Nice place for diner and good breakfast in the morning. Rooms are not big but comfortable in a quiet park. For sure in the summer nice place for a walk and also a place for taking a walk. Also for kids.

A very cosy hotel with excellent ambience in the midst of wooded surroundings. The reception was very friendly and ready to assist . Even the parking was not a problem while an additional temporary area was made available at short notice.

Misleading description. There are no hotel rooms in the kasteel or the coach house, instead the rooms are in a 1980's annexe, full of bricks and cheap furnishings. Our room had a view of a hedge. The description also says" top hit with families" There are no family rooms and you are forced to pay for 2 rooms because none...

located quiet in the park of Kasteel Landgoed Oud-Poelgeest,The hotel and restaurant in the premices. Average comfort. We had to wait very long untill the ordered dinner was served. Because of parking cars: You need rooms at the 1. floor

The hotel is beautifully situated in a wood near Leiden. Although primarily for conference participants, we (my wife and I) found the hotel welcoming and cosy. We had a nice dinner, and breakfast was also excellent. The rooms (in a modern annexe, not the grand house!) are relatively small, but clean and quiet. For the price it is excellent value.

lovely place to stay - nice surroundings; highly recommended. (Only down side was that the room had a sky light; which made the day light come in a bit too early to my liking). The staff was very friendly and it's really a lovely place for a stay
