“Weekend out with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We visited this hotel with a group of 19 people. Rooms were very good, very clean with new bathrooms and toilets. Beds were okay, too.
Breakfast very complete, we didn'tmiss anything.
Dinner was very, very good. The first night we ate in the " gelagkamer " , a beautiful and very authentic room with a warm atmosphere. The second night we ate in the " normal" restaurant, but this dinner was as good as the first time.
Staff was very helpfull.
Will go back for seconds, thirds ....

Room Tip: Every room is o.k.!

We had our wedding party in de Zwaan on the 23rd of February,

from the first meeting with the manager we knew we had nothing to worry about. and anyone who has ever origanized their own wedding, will know that this is exactly what you need, a piece of mind and knowing you are in good hands

the service that we received on the night was great, if there was anything at all, the girls who were there to help out took care immidiately, both were very helpful and served everyone with a smile.
the food was absolutely delicious and tasty, the menu they were offering was adjusted to our taste.
the room where the party was held, called 'gelagkamer'... it is very special, it has caracter and atmosphere, in the evening it was filled with candles and the fire place made everything magical.

the hotel is 3stars and the bedrooms are up to the standards and more. rooms are clean and tidy.
we had room #209 and according to the manager it is the best room in town :) one thing maybe missing, would be a minibar.

if you are in the area, this is the place you need to stay and dine. for parties for about 50-100 pax, choose the 'gelagkamer' at this hotel!

The Best Western Hotel De Zwaan is ideally located in the heart of Raalte with ample parking. We had a slight problem on check in but that was very quickly resolved by the efficient but friendly staff. The rooms are spacious with wi-fi available and tv as well as tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was also large and immaculate. During our stay we travelled many miles around the area in all kinds of weather so on our return in the evenings we needed to be greeted with smiles, good food and good beer. We got all of that and more. The food was fantastic and so well presented and the waiting/reception staff so warm and approachable. We had many laughs with them and were grateful that their English was better than our Dutch! Breakfast was also very good quality. We all agreed that we would return in the future and explore this lovely part of Europe. Thank you to all the staff at the hotel for making this such a fantastic stay.

Public areas and restaurants are very smart. Rooms are OK and clean but are just a bit on the tired side. There is a small charge for wifi and one free internet computer available to guests which we found useful.
