Amazing modern hotel oozing old world charm
Posted Sep 22, 2016
Hotel Kasteel Bloemendal was one of the very best hotels we've ever stayed in. An old convent / monastery it has been painstakingly renovated and modernised. It has such a beautiful blend of both original or traditional decorations, furniture and effects along with more modern ones. It is a tribute to the decorators. The gardens were beautiful - either to just look out on or to wander through or sit in. There are fountains, birds and squirrels. Absolutely lovely.
The double comfort room was a good size with a lovely, small balcony over-looking the driveway and gardens. The bathroom was huge with a bath as well as walk-in shower and a separate toilet. The room even had a lovely, old style arm chair.
The dining room was immaculately decorated as if from an 19th century ballroom with amazing views over the patio and gardens. It was a pleasure eating in here. The food, too, was exceptional. Both dinner and breakfast served extremely high quality food.
