My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights recently, as we were visiting family for a celebration. We had a very satisfactory stay at this hotel tucked away on the edge of the woods.
We had a standard hotel room on the 4th floor, which was more than adequate for our purposes, as we were out during the day most of the time. Had we needed to spend more time there in the daytime, we probably would have preferred to stay in a more spacious room.
The room was furnished in modern, rather sparse furniture, much of which was fitted to make the room work as efficiently as possible. The bathroom also was adequate, however the tub/shower arrangement was quite awkward, necessitating clambering into the large tub and standing at the far end to use the shower. The tub was large, and if we had wanted to take a bath, we probably would have enjoyed the experience, but for showering it was tricky, especially for someone like me who has mild mobility issues. Each time I climbed into and out of the tub I held on for dear life, worried about slipping and falling. However, all went well, and the bathroom came well equipped with all necessary toiletries. A warning to North American visitors such as ourselves, though, there are no washcloths available. I had remembered this from staying elsewhere in The Netherlands and had brought our own, and I was glad I had done so.
The beds consisted of two twin beds beside each other, each with its own twin sized duvet. This worked OK once we got used to having limited 'blanket overlap' to help keep warm, as this was during a very cold time and we do not like having the heat on during the night.
There was adequate storage space, two good chairs for sitting in, good desk space, and something I really enjoyed, a kettle with mugs and tea makings! I often travel with our own small kettle, but obviously not when we go to Europe, and I was glad to find this.
Coffee is always available in the lobby as well.
The front desk staff is pleasant, helpful and professional, as were the cleaning staff and in the breakfast room.
We paid extra for the breakfast buffet, which was lovely. Great coffee, excellent selection of juices, fruits, yoghurt, continental breakfast items, and eggs and bacon, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely breakfasts there each morning, as the room looks out over a nice patio and the woods, where there are many walking trails.
The hotel is definitely a business-oriented hotel with conference rooms etc., but we were fine staying there as non-business visitors. We did not visit the pool, gym, or any of the other restaurants, so cannot comment on those features.
Over all, we enjoyed our stay, and would have no hesitation in returning should the opportunity arise.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay, and should the opportunity arise, we would go back to this hotel.
