“Enjoyable stay at Hotel Sparrenhorst”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

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.

Only stopped one night but arrived late and the kitchen still serverd me after the 'offical' 9:30 closure ..

Breakfast is excellent and the chef happily cooks eggs/bacon etc in front of you in the morning.

a very comfy bed ... nothing to complain about ... and free wifi !

We booked this hotel as a "mystery hotel" on the dutch website weekendjeweg.nl. The price for two nights was ridiculously low and included full breakfast and late checkout on Sunday (5PM). The hotel is situated in the woodlands of the Veluwe, just outside the city center of the neat little town Nunspeet. If you want to walk in the woods, these start right outside the hotel grounds. Amenities in the hotel are great: swimming pool, sauna and free wireless internet. The breakfast buffet is ample and is served until late on Sunday. Even the hotel restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The hotel staff was helpful and welcoming, even to a family with a small child.
All in all, excellent value for money and a good place to come back again.

We stayed 1 night at this hotel. The room was not very spacious, yet large enough. It was clean. The beds were not as confortable as you would expect. In the early morning a group of Indian tourists gave us an early 'wake-up call' by going loudly through the corridors. On a sunday there's Breakfast untill 12h. It was very generous and there was more than enough (also at 1130u, when we had breakfast). We had free use of bicycles from hotel. All the staff at the hotel was very friendly. No free WIFI, which is really not 2012 anymore!

For the second time (in two years) I stayed at NH Sparrenhorst together with my mother, we really enjoyed our weekend (Saturday-Monday). Before reading this whole review please bear in mind that this is based on my own experiences as a leisure traveller and due to the fact that I am a student Hotelmanagement I would like to give an overview about the hotel and its services as clear as possible.

We checked in at Saturday the 31st of March 2012 and we were welcomed by a friendly receptionist who explained everything about the hotel (dinner, breakfast hrs...). Due to the Earth Hour there was a special movie evening organized at the theater of the hotel and there was a special movie menu foreseen at the restaurant (OINC). Our hotelroom was well-cleaned and smelled nice. Apart from the dated bathroom it was nice equipped (with excellent beds). Last year we mentioned that the towel rack was too small for letting dry two bath towels and that there were missing coathooks e.g. for bathrobes but to our regret they did not take it into consideration.

The fitness and relax center (swimming pool, sauna) were in good state of repair. After calling the reception they immediately switched on the sauna as mentioned at check-in. The water of the swimming pool was clean and warm. The first evening we enjoyed a surprise (4-courses) menu at OINC which was very delicious. There is a possibility to eat à la carte either (we did last year) and even then they serve mouth watering courses. To be honest this restaurant is the best restaurant I have ever visited in Benelux, France and Germany at hotels with the same rating. The breakfast room, which is situated near the restaurant, is nice furnished and decorated. You can eat as it were in the middle of the wood. The breakfast is a continental one including anti-ox with fresh fruit and vegetables. It gives you new and positive energy for the rest of the day.

At NH Sparrenhorst there is a possibility to hire bicycles. It is not expensive and they are really good. The hotel is situated in the wood and so surrounded by beautiful nature. It is a nice place to have a walk (near the hotel as well) or cycling trip with the free maps available at the reception. The receptionists are ready to help you finding the most proper/beautiful trip.

The second evening (Sunday) the restaurant was closed and were we obliged to have a dinner at the bar. It's a shame because it doesn't feel that comfortable to eat at a place you link with the lunch or tea-time. Due to the fact that it is a space with high ceilings it isn't a really pleasant room apart from the dimmed lights and candles. The design of OINC is much nicer. The staff members (same as in the restaurant) did a great job, explained everything about the menus and were really polite and friendly to talk with.

At check-out we mentioned that the hotel chain made a mistake by publishing the menu prices of the restaurant two euros cheaper than they are in reality. It's a pity that they did not change it after two weeks. They do understand that the guest's feedback is important but it seems to be that they leave it out of account. Further on I can let you know that some of the pictures at the NH website can maybe give you a wrong image about the hotel but it is a nice and modern hotel to stay, with good facilities/services and friendly staff members.

My wife and I stayed here over Christmas while visiting relatives. We booked a superior room. Upon arrival we noticed a continuous noise in our room which turned out to be the elevator motor turning on and off all the time. A little confused as to why these rooms were considered superior we went back to the front desk and asked about it. After an unnecessary discussion, we were offered standard rooms since all superior rooms were located like the one we just left. Afraid not to get a good night's sleep we decided to settle for the standard room, which was far away from the elevator, but can only be described as sub-standard. The carpet was full of stains, the balcony full of leaves, the bath room old fashioned in function and design etc.
Breakfast was ok, actually the best part of the stay. The staff was mixed, upon check-in rather unfriendly (probably because of the change of rooms) at check-out very friendly (different people) I don't think I'll go back

The hotel is located n a beautiful area in the woods of Nunspeet. It might be very nice there when the sun is shining, but if you go there in the foggy and raining winter season it is rather depressive.
The interior architect has most probably got his diploma in a free evening course. The rooms look as charmless, functional and cold as I can imagine a room in a monastery could look like. In addition to this if you don’t ask for a king size bed you only get the very old fashioned 90cm large beds. Unfortunately the only rooms having king size beds are multifunctional rooms which are used as conference rooms most of the time. Therefore the beds are foldaway beds and I always had the impression to sleep in a wardrobe (see pictures).
If you want to watch TV don’t forget to take your glasses or the binoculars with you as the TV screen is not only very small. But in addition to this it is fixed on the wall of the other side of the room. Fortunately there was a Nespresso professional coffee machine in the room which helped to have a good start of the day.
