    « superb location, friendly staff that cares »

    Staying at this Best Western hotel is a treat. The castle itself is where you have you breakfast (in a semi-basement level, with windows and daylight though) and can enjoy lunch or dinner. The rooms are in very very short walking distance from the castle. They are in small separate buildings of up to about six rooms each with your own entrance, small hallway, bedroom, bathroom. The size of the rooms is depending on your preference and wallet, from smaller compact rooms up to suites with separate bedroom and seating area, sofa. The hotel is situated in a very quiet part of the Netherlands. You will not be wakened by the sound of cars, but singing birds in the nearby trees are a possibility. Great!

    « Comfortable, good service and great food »

    Very comfortable hotel. The rooms are located in small bungalows next to the mansion, which means privacy and quiet rooms. The 'castle' is very well preserved and nicely decorated. The restaurant and breakfast room are located in the 'castle', both have very good food. It's not a very surprising or hip hotel, it's classic and comfortable. Putten may not be a very exiting town but it's alright for a stroll. The forests surrounding the hotel are very pretty for a walk or bike ride.

    « Bad taste »

    The hotel has a lovely setting, its away from the town yet very close to the motorway. Rooms are way of bungalows. This hotel is very popular for weddings and due to the grounds its understandable, we were also here for a family wedding. The rooms are not that clean, we had long hairs between the quilt and bed sheet, dirt on a bed pillow and part of the quilt. On the first night a number of us ate at the hotels restaurant, which I warn you is expensive. Breakfast is typical European, arrange of cold meats and cheese, bread, croissants, boiled eggs, bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs (disgusting on the first day), fruit, yoghurt, cereal, fruit juice and coffees. Got to give a mention for the Priest who gave a great service for the newly weds, very humorous at times. The wedding was great. When I arrived home a few days later I noticed the hotel has charged me twice for our stay, with the second amount actually higher, I obviously contacted the hotel, I was informed that the financial person was not in until the Thursday, well Thursday has come and gone, no correspondence and no refund, very poor customer service, this should have been dealt with immediately, regardless. So not only poor customer service but to take a payment without the customers knowledge or authorisation is fraudulent.

    Way off the beaten track, this is my second time here and again it offers excellent value for the price paid, with a good choice at breakfast. The immediate surroundings within the grounds make it look an idyllic place to be with the rivers and over hanging trees

    « A great place to unwind »

    We recently stayed in this fine hotel/castle. It's one of the finest examples of history preservation and covert it in a hotel. You feel at most welcome here and the reception staff does everything to make your stay comfortable. There's no mountain high enough so to speak! My wife has an injured leg and still recovers from it, the reception staff took us to the hotelroom by golfcart. Because the rooms are located somewhere els on the terrain. The rooms are spaceous and very clean aswell as up to modern standards. The staff overall were great, very helpful aswell as entertaining well at least one guy jumped out. The beds are comfy but it starts to show that the matrasses are wearing of now. Overall you find peace and quietness here and after a good night sleep they have a good breakfast waiting for you. One can only imagine why people want to celbrate their weddings at The Vanenburg, it's got the whole package. From ancient history to romantic settings, it works! We decided to have at least one dinner at the castle, well we wished they had an extensive menu instead of a small one. The quality, the presentation as well as all the flavors, it works very well and did their magic. Here you'll order a carpaccio in a way different style you normally would get in a restaurant. However all good things come to an end and with sadness in our hearts we had to leave this place. But we will be back in the nearby future!

    « romantic setting, beautiful garden; not a 'castle', but a manor for breakfast/dinner and bungalows as hotelrooms »

    The name 'Castle The Vanenburg' does not really fit the actual setting. The manor is very nice and stately, but it is not a castle. The grounds are very well kept and beautiful. Wonderful to walk around in. The rooms vary in size and price, starting with the comfort rooms - cozy but adequate - up to the luxury suites. The airconditioning cannot keep up with the heat on very warm days, but it does get the edge of the heat and the AC-unit is very quiet. Comfortable beds. The breakfast room is in the manor itself, but it is sort of semi-basement level, although there is ample view from the windows up and out into the yard.

    « Nice stay over »

    Stayed here on business for an overnight. Book the hotel because I could not find a decent price hotel in Amsterdam. No regret so far, the estate is really amazing, nice country side in May. the restaurant for dinner is really outstanding, good food and very nice service. I would come back if I can.

