Facilities were new, just opened in July. All personnel were friendly and helpful. We ordered off the menu and our dinner and breakfast were great. Beautiful views, book in advance for peak times. A great visit.

Stayed the weekend. The rooms are very clean, well decorated and comfortable. Probably the most comfortable bed and pillows we've had during a hotel stay. We were so very disappointed with the restaurant. Coffee was bad, food was terrible. Buffet was terribly overpriced for the evening meal at $16.95. Very institutionized food. Black bean salsa appeared to be a can... More

The old hotel has been transformed. Room was great, one of the most quiet I've experienced anywhere. Nice, clean and the area is beautiful. My fear is that this will become a hard place to book. Don't fail to also make the drive to Oklahoma and also to the bottom of the hill to Steves general store for breakfast.

I revisited this Arkansas gem, checking in 08/16/15 and out 8/17/15. I must admit I was just floored by the differences. Queen Wilhelmina Lodge had been closed 3 years for a major renovation and reopened last month. The checkin process was a friendly and seemless process. I had reserved a 2nd floor king room and what an awesome surprise! The... More

Living nearby we greatly anticipated QWL reopening so a friend and I visited for breakfast buffet. I am very sorry to say not only was it overpriced at thirteen dollars the quality was dismal being level 1 Sysco heat and eat. Hopefully the Arkansas tourism department will quickly fix the food before QWL reputation is permanently damaged.

Perched 2,600 feet above sea level on top of Rich Mountain, Queen Wilhelmina Lodge offers the visitor an unencumbered view of the mountain ranges and the wooded valley and lakes below. Originally built as a luxurious "inn" by affluent railroad Dutch investors in June of 1898, the original structure has survived the ravages of time and fire. The present lodge... More

The Queen Wilhelmina Lodge reopened July 1 (2015). The on-line reservation system had some issues, so we drove to Mena and booked our room. The rooms are a comfortable size. The sleep quality is excellent...quiet and comfortable. There is enough lighting in the bath for make-up application. Our room did not have a tub, but it did have a huge... More

I was looking forward to a great meal at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge restaurant last evening, but it was not up to my expectations. We have dined in some other Arkansas State Park lodges and were expecting this lodge's restaurant to be similar. It was not. The meals are over priced. The food was just average, with a very small...
