Hotel Restaurant De Zwaan

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A nice business hotel with normal rooms with no something special, clean with a good breakfast and a real quality restaurant with perfect beef. Friendly staff that makes you feel comfortable. Not far from the train station in the center of the town.

Visited de Zwaan repeatedly. Their rooms are not up to date, but clean. Breakfast in home style, everything what you need. Good value. People are very nice and their chef is also fantastic. You can eat great food ala carte and also some daily offers. Well done.

The food is absolutely amazing. The rooms themselves are what you would expect, but the cuisine is godly. Three course meal for dinner with every course being gorgeous, perfect temperature and incredibly tasty. The service is great- as soon as you have a problem they strive to solve it as quickly and conveniently as possible, whether it's a clogged toilet or you need a bus plan to Amsterdam. The hotel is located in good surroundings with a lot of shops and a church nearby. The town itself is very quiet and idyllic. Perfect for a family visit!

Pros: Centrally located; comfortable; nice restaurant; rooms are efficient and updated; reasonable price, friendly ownership, good and easy wifi; excellent in room lighting Cons: breakfast a little on the weak side

Excellent rein deer dinner with many small litte extras and side dishes. Mashed potatoes and a little fried potatoe cake. Well composed wine sauce. Some green vegetables. All this with a nice selection of red wine. All in accordance with hehe rekommendation of waitress and chef. Thanks!

The location of this hotel in the heart of Raalte is perfect. We had a wonderful view of the big church that is towering next to it. The owners make you feel right at home. Super client friendly check-out process. The rooms on the third (and highest) floor get a bit warm in the summer when the windows were closed during the day. Perphaps screens could help to have the windows open without getting flies inside. We didn't understand the two levels in the floor of the breakfast room. The lower part was not used, a bit as storage for extra chairs and tables. The breakfast room could be made into one level, freeing up more space. The town of Raalte and this hotel are a perfect place to venture out to go and see attractions in nearby cities, like the Rijksmuseum Twenthe in Enschede and MORE (modern realism) in Gorssel. We enjoyed our stay in this town and hotel.

Rhis nice hotel in central Raalte , Holland has a good restaurant and a swimming pool and sauna. . Rooms adequate with kettle, for that morning cuppa although need ask for milk if like in your tea... . Steep stairs 'Dutch stylie' although is a lift..

This hotel was conveniently located in the center of town. The room was very, very clean, efficient, and the staff was accommodating. We recommend this hotel for business travelers and those who desire quietness.

Hotel de Zwaan is a nice average sort of place. It's very conveniently located with lots of parking and the staff is friendly, helpful and welcoming. The rooms and public spaces need a bit of sprucing up (beds and carpets) but are clean and comfortable. All in all, good for a short stay.

This is a rather small scaled business hotel in the center of Raalte. The staff were extremely friendly and I got a very large and comfortable room. The room was equipped with a bath and the room had a terrace overlooking the square. In the evening I went to the bar and was offered a free beer. I realy appreciated this nice gesture. I would certainly come back when I am in the region.
