    Completely overpriced- horrible breakfast!

    I booked this hotel because it said it has a spa including a sauna. This was a gift for my partner. The night was 150 euros excluding breakfast but because it was supposed to include the spa it seemed ok. When we arrived they told us that the sauna is not finished and that there’s only a pool. I had to pay 40 euros extra for breakfast which, to be honest is not very good. The tables were all dirty, nobody comes to clean then even if you ask for it. The food is not worth the price at all! I went to the reception to explain the fact that I booked the hotel only for the spa, and the woman at the reception said that I should read things better!! What type of comment is that??? I’ll never be back to this hotel... that is for sure! And I will never recommend it! They are Liers and they rip you off.

    Hotel is located just outside Leiden, on a convenient bus route to Leiden and The Hague. Short walk into a village with grocery store, cafes and shops. Great staff. Very comfortable!
