“Fabulous location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

The castle is situated 5 kms outside of Maastricht and is beautiful! It has a lovely garden and cows in the fields in front, very picturesque.
The rooms are a bit dated but comfortable; they have started renovating them.
The staff is friendly and helpful and the free parking and WiFi are important advantages.
However, the restaurant is overpriced and quite below par, this needs to be upgraded! Dinner was not expensive (special offer) but average; breakfast was a big buffet (very good) but hugely overpriced at euro 16,50 per person!
It was a good experience and I would go again!

Good location and particularly like the WIFI which is free, available and of good bandwidth - well done on this. Has a great serpent in the garden whose head moves in the wind - fun! Dinner is good but lunch and breakfast have limited choice. Friendly staff and a nice bar area. Disappointed that there is no room service and not even a kettle in the room to make your own tea. Personally, also, I prefer more covers on the bed - they were sparse. But, overall, there are some strong pluses and I would not rule out staying here again, particularly for the setting.

I really enjoyed our weekend at this Hotel. It is outside of Maastricht but only 10 minutes to one of the Park & Walk car parks which are again about 10 minutes walk away from the central Vrijthof.The Castle is set in it's own grounds and is very picturesque.The grounds are lovely to walk around and give great views across to the Castle.
All the Staff we met were friendly and helpful and spoke very good English.
The room was nicely decorated but relatively basic, ( no bathtub, no tea & coffee making facilities).
We found the restaurant to be very good and the breakfast buffet was excellent with a large choice of hot and cold food.
The only things that seemed out of place were the plastic chairs scattered around the grounds.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to my friends.

This place is located 5km north of Maastricht, and you really do need a car to get to the centre, if you wanted to. Beautiful location and very nicely decorated building. The rooms are located behind the castle, in a separate building, and have a more modern feel to it. They are not luxurious, but this is to be expected for the price we paid (€82 per night). No bathtub or minibar.
Restaurant is good, with very good service and nice food. We enjoyed the Easter brunch, which was perfectly organized, and a tip for families with young children. Staff was friendly. All in all a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend staying here.

We had high hopes for this hotel: descriptions and reviews looked good.

The check-in went very smoothly, helped by friendly staff. We also were offered a welcome drink (biological juice).

The room (lower floor) was rather small, but we already knew this from earlier reviews. However once we opened the door, the very distinctive smell of the air fresheners immediately came to you. We had to open the windows to clear the air...

The beds were too soft, so in the morning I had a pain in my back from the bed. If you are a light sleeper you won't get too much rest here: you can really hear everything through the walls and ceilings. Everytime someone opens a door in the hallway you hear this loudly in your room.

We had checked that it was possible to come to the breakfast until 11am. We were there at 10.50 and made our choice from the buffet. There were about 10 people from the staff running around in the breakfast area: it really didn't give you a comfortable feeling. At 11.02 the main waiter came to all tables that were still eating, telling we had to leave the area as they had to prepare it for eastern brunch. Our plates were still full, and we should take everything to the bar. They could have told us this when we came in at the breakfast area, so we could immediately be seated in the bar area. Now we had to move everything to there, for which we passed. This really is something I have never experienced and find unacceptable.
