Rooms were humble, too warm, & one room the soap dispensar was missing, the shower one was empty. The spiral staircase is awkward to navigate with luggage. Breakfast however was superb offering fresh squeezed OJ, fresh coffee/ espresso, warm croissants, etc. The grounds were beautiful. The employees were all very kind.

What a beautiful location and so convenient . One criticism was the fact that the restruant closed at 20.00 hours so late arrivals could not get food. Other than this point we had a wonderful stay.and met our local friends. Good value for money and caring staff.

The Hotel is a 70`s building located in a really dark forest enviroment. Looks and feels like a US-Motel. No restaurants nearby. Hotel Restaurant poor quality. Closes at 8p.m. what is too early - many people go for dinner at or around 8p.m. Staff is ok.

If you are going to the Kasteel for some 'castle' feeling or five-star resort expectation....it's not for you. This is a smaller palace, located at the end of Leiden, which was converted over to being a wedding/conference type hotel (maybe 60-odd rooms). On the outskirts of Leiden, it's surrounded by trees and gives you a very relaxed feeling. You'd go... More

Our stay was NOT in a castle, but in a small room without a view in the 'koetshuis' next to this beautiful castle. So we absolutely didn't experience the 'castlefeelin' we wished for.. Breakfast was expensive but very basic.

We attended a wedding at the castle and stayed at the hotel afterwards. The venue was great, small and intimate for a mid sized wedding. We arrived a day before the wedding and the staff were very friendly throughout our stay. They could not do enough to help with Taxi bookings and advice. The only thing to take into consideration...

The Kasteel was outstanding. Location was very peaceful & we were able to enjoy a lovely walk through the forest, near the lake & the canal. The little town of Oerstgeest nearby was delightful. The staff were exceptional, friendly & helpful. The meals were excellent & affordable & I would like to compliment the chef. Our bed was extremely comfortable... More

While in Holland on a business trip, I decided to stay over for the week-end and take a relaxing break in what appeared to be a peaceful resort in walking distance from Leiden. It turned out to be a great experience: the surrounding park is a gem, the premises are divine, the rooms are clean, wi-fi works a treat, the... More

We enjoyed a three night stay in a spacious, quiet room. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We ate dinner in the restaurant each night, which was good. The location is good for visiting the bulb fields and other local attractions and towns.