    « Fantastic countryside hotel »

    I stayed one week in this lovely countryside old manorhouse during a business trip in NL. Beautiful old building with fantastic gardens ands canals. Breakfast was very good, specially the possibility to press your own orange juice. The dinner in the manorhouse terraza was very good too. The rooms are in more modern small garden houses with own entrance, nearby parkings, own terraza to sit down and enjoy (if the weather allows). I will be surely back in spring-summer season.

    A wonderful place to stay in the middle of nowhere, (but quite near the motorway network) very peaceful. Excellent standard of accommodation for an exceptionally good price of under €60 for B/B. very attractive setting with a walk under the trees and beside the river to access many of the rooms. Apart from not being able to arrange to get something to eat in the restaurant When I phoned to say I would be arriving most likely just after 9pm, I was very satisfied with my one night stay. One of the best value for money hotels I have stayed in.

    « Most beautiful Best Western hotel I ever stayed in. »

    Beautiful location and very relaxing environment with beautiful walking path and garden around the castle. Very delicious breakfast with a great variety of food items. Friendly staff and clean beds and rooms.

    « Only downside is the quality of the standard room... »

    Stayed here with work for a two day event. Excellent location (truly beautiful!!!), excellent staff (you really felt taken care off by them) and excellent banqueting service (plenty of freshly prepared quality food). As we were here overnight, we were booked in the standard single room. I hardly ever encounter a single room with a single bed... This Best Western still does. The room has a nice bathroom (good size, good quality), a wash basin in the bedroom and is nicely located in small cottages on the estate grounds. I have already recommended others to go to this location when having to organize a training or other sort of corporate event. I would however pay just a few more bucks and stay in the slightly more expensive rooms.

    « Superb conference venue »

    This was my second stay here. As usual the rooms, food and service were exemplary. Special thanks to Richard Boersma our chef and Wim Burger for his technical support and getting my Apple technology to work on the hotel's platform! This is a first class venue for small executive gatherings in a relaxed, informal and private setting. They also have larger conference facilities available.

    « Excellent Venue »

    This is like no other Best Western you will have stayed at. The location is stunning with many individual rooms laid out in small houses around the grounds, all with bathrooms and a study/sitting room. The property dates back several hundred years and includes a castle where meals are served (excellent service and quality) together with two coach houses, both superb for conferences (check out the reclining chandelier that allows you to use the projection facilities!) and enjoying well equipped break-out rooms. In the grounds there is a bar and dance hall area and the gardens are lovely. Situated 50 miles north of Amsterdam and in a quiet location, perfect for conferences and weddings.

    « Stunning place »

    This is a fine conference hotel. The central house / castle is well equipped, boasts very nicely renovated dining rooms with beautiful paintings. We had a fine diner there. We were served very well, and I would like to stress that the staff that served us was still in training. The little houses that are located on the hotel's premises are new, well maintained and well equipped. We had a conference there and this is just the place to be. The WIFI is free and works, but the only minus I could detect is that it does not allow you to send e-mail through outlook, looking as if the system wants us to prevent to communicate with the outer world.

    « Beautiful conference resort »

    What a pleasant surprise just outside Putten. Only a 15 minute walk from the trainstation. There is also a free pickup offered by the hotel. Rooms are very nice but vary in size. I stayed in a room with bubble bath. The grounds are kept very nicely, with lots of beautiful flowers. Very good conference facilities. Good breakfast and other meals. One of the best conference centrers I have been, ever!

    « True Five Star Accommodation and Dining »

    I stayed here for work for three nights and I can honestly say this place is stunning, the food was exquisite the accommodation was beautiful, clean and quiet. The staff were all very happy, polite and helpful. This would be a fantastic place for a wedding or special occasion and I hope that I need to do work in this area again. Did I mention that the food is fantastic?! Make sure that you book a place at their fine dining restaurant, some of the best food I have ever had! My top tip would be, to call the hotel if arriving by train and they will provide a free shuttle service from the station.

    « Top hotel & restaurant in a beautiful setting »

    This is a lovely place in a beautiful old house or I should say a castle really with a fantastic restaurant and very helpful staff. I had a wedding celebration here, but we all stayed an extra day because it is so nice here. Very quiet with beautiful gardens, peaceful setting, excellent food, a nice bar and a little chapel with fantastic instruments (orghan/piano), all in all the perfect place to get married, but certainly worth a visit as a tourist. Lovely little towns close by and an area for walks or bike rides.
