Great food and service but very pricey for Venlo. Had the duck carpacio? with nuts for entree and cod fish as Main. Both were of high quality.

The menu can hardly be called experimental but the quality and preparation of the food is simply very good. Expect traditional dishes including pheasant, salmon, cod, deer, risotto all very well prepared and at reasonable prices. The restaurant itself is a bit unstylish but the scenery and view are wonderful.

Reasonable Quality food although it would have been nice to be asked how I wanted my steak! (Soup/Steak/Desert)

Food overall is pretty good. Unfortunately the service tends to be extremely slow even for European standards. If you want a quick dinner before going to your room this is not the place. Prices are a little high for what you get so the value is not the best.

We went there with a party of eight for the High Tea offer. Unfortunately the place did not live up to its reputation. The tea water was rather cold and the food served was solid convenience and pre made, all available at the Albert Hein. At first the service was OK but later on I had the impression that we... More

Stayed there during a business trip. Location is pretty awesome very close to an artificial lake. Outdoor bar is perfect, especially in summertime, to have a beer or breakfast outside, facing the lake. Rooms are pretty roomy, and the furniture is very nice. There is also the possibility for having meal in the hotel...and I would certainly recommend to listen... More

Very good standard of hotel in idyllic setting with terrace and lake. Restaurant is calm and slow, but a little overpriced. Good, but slow service breakfast. Check your bill carefully. I was charged for 2 bottles of Prosecco instead of 2 glasses! Restful, edge of town location, but hard to locate without satnav.

Life is wonderful when sitting outdoors by a lovely pond, watching the swans and dining well. Service is good, but the pace is slow, appropriately so in my opinion.

It is a place where relax is a must and the personnel is an example of kindness, with very good rooms and food. The morning breakfast is among the best I ever found and anyway at any time the restaurant is ready to give solutions to your wishes. The only limit, due to the local habit, is the very low... More
