All round Fantastic hotel
  • + Great looking hotel, great restaurant, great staff, nice bar. The only thing that lets it down are the beds.
  • We were in a comfort deluxe room and the beds were so uncomfortable. 2 singles beds pushed together with matteress tops that don't meet make for some pretty uncomfortable sleeeping. What is wrong with a double bed in a double room. A member of the reception staff was quite rude to me but another stepped in and sorted my problem in a totally professional way.
  • * my tip Eat in the restaurant....... but make sure you are hungry first because you get a lot.
7.8
  • (Travelling alone)
Comfortable room, no local amenities or shops, highly seasoned meals
  • + Coffee at Breakfast greatly improved from previous visits to the hotel. Checking in and out very straightforward.
  • On this visit, there seemed to be a shortage of restaurant / kitchen staff, and the service was slow. The choice / preparation of the meals caused me some problems with chili in the vegetables, and generally too much SEASONING in all the meals.
  • * my tip There is a car petrol station a short walk away, where you can buy biscuits, chocolate and some toiletries etc. There are some walks in the forested area adjacent to the hotel.

8.0
  • (Families with older children)
Short stay, perfect bed and breakfast
  • + great beds. Maybe you might consider to make a few special rooms for people with bed bug allergy. My daughter has it and she always gets sick after staying in hotels. we bring her own pillow.
  • the only downside was the bathroom. I thought it was fairly old and the overall feeling was not positive.
6.4
  • (Older couples)
Easy access from motorway, good breakfast.
  • + The rooms being situated away from the main part of the hotel, kept the noise level down from the main hotel. However, if you have a noisy neighbour then you lose the peace and quiet. Easy access from the motorway with ample parking. Breakfast was very impressive with a wide selection available.
  • Lots of stairs which could put people off, and maybe the distance between the restaurant and the bedrooms. The rooms are very dark and a bit sombre looking.
7.8
  • (Travelling alone)
Ideally placed for Emmen, Assen and Groningen airport
  • + Very handy for business in Assen, Emmen & Hoogezand and also close to Gronigen Airport.
  • If you're a light sleeper the early morning traffic noise can be heard if your room is at the front of the hotel.

9.0
  • (Older couples)
  • + Considering how near a major road the hotel is, the surroundings are beautiful and so easy to get around on a bicycle. It is also very easy to reach other areas to explore.
  • The Fitness Centre should be much bigger

  • (Other)
  • + New bar looks good.
  • Shower-head was not firmly fixed and kept moving. Unable to use the pay film channel - no signal.
8.2
  • (Older couples)
  • + The hotel was quite impressive and the service was very good, helpful and friendly.
  • Location. Quite a lot of light industry in close proximity but not much else. We also had the motorway on our side of the hotel so it was quite noisy with the windows open
8.6
  • (Older couples)
  • + You have a nice hotel. It's a shame that your telephone and internet arrangements led me to conclude that you take advantage of your clients and I will not stay with you again.
  • I am very upset about your wireless internet and international call arrangements. The wireless arrangement took my money twice without allowing me to get on the www or to my email. I then used your phone service (which someone told me cost .50 euro/min) and was shocked when I recieved a bill for 5 euro/min (~$150 for two 15 minute calls). Rates should be posted in the hotel room. I feel very taken advantage of and will not stay at your hotel again.
