My wife and I went with Leger's Vakenburg Coach Tour.
The De Bogaerde is called a sister hotel to the Walram, My wife and I were allocated a second floor room in the De Bogaerde. It was small (six inches between the bed foot and the cupboard). It was next to the noisy lift. We only slept in the room thank goodness. The beds were twins pushed together. The decor was non-existent. The flooring was carpet tiles onto either concrete or wood - whatever it was, it was hard and painful to kneel on.
The shower was fine. The toilet was high - I'm not small and my feet dangled :-). The bowl was that type that allows you to examine your doings before you flush.
We used the swimming pool - it was quiet. The water was warm and 1.5m deep. Towels are 1.60 euros and you are asked not to use room towels.
Room cleaning and towels were fine.
There are a few large internal steps to negotiate between hotels. Care is necessary as one of our group fell badly on them although thankfully came to no harm.
The breakfast was poor and always the same. The choice was: cold, overcooked scrambled eggs, hard, burnt streaky bacon, hard boiled eggs, three kinds of fatty cold meat, ham slice, chicken slice, various rolls and breads, doughy croissants, preserves, fruit, cereals, yoghourt, two kinds of cheese slice. There were 5 kinds of juice and hot drinks from machines.
Evening meals were very good: soup, main course with various (non-lettuce) salads, excellent sweets. Hot drinks were provided from machines.
Other coach companions also said their rooms were small,
Both hotels face a square opposite a convenient supermarket and cafe bar.
Staff were OK but table staff were young and not confident with English. Service could be slow.
With Leger, it is the luck of the draw whether you get put up in the de Bogaerde or the Walram but the latter is to be preferred.
