We used this hotel as the starting point for visiting Maastricht and other smaller cities such Valkenburg. It is situated in the hilly(for Dutch standards) countryside just 20 min drive to Maastricht. As the name tells itself, it is connected with a buddhism and serves also for theirs conventions. At the time of our stay, only two or three rooms were taken, which was splendid. Namely, hotel is a nice bulidling, but the walls are thin as a paper. Despite that I slept there like a baby. We were given the oval room on the second floor, because of all the windows I felt like I was in opera box. Otherwise the room was basic and a bit obsolete. But it had anything you need. The best was the slepping quality and the view of a green meadow with two bulls pasturing.
The breakfast was served in a cosy living/dinning room. Because of the buddhist nature of the hotel, the breakfast was vegetarian, using only local bio products. I must admit, I am more like a meat person, but it was a whole new experience.
The village is typically well settled as everything in The Netherlands and you have everything you need. Some restaurants, bars, small grocery, gas station, train station with fast connection to Maastricht and bike rentals. It is worth mentioning that you can reach the city of Valkenburg in 20 minutes by bike.
All in all Kadampa is a splendid place if you look for peaceful, cosy place to stay away from the everyday problems.
