Tea/coffee making facilities in room I wanted to make a reverse charge telephone call from my room but hotel receptionist took half an hour to find out how to do it. Even then he could not connect me to the operator. Eventually I had to make the call from a public phone in Reception
Friendly staff, good meal service even later in the evening, nice architecture. Not so far away from the Highway, it's OK for a pit stop as well as city tour. Wireless was NOT for free, and it is not so exciting for a so high level hotel.
A really nice hotel, very friendly staff, good food, an extremely good breakfast buffet, very children friendly, spacy room at a good price The beds could be better
ability to work in room in comfort
The hotel location is close to the highway A16 and is very easy to find. The people at the reception are helpfull and friendly. The price is for what is offered high, but this is the standard for the Netherlands.
the sex in the shower didn't clean room
Sufficient free parking space
close to Antwerpen
The room was very quiet. No sounds from other rooms, highway or whatever.
Close to center. Good lay out of the room, for 3 beds.
Warm welcome at reception
for a modern hotel its just what you would expect. very comfy bed and best hotel breakfast ever! we had a road side room which was very noisy, especially as it was harley day!
Breakfast. Clean and tidy rooms. Quiet City. Coffee shops. Nope
In City Center, clean and quiet. Excellent breakfast. Parking garage was a few hundred meters walk.
Great location.extensive buffet brekfast. nice to have a tea tray in the good size well appointed room. We would definatly use this hotel again. we have always been satified with Golden Tulip inns and hotels.
Cleanliness, situation, breakfast too big pillows
Great location, nice rooms, reasonably priced and very good breakfast to start your day with. The rooms are missing a mini bar which for a business traveler would be nice to have.
Generally I liked the hotel but most of all the warmth of the staff! Since the toilet was in a seperate room, it should have had a hook so you could put a towel for your hands.
Clean, modern and comfortable. Expected the restaurant to be better. It was ok, but only average.
The decor was beautiful and the evening meal in the restaurant was excellent no
the large room and bathroom no special shower, there was shower in the bath instead seperated.
very large and comfortable room, good breakfast
Spaciousness of room Air-conditioned. Good location at main highway. But bathroom is large empty space, could have had separate shower stall, now high-sided bath tub only which is problematic if you are not athletic. Poor ventilation of bathroom. No fridge in room. No ice cube machine. No glasses (flimsy plastic cup only). Advertises to be 4 star hotel but is not. Unattentive and poor service in restaurant and bar. No phone book / yellow pages in room.
the room size is wonderful-not at all typical EU style; plus in room air conditioning controls. Restaurant food is quite nice; very nice breakfast buffet as well. I could hear a rooster in the daytime,but it did not bother me in the night. It is right off the A-16 but I did not hear any traffic noise either.
Everything, comfort, quality, helpful staff tea and coffee facilities and good value.
for nine nights, the pillow cases & sheets were not changed.
The hotel is very well organised, friendly staff who know what they are doing. The restaurant serves excellent food.
Very friendly staff, good breakfast, close to city center
The hotel is located near the city railway station. This is a very convenient location for those who plan move to nearby towns. Also hotel close to the beautiful city park, which is very attractive for hikers. Hotel rooms have modern design, good furniture. Accommodation in Deluxe Double Room is quite expensive. In addition, the cost does not include breakfast.
It was noisy and not well isolated. I could hear the people on the level above me.
Very convenient next to the trainstation and also a very nice hotel.
Excellent service especially at the reception desk. Breakfast quality also excellent.
peaceful,comfortable room, friendly staff,lovely breakfast,good facilities
In comparison to other four star hotels, this hotel does not worth it (at least for standard rooms).
Several visits to Breda but the Mercure has al ways been good.
Ideallly placed in the centre of Breda for walks into the centre
The staff was very friendly. We had a warm welkcome and felt 'home' immediately. We had a wonderfull dinner; the breakfast was very nice as well. The room was amazing! There was nothing I did not like during my stay. Only thing I was confused about, was the distance to the city centre. On the booking.com website it says that it's walking distance, but when we looked at the map, it did not seem like that.
