“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I recently stayed here with a group and I found it to be an excellent hotel. Lucy- the owner/manager was incredibly pleasant and helpful to deal with. She was always available to answer queries. We had buffet breakfasts and dinners, the choice and quality of the food was great. The rooms were spacious and very clean. There also was a spacious dvd/conference room available for our use. The hotel is a collector's paradise and there is loads to see. I would highly recommend this hotel

To be honest, a bit disappointing this hotel. Although clean, don't be surprised by the old antique "junk" scattered all over the facility. Driving in you are welcomed by a dozen old buses, in a industrial area part of the village. Not the traditional views you would expect when you book here.

The rooms are clean, but the whole place really feels like a retirement home. All rooms are just functional and set up for wheel chair access. Shower very basic and fitted out with shower chair and special rails. Tv (15"..) and radio very basic, and not from this time anymore. Breakfast buffet is in that range too.

If you are under 65 years old (or feel like that), I advise to look for a nice place in the village and prevent a stay in a somewhat depressing surrounding.

Room rates do not match the quality that is offered.

If you have a disability problem or perhaps in a wheelchair this is the perfect hotel.
The hole area is well suited for rolling around inside and outside. The rooms are big and there is electric beds for handicaped that makes it possible to raise your head and feets as well as upp and down for good working position. The staff is really helpful and in to what they are doing, great service and good food. A big and nice + is the hotel it self that is something of a cool kind of museum with all kind of things from old ship models old cars busses engines mechanical devices old record players scales typewriters , something everywere. Really different in a nice way. Trips for wheelchairs is possible in the surrounding area and the hotel is only 17 km from Amsterdam which gives you a cheaper stay than the hotels in Amsterdam city. Great place......Thank´s Lucy. Jonas and the girls........4wheeldrive

Room Tip: For handicap all these rooms are good and the rest too.

There are two good sides in this hotel: Beautiful Location in the Country Side and its Friendly Staff. On the other hand, I did not like the room facilities, the bathroom quality, the Beds covers were not good at all. My room did not have any AC to heat it and the bathroom was even worse. Although this hotel is located only 30 KM from Amsterdam, you will need at least an hour to reach it in peak traffic hours.

I was really mislead by the 4 stars sign when I booked this stay on booking.com. Don't believe this ranking.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel unless you have a disability.
The good:
- This is a matter of personal taste but the Beds are very soft
- The Continental breakfast is very good and tasty
- Reception staff knows English and is helpful

The bad:
- Cleaning was not done, and beds were thrown like they just had "fun" in them
We even found MJ buds in the drawers...
- No signs such as Do Not Disturb or others
- CERTAINLY NOT A 4* HOTEL

The weird:
- interesting sitting-area with a lot of antique and weird stuff

Room Tip: You can take away food from breakfast, there are plastic bags near the bread. Try the Heineken Oud...
