    Nothing - it was faultless.

    What an amazing place - truly exceptional. A former female prison transformed into a beautiful luxurious hotel & restaurant. The staff were warm, friendly and very welcoming. The room was stunning. The restaurant is deservedly world class. The chef/owner greeted us with the menu. His wife presided over front of house. They clearly put as much effort into the front of house staff as they do the food.

    The pepper flavored welcome tea was a nice gesture but perhaps the option of plaiin tea for those who can not tolerate the spicy flavor combinations could be considered.

    Personal aervice, unique character, and exceptional dining experience.

    Bed is great (Auping), so is the tub/ shower.

    Coffee machine was broke but that was compensated with two freshly made cappuccino's brought up through roomservice, free of charge. So maybe this has to be on the plus side of the review box. We went to a concert in De Spiegel opposite De Liberije, so location was great but the whole city center is real close by.

    Bed is great (Auping), so is the tub/ shower. There are rope's and slippers, etc. Big B&O tele. Breakfast is fabulous after all, it's Michelin Star restaurant.

    Some of the facilties need some maintenance. During the day it sounded like there lives an eliphant on the attic, just compensate with loud music :p

    The facilties look great. Good space and bed. Temperture system works well.

    No value for money. The rooms are tidy and clean, but for this amount of money I expect a different room; it was a bit outdated and there was no bath. This was disappointing. Also, we were charged for breakfast. This should have been included in the hotel-price. Also considering we had dinner in the hotel restaurants.

    Location and parking is perfect. Staff is friendly, great hospitality. You are being offered a drink while you wait.

    Hotel was formerly a women's prison, which made for a very interesting building/use of space. Staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. It was superbly situated for our purposes being next door to the Theater de Spiegel, a visit to which was our main reason for being in Zwolle. A flying visit but very enjoyable.
