We stayed in the hotel with 8 couples on a golf arrangement. On arrival after having played golf we were received professionally and personally escorted to our room where a clear explanation of all features was given. The evening then started with a welcome cocktail served on one of the terraces outside where a special table had been set up.... More

We - unfortunately - did not have the chance to spend the night although we are sure that would have been very pleasant. But the lunch we enjoyed - in the garden - was very good. Excellent friendly and attentive service, a plain wooden garden table that was decked out for us with beautiful table linnen. Nice plates and table... More

The De Havixhorst is one of the most memorable, comfortable and hospitable places I have ever lodged in 40 years of business travel. I have stayed for about 20 nights in the last 20 years. Arrival is a delight. A large, welcoming firegrate warms the driveway and then you look up and see the classic architecture of the mid-18thC main... More

We came here as part of a biking tour. We rode through Meppen and while a delightful town filled with real people going about their business in the work a day world, we had no reason to expect this gem, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. It has an active catering business and we were quickly brought back to the... More

we had a groupon special booked in this hotel. Lovelly chateau with big rooms, bit dark and only a few lights but a giant bathroom. Didn't sleep that well, good improve beds. Even when it was freezing outside the rooms were still warm. The deal included a 5 course dinner. We didn't know what to expect but we were surprised... More

We stayed in the castle with a five course dinner in december 2012 and it was fabulous. The surroundings are a bit boring if you are a young couple. But for a love weekend it is very good. The suite was nice, the food and service (also breakfast) very good.

Everything is perfect. The only minor is the loudness from other rooms coming into your room.

We were recommended to this Hotel by a Dutch colleague. This place is a real gem, only 6 bedrooms in an old historic building, beautiful gardens and wonderful food. Would love to return in better weather. It rained all weekend.

We stayed one night in Havixhorst. The rooms were very warm and not airconditioned. The bathroom spacious, but no window. Not a luxurious bathroom, but nothing wrong with it. The mattresses were very soft. Breakfast wonderful, dinner absolutely stunning. Would highly recommend, although it is not cheap at all.

Beautiful building and surroundings, fine restaurant and nice wine list. Rooms are simple and without any extra’s, the bathroom was not very clean 175 euro per person for a room with breakfast is no value for money.
