I was in the Mitland for a week; had a business meeting.
The general quality is better than a typical 4-Star has (my experience). Great restaurant and bar. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Good service.

Some negatives:
If you get a room to the front side, it might be a bit loud.
The next bus stop is at least 5 min away.
The mini-bar makes noises.

This hotel is one of the best in utrecht, food and breakfast is great. Staff are friendly. The pool and the sauna is also worthwhile but don't forget your keys. The lake is also a really great scenery for the lakeside rooms, away from the city and very quiet at night.

Room Tip: Lake side rooms or rooms on the ground level are better

We stayed in the bridal suite and I have to say that it was a fantastic experience. The bed is very impressive, take a look on the hotelwebsite to see what I mean. Lovely view. Jaccuzi with changing lights, peekaboo bathroom (not son interesting when using the toilet). Lots of luxury but... to drink coffee no real cups, only throwaway cups...
Dinner was okay ,not very refined, just made the typical dutch way.
Breakfast was good, but they didn't refill the sandwiches and we ate at 8.30.

Set in a lovely lakeside location within a 20 min walk of the city centre this hotel is fantastic for money. Stayed for 5 days whilst on a course. Very quiet, great beds, very clean, good breakfasts (chef cooks omelettes, pancakes etc to order) and nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly and efficient staff. Didn't make use of the swimming pool, sauna or on-site bowling alley. Dined twice and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food.

A little way out of the city centre, (city centre accessible by bus) but with superb views over the adjacent park (worth paying extra for). Has all the facilities of a far more expensive hotel: swimming pool, sauna, gym but at very modest rates. Restaurant was also excellent: food fresh, well prepared and reasonably priced.Has a conference centre feel, but the staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and well appointed with tea and coffee in the room but oddly only paper cups.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for the park view.

Stayed here with my wife and two boys, 5 and 7. On the plus side, the breakfast was good with a wide range of food available. The boys loved the pancakes (freshly made while you wait). It's a nice location - by a lake, nice view and pretty quiet. Some staff were helpful, some not so much. Our eldest had an ear infection and the receptionist found a doctor, arranged an appointment and gave us directions. Couldn't ask for more. The receptionist working the next day was surly and aloof, so a bit of pot luck regarding the helpfulness of staff.
On the down side, well, if you go for a quiet hotel it is likely to be out of the way. This was no exception (this might give you an idea: the goats on the other side on the lake woke me up a few times one night!), which is why the extra fee for parking seems so unreasonable. It's not in the middle of town, and even when there was a conference held at the hotel, there were still plenty of spaces. So why should paying guests have to pay for parking in the middle of nowhere? The receptionist told me I could leave my car outside the car park but it might not be so safe. Gee thanks.
Bit of a story about the minibar: Upon arrival, one of my boys opened the minibar and took out a can. We tried to put it back but each time you pull open the minibar another can pops out and you are charged for it. It looked like we were going to be charged for three cans, but upon leaving I told the receptionist that we left the cans on top of the bar as we didn't intend to take anything and she deducted it from my bill. Can't say fairer than that.
Finally, if you're with kids, the bowling is a big plus and they do a great snack platter there. The area is also great for walks, but I would recommend hiring a car. (We hired with the Avis at Utrecht station - although it was a bit of a walk with two small kids to the Avis office).
All in all, a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a view over the lake as it is worth it - even if the goats on the other side start...

I booked the Hotel Mitland as a weekend getaway. The hotel was very nice, everything was clean. We had a tv in the room and a minibar which was very pricy. ( A coke can 3euros). We had to pay extra for parking which was 7.50€ a night. The Hotel describes that its a 5min walk to the city centre, but this isnt true we walked for at least 25 minutes and we are 25 years old. The pool and the spa are( steam room and a sauna) were nice, and included it the hotel price room. Around the hotel is a sport park and a little lake, which is very nice for a walk or to just be outside.
