Dear JeroenC, Thank you very much for sharing your good experiences with our future guests! The advantage for people staying regularly with us is that not 2 rooms are the same. All our 79 bedrooms are different, thanks to the structure of the old church. So every stay will be a new discovery! Just for giving the right information to... More

When you enter the reception, you get already an impression of transformation. The personnel at the reception were very friendly and the room was available at 15:00 hours. Entering the room,... More

Dear TaekeC, Thank you for your message through TripAdvisor. I guess, it was maybe already very dark when you entered the hotel at 01.30 am.
