I had a room at the top of the new residence. The bed was comfortable in the spacious room. The view was the sky and roofs around but I didn't have to worry about closing blinds. The shower didn't have an enclosure, just the nozzle in the tub and the mirrors were to high for me. They said that the... More

Fine hotel in a old building at the main square of Bergen op Zoom. Traditional outside recently re furnished room with a ver good atmosphere. But what really makes the difference is the staff! They are very service minded a friendly.

I've booked a Superior Suite which absolutely fabulous! Just a place, wonderful ceiling, lovely decoration. The size of the room is 50-60 m2. This particular room located in the second building of the hotel overlooking beautiful Grote Markt. Staff is very helpful. Linen is too narrow for the bed size, shower has to be replaced.

Lovely Hotel. Friendly reception. Great position. However, the day we arrived there was a Beer Event going on (which was excellent) so the Hotel Car Park was locked early. We were advised and directed to another Car Park which was just a few minutes away. This Car Park was Achter de Grotesque Markt. Hopefully spelt it correctly. Seemed very secure... More

The hotel breaths old and classic, however the rooms are quite modern and nice. However the rooms in my opinion are quite small. Furthermore the wifi is below any standard and does not work well in the evening. Using it to browse internet is almost impossible. Breakfast is small but well served. Don't know if there is anything better in... More

The service was excellent from the owner of the hotel to the reservation clerks and cleaning staff. The clerk at reservations was very helpful in suggesting some places to visit. The breakfast was excellent. All in all, a very nice stay. I look forward to returning soon.

First visit to that part of Holland, hotel recommended by local business associates. Fronts right on the old square, and it seems odd to drive through the square, past all the cafes to check-in, but they assured me it was quite normal. Apparently, the oldest hotel in Holland, in business over 600 years. Nice combination of old styling and architecture,... More

Nice hotel in the city centre. Rooms are fine, airco available. Wifi signal pretty good as well. Breakfast is ok. € 15 for parking is just too much. And somehow I did not notice at the booking that they would charge this amount.

Centrally located hotel and very fast check in. This is an old hotel which has been refurbished resulting in some hotels being a little bit more difficult to find. My room was a lift ride, a walk along a coridor, round a corner and then down some stairs. The room was recently refurbished and the shower room was excellent. Reception... More

Stayed there for two consecutive nights. The rooms were not as nice as expected from this hotel, advertising as the oldest hotel in the Netherlands. The beds were old and the interior rather plain. Also the breakfast was not included, and a price of 15€ was charged for the buffet. Hotel staff was nice and helpful however, and the location... More

“Great penthouse rooms are 601 and 602. Room 302 faces the square and can be noisy.”
