You can tell, they really try here: constant renovation and enlargement going on, which leads to the hotel having three very diffrent wings: an old wing, a newer wing and a brand new one. Depending in which wing you'll end up will set the tone for your hotel experience and the newest wing (still in construction then) looked pretty spectacular for a hotel in that area.
I had a single room (really a single as not suitable for more one person and a small suitcase) which seemed quite newly renovated, but you could tell it was in the old wing from room structure, door, windows etc. It had a high pile carpet which I don't appreciate and regard as a hygiene problem, especially in hotels.
Although Bad Salzuflen is not Midtown Manhattan there was some considerable noise coming from the street, a terrace below my window - and from the bathroom vent.
Wifi was not free, but very cheap - and one of the slowest I ever encountered.
The public areas are a little like "interior designer going wild": obviously expensively decorated, but stuffed with a strange, not very obvious mix of Asiatic, British and other items.
I did not try the breakfast or restaurant, but was almost unsuccessful trying to get a drink at 5:30 p. m. at any of their three outlets, because the new and very attractive rooftop lounge closed due to bad weather and the two bars weren't open yet. Luckily, the barkeeper at "Spirit of India" bar had the courtesy to serve me nonetheless (at pretty high prices).
Bottom line: if you don't get a room in the newer or newest wing, there are better options in Bad Salzuflen.
