“Atmospheric with promise to become excellent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The hotel is beautifully situated in the woods, and the restaurant and our hotelroom were very hip in a quaint way. The staff was helpful and friendly and breakfast was sufficient. Unfortunately the beds were too soft (thin top-matrass on a boxspring bed, no ergonomic support) which caused us an uncomfortable night and backpain in the morning. Having a corner room where we could open the windows at night and smell and hear the forest made up a lot for it, but combined with some other malfunctions (the cold tap provided warm water and had to be run several minutes before getting anything remotely cool, the central heater seemed to have a mind of it's own where the knob twisted back very slowly after releasing it, causing the central heater to remain on the entire night) this isn't a hotel we'd like to stay at again. Cleanliness and atmosphere mean little when the basic sleeping and staying needs simply aren't up to par.

Staff were all Excellent, Friendly polite committed to guest satisfaction. Excellent location deep in the Forest. Restaurant and Bar stylish modern decoration with good ambiance.
Double Rooms were a good size. Shower was a wonderfully strong power shower. Bathroom sink was too small to be functional, was only the size you have in a downstairs loo.
Wooden floors can be quite noisy upstairs on the bedroom corridors. Would be good to have some shelves in the room to keep toiletries etc.

Staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Would be a lovely base for a weekend of activities in the forest

Room: I had an end room - with lots of windows and a view of the seating area / playground. Big room, good internet. Well appointed. Loved the rustic decoration and TV over the bed.
Would have liked a desk to work at - there wasn't one. Internet was good.

Hotel: right in the middle of a forest - very secluded - lovely. Only noise was the wildlife.
Very rustic and themed a bit like a hunting lodge - really nice.

Food: evening meal was lovely. Excellent choices (unusual to an English pallate) - but really tasty. Amongst the best I have had anywhere. Breakfast was basic - but fine.

Service: great - cound'nt do more.

Room Tip: Would recommend an end room - you get lots of windows and a great view.

Spent two nights with my nieces in this hotel during their half term holiday in February in order for us to spend some time at Efterling.
A wonderfully quiet hotel in the winter with snow and pretty lights and log fires.
Excellent food and selection of drinks as well as a good range of foods for breakfast.
Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times.

Room Tip: The family room at the top of the hotel is beautiful, but a little cool when the temperatures are su...

I stayed here for the veterinary congress with the KWPN stallion approval for 1 night and loved it. The hotel lies beautifully secluded and provided a small but extremely cosy room (I had booked a single which is what I received), friendly service and a respectable breakfast. I also enjoyed dining in the rustique style restaurant. While no haute cuisine (nor claiming to be) the menu had an ok selection of bistro meals and featured fresh ingredients. I've found the price-performance ratio outstanding and will stay over again anytime.

A combined hotel and restaurant. The restaurant is in the lower level, and 11 rooms is available on the second floor.The floors are connected by some steep stairs.

The hotel is located in the woods near Oisterwijk, and the surroundings are quite cosy.

The rooms were small but adequite, and contained all we needed for our stay. A good and wide bed, a tv with multiple channels, free internet (when it worked as there was almost no signal in our end of the hotel), small bathroom with a toilet, sink and a small shower.

The breakfast was better than what I expected. They made fresh scrambled eggs (or sunny side up), and had several choices in bread and cereals.

The crew was happy and helpful. We were a bit delayed, but the staff stayed late and waited for us :-)

I stayed in this hotel for one night in New Years eve. It's what can be expected for an hotel in the middle of the woods: cozy and with a nice atmosphere.

The staff was very nice and helpful, the food we had was good, the room was not fantastic but it was more than we can expect for the price we payed (79 euros including breakfast).

I would recommend this if you are not looking for a luxurious room, but rather a country style experience.
