The dining room is excellent with breakfast choices very good. The staff were very friendly and the owner Hans introduced himself. All spoke excellent English, sadly putting us to shame as we speak no Dutch. I... More

I stayed here with my 2 daughters for the MotoGP at Assen. Hotel easy to find due to its colourful nature ! All the staff were warm and welcoming throughout the hotel. You could eat elsewhere but for 2-3 days why bother, the restaurant is excellent. Look forward to staying here next year. Happy to recommend.

The ten Cate family has done a great job, reviving the hotel to it's old glory. The food and wine are top class, atmosphere great and the people really make you feel welcome and warm. Recommended for sure.

We decided to stay at the Ten Cate hotel after we read that the old owners took the hotel over again. We used to stay at this hotel before. The hotel is now managed by the Ten Cate family and it was a wonderful experience, you feel at home while you stay at their hotel. The rooms are clean, bathrooms... More