Very convenient location by railway station. Comfortable room. Quiet. Computer with internet connection for guests not working. 15 Euro for breakfast rather high so I walked to the station and bought a croissant.
I found the hotel to be clean and reasonable value for the money. I would consider staying there again in the future
Pool and restaurant Beds, and room cleaning service
Friendly helpful staff, very clean rooms,breakfast included in room price was very substantial, lots of choice, nice restaurant and bar area and pool and sauna great. Would definitely stay again.
As before staff always helpful and pleasant, breakfast very good and great choice, room clean and comfortable
Breakfast was very good: there was a bottle of champagne on display so we asked the waitress to open it -- and she did :-)
The swimming pool. The heaters were not working. The rooms were cold. No hairdryer.No minibar. The price was 98 euro per room were too much for this.
Breakfast generous and varied, staff did their best (see below) Noisiest & worst night ever, also for the staff , who responded promptly, re. Next room problem, continued to monitor/ intervene - well done the manager. Large group of children rampaging into the small hours, unsupervised by parents drinking in the bar, were his nightmare too - not hotel's fault but hopefully you will complain to their school/group/parents.
Most of it
Friendly Staff N/A
The staff was very friendly The bed was of very poor quality. The room was way too small for 2 persons
We felt very welcomed by your friendly staff from the minute we arrived. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast included in the room rate. The outside terrace was very relaxing to sit and enjoy a meal and glass of wine in the country atmosphere. We felt that the bathroom was poorly lit over the mirror and that could be improved for better visiblily.
The restaurant offers good food. The hotel did not have a free WIFI access. For the price (100 euro/night) you should have free access to the Internet. This was very disappointing.
restaurant very good. room was a little old in design
Friendly and very helpful staff. Good food and situated in a wonderful, peaceful location but within easy walking distance to most parts of Breda.
Good location, friendly staff; good restaurant; very nice, large, quiet room with jacuzzi. Somewhat unattentive staff at breakfast in the morning.
The classic style and beautiful location at the edge of a wonderful forest; the staff is a team of wonderful young and energetic people, friendly and accomodative. The beakfast and restaurant and its service was outstanding! On Saturday 9/25 a noisy party was held in one of the ball rooms until a very late hour; the guests were adviced in advance of this party, but the hotel should have kept the rooms directy above the ball room vacant. This was not done and was in fact a grave error! It is bad business practice not to give up on the revenue of a few rooms above the ball room and to damage the reputation of a classic quiet and respectable hotel. This is not a complaint but a sound business management advice to a potentially lovely hotel!
Close to Efteling, lovely comfortable room & friendly bar/restaurant
The room was excellent and the situation was very good We were disappointed wit the restaurant
The beeches around the hotel NA
Comfortable beds, friendly staff, free parking, good heating. Need a car to get to town.
wifi internet access didn't work on my computer and nobody could fix the problem; wasting my time to look for substitute service in the area; KPN is not a good service provider, try T-Mobile or Swisscom, they do a good job for correct prices
Clean, Big room. I ordered 2 months in advance. Why did they give me a room on the first floor with a view to the parking area, where the parking area also has view to my room...?
Everything was quite good. However the price of the breakfst I found too expensive. € 11,00 !! That is really not attractiv
The atmosphere,and the late opening hour of the bar.
in relation to French Campanile hotels the food was expensive and of a mediocre standard. Hotel only chosen because of its location as a convenient stop-over.
Cleanliness and Breakfast
The hotel is large and modern with a capacious restaurant. The staff are friendly and helpful. Evening meals are good value and the draught beer is excellent. The rooms are large and comfortable. There is a free car park with night time security. The location is easily accessible from motorways but quiet. There could have been a bit more choice of cereal at breakfast. I did not find any honey on the breakfast bar.
