    The owner of the hotel is a greedy and disrespectful human being that made us pay 80 euros extra because we left the room at 12 and the check out was supposed to be at 11 which was not communicated upon arrival. I would therefore not recommend this place as the wonders of the monastery are ruined by the unwelcoming management and the absence of a good customer service.

    The monastery itself and its suroundings are wonderful with nice monestary gardens. The rooms are not extremely spacious but well utilised and very clean. Most of the monastery's features are original ones such as the doors which gives it an authentic feel.

    On this visit the bed was very soft and felt quite worn.

    Staff are always courteous and helpful. Free bikes are a good way to relax and see the surrounding area especially when you've spent all day in work. Only a five minute walk from the railway station and five minutes walk in the other direction into the centre of the town.

    Someone put the music very loud in the bar several hours in the afternoon so I couldn't read or sleep, it was like I were in a rock festival. You could also hear the bar music in the evening till closing time, but this all only happened the second day during our stay. The first day was very quiet and nice.

    Wonderful old building, very clean, good restaurant in the evening.

    I got to Boxmeer railway station after an overnight coach and ferry journey from London to Eindhoven follwoed by a 45 minute rail trip walked the 400mtrs to the hotel arriving at 08.00 wondering if I could leave luggage before going to meet the Burgemeester - I was aguest at the annual Liberation Day events. Not only did I get to leave the bags, but was welcomed with my room keys even though check-in was after 14.00hrs. I had a shower, changed and breakfasted and then went off relaxed, kitted out a -fresh and ready for the day. What more can you stay about such a great place? In the evening we brought our Dutch hosts back to the hotel and they were welcomed with open arms by the ever cheerful staff.
