Stayed here for the MotoGP Dutch TT at Assen. At a guess it's only 25 minutes from the circuit. Hotel was lovely and clean. Excellent staff and the Restaurant was superb. They had some cracking beers on offer. Will definitely be back next year

Check in was slow as it was busy, however the staff were friendly. The room was very small, and old, and some of the lamps didn't work. The bathroom was small but adequate. The room was stuffy, and if you opened the window, you got all the traffic noise as well as noise from people outside. The breakfast was average... More

This delightful and charming hotel was one of the best we have ever stayed in, why ?because of the staff, the extraordinary service and Salig ( beyond delicious food)! We highly recommend you visit. It is less than 15 min walking distance to the Dierentuin Zoo.

The food was excellent and the hotel is close to the Zoo and the city centre of Emmen. Free parking. In the restaurant we had a good 4 course dinner, it was very good. The carpaccio... More

We were here for a trip to Drente. We asked the hotel staff for rental bikes and everything was nicely arranged. After the bike trip we were treated to drinks on the interior terrace followed by dinner in the restaurant. Everything good. The room is spacious and clean, the beds are good. Two small issues: the bathroom is outdated and... More

Make sure you ask for the refurbished rooms to select from. It is in no way 4 stars but at best 3+. Breakfast is EXCELLENT, as is... More

Really easy to find. Turned up on two motorcycles and were immediately offered use of a garage for secure parking. Had asked a double bed and were upgraded on check in to fulfill that request. Huge comfy bed, great shower and lovely breakfast. An easy stroll to Emmen centre, would definitely stay again.

Not sure about the artwork but at least it made the hotel easy to find! We thought it was great value for money. Very friendly staff, very clean & comfortable, and an excellent breakfast. Would definitely use again if in the area.

Had a good stay in the Ten Cate. Staff were very friendly and cheerful. We had a family room, and the twin beds were in a separate room, which was nice. Room was very spacious but the walls were thin as we could hear traffic from the quiet residential street nearby clearly. The wifi did not work in the room... More
