  • (Older couples)
  • + Beautiful hotel...lovely, comfortable rooms and baths. Good food in dining room.
  • Cost of internet is too high. Also, a la cart breakfast item should be offered in dining room. Not everyone wants to eat a huge buffet breakfast in the morning and pay 15 euros for it.

This is an excellent hotel with good facilities and helpful staff
  • + Staff at the hotel are very helpful, professional beyond the call of duty. The menue in the restaurant has improved substantially since our last stay last year. The location remains great, close to shopping and cultural facilities yet far enough from the beaten track to have an almost rural setting overlooking an always busy water way.

8.0
  • (Families with older children)
Quiet hotel with indoor pool & Sauna close by Zwijndrecht
  • + The pool was great,also the sauna, because the hotel itself is outside in the countryside of Zwijndrecht close by the water, so we still could do something. People from the reception had been very nice and friendly. The rooms have been great. Huge bathrooms and nice sized rooms to stay at.
  • They had a huge christmas party Friday nite - so the bar was closed and due the fact that the hotel was in the countryside and nothing else you could go to, because our children have been sleeping in the hotel room, that was very boring. Service at breakfast was very limited. At least your coffee or tea could be served at the table.

Modern, efficient hotel enjoying a superb country canal-side location.
  • + Superb location, clean, efficient with slightly cool, but efficient staff.

  • (Older couples)
  • + Staff are extremely friendly andhelpful location overlooking the river is excellent.Good walking and cycling facilities. Food in the restaurant excellent,breakfast and dinner both very good.
  • The frequent use of the hotel as a wedding reception venue leads to disturbance late at night when guests from reception events depart noisily.
8.6
  • (Families with young children)

8.0

6.8
  • (Travelling alone)
