“Lovely hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We recently enjoyed a pleasant stay here at this fairly new hotel. The staff is very friendly and aim to please. The rooms are modern, tidy, quiet, offer adequate heating for cold nights. Our room overlooked the square. We tried to open the window, but either the window cannot be opened or we couldn't figure it out. The bathroom was also modern- a suggestion would be to add a small stool for clothes. Also, the bathroom did not come equipped with a hair dryer; instead a hair dryer could be borrowed from the front desk. The parking is located in a covered garage less than 5 minutes walking. However, the staff informed us we could pull our car up to the front for loading our luggage. The breakfast is tasty with breads, cereals, hard boiled eggs, etc. and the hours for breakfast are reasonable for early and later risers. This is a lovely hotel and we would stay here again.

Had a great 35 days staying at the Hulsman while working in Holland, we could have stayed much closer to work but the hotel is situated in the main square of the beautiful town of Venray.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, quality of service is top class and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is very clean and modern. Would highly recommend this hotel !!

Room Tip: Just ask !!

Visited here for a couple of nights and, even though we turned up 3 hours late (10:00 pm) - they still cooked dinner for us and gave us a lager while we waited. The staff are fantastic, owner very friendly, rooms are large and spotless - I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel! How it fails to get 4 stars is beyond me; as it is much better than most 4* hotels I have visited and quite a few 5*.
In fact - I have booked to stay here again next week, even though we are working in Eindhoven - the extra drive is worth it.
They even keep the bar open until the last person has left (not me, by the way).
The ONLY downside is the lift - probably one of the worst I have ever seen, but I am fit enough not to use it - so I did not :)

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room - try to book a room at the back of the building.

I stayed at the Hotel Hulsman for a few weeks on business and found it to be quite enjoyable. The rooms are clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. This became a second home and is always nice when the staff know your name and can sit with you and talk about the day. I highly recommend this hotel for long and short term stay.

Room Tip: Ask if any events are happening in the square at night (carnival, fair). If so, you may want to ask...

This is a modern hotel which appears to have been very recently fitted out. We were a last minute booking and the only room available had disabled facilities which meant both room and shower room/toilet were lovely and very spacious. The room overlooked the main square at Venray and had a very open view. The staff were very approachable, cheerful and helpful. Nothing was too much for them. Breakfast is a typical Dutch one with choice of fruit juice, cereal, ham, cheese, breads, jam etc. and taken in the cafe which is part of the Hotel. We ate an evening meal in the cafe and found it delicious. The menu was a little limited but good. The food was delicious being well prepared and presented. The only slight drawback is that car parking is in an underground garage needing a walk of some 500yds. with cases but this is far outweighed by the advantages of the hotel. I have no qualms in highly recommending this establishement and will return if in the area again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel have a very open and bright outlook with lots to see in the square w...

My wife and I spent a night at the Hulsman after visiting the 2012 Floriade expo. The hotel is convenient to the expo (15 - 20 minute drive) and is an excellent value. The hotel is located on the main square in Venray and is affiliated with Cafe Hulsman, which provided a nice breakfast. The staff is friendly and efficient.

Once you have located the Hotel Hulsman you will find an immaculately clean establishment with wonderful staff. The rooms are perfect for a short stay (I stayed here to visit Floriade which is just 20 minutes away by car). After a peaceful night in a very comfortable bed the continental breakfast was a good start to the day. I would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a pedestrian square with no passing traffic.
