“Unspectacular business hotel, high priced”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

I had to stay in that hotel for two times now, business related.

The hotel is directly in the towncenter and give a great view over war "water-rich"-towndesign.

The hotel offers some very tight parking slots, so if you're not very safe with you car, better park outside.
The rooms are at best "medium", of course, 4star standard, with a working place and an acceptable roomsize.
The staff in the restaurant, for dinner and breakfast was very friendly and helpful, the selection of foods was good, and all I tested was good.

But nethertheless the hotel is getting older, and thats easy to see, a lot of scratches and damages, all very small - typical town center hotel.

For "just sleep" a good selection, if you prefer bigger rooms, and are flexible with the location, there are some much better options in the small towns aroud stadskanal

The lobby doesn't look much but the hotel makes up for it when you get into your room. However it takes a while for you to reach your room though as the lift is VERY slow. So after the first day I used the stairs.

My room was lovely, very large and airy. It had large floor to ceiling windows which went out onto a balcony. The views were lovely at night looking out to the South of the town.There was even a small porthole window which looked out to the West. I had booked a double which turned out to be two singles put together. The condition of the room was clean are there was the usual amenities - coffee, tea, shampoo etc.

My only slight grumble (and this wasn't really the Hotel's fault) was I stayed over Easter when nearly all the shops of Stadskanaal are shut. If you want to bring back food as holiday gifts you are suddenly faced with a large bill. I ended up buying Pickwick tea through the hotel and Edam, waffles through Schipol airport. Not the most cost effective way of ending your holiday!!

The hotel charges for car parking but there is a free carpark 1 minute away just nextdoor to the theatre (which is nextdoor to the hotel!) Put it this way I could see my car from my balcony.

There are 2 foodstores very nearby which were very handy (when they were open!)

Altogether I like my stay here and will be staying again on my next visit to Stadskanaal in July.

  • Liked — The size of the room, lightness and balcony
  • Disliked — Easter Saturday meant no room service

The room was clean, we arrived late and asked if we could have an extra room. This was no problem and even got the same great internet rate.

The breakfast was ok, room and bathroom clean and bedsheets and furniture in mint condition.

The elevator is a little slow but did not bother me. The people at reception told me a new elevator will be installed in september 2005.

The only thing is that was really missing in our room was having an affordale (wireless) internet connection. We stayed in room 604 and the 'computer' connection was not wired at all. I managed to hold the laptop on the balcony terrace and was able to check my mail through a free signal from one of the neighbours.
