    « Rein deer dinner »

    « friendly owners that make you feel right at home; perfect location! »

    The location of this hotel in the heart of Raalte is perfect. We had a wonderful view of the big church that is towering next to it. The owners make you feel right at home. Super client friendly check-out process. The rooms on the third (and highest) floor get a bit warm in the summer when the windows were closed during the day. Perphaps screens could help to have the windows open without getting flies inside. We didn't understand the two levels in the floor of the breakfast room. The lower part was not used, a bit as storage for extra chairs and tables. The breakfast room could be made into one level, freeing up more space. The town of Raalte and this hotel are a perfect place to venture out to go and see attractions in nearby cities, like the Rijksmuseum Twenthe in Enschede and MORE (modern realism) in Gorssel. We enjoyed our stay in this town and hotel.

    « Nice hotel in central Raalte , Holland. »

    « Very Nice Business Hotel with a Personal Touch! »

    This hotel was conveniently located in the center of town. The room was very, very clean, efficient, and the staff was accommodating. We recommend this hotel for business travelers and those who desire quietness.

    « Great at the price »

    Hotel de Zwaan is a nice average sort of place. It's very conveniently located with lots of parking and the staff is friendly, helpful and welcoming. The rooms and public spaces need a bit of sprucing up (beds and carpets) but are clean and comfortable. All in all, good for a short stay.

    « The best best western hotel I satyed in in the netherlands »

    This is a rather small scaled business hotel in the center of Raalte. The staff were extremely friendly and I got a very large and comfortable room. The room was equipped with a bath and the room had a terrace overlooking the square. In the evening I went to the bar and was offered a free beer. I realy appreciated this nice gesture. I would certainly come back when I am in the region.

    « Visit for work »

    The hotel is well positioned in the centre of Raalte. The check in was very simple and the room I was given was large and well appointed. We had an excellent meal in the restaurant which was of high quality and very well presented. There was a great selection of beers and the service was very good,it was a most enjoyable experience in a nice atmosphere. I would have no recommending this hotel.

    « Long weekend »

    My son and I were invited to Raalte to join in the City's Liberation Celebrations. The hotel was run by a family who were friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food was excellent and the wine list was very extensive. The room was large and clean. The bathroom was also large and very well decorated. I used the swimming pool which was not over chlorinated and the water temperature was great. Breakfast was a very good selection of continental and cooked items although we had to cook bacon and egg ourselves on a hot plate. There was a lovely terrace at the front of the hotel, on which you could relax with a drink and watch people go by. I was surprised to learn that this is a 3 star hotel. It was by far much better than any other 3 star hotel that I have stayed in.

    « Relax and eat well »

    A nice hotel right in the middle of Raalte. We were well looked after. The staf were always freindly and whatever you asked they did their best to help. What we will remember mare than anything, was the really good food. Not a lot of choice but there was a different day menu each day. The hotel is at one end of the pedestrian shopping area. So if shoppings your thing... If you like walking, the Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park is about 15 minutes drive away.
