We used this hotel as the starting point for visiting Maastricht and other smaller cities such Valkenburg. It is situated in the hilly(for Dutch standards) countryside just 20 min drive to Maastricht. As the name tells itself, it is connected with a buddhism and serves also for theirs conventions. At the time of our stay, only two or three rooms were taken, which was splendid. Namely, hotel is a nice bulidling, but the walls are thin as a paper. Despite that I slept there like a baby. We were given the oval room on the second floor, because of all the windows I felt like I was in opera box. Otherwise the room was basic and a bit obsolete. But it had anything you need. The best was the slepping quality and the view of a green meadow with two bulls pasturing.
The breakfast was served in a cosy living/dinning room. Because of the buddhist nature of the hotel, the breakfast was vegetarian, using only local bio products. I must admit, I am more like a meat person, but it was a whole new experience.
The village is typically well settled as everything in The Netherlands and you have everything you need. Some restaurants, bars, small grocery, gas station, train station with fast connection to Maastricht and bike rentals. It is worth mentioning that you can reach the city of Valkenburg in 20 minutes by bike.
All in all Kadampa is a splendid place if you look for peaceful, cosy place to stay away from the everyday problems.

Hotel Kadampa is like a buddhist retreat house. It looks like it might have been a mansion at some point and converted into a hotel. It is a pleasant building with many guest rooms. The rooms are quite basic but clean and has everything one would want for a weekend away, including free wi-fi!

For us, we wanted a break from the city and were looking for somewhere serene and simple. We got it here! Our room enjoyed a pleasant outlook over the fields and the river next to the property. The public common rooms like the lounge room and the dining room are spacious and very relaxing....it has a very homely atmosphere.

Breakfast is served in the big dining room and is quite sufficient....like what one would get from one;s own kitchen...cereal, boiled egg and very nice coffee or tea.

Through the day, coffee and other refreshments plus extremely delicious cakes and pies are available at the dining room at very reasonable prices.

There is a buddhist meditation centre attached to the property where meditation sessions are held regularly and hotel guest are welcome to attend. We also did a lot of walking through the woods and visited nearby villages.

The hotel is at the edge of the Schin op Geul village and requires a pleasant 5-10 minute walk to the centre where the train station, little shops and other eating places are located. There is enough variety of cafes and restaurants in the village to last the weekend without the need to travel to the bigger town of Valkenburg.

We enjoyed our stay very much and will do it again very soon.

We found the Kadampa hotel just as we expected; really peacefull and relaxing. The hotel is part of a Buddhist organisation, and their ethos is extended to all visitors. The room was comfortable and clean, although a little basic. We had a great view over the fields and river next to the hotel.

The owners helped us with walking routes, bike hire and places to eat in the village. They even helped us hose down our bikes after a muddy ride out. The breakfast is a good selection of the continental variety with cheese, cakes, pastries and a selection of breads.

The local cafes and eateries in Schin Op Guel all offered good evening meals so we didn't need to walk back into Valkenburg in the evening. The train station is a 5 minute walk away, and the Thermae 2000 spa is 20 mins away by bike and well worth a visit for the day.
