What People are saying

Not convenient for business

Debie Bon 05/06/2015 02:37

I stayed here during a business trip! I would not recommend this hotel again for anyone who has to work in the hotel. The internet connection was bad and the rooms/ hotel was outdated. The best thing about the hotel was free parking space. Would not stay here again!

Decent hotel, too many minor slip-ups (certainly no 4*!!)

Paul Mon 04/09/2014 18:35

The hotel’s basic amenities are more than adequate. The rooms are ample and clean and the food is good (try the ‘Blonde d’Aquitaine’ entrecote: it is big, tender and very, very tasty!). The hotel is located centrally in a beautiful part of the Netherlands, the province of Drenthe, with all interesting sites within an easy distance.
A minus, location wise, is the A28 motorway almost literally through the backyard of the hotel. This doesn’t exactly make it a quiet hotel.
However, we experienced many slip-ups making the overall experience a lot less enjoyable than it might have been.
I must point out that the staff was not to blame for any of them, but the major problem was there just not being sufficient staff. We never saw more than two members of staff present at any time, all executing multiple roles (we saw one girl acting as receptionist, janitor, waitress and even mopping up the breakfast room floor in the evening).
Here’s what went wrong:
• When checking in the receptionist wanted to make a photocopy of my ID, which is illegal in the Netherlands! After protesting she let me fill out a form with exactly the same data I provided when making the booking through the Best Western website.
• Even though we booked through the Best Western website, guaranteed through a valid credit card (a small amount was blocked on the card) and a Best Western Rewards card number, we still had to pay the full room rate in advance.
Surprisingly, the bar and restaurant bills could be booked on the room and settled at departure.
• The room rate was totally wrong. It should have been 2 adults, 2 nights which was correctly mentioned on the bill, but the rate they charged was for 1 person, 1 night. Oops.
• City tax is quoted as € 1,15 pppn on the BW website, they wanted to charge us € 3,- pppn.
• We had booked a suite without a waterbed (we both dislike waterbeds), but got a suite WITH a waterbed. It turns out they have two suites, both WITH a waterbed. (So if you want a suite with a waterbed, book one without and save nearly half the price!)
The receptionist was very helpful and booked us over to a deluxe room in just a couple of minutes (and was considerate enough to inquire if we had slept well the next day).
• The service in the restaurant was painfully slow, due to the fact there were only two members of staff present (actually that is 1½, or less, for the restaurant due to executing multiple tasks).
When you’re the first in the restaurant, it is best to notify reception before entering. Otherwise you could be there for a long time before anyone notices you’re there.
• The breakfast was almost completely unattended (just one, multi-multifunctional staff present). Coffee and juice came from dispensers and if you want a fried egg, you can fry one yourself on a table grill.
Each of the above points in itself isn’t very serious, but add them all together they make for a rather unsatisfactory stay.
There is a saying in the Netherlands: ‘many small ones make a big one’. How very true!

Peace and quiet in Drenthe (NL)

Quiet, Clean and comfortable. A nice holtel on the edge of the Dwingelderveld National Park, and just off the motorway (A28).
The hotel has a number of different room types. (Budget, Standard, Luxury and Suite. Also conference facilities). We stayed in a luxury room. It had plenty of room, and it was nice to have a proper shower as well as a bath. The room had an outside sitting area, which would have been really great if the sun had come out.
The Hotel resturant called OP2 (from the address of the hotel "Oude Postweg 2") serves very good food. The menu however is a little restricted. (Included vegitarian choices). One of their specialities is fresh lobster. They have a selection in a tank, and you can choose which you want. The resturant has a large outside patio/seating area, which should be lovely in the summer months.
With the exception of the budget rooms, the whole of the hotel is on one level, which should make life easy for those that have difficulty getting around.
The hotel has its own parking area. There was a bus stop just outside the hotel.

Spacious room, nice restaurant and hall

The hotel is located about 10 minutes by car from the nearest city. My room was big with a nice bathroom and shower.
Quality of sleep so so, could hear the neighboor watching TV. Breakfast acceptable.
I did not eat at the restaurant but it looked very nice. Private parking available.
Wi-fi worked OK.

Outdated rooms - No 4* hotel

WieMie-nlon 21/08/2011 16:08

This hotel is situated in a very nice area, between Hoogeveen and Assen and located at the edge of the Dwingelderveld. The hotel offers several cycling routes and supplies.

The entrance of this hotel looks nice and shows the 4-Star hotel sign. Reception staff is friendly and there's a nice open terrace with fountain to grab a drink.

Next to the reception a door will lead you to the hallway with the rooms. Some maintenance is required here. The room itself smelled pretty bad and several stains in the ceiling and bathroom. The bathroom itself seems pretty outdated with old-fashioned coloring and no bath (later we've noticed the 'Budget Double Room' does have a bath while the 'Standard Double Room' doesn't. Two separate beds and a rather small TV in a corner don't add up to a 4-star rating.

All rooms are non-smoking and a door gives access to the shared terrace. The room is fited with roller shutters so it will get really dark at night, combined with no outside noise due to the quiet area add up to a great sleep. If you're not moving in the noisy bed that is, or you neighbour (walls are pretty thin).

Breakfast does make up for a lot of these issues, the breakfast is great! Still we don't think this is a 4* hotel...
