Since my first visit to this hotel in 1988 and several visits after that, this hotel changed a lot. It still is a member of the Bilderberg Group but no so luxurious anymore.
Our standard room had a good size, a flatscreenTV, no coffee/tea facilities, 2 armchairs, small desk, wardrobe, coat hooks and a convenient bathroom with free washgel and enough towels. Elderly or disabled persons can have problems with stepping in/out of the bathtub. No separate shower.
Since wifi is so common these days I find it incorrect that you have to pay for this in a 4 star hotel.
In my opinion, you can see the skills of the Chef in his recommanded 3 course meal. Well, for me this was a bit disappointing. The food overal was too salty. The meat was too dry, dessert too sweet and a bit dull. I think the many cooking shows on TV are making people more familiar with all sorts of ingredients and recipes so people expect a certain standard when dining out. Our meal had not that special twist that makes diner a (small) private party. Because I was disappointed I was offered a free after meal tea.
The Staff in the whole hotel have been very welcoming and courteous.
When you love nature then put on your walkingshoes. It’s possible to make short and long walks starting from the hotel. For us this is the main reason to come back another time.
(Although there is a railroad close by, we did not hear it at all.)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Personal, small scale hotel. Great setting in a forest, yet only 2,5 km's away from the historic centre of Venlo. The hotel has 82 non-smoking rooms, including 3 junior suites and 23 Executive rooms. The reception desk is manned 24/7. Free WIFI in all rooms and public area's. Great hotel for guests who also appreciate facilities for relaxation like fitness, swimming/sauna and running in the area. Leisure guests will appreciate the Wellness Center where they offer several treatments. The landscape and the Limburg culture (think of Roman life and the peat extraction) are truly unique and worth discovering and experiencing. The reception offers serveral cycling and walking trips. The region offers many shopping possibilities like in historic Venlo itself, Designer Outlet Roermond or just across the border in Germany. With kids you may visit Amusement Park Toverland or the attractive outside playground Klein Zwitserland on walking distance. ... more less
