Reviewed May 15, 2011

This is a typical Dutch low quality hotel which looks good from pictures but then you get a big surprise once you actually spend some time there.

We spent some days there, with a 2 years old daughter. First they gave us a room with two tiny windows (similar to the boat cabin's windows but with no sea...): so no light, no air. Then they gave us another room with a window that could be opened just a little bit. It was very hot those days and one morning a genius decided to lift up the outside curtains, so the room was exposed to sun all day. Once we came back, we asked to put the curtains down but nobody was able to do it. After two hours (and many other complaints) finally they managed to put the curtains down but in the room it was already 30-35 degrees. The result was that we did not sleep all night because of heat. The day after we got our third room but we had to convince the personnel before getting it ("we have only executive rooms" was one argument: and we had booked an executive room.....).

Breakfast is poor in quantity and quality (Dutch standards...). Furthermore the tables are always dirty and full of dishes, spoons, forks, glasses, used by previous guests, simply because they do not have enough personnel to clean the tables. They do not have chairs for children.

The only 2 good points are the location, in a beautiful park, and the free internet.

Dear Mr./Mrs,

It is very unfortunate to hear that you were not satisfied witth your stay at our hotel. I regret that your complaints were not handled sufficiently. We do our utmost to give our guests an enjoyable stay. It is a shame that I did not have the chance to speak to you personally to solve these problems at the time.

Usually, we do get a lot of compliments about our extensive breakfast buffet, the rooms and the service given. Therefore we really regret your review and we hope to be able to proof that we are a full service hotel in the near future.

Kind regards,

Robbert Weddepohl

The service was great from the moment of check in until we left. The hotel was very clean throughout and comfortable. The room was quite spacious for a European hotel.

The location was easy to find and good for Amersfoort. We had a car and there was plentiful free parking. We didn't try public transport but for car owners it was right by the motorway for getting around the area.

We stayed over Easter with a ebay voucher so we had a good price / value relation.
room was fine , breakfast at first morning was chaotic as staff not able to cope with the large group that was there , follwoing days were much quieter and better . Freindly reception , very felxible and helpful .
Amersfoort is a lovely city to visit , we took dinner in the city as restaurant there had more flair than the hotel restaurant .

Althouh a little hard to find at first, this hotel is located near the main routes of Amerfoort, but it set in a quiet location off the roads.

We stayed here for 2 nights during a driving holiday around europe. We used it as a base for a day trip into Amsterdam. The train station is an easy 30min walk away or 10Euros in a Taxi, there are bus routes too but we didn't try them, the stop is about 5mins away. The Hotel is very clean, the rooms well fitted and big enough. With free internet access in the lobby and an impressive breakfast included in the price it made for a plesent stay.

Amersfoort is a nice place to visit, with lots of different types of food on offer in the centre. There is also lots to look at, if you ask at reception they will give you a very good city map with includes a walking tour to pick up the main sights.

A very good Hotel for the price, we paid about £40 (UK Punds) per night inc breakfast.

  • Liked — Free Internet in the Lobby
  • Disliked — Location is not too great if you don't have a car
  • Tips/Secrets — Search for the best deal, we saved 70% off the normal price.

We arrived at the Tulip Inn at 1:30PM and had to wait till 3PM to check in. We had a reservation and the hotel was fully booked. It was upsetting that they could not get a non-smoking room ready for us and that we had to wait. Check out time was at 10AM. I had to rush and get our things in order to vacate the room.
The rooms are standard-no minibar. The grounds are exquisite- in the forest with a beautiful patio/bar. The breakfast was super. There's free internet in the lobby and they are expecting wifi for a nominal fee in the future. The front desk told me the bus station was down the block -pretty long block 15 minute walk - maybe I misunderstood and got in the extra exercise.
If you have a car- this is the place to stay. It is near the major highways and easily accessible. If not, stay closer to town.

rooms were fairly small, but restaurant/bar were good. The hotel is a little far out if you don't have transport, but public transport as ever in Holland is good.
