“like visiting friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

we stayed for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon.
Lovely woodland setting - just great sitting out having breakfast whilst watching the woodpeckers and other birds.
The food choice at breakfast is great. All lovely and fresh and the staff are really friendly and helpful.
The rooms are comfortable and very clean. There is free easy parking amongst the trees.
Lovely grounds to wander round and plenty of space to relax.

Room Tip: If you want a double bed you need to ask as most are singles pushed together.

Stayed here in a last minute rush. Read some less nice reviews, but overall the horal was ok. Business rooms are big and wel kept, place is quiet and breakfast is ok. Special mention for the staff at the restaurant, welcoming and pleasant. Overall not a bad experience at all.

Yesterday arrived there in the afternoon and spent a night there, very bad smell in the room, even did not disappear with open window, it was well marked that the rooms will be renovated july/ august, more than time !
You could hear every noise from the other room.
The quality of the dinner was not good and the price was gar too expensive.
Good swiming pool and sauna.
Breakfast was ok.
I will not return to ths hotel.

This hotel looks like it has recently been refurbished. Nice decoration, good beds and well-equipped bedrooms. The pool was small but warm and clean; sauna not very hot, but pleasant. Breakfast was quite lavish and good; dinner was good but service was excruciatingly slow (for which staff kept apologising). Good value weekend breaks. Beautiful location in the beech woods, but car essential. All in all a very pleasant stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

In a great setting in the woods close to Utrecht (if you have a car). Parking is secure and spacious for safe parking. The hotel feels more like a business hotel and is nicely decorated. A swimming pool is available but we did not use it. We did not have dinner. Breakfast is decent as expected. Everything is there what you can expect but nothing extraordinary. The rooms are also ok with all the basics in but they are on the small side. We paid a extra low fee of 65 euro per room between Xmas and new year so good value for money.

I stayed here for a two-day conference. Location is very good, nice and quiet in the woods. Plenty of parking space, good rooms (good beds, and quiet), food was OK (breakfast and lunch very good, dinner average). All in all, a nice hotel.
