"Nice business hotel"
I have stayed there a couple of times on business. The rooms are spacious and clean. Beds are great and a good desk to work at. The best thing about the Hotel is restaurant. Fantastic meals and vine selection.

"beautiful hotel in a superb location"
the hotel is beautifully decorated, rooms nice not so big, big bathroom with tub but so hospital like. Could have some more small things, like bodymilk ... Very nice breakfast , everything of good quality! Situated in a nice little town, surrounded by beautiful woods.

"Nice hotel, friendly staff, well located"
Stayed for one night. The room was clean and nice, the staff was welcoming and overall, the atmosphere was easy going. I didn't try the restaurant but the breakfast was good. The location is very good. However, as in many other hotels, sounds travel quite easily from the corridor to the room - so better bring earplugs. :) That would be the only drawback to my experience, otherwise all was good.

"Quaint and friendly"
This is a small inn in the village of Ruurlo. I came here and stayed for the better part of a week on a business trip. The hotel is very nice and clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel restaurant has some appetizing dishes. Worth staying at if you're in the area. The only downside is that the stores in town close very early (5 pm). So you're limited in what you can do locally.

Ruurlo & Surroundings

In the village of Ruurlo you can take in the picturesque little streets, the village church from 1350, the Agneta windmill from 1851 and the Cuyperskerk from 1871.
