How many hotels have the identity of a prison, yet the luxury of a castle? Exactly! This historical building has kept some of its former identity and atmosphere (like prisoner's writings on the wall), but has changed the rooms to fit every modern person's needs. The location in the city centre of Roermond is also perfect. Most certainly a unique... More

Perfect stay in all aspects ... The hotel theme - a former house of detention converted into a 4* hotel - is worked out into perfection, but above all I truly enjoyed the joy, happiness and friendliness of all of the staff members A warm congratulations and thank you to the Van der Valk group of hotels Paul Van hove

We had the Directeurs suite, as we had 2 small children with us. We all loved it, was comfie and spacy. City itself was nice as the christmas market was up and running already. Lots of nice small restos too.

I really enjoyed my stay here, the staff were great and the whole atmosphere of the place was very friendly and chilled. The restaurant was great too and they made a special dessert for my son who had a hankering for chocolate that day. The room we stayed in was nice and when you enter the hotel it has a... More

Once you get over the shock of the galleried "Hall" with all the prison doors in place the rest of the hotel is ultra-modern. Good restaurant and bar but with some constraints imposed by the original function of the building and the usual form over function modern hotel room design. They must all go to the same school that forgot... More

This hotel was a really pleasant experience. I was met by very friendly and service minded staff in the reception. They even escorted me to the room. The best thing about this hotel is the interior. Walking into the old cell block were the rooms are, instantly put a smile on my face. The rooms are new and very nice.... More

"Het Arresthuis" is a former prison n the middle of the city Roermond. It has been transformed into a luxurious hotel and belongs to the wellknown Van Der Valk group. The very first time we stayed here we were blown away by it's unique character. In every room they have preserved some unique items from this former prison. We stayed... More

Very clever restoration of what was a prison which has been transformed into a unique hotel. I thought the best part was how sympathetic to the old structure of the building the restoration was whilst not transforming into a theme hotel. Lots of lovely, fun and tasteful touches combined with very cosy and interesting rooms. We had dinner there and... More

This place pleasantly surprised us. The former prison has been very nicely transformed into a hotel. The renovation has been done perfectly as you get the feeling of the old prison when going to the rooms without having any negative consequence of the rooms having been prison cells before. Rooms are spacious and multiple cells have been combined to one... More

Fab, unique hotel, great staff, excellent food. Go and stay... and apparently I have to put more characters into my review. OK, so it is an ex prison, de-commissioned in 2007. What is clever is that they have managed to turn it into a very good hotel, yet have not lost the prison look/feel. Very, very unique.
