We stayed here for a weekend, and enjoyed the beautiful garden, surrounding scenery and wonderful breakfast that came with our overnight stay. The food was fresh and bountiful. The views from the dining room gorgeous, and the staff warm and friendly. We will definitely return.

Not easy to find but what a stunning place on a fantastic location. First time 2014 we had dinner and last time we stayed overnight in the Kings garden room. Nice wines, delicious creative menu and one of the best breakfasts we ever had. Nice and friendly staff. A special location for us. Only minus: moskitos at the end of... More

When you love a simple (and relatively cheap) but good hotel and lots of great nature around the corner, Oortjeshekken is the place to be. Friendly staff, good food (a very nice breakfast is served for the guests) and a nice garden behind the hotel. We did not have a bath, but a very simple shower and toilet but we... More

Spend a long weekend at Oortjeshekken and completely revitalized. It has a unique atmosphere bringing you back to the good old days. Enjoy the local beach, ride a bike or just enjoy. At night it can be somewhat noisy but it dies done around 22:30.

Set along the South border of the Waal river on a lingering dyke, opposite a large swimming lake, Bisonbaai, where herds of wild horses and highlanders enrich the stunning landscape, with storks and spoonbills ("lepelaars") on the side, there you will find Oortjeshekken, a beautiful old inn, with its great terrace, very nice food, its cosy old bar, its superfriendly...

Oortjeshekken is a small lodgement less than 10 rooms, in the suburbian of Nijmegen. Environment is great and service perfect. But than again, please notice no television, no wifi in the room and no mini bar nor airco. Food is average to okay. I love it, like I love monastries.

Oortjeshekken really has the best of both worlds. It is right in the middle of the Ooijpolder (great views, lovely walks, nature, silence), and at a very close distance from the lovely city of Nijmegen. The rooms are not luxurious but comfortable, and have great period charm. Ours, the Koninckskamer, had a wonderful view of the garden (and beyond) and... More

Nice, cosy hotel at the dike of the wide river Waal, not far from Nijmegen. There are bicycles for rent, or you can walk in the wild nature of the Ooij Polder with special horses.. We enjoyed the food of the resturant outside on the charming terrace, Staff friendly but service was slow. Rooms comfortable, good for reading, there is... More

Sober but friendly, familylike hotel on a fantastic location, next to the river Waal. Nature in reach. Wild herds of cows and horses roam nearby. Nice rooms, nice food en friendly staff. Extensive breakfast. Nijmegen and Arnhem nearby for the neccessary cultural activities.

We went there for diner after a splendid day at the Bisonbaai (just across the road) but found the whole place a big disappointment! Service was below all standards, the food was mediocre for the price they charged - we even had to pay for a desert we never had: we asked for some cheese for desert but we were... More
