“Very good, but a bit expensive”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Very nice castle that gives an history of the village and how the noble people lived there in the past. The entrance fee is a bit high for what you get in return if you compare it to other attractions in the vicinity

“THE landmark of Doorwerth”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Very nice castle in excellent state.
What i liked was the nice castle bar, which was self service, but the scenery is so authentic as well as the snacks (good frsh quality) you can get here, that this one is a must do when you're in the area.

“A nice little castle is you are in the area... but it is NOT a hotel...”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

We walked around the grounds of the castle, and it looked pretty cute, but we can't speak for the interior because we didn't get in. There was a coffee shop there which we didn't try, but the coffee shop staff was helpful in getting us an explanation for our dilemma....
We were late getting to this castle..... Our late arrival was due to two reasons... first it is hard to find as the signs are not too good to get to it.... also, we (mistakenly) thought we were staying here.
I guess the caveat here is get the page translated so you can understand it, and make the call yourself. We had searched for castle hotels and found the Bilderber Kasteel Doorwerth... for a reasonable price. Cool! So we asked our previous night's hotel desk to make us a (prepaid) reservation.
The Bilderberg hotel chain does indeed have a facility at the castle... for wedding receptions, but not as a hotel. THAT hotel was about a half an hour away, much to our chagrin and disappointment. Yes, we should have asked more questions when booking, but the site could have made it easier to find it in English and made it plainer that in spite of finding it under castle hotels, you can't stay there.

“Lovely Castle - mean staff!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

We were late arriving at the castle as it is poorly signposted and we got lost. It was 4:30 and the castle museum closed at 5:00 but they did not offer a decent discount on the entrance fee. However, you can see a lot from the outside and the terrace restaurant is in a lovely setting for a drink and a snack. They have a visiting theatre company performing Romeo and Juliet in June 2013. Certainly a place I will bring visitors to.

“An fairy tale castle”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

This castle is close to my home and my heart. It has a very old and large tree in the court yard. The exhibition show how the castle was build, remodelled and rebuild after the war. Great restaurant and lovely situated near a forrest. Great for the family.
