This hotel is a place with many possibilities.
In the lobby is a huge chessboard and people can play billiard, there is a cyber room for kids and I believe there are also conference rooms.
There is an enormous gym - the biggest I have ever seen and their gear is modern and looks glamorous, there is a small pool and 2 jacuzzi's and this place is decorated in Roman style, there are tanning beds, a sauna that we didn't find - unfortunately the entrance doors to the sauna were closed. Ashame, but we didn't complain.
It's a very child-friendly hotel with lots of amenities.
It's not really in Eindhoven city, but in a village nearby, bordering to Helmond.
The village is called Mierlo, a quiet and friendly village.
The hotel itself doesn't look very modern, one can see that it's used for several decades.
But still everything has been taken care for.
The room was clean and comfortable, the SPA was included, there were bathrobes and slippers for us and there was nothing to complain about.
We went several times to the restaurant "De Morel" and the breakfast was great.
Unfortunately the dinners were a bit different than I expected, or at least: hoped.
A good advice for the reader: Do NOT order the lamb, as I did so and I got an old sheep cutlet.
I complained about it and I got something else, but the nice girl told me that the kitchen staff denied it was sheep. She said she was between a rock and a hard place, because we said something else than the kitchen staff maintained that they were right.
The last thing a staff can do is quarrel with their guests.
The day after there was another misunderstanding with someone else from the staff and we did not get any sauce on our fish.
When we complained the first time they ignored it and said that the dish was meant to be like this, a second time, when our plates were almost empty we complained again because we really missed the sauce and when I was busy with one of my last bites finally the sauce arrived.
It should be saffron sauce as they promised on the menu, but it was a fake saffron sauce.
I was not very amused by this behaviour and the lady apologized and we got a coffee and liquor for free at the end of our meal.
She claimed it was a misunderstanding between some people in the kitchen, very disappointing for us though...
