Here’s to the next 15 years!
Guest satisfaction is our aim!
Attention to detail is what counts when it comes to customer satisfaction and Welcome Hotels is known for its fastidious attention to detail. The management views the "Q-Accreditation“ that ServiceQualität Deutschland has awarded to every single one of the group’s seventeen hotels as instrumental when it comes to achieving guest satisfaction across the board and ensuring a continued high level of service. Back in 2012 following intense market research, Welcome Hotels decided to implement Service-Qualität guidelines that aim to improve customer satisfaction and service across the group as a whole. Even long before the awarding of Q-Accreditation, Welcome Hotels was doing everything in its power to face the challenges of a demanding hotel sector and ensuring that each and every hotel gives its guests a true feel of “You are Welcome”.
Passion and smart thinking pave the road to success
We are driven by our passion for our jobs and our fervour to ensure that we give each and every guest a true feeling of "you are welcome". A warm welcome only comes across as genuine when it comes from the heart. Combine this with a kind, prefessional and efficient level of service and you have the corporate philosophy that we apsire to live by.
- It is important to us that we ...
- • provide our guests with consistent high-quality service
• master even the smallest day-to-day detail
• continue to train and educate our members of staff
• continue to choose carefully selected locations for new
• additions to the group
• continue to invest in the substance of our current hotels to provide sustained business success to ensure the jobs of our staff and create additional workplaces and of course to earn money.
These are the guiding principles behind our expansion plans within Germany.

Innovation für Lebensmittelsicherheit
Bereits seit 2011 arbeitet WELCOME HOTELS Hand in Hand mit Quant Qualitätssicherung zusammen, einem der führenden Berater rund um die Themen Ernährung und Lebensmittel. Im Fokus der erfolgreichen Zusammenarbeit stehen
- die Lebensmittelhygiene,
- die Lebensmittelqualität sowie
- das Lebensmittelrecht.
„Entsprechend unserer eigenen Ansprüche möchten wir unseren Gästen einen Qualitätsstandard, der weit über die gesetzlichen Vorgaben hinaus geht, garantieren – insbesondere bei der Lebensmittelsicherheit,“ erklärt Engelbert Beule, Küchendirektor der WELCOME HOTELS.
Ein weiterer positiver Aspekt: Durch die Optimierung der Hygienestandards konnten zusätzlich Küchenprozesse optimiert werden. Regelmäßige Begehungen der Küchen, aber auch Begehungen der Hotelinnen- und außenbereiche sowie Beratung bei Trinkwasseruntersuchungen und der Konzepterstellung nach HACCP Prinzipien sind Bestandteil der engen Zusammenarbeit und gehören in allen 17 Häusern der Hotelgruppe zum Standard. Denn nur durch die Gewährleistung erstklassiger Qualität ist es möglich höchsten Ansprüchen gerecht zu werden, um damit die Erwartungen der Gäste immer wieder aufs Neue zu übertreffen.
