Let's start with the more positive side: facilities of the hotel are ok. Room was clean though very basic, and the hallways of the hotel seemed to resemble a hospital instead of a hotel. The breakfast buffet however was excellent, just like the location of the hotel. The customer service however was horrible. There's a bit of a story to...

Rocked up here on Thursday night after a long drive, easy to find, easy parking, friendly helpful staff all round (all excellent English speakers- puts us Brits to shame), rooms v basic but clean and comfortable. The place has a bit of a campus feel about it but that's ok given you're paying £50 a night for B&B. The restaurant...

We live in Amsterdam and wanted a weekend away from the busy capitol. Hotel Papendal is positioned in the middle of the Veluwe, a green oasis surrounded with many lovely small villages with Arnhem as a great shopping city. The grounds of Papendal are huge. See it as a small sport village where many associations like OSF/NSF, training schools, sport...

Good first impression. Reception area was modern and the lady at the front desk very friendly. The restaurant was closed but we were able to order a few options from the menu and they served it downstairs at the bar. Quality food and big portions. Restaurant staff was very helpful as well. No complaints there. Unfortunately, the bathroom in room...

I booked this hotel for the 'Nijmegen Four Day Walk Arrangement' they offered. Although there were aspects that could have been approved, I wasn't disappointed. The peace and quiet I sought after a day of walking, was more than delivered. I stayed in a 4 star room. It was modern and clean with a great shower, great bed,free wifi and...

Thought that the locale was very pretty. It was rural, quiet and pretty. The room and bathroom was large, very clean, modern, well furnished and comfortable.
