    Sign posting could be more clearly, arrival during dark hours takes some concentration. A light above the wash bassin makes shaving easier.

    The room although would be great in winter was ruined as we where unable to sleep due to having no air con.. The bed was uncomfortable and the location was not good for our purpose, however that was due to our limited knowledge of the area when booking, we booked as it was advertised as emmen but this was not the case which resulted in a very expensive 3 days due to numerous Taxi”s.

    the room other than the bed was perfect. The breakfast was exceptional and the staff where friendly and helpful.

    - the swimming pool did not seem to be very clean - wifi might be slow sometimes - it is not possible to rent a bike for 1-2 hours, only for the whole day and it costs around 17 EUR (a lot for the country like the Netherlands where everyone use bikes)

    - delicious breakfast - great restaurant with wide variety of meals

    Beds were too warm. Hot in fact, so much so that neither of us could sleep for more than 3 hours. We suspect too much memory foam is the culprit. Waiting time in the restaurant was rather long, despite there being very few people dining.

    Spacious room. Nice friendly staff, beautiful foyer and restaurant & easy parking

    Could use some remodeling here and there. Shower was clogged. Whirlpool in room was out of order. Perhaps other rooms are in better condition. Noisy autobahn right outside our window. Should have asked for a room on the other side of the building (patio/garden view instead of highway view).

    Excellent breakfast. Plentiful, tasty and elegant. Great value for the money when it comes to room and hotel in general.

    Nothing. We liked it from the first to the last moment.

    We were only at 3:00 AM there and they maintain their know high quality we already knew from some years ago in Maastricht. It is unbelievable how they can do this with lesser staff than in Bulgaria (where staff costs only a small part like in the Netherlands and Belgium where staff costs a fortune to business owners), and the stay was more than excellent. Beds after several days driving from Bulgaria (over 2400 km!) were perfect to recover, and the breakfast in the morning with so many choises was unbeatable). ++++++ from me or 13/10!

    I would like to thank the entire facilities management for the super housekeeping and plenty of thanks goes to the restaurant staff for their extreme hospitality. I wish them all the best.

    Excellent hotel. Beautifully decorated with over 10 Christmas trees, reindeer etc. Had a jacuzzi and swimming pool. Can you believe they also had an indoor smoking lounge so you don't freeze in the cold outside . Beds were comfy and service was brilliant. Wifi was working as it should . Rooms had a safe .
