I stayed here for two nights during my business stay in the area, and found it very comfortable. There were big and modern rooms with very spacious batrooms. The big size bed was really nice, and the view from the panoramic windows was to a park in front of the hotel. There you could also see the barges and ships passing through in the close by canal. The breakfast was served in a nice and modern restaurant, and I did not miss anything. The staff was friendly, and I recommend this hotel for anyone in need of comfort, space, silence and a good night sleep :-)

This hotel is located a bit from everything, but close enough to Dordrecht to be useful for business visits. Rooms are spacious and nice, restaurant reasonably good.
In summer the rooms are hot, as there is no A/C. The people in the reception are very helpful.

We stayed here for one night at the end of July after a long ferry journey. We were pleasantly greeted by friendly and helpful staff and had a very pleasant nights stay.
Our room was large, clean and very comfortable.
The hotel offers a good range of free toileteries and we had an excellent light meal and drinks out on the terrace.
We enjoyed a walk along the river next to the hotel and would have taken advantage of the bike rental available on site if we had stayed longer.
The swimming pool and sauna were very clean and quiet just right for an early morning dip! The location for us was perfect for a one night stay but I could imagine that if you were staying for longer you may find it a little out of the way.
We would stay again.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the car park which would find but requesting a riverside room would give a much nicer view.

We had a car so chose to stay initially due to the hotel having a free car park on site, but it turned out to be a slice of luxury! Loved the friendly staff, excellent layout of everything, the swimming pool which was heated just right, the sauna, the huge breakfast, the super comfy beds, the luxurious room and bathroom, the lift to the room, and the view of the river from the spacious balcony. Can't say enough about this great place. We liked it so much we booked an extra night.

The location was far from the city centre but that was not a problem as we had a car.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room.

The hotel was in a beautiful setting (quite remote but we were on a cycling trip & it was perfect for that), the rooms were lovely with huge bathrooms, all the public rooms were nice, we had a lovely dinner & breakfast, the staff were friendly & helpful and accommodating of our late night games in the bar – everything was perfect (except our bar bill – we perhaps should have drunk less  ) - & all for a very reasonable price

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have river view, its great to watch the traffic on the water, but you can also do that from the public rooms and terrace. The rooms at the back overlook the car park but they are great rooms anyway and it's not a bad view and it's very quiet anyway
