The De Havixhorst is one of the most memorable, comfortable and hospitable places I have ever lodged in 40 years of business travel. I have stayed for about 20 nights in the last 20 years.
Arrival is a delight. A large, welcoming firegrate warms the driveway and then you look up and see the classic architecture of the mid-18thC main building. Look up again and you will in all probability see the storks nesting on the chimneys!
The staff is courteous but not obsequious and entirely professional.
The food is 5* and the wine list exemplary.
If I had to criticise, my only grounds would be the size of the bedrooms. They are enormous and it is easy to lose one's way to the bathroom.
A great and hidden gem!
