Conveniently located boutique hotel

4 out of 5

Posted Sep 16, 2016
The hotel has a great location just a stone's throw from the Zwolle train station and sits on a lovely tree-lined street with other impressive villas that leads to the charming town center, just a 5-10 minute walk away. Well appointed with large quiet rooms away from the busy street and comfortable beds. Strong wifi and friendly staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We had a lovely short stay in this smashing hotel. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, and the hotel was very comfortable. Zwolle itself is also lovely!

For the money when I booked found it very good value for money and the experience a delight - hidden extras caught me out a bit, City taxes, car parking etc. but overall was still reasonable and highly recommended

Lovely town centre hotel

5 out of 5
Posted Mar 9, 2015
Literally 1 minute from the station. Nice welcome from very pleasant staff. Room and bathroom very well appointed. Just one little gesture made it perfect having had a long Sunday morning breakfast and being the last to leave the dining area rather than be rushed along the chap serving asked if I would like a fresh coffee to enjoy. In this busy world that was a lovely jesture, rather than feel I was being rushed along I was shown a nice courtesy.

Sandton Pillows did not disappoint!

Pros: It was warm, charming, clean, had modern amenities, wonderful bed and the staff were friendly; we especially liked the receptionist with the ponytail!
Cons: Give your guests complimentary coffee throughout the day!
Location: Lovely shopping district set in a beautiful park with a castle and old cathedral. We were charmed by the town, even though the weather was not good.
The receptionist at the desk (pretty blonde pony-tailed gal) was so kind and friendly and made us feel welcomed and special - she deserves a raise!!! Our room was lovely and everything was so clean and inviting - the bed was wonderful! The only change I would make is to give guests complimentary coffee when they return to the hotel from a day of site=seeing instead of charging them for a cup. Btw, the pony-tailed receptionist did give us a free cup of coffee on our first day when another employee tried to charge us - we were so grateful to her; I know it's a small thing but this goes a long way with a guest. Much cheaper hotels give complimentary coffee to their guests. I hope this suggestion is something you will think about changing in your lovely hotel!:) I'd give this hotel a 5 for excellent if they do!:)

Convenience to the Train station excellent

Pros: The building, furnishing and service
Cons: The Cleaning requires a lot of improvement
Location: The location logistically for getting around using the train was fantastic
The building and furnishings were excellent, but unfortunately the cleaning left a lot to be desired. The floor required a thorough cleaning - Get that right and the ratings will increase

No Climate Control, Unhelpful Staff

2 out of 5
by from New York, NY
Posted Jun 7, 2013
Pros: Tasty Breakfast Buffet, Well Decorated Rooms, High Ceilings, Comfortable Beds
Cons: Resourcefulness, Politeness and Efficiency of Hotel Staff
Location: Near the train station. A short walk to the center of town.
We arrived at the Sandton Pillows easily, it being located just steps from the Zwolle train station. Our room had high ceilings, large windows, and was beautifully decorated. The bed was comfortable. However, the room had one MAJOR flaw: the windows did not open, the climate control did not work, and the hotel staff were unwilling acknowledge and address the problem. At first we thought it was a fluke, until we discovered that all of the other hotel guests had the same experience. After being told that there was no problem (the room was clearly 30* Celsius / 85* Farenheit), we were first told that "nothing could be done about it", until the manager finally capitulated and called a repair company that failed to fix the problem. As of our departure, it still had not been resolved. The manager offered us a small discount on our rate and didn't charge us for the tasty breakfast, but I would gladly have paid more for functioning climate control and good service.

Leuk maar niet bijzonder

Posted Jan 30, 2017
Pluspunten: de locatie (10min wandelen naar het centrum) en de ruimte van de kamer Minpunten: zeer slecht bed, matig ontbijt en de helft van het personeel kan niet lachen. Overall: degelijk maar geen 4 sterren voor deze prijs
