Sleep like royalty: Bilderberg Château Holtmühle
Bilderberg Chateau Holtmühle is a medieval castle that is located in the village of Tegelen in the Netherlands. Here you will find all the luxury facilities for a pampering weekend. Burgundian enjoyment and tranquility go effortlessly with the luxury and grandeur of this four star hotel. If you’re looking for a place to stay in Limburg, The Netherlands, stop looking further, and just book this castle.
In this article I will tell you why I enjoyed staying at the Bilderberg Château Holtmühle. Hopefully this information helps you to better decide on an accommodation in Limburg, the Netherlands.
Bilderberg Chateau Holtmühle is located in Tegelen in the province of Limburg, the southernmost of the 12 provinces of the Netherlands. This province is known for its vast landscapes, green forests and endless fields. Tegelen is a city district of the municipality of Venlo. The surroundings offer several picturesque villages, hills, abbeys and monasteries which are perfect for a lovely walk or cycling trip.
The towns of Venlo, Roermond and Maastricht are perfect for a day trip from Tegelen. The village of Arcen, with its Castle Gardens and the Hertog Jan beer brewery is also well worth a visit and not that far away from the hotel.
There is a free car park available on the site.
The 66 rooms of Bilderberg Chateau Holtmühle are located in the pond wing or in the castle. Some of them are modern and luxurious and others are more authentic. All rooms are equipped with a television, telephone, coffee and tea making facilities, refrigerator, airconditioning, and a bathroom with a bath and/or shower, hairdryer, and toilet. All rooms have free Wi-Fi.
I’ve stayed in a superior room (right on the picture below). The room was large which was very nice, but very dated, especially the bathroom. The carpet was dirty. The bed was very comfortable.
The food at Bilderberg Chateau Holtmühle was amazing. The hotel has two restaurants (‘Die Alde Heerlickheijt’ and ‘d’Orangerie’) of which one is located in the cellar vaults of the castle. The kitchen mainly works with local products and has its own herb garden on the estate. The service during breakfast and dinner was excellent! I really had the feeling that they wanted to give me a nice stay, which was very successful.
You can enjoy an extensive breakfast buffet from 07:00 until 10:00 on weekdays, and from 08:00 until 10:30 on weekends. There is a variety of house-made breads and rolls, croissants, baked pastries, pancakes, eggs, local and imported cheeses and meat, freshly slides fruit, selection of cereals and much more!
Lunch is served in the lounge on Monday to Friday from 12:30 until 14:00.
The dinner was sensational. The cuisine is mainly French with Asian influences, all prepared using fresh ingredients from the fertile soil of North Limburg. Dinner is served daily in the restaurant between 18:00 and 21:30. I had a 4-course dinner with Tuna tartar as a starter, risotto with red beets and old cheese as an appetizer, halibut (flatfish) with cockles and Limburgse mustard as the main course and as dessert, kiwi with white chocolate. Of course, the hotel also served an appetizer in advance, something with cucumber is all I remember haha!
Due to the limited number of tables, it is recommended to make a reservation in advance for lunch and dinner.
For some relaxation, you can visit the sauna, indoor swimming pool or Turkish steam bath. When you go upstairs in the hallway to the sauna, you can find a ping pong table, a sjoelbak (see video below) and table football.
Would you rather be active? Then you can indulge yourself in free fitness. Bicycles can be rented from April to September.
The castle gardens and ponds are a charming sight. If weather permits, you can make use of the chic terraces by the castle moat. You can also enjoy a good glass at the fireplace in the bar and lounge.
The price per night is € 166,- when you’re staying with two persons in a superior room (breakfast included). A bit pricey, but definitely worth it. The cheapest room available is around € 100,00 per night. You can book a stay directly at the website of the hotel or through Booking.com.
