...Room quality excellent. Pool an appreciated extra. This area is surprisingly quiet and cycling tracks are excellent. Much enjoyed out trip to the Netherlands again. This particular tour was a repeat...


...The level of comfort, quality of food and friendliness of staff were excellent. The visit to the Kruellermueller Museum and park on a non cycling day was excellent and well worth a visit... 


...Thanks for your e-mail. We had a great week.  We enjoyed the cycling very much. The hotel was very good. The bicycle were very comfortable and the front bag with the place for the map was a very useful. The Knooppunt system proved to be very very good and easy for navigating the route...



...We had a lovely time thank you. We enjoyed the cycling and the hotel. It was very nice and friendly and obliging staff. Our bikes were fine. Just to let u know as a feedback and not a criticism: One bike, Gear 1 was not working , although the terrain is so flat mostly , we did not need it. One bike had no water bottle holder. Everything else was very good and we hope to use it again next time we plan our cycling holiday...
