I have visited Villa Augustus twice now, in October 2011 and again in November 2012, and while looking for somewhere special to eat with family on our next trip May 2013 I came across the reviews for this restaurant. Both previous dinners have been superb, beautiful setting friendly helpful staff ( I do not speak Dutch) and fantastic food. Shall...

I gave stayed here many times, though this was my first visit for a while.The rooms in the water tower are always interesting, though I don't like the ones where you have to go down some stairs to the bathroom. Comfortable bed, kettle, free wifi, Set in its own gardens which provide produce for its very good (and popular) restaurant...

We loved this hotel, but be prepared for a room out of the ordinary. Most of the rooms are in a converted 19th century water-tower, with riveted steel floors and semi circular shapes. Great views from the upper floors, and quiet with good Internet service throughout the property. Best place to stay in the area with a fantastic restaurant.

We stayed at the Villa Augustus for 3 nights during early February this year for my birthday, all the staff (and we mean all the staff) were very helpfull, friendly and could not do enough, the restaurant menu was outstanding and very good quality. Their markt shop was a great place to browse and to buy. Breakfast was good and...

I have stayed here a couple of times, both times in Garden Rooms. The rooms are eco-friendly and very comfortable. The bathroom is magnificent with a huge wetroom area and a couple of washbasins, the bed is huge and very comfortable. I also appreciated the abundance of power points for all my phone and computer chargers. The staff are very...

What a great place. We stayed one night in the Lantern Room. I cannot comment on the other rooms but the Lantern Room is well worth booking if you can. Access to the viewing area is via a spiral staircase. The Bedroom is large and like the rest of the property a strange mix of styles which seems to work...

This is one of those hotels you either love or hate. I am firmly in the first category. It is situated in a unique building with wonderful grounds. The food is fresh, local and wonderful. The rooms are basic but have all the necessary conveniences and I enjoy that they all seem to have different characteristics. For seasoned road warriors...

My business takes me to a lot of different hotels.. some better some worse than others.. Villa Augustus is an exception. It is like staying with friends in an awesome building and nice gardens right on the river.. The staff are very friendly and always give you a smile. But like friends the staff at the restaurant are.. let's say...

We are Australians touring this wonderful country and the unique water tower of Villa Augustus was our favourite accommodation for our holiday. A brilliantly clever water tower renovation results in expansive rooms, very high ceilings, chic modern bathrooms, practical bedroom decor - very comfy beds. If you are lucky, you get a view overlooking the river, or the mega-million euro...

An experience for people who love design, and a sustainable lifestyle. Villa Augustus, a modest name for a Hotel, restaurant and market/shop in one, is the kind of eco-chic place that's still rare in the world. The venue, on the edge of the small harbor city Dordrecht, used to be a water tower and wetlands. The tower hosts now two...
