I have never stayed in a more welcoming and friendly hotel. The staff are superb and incredibly helpful. The food is excellent, as is the service. The room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The location is very central. I will stay again next time I am in the area.

We read some good reviews on this hotel , but very disappointed when we arrived, the bar area is nice and welcoming but the room was not. Room was old tried and tatty, the double bed was two twins push together, the TV didn't work properly, the mini bar was not turned on as it didn't work and had a...

Harderwijk is located somewhere hard to explain, but in the town itself - location of the hotel is very good. Bar is located in the same building as hotel, so if you need one more beer before sleep - the choice is yours. Breakfast is quite nice (omelet and sausages plus ingredients for sandwiches). When you enter your room during...

In short, middle of summer, stained dirty carpets, ageing towel and worst of all zero aircon in the rooms. Do not stay here in summer. Ever. The location is great, quiet and relaxing, and if this hotel could simply clean the carpets, replace the towels and install aircon it might be worth considering this on your next trip.

Overall, the experience was fair. I had very good service by the wonderful women in the front, specifically Willeke van Norel and Femie Klein. PROS: - Location - conveniently located next to lots of shops (that don't ever seem open), Biddinghuizen (for music festivals), and more - Free parking - 5 minutes away to free parking, which isn't horrible, but...

We have eaten at this restaurant (and stayed at the hotel) a few years ago and were very pleased. Now we went back for a nice dinner and were again pleased with the food and service. The menu is not very extensive but all dishes that we have tried so far are of a high quality standard and very tasteful....

A great little hotel by Best Western. The feel of a European hotel with a bit of western charm. The rooms were nice size, but no air condition, but it cools off at night so open windows. Could use some screans to keep bugs. Bar and food was good. The town was a neat sea side resort.

We landed late in the day at Lelystad Airport and the incredibly helpful receptionist there booked us into this hotel and sorted out a taxi (48 euros). Then I read some of the hotel reviews on TripAdvisor! Harderwijk, the receptionist had advised, was preferable to Lelystad and indeed it turned out to be a fascinating place . Spent a great...
