This well is nicely preserved on the premices. The hotel has a spacious car park but no covered room for bicycles. Booking via email was easy... More

A lovely hotel and lovely room and the staff were extremely helpful and polite. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel but breakfast was excellent - fully recommend. The setting in the woods immediately relaxes you. I loved it!

Very nice, big rooms. Excellent location to explore the wonderful nature (we had our bikes with us, the hotel also has bikes that can be rented). Breakfast is excellent, although a bit pricy (22€ per person). For that price, there should at least be enough of everything (in our case, we ran out of yoghurt on day and on bacon... More

Apeldoorn doesn't have too many hotels but this is, in my opinion, the best one. The biggest downside is that you really need a car because it's 5km out of town. The bath in my room was enormous and it is very peaceful in the surrounding forest.

Well located modern hotel with nice rooms. Great starting point for bike rides in the woods surrounding the hotel. A great restaurant with some very special menues. I can recommend De Echoput for a long weekend. Ensure you make a reservation in the restaurant well in advance. It's worth it.

This is a nice hotel in a quite location. Rooms are nice size and comfortable. Love that they have dual showers in bathrooms. Things to improve, have more available staff in the bar area. Usually you need to look for somebody to get server or pay your bill. Need to do something about the fitness area, it is a joke.... More
