Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Me and my little daughter spent a couple of nights of our holiday in this beautiful tiny hotel. We came from Italy and our dutch friends booked it for us. We couldn't aspect a more amazing gift. The room was a dream, from the lovely and elegant details, to the perfect cleanness and the open view. In the morning we found at the door (at the time chosen by us) a rich, delicious, healthy and fresh breakfast with the sunlight coming in from the wide windows. The personal was always present at the entrance and the professional kindness has been appreciated. Silent and peaceful place, although the strategic position in plain center of Utrecht. I suggest to everyone visiting it and for sure I will come back! Here we felt happy, relaxed, safe and beloved. Thank you so much for making this staying so special.

A friendly welcome. An unexpected room upgrade. Very comfortable. Exactly what I was hoping for. Highly recommended. I have already booked a return visit. Not sure what else to say but apparently I have to use a minimum of two hundred characters.

Very nice rooms I had a bath and shower. The room was quiet good glazing. Very comfortable but BBC 1 and BBC 2 had no signal. The hairdryer was good. It would be nice to have fresh milk in the room to make tea. Breakfast was very good but a bit messy organizing the delivered picnic. It would be good if the had a mini bar in the room or licence to serve alcohol and a small room service menu even if it was order in from a choice of suppliers. Lovely cookies in reception. Excellent location.

Hi Lucy, Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a nice review. 😊 We are happy to hear you liked our room and the location! It is unfortunate to hear the BBC channels had no signal during your stay. We will also definitely look at your comments about the breakfast delivery, and the mini bar in the room. At the moment we indeed don't have a licence to serve alcohol. To compromise, there are plenty of bars within walking distance due to our central location. Of course we think it is unfortunate to hear you missed this during your stay. Nevertheless we are happy your overall experience was comfortable! 🪶 Kind regards, Lynn | Mother Goose

Short Version; We loved our stay at Mother Goose in Utrecht, and would 100% recommend. Long Version; We arrived late in the day to a warm welcome from the mother geese (the staff)! As we booked with the Mother Goose website we were offered a complimentary drink and a thank you. Checking in was a breeze, and we were offered a list of favourite local restaurants to try in the city centre. The room was clean, tidy, and beautifully decorated. Definitely a comfy place to come back and rest. We had all we needed for coffee and tea in the room with a nespresso machine and kettle. We took advantage of the ‘breakfast in bed’ option to have a basket of goodies delivered at a time of our choosing before heading out of town on the train. It was fresh and delicious. The staff was very kind and accommodating. We even forgot our Type-C adapter and they were able to provide one for us to borrow. We were so excited that we forgot to take photos in the Again, would recommend this happy little hotel. You’ll feel at home.

The neutral colors and furnishings made for a very relaxed stay. As others mentioned the location is perfect for Utrecht and a quick walk to the train. I had no issues with noise and slept great. I was in the smaller room as it was just myself and found it more than enough. I had my do not disturb sign out one day, and found a bag of more teas, coffee, tissues hanging on my door without having to ask. The toiletries were amazing, so much so I looked the company up and purchased them once back in Germany. After reading about the company that makes them, I really appreciated the hotel choosing them for the rooms. Finally, the best thing here is the picnic breakfast basket. I am vegan and the basket was a dream full of fresh foods. The only thing I regret about my stay is not choosing the picnic basket for my first morning there! You must do it, I still think of it. Finally, the staff was very accommodating and helpful with my questions and changing dates. Anytime I emailed, I got a quick personal response back.

Absolute best hotel experience. Small and quaint. Super comfy. Cool decor. New and fresh. Great shower. Did the breakfast basket for 2. Could have fed 4 and it was only $35 euros. Highly recommend this place. Oh, and the location is steps from the action
