"Super friendly staff, beautiful hotel & area"
Checked in for a long weekend at this hotel, it was a surprise weekend for my birthday and have to say, the staff really went out of their way to make us feel very very welcome. It's the small gestures that count, from a heartfelt welcome, big smile and handshake at the reception, to a present in the room and a dessert with sparkles for my birthday in their excellent restaurant - one word - GREAT! Beautiful room, great area and lovely to cycle and relax. We will return! Once again, the staff could not be friendlier it made our stay very memorable . Mark & Frank

"Netherlands Adventure"
I was here to visit my new company that I started working for in May 2015. I travelers her by the NL Railroad. I was here for five days and this hotel met my needs in Ruurlo. It has a restaurant attached that was very good. Breakfast bar every morning.

"Best hotel we have ever been to!"
The service is excellent, very friendly, warm welcome, very good (local) foods, two restaurants with fantastic foods (also popular among locals), clean, quiet, very tidy rooms. Ruurlo is a very nice little town. Cosy atmosphere / 'gezellig'! A lot of options for sports, hiking, cycling, shopping, relaxing. We have visited the hotel twice, and we would love to stay here again in the future.

"A Special Place"
We stayed a couple of days in this hotel. We were happy to have been in the Avenarius in Ruurlo. The hotel staff was always friendly. We will remember this hotel as special because of the excellent food that is served in the restaurant. You get the choice between some 25 dishes (8,50 EUR per dish) which are served as tapas. But tapas is not the word, it's a very varied and inventive kitchen. I posted a pic with this review. We found the restaurant room very stylish, clearly it was renovated but in a nice classical style not that long ago. The room was spatious and although on the ground floor, we didn't experience any noise from outside. The bathroom could use a little upgrade to match with the rest of the room, but that's merely a detail. All equipment is there. We enjoyed the stay very much and would definitely go back to this quality hotel!

"Nice and comfortable Hotel in the quite Dutch Countryside"
I had a stop of a couple of nights in Avenarius Hotel and I remained very positively impressed. Hotel has all kind of basic comfort with large rooms, well equipped bathroom, very good breakfast buffet and great Restaurant. Look is very nice, well maintained and ambience is really quite, no noise and you have great sleep, while all personnel is really nice and always available. Price is good and frankly speaking I recommend strongly if you want to stay in a pleasant place within 1-1,5 hr. By car from largest Dutch or even German towns.
