“Quirky hotel, excellent staff”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

We travelled to Roermond with friends and to enjoy Carnaval with my step-daughter and her boyfriend who live in the city.
The hotel is well situated, just a 5 min walk from the centre of town, but in a very quiet location. There is free secure parking on site.
The staff were wonderful: polite; friendly; helpful and more than willing to recommend other restaurants. Although we were told that we couldn't go into the restaurant in fancy dress, they had no problem with us coming and going in an assortment of daft get-ups!
The rooms were very comfortable, retaining the essence of the prison, although I would have liked a door for the toilet (there are some things that one prefers to do in private!).
Breakfast was excellent, a lovely choice of bread, pastries, cheese and meat, cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, sausage, bacon and scrambled egg on the buffet, various other egg dishes cooked to order and as much tea or coffee as you can drink.
We ate in the restaurant twice and whilst it's a tad on the expensive side, it was absolutely delicious and very well presented. The waiting staff even wear gloves to handle cutlery and crockery!

Nice, friendly and modern hotel that makes you smile. Enjoyed our stay here when visiting family and were surprised by the quality and service. Nice room (#012) which was three former cells combined, with a great shower but NO bathroom door... Really? Send your roommate for a walk when you need to do your no. 2's.

It's an ex prison and this mood it's the inspiration of the hotel. Rooms are very particular, as they are 3 small jail cell connected: a small lounge, a bedroom and the bathroom. A pity the bedroom TV set was not working. Following the mood they have a cold atmosphere too. In addition there''s a "fake drug sachet" as amenity: funny but cheap. The restaurant in an elegant design room; it offers a sort of nouvelle cuisine, with a lot of sample dishes. It's a bit expensive, but a way to try something different. It's in the centre of the city and 5 min. walking to the outlet. It's my second time here: the staff is very gentle and professional as usual.

As mentioned in other reviews this hotel is a converted prison. We were in a comfort double room which was very spacious and was originally 3 prison cells.
We traveled with our baby and this hotel was very baby friendly. All staff was very friendly and helpful too.
Breakfast was very varied.
Dinner, we ordered the 4 and the 5 course menu and it was lovely food, however the steak was very salty and we did think that it was a bit pricey for what it was. However eating a la carte looked even more expensive.

Definitely stay here if you need to stay overnight in Roermond!

A brilliant contemporary conversion of a prison, opened in 2011.
Reception staff were excellent, helpful and efficient. We stayed 2 nights as we went to the Floriade in nearby Venlo. Staff assisted in advising the best way to get there, as I was considering getting a train. They suggested using our car, as a new road system had been built and it was very straight forward. They were spot on.
Deluxe Cell 2 is a good size with a large, comfortable double bed. It has separate duvets, which we liked. Good storage, a safe, coffee maker, decent size TV and two easy chairs add to the comforts.
TV had a few English speaking channels which was a pleasant surprise.
The 'corridor-shaped' bathroom has a super shower, a large shallow sink and a toilet, in that order, if you get the picture.
The room is on the ground floor and has large picture windows on two sides. These look onto two outside, public spaces - a corridor between
the room and restaurant, and the terrace. White blinds are provided for
privacy. These appear to allow you to look out but block anyone looking in. Curtains also offer a good blackout.
We found this hotel on Tripadvisor, so I am aware of some reviews,
particularly regarding the restaurant.
Our only gripe was in that direction. It may have been a misunderstanding due to broken English, but the waitress gave us the impression only 4,5, or 6 couse menus were available. Although she had what I thought were the menus in her arms, she did not give them to us, but proceeded to tell us the content of the 4 course menu.
She was happy to alter some of those courses due to dislikes.
As it turned out, apart from those courses, 3 appetisers were included as well as a good portion of bread. Courses could be considered small, but we were struggling with dessert by the end.
While waiting for our first course, a person I believed to be the restaurant manager brought something to the table. I then queried whether there was an a la carte menu. There was, and she produced the full list of menus. I explained what had happened and she offered to cancel our original order if we wanted ALC. We declined.
Here is the gripe, and thereby the loss of one star. By this time we had been in the restaurant for at least 45 minutes, without anything to eat. We couldn't bear waiting any longer.
Bread isn't delivered until the first course, so we couldn't even nibble on that. Our first appetiser arrived about an hour from when we first sat down. Service was painfully slow. From first entering, to finishing desserts, took 2 hours 20 minutes and, again, that's including an hour
when we didn't eat anything. We declined coffee!
Having said all that, the food was very good.
Breakfast too was excellent with a good selection, which also included freshly cooked dishes if you wanted them. Special mention to Yvonne V.B. who was serving at breakfast on our first morning. She was bright and cheerful and most helpful.
We'd certainly try this 'prison' again if in the region, and just hope dinner service was a blip.

Room Tip: Our bathroom had a plain glass door, so privacy maybe an issue for some. In fact the door was a bit...

Very nice hotel with beautifully decorated rooms and lovely bathrooms in a very authentic building with lots of character. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice and the service outstanding, staff very helpful and friendly. Location also close to town and an easy distance walking to the designer outlet shops, free parking a bonus! Price a bit on the high side but you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Our de luxe room 24 had a nice vieuw of the outside courtyard!
