My husband and I recently toured around Holland, mostly to see the tulips bloom on the west coast of the country. My husband did extensive research about where to stay while we "visited the tulips" and he landed on Savelberg. Well, I am glad he did. It was spectacular! It is a bit south of the tulip fields and Keukenhof, but not that much. It took us about 20 minutes at the most to reach Keukenhof Gardens from Savelberg.
The hotel is located in Voorburg. It is set in a lovely sort of park. It has animals, gardens....just a lovely peaceful setting. The hotel obviously used to be someone's home...it is a large home on a glorious estate. It is just beautiful. We stayed in Room 2 which came with a lovely back porch or balcony that overlooked the park.....absolutely beautiful and serene. The room was lovely, the bed comfortable, the view spectacular. It seems to be a family run business, and the attention you get from everyone (including the cat) is fantastic. A very intimate experience is exactly what we had. You are next to a very large city (Den Hague), but this is tucked into what seems to be a little nature preserve.....soooo peaceful. I found myself wanting to stay there for the entire trip.
The food was more than I can describe...it was superbe! We had breakfast each day and had such wonderful service and food. Dinner was incredible....the food just kept coming! Be prepared for a true European experience with this dinner.....it was top notch. The chef made outstanding dishes, I felt very spoiled.
Everyone at this hotel really cared and it was quite apparent that they did. I would highly recommend staying here. You are close enough to Keukenhof and the tulip fields....it is not touristy at all....you are in the countryside...it is serene and beautiful...sigh...what else can I say other than we will definitely come back again!
Also, they have a lovely Brasserie just across the street for the one night the restaurant is closed which I think might have been Sunday? Look for that review as well....great experience there as well.
Thank you Savelburg!
