“Charming and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We stayed 4 nights in this charming little hotel while cycling in the Oosterbeek and Arnhem area, and would happily visit again. We loved the location with access to the train stop, the Airborne Museum, war cemetery and outlying cycle trails.

This is a small hotel with a limited number of rooms, but the benefit was evident in our ability to get to know most of the staff and the owner. Their attention to customer service throughout our stay was exceptional, and several times went 'above and beyond' normal service. Breakfasts were excellent and substantial, allowing us to properly start our daily 50 km cycling journeys. Twice we enjoyed the 'Chefs special' evening meals in the hotel as well.

We accessed rental bikes through the hotel, and while they were adequate for our needs they were clearly geared to a more casual use than what we intended. The free WiFi throughout the hotel was much appreciated, as was the unlimited free coffee and tea in the room and lounge throughout our stay.

Not surprising for an older European hotel, the bathroom was a little tight! But then again, we didn't book this expecting the 'formula' accommodations available in larger chain hotels. We wanted comfortable beds, good food, good location, free WiFi, and an authentic European experience, and the Dreyeroord delivered. It has character!

If I could suggest a couple improvements, I would like to see an improved website and a little more attention to housekeeping (for example the coffee service in the room didn't look like it had been moved or cleaned in a while). But these were minor concerns and wouldn't stop me from booking again.

My daughter and i flew to Amsterdam to see the Airborn Museum and my daughter to go to a concert. Hotel Dreyerood was a great place to stay, Staff very friendly and helpful, The meals were great and plenty of TV channels in your room to watch.
This hotel has plenty of History from WW2 and is walking distance to the Airborn Cemetary and Museum.
We stayed Saturday and left on a Monday. The only thing that was strange i thought was the nearby shops were all closed on Sunday so not much variety apart from a Petrol station to buy food. So lunch was na problem but the breakfasts and dinners at the hotel were fantastic so why look for somewhere else to go.

Room Tip: We had a connecting room and both of these were pretty good. The only thing that i could possibly sa...

I was over in Arnhem/Oosterbeek this weekend to launch Revisting Theirs is the Glory and a run a battlefield walk. I wanted to stay in a hotel where the legacy was 100% and this is what I got- exactly. Used as the HQ of the KOSB during the battle it oozes nostalgia and just when I was imagining what it was like to dig in just beneath the fire exit armed with a Bren a veteran of the battle was on my shoulder to put it in slightly clearer context. The hotel has been in the current owners hands for generations and now William holds the manager's role and is working hard to ensure the hotel delivers on accomodation standard's as well as its already legendary legacy standards.

The hotel is very conveniently located for both the Oosterbeek airbourne museum and Arnhem town centre. The hotel has a very nice garden and is located in a wooded area of Oosterbeek. The area is excellent for cycling.

The only downside was a very small bathroom in the least expensive rooms.

Room Tip: choose the more expensive rooms on the second floor.

Very friendly staff, great area and place to stay to visit museums in the area. Also for some sightseeing in this beautiful part of The Netherlands (we explored it by bicycle- it's quite hilly!), it is the right spot. Very quiet area, nice garden. Also the museum Burgers Zoo and great Openluchtmuseum are within close reach (even by bike). Definately recommended!

Room Tip: ask for the recently pimped rooms

Located right in the heart of the Arnhem Battlefields, where 1st Airborne Division fought in September 1944 - best known from the film 'A Bridge Too Far'.

The hotel was known as the 'White House' to the troops and was the scene of fierce fighting, and is the original building here in 1944.

I was staying here with a friend and we found it a good base for the area, warm and comfortable, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The breakfast was typical for Holland, and there was some choice in the buffet. The rooms are a little more than 'basic', but again comfortable and clean. There is a lift to all floors and parking directly on front of the hotel. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

An excellent hotel which I will be using frequently on my visits to the area.