There is no a refregerator in the room
i feeling the comfortable in the room because good bed and very quiet. so i like your hotel. no
wireless internet acces I came in from Atlanta USA that morning, arived at the hotel at 11:00. There was no possibility to get a room for freshing up for my meeting in Antwerpen. All rooms had to be cleaned, not much understanding
Location Miscommunication between the employees regarding the payment of the rooms.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Being a light sleeper, having a room facing the commuter train station interrupted my sleep.
Hotel is situated very close to my Office no
It was nice and homely. None
close to moterway, good value for money they ask if you want smoking room.I book luxary room and smoking rooms do not exist , Only in standard rooms. they should make that clear
Enough parking places just in front of the hotel door. Secure entrance to the floor with keycard. 10-minute drive to city centre (otherwise 45 minutes on foot as told by the receptionist). The internet connection was ok (you just need to ask the receptionist for the password). We got a standard room (the hotel has two sides, and we were at the side where there are 2 storeys), facing to office towers (it was ok not noisy). We had two single beds because the receptionist told us they didn't have double beds. It was ok we just needed to put the two beds together ourselves. However, the beds and the pillows were too soft and we had backache the next morning. Luckily we just stayed there for one night. Overall, if we could choose again, we would have paid a bit more to stay at a Campanile than Bastion Breda.
Nice Hotel, quite, clean and cheap. Exellent wi-fi connection, easy parking.
location is not good for those who do not drive
The room is very clean, every day is clean towel.
The cheapest hotel around. You have free parking place and free internet. In constrast to comments that rooms are cold and there is no towels, one can adjust the heater temperature, towers and soap were present, the room was cleaned on the second day. For the price you get a very basic room (cheap interior). The breakfast is quite basic (toasts, butter, 1 sort of sausage and 1 cheese, coffee/tea, milk/cereals, orange and apple juice).
nothing. cold hotel, very industrial no staff at night , very cold and unpleasent
Bed was very comfortable. There was no provision of either soap, toothbrush or toothpaste. Also no drinking water was available either in the room or foyer.
very easy access to breda, nice comfotable room for price
No problems and easy to use Cost of Wi Fi - Should be free !!
helpful staff, clean rooms
Clean, clean towels every day, hot water and good shower, good parking, helpful staff when available. Comfortable bed. English TV No clothes hangers. Noisy guests kept us awake into early hours on Saturday night. Blood on stairs overnight and all day Friday. Poor choices for breakfast. Door card kept needing re-programming. No tea/coffee making facilities. Pillows too small. A liitle too basic - like a prison cell.
Sheets needed repairing...
New facility with very helpful staff. Comfortable rooms & excellent Buffet breakfast. Quiet rooms, but only with windows closed. Would benefit from air-conditioning. Nothing detrimental.
Functional and convenient hotel for the industrial zone close by.
Staff friendly and helpful Nice breakfast. Nice and clean room. Easy to park. Free wi fi
We stayed on the very first night that it opened for business. Obviously that it not a normal state of affairs, so all comments must be taken in that light. The main plus, which one hopes will remain, was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. It was all very clean and comfortable though the rooms were just a bit on the small side.The breakfast was a typical continental buffet. No surprises. Only shortcoming, probably due to the newness was the lack of segregated parking. Cars were left rather exposed overnight in the main car park. It looked as though some dedicated spaces were under construction next to the hotel.
good localization; free parking the staff was not too aware of the hotel facilities (did not know that they have a WiFi access); I needed to change the room because they gave me one which has not been cleaned after the last guests; very poor breakfast, not worth the 10€;
New Hotel, New Staff, teathing problems, ok hotel if you are travelling, not sure it is somewhere i would stay for other reasons, did the job for an overnight stopover.
Clean room, all the usual facilities -- no complaints
close to town center,one minute away.plenty of parking just at the back of the hotel,1 euro 20 cents per day
no private parking
I liked that it was centrally located close to the center of town. I like that the staff was very friendly, spoke very good english, and called to have bikes brought to the hotel for us. The smoking rooms were across the hall rather than being on a different floor.
