The rooms were nice and spacious, though the decor is a little dark. The bed was excellent and the bathroom was good and functioning well. Our extra guests arrived at four... More

Great care taken in presentation and explanation. Staff very pleasant and... More

Price quality wise a perfect stay when you are in beautiful Twente. Comfortable, very quiet rooms with all facilities except a minibar. A more than good restaurant. Look for their last minute offers. Extensive breakfast.

We booked last minute one night in this hotel, better say restaurant with option to stay overnight. Just great, a rather limited menu with orginal dishes. We choose to be surprised, and we were.
