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:)
