“Extremely unimpressive.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We stayed here for a night when we visited Maastricht. Here is my take:

- bad service
- we we're put in a room that had no heating, resulted in almost no sleep
- the room was somewhere in the back, through the restaurant and we felt the room was discarded and was not in use
- the room was less than basic
+ beautiful location
+ bathroom was clean

One of the worst experiences with respect to hotels. Would not recommend to anyone.
We bought a groupon voucher, may be that could have made the owner put us in the worst possible room, not sure though.

We stayed here with a groupon purchase for 49 euro for 1 night with breakfast. It is not worth more than that.

Pros: very, very clean. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was very good and nice setting. Free parking. Nice terrace with small garden view.
Cons: Small, cubicle style bathroom with bad lighting, no hair dryer. Amenities were a bar of soap and a tiny shampoo packet. TV was a tiny box like from the 1980's...smaller than a piece of paper. Very simple.

I agree with all the other Tripadvisor comments about the hotel. We also needed to ask at checkout for the groupon wine that was supposed to be waiting in our room.
Limburg is a beautiful area and we'll worth a visit. It is deservedly visited by Dutch tourists.

We stayed at this hotel after buying nights through Groupon... In few words... never again!! Hotel looks ok, but is quite old inside. Poor beds and aged matrasses, no isolation at all, you are awakend by the elder people waking up and talking. Breakfast, is good though. But better be there early. The biggest issue, is the dinner which was included in our package.. They sell you a 3 course starter which is really poor and tasteless. Really bad cuisine, just putting some melted cheese on overboiled vegetables, doesn't make it better. Dry and tough meat... A bottle of wine was supposed to be given, but we had to claim it. At arrival, the employee was everything but smiling... So a true disappointement, except for the breakfast.

Room Tip: Some "comfort rooms" offer the same facilities as cheaper standard rooms. Only some comfor...

We stayed for one night at this hotel. I must say that I was expecting much more. In several reviews this hotel had high score that is the main reason because we booked it.
The room is very simple. The brown color around the room makes it look old. Beds from IKEA with soft matresses. Bathroom was clean but old dated.
Check in has to be before 22:00. We did it around 16:00 but we came back to the room around 01:00. It was very cold and the windows were open. So, we had to spend around 15 minutes taking bugs out of the room. To close your room door you need to use your key, there is not other way to locked it up.
Breakfast is good, but you have to be there before 09:30. So no chance to sleep over. This, plus guests walking and chatting trough the hotel on their way to the restaurant since 08:00, and believe me after that time you cannot sleep any longer. You can heard everything from outside. Most of the guests that we saw around the hotel were elderly. Not children of young couples.
Positive things: beside good breakfast, free parking and of course the location at South Limburg, which is beautiful. I think these are the only things that we enjoyed during our time there.
I don't think that we come back here again. It was too expensive for a clean old hotel.
