Food, flexibility Bikes were all rented out
great beds, great breakfast, lovely indoor pool
Hospitality drinks at arrival were a nice gesture! Excellent food!
Swimminhgpool, sauna, breakfast, childrens room Parking lot pretty full, so needed to walk a biut more to the car (minor issue)
Good food, nice double bed
breakfastbuffet very well assorted ,walk in the woods
Peacefull, the hotel staff were amazing. The best service i've ever got from hotel staff. The dinner at res' altough it was cheap but the food wasn't so good.
in the middle of the wood. very relaxing. Lazy sunday: check out at 5pm No fridge in the standard room. Night porter a bit slow
More a business hotel
Strange that a nearly empty restaurant was not willing or able to accommodate ten people at one table
Staff were very friendly and very helpfull Bed and pillows were uncomfortable. I stayed for 4 nights and could not sleep at all. the maximum sleep I had was 2-3 hours. Also, rooms are very dark. did not feel comfrotable at all. Also, when I booked in this hotel, I made reservation for 3 nights with a room rate 165 euro, per night. I arrived one night earlier and was able to check in. However, when I got the hotel invoice I had to pay 170 euro per night not the booked rate 165
The room (in the old building) was more than perfect! The breakfast is way too expensive.
Good service, friendly staff. Excellent value for money.
Staff were extremely friendly and attentive and spoke very good English. Room service was virtually nonexistent first two nights (weekend) – bathroom was not cleaned, trash was not taken out, extra pillows remained on chairs.
The Hotel and staff was amazing, the best I have ever experienced.
The Hotel is in the perfect location, near station and center. The staff and service was very good and prompt. The room and bathroom was spacious and very comfortable. Loved staying at this Hotel.
I cannot say I was particulary impressed. 4 coathangers for 2? Rip off breakfast. Hot room. I thought it would be more luxurious, but it wasn't.
The room and especially the beds! The were perfect in one word The service was a disaster
Our room was very nice & the food was excellent
Service was good. Food delicious. Booking.com stated free wlan. Is only available in the restaurant and is not for free. The hotel explained it very politely and gave a voucher for 50 minutes. Is ok but not what was expected....
The 3* star hotel tried to provide 5* service. For example, change fronk-desk check-in with welcome coffee. Room is spacious with good furniture. Food (breakfast and dinner) is normal and overpriced. Curtains in both bedroom and bathroom are full of dust. The room we stayed is a cottage which is isolated in the yard.
Enormous room with fantastic views The large shrimp I ordered in the restaurant were completely overcooked and tasteless. But the service was excellent
Great breakfast, nice large rooms, quiet although we were at the rear of the hotel. Helpful staff.. Dinner was abit expensive..
Quiet Equipment under repairment. Should be quoted on booking.com
Remote location - situated in the polder (an area of reclaimed land from the sea) - therefore nights are very quiet (and dark outside the hotel grounds !) Had to pay for WiFi - these days that should be free, considering the low cost to the hotel. (they have a high speed glass-fibre connection like most hotel establishments and many houses in the cities now)
Room was not airconditioned and the window could not open. We had to open the door leading onto a communal balcony as it was just too warm. Also traffic in the corridors could easily be heard.
Very clean, well located, a good value for money, the restaurant of a very good level. not very nice smell around, not really much to do around.
Comforatble bed. Directions to the hotel given by the receptionist were not clear at all,and this should be improved.
nice hotel. Good breakfast We asked about an extra bed, but it was denied. I cannot see why this was impossible.
the facilities are great, the room was nice and the bathroom is really good, the breackfast is really good and the restaurant for dinner is very good.
I really enjoyed the standing of the hotel (for instance, the fitness room and the sauna). And also the ground floor which is really lovely and nice. We felt almost like home. The blankets were not perfectly clean.
The smoking area is located directly in the area of the reception. Within 5 days the linen weren't changed at all. Cleaning of the room was conducted cursorily.
all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Excellent location. The sheets left white fibers all over my clothes. I noticed that only after I emptied my beg on the bed, so all my clothers left this hotel coverd withe white fibers. That's also probably why i sneezed so much.
Reception and restaurant staff were lovely and helpful. also liked the free wifi and good quality of buffet breakfast
Location, Value for money, Parking next to Hotel, Bikers welcome ( motorcycles ) Very helpful staff. At 2am we had someone enter our room, my wife and I sat up in bed and we could see the light from the doorway coming into our room, my wife said " hello " and the person said oh shit and shut the door, this was not very good as someone else had a key to our room.
that the restaurtant was on hand to have your meals I think it would help if you had fans or air conditioning in the bedrooms, also a wall fan in the bathroom when one is having a shower or bath.
