Great amazing grounds. Great staff. Good breakfast if you like cold Continental. Only bacon and scrambled egg cooked. Room way below par. You actually get better at a cheap budget hotel. 'bathroom' has shower and toilet. No mirror, soap screwed to the wall, NO WASH BASIN of any kind in the bathroom this is in the actual room it self. ( Yes you read right). Most unhygienic and uncomfortable. Two large hand towels ( one per guest) which the hotel says are bath towels. Not. Small Serviet size towel at the basin in the bedroom and that's it as far as towels are concerned. So basically a guest has onectowel per day for shower and other needs. The shower tray is very slippery but no bathmat provided. Only a small floor towel and you will have to choose if you place it in the shower for safety or on the floor outside the shower. The shower is covered by large glass sliding door. Someone could easily slip and fall through that plate glass door. No coffee or tea facilities in the room. No airco. No Info folder in room. No room service but an unwelcome 12 euro per night as a ' service charge' on top of usual tourist tax. There are better hotels in Maastricht. This place totally trades on its gardens and location. Actual hotel facilities are very budget. As the gardens are open to the public and so is the terras we suggest you stay elsewhere and merely visit this place for a cup of coffee.
Hotel is nice in a beautiful countryside setting. Room comfortable but no tea and coffee facilities or glasses provided. Arrived at 6pm and asked to book a table for dinner at 8.45. Reception was advised going for 8.30pm as the kitchen closed around 9pm. Not a problem. Went at 8.30 and were given menus for the four-course dinner. Waiter took the drinks order then came back about five minutes later and said the chef would only allow us a main course. When we looked confused he said he would go and speak again to the chef. We left and headed into town. Experience reminded me of the Fawlty Towers episode when the American had to pay the chef to stay behind to cook. Told receptionist what happened and she was horrified and said she would inform the manager. Thought we might have had an apology from them later, but nothing. Not what you would expect from a hotel of this quality.
I just returned from two days 9/08 - 10/08 castle Vaeshartelt in Maastricht! First impression on the driveway is amazing and very beautiful castle. Ample parking behind the castle closed bicycle storage, camera !!! Friendly welcome! Booking was via Bongo voucher for 2 people for 2 nights. Or costly to local tax, charge 12 euros for two people per night = 24 euros.
If you're spending a hectic week driving around Europe, this is a great place to find some respite if your travels take you to Maastricht. It is an easy ten minute drive in a beautiful estate setting just outside of the city,and close to other highways that will take you elsewhere. It's centered in an old mansion/castle and surrounding grounds. I took an inexpensive room and it was clean, modern, spare but adequate with a window that could be opened to the woods. The bed was too soft for my taste. But there was something about the place that bothered me. It may have been the stern scowl on the face of the person who checked me in (the big orange cat on the counter was a pleasant surprise for this cat lover, though even it seemed to be indifferent and disdainful, which was okay because it was a cat after all). I did not opt for the breakfast, but when I asked the young lady at the door of the dining room if I could just buy a cup of coffee she at first insisted that I had to be signed up for the breakfast. I asked again, and she allowed that I could pour myself a cup out of the espresso machine, which, when I pushed the button, gave me maybe two ounces of liquid caffeine and no more than that. At checkout I found two coffee charges on my bill at the rate of 5 euro per two ounces. The extra charge was removed upon my complaint, and they may have deleted the other two ounces from the bill, I can't be sure. There are no grace notes like coffee machines in the rooms (or at least in mine) and no ice machines anywhere, though the bar was happy to give me large glasses filled with ice upon request. I think what bothered me was that though it was a beautiful place it did not seem to be a happy place. That's not a fair and objective criticism at all, but I left after three nights happy that I was going. Otherwise, highly recommended for the positive reasons above.
This hotel has beautiful buildings, common area rooms and surroundings. Lots of free parking space too, no charging pole for electric cars though. They do have sockets where you can (slow)charge with a normal power plug: one inside and one outside, not very convenient, you have to ask specifically. Hotel room (211) was basic, but nice. We missed some things, like coffee- and tea-making facilities and bathrobes. As it is a 3-star hotel without pool/ wellness, they don’t have to have these things, however. Shower was great, the bed had a big trench in the middle and we both did not really liked the mattress (too soft?). It’s pretty though and close to Maastricht and a good place to get to Valkenburg and Aachen for example.
Stayed here for 1 night during a business trip in the area. Hotel is located at an excellent spot. Great surrounding gardens and nice area to walk in during the afternoon. Service at check-in was good and friendly. Rooms are spacious and have all amenities; nothing special however. WIFI is free and of good quality. Optional breakfast in the morning is available. Not cheap but of good quality. All together a really nice hotel to spend the night if you are travelling in this area!
The Hotel is located in a beautiful area which is great for people as for their dogs. The food in the Bistro is good an We were a bit taken aback to suddenly have to pay 25 euro's per dog since we were never charged when we stayed here before. We don't mind to pay a bit but we think 25 euro's a dog per day is too much especially when you are given a rather small room in which you have to fit the two dogs in as well.
The hotel is a bit outside of Maastricht, on large castle/large farm premises. It has a nice courtyard. Parking though is a bit away, so you need to walk (if it is raining you will get wet). Rooms are ok. Basic but having all reasonable amenities. Breakfast is basic. There is a gym, which is very basic but ok to keep fit.
The hotel is beautiful in an amazing location. It’s clean and rooms are comfortable. However, service leaves much to be desired. The lamp on the bathroom mirror was out of order and I asked if I could have it fixed; this happened in the morning before leaving the hotel. The evening it was still broken, so I went to the reception and asked for a solution. They promised to send someone but no one arrived. I left the day after and the lamp was still not working. Personnel was also very slow at the brasserie and it took us 2 hours to eat one dish. After the main course we waited 30 minutes for the waiter, to order coffee, but eventually we got tired and left. Absolutely not worth the price. Beautiful ginger cat at the reception partially compensated the disappointment.
On the plus side: great setting, lovely food, service with a smile. Our room was clean and quiet. Praise for the shower. The biggest minus was the almost complete lack of WiFi connectivity in the room. Even in the lobby it was hit and miss. The room was high quality but spartan. Very few extras. Plastic glasses were not rellaced and we had to ask. No soap or shower cap - just wall-mounted gels. The 20-minute walk to P+R Maastricht Noord is an optimistic view!
