Price quality wise a perfect stay when you are in beautiful Twente. Comfortable, very quiet rooms with all facilities except a minibar. A more than good restaurant. Look for their last minute offers. Extensive breakfast.

We went for a midweek to De Swarte Ruijter. The hotel/restaurant is beautifully located at the border of the National Park Sallandse Heuvelrug. You can walk and cycle directly from the hotel into the National Park. Hotel rooms are situated in the garden of the hotel: 13 in total. All with views of the garden and a little terrace to... More

We booked last minute one night in this hotel, better say restaurant with option to stay overnight. Just great, a rather limited menu with orginal dishes. We choose to be surprised, and we were. One of the best restaurants of The Netherlands. The cottage style rooms were very good as well, and the quite and beautiful location is a miracle... More

We stayed for one night and enjoyed the restaurant and the hotel. All perfect: service, food, room and all in details. The place is in a forest environment and next w'll bring our walking shoes and take more time.

With regards to the food we agree with the previous reviews. This hotel is part of the JRE-group (www.jre.net) and is recommended by the 'Guide Michelin'. Althoiugh you can book arrangements (sleep & eat a 4-course dinner) we decided to book a last minute room (100 Euro for 2 people incl breakfast) and to have the 5 dinner JRE menu.... More

2 colleagues and I stayed here for a few days in Jan 2013 for a business trip. The rooms were spacious, clean and up kept. The dinner was simply amazing, and we received high quality service thorough our stay.

We only stopped in for a cup of coffee/tea since we were early for an appointment in the area and were pleasantly surprised. For 3 euros each my partner had a large, tasty cappuccino and I ordered a tea and was pleased to get not the usual Pickwicks teabag and small cup of lukewarm water but a good-sized pot of... More

Go to the Swarte Ruijter for old-fashioned service. Staff literally go the extra mile to pick up their guests, als I found when I arrived at the local train station. With luggage for most people it may be a bit of a hike. Having emailed whether it would be possible to walk to the hotel from the station, I was... More

If you are looking for a star restaurant experience for a decent price you should visit De Swarte Ruijter. The food is fantastic and the service too. They also have nice cabin style rooms in the forrest. You can combine your stay with hiking or other outdoor activtities.
