Hotel has changed management. No problem. However, it would have been better if regular customers were informed (this website?). No bathrobe etc., Everything a little less luxurious. Free Internet was gone. No sorry from personnel.
everything The extractor fan (afzuigsystem?) in the room does not switch off so it was very difficult to sleep. There is also a light switch attached to the bed which has an internal glow light (I guess so that you can see it in the dark). This also stays on all night making it even more difficult to sleep. They are little things but customers having very little sleep is not good for the hotels reputation.
Restaurant food is excellent.
Polite staff, espresso machine in each room, good bathrooms and pleasant grounds. Good for a short break. No option of a larger room or mini suite: the workspace/desk was too small for a longer stay and there was no room wifi. The gym equipment was limited, especially for weight training, and the menu was similarly limited. Not good for a longer stay or business use - but this is not its intended target market.
The pool and the surroundings were really great. I didn't stay long enough to enjoy the rest of the facilities, including the restaurant.
Top quality, helpful staff in beautiful setting
Appointments were excellent Staff needs training and management is terrible
We had a lovely stay and enjoyed it very much. The Staff was very freindly and proffesionel.
The large rooms in a rural setting was a treat. The food was excellent and the pool and sauna exceptional
Large, very good beds. Clean. Quiet rural area. No attention was given to defects in the room that we had submitted.
Service of staff
More luxury than I expected for the price. Quiet yet conveniently located.
Quiet room. Large room. Modern and well kept
The location and the staff.
This hotel is not too far from the centre of the City and has a good view Nothing
We were very pleasantly surprised when arriving at this hotel! I booked it mainly for the location as we were travelling to the Moto GP in Assen and there wasn't much choice left. But this hotel is great - the rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated; the food is delicious and good value for money (pricey but you get alot); the surroundings are beautiful and there is plenty of room to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine with a drink. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much and will use this hotel if visiting again. The location of the hotel is the only slight disadvantage as it is a bus journey from the train station and it is in the middle of the countryside, although public transport is so efficient that it was not a problem. Also one minor point - check your invoice when checking out as we were mistakenly charged for breakfast that we did not have but this was quickly amended without dispute.
Good room with excellent bathroom. Quiet and nice rural setting. Good restaurant.
Our room was quiet, despite the hotel being on a busy road. The staff were helpful. The restaurant (lunch) was very good, with efficient service.
Reception staff helpful providing accurate public transport details. Fry your own breakfast. Not ideal for solo traveller using public transport late at night. 1 bus an hour and would not stop at hotel. Had to walk half km back up road. Angle of windows in luxury block amplifies noise of rain.
Excellent menu and standard of food was verygood No tea orcofein room
A very stylish and comfortable hotel set in open countryside. N/A
Beautiful room, friendly staff. Room not cleaned properly. Breakfast only at 8.30 and selection very poor. No hot breakfast. Hotel in a v small town
The bathroom bedding quilt had stains on it
The hotel was lovely, very relaxing, lovely staff and a very peaceful setting. Would really like to go back sometime. No
A new hotel with a bit of style and class. Excellently appointed rooms, private balcony, large jacuzzi, good service and friendly staff.
Well equiped modern hotel with touch of farm house (but completely rebuilt). Friendly staff. Good food. Romantic place for 2. Highly recommended.
cost suddenly increased fm last visit : to-day use of pool and sauna charged extra.
The staff was not helpfull. They were even rude at times. Specifically, we needed information about exchange rates and taxis and they did not assit us or help us find information
I stayed here for 1 night because it was very close to my chosen location. overall it was ok, check in and out fast, the breakfast buffet was very good.
Good restaurant - The bad (not included into the room fees)
The hotel is very dated and needs an upgrade of all areas.
I did not like the atmosphere. I felt like I was staying in an old people's home because there were rollaters everywhere and old people in bathrobes. The thermal pool could have been so much nicer but everyone looked miserable and the 1 minute buzzer was like some kind of communist controller! I did not like the steam room being naked. I go in a lot of steam room but I don't need to be naked for them. Although this was actually the nicest area, the atmosphere was once again lifeless. The indoor pool in the sauna area was lovely but again, does one have to be naked to enjoy it? It's right in the centre of things so it was awkward for me to swim there.The food in the restaurant was nice but the service slow. Choice limited for veggies.
Pleasant, friendly staff. Very clean rooms and facilities. Excellent breakfast. Easy parking. Easy to reach. Quiet. Excellent service offers. The fact that the swimming pool did not allow entry while wearing a bathing suit. For visitors from the U.S., for example, this would preclude use of this particular pool in many cases. However, the request to take off the bathing suit was made very politely.
Nice and friendly staff. Nice restaurant. Screaming guests in the middle of the night. Small tv at large distance of the bed.
My stay at the hotel was very short (one night), but the staf I talked to was very nice and they gave us hot water for tea to our travel home for free.
Nice place to stay. We will visit them next year during Superbikes Weekend in Assen!!! None
Excellent service and hospitality from manager Mrs. Renate Vink and her staff. Been a regular at Hotel Buxus for the last 6 years or so thanks to the annual Superbike and Supersport races in nearby Assen. Will be back again next year so Mrs. Renate Vink has already marked me down in her calendar.
Meals were realy great
The restaurant was very good and popular. The restaurant was non-smoking - this meant that the smokers stood outside to smoke. The problem was this is right outside the door to room 1 which was the room that I was in.
