“pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Nice big room with twin beds and plenty of hanging space as well as tea and coffee making facilities
The bathroom also was lovely, with a big shower, bath,as well as the necessary toilet and sink, also nice toiletries
The bar area is pleasant and the waiter was very friendly and observant.
The restaurant is a good size with a nice if not fantastic menu, but I ate there both nights and enjoyed dinner. Breakfast is a good selection of hot and cold
The gym is also not bad, not brilliant but better than many, with a good selection of cardio and weights equipment
Definitely I would recommend it and stay again

One thing they re doing some renovation at the moment, so some of the corridors are a little cluttered, but this is a very minor issue

Room Tip: the rooms are a little distant from reception but there are lifts etc. If you have a disability ask...

Highly recommend

I stayed here for a week for business. This hotel is average at best. They lead you to think it aj a luxury or premium hotel, but far from it.


Hotel:
Not impressed.
Not Luxury or Premium by any stretch of the imagination. I went the extra euros for the "luxury" room and is hate to see the non luxury room.

Cons:
-No Iron or Ironing board in the room
-No mini fridge.
-Towels are thin and abrasive
-No lotion or conditioner
-No facial tissues and abrasive TP
-No AC
-Uncomfortable beds and pillows
-Breakfast buffet is repetitive
-The amount of doors in this place is rediculous. Had to cross 9 with bags to get to room.
-shower feels like being sprayed by an elephant hose. Sloppy and inconsistent.
-room service obviously doesn't clean the showers as I had little mini shampoos and body wash bottles accumulated over an entire week.
-expensive. Paid twice what I could have paid just for the average gym.

Pros:
-Has an average at best gym, but it's one if the few places in the area that has a gym.
-Buffet is good, but gets old after two mornings. No variation.
-free wifi

We stayed here for 2 days whilst attending a wedding in Hengelo. This hotel was superb and much bigger than the picture shows! Staff were friendly and very helpful - giving us our room a good few hours before check in time. The room was large, well appointed with a lovely balcony and view of the gardens. Breakfast buffet is not to be missed ! Amazing service and choice. Bar prices were reasonable and the choice of sandwiches, snacks was good. Would recommend this hotel and will def stay again.

The hotel is more like a resort. The rooms are excellent and very spacious. But the only thing is that you have to walk a lot and open too many doors before you reach your room. The breakfast is excellent with a lot of options. The room service is quick and responsive. The parking space available in hotel is very good.

Room Tip: Please ask for a room which is near to the reception.
