Needed to stay near Holten as the teenager was racing (again) a lot of the hotels were already booked up so having never been to the area we took a chance on Sallandse Heuvelrug. Right from the start the customer service was excellent, I had managed to book double rooms for single occupancy but they changed them to double occupancy no problem. The greeting at reception was very good. The hotel itself is in grounds similar to some of the heathland on the South Coast of Britain, evergreens and sandy paths so it is relatively picturesque - for Holland. Go for Upgraded room with balcony as you get a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. Shower was really nice - rain shower but it had some power not the usual drip. Food was good better than the average hotel and wine list was reasonably priced. The staff were excellent nothing was too much bother. Ok if I am being picky then four things - 1. Beds were 2 doubles and it didn't seem that they could be put together - that said they were sooo comfortable. 2. No amenities to speak of in the bathroom just filled dispensers a bit like Premier inn. 3. Powdered creamer for tea & coffee - not my favorite but at least there was tea & coffee in the room. 4. Swimming pool was very small and according to another member of our party you had to pay to use it.
Some Words of wisdom.... Hotel is quite difficult to find even with a sat nav so make sure you research the route before you drive it. If you go into Holten or Rijssen the roads are confusing as they all seemed to have changed into one way system and they all look like someone's drive i.e. block paving - very posh but confusing for us poor Brits who are used to pot hole ridden, tarmac roads. Finally, you need a free permit to park in any of the 'Blue zones' available, so we were told by a local, from the police station or (seemingly non existent) tourist info centre.
