The hotel website suggests an intimate boutique or design hotel. But do not be surprised when you enter this large conference centre with rooms designed to cater people who join a conference. The building itself is an architectural chaos. When there are no meetings, the place might feel empty. When there are meetings, you might not being able to have... More

We stayed for two nights with our three children and the grandparents in two Roomy rooms. The rooms were not on the same floor, which was a little inconvenient. They were very comfortable though and certainly roomy enough. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant on the first night. The food was nothing special and took too long to arrive.... More

Blooming Hotel is a place that’s so self-consciously wacky and creative that you can’t help thinking it wouldn’t hurt if they toned it all down a bit. From the stripy carpets in the meeting rooms, to the gravel beds in the bar and the stuffed ball pouffes in reception, it’s not so much a visual feast as a visual assault.... More

Rooms were fairly standard and uninspiring but were clean and comfortable. Big bed with a good selection of pillows and a decent bathroom with a great overhead shower, though I do prefer a bar of soap to bath gel, and there were no tissues ... unusual these days. Free wifi which worked well, and location is quiet and rural. Very... More

Big hotel visited by families, friends, couples and colleagues. Well equiped for all these kinds of guests. Good concept to be found throughout all details: breakfast from local foods, hotel room with minimal interior, but high Quality bed - the main thing, reading table with inspiring books, inspiring and welcoming phrases inside and around hotel. Attentive staff

After hearing great stories about this hotel, I arrived with high hopes for my two day business meeting. Found the rooms to be a bit standard. Was expecting a bit more design. Meetingrooms were standard too, allthough the kitchen with a Smeg fridge was nice. The best part of the meeting was the food. I was told that the hotel... More

I organized a team meeting of 2 days in this hotel. I was very pleased with the quiet and peaceful location surrounded by nature and the aesthetics of the hotel are modern and clean. Very interesting the lobby and restaurant. The meeting room was a little disappointing. It was nothing too special and very standard. The food at the restaurant... More

We have now stayed at The Blooming on 4 separate occasions. We usually stay as part of a long cycling trip around NL. The weekend just gone, was exactly the same, but this time we brought 2 friends from the UK with us. We had tried not raise expectations too high, as we didn’t want to rave about how lovely... More

Located in a forest, in the neighborhood of a delightfull small Dutch town, it looks like an idylic location. However, after check-in, management flaws just start to surface.First room I was checked in (1204), was smelling damp really bad. I asked to change and with some reluctance I was given another one (1304). The smell here was OK, but it... More

For our family of four a weekend at Blooming is the perfect way to recover from hectic every day life. Its luxurious without being posh, staff are super friendly to children and grown ups alike. Food is lovely and so are the rooms. The surroundings are tranquil and to top it all (according to our children) there is a pool!... More
