Fletcher Hotel-Restaurant Stadspark4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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.
I was excited to stay at a wellness spa hotel during a 10 day visit for the holidays to see friends and family, but also for some much needed R&R. The hotel restaurant and room service are laughable, with unaccommodating hours, they refused to offer room service past 9PM! The breakfast buffet was bland at best, with baked beans, bacon or sausage and a choice of boiled eggs or scrambled and heavily-diluted egg substitute... gross! As a health spa I was expecting oatmeal or other healthy type of food offerings, but needless to say, there was nothing health conscious about their breakfast spread, instead carb-laden breads and a variety of fatty cheeses. I would have loved to see fresh vegetable and fruit juices or a smoothie option for drinks, as well as some gluten-free or carb-friendly and high protein breakfast options... or at the least offer an a la carte option for those patrons that are picky about what they eat and would like to purchase items that are not part of the breakfast buffet. I did make several requests to the waitstaff for scrambled egg whites or two fried eggs cooked to medium hard, and every time they were surprised to hear my request as if I were asking for a tire change at a restaurant (face palm)! The spa... omg, that experience was entirely ironic... the most uncomfortable session. Granted, I am 5 months pregnant, by are you seriously going to ask me to lay on my side on the massage table for an hour without a pillow!!! Oh, you mean I have the entire comfort of my left arm to rest my head on while you massage my right side! I am a member of a massage spa, I get massages every two weeks, I extremely knowledgeable, I get massages at every resort/hotel (if available) when I travel, and this was far from being professional, it was awkward and uncomfortable. And having the male masseuse in the room while I got down to my thong was the most unorthodox, even when I said to him that I needed to change, all he did was look upward to the right and put up a bath towel between us!!!! That should have been my cue that this place was WONKY! I probably should have started this with a disclaimer: Yes, I'm American. Yes, I am a frequent traveler and considered to have high expectations. Yes, I expect rest and relaxation from staying at a health & wellness resort...especially from massage sessions. P.S. the hydrotherapy spa is nude-only...
Good hotel with slightly dated rooms but the welness adds positively to the experience. The hotel is located within walking distance of the city centre and the lakes. Breakfast is goid and varied. So if you can stay at a discounted price, it can be a nice wellness break.
Nice place to stay, 15 minutes walking from the city-center. The "luxury-room" was fine, the bath is a jacuzzi (with holes for air-blowing) but is not a jacuzzi (desactivated ?). The spa/welness center is naturist, providing you with towels and bathrobes to take out as you enter the pool or sauna (not well explained on the website)
