“Very good hotel in quiet environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

This hotel is situated in the forest nearby Zeist, is located out on a rural road with nothing else nearby. So you need to ride at least 10 minutes to reach Zeist or Maarn.
The hotel is nice and the staff is good. Rooms are spacious and the patio/courtyard is very nice. The food is okay, the breakfast is good and with a lot of choice.
The hotel is a good basecamp to go out riding a bicycle. Amersfoort, Wijk bij Duurstede are nice places to visit by bice

Room Tip: The back side is most quiet, I would not recommend the rooms in the ' basement' because of...

I was booked in this hotel by Dutch colleagues as I was speaking at a conference nearby. We arrived early evening and I was very efficiently booked in by the very peasant reception staff. Extremely welcoming and the reception area looked modern and well furnished.

The room was large and clean. It had everything I needed although it did feel quite dated. The bathroom in particular could do with an update. Again it was a good size and clean but overall looked tired. The bed was comfortable and I had a good sleep.

My colleagues had arranged a dinner at the hotel. The food was excellent quality, well prepared and well presented. The perch main course was excellent with fresh and well cooked local vegetables. Chocolate desert was first class. The service again efficient and pleasant without being overbearing or imposing. The overall atmosphere was relaxed and perfect for our needs as a large group.

A walk after dinner is difficult as the hotel is isolated and with little garden. I was aware there were leisure facilities but did not have opportunity to try.

Overall very good. Rooms could improve but pleasant experience and very well trained staff.

This hotel may be in Zeist, but is located out on a rural road with nothing else nearby. Downtown Zeist is a 15 minute bus ride away. The hotel is nice and the staff is good. Rooms are spacious and the patio/courtyard is very nice. The food is okay, but expensive because there is nowhere else to eat unless you take the bus into Zeist. While we would stay here again, we would probably stay closer to Zeist or Utrecht.

A quiet and nice place with a very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant is excellent with good food at reasonable prices. The room was clean and big enough, but the matress was way too soft - almost a hammock.

For work my company booked a night stay at Hotel Oud Londen, some miles away from my destination.

I arrived around 19.30 at the hotel and after parking my car find my way to the lobby. The lobby looks quite modern when dark. There is an open fireplace with something of a led-light wall above it in funky purple colors. But that's the most modern thing you'll find in the interior of this hotel.

Check-in was done by a friendly lady at the reception and I got a old fashioned key for room 55. As I needed to do some work, I inquired about internet access and the lady at the desk said that WiFi access could be bought for 1, 3 or 24 hours. I chose the 3-hours option, costing 2,50 euros. Which isn't much, but in these days complimentary WiFi is to be expected in a business oriented hotel, isn't it?

I found my way to room 55 easily, but the halls itself are looking worn and very late 80's/early 90's. The same could be said about the room. Worn carpet, outdated wallpapers, lights and bathroom. A plus is that the toilet and bathroom are seperated. The room itself was quite spacious and has a balcony. An LCD TV hangs off the wall above the desk, which isn't handy when looking at the TV while working at the desk.

On to the bed. A plus was that the bed was one big matrass, in stead of the common two beds shoved together. However, the bed was too soft for my liking, it felt like a hammock. Despite that, I had a good sleep.

The bathroom provided the normal ammenities like soap, showergel and shampoo, as well as four towels. The shower itself was clean, but very low on power.

Breakfast was a normal and standard buffet. Fresh bread, warm eggs and no watery orange juice, so I can't fault it. Nice staff too!

All in all, I had a good nights rest at Oud Londen. The hotel does what it needs to do, but it also needs a serious update to more modern interior design standards, or they risk loosing out. The fireplace near the reception is a nice beginning.

If you are around Zeist, make sure you stay at this Hotel. I had a great experience! Staff is really nice and friendly, rooms are extremely comfortable and you can choose patio or garden view (I liked the garden view with balconies), at night is really relaxing to stay in the balcony enjoying the quietness of the place. Beds are very comfortable too.
If you have a chance make sure you have lunch and dinner at the hotel, their Restaurant and Brasserie is great, nice menu, kind staff, and food is delicious. great selection of coffees and teas.
They are very well equipped for events and groups too. also they have a heated pool and you can relax on steam and dry saunas.
Great stay. I really recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with garden view and patio, the ones on basement floor counts with a great garden view...
