“Needs improvement”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for one night - which was more than enough! We obtained a voucher to stay at this hotel for free and we only had to pay for breakfast. I'm not sure how much a nights stay should be but I'm glad we did not have to pay! The hotel is tired, dirty and outdated, there is a horrible smell throughout the hotel which can only be described as a damp smell. The rooms were not the cleanest and the bed was very uncomfortable.
On the plus side, the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was fairly good with a varied selection. The surrounding area is very beautiful and only a short drive to the nearby national park where you can use recycled bikes for free.
This hotel is ideal for someone on a tight budget or who can live with stained sheets and a leaking radiator but it wasn't for me I'm afraid.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

Good Dutch cooking and plenty of it. Restaurant is comfortable with a good choice from two menus. Very welcoming, good beer, nice place to sit, eat and drink with friends.
Did not stay here, but will do next time.

Stayed here whilst on a work trip. Hotel clean throughout and restaurant / bar area lovely. Rooms a bit tired, with an odd smell to them. Clean towels provided daily and rooms always made up nicely. No tea/coffee facilities which is something I'm used to seeing in hotel rooms - would be well worth investing in for the rooms. Quite a lot of noise from outside which is worth bearing in mind if you're looking for somewhere quiet. Breakfast very basic.

Stayed at this hotel for one night! Good parking facilities. No real reception-area. Keys are handed out from the bar. No lift, wich can be a problem for some people. At a glance the hotel looks o.k, but it shows signs of neglect in maintenence. Carpets in the room are warnout and in some places coverd in burnmarks from cigaretts, lightbulb in bathroom missing, just minor things wich can be overseen for a one-nightstay. The hotel needs a real good cleaning and a redecoration to get it back to a modern standard. One the plus, we were very supprised about the good choice in meals, and we've enjoyed a good dinner that night, at good prices.
Rooms at the main and side road, when windows left open, some traficnoise, but not a real issue.
Good breakfast, nothing fancy but pleanty to get you started for a new day. So if you want a place to stay, want a nice meal and need nothing out of the ordinary, this hotel is all-right. If you stay longer and like some comfort in a somewhat luxurios athmosphere, you might reconsider.

I went here in late september 2011 with 4 friends on a cycling weekend. The hotel had to be a low budget hotel (+/- 45 eur/person/night including breakfast). Large and clean room unfortunately with a strange smell that regularly goes with old rooms. Interior in the rooms is outdated. Breakfast offered sufficient choice.
Hotel staff was friendly and competent, other than a rather uninterested student (?) who served clients on the outside terrace.
Sufficient parking space.
Restaurant seemed to be fully booked when we were there. We didn't have dinner but had lunch twice. Quality of food very good. No complaints at all.
We were able to securely store our bikes in a locked garage during night. Overall a good experience and taken into account the price paid we were definitely satisfied.
