We booked this on IHG points at short notice for one night en route to Centre Parcs, and got the exterior facing room we'd requested, making it easy to park up at the back of the hotel and wheel our luggage in. The family room was as we expected and fine for a one night stay, and the children enjoyed... More

During check-in staff implies that breakfast is included. In my case it was not, which I found out when I received the hotel bill. 20 Euro's is way overpriced for the buffet you get here. Atrium on the inside is very noisy. Lot of kids running around and quite some noise from the restaurant and the fountain.

My parents and I stayed here for about ten days between the end of July to the beginning of August. We were pretty impressed by the amount of guests the hotel received and the lovely layout of the hotel. Though the rooms needed a bit of an update, they were perfect for what we needed.

Unlike a lot of Dutch hotels, this one actually has nice, US-style beds and proper big pillows, choice of hard and soft. Clean rooms located around a central atrium (inside) and the outside of the hotel. Friendly staff. Right off exit 8 on the A44 freeway, free parking for hotel guests.
