“Fantastic envirement with perfect restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

This Hotel has style and a perfect location. Restaurant is TOP but not cheap. The chef there has great ideas and loves special tastes which are not so common.
The rooms are clean and neat. great bed and bathroom. Also from the room you have a perfect view on the Ijssel and during the evening you see a lot o f light on on river and the famous Deventer Tower.

Room Tip: You can have a Suite for a couple euro more when available when you arrive.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We were in Europe for three weeks and this was the most expensive room that we had and are still trying to figure out why. As others have stated, the furniture is a bit dated and our room was just terribly designed and arranged. An oversized table directly at the foot of the bed which took up way to much space as did the oversized armoire. The shower was the real shocker which when used would pretty much flood the entire bathroom area. The sink was really strange and was more of an artistic element than something functional. The inconvenience of having to take a ferry back and forth was also an issue when it began raining. We ate an evening meal and breakfast at the hotel and were not impressed in the least. Better choices are across the river which also brings you closer into experiencing this little hidden gem of a town.

Lovely, well appointed hotel across the river from Deventer. You need to take a ferry across tothe town, but it's worth it. The town is lovely and great to bike around. The hotel has a place to store the bikes overnight. Reasonably priced, but breakfast is not included .

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

There aren't too many hotels in Deventer. The Sandton stands out as a bit of a luxury. For lack of any other room, I stayed in a suite overlooking the river. Nice that it was clean and had remote controlled curtains. It was also massively spacious for one person possibly intended for a bridal suite. Some comments though: first it was dark - lights were too few and too dim and the upholstery just dark. Second there was no coffee or tea facility in the room which I found very disappointing. For the price I paid I expected a Nespresso!
It was easy enough to get around. There is the ferry which takes you across for 1.40 euros per way. You can also call for a cab 12 euros one way. Dinner was quite good. The breakfast buffet a little disappointing.
All in all not bad but I expected something more.

For the price point, this hotel is not that great. We booked a suite. What did we get? A bed, two chairs, a conference table with eight office chairs. Um. Not what we were expecting, especially for the price we were paying. The room's decor was dated. Hello 1991! They didn't even bother to put up a painting, leaving it leaning against the wall.

The toilet room had a 1/4 full roll of toilet paper. When we asked for more, they wanted to know why we wanted it and how much. Strange. Also, there was no towel by the sink and it took a little searching to find soap.

The staff were professional if perfunctory.

The bar/lounge was pleasant, with large windows and comfortable seating. Also a great view of Deventer.

Would I stay here again? No.

Room Tip: Do not get a suite. Unless you plan on having a business meeting in your room.

This hotel is very cosy and offers a pleasant stay. The view from some rooms and the restaurant and terrace on the old town of Deventer is magnificent. Sit here at night and watch the hughe Lebuinus Church and tower. Service is good and so is the food. Rooms are pleasant, yet a bit expensive.
It is located at a very quiet place on the opposite side of the river. So you will get enough sleep here !
A good thing to do is to take the small boat across the IJssel when you go to visit the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view across the IJssel river.

Stayed whilst on a business trip. The food was excellent, although a little pricey. Rooms were of a very high standard, rain drop showers and fall away sinks. Right next to the river, ferrys cross for a few euros until 11pm at night, although its not far to walk into town if you miss them. I left my phone in the hotel bar, and the receptionist had it waiting for me in the morning. Very pleased with my stay.
