        • Older travelers

          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.

          • Average rating
            9.6
        • Older travelers

          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

          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.
