My girlfriend and I wanted to take a little break from the city-life and spend some quite-time together. We then found the Chateau de Raay online and after seeing the pictures we immediately booked a night for the same day. After an 2 hour drive we arrived at the Chateau (It was a bit complicated to actually get to the... More

I absolutely love this hotel! Staff is always friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept in! Excellent restaurant as well. Highly recommended. Very quiet out of the way place.

Created from an old Dutch castle, this beautiful boutique hotel is worth the diversion. I have stayed here many times over the last 15 years and despite changing ownership, the hotel continues to be a favorite of mine. The atrium restaurant is totally unique in my experience and the breakfast is fantastic. Try a fresh baked croissant, you will not... More

Always like staying at this hotel. great rooms with very clean bathrooms. spacious! and quiet. enough parking. i requested a harder mattress, and they remembered this for my next visit. the restaurant is really nice, don't linger too long since the staff will prepare for breakfast. the only downside.

Stayed at Chateau de Raay again for a business meeting. We intended to also spend some time at the bar. One of the waiters told us there had been another party and they hadn't been able to reorganise the place so it was closed. Furthermore, upon arrival, I needed to wait for close to 15 minutes to be asked if... More

This is my favourite hotel in the Venlo area. I stayed here the second time and I was again thrilled by the beautiful place, the super friendly staff & service, the very good food in the restaurant and the spacious rooms - and all clean and at a fair rate! Internet access is very quick and easy, free parking just... More

This hotel is really in a beautiful setting. However it is a little puzzling to get to if using a sat nav. The hotel main gates at the front are not for cars, you need to go around the back. The reception staff are lovely and friendly and very helpful. However it did seem rehearsed how they told us about... More

Very nice old building surrounded by a beautiful park. Our rooms were situated in an annex with view at a big wall. The rooms are spacious and nice as are the bathrooms. The bed was for us far too soft and not very comfortable. Our flatscreen TV was rather small and there is only one comfortable chair to sit and... More

Last minute booking for one night. Fabulous place. Full of character and class... and delicious mattress toppers you just sink into. Um. Breakfast excellent. We hired bikes and rode into and around the local town. The Chinese at the cross roads is really good too.

Lovely hotel and setting but the artistic room 14 is not fit for normal adults. The shocking pink and purple colours in combination with similar colored furniture might be ok for small girls but not for a middle aged couple. Couldn't get in or out of bed. Floor is worn and there is a lot of dust on the fridge.... More
