    The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was a real treat and the Brassiere was superb, couldn't fault it. We had the 4 course meal with wine for each course, delightful!

    If the pool was bigger it would have been perfect.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. Any requests were dealt with efficiently. Felt that nothing was too much trouble. Bedrooms/bathrooms what you would expect from 5* hotel - clean, well equipped etc. Public areas very well presented. Baskets of fresh fruit all around the hotel for guests' consumption was a particularly nice touch.

    The buffet breakfast seemed overpriced at 20 Euro per person and could only be described as 'luxurious' as on the hotel menu if you paid extra for the 'a la carte' version which included blinis with caviar. Buffet breakfast on the p&o ferry at around £10 per person was superior with greater variety of food to choose from than that provided in the hotel - not really what was expected from a 5* establishment

    Absolutely everything I liked. Stay there and you only will confirm my words.

    Great stay, efficient/professional staff, beautiful surrounding, nice room.

  • Single
    9.2

    pleasant garden and wellness centre and room service and good facilities in room - shower, bathroom etc

    the photographs of the pool in the brochure are misleading - it is the size of a pocket handkerchief

  • Single

    Wonderful room, decent spa, good breakfast. Great location.

    Room service menu very limited after 10:00 PM. Front desk did not have my reservation that I booked through Booked.net when I arrived.

  • Single
    5.0

    Nice hotel, the best you'll find in Utrecht.

    Staff is very Dutch, clumsy when it comes to service... But overall friendly. Too bad about the guy who checked me out, he was just grumpy/rude for no good reason.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Excellent hotel, Big and Nice rooms, and the food from the Brasserie was superb.

    The pool área was dirty.

  • Family with children

    Champagne breakfast is a plus, comfort of the room and the spa.

  • Older travelers

    This hotel is amazing and very centrally located. The restaurant serves 5-star quality food, as does the brasserie. Breakfast is also a treat. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful.

  • Older travelers

    The luxury room, had the most comftable bed ever! and the wellbeing centre was fantastic

    Breakfast was very disapointing, for 20 euros each

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Location is a plus, close to the train, historical areas and shopping all within easy walking distance.

    The beds aren't all that comfortable.
