The rather grand Hotel & Restaurant Carelshaven lies in the middle of the Twickel country estate. Just 5 minutes from the lovely centre of Delden and within walking distance of Twickel Castle. A 10-minute journey will take you to Hengelo or Enschede. Carelshaven is easily accessible by public transport.
In 1772, Carel George van Wassenaer Obdam, owner of the estate in the 18th century, ordered the construction of an inn and a little harbour with a transport crane on the Twickelervaart waterway; enabling bargemen to trade their wares with one another, namely wood and textiles. The first innkeeper, Nicolaas Böhmer, hung out the sign "Carelshaven" in 1776.
Carelshaven is an excellent haven for an overnight stay, a culinary dinner, an informal meeting or for a unique (wedding) party. Landgoed Hotel & Restaurant Carelshaven is surrounded by pretty gardens. The rooms are spread across the main building and the garden wing. The garden wing rooms come with a balcony or a terrace. All rooms are tastefully furnished and equipped with a bath or shower and a toilet, a hair dryer, a television, a telephone and a mini-bar. The hotel is renowned for its stylish restaurant serving excellent cuisine, and guests are treated to a lovely garden view in the sun lounge.Surroundings
