When I was in Holland recently for work, we stayed at the Hotel de Colse Hoeve. The rooms were a little sketchy…the hotel is built on old farm land, with farms on either side, so there are numerous bugs around, in the hallways and in the first room I was assigned to. I eventually moved and the next one was perfect. But as a stuck-up, pompous, city dude, fighting the bugs wasn’t my idea of a fun time at a hotel.
However, everything else was awesome. The staff was amazing, the restaurant right out of Top Chef and the location beautiful. The hotel itself was renovated from a very old farm house from 100+ years before (I believe) and was absolutely beautiful. This is a view of the long walk from the parking lot to the lobby entrance.
I’ll definitely never forgot my time in Holland (and Belgium) and still have quite a few photos I haven’t even shown yet on this blog. I plan on more down the road.
