“Classic hotel with wonderful ambience. Great VFM!”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

Had to go to Venlo on business so looked on TA and found this hotel. It seemed to get good reviews but I was surprised at how good the Wilhelmina was. Lovely old interior with atmospheric lighting. The bar is part of the restaurant area making drinking and eating a very relaxing experience. Food quality really good as well as being very location authentic. The pork and beef dishes we had would be fine in any expensive restaurant.

Service was top class and they gave me their honeymoon suite at single room rates!

Would I go back? ....... Lets hope my business in the region grows!

Room Tip: No swimming pool so ignore the rating

Stayed here for 3 nights with friends to visit Floriade. I have rated this Hotel as excellent because that is just what it was. We had room 210 which was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Bathroom was good with plenty of hot water from shower.
Hotel staff were courteous and helpful at all times. Breakfast was very good and we ate in the Hotel restaurant on our first night which was superb at very reasonable prices.
Our journey to Venlo was by train from Schipol Airport via Eindhoven and I have to stay Dutch railways put our rail travel to shame. On time, clean comfortable and plenty of seating. What a pleasure!

Room Tip: We had room 210 which was facing the road and station but was reasonably quiet..

Our room was quite small for 3 adults. Basic decor and supplies. Shower had great water pressure. We stayed here for one night only for our visit to floriade. It is very convenient to station for easy bus ride to floriade. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was delicious and very reasonable prices. Wait staff very pleasant and helpful with english translation of dishes. Continental breakfast was fantastic. It seemed a bit weird to have to walk through the breakfast room to get to our hotel room, but being an old hotel, I dont know that anything can be done about that. Even though the windows in our room looked out to the rear carpark on one side and the side driveway on the other, we didn't have any problem with car noise. Overall, what the room lacks in presentation, the restaurant and food in this hotel makes it a worthwhile stay.

Location of the hotel is good as one can take the bus from the train station to visit Floriade. The room is basic and and small, but OK for just for sleeping. The service is efficient and the kitchen staff will also act as the receptionists. The free parking in the back of the hotel is also secure and easy to go in and out.

Couldn't be better location - opposite the train station & short bus journey to the Floriade. Our room was clean, but simple. We had booked the 'package' with breakfast & dinner. The meal was one of the most delicious we have EVER eaten at a hotel. Only a couple of choices but absolutely lovely. Would highly recommend & very good value.

Room Tip: Do book a package which includes dinner - absolutely wonderful food, expensive if not part of your d...

Reviewed 17 June 2012

As previous reviewers have said, this is an older Hotel across the street from the railway station and the location is excellent, especiallly this year for visiting the Floriade Festival. I always think when reviewing an older, in town hotel some allowances should be made, and I feel some previous reviewers have been a little unfair. Our room although not large was perfectly adequate, it faced the railway station, but was quiet, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was a good size with an excellent shower over the bath and was well equipped with toiletries and a hairdryer. There are no tea or coffee making facilities, which in my opinion is a mistake, which could easily be remedied and make an extra improvement to the hotel. There is free wifi which was very effficient and an elevator to higher floors. There is free parking at the rear of the hotel. The breakfast was included in the room price and had plenty of hot and cold choices, although the scambled egg is to be avoided, the rest was good. We stayed here for two nights and ate in the hotel restaurant both nights. The food was excellent though rather expensive and there is not a very extensive choice after 6 pm, but it was convenient. We found all of the staff to be very pleasant and helpful especially RENS, who went out of his way to help us, his english is flawless which was a great bonus. I did think the hotel was expensive for what we got, given the two previous nights we had stayed at an excellent Best Western also in the centre of Town, at Emmelloord for 40 euro a night less, but maybe they are cashing in on Floriade here, and as it only happens every 10 years, I suppose we can't blame them. Would we stay here again, overall probably not, but on this occasion it suited our purpose and we don't really have any major complaints.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor and it was quiet.

Hotel was near Venlo station which was a 2 mins walk and that was why we decided to stay. Asked for early checkin but not available so left our bags at counter...staff was not so helpful.

Room was big although we asked for a double room and had basic amenities. Shower was OK and room was clean which was what we needed after a long day at Floriade. We did not have dinner in the restaurant as it was quite full at about 7pm and we ate in venlo town instead.

Breakfast was simple and the bacon strips were too tough.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the main road as there are traffic in front.
