    Exceptional service and food. The Michelin star is well deserved. The kitchen under the passionate leadership of the owner (Eric) was able to create an unmatched 4-course dinner. It was a unique culinary experience. The hotel was also unique with our room being at a crossing of the hotel garden and a beautiful forest.

    people were extremely friendly and the place was just lovely, both the building from inside and outside as the area where it is placed

    - didnt like the food too much, although restaurant seems to be very good - hotel is secluded/next to a forest, it is not so suitable for business trips, more for vacations

    - Nice building and restaurant - rooms with own terrace - next to a park

    The rooms can be a little cold in wintertime. But this can be an advantage in the sometimes hot summer days.

    The Swarte Ruijter is situated on the Holterberg in the middle of the trees. The hotel is very close to the famous Pieterpad from where you can make wonderful walks.

    Breakfast at €14.00 is a bit on the expensive side.

    The rooms are in Chalets on site but extremely well furnished and comfortable. The restaurant is very expensive but they have a Michelin star and the food is exquisite.

    The restaurant of the hotel is exceptional. Dinner was luxurious and delightful. The rooms are separate from the hotel and very comfortable and quiet. The area is great for walking and cycling. This time I had a room with a walk-in shower, not a bath.

    To take a shower I had to stand in the bath tub. Quite a large step to get into it. I do not know whether other rooms have a separate shower.

    The room was seperate from the main building, giving you your own tiny 'cottage'. The area is lovely and quiet. Enough parking space and about 15 min. walk to the railway station, should you want to come by public transport. Breakfast was wonderful and (too) abundant. Staff is very nice and friendly.

    The food was out of this world. We hadn't realised they had just been awarded their first Michelin star. Such a peaceful and relaxing location

    It would be nice to have some easy chairs in the bar, and the desk/cupboard combination in the bedroom takes up a lot 8 floorspace.

    The dinners were very very good. The location is excellent. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly.

    The meals are fancy, but very small and very expensive. There was no minibar in the room. You're better off stocking up on food and drink before going there.

    The surroundings are very nice. There is heaps of beautiful nature. Perfect for relaxing. The room was spacious. It was quiet.

    The bed could have been better. The room is a bit on the dark side.

    Everything, the dinner was excellent and so was the breakfast.
