We had stayed before (August 2011) and knew to expect a very nice stay.
We were welcomed by a very pleasant receptionist who spoke good English. She did not just hand us the room key and point to the lifts. She took us to our room and showed us how everything worked. Really helpful.
There is plenty of parking in a free small town car park across the quiet street from the hotel this time we used the hotel's small free car park. There is good and easy to use WiFi throughout the hotel. We had dinner in the hotel which was fairly good and tasty with large portions and a high calorie content. Stick to one course. We also used a restaurant nearby on our previous visit which was also good.
The bathroom had all high quality fittings and a very good wet room style large shower cubicle. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. There was a small balcony with two chairs. It had good aircon & heating.
The hotel is a large town centre type but has lovely small hotel behaviour.
Breakfast was OK buffet style. Nice uncut bread. Bespoke cooked eggs were offered.
The town is small friendly and very pleasant. The location was perfect for our first night in The Netherlands and is only 2.5 hours drive from Rotterdam ferry port and the link to the UK.
The nearby Huis Singraven and its very pretty estate are worth a visit.
