The IDINGSHOF Hotel & Restaurant, a historic farmhouse turned hotel, offers a serene stay adjacent to the peaceful Hasesee Lake in Bramsche, Lower Saxony. With its roots dating back to 1449 and officially opening as a hotel in 1880, it represents a fusion of tradition and contemporary hospitality, with its modern furnishings and a rich tradition of cozy hospitality in peaceful country surroundings. Guests can relish a generous breakfast buffet in the morning and delectable international dishes with regional nuances in the evening, with a summer option to dine on the terrace overlooking the lake. The hotel provides complimentary access to multiple leisure facilities, including indoor tennis courts, squash courts, fitness machines, and sauna, besides granting free admission to the public Hasebad indoor pool and the Darnsee outdoor pool.
Reviews share a mixed picture, highlighting both the merits and areas for improvement at the hotel. The room facilities, particularly the inclusion of amenities like Wi-Fi, tea/coffee makers, and a large TV, alongside the modern furnishings, have been positively noted by visitors. The restaurant receives commendations for its buffet evening meals and substantial breakfast options, and the parking convenience is also remarked upon favorably. However, certain issues have been pointed out, such as challenges with reservation management and the anticipated delivery of an e-receipt. Moreover, there’s a call for improvement in the placement of the smoking bar and the provision of English-speaking TV channels. The staff at the restaurant seemed to be particularly stretched, yet the tranquility of the location, accessibility, and the quality of breakfast are consistently praised, despite some noting the absence of air conditioning during hotter periods.
