Stayed here during a weekend break, this hotel is in a nice and quiet location in the woods, close to Apeldoorn (Royal Palace ‘t Loo). We stayed in a suite which was quite spacious, well equipped (nice bathroom, a bit dark though), complimentary minibar and had a nice (sunny) terrace. This hotel features a small spa-area with a swimming-pool which... More

The Echoput is a well balanced restaurant /hotel with excellent food. We had dinner for 4 hours, and it was a real joy. The personnel was very kind, the dinner was excellent, and we had a large bedroom on the ground floor. Worth a visit!

My husband and I had a short stay here February 2013 and I was not impressed. We ate in the bistro (which is not the gourmet restaurant).

My partner and I visited De Echoput at the tail end of 2013. During our stay, we were shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of Madiba, but that didn’t take away from the overall experience.

The hotel, as mentioned in earlier reviews, is beautifully situated in the Feluian woods, opposite the crown domain "'t Loo" where you can spend many hours walking in the forest. The hotel is big and modern, and its style is evocative of a designer hybrid between European medieval times and Japan. The rooms are very pleasant: huge and spacy, and... More

Good service and good standard on everything but the breakfast was a bit overpriced. Nicely furnished rooms with all necessary items in the bathrooms and good space for luggage and personal belongings.