The hotel is directly related to a house of retired people! This atmosphere can felt!
Free wireless internet connection. Good restaurant. Exterior of the hotel looks actually better than seen on photos.
Good location and nice staff Expensive breakfast
well situated no
The silence and quietness. The 10 Euros of fees for a little dog. (announced only as a possibility in your site)
the quality of the rooms the absence of wireless internet in the rooms
friendly staff. good restaurant. the rooms are clean but not four star standard and the bed was worn. its ok for one night.
Really convenient for motorway on long journey. We arrived late and still got a good meal with excellent pudding. Our travelling companion as an elderly Englishman and he found it too "continental European." Some corn flakes and tea in a pot for those like him would be a good thing.
Excellent service from reception to breakfast service
Very nice welcome, and very good access to motorways etc. The room was basic but functional - excellent shower The breakfast was poor, especially considering the price charged - I would expect much more choice
Staff are helpful Mattress is neither soft nor firm.
Poor restaurant menu and slow service. Overpriced food and room.
Convenience location near motorway system. Very friendly staff. I definatly will consider using it again next time if price is similar to what I paid last time. Room was nice comfirtable and clean. Only thing I would say is that the shower cubical could do with a proper clean as there was mould on all seals (not bad enough to not have showers).
the poeple r so nice no everything was perfect
Full of character, comfortable and friendly - very nice bathroom
The room and breakfast room recreate the lovely atmosphere of the past with candles, mirrors, flowers, and family portraits on the walls.
The hostess was very kind and helpful, she gave us useful information about the city and surrondings. Superb breakfast. The atmosphere, silence and tranquility are remarkable. The room had multiple and nice details. We highly recommend it if you are looking for a romantic holiday. Nope.
great location, half way from train station to the city center; good breakfast; kindness of the owners
very pleasant people are working there!!! you feel yourselves there as at home. very comfortable rooms with unique design!!!! I would like to thank the owner family for such hotel!!! nothing!!!
very good eye for detail, nice management, the personal touch, great bathroom and very large rooms, superb breakfast no parking at front, though fairly nearby. Check in could only be done after 3pm, I arrived in front of the door with 3 suitcases at 2pm and had to carry them all back to my car, quite far away until the door opened
Amazing room (I have got the romantic suite). Sauna in the bathroom.Large room. TV with dvd player. Stereo. Very nice and warm welcome of the family
The b&b is well located just a 5 minute walk to Breda's main square. The beds are very comfortable. Good breakfasts, and hostess is helpful as long as you arrive on time and you are at breakfast on time. (see below!) My wife and I traveled from Rome. We were later than expected because of traffic from Amsterdam. Out of courtesy I called ahead to let them know - and was told that I had to be in by 8pm. Period. They had other engagements, and if we weren't in by 8pm, then tough luck. I have never struck this attitude in 30 years of travel. The other thing you should know is that it has very steep stairs, and if you have heavy bags, then it's hard work. Also, you cannot park outside, you have to find a park on a side street. On check-out, the hostess did not offer me the bill to check before she processed my credit card - and I had to ask for an itemized receipt. Based on all this, I would not stay there again.
very clean hospitable and excellent breakfast, owner very helpful and friendly
The hotel is beautifully furbished and has lovely rooms. The atmosfere is calming and relaxing in a busy city, and it's owners are very nice and helpful.
The B&B owner and family, who live in a part of the building, have remodelled beautifully a building dating to the 1840s. The rooms are basically new apartments, and much nicer and roomier than local hotel rooms. They prepare a hearty Dutch breakfast every morning at the convenience of the guests. Perhaps equally important, Mr. Van der Schenk takes great efforts to ensure the guests' stay is fun and fulfilling. In my case, he looked up the bus schedule to ensure I could arrive on time at my academic conference in the neighboring town. With his previous background in the hospitality industry, Mr. Van der Schenk understands how to make guests feel at home.
