We made a last-minute decision to go to Otterlo for the park and museum. There was a reasonable room at the GCHK through booking.com, so I took it. Breakfast was included and the proximity to the park entrance made it an easy choice.
The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic. We had to give the door to our room a good shove to get inside. Our room was clean and basic--it looked like some updating had been done in the bathroom. I noted there was no hairdryer, but I did not ask for one as I didn't need it. All of the minimum requirements were there, including a comfortable bed and extra pillows in the cupboard.
We chose to eat dinner at the Sterrenberg down the road, and the choice was validated when we passed by and the GCHK's café was packed with loads families with young, boisterous children. (The Sterrenberg's restaurant was top rated for Otterlo on www.iens.nl, with GCHK running second) Breakfast the next morning, was more sedate, however and the breakfast buffet was perfectly good.
The staff stored our bags after check-out so we could spend the day in the park and cheerfully sorted us out for the bus back to the train at the end of the day.
Although no-frills, this hotel certainly met the need and the staff were definitely the highlight.