The quietness and relax surrounding
the staff was very helpful, open doors, the ability to find the hotel in the area, free parking. the bolling play paths where heared in rooms
convient location on German Holland border. Good catering facilities, both english speaking members of staff. The bowling alley lanes could have been waxed more as it was very loud in the room also there could have been more choice of balls. Breakfast was very expensive for not a lot on offer. A few rolls and a small selection of meats. TV in bed room could have been bigger.
friendly staff,greatlocation ,comfortable rooms .For a family get together we found it perfect .The breakfasts were good also. The showers were too cool .Also the grounds outside needed some attention ,there were a lot of weeds and when the grass was cut ,it was left on the pathway and we had it on our shoes and therefore it went into our rooms .
Very attentive and helpful manager and staff. Excellent food and a choice of eating outdoors. lovely "fin de siècle" dining-room. Temporarily a little difficult to access, because of the road improvement.
A hotel with character and charming staff. We would be very happy to stay there again. Excellent food.
The staff were very helpful. Whole atmosphere was relaxed. Hotel in a very quiet area. The buffet breakfast seems expensive.
Nice country atmosphere. Nice dining area. Easy access from the highway A7. Would be a great place for children - along with bowling alley, they also have an 'activity' area.
Everything was fine, would stay there again
Avoid to stay in this hotel on Saturday night when big reception occurs and loud music till midnight.
Very good price. Friendly and flexible staff. Quiet during the night. I could not use the shower in my room since the water didn't flow as it should through the hole in the floor. I had to shower sitting down in the bathtub.
Location Unhelpfull management/Staff. Noisy from 6am. Closing the bar and grill early 3 out of 4 nights. We just got given the keys to the rooms and never got told any times for breakfast,lunch or even dinner times we had to ask for all. Hardly ever spoken to other than good morning. We all felt like we were an inconvieniance to the hotel and at an average of 50 euros per eveng for a basic room and breakfast you would expect a little courtesey and a functioning bar and grill.
A small family run hotel, the staff were very friendly and accomodating.
good location.sat nav went straight to it.good food,drink and room
Comfortable and reasonably well equipped room. A real "small village" hotel. Good breakfast and also lunch could be made. Very basic, no minibar. A used towel and soap in bathroom.
The lunchpackets and dinners were excellant. The members of the hotel staff try to make your stay in the hotel and in the surroundings as pleasant and comfort as possible. This very good behaviour of the staff and the excellent value for money make that the customer comes back! No.
Lovely rural village location. Good food both at dinner and breakfast.Pleasant, helpful proprieter and staff. Would not suit people wanting night life (not a problem for us - we like a quiet time)
The staff were really helpful, and did everything to make our stay enjoyable
very helpfull and friendly hotel
Restaurant has a nice ambience and the food was excellent. Staff were very helpul and freindly. Bedrooms are a little basic and noisy from the road noise outside.
The breakfast was excellent, the staff very hospitable. The curtains were so thin, they did not make the bedroom dark at all.
Cosy atmosphere Noise between the rooms
Friendly new management made us feel very welcome. Meals were generally excellent. Rooms were clean and warm. Some meal choices would have been good. Not everyone likes soft, runny eggs for breakfast.
The excellent and friendly service in a very dutch small village close to german border. If you are looking for an international type of hotel then this may not be ideal.
The hotel was in a conveniant location, easy to find and central to the city with sufficient parking. I did not like the club downstaires it would have been better to use the hotel bar.
(a) location (b) friendly staff (a) advertised internet connection essentially non-existent. (b) fairly large carpark full due to Rotary Club meeting (c) some electrical points not functioning
location disco in building with noise all night. never again.
Some staff were very helpful and friendly
Veru peaceful, no basement nightclub disco on a saturday night as other post mention. Bar closed at midnight!!
The hotel is very comfortable, clean, and the amenities go well beyond a typical international hotel (television, refrigerator, body soap/shampoo, wonderful restaurant adjoining, fantastic breakfast buffet). The staff is wonderful, and I enjoyed my stay very much.
The staff were friendly and accomodating for needs and wishes.
Just average Bathroom poor, no wifi in the room though mentioned
The hotel is excellented renovated,and very nice,although a bit far from a city Prices in the restaurant is too high,according to what they offer
We felt extremely welcomed when we arrived after our long journey. They offer a very personal, friendly service. The food was excellent. The general atmosphere was very relaxed and the hotel is situated in an idyllic region.
We loved our four poster bedroom with spa bath. We also enjoyed the delicious food served at breakfast and dinner. The staff were very happy and obliging. I would stay there again and would recommend to anyone. The location and cleanliness was very good. I did not like paying for everything (e.g. food and drinks bill) at the end of the stay along with the accommodation bill - I like to pay as and when I have a drink or food, so I can tip at the same time accordingly. Otherwise, no complaints, the stay was memorable and enjoyable.
lovely converted barn in pretty village with spacious room and good breakfast I believe the enjoyment of our stay would have been much enhanced with the provision of air-conditioning in the bedroom.
The location of the facility right in the village was just perfect and added to our enjoyment of our stay. The bed was too short and too narrow for two normal people. The bedding was very poor. There was no mattress cover just a very thin worn bed sheet. Not sanitary as it should be.
Everything was perfect, very nice and romantic place for relaxing and spending time faraway from the real city life
Nice small hotel, friendly people. Just 1 thing missing: hairdryer.
It's cozy, friendly atmosphere and staff. Breakfast is excellent. The staff is attentive and fast, even late in the evening. The beds are just a little bit too short for me: I'm 1m96 (almost 6'6"). The city of Exloo should be very much ashamed of themselves for letting the works on the roads be delayed like this. The hotel is difficult to be reached and the streets are a mess and should be fixed sooner than later. Fortunaltely, the hotel staff handles all related problems with care.
