We stayed for 5 nights and had a very comfortable room. We ate in the restaurant on several days (they are closed on Mondays) and the food and service were excellent. Can thoroughly recommend.

Definitely the best in town! Great service and great meat! Ask for the soups and Argentinian meat! Just one trick: rare is medium and medium is well done!!;-)

The Family History It seems that the Kretschmer family have service to other in their blood, for they have now been serving both the German civil, and the British military communities for three generations! The post war years were difficult for everyone, but George Kretschmer, who had worked his way up to head waiter and successfully run an establishment in Breslau and his wife Charlotte, moved to Hameln and founded on the 24th May 1952 the family business "Zum Schultheiss". The newly built building next to the Horse Chestnut lined street Ilphulweg offered the ideal opportunity! The nearby Linsingen Kaserne (Gordon Barracks) along with the fact that the town centre was less than five minutes away plus a pleasantly green "Biergarten" made a most comfortable setting for his new enterprise. Almost immediately the Britsh community took to the friendly atmosphere, which led to a boom in buisiness and a very happy phase in the life of the, as yet, infant concern, now namend Georges Bar. As time passed as it inevitably does Georges Bar was supported and then eventually run by his son Wolfgang and his wife Marlies, who with much e'lan and innovation, made great strides toward the, by now, "Restaurant Zum Schultheiss". From fairly simple homely cooking, the kitchen, under the super- vision of Marlies Kretschmer took on more and more sophisticated dishes, and with the energetic assistance of their, by now, grown son Jörg rivalled the best in Hameln. Just as his father before him Jörg, already a qualified chef, took on his Master-Chef examinations and in 1998 qualified and is now competent to pass on his own experience to young budding chefs who may now undertake their own training under his supervision. Several conversions and extensions were now to take place leading to the pleasant ambience of today's bar and restaurant, culminating in the opening of the "Hotel Kretschmer" each room, fitted out in the Bavarian style, having shower, toilet, television and telephone available. The reputation of the cuisine Zum Schultheiss has now spread far outside the boundaries of Hameln and is set fair to travel farther as the motto of the house is:.- The Customer is King
