!! Non-smoking restaurant !! Should add air conditioning for the summer.
Good hotel, staff very helpful with nice bar area. The hotel is too far away from the city centre for a walk with nothing of interest close by.
Size and cleaniless of room Coffee and tea were at extra cost
The room was nice and spacious, featuring modern design. The location is good if you're travelling further on. Breakfast not very rich, but nice quality. The fact that you cannot access the Spa area unless you are completely naked is absolute nonsense and discrimination!
Modern design, very light spacious and airy public areas. Helpful reception staff, restaurant menu and food quality very good. Access road not well signposted and car park and hotel entrance could be easier to find. During my stay, wind conditions meant constant draught and noise under room door.
Comfortable Food good but expensive. Need a car to move around since it´s on a location outside town.
Friendly staff, clean room and bathroom, nice hotel overall. Hotel is close to the highway thus very easy access. No A/C in room, but big room and windows so it was cool enough (although it wasn't a warm night either).
The spa area. The carpet in the room was not cleaned prior or during my stay.
Room , facility is good. Reception people is friendly. Location is not in the center (need a car). Cleaning skill is poor.
Location and value for money
Clean, modern and comfortable. Expected the restaurant to be better. It was ok, but only average.
The hotel is very well organised, friendly staff who know what they are doing. The restaurant serves excellent food.
Everything, comfort, quality, helpful staff tea and coffee facilities and good value.
very large and comfortable room, good breakfast
the large room and bathroom no special shower, there was shower in the bath instead seperated.
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 decor was beautiful and the evening meal in the restaurant was excellent no
for nine nights, the pillow cases & sheets were not changed.
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.
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.
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
close to Antwerpen
The room was very quiet. No sounds from other rooms, highway or whatever.
the sex in the shower didn't clean room
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.
ability to work in room in comfort
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
Sufficient free parking space
The hotel is brand new, so very clean and organised no
Very comfortable rooms, good breakfast Not many tv channels
The room was spacious and very comfortable with a fantastic bathroom The Bar is quiote small and could do with being non-smoking
Clean room, good dinner, good breakfast, friendly welcome.
friendlyness of staff and personnel Additional light in bathroom before mirror
We were pleased with the hotel, but had some problem finding it, since we came throught the own and not via the highway none
the hotel is a bit far from the city center but all rooms are full of light, clean and very comfortable..
Warm welcome and a large comfortable room Cold breakfast, Iron that didn't work strange room numbers (walked past my room)
For the price, the room size was good. Bathroom was very clean and spacious. Breakfast wasn't that good.
Close to center. Good lay out of the room, for 3 beds.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
peaceful,comfortable room, friendly staff,lovely breakfast,good facilities
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.
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.
Excellent service especially at the reception desk. Breakfast quality also excellent.
Very convenient next to the trainstation and also a very nice hotel.
In comparison to other four star hotels, this hotel does not worth it (at least for standard rooms).
Ideallly placed in the centre of Breda for walks into the centre
It was noisy and not well isolated. I could hear the people on the level above me.
Several visits to Breda but the Mercure has al ways been good.
Very friendly staff, good breakfast, close to city center
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.
The staff was very friendly The bed was of very poor quality. The room was way too small for 2 persons
Breakfast was very good: there was a bottle of champagne on display so we asked the waitress to open it -- and she did :-)
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
Most of it
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.
Friendly Staff N/A
As before staff always helpful and pleasant, breakfast very good and great choice, room clean and comfortable
Hotel Ara was very a relaxing, enjoyable overnight stay. Staff were excellant and food terrific albeit very expensive for us Brits on holiday. Have to agree with most reviews...very difficult to find. If the maps on booking.com had motorway exit numbers on them we would of had a better chance.
A very calm hotel, the staff was very nice and helpful, finally the food was the best the chef is the best I have tried across 5 countries!!!!
The room was very spacious (suite) and the view on the river is great. The hotel could use some decoration, it seems a bit 'cold'.
It is very closed from the city, and in the countryside as well. Very relaxing, clean, and convenient. Nothing to complain.
I particularly liked the size and decoration of the room and the hotel in general
Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Qulity of facilities, food and drink. Location was further from train station than indicated on the map.
Pleasant surroundings, very helpful staff. First class stay. Wheelchair ramp from car park could do with relaying, but disabled facilities inside hotel first class.
Well located and well appointed. Restaurant performance was poor. Breakfast was average.
The hotel is clean and the staff very pleasant. n/a
We had the suite: it was huge, plenty of room and aa nice view In most hotels, in the suite, you might expect a mini-bar, and a stereo to play your own music or something like that. Not here: a bed, a bath, a TV, a desk (and an infrared cabin, but who uses that?). Pretty bare for a suite
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 room was excellent and the situation was very good We were disappointed wit the restaurant
The beeches around the hotel NA
Friendly and very helpful staff. Good food and situated in a wonderful, peaceful location but within easy walking distance to most parts of Breda.
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.
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
restaurant very good. room was a little old in design
Good location, friendly staff; good restaurant; very nice, large, quiet room with jacuzzi. Somewhat unattentive staff at breakfast in the morning.
the beautiful bar and restaurant. really nice surroundings to relax. the mosquitos in my room. I was bitten alot and needed to visit a doctor for some medication.
very quick checkin and check out, friendly staff. very nice restaurant, we had an excellent dinner there with very cheap price, also very good snack in the night. easy to go to the town, and the small town is quite nice. nothing, good small hotel and really good food, well prepared salad, kid friendly.
staff is very kind rooms are very poor and not well maintained : my first room had huge graffiti on the walls, it was changed and the 2nd room had no wifi
use of computer for emails, ample car parking, breakfast was ok no tea/coffee facilities in room, needed decorating in bedrooms, no hotel information in room, single beds in double room
Easy to find. Good cycle storage Needs refurb to bedrooms. Public areas are however up to date
It was relatively cheap and still nice. The room was clean, no sign of mold in the bathroom, unlike someone else mentioned it before. It was also quit there, so we could sleep very well. The breakfast was good and when something ran out, it was filled up again immediately.
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.
i feeling the comfortable in the room because good bed and very quiet. so i like your hotel. no
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
There is no a refregerator in the room
Cleanliness and Breakfast
Comfortable beds, friendly staff, free parking, good heating. Need a car to get to town.
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.
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
Quiet location and very friendly staff We had great difficulty in getting a booking for dinner on the first night of our stay, we were not warned that we would need to pre book. As we had travelled quite a distance the last thing we wanted was to go out to search for a restuarant. After a lot of discussion we we told we could eat providing we went in straight away, as the restuarant was far from full we could not understand why there was a problem.
The Hotel offers spacious rooms with good facilities.
Given the choice and the quality (both average to low), the breakfast is too expensive (€14).
Great Hotel with excellent staff, rooms were spacious and clean. Nice to have a terrace with the room. Excellent breakfast with the room. It is not located very close to shopping or a city centre.
The staff was helpful and spoke English. also, we liked the breakfast
Very nice hotel, big rooms, excellent breakfast facility (old monastery), very clean and well maintained. Parking lot was big enough to accommodate all cars, no problems with parking. Hotel is located in great, small community, great nature and walk routes. Hotel restaurant is not that great, it is pricey, and not great food options - i like more vegetables in my plates but there are two close by restaurant/pubs that offer better local food choices.
Friendly staff. Relaxing environment. English speaking TV channels. Coffee availability in room. Having to leave the building in the morning for breakfast. Dinner at the restaurant was not as expected. Not enough water pressure.
Excellent place for a peaceful stay!
staff a bit outdated rooms
the hospitality and helpfulness of the staf no
