This time of the year Erkelens serves white asparagus dishes, a Dutch country special. Delicious prepared the traditional way (with boiled potatoes, ham, egg and butter) or with deer steak and spinach. They also have imaginative desserts such as the Drentse Aa Yoghurt (see picture). Despite a very busy saturday evening in the Restaurant, they managed to keep the pace... More

Erkelens is a lovely family owned boutique hotel in the rural village of Rolde, Drenthe. Their game tastery (wildproeverij in Dutch) is great, a special event which happens a couple of evenings in the autumn - reservations required. We however limited ourselves to an early game ragout meal (see photos) which was also outstanding - traditionally served with foxberries, chicory-walnut... More

ı stay in this hotel often for business reason, the hotel is clean, silent and it is inside of a seat village, the owner and staff always welcomes you very well. nowadays there is construction on the village roads, you might be easily lost in the village and you can see the beauty of nature combined with village

Two members of my family had another great winter style local game meal, as always somewhat pricey but fantastically well prepared in a pleasant setting. The kitchen and service in the Cafe and Restaurant of Erkelens really is very good in a traditional style and the ambiance is very pleasant as well. The only gripe could be their limited opening...

The kitchen is outstanding, if rich and somehwat pricey. In particular the seasonal local produce, such as white asparagus in the spring, mussels in the summer, and game in the... More

Extremely helpful and accommodating staff. The room we stayed in was rather basic but recently updated with a modern bathroom and new furniture. No A/C in the room but a fan was provided. Excellent restaurant and breakfast selection. It is located in the town of Rolde, the very type of small town we were looking for when we planned our... More

It has been 15 years since I stayed at Erkelens (that was fine) but I do go there for dinner regularly. They have a choice between an informal cafe style dining room and a more formal room. The menu of the formal room can also be had in the cafe. It is classical Dutch/French style cooking, with some Italian, Indonesian... More

Rolde is in a beautiful part of the Netherlands and the Hotel Erkelens is a lovely small hotel. Our room was equiped with a large bed and very clean and spacious bathroom. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast was buffet style with lots of choice of very tasty items. Highly recommend.
