“Let there be light !”
Reviewed 14 June 2008

The trouble with our room at this Hotel was that it was so dark you could barely read a book. It was just about big enough, the bathroom was fine if a bit on the simple side, but someone had decided to decorate everything in shades of dark blue and coupled this with terrible lighting.

However, we quickly discovered that the hotel restaurant was the best in town and very popular with the locals (quite reasonably priced too). Breakfast was good with a plentiful buffet and some hot food as well.

Close to the market square, the hotel is a short stroll to the centre of this very pretty provincial Dutch town.

The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.

Reviewed 8 May 2008

While the facade is truly impresive and the main common areas are charmful and rustic, the lodging is mainly in an annex that grows at the back of the estate and beyond.


We stayed in room 11 which is located after a long corridor in the dark dungeon of the basement. The room is gloomy because there is little light (even though the day was bright). Since you are below the ground level the window leads to the road level in an alley where all passers by steal your little intimacy. To be fair the room is spacious. However the carpet is old, stained and smelly. A single wardrobe which makes Ikea look sturdy is the only storage room available. The toilet is roomy and renovated.
