It’s the “old fashioned” locks of using a key. I had a hard time taking the key out. You'll have to make sure it lines up somehow to get the key out. It must have either been me or my lock was wonky. When leaving the hotel, I left my key at the reception as I didn't have room in my small bag. It was just easier.
The hotel is located in a quiet, clean neighbourhood. The first evening I went out and walked around the area. I loved the houses here. After my walk, I went to the bar and relaxed with a glass of wine. There is a cozy fireplace.
In the lobby is an old grandfather clock.
In the women’s washroom, you’ll have small white cloth to dry your hands. I like that idea. Good for the environment.
The hotel is about a minute walk to Het Loo Palace. I wish I had the time to see the palace.
The walk to town is about 20 -30 minutes. I saw the public bus go by the hotel so I imagine it's going to town.
In about a 10 minute walk there is a statue called “A Man with Two Hats”. The exact same statue is found in Ottawa, Ontario in Canada in Commissioner’s Park. It symbolizes the friendship of Canada and the Netherlands that goes back during World War II when the Dutch royal family sought refuge in Canada.
