Saillant Hotel Gulpen
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Gulpen
Reviewed 19 March 2013

We spend a weekend in Limburg and stayed at this hotel. The room was ok but really very small, with a very odd and interesting bed with lots of pluche. It slept well. Lots of 'antique' wood everywhere to add to the rustic atmosphere. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant. It was ok but really simple and not special at all. We slept well even though it was a Saturday night and we were situated on the street side. Breakfast was good and pleasant. So it was ok, not special and fit for use.

Upon arrival we were told that the hotel has no parking facilities and that we had to park 'around the corner'.
We paid a surcharge for a luxury upgrade room.
The room was rather small on the back, overlooking a not so tidy roof & backally, bathroom poorly lit, cabinet too small for hanging clothes & coat for 2 persons.
The lobby bar has no list of drinks available and charges 8 € for a cava, we got 2 complete different sparkling wines served (1 sweet & 1 brut)
The dinner was of very good qualitylevel (merits a Michelin rank) but the serving personnel seemed understaffed
The breakfast was of equal level, egg holders lacked, abundent choice of bread specialties.

The hotel is renamed in "Saillant Hotel Gulpen".
Enjoyable stay in an upgrade room (called "suite", which it wasn't). Small bathroom, but okay.
Large room. Too small a TV to watch it lying in bed. Good breakfast and helpful personnel.
We had room 15 (on the front). Heavy traffic early in the morning. Tough when you sleep with open windows. Room17(!) seem to be pretty nice. Excellent located and strting point for walkings and cycling in the area.

Room Tip: (Free) Parking on the back of the hotel (in living area of the village)

My wife and I stayed here for two nights with a groupon deal, which included a 5 course diner.
It's located in the center of Gulpen. Therefore you need to be lucky if you find a parking spot in front of the hotel. Otherwise you need to park in a residential area.
I have a suspicion that because of the groupon deal we got a room the furthest away: 311. The (free) wifi signal doesn't come that far. The room has 2 single beds with for me a perfect soft mattress. My wife though didn't like that at all.
Tv with plenty of channels. Small bathroom with a surprising spacey shower. No airco, just opening the 2 windows must do the cooling trick.
Breakfast is normal. It would be good if they had fresh orange juice and fresh sliced fruit instead of the canned fruit.
The 5 course surprise meal is quite ok. Nice touch is that the sous-chef is serving the food.
Very nice staff! Although this is quite normal in The Netherlands.
All in all a nice stay with this deal.

The hotel is situated in the heart of Gulpen. From the hotel you can make beautiful walks through the fantastic landscape of Limburg.

The rooms are average and the breakfast is standard. They refurnished the rooms but with materials of a simple quality. Our bathroom was old but clean, the bed was fine. Price/quality is fine.

We booked this hotel via a Groupon deal. On arrival we were very pleased to discover we'd been upgraded to the comfort room on the top floor. It's a nice room and the beds were very comfortable. Unlike other guests we didn't find the hotel noisy.

Dinner was part of our deal and it started with well with our starters and drinks on the table within 15 minutes. However we had to wait 90 minutes for our main course! My husband went to the kitchen to ask what had happened as the restaurant staff had disappeared. It turned out our order hadn't been given through to the kitchen. When it came the portions were miniscule. Just 4 fries! But no apology or compensation was offered. One of the inexperienced waiters came over and said it was front-of-house's fault, as if that was supposed to make us feel better!

Several other couples were looking equally dissatisfied as they waited for their desserts. Our desserts took about an hour to arrive at which point my husband went to the kitchen for the 2nd time. We were thorougly annoyed by then and our evening had been ruined.

I am not one of those people who takes delight in finding fault but there is something seriously wrong with staff morale at this hotel. Restaurant staff seem inexperienced and lacking leadership.

Breakfast was better service-wise, although on Sunday they did seem overwhelmed with the amount of visitors. I am pretty sure I won't return which is a shame because with some more attention to detail it could be a nice boutique hotel.

Room Tip: Comfort room on floor 3 is quiet and relatively spacious.
