After riding 10 hours to get to assen for the motogp with a miss firing bike the hotel was a site for sore eyes! but when we got in to our room it was something else! the beds were huge and extremely comfy the bathrooms where spotless and a huge bath was just what was needed!

Used the hotel as a base for the Assen Youth Cycling Tour.
Very convenient as it was right next to where the event was based.
Hotel exceeded our expectations and proved to be an excellent choice.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The air con worked well and was well used especially as the weather was hot all week.
Had free WiFi which was very useful and seemed to work without any problems.
Had access to the swimming pool and other sports facilities included in our room price which again was well used especially after a full days cycle racing.
The buffet breakfast was good with plenty to choose from. Had no issues with the coffee machines as mentioned in other reviews.
Had a couple if meals in the steakhouse which were also very good.
Enjoyed our stay and plan to go back again for next years tour.
They also never objected to keeping the bikes in the rooms. Very cyclist friendly.
Loved the location in Assen -- right in the center of town. But it was very hot outside, and apparently only some of the rooms have air conditioning. We weren't in one of those rooms. It felt very hot in the hallway upon exiting the elevator. Then we went in our room, which had a stand-up fan waiting for us. The fan just moved the hot air around. Then when we went back into the hallway, the hallway actually felt cool. So after exploring the city, which left us feeling really hot because of the warm weather, we were never able to cool down, especially not in our room. In talking to Housekeeping, even the rooms on other side of hallway were way less hot.
Also, there was a set of earplugs on each nightstand. Then around 9pm we found out why they were there. Directly below our window (which we had to open at night to try to cool it down a little) they sort through the garbage and toss glass into another container, so you hear glass crash for quite a while. Interesting. Didn't use earplugs cause it was hard to sleep anyway due to the heat, so this actually wasn't so horrible.
Overall, I don't recommend this place if there is a possibility it will be hot outside while you're there. But if I return and I know it will be cool weather, I would stay here again because of its great location, and there aren't a lot of hotel choices anyway. The restaurant is great.
