Charme Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Oosterhout
Reviewed 23 April 2013

I booked my room on a very cheap deal with booking.com, so cost wise, no complaints.

A few years ago, the hotel has been taken over by Charme Hotels, and some small renovations been done to refresh it a bit. But if you expect a romantic luxury place, you may be disappointed.

I would position this hotel as functional and a central location in Oosterhout, very good if you want a late night in town. Everything in walking distance.

Summary of my findings:
- Check-in: Swift and friendly staff
- Room: Bit basic room but beds comfortable. It was clean but some small water spots on the wall due to water leakage from the bath on the other side...
- Bathroom: Functional with shower in bath. Good water pressure.
- Internet: Free fixed cable, wifi free but only available in lobby or restaurant
- Parking: You can get a parking card for 2.50 per day at the reception. Normal fee is 1.80 per hour
- The restaurant & Cafe:Breakfast was actually not bad, with nice omelet and more than enough choice.
The restaurant had special deals: 10 euro for a steak menu. I haven't tried it.
The cafe was quiet and I just ordered a glass of wine to take back to the room.
As you are in the center of town, suggest to have a drink in the many cafe's around the market square.

Around the hotel:
Walking distance to the shops, market square and many many cafe's and restaurants.
Great cafe with a sunny terrace out of the wind is De Shout or the cafes opposite. One minute walk from the hotel.

Tip: Every first Sunday of the month, all the shops are open.

I will be returning here again when staying in Oosterhout.
It is convenient, plus to be honest, it is one of the better options you have of the few hotels around. There is another Golden Tulip near the motorway next to a Mac Donalds which is more a Motel. I stayed there once but too far away from everything, too basic and no atmosphere at all.

Hope you find my findings useful:)

Room Tip: The rooms at the back side in the weekend are more quiet...

Where do I start? This hotel has 4 stars but, I think that 2 or 3 stars is a far better rating! The mirror in the bathroom was really filthy, you have to leave on the light in the hall to use the power outlet and there was no WiFi in the rooms (the site said that it was present but in reality it's not!). It was not possible to use the shower in the bath because the whole room would flood in a few minutes! Peace and quiet? No, you can here your neighbors bathroom and toilet like it was next to you pillow! The only good thing was the staff and the breakfast. (Note: I think that the hotel and it's bar/restaurant aren't doing that well: for the bar and the restaurant where only two people on a saturday evening and I didn't see much staff for the breakfast either).

On business for one night, rooms clean and good size. Good for five minute walk in town centre with some good bars and restaurants. However, suggest you drink beer outside hotel, as two pints of beer cost 19 euros, about £7.50 per pint !

The hotel shares its entrance with a nursing home. The part of the hotel where our group was staying also looked like it might have been a converted nursing home. Rooms were functional, almost spartan. The beds were okay, but the rest of the room was furnished with cheap furniture in an unsuccessfull attempt to look stylish. The bathroom was a barebones affair which may have looked good in the nineties, but was longing for a renovation. There was no wireless internet connection available.
Staff was okay, but not overly friendly. The location is dreary. Not that it looks run down, it's just that the view is either the nursing home or the uninteresting parking lot.
If you plan to stay here, please avoid the restaurant for diner. The vegetarian dish I had was palatable, but the meats of the other people in the group were undercooked. The fish should have been left in the sea. Breakfast and lunch were okay, although they ran out of several items during both meals. The kitchen just does not seem to be able to handle this number of people.
I can only recommend this place to people who need a place to stay for Carnival.

The staff was not interested in the customers checking in and repeatedly made nasty remarks about the customers waiting in line to check in.
Rooms could have been ok, IF they would have been cleaned properly. The toilet still needed to be flushed....
Never again!

Golden Tulip Oosterhout was a lovely surprise in the centre of a pleasant town.
It was in a very quiet location. We had a beautiful room and bathroom, very clean.
The hotel was situated near shops and restaurants. Very convenient.
The staff was friiendly and very helpful.
Oosterhout is very near to Breda, a beautiful town, well worth visiting.
The hotel was nicely decorated, especially the breakfast-and diningroom.
We would recommend this hotel to everybody!!!

This hotel is fine for a short stay in Oosterhout. The town is close to Breda and only half an hour away from Eindhoven airport. The rooms are clean and smoke-free. The bathroom has a deep bath with shower screen and hairdryer. If there could be a criticism about the room I would say the tv could be updated to flat screen and their towels could be a more generous size! The buffet breakfast is nothing to write home about and the waiter had to be asked to replenish some items. Breakfast is quite expensive for what you get. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a long weekend as a base for visiting the local area.
