“Hot trap!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

The location of this hotel is very nice, the room big enough, the bathroom big enough to accommodate 4 person at once if needed :-), tube, shower for 2, tap for 2, just 1 toilett; but just one rail for wet towel. We stayed at the hotel 4 adults in one room and our overall experience was quite good, wifi was free and strong.
But: I have only two words for breakfast - "unreasonable expensive", therefore we were without it as it would almost double the price. Kettle and small fridge / minibar will be very welcommed, as all the water and all the food we had immediately melted in the hot weather. Unfortunatelly we had so hot weather and unfortunatelly we have stayed in the annexe, where the rooms have only one very small window that can be openned and only particularly. There was almost no chance to get fresh air or ventilate the room, which changed to the hot trap without air, without chance to breath, without chance to drink something cold. Opening of the doors doesn't help much as the doors are at the same place as the only openned window.
It can be nice in different weather but unsurvivable in warm one, untill the new windows will be cut off in the opposite wall from the doors.

Stayed July 2014

This hotel offers value for money; spacious rooms, clean and a good location. Breakfast is nothing special, but ok. In the details they could improve a lot, like taking care of the lawns. But all in all a good experience and much cheaper than comparable hotels in Amersfoort.

Room Tip: Get yourself in a family room.

Stayed here for 1 night with a friend. We had room 406 which was in one of the seperate buildings. The room was fine. It was clean, spacious and had a very nice and big shower. The bed was comfortable. It is situated between Amersfoort and Soest. Breakfast was fine, staff helpfull and friendly, especially staff at breakfast! Would stay here again.

Providing true hospitality is an art. Many hotels try their outmost to get to a memorable level for their guests, some of them simply don't. Het Witte huis falls in the last category. Apparently, a significant renovation took place but the rooms and the property do not represent this change at all. Average rooms, average cleanliness of the rooms and unlogical set up of furniture.
Restaurant F&B was expensive and very mediocre. Service provided by staff was "Dutch standard", so below any international standard.
The one thing that stroke me the most in a negative way was to witness how denegrating the hotel manager treats his employees. Needless to say this is the root cause that needs to be fixed. How can you expect hotel staff to provide the best service if they are being played down by their leader. A good leader inspires, motivates and brings people to the highest level. I think Mr Hermans has some work to do in this hotel, growth of your business comes by providing the best product & service.

Room Tip: Not impressed with the rooms at all

Our decision to stay in this hotel was a last minute one. We first wanted to have a look, as so often in Holland hotels are somewhat old, tired and expensive for what you get.
We were very happy with our choice and would recommend this hotel. Maybe not in summer as I do not think the rooms are equipped with aircon and it can become hot and stuffy.
Minus point is the windows that you can’t open in ‘Safe mode’, at least not in the rooms in the annexes. If we would open the window in our room, anyone could climb in. Maybe the hotel can look into this ?
Friendly reception.
We had a lovely room in one of the annexes. Spacious and newly renovated (I loved the grey/green taupe color). Lovely bathroom too. Strong water jet from the shower, but I missed a complimentary showercap.
What I did not understand is why the two beds were 80 cm wide (210 in length but only 80 cm wide). The room has space enough for two beds 90x210. Flatscreen TV, but we did not watch TV so I can't say how many international channels are available.
The curtains do what they are designed to do : block daylight. Thank you for that !
Breakfast was nice, and I appreciated the papers and magazines that are available for quests, though they were in Dutch, nothing in English, German or French (as far as I could see).
Parking is free. Wifi is free (as it should be today).
Overall a positive experience and I would like to return.

Our family just had dinner at their restaurant. The food was delicious, however it took about 2.5 hours for soup and the main course. We ordered dessert, waited another 30 minutes, but then decided to leave. The restaurant wasn't very busy and the staff was indifferent. Overall not a very good experience.
