Super warm welcome from the owner who made sure that I knew where I could help myself to coffee whenever I wanted, how to get out and back into the hotel (it really is so much more than a B&B), quick tour of the breakfast room (which was the chapel used by former inmates).
I had a super room the Italian Warden's room- large and comfy double bed with ensuite shower room, no door but travelling on my own for business so not an issue. It was very hot the night I stayed (34 deg C) and as the windows are the original prison ones they only open slightly so a fan was the only thing missing.
This place is quirky, stylish, and definitely boutique retaining so many original details (the front door and the cell doors being some of my favourite features), think this it my most favourite B&B ever.
Go and experience it for yourself if you are in Almelo, you won't regret a night in the 'house of detention'.
Great location, plenty of restaurants a few steps awayfor evening dining,
