Hotel de Sterrenberg
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Otterlo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Sterrenberg under the watchful eyes of stuffed Eland head above the fireplace! The rooms were ultra chic design, making the most of a tight space which is a very Dutch thing. The staff were welcoming and we had a lovely meal in the restaurant the first night though it was a bit pricey. Alice had hare, I fish and there were lots of game and dessert options - very creative cheffery. We headed out early in a blustery late October morning to the national park which was a stroll up the road, got the "free" bikes - it cost 30 or so euros to enter the park plus museum fee - and had a fantastic day in both the park with its landscape - yer there were hills -- in Holland. And the sculpture park and museum which is excellent if you are into Van Gogh, and early modern abstract painters.
So the boutique hotel wasn't too crowded when we were there - I can imagine it getting pretty busy in summer.

Room Tip: I'd book early for spring/summer visits.

I tried to submit a review when we stayed there Sept. 18, but I don't think the review went through.
I didn't complete the final page.

We were very happy with our stay - the decor is a decorator's dream; the room was clean, comfortable, and quiet; and the breakfast buffet was beyond description: fresh fruit, pastries, fresh squeezed orange juice, in addition to the usual assortment which were all a cut above the
ordinary.

Inge went beyond all expectation in trying to help us locate what we thought was a lost wallet.
She made calls to the restaurant in Voorburg and to the cousin we'd taken there to lunch. We
were grateful to find it on second searching of our car, but our impression of the hotel was
sealed by her concern and patience. The manager was also conscientious and courteous as he served us. Someone even helped me with my new cell phone so I could use the email function. It was a thoroughly lovely experience. We're only sorry we could stay just one night.

Room Tip: I think we had room 26.

This a nice and friendly design hotel. The rooms are good, the pool is nice, the restaurant may however be too pricy for your appetite. I found so. But great for a drink and you can have a cheaper, and less refined, meal in town. Or town? Otterlo is really really boring so come for the nature here and the direct access to the museum.

An earlier reviewer described the hotel as an 'oasis'. I agree. It is a lovely little hotel, with excellent facilities, customer service and a really nice feel about it. Otterlo itself is also a lovely little village.

The breakfast we had was one of the best we had in Europe and we also made good use of the fantastic swimming pool and gym.

The hotel is literally on the doorstep of the Hoge Veluwe so was a great spot to explore the park from.

Would definitely stay here again - preferably for longer than the one night we had!

We had been in a few cities before arriving in the small village of Otterlo and were so happy to experience the trees and outdoor feeling of Hotel Sterrenberg. It is located right near the entrance to the Hoge Veluwe National Park and a fabulous property. We were warmly welcomed told about the serving times for breakfast and the hours for the dining room. The hotel is modern and decorated in warm earthy colors with lovely touches of contrasting decor. The deluxe room was spacious with a small sofa and a chair, robes and slippers were provided and bathroom amenities. Also, a bottle of water on a tray with glasses. The towels and condition of the robes seemed out of character for the other offerings and surroundings. The bedding was lovely and a very comfortable bed. The bathrooms are beautiful with double designer type sinks and a bathtub. There is a "library" seating area on the second floor where you can read and have tea or coffee, which is provided. There is also a cold drink machine for a fee. Dinner was fabulous and the presentation perfect. Breakfast was plentiful with all the usual European fare including hot scrambled eggs. An coffee machine is available to make your own personal type of coffee that you might prefer; black, with milk, etc. Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night, I would have loved to stay for three.

We spent 2 nights here in September. The swimming pool and spa were pristine and spacious, the restaurant serves fine meals in pleasant surroundings. The chef´s menu for two cost more than the room, but that was in part because we received a good deal for booking last minute. The games area upstairs has free excellent coffee and tea service. The bar area has a unique modern gas fireplace and a grand piano.
All the staff were friendly and helpful. Bicycle rental was 10 euros. Much better to rent a high quality bike than to use the white museum bikes in the national park nearby. From Sterrenberg we went to the picturesque Hampshire Hotel in Zutphen--a disappointing change.

The Hotel Sterrenberg is top-notch. The hotel is beautifully and thoughtfully decorated with a nature theme that trends more toward hip than earthy. Our room, though not overly large, was very comfortable and it was nice to have a balcony to sit on (even though we overlooked the parking lot). Good bath and tolietries. Fantastic terrace and dining area (both inside and out). Food was excellent, especially the starters. Attentive service everywhere. If you have your bathing suit take advantage of the pool and the wellness centre -- fantastic sauna, steam rooms, etc. Spent an hour in there after five days straight of cycling. Loved it! Also, a safe place was provided where you could lock up your bikes for the night. We only stayed one night but I could've happily stayed longer. Just a stone's throw from the National Park Hoge Veluwe and the Kroller-Muller museum.
