Recently converted from a Ursuline convent school. Fabulous sweeping wooden staircase dominates the central part of the hotel. A good bar on the ground floor. A decent breakfast with good coffee served on the first floor. Busy when we there on a Thursday but very efficient staff looked after us well. The bedrooms are very good with superb double bed and excellent quality bedding. Very quiet but disappointingly unable to open the windows. A/c was not obtrusive. Quirky bathroom and good rainfall shower. Centrally located with underground car park. Sittard has a typical Limburg town square with a good choice of restaurants. Good stop over and highly recommended.
