We lodged in Villa Augustus with two kids for two nights (Family rooms).
The biggest rooms are located in a wooden cottage in the garden, they are spacious and sport a castle bunk (kids were loving it).
The Hotel has a dependance where they built a large restaurant, a shop where bio products are sold and a cafe. Stylish and nice to the eye.
However, we noticed that the room wasn't totally clean, you won't find hairs under your sheets, especially if they are not yours.
The Restaurant is neither bad nor great, service is above average however.
Personnel in the hotel and in the restaurant was extremely kind, to be fair, we found that everybody in Dordrecht is kind.
Besides the flaws, we recommend the hotel, it's a nice staying.
