    No big issues, but generally the restaurant and room service appear to lack capacity. Result is delays, having to eat breakfast far from the breakfast room.

    Generally a quality hotel.

    The hotel is quite old but well maintained and clean. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful nice staff. What makes this hotel exceptional is its surrounding - the forest area around the hotel gives lots of possibilities for walking, jogging, cycling, horse riding...

    My 2 year old child got sick from the omelet at breakfast. Also there were a lot of mosquitoes which made eating dinner on the terrace outside very uncomfortable but that is not the hotel's fault. The pillows on which you sleep were a bit uncomfortable and hard for my taste.

    The room and facilities were nice, especially the pool area. Also the parking was convenient and the green area around the hotel very very nice.

    There are no restaurants close by, so if you do not want to have dinner at the hotel, you need to go at least to Heerenveen in order to find a restaurant. You need to have the car in order to reach the property.

    The hotel is located in a very quite area, close by the forest. Very nice swimming pool and cosy spa with sauna. The hotel has two different restaurants, so very convenient for the evening. Easy reachable by car from the motorway.

    I came after a long flight from Asia and wanted to sleep in the morning. At 08:15 there was a lot of noise in the alley outside the room. After 10 minutes I open the door to ask people quite and it turned out that it was a group of hotel cleaners who very standing having a break. At about 09:00 renovation work started in the room above me with big noise. I called the reception and they promised to stop which it did for about 20 minutes. I then started again and again I called the reception who told there is no noise as they have been there to stop the workers. i asked her if she hear the noise on the telephone and she actually agreed. Noise stopped again but only after 20 minutes again it started. I decided to stand-up and leave. When I came to reception I was told that the noise was not by purpose but renovation were necessary and the workers also had a time schedule to follow. I told your reception lady that then you should not rent out rooms when renovation is ongoing. I was offered a discount but really this does not help to get one back to sleep. I asked to talk to the manager who came after some delay and basically same story and when I saw I realized that he was also part of the group being noise outside the room in morning.....

    Don't go! Expensive restaurant, rude staff including management and renovation ongoing without considering the comfort of guests!

    • Leisure trip

    - We stayed in a room on the ground floor, right next to the hotel's restaurant. We could hear loud chatter in our room until late at night. - Other annoyances in the room included water in the shower and taps going from mildly hot to boiling and back again repeatedly, lack of airflow and inaccessible(?) AC switch. - One thing that left us with a bitter taste was that upon checking in, we asked nicely to receive a baby cot if possible. The receptionist said she'll look if there's anything available, and eventually she brought one to our room, not saying a word about involved costs at any point. Upon checking out, we found out that she charged us for it! We told the receptionist at check out that they can't just charge us for things without telling us the price first, or indicating there's any cost at all, to which she replied "you should ask for the price of anything, it's not her duty to tell you". We told her we're not going to pay for it, and she just dropped the charge instantly. Looks like it's their way to make easy money off of people. Very rude, and we'll be sure to stay away from a hotel with such policy.

    + The room was spacious and comfortable, and very well decorated. + Breakfast was good, definitely for its price. + The staff at breakfast.
