When you drive around Roermond -- you will see signs for the Hotel Dux all over. There are so many signs that I thought the hotel can't be *that* good... but I was wrong.
Location / Parking: very good. Pretty close to the outlet -- totally walkable (perhaps 10 to 15 minutes from the center of the outlet). I had a car -- so I didn't get to experience the walk. The hotel has parking in the basement. You take a car elevator down to the basement. There is space only for about 6 to 7 cars -- thus, you should reserve a spot when you book your hotel room. It cost 15 euros a night. However, the check in lady mentioned there was free parking a short drive away.
Room: AMAZING. Huge. Spacious. Bed was very good (on the firm side). Bathroom was huge, modern, clean. Ultra comfort is what you get.
Pets: are allowed. I didn't have a pet -- but another room on my floor did. The walls weren't exactly thin -- but I could hear a dog howling every now and then.
Dinner: in the brasserie was pretty good. I wouldn't say mind blowing food -- but okay. My cod & couscous was a little too oily. The crispy fish skin arrived a little soggy. Dessert wasn't that great -- I didn't finish it. I'd give it a B.
Breakfast: had the basics: all kinds of bread, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, super mini muffins, juice, etc. The great thing was I came down at 10am (ending time for breakfast) -- and they didn't rush to keep the food. That's always nice.
All things were amazing (minus the mediocre dinner) -- up until 12:02 pm (check out time). I was zipping up my luggage and the phone rang. The lady asked me when I was checking out and HAD to tell me that they had to clean the rooms. Yeah, I know. Not like I'm trying to take advantage of the hotel. I thought it was a little poor taste to call at 12:02 -- perhaps 12:15 or 12:30 would make a little more sense. When I went down -- there was no one. No one at the 'front desk' -- and no guests waiting for a room. So I didn't understand the need to make a guest feel rushed.
Otherwise, this place is a gem! I would totally stay here again!!
