What we like best about staying at Huis Ten Wolde was the friendly family who own and run the place, the delicious meals in the restaurant on the premises and the absolute cleanliness of the room. We would stay again when in town! Lovely view from the room which was in the back of the hotel, top floor. No, not really!
The hotel is designed as modern farm house, which feels great. Lovely library. Located in the countryside, the hotel is quiet & it's fun walking in the area. It would be nice to have a kettle in the room. The restuarant is very pricey, hardly a variety for vegeterians. Since it's remote - there are no real options to dine out.
The Hotel and staff was amazing, the best I have ever experienced.
The room (in the old building) was more than perfect! The breakfast is way too expensive.
Our room was very nice & the food was excellent
The room and especially the beds! The were perfect in one word The service was a disaster
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 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.
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
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.
Very handy for the train station and town centre yet located in a quiet area. I particularly liked the wet room, far more convenient than a cramped shower cubicle. Breakfast was also very good.
Large, well appointed, very friendly and helpful staff. Ideally located near train and town center.
Enormous room with fantastic views The large shrimp I ordered in the restaurant were completely overcooked and tasteless. But the service was excellent
Quiet Equipment under repairment. Should be quoted on booking.com
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.
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.
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)
Great breakfast, nice large rooms, quiet although we were at the rear of the hotel. Helpful staff.. Dinner was abit expensive..
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.
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.
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....
Surroundings, nature The restaurant, only 5 main dishes in a 4star hotel restaurant. It was too easy to choose...
Very friendly staff, nice big pool
The large and well furnished room. Extra facilities such as washing machine and bicycle hire. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was poor. No choice of size and style of hire bicycles one of which needed attention.
Welcoming staff, countyside location, swimming-pool, free coffe and fruit in the ground floor.
The atmosphere is nice. It makes you feel at home. No
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.
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.
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.
Excellent location for town centre A bit basic and dated.
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.
surrounding area is beutiful and convenient for real, good rest after busy week.....
Locaton & facilities, friendly personnel Restaurant quality not in accordance with hotel level, Setting quite nice, kitchen "average"
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.
the location is great, you can enjoy the adventure on the canoe or on the bike
it was peaceful and relaxing, the grounds of hotel were beautiful, accommodation was first class. no
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.
Pleasant service, good food, quiet location far outside of the city Dalfsen (if you go by 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 .
Modern hotel, very clean. Very noisy.
visiting familie in Dedemsvaart en Urk. The location of the hotel was about in the middle of those two places. no
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
Really comfortable beds. Superb restaurant
Friendly staff and nice semi rural location.
convenience of position of hotel mosquitoes!!!!
(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.
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.
(a) Pleasant staff (b) Value Meal (c) Excellent internet connection and it was free
Freindly family & good service Very good food
See top review None
Very warm and friendly welcome from our hostess. The location was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The hotel room was impeccably clean with air conditioning. You can choose when to have your breakfast and the quality of the food was perfect. The hostess also regularly checked whether we were enjoying our stay, which was a very nice touch.
It is one of the most friendly and obliging small hotel we have stayed in, the owners could not have been more helpful and obliging which helped us to make this a holiday to remember and would recommend this to hotel in a beautiful area in Holland.
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.
Excellent service! Very nice and thoughtful staff. Compliments to the team!
Beautiful hotel! Staff extremely helpful and friendly, food fabulous, bed comfy! If ever in the area, absolutely stay here.
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.
Friendly atmosphere, comfortable single room
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 staff were pleasant and helpful without being obtrusive. The room was stylishy furnished - and the breakfasts were excellent.
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
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.
Service excellent! Restaurant and breakfast awful!
the staff is excellent, kind and helpful! decoration of the restaurant no
Really friendly hotel, staff wanting to help. Boat hire gave extra incentive to stay longer. Good quality food
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!!!!
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.
Good service, nice Grandpa
Was not close to any other major cities nor were places open in Giethoorn late into the day.
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.
The staff was friendly and helpful and the facilities were excellent. Location was perfect for exporing the area. Dinning room food was excellent.
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
Checking out by 10:30am was inconvenient. All other hotels allow you to check out by 12am.
good all round experiance
Wifi internet connerction was deplorable
the garden no
All staff were very friendly and accommodating safe did not work
Very convenient to a stay in the town of Steenwijk. Most guests will arrive by car, but it's only a 15 min. walk from the train station and 20 min. walk to/from the town center. Try to set time aside for that most Dutch activity: biking!! Easy and cheap to rent a bike at the train station. There's a forest to the North, heathery landscape to the East and unique Giethoorn with it's wetlands and small lakes to the south. All roads/trails well marked, icecream, snackbar, cute eating places everywhere.
friendly and helpfull staff- large, clean rooms with a desk-good breakfast-good bed an TV-free internet-good value for money. the signal of the free internet is not always stable or strong enough.
Kindness of people and good ratio quality/price The wrong communication between web channels and the hotel.
very comfortable and relaxing no
Great area and good people did not have double beds
The rooms are too small and you can understand what your neighbours are saying to each other.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It is definitely a quiet, relax and romanic place. I totally got a full refresh after the short stay over there. Thumb Up!
we liked the location No tea/coffee making facilites in the room or in the guest area
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.
Excellent for those who want to enjoy the countryside in luxury. The staff is very hospitable and are committed to a pleasant and comfortable stay of their guests. The garden offers a great variety of plants, herbs and fruits as well as a good view on the nearby farmlands. The rooms are spatious and very well furnished.
Nice site, good breakfast
The hotel staffs were so kind and helpful. It was on Sunday and was very difficult to get a taxi or bus to go to Schokland. But they arranged a private tax for me. Finally, I could visit Schokland in addition to Kampen, which are very historical and interesting places. The room was on the river side and I really enjoyed a fantastic view from big windows. The breakfast was well prepared and was tasty. I spent a lovely time with Hotel van Dijk in Kampen
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.
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.
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.
Small size hotel, good service, excelent food, both dining and breakfast, Fantastic large sized beds. nothing worth to mention
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.
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.
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.
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.
Central location Confusion over whether to check-in at Reception or at Bar
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.
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.
