The Echoput is located at a historic spot in the middle of the Kings Domain Forest. It however doesn't echo anything historic other than royal. It offers various places to relax, whether it be the terraces, the bar or the swimming pool. An all-weather luxury experience. And did

We spent a night here in a very spacious room with very modern but comfortable furnishings. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was spotlessly clean! The surrounding area is forest and gorgeous! We will stay there again when we are in the neighborhood.

To get off to a good start of the new year, we booked a 2 night game package at the Echoput, which is famous for its game dishes. We were looking for a relaxing stay in a luxurious environment with food to match. Unfortunately we came away disappointed. To start with the hotel,

Dear Mr./Ms. Rodnet, Your feedback has been received by our team with great appreciation. Thank you very much for your time! We feel very sorry that your New Year stay with us was not really as how you have expected it to be.We are glad and excited that you enjoyed some qualities of the room which we have intended to please our valuable guests with. We wish you could have let us know your needs for bathrobes so we could bring them to your door like other rooms. That to say, having everything pleasantly presented in the room for you was what we could have done better. It is a shame that the design of the sinks might have made your experience in the room a little uncomfortable. Same goes with our heating system as it was designed in a way that would be consistent throughout the hotel and hence, cannot be adjusted directly. But perhaps we could serve you some hot and soothing coffee and tea sided with gourmet sweets next time? As we are going through a transitional phase with the bar being refurbished, the Goes Wild concept and other important aspects, our wellness facilities are of course under consideration, too. In the meantime, we always have extra bath towels, mineral water and bathroom toiletries available for your free use at all times in our wellness facilities. We hope that the next time you come back, our vintage bar would be as indulgent and eye-catching as it should be. Our Goes Wild concept, which your game arrangement was a part of, is a rather a fun divergence from the rest of our hotel concept. It features the casual traditional Dutch hunting culture and cuisine with a slight touch of the vintage gentlemen-club feel. We are sorry that the dinner on your first night with our Goes Wild menu was not what you were looking forward to. But we are so delighted to know that the fine-dining experience of yours on the second night in our restaurant was rather enjoyable as it is, after all, our specialty. Your interest and knowledge in wines made us think that perhaps we could take the initiative to show you next time our humble wine cellar with quality wines that we have been proudly collecting over the decades. Our team is rather a young team like you have noticed but there is a passion for professional and personal hospitality in each of us that we would love to show to you, our valuable guests. We thank you for choosing us this time. May you wish to consider us next time for your holiday getaway in the midst of nature, we would be beyond joyful to serve you right! Have a nice day Kind Regards, Sharon Nijkamp - Chef Front-Office

On the website the hotel describes itself as a Luxurious five star hotel. Although it's definitely not a bad hotel, five stars seems heavily exaggerated. We booked a Grand Echoput room. There were quite a lot of stains and dust everywhere. And there were silverfish in the

Dear RubenB_12, Your very detailed feedback has motivated us more today on our progress to improving De Echoput experience. Thank you very much for that! We feel very sorry that your stay with us was not quite as how you had expected for your special anniversary. We are beyond delighted knowing that our speciality, the food, was able to satisfy your dining experience. As a sustaining family business, we try to focus on personal and professional hospitality that we have to offer to you with utmost passion from every team member. Perhaps we could bring to your table some complimentary hot and easeful coffee charmed with a crispy croissant and fresh butter next time? We understand how the silverfish was surely not a pleasant sight to have. It is unfortunate that once in a while, we are visited by these little creatures from the surrounding nature. For that reason, we tend to not interfere with the harmless nature, our most valuable aspect, so much and hope that our guests understand us on this as well. That to say, we are making plans on inspecting each and every room to recondition the “rookie” mistakes that we may have presented to our valuable guests. Therefore, the AC and heating systems, the curtains, the dust, the swimming pool and the floors shall be inspected and appropriately improved in a manner of time. As we are, indeed, in a transitional phase, there are a lot of work to be done in order to make your experience with us as indulgent and complete as possible. We thank you for choosing De Echoput and hope that you have had fun with us! We would love to welcome you once again for your upcoming anniversary as a more complete five-star experience and tasteful fun shall be promised. Kind Regards, Sharon Nijkamp - Chef Front-Office
