided that we should try it out. So this was our first time in the BW, because we normally stay elsewhere in Bad Salzuflen. The BW is fairly new, built in what I would call German modern, no frills, style. It is located in the City Center, only a block from the market platz, offers free WiFi, and has free parking downstairs. On the second day of our stay their was some sort of big meeting in their conference center, and the parking was full, so we had to park in the HL supermarket's lot next to the building, and the hotel verified our parking tickets for us. .
We found the hotel to be very clean, almost spotless, comfortable, roomy and offering what travelers normally expect to find in a top class hotel. The bed in our room was large, and very comfortable. We slept great. The bathroom was generous in size, and spotless.
The hotel has a large breakfast room, and the buffet breakfast offered was very nice and offered a good choice.
Our "Wellness Weekend" also offered entrance to the Kurpark, and a Gutschein certificate for use of the Vitasol wellness center. The BW+ is also well outfitted for business travelers, and sports a great HB München Restaurant and Bar.
Very pleasant accommodation

We needed a place to stop for the night between destinations, this was convenient. The hotel was modern and clean. The staff was attentive to our requests. The bed was comfortable. We were well rested and nourished for the next leg of a long trip. We would stay there again, for more days.

Stayed for 2 nights to visit Pronorm. Room was very clean and a nice size. Bathroom very good size with good facilities. Sadly the selection for breakfast was very limited. Have had much better at other hotels in town
Doesn't really stand out

Stayed here for one night. Underground parking was good and convenient. Check in was fairly quick, though the receptionist didn't seem to keen to smile. The room was great, clean, bed very comfortable, great bathroom. Somewhat bemused reading through the guest information that to have bottled water in the room you'd have to ask before arriving and pay €2.50. I would expect that in a 1 star motel but not in a large chain 4 star hotel that, let's be honest, we pay enough for as it is.
The sound proofing was awful/non-existent - you could hear clearly any time anyone walked outside your door, and I was woken up at 2am by two people walking past in the corridor having a conversation. The fan in the bathroom also switched on by itself and took ages to switch off automatically (couldn't find a manual switch) so when trying to sleep you have to wait for that to go off, even with the bathroom door closed.
Breakfast in my opinion was poor. Great seating area and friendly waiters, but the selection (at 7am on a Tuesday so it was not busy at all) just wasn't impressive or diversified in the slightest, the scrambled eggs couldn't be any more dry. Disappointing part.
I pay a lot of attention to the star level/price and if this was cheaper and a 3 star hotel I would rank it higher due to lower expectations. But for my experience I'd give it a 7/10, for a 4 star Best Western nothing really stood out or impressed me in this hotel.
