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.
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
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!
Comfortable Food good but expensive. Need a car to move around since it´s on a location outside town.
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.
!! Non-smoking restaurant !! Should add air conditioning for the summer.
Size and cleaniless of room Coffee and tea were at extra cost
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.
close to Antwerpen
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
The room was very quiet. No sounds from other rooms, highway or whatever.
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
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
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.
i do not like the breakfast the beacon and sausages are of poor quality its so boaring and needs a change
Great restaurant. Very nice breakfast. Plenty of free parking space. Comfortable room. No mini bar. Bed covers too small.
Size of room, service, good shower
I really enjoy the employees. The Hotel is small enough that they remember you and always are pleasant and helpful. There is nothting that I do not like about the hotel. Sometimes I wish that there was a coffee shop so you could have a small quick meal instead of the restaurant dining room. Although the food is excellnet in the dining room, it takes a long time to dine. There is one small thing I owuld like and that is washcloths. It's a personal thing.
friendliness of staff, complimentary use of internet (wireless) I would like to propose to add a small bar (mini refrigerator) for drinks and snacks Most hotels have this in each guest room. Also, for business guests, an exercise room would be an added feature
It was near the company I was visiting.
The restaurant food is fantastic! Bring your own alarm clock. Wake up call is prompt, but if you prefer to use your own, there is not a clock / alarm in the room.
Close to center. Good lay out of the room, for 3 beds.
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
Warm welcome at reception
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.
In City Center, clean and quiet. Excellent breakfast. Parking garage was a few hundred meters walk.
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.
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.
Good sized comfortable room; the restaurant and bar provided a nice atmosphere to relax in and we had an excellent meal which was not too expensive. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Resonably sized room, good bathroom. Traffic noise. High room temperature, despite moderate/cool outside temperature.
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.
The decor was beautiful and the evening meal in the restaurant was excellent no
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.
very large and comfortable room, good breakfast
The hotel is very well organised, friendly staff who know what they are doing. The restaurant serves excellent food.
Clean, modern and comfortable. Expected the restaurant to be better. It was ok, but only average.
the large room and bathroom no special shower, there was shower in the bath instead seperated.
Everything, comfort, quality, helpful staff tea and coffee facilities and good value.
for nine nights, the pillow cases & sheets were not changed.
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.
It was noisy and not well isolated. I could hear the people on the level above me.
Very friendly staff, good breakfast, close to city center
In comparison to other four star hotels, this hotel does not worth it (at least for standard rooms).
Very convenient next to the trainstation and also a very nice hotel.
peaceful,comfortable room, friendly staff,lovely breakfast,good facilities
Excellent service especially at the reception desk. Breakfast quality also excellent.
Several visits to Breda but the Mercure has al ways been good.
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.
Ideallly placed in the centre of Breda for walks into the centre
Breakfast was very good: there was a bottle of champagne on display so we asked the waitress to open it -- and she did :-)
The staff was very friendly The bed was of very poor quality. The room was way too small for 2 persons
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.
As before staff always helpful and pleasant, breakfast very good and great choice, room clean and comfortable
I found the hotel to be clean and reasonable value for the money. I would consider staying there again in the future
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.
Most of it
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.
Friendly Staff N/A
It is very closed from the city, and in the countryside as well. Very relaxing, clean, and convenient. Nothing to complain.
The hotel is clean and the staff very pleasant. n/a
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'.
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!!!!
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
Pleasant surroundings, very helpful staff. First class stay. Wheelchair ramp from car park could do with relaying, but disabled facilities inside hotel first class.
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.
I particularly liked the size and decoration of the room and the hotel in general
Well located and well appointed. Restaurant performance was poor. Breakfast was average.
Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Qulity of facilities, food and drink. Location was further from train station than indicated on the map.
The beeches around the hotel NA
Good location, friendly staff; good restaurant; very nice, large, quiet room with jacuzzi. Somewhat unattentive staff at breakfast in the morning.
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
The room was excellent and the situation was very good We were disappointed wit the restaurant
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.
Friendly and very helpful staff. Good food and situated in a wonderful, peaceful location but within easy walking distance to most parts of Breda.
Close to Efteling, lovely comfortable room & friendly bar/restaurant
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!
Comfortable beds, friendly staff, free parking, good heating. Need a car to get to town.
Everything was quite good. However the price of the breakfst I found too expensive. € 11,00 !! That is really not attractiv
There is no a refregerator in the room
The atmosphere,and the late opening hour of the bar.
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
Cleanliness and Breakfast
i feeling the comfortable in the room because good bed and very quiet. so i like your hotel. no
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...?
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.
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.
Given the choice and the quality (both average to low), the breakfast is too expensive (€14).
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.
staff a bit outdated rooms
The staff was helpful and spoke English. also, we liked the breakfast
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 Hotel offers spacious rooms with good facilities.
Excellent place for a peaceful stay!
the hospitality and helpfulness of the staf no
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.
easy to find, clean
Excellent sound proofing.Good atmosphere in reception. Good location. Everything in the room was clean. Beds uncomfortable/too firm
Breakfast is very good esspecially the fresh orangejuice mahine NO
convenient, good car park, resturant open late
the people were very friendly no
Easy to find and a very nice experience.
Very helpful staff and the only meal we ate there was breakfast but it had a great variety.
We liked the staff at the hotel. They were friendly and very helpful. They gave us directions to good restaurants to eat, and how to use the public transport in Cologne. The cleaning staff were good as well, they gave us new towels as soon as we asked for them. There was no bath mat on the floor in the bathroom at first, so it got a bit wet. But as soon as we asked, we got one straight away!
Easy to find, restaurant better than expected, rooms very clean even if a bit dated. Nothing that it would be fair to complain about.
Staff were friendly and efficient, and the breakfasts superb. No air conditioning in room, the only cooling was by fan.