Excellent location for town centre A bit basic and dated.
The hotel had a very homely feeling and is situated in a beautiful environment. Friendly and helpful staff. The food was limited in choice and I would have liked more vegetarian options on the menu.
The area, the location, the restaurant and the food, the service.
Beautiful surrounding countryside. Slight remoteness was welcome as it added to the peace and tranquility of the atmosphere.
It was a nice room with a lovely view of the garden. Thy couldn't arrange for internet service, which was a problem. They thought they had it but it wouldn't work with my laptop - which was never a problem elsewhere.
The room! The breakfast and the people. No
Nice room, little but nice pool, good and kind staff, in the middle of the woods so we saw deer and wild pigs while going there. big and great breakfast. Good value for money! Nothing, a real nice hotel
situation small room
Good value for money 1. No double bed in this price available (only 2 separate beds together 2. Very small bathroom
food was good room and bathroom design (interior architecture and space) are poor
Nice hotel, beautiful surroundings, very friendly personnel. Breakfast was a bit simple but good. Lots of muskitos (also in the room) due to forest surroundings. Bathroom was very small (though nicely styled).
Location !!!! great The small selection on the menu, not an a la carte restaurant
Great location outside of Epe with cordial staff and comfortable accomadations Very small bathroom with no shower wall so floor in bathroom is very wet.
The location of the hotel was wonderful. The service was outstanding and the food great
Hotel lays beautiful in the forest, tea facilities in the room, swimming pool for free, very friendly staff
NIce clean room, friendly staff. There was very cold in the room on arrival, and the heating could not warm the place in 1 night.
the location is great, you can enjoy the adventure on the canoe or on the bike
The setting was charming and the staff was very friendly and accomdating. The rooms did not have fans . During our stay the weather was warm. It would have also been helpful to have a computer available to use .
Quiet surroundings with lovelyl nature, main building with reception, restaurants, lobby and terrace beatifully designed and situated. Very worth its price. .The whole establishmwent seemed a little worn (except the main building). A long way to drag the luggage from the parking place to the proper building (not allowed to take the car inside the hotel grounds for unloading).
The rooms were a bit noisy, we could hear the neighboring guests (with children!) because of poor insulation.
Locaton & facilities, friendly personnel Restaurant quality not in accordance with hotel level, Setting quite nice, kitchen "average"
Modern hotel, very clean. Very noisy.
The setting was excellent, the rooms were clean and tidy and well fitted out. The hotel facilities were lovely, we sat out in the sunshine enjoying a drink by the canal at the back. The breakfast was superb.
Pleasant service, good food, quiet location far outside of the city Dalfsen (if you go by bike)
it was peaceful and relaxing, the grounds of hotel were beautiful, accommodation was first class. no
surrounding area is beutiful and convenient for real, good rest after busy week.....
convenience of position of hotel mosquitoes!!!!
(a) Pleasant staff (b) Value Meal (c) Excellent internet connection and it was free
Dining area relaxing and beautiful views through wrap around picture windows. Service friendly. food excellent. About 1 KM stroll to town. no elevators for persons with disability--not unusual for europe
Freindly family & good service Very good food
(a) Pleasant location (b) pleasant staff (c) near my destination (d) good continental breakfast Staff "forgot" to open radiator thermostatic valves. It was below zero outside and room was very cold. Room did warm up fairly quickly.
Friendly staff and nice semi rural location.
Really comfortable beds. Superb restaurant
Price and free internet. Quiet location and very large room out of center (but you know that when booking!). !!! check-in closes at 11pm.
The staff were friendly and helpful, pleasant rural location but only a short walk or bike ride from town.
visiting familie in Dedemsvaart en Urk. The location of the hotel was about in the middle of those two places. no
Was not close to any other major cities nor were places open in Giethoorn late into the day.
The owners were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and had lots of suggestions for places to visit. The meals were excellent and even a last-minute order for vegetarian food was no problem. Just a lovely place to stay. There was nothing we did not like
Good service, nice Grandpa
the staff is excellent, kind and helpful! decoration of the restaurant no
We were made welcome from the minute we entered the Hotel, everyone went out of their way to accommodate us, we were given information,maps, weather forecasts and anything we asked for. Generally this is a first class hotel with first class treatment. I would not say that I did not like the breakfast but I think their could have been a more varied selection, there was only one juice, two cereals, one yogurt and no toaster for scrambled eggs on toast!!!!
No hay plabras.Fantastico. Highly recommended. Giethorn is after Amsterdam the most touristic village in Netherlands (1 million per year) but is only known in Netherlands -only 20% are foreigners- so we should discover it !!!. The hotel is really great .... you can rent bicycles and electrical boats there. The rooms are very big, all new and nice. 10 over 10. No tengo ninguna.
