A group reservation taking a good number of rooms resulted in a great experience to all participants to our meeting. Visitors from South Africa, New Zealand, Korea, China, India, Denmark, Brasil, Mexico and the US all were uniform in their messages and found this an experience not to be missed when visiting this part of the Netherlands. Rooms are spacious,...

The gardens are a joy to walk through. Besides flowers, they grow their own vegetables for the restaurant. There is a charge for breakfast and there is a very hearty layout of fresh food. We like to sit in the far corner table by the windows to watch the ducks in the canal. Every room is decorated differently. We stayed...

If you love new use of old buildings this destination is for you. We loved the comfortable room with high ceilings, big windows with wonderful views, comfy bed and great big bathroom with a tub large enough to soak in for hours! The old wooden frame windows can rattle with high winds on stormy days, but it was just part...

Kitchen,restaurant,bakery,shop,hotel,garden, everything is mostly worth visiting. If I've lived here, I should be there every week! Dordrecht is an old cute little city to visit. Nearby walking or take the bus. Line 10.

The largely unrenovated buildings and market garden style concept of this hotel is an absolute inspiration. I suspect the owners of the hotel took a huge risk with the "unfinished" concept that pervades it. However, it really works and is really quite refreshing compared to the cold, stark architecture of many new hotels. The service of the staff probably plays...

Only 15 minutes on the metro from Blaak, Dordrecht is a must visit while staying in Rotterdam. We found out too late you can also get there by water bus, which takes about an hour. One of the oldest towns in The Netherlands with many intact and well restored buildings, Dordrecht is well worthwhile - spend 2-3 hours just walking...

A most unusual hotel but fabulous. Home grown fruit and veg at meals. Wonderfully fresh tasting food. The vegetable tagliatelle is delicious. The rooms are large, the beds just right and the position and views are superb. I'll come here again.

Villa Augustus was to be the final highlight of this trip to the Netherlands. Unfortunately when we arrived the Hotel staff informed us they would be having a "small" party for all former and current staff which would be as quiet as possible. The reality was like trying to sleep next to a nightclub until the music stopped just before...

We were in Dordrecht for one night only for a friends' birthday party and were very impressed upon first sight of Villa Augustus. We booked The Lantern Room which is on the top floor and has a spiral staircase leading to a glass tower with 360 degree view of the town. The rooms themselves are not quite luxurious but the...

We went here for a late lunch. The food was very good, the staff is nice. The service could be better, We met at least 5/6 different waiters. I had a goat cheese salad, very good and the lamb also very good. The place looks good with an open kitchen and a they have a store as well to buy...

In the middle of the kitchengarden you will find two monumental buildings.
