“Great Hotel Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We have just spent 4 days at this hotel to attend the Andre Rieu concert in Maastricht on the 5th of July. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to have first class food, service with great staff. It is situated on a very beautiful estate set in super gardens with many walks nearby.

We could not find fault with anything during our stay and with its excellent train service to both Maastricht and Valkenburg it was not difficult to be without the car!!

We arrived to early to check in, so they gave us a key for the spa, the pool and sauna were very nice. Checked in to a wonderful room in the main house enormous about 50 feet wide, very comfortable bed.

Chateau St Gerlach is a very grand historic hotel in the Dutch countryside close to pretty Valkenburg and not far from Maastricht. A tourist attraction in its own right due to its grand building, beautiful park and church with the last resting place of medieval saint St Gerlach it was converted into a luxury hotel a few years ago. Partly housed in the historic building, partly in sympathetically inserted new wings the rooms fulfill all the requirements of a hotel of this class. A more formal restaurant of French Cuisine and a less formal Bistro located in beautiful original rooms of the main house serve dinner to most tastes and occasions. Weather permitting there is beautiful outdoor seating in the patio and on the terrace overlooking the lawns, sculptures dotted around the grounds. The breakfast buffet is wonderful and doesn't leave anything else to be desired and the service is first class. There is a beautiful spa with indoor swimming pool on site and really one doesn't need to leave the grounds for a few days. Luxurious and highly recommended.

Room Tip: The apartments give even more space than standard rooms and truly feel like an apartment with kitche...

I highly recommend Chateau St. Gerlach for two reasons: the location is simply amazing next to a nature park & with incredible castle grounds (a vineyard from which they produce a great sparkling wine & beautiful rose gardens), and the restaurant at the castle is top class. That extends to the lovely breakfast that has a lot of locally produced delicacies.

The spa is good quality, and the buildings are beautiful as well. Service is good as you'd expect from a top hotel, although the fact that The Rolling Stones were staying at the hotel during our visit did cause some pressure on the way us mere mortals were treated.

Just one negative point would be that the apartment terrace still had a full ashtray on it when we arrived. The apartment itself feels a bit 90s (from when they were constructed into old houses on the castle grounds), while the senior suite in the castle itself was beautiful but definitely restored in keeping with the castle history, making very little (as is in my opinion right) compromises to typical modern amenities.

Again: the location itself is just magnificent, feels like you are in the middle of unspoiled nature in an amazing historic place.

Room Tip: The rooms in the castle are beautiful but a more pragmatic option are the apartments on the castle g...

My mother and I spent some really great time at this hotel. Beautiful hotel in a wonderful area, perfect for relaxing outside of the city. The rooms had some minor problems like the lack of light and uncomfortable pillows but that is what you get when living in a castle! The breakfast was great! We went to both restaurants of the hotel: didn't like the Bistrot food so much, but the main restaurant served delicious food! The spa of the hotel is beautiful and offers a lot of different treatments for your body. Loved it!
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

It is hard to beat the surroundings of this hotel. The location is triple A, for sure.
The room where we stayed this time (this was our second stay at Sint Gerlach) was allright, but nor spectacular. I was not impressed with the bathroom, nor was the cleanliness up-to-par. The grout next to the shower should not be black! There were some other minor things that were disappointing, like the fact that upon my request they brought a water boiler to the room, but no cups. The (insect) screen was too small, so there was a wasp caught between the screen and the window.
Breakfast, however, is amazing and of high quality. No comments there. We really enjoyed that!
I understand that they are renovating some of the rooms and I do think that is about time!

We stayed just for a weekend and overall it was a very nice stay. If you are looking for a nice countryside hotel to relax, then this is the place.
The hotels is located outside Maastircht, only 15 min by car. Surrounded by nature and in a very quite village, the hotel has a very nice spa to relax and disconect.
We didn't try the restaurant even though it looked very interesting and we had very good comments.
We booked an apartment which had two rooms as we were two couples. I must say that even though it wasn't as nice as expected, it was cosy and we enjoyed a nice aperitif at the terrace.