Really friendly hotel, staff wanting to help. Boat hire gave extra incentive to stay longer. Good quality food
The staff was friendly and helpful and the facilities were excellent. Location was perfect for exporing the area. Dinning room food was excellent.
Manager was very good and the food was excellent
Small and simple hotel with excellent staff -- very friendly, very helpful. Fine hotel for a short stay. The breakfast was inadequate: the coffee we got served was lukewarm and the toast was old. The scrambled egg was great, even though there was very little left when we had breakfast and nothing was resupplied.
The hotel owner was very friendly. We checked in early but still she let us in a very comforting way. The room coupled with breakfast was definately worth the money.
we liked the location No tea/coffee making facilites in the room or in the guest area
It is definitely a quiet, relax and romanic place. I totally got a full refresh after the short stay over there. Thumb Up!
Would have liked to check in earlier than 3 pm, but aside from that it was very nice. Newly remodeled inside , I think, as the rooms were nice, and the bath was great, with a tub and shower. The dining room was beautiful, with fresh flowers, and good food at a reasonable price. The decor, lovely.;the dining staff good. As for location, it is perfect, right on the canal, with boat for hire. or footpath for walking; plenty to see, with the lovely homes on islands, and resturaunts along the canal. an adventure in beauty is what i would call the town of Geethoorn. The hotel is very convienient to the attraction, which is the town. The stairs were difficult to climb with luggage to our rooms.
Hotel very clean, Good breakfast with excellent selection, Hotel is right on the Geithorn canal where you can rent a boat. Rest. is closed for renovation until late summer of 07. Meanwhile breakfast is served in a modular building. This is a very minor point as the breakfast and service are excellant.
Environment is superb.Ladies in the service were helpfull. There were severel thing noticeable: Outer space and walls surrounding the Hotel was being painted thus heavy smell covered the room. No shower curtain was available leading to water splash everywhere. No fridge in the room. A few weeks ago ownership changed and many new initiatives for refurbishment and management were underway, not necessarily to the good of guests, but I believe after a while things will turn to normal. Of course construction work and cleaning work in and around the channel, just next door, exacerbated the situation.
An excellent location close to the city center with shops but also close to the channelsystem with its charming houses. This family run hotel has a staff that really cares for the guests. We forgot some items when we checked out and the manager phoned our next hotel in Amsterdam. We strongly recommend this hotel when you travel to Geithorn. This little town is a fantastic place with all pitoresque channels and houses. Really the Venice of the North. The town without roads.
Great location; friendly staff; clean and tidy; great breakfast; easy access to parking and other facilities. For our liking the mattresses were too soft, but that is a personal preference. The hotel also seemed to be a thoroughfare for tourists with no connection to the hotel.
The rooms are too small and you can understand what your neighbours are saying to each other.
The breakfasts are always fantastic and the staff are always very polite and helpful
Staff attempted to assist us at every opportunity. Restaurant meals were very high standard. Car parking very convenient The rooms feel rather "dated" and electrical wiring systems are old and of concern. WIFI was very expensive.
Nice, clean hotel. Nice restaurant and bar. Some traffic noice.
excellent customer service and ver polite employees. reception, restaurant, bar , etc
The hotel was clean, the staff were helpful and friendly,and the food was of a very high standard the barking dog across the road.
Nice ambiance of restaurant and bar; quality of the kitchen. Possibility to use the hotel bicycles which are very decent to make a decent cycle trip.
Easy to find location, very good and pleasent staff. Well maintained throughout. Breakfat choice and presentation was excellent. Wireless internet did not work and listed price very expensive. Sound insulation between rooms poor [TV from next room could be heard all night].
To hot to sleep, airco would have been welcom.
it was excellent ! no
Breakfast was outstanding The website claims all rooms have a (French) balcony or terrace - they don't, this is very deceptive as 'the French balcony' is just a railing infront of the window.
Friendly atmosphere, comfortable single room
Breakfast very nice and close walk to 4 restaurants Needs more thorough cleaning, paint,yard maintenance, etc. and Immediately across (about 50 feet) from college classrooms and student population. Also, no lift so could be a problem with luggage and walking up steep stairs.
Excellent staff. Very good atmosphere at hotel. 10-15 mins walk from station. I would return for longer stay. Message re early Sunday breakfast did not reach Sunday staff. Request not well received but requested basic breakfast provided. Credit card machine did not work and had to pay cash as I had train to catch.
Service excellent! Restaurant and breakfast awful!
Excellent service! Very nice and thoughtful staff. Compliments to the team!
