“A comfortable Water Tower? This is different!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Just off the N3 link in Dortrecht, between the A15 & A16 motorways this is a small hotel with a big difference. It's worth the 10 or so minutes detour for a short stay or long weekend base just south of Rotterdam. Comfortable bed, spacious rooms without clutter or over styled it has retained its character with a feeling of belonging, A tricky one to get right but it's been achieved here with a nod to its past function. Quirky the hotel certainly is, with décor gathered from far afield by its travel rich owners but it seems to add to the feel rather than detracts.
The food is definitely home cooking style, matching the eco-friendly aspirations of the owners. Quality, locally sourced as far as possible and reasonably priced the meals were just right with no pretentiousness.
Fed up with bland chain hotels? This is one to try & the best recommendation is the fact that we will be back!

Room Tip: Advance booking is essential in high season, direct booking via website was easy

Great views from the 4th floor room, spacious if basic rooms, delicious breakfast and reasonably priced home cooked restaurant make this hotel a good choice. Added bonus of having a bike hire shop in the basement made rental very simple and provided a great way to see the nearby Biesbosch national park.
Maybe its just me, but no door and only half a wall dividing the bathroom from the main room was a little unnerving, but once you've agreed a system with your room companion this is less of an issue (may I reccommend a toilet song!).
Also, best to ensure you have a bike in the evenings to get around as its a km or so away from other restaurants (having said that the on site resturant is good).
Only thing it couldn't supply was the beavers, but we'll be back for those!

Room Tip: Agree a toilet song now!
