I enjoyed my stay here. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Room was good.

Their Premium Free internet was not so great.. I had to try all night to get my VPN to stay up long enough to down load some files.

Business trip - check in was fast and efficient. Used the excellent courtesy shuttle bus in the mornings and for my return trips over the 4 days. Hotel close to my work with free wifi and room service when required all added up to an enjoyable experience. I always stay at this hotel and my work colleagues also when they visit Utrecht. Very nice helpful staff throughout the hotel.

One small glitch on arrival when the hotel had no record of my reservation despite me providing a paper copy. On this occasion no problem since there was plenty of rooms available but this is not what you want after a long drive and a day in the office.

That said, the staff were extremely efficient and friendly. My room was clean, tidy with a comfy bed. Bathroom was a little dated but no complaints all in all I would stay here again.

Good choice for breakfast and evening meals all well presented.

The hotel is away from Utrecht centre and my only problem was with the in car sat-nav which would send me in all directions.....very frustrating for an overseas visitor.

If you are in Utrecht for shopping, bars & cafes then consider staying in the city centre. Very impressed with Utrecht and I will return.

Really enjoy staying in the Carlton for business, Frank in the bar keeps you entertained when staying solo and the food is great. Im a little lazy so I haven't hit the fitness room but I hear it is very good.

The service is excellent and the shuttle bus is very handy when travelling in themmornings and evenings.
II have stayed twice and would recommend this hotel. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Positioned on the boundary of Utrecht and Maarsen this is a Pleasent and well appointed hotel. Hotel has everything you need and The Restaurant is populated by locals as well as guests. Rich menu. Plus for this hotel is that it is on a main bus route with the 37 travelling between Maarssen and Utrecht railway stations. And if you do not fancy public transport then you can book the hotel shuttle at peak time to Maarssen station and local business. Really helpful and friendly staff make for an effortless stay. I stay here regularly when I travel to the area.

This hotel is local to my company office although it is the first time I have stayed there. The staff are professional and very friendly. The evening bar man is a good host and remembered my drink and room number the following day.
The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. I will certainly stay there again.

A pleasantly appointed hotel quite near the city of Utrecht. The rooms are very spacious and so are the washrooms. If you're they type that's allergic to traffic noise - the hotel is not situated near high speed roads - so its rather quiet - and even more so - if you choose a room facing away from the roads. The dining options are good - to above average. What must be given a complement is the maintenance of the property - that definitely stands above much of the competition in the area. The only let down was the pool - which is more of a jacuzzi with a pillar in the middle taking up most of the space. It is seriously small - so i would not recommend planning a dip.