The staff were pleasant and helpful without being obtrusive. The room was stylishy furnished - and the breakfasts were excellent.
front of hotel covered with scaffolding and screens - not the most welcoming sight on arrival. Work has to be done but there should be some recognition of this in rates charged.
The Comfort of the bed was excellent, also the food is first class with an excellent menu choice I have stayed at this hotel many times and the down-side perhaps is the price, but this is now considered the "norm" in Netherlands
Beautiful hotel! Staff extremely helpful and friendly, food fabulous, bed comfy! If ever in the area, absolutely stay here.
Staff were excellent, probably the best I've expereienced. Without asking they solved many of our problems such as high chairs and shipping some forgotten items to our next hotel. A+++ Be warned there isn't an elevator which can be an issue if you can't do stairs though there are only two stories. They let us park our stroller on the main floor so we wouldn't have to haul it up and down.
Hotel is close to train station and other bars in the town. Limited staff so bar service slow.
It is written on booking.com that internet is free but it's not!
good feeling and service from the staff, nice people and smiling people - room is ok, and breakfast is sufficient internet wifi access announced as free, but is payable - this is legally a breach of contract, in which booking.com is even responsible
Very good bed and long enough for someone of 1m92; Very nice staff; (Very) late arrival was no problem; If you're looking for a nice small hotel in the nature of Overrijsel, then this hotel is a very good choice. The breakfast was very basic; The position of the TV could be better.
Spacious rooms. Free internet access. Good breakfast selection. Friendly staff and warm greeting. Compared to the hotel Prices in nearby Zwolle this was a bargain. Would reccommend to anybody working at Hessenpoort. Only 5 mins drive away. Considering the proximity of the hotel to the local Business District of Hessenpoort I was suprised that the hotel restaurant only had menu's available in Dutch. I would have thought they have a number of English visitors. The waitress tried to help me translate some of the items on the menu but I would have liked to know what the other choices were
This is our second visit to this hotel and wont be the last. Good friendly staff good food and very clean and tidy rooms. Menu could do with a translation but staff are helpful.
Everything are new and clean, spacious room, good B'fast. Helpful staff. Reception at the restaurent bar but no indication signboard, caused confusion and waste time to search for reception desk, especially arrive at night.
Very good price/value ratio. The room was clean, modern, and in a very good condition. Nice bathroom with a shower. Very close to a main road, so some rooms facing the road might be a bit noisy. The room could be a bit cold for some people, the heating wasn't 100% working.
The hotel was very new and clean. Rooms were small but well kept. Breakfast was quite good and the staff was helpful. Overall an enjoyable experience. We traveled with our son who is 6 and thought it was a bit expensive to add another 25 euro per night for an extra bed.
Small size hotel, good service, excelent food, both dining and breakfast, Fantastic large sized beds. nothing worth to mention
Great hotel in countryside. The rooms are new and very clean. Beds are comfy and bathrooms large. In the morning we were greeted by cows just below the window. Highly recommend the restaurant, with good food from the surroundings (asparagus,beef) and all well prepared. Definitely best hotel with booking.com so far.
The friendlyness of the staff was pleasant. The cleanliness of the room and bath room was pleasing. The kitchen seemed to be good. The hotel is located right next to a busy national route. Thus it was not possible to open the bedroom window. The interior design is a matter of taste - a lot of plastic flowers.
Nice and cosy little hotel with a warm welcome. Unfortunately I came a wednesday were apparantly services and restaurant are closed, so not possible to eat there, nor getting an iron as requested. However they did prevent me in the morning about the closed restaurant, allowing me to simply dine on my way to the hotel. A water boiler with coffee/tea and some biscuits in the room would have been nice.
Good location, friendly staff, free wifi and very good food Food was a bit expensive
Lovely surroundings and friendly staff
excellent food i would like the room to have been a little warmer
the room was very clean and the beds where great, the dining places outside as well as inside where very atmospheric beds where separated
Great staff good location good food Rooms are a little small but are comfortable
Basic, clean and cheap with a great breakfast.
Don't use the parking next to hotel on Thursday and Friday evening. Hotel staff did not mention it explicitly....
Central location. Helpful, friendly staff. Good breakfast. Noisy at night when the market was being set up. Key for outside door was difficult to work. No tea/coffee making facilities in room.
Splendidly situated in the centre of town, good parking facility close by, shopping and restaurants and a museum within very easy walking distance. Staff friendly and helpful, good Dutch breakfast. Good internet connection, both WiFi and cable provided. We would have liked the floor of our room to have been vacuum cleaned -- other than that, we found little to complain about.
The location is excellent, we also had a very nice and quiet room considering the location in the middle of the market.
Central location Confusion over whether to check-in at Reception or at Bar
