Recent guest reviews
The room was nothing special, but I enjoyed my meal in the restaurant. I was surprised by the good selection of wines available per glass and one of the waiters even produced a 20 year old tawny which wasn't on the menu for my cheese desert. A mobile payment terminal for the restaurant and bar would be useful though (aren't these things more or less standard these days?) as I wasn't asked and had forgotten to pre-authorise my creditcard on check-in.
No swimsuits are allowed in the spa area There was no mention about this in hotel’s website and I’m sorry, but I didn’t know that it’s completely normal in the Netherlands. We had included the spa in our reservation and when the receptionist told us that you must be naked in the spa area, it was a huge surprise. So, if there’s someone who doesn’t know that already, you’re welcome. The food in the restaurant was good and so was the room.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms were extremely tidy and spacious. Plenty of free parking and well situated. Breakfast was good but a little pricey. I will deffinately be staying here again and highly recommend this hotel.
Mixture of old and refurbished rooms await - not sure €30 a night extra for the refurbished rooms is worth it. Large car park. Service in the bar and restaurant area was poor/slow. 15 minute walk in to the centre of Bergen op Zoom offered a good choice of restaurants. Pool downstairs, although allegedly naked swimming - did not investigste too far!
Persuaded by friends to return to this hotel. Decided to book an upgraded room because we were disappointed last time with our room. Disappointed again this time. The check in was an improvement. The room was larger but the bathroom door was frosted glass with the word bathroom written down the door but the letters were clear. Do not really want to see someone or be seen using the toilet. Also because it is glass it does not seal the room so noise/smell enter the room. If you get up in the night to use the toilet the light shines into the room and your partner is disturbed. Our room was affected by traffic noise so closed the window and switched on the aircon. Not a good idea as I laid in bed with cold air blowing on me with no way of redirecting the draft. So back to open window and traffic noise.
When you arrive the bar and restaurant look very nice (although dark!) but the rooms are very disappointing. The comfort rooms are like stepping back in time as so dated and horrible, also not the cleanest. They have better rooms which are nicer but the colour theme is brown so very dark, walls are knocked and scratched and stains on the carpets in the hallways. Staff are pleasant and breakfast is good.
Verry negative. Reception ok, immediate payment required now we know why We had a room in the older part Bed beyond any standard, bathroom functional at best but dated. AC minimal, paper cups,no aminitys. Cleanlyness not optimal. Tv had limited supply for international guests. No minibar.? Four stars? Fire alarm, no recognisionble helpers at this event. No excuses Breakfast acceptabele, nothing fancy Spa only for nudes, could have told before. Also swimmingpool not included. Bar has excellent choice of beers, but no waitress willing to serve. After 11 minutes we left. Yes we know that there were 2 other guests. Hospitality sub zero. Also our key had to be recharged, earlier complaint other guest.
It is hard to know where to start with this review, but had we not arrived late on a Sunday evening i would have refused to pay and found somewhere else to stay. The hotel is rated as a 4 star but it is actually 2 hotels in one, as the one half is the original hotel and the other part is the more recently built part with the wellness spa (More of which later!) The rooms in the new part of the hotel are nice enough however the rooms in the old part are terrible, they describe them as "Comfort" rooms but only if your idea of comfort means absolutely awful. The 1970's style furniture is so old that the wood varnish is all badly faded and is covered in scratches and even ancient burn marks from cigarettes left on the edge. The tea and coffee making facilities are a nespresso machine with just 2 generic unidentified pods and cheap thin paper cups to drink out of. The general decor and bathroom reminded me of a cheap B&B type accomodation and was really shabby and worn, even down to a picture hook on the wall with no picture on it. However the biggest shock came when we went down to the wellness spa, as it transpired that this operated a strict naturist policy and that swimming costumes were not allowed. I was told that this was made clear on the hotel website, however when i checked this it only had a single mention right at the very end of the long list of details of the opening hours and treatments available, long after most people would have stopped reading. For such an extreme policy that would appeal to only a few people it would have seemed only right that the hotel made a much bigger mention of this policy and really should have made this the very first thing they told you about the spa, rather that a small afterthought. In summary i would say that this hotel is only suitable if you pay the extra for a room in the actual 4 star hotel and if you are inclined towards public nudity. Otherwise stay somewhere else, in fact anywhere else other than here!
The rooms, reception and the atmosphere represent really solid 4 stars. If a Dutch hotel deserves 4 stars, it is Fletcher Stadspark. The room, bathroom was fresh and very clean. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful (in Holland I have had different experiences of 4* and more expensive houses). The parking (free of charge) outside is close to the entrance and very spaceous which is nice to have. The kitchen was open until 21:30. This was, probably, the only negative point to mention: at 21:35 no warm meal was available >> this needs to be respected and a certain discipline is required from the guests' side. If you are late and hungry, there seems to be no restaurants as alternative next to the hotel. Clear recommendation from my side, especially if you are on buisiness: very convenient and pleasant stay experience.
The Fletcher is a situated on the southern side of Bergin Op Zoom and can be walked to from the train station. The reception is pleasant and staff helpful and friendly. The room I got was satisfactory but I would describe the bathroom as small and below standard. One item was that the bath is very slippy when you are showering and there is no bath matt. TV was large, room was quiet, the only gripe here was the lift has a bell notification that can be heard far and wide and there really is no need. Restaurant is very nice with a simple but classy menu. It is good for one or two nights on business.
