Four generations

"Altes Gasthaus Kuhr in Papenburg"

On May 30, 2023, the “Altes Gasthaus Kuhr” will already have been in existence for 175 years in the fourth generation. When I thought about what constitutes this long tradition, I realised that it is above all the ties we have forged over the years.

Our “Altes Gasthaus Kuhr” is therefore more than just a restaurant and a hotel. It is a place of gathering, exchange and togetherness. A togetherness of guests, friends and colleagues. A place where people from Papenburg and all over the world meet and feel comfortable.

A large family of guests and team members united by a love of and passion for gastronomy and conviviality. The families who have run this business for decades have put in a lot of work, dedication and passion. Their determination and dedication have laid the foundation on which we stand today.

A critical factor in our longstanding success is the significant role women have played in our history. From generation to generation, they have preserved hospitality and their warm nature has kept our guests returning time and time again.

Of course, it is also our many regular guests who make the “Altes Gasthaus Kuhr” special. Many of you have been regulars at our “Home” for years, some even for decades. Your loyalty and support have always inspired and spurred us to do our very best. You and our unique team are the heart and soul of our hotel and restaurant. We are immensely grateful that you are part of our history.

Another element that has always shaped us is the location of our house on the main canal. This canal serves as a living connecting line between us and the world. It has brought guests to us from afar, brought trade and culture to us, and enriched us with a variety of people and stories.

The main canal is a symbol of openness and hospitality that we have cultivated here for 175 years.

Einfach super, hier stimmt einfach alles, das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist nicht zu toppen, die Küche ist genial und einen zweiten Sternekoch, der seine Messer selber schmiedet, kenne ich auch nicht.

Ganz schlechtes Zimmer nach hinten zum Parplatz und Diskothek hin, die ganze Nacht haben wir meine Frau und ich nicht schlafen können. Andere Hotelgäste waren von dem Lärm genau so genervt! Der Lärm begann um ca. 23 Uhr und hörte am anderen Morgen um 8 Uhr auf.Nie wieder das Hotel, für den Preis und den Ärger viel zu teuer. Ein Hotelmitarbeiter sagte mir, das ist jedes Wochenende so.Na dann, allen Hotelgästen nach uns viel Spaßmit der Disko!

Wir haben mit 12 Freunden im Hotel Kuhr 2 Nächste übernachtet. Alle Freunde waren vom Hotel begeistert. Gutes Frühstück, nettes Personal, gutes Essen und zentrale Lage. Kurzfristig musste ein Paar krankheitsbedingt absagen. Das Hotel verhielt sich sehr kulant. Wir kommen gerne wieder .
