“Restaurant closes at 7:30!?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2007

This was the nearest hotel to Nijmegen that we could find that was not fully booked for the night we needed, despite being a weekday. We arrived in the evening and on discovering just how far it was from the centre of Nijmegen, we were pleased that it was a hotel *and* restaurant.

Uh-oh. We had arrived a little after 8pm and were told that the hotel restaurant stopped serving food at 7:30! The receptionist was able to book us into a restaurant about 5 minutes' taxi drive away, but even this stopped serving before our two other colleagues arrived on a later train!

This was already the second issue we had had. On arrival we discovered that the bookings for the five of us were at different rates for the same standard of room. These had been booked by a secretary all at the same time, presumably via a booking website, and we had been told one rate on our paperwork. Nevertheless, it appeared impossible to get the same advised (lower) rate for all of us when we signed in. Not the end of the world, but annoying.

Other than that, personally my stay was OK. Nothing special, but OK. The front of the hotel was being renovated and one of my colleagues complained that this was disruptive to his sleep (I think it was the smell of paint). It suprised me that the hotel was renting out rooms for which building work was actively taking place immediately outside the windows. I was glad that I had been allocated a room at the other side of the hotel.

Reasonable public areas and facilities but the rooms are a great let down! Very basic,not well cleaned and cramped.
No air - conditioning in the hotel and surrounded by woods with lots of mosquitoes buzzing around your head during the night and biting!!
The hotel had no solution to the problem.
I would recommend taking your own mosquito plug if you have to stay here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2007

We stayed here when we'd go antiquing - or to the flea market at Cuijk. Very convenient location -- nice and out of the way. It is somewhat nestled in the woods in a residential area. LOOK for the sign, which is near a long row of trees that line both sides of the road. I drove past it several times before getting it right.

Be warned - we arrived late at night once (at 9 pm), and the restaurant had just closed. I threw my kids back into the car, and began the hunt for an open restaurant . There were plenty in the area, but they were ALL closing around the same time! Finally,
we saw the golden arches... ahhhhh! Not too far from the hotel - and it was the only place open!

Hotel is clean, breakfast was very nice (typical Euro breakfast, with lots of choices - kids liked it). Stayed there at least 3 times.
I usually only selected hotels w/pools (so the kids could have some fun), and if I recall correctly, this hotel DOES have a pool. Forgive me if I'm wrong!

Staff is friendly & helpful. If you're travelling w/children, call the hotel directly and ask to see if they have a "family" room - much bigger, not too much more expensive. They may not have them anymore - but it's worth a shot.

Very pleasant, helpful staff, good room, great for a range of activities, easy cycle or bus into city centre. Ideal choice for a varied visit to the area. Would certainly stay there again.
