The hotel was beautiful, staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. Room was very comfortable and clean, the beds were so soft! Wifi was strong everywhere in the hotel and free of charge which was very nice. Parking was easy and free too. 10/10.

A very good place to start a cycle tour or a city tour. Inside and outside the buildings there is no city- or other noise. A very kind team at the reception, in the restaurant and cleaning made our staying a very pleasant one.

nice castle although you sleep in one of the sidebuildings. Romantic and green place. The rooms are nice, clean and well re-newed. One thing; they are way too warm. The door can't be openend during the night since there is an open gallery behind it.

The country house and grounds looked fabulous but we were in an annexe off to the side. The receptionist was very nice but there was a fair going on nearby with much drum-banging. The Wi-Fi was excellent, however, and we had a decent dinner from a limited menu. Breakfast was fine. Our overall impression was of a premium hotel being... More

Upon late arrival (communicated upfront) we wanted to get a drink. Staff informed us that wasn't possible, due to a wedding reception they had to cater for. So please have enough staff or don't accept bookings on such a night.

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.
