    « Stay here if you want to be in the centre of town »

    I stayed on this hotel while attending a course in Assen. The room was not booked by me, but by the course provider. During my stay the hotel was going through renovation work. Unfortunately, I stayed on one of the old rooms. The room was big, but it was a bit tired and an unpleasant smell came from the toilet. I would advise you to book one of the renovated rooms, I think they might be better. What I really liked was the location, right in the centre of Assen, near the museum, archive, city hall, shops and a 5 minutes walk from the train station. The traditional market also happens right in front of the hotel, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. On weekends you can hear noise coming from a club. I found the staff to be a bit unfriendly. To my surprise, one girl at the reception was not very good at English, something that is a bit strange in the Netherlands, considering that most people are very good with English. Breakfast was served on a building beside the hotel. It was the usual stuff you find in hotels, nothing amazing about it.

    « Average hotel (3). Above average location and restaurant/bar... »

    Stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is superbly located downtown close to shopping and dining. We had a great dinner there 1 evening. Good food and wonderful service. The room we had was large and clean, and had recently been renovated. Someone is not paying attention to detail, as the room telephone did not work as the plug for it was somewhere behind the renovated wall unit. Also, at least 3 electrical outlets had no power.

    « Relaxing stay »

    We stayed here with our son (20). We had rooms 303 & 305. These are newly decorated rooms. Large and very comfortable. We stayed here whilst visiting the Truckfest at the TT circuit. The town of Assen is lovely. lots of streets to wander round, lots of little independently owned shops and restaurants to eat at.

    « interesting hotel in the heart of Assen »

    Loved the location and shops, markets, and bars all around. Everything seems to close early but great location where you can walk to just about everything. Some rooms face the market area which can start setting up around 5am. There is also a large club on the weekends nearby. They actually have earplugs in the room for ya. Hotel is basic and clean. always a few weird things- hair dryer didnt work, no shower towels in room. I figured i would just get some the next morning before taking my shower. went down to front desk at 7am and it was closed shut. I ended up boring a coworkers extra towel. a decent selection of cable channels. Rooms were clean and very basic. I have stayed at other Hotels close to Assen, but will stay at this one again because of the location.

    « Good quality hotel in the heart of Assen »

    For the money this hotel represents good value, it's surprisingly large and being in the heart of Assen's town centre it is convenient for shops, restaurants and even the local museum. However, the hotel is currently being renovated so there is a stark contrast between the old and the new and there was some building work such as drilling around 11:00 a.m. but most guests have usually checked out by then. The rooms are modern, simple but functional, the double bed has two separate mattresses which we didn't find comfortable and we also experienced problems with air con units - so much so that we had to abandon one room for another in the early hours of the morning. Despite this, the situation was handled with the minimum of fuss and we were allowed a late check out which really helped. All in all, once the renovations have been completed and if the rates remain at £60 per night or less, this hotel would represent good value for money as the overall experience was positive, all staff were polite and the service was good.

    « Renovations ongoing »

    The hotel is situated in the center of town, with many restaurants and bars nearby. My room was rather basic, but clean. Renovations of other rooms were ongoing in the same floor, so it felt a bit like walking through a building site on the way to my room. Staff at the reception were very friendly. The breakfast was good and is served in the neighbouring restaurant. Wifi was free and worked well. All in all a reasonable hotel to stay for a night or two. By the way, free transport is provided to the NAM office, a 5 minutes drive.

    « 3 star hotel, 5 star restaurant & service »

    This hotel warrants its 3 star rating, the rooms are basic and could be improved for comfort. Room recently refurbished but bathroom not. Clean and fine to stay in for a few nights. The reason I'd come back time and time again is the restaurant. €27.50 for a three course meal is exceptional value, the food is fantastic, you'd pay much more in the UK and the staff are delightful. Very polite and it's an enjoyable experience to eat here.

    « Visiting old friends »

    We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time staff very helpfull & friendly, rooms were ideal and spotless, location is smack in the middle of Assen. I stayed at this hotel as a very young player on a rugby trip in the late 1980s, I can tell you the change is unberlievable. Apparentley still in the same family. Would reccomend.
