“One of the historic hotels of the Benelux”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

The Hotel Carelshaven flourished under the successful, efficient management of six generations of the Kluvers family.
Spacious & quiet rooms and cozy atmosphere
Attentive staff, excellent breakfast – highly recommendable

Carelshaven used to be an inn at a short quay on a canal now filled. It has a nice terrace and a big garden and long walks may be made in the immediate neighbourhood. The public rooms are quiet, comfortable and unassuming though, like the rooms, they may well do with some paint and in general a less tired look. Over the public rooms and in a separate wing there are spacious comfortable bedrooms with terrace or balcony. Service is friendly. Restaurant is all right and would be more appealing with a little bit more effort by the cuisiniers! At this moment, it is a bit dated. Carelshaven is ideally located to visit the castles, mansions, towns and sights in the east of the Netherlands that so few foreigners visit, and come home to a whisky at the fireplace and a good meal!

Room Tip: Reserve on of the ground floor rooms in the wing

We found this inn using "Links und Rechts am Autobahn". Incredibly cozy, incredibly friendly staff. Excellent dinner restaurant! It is a little pricey for an average family stay, but as we were passing through on our way to and from France, it was great for us. May not be a good fit for very small children (our son is eight so it worked for us.)

I stayed in all sorts of hotels all over the world, having traveled 20 years non stop for my business. Not one hotel has ever given me the welcome-back-home feeling as this small 20 or so room hotel in Delden. Funny enough the staff may seem seems a bit grumpy in the beginning, but is actually very kind and helpful. The rooms are huge (ask for the ones in the garden wing) and the good old Dutch countryside is everywhere and overwhelming. Breakfast is great. The smell of fresh tea lingers in the lobby and the small breakfast-salon from 7 every morning. Dinner is the best you'll find in a 25 km radius. Good wine. Altogether; fantastic as-it-used-to-be atmosphere, but without being fuzzy on the edges... Great! Keep up the good work!
