    Excellent 7-day stay in Hotel Baars Harderwijk

    We stayed for a week while we were visiting family in nearby Ermelo. Baars is good value for money, very accessible to all parts of the village, and we enjoyed having a free permit given to us for parking our car. Very quiet location. Delicious buffet breakfasts. The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke English.

    No free Wi-Fi.

    “My tip: Request the permit for free car-parking if you have your own car.”

    Happy in Harderwijk

    Very comfortable hotel and great price. The staff were really helpful and friendly and we were sorry we could only stay for one night. We'll be back.

    Nothing really.

    Lovely Hotel with a great location

    The Staff were very accommodating and helpful.

    If I was to be picky, the rooms were quite hot, but they did supply a fan.

    Great location, clean hotel for reasonable price

    - Hotel Location - Room size - Furniture - Cookies - Internet + movie channel for flat price

    - Remote control for TV/Services terrible - Separate heavy door to WC & Bathroom - In tub, controls too low - Need larger window in room - Lifts old, creaky

    A good reasonably priced hotel

    The people at the reception were very kind and helpful. Real professionals! The restaurant was good and the location of the hotel was convenient. Free and safe parking.

    Not a good selection of soaps and other supplies in the bathroom

    Vriendelijke bediening in restaurant. Goed eten. Milieubewust: de lichten op de gang werken op sensoren. Prettige schone badkamer.

    Parkeerplaatsen in parkeergarage van het hotel zijn wat aan de krappe kant.


    Friends juli 2007

    The reception staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

    A steak was ordered well done, but was very pink inside. When asked to be cooked for longer, there was no apology or free drink for inconvenience.


    Travelling alone april 2007

    Peaceful environment, lots of restaurants nearby.

    In this room a separate TV and digibox.
