Dutch hotel | In the beautiful province Drenthe
You might think that we used to be an old abbey. That is not the case. We are a themed hotel and inspired by an abbey in the south of the Netherlands: Abdij Koningshoeven. Here one of the few Trappist beers in The Netherlands are brewed by monks, that beer is La Trappe. Our hotel has the looks of an abbey but has not been an abbey itself. When the owner took over the hotel from his parents, he wanted to make it a themed hotel. At the end of the year 1997, he traveled with his dad (the former owner) to the abbey and had a tour from one of the monks. This monk told them all about the values of the monks, and this led to the owner being so inspired that he wanted to use that theme. The monk gave him a stained glass as first building block and that was the start of Abdij de Westerburcht.
What makes this Dutch hotel different than other Dutch hotels, are the rooms. Usually when you visit a hotel, most rooms look the same. That is not the case at our property. Just like our hotel, our rooms are themed as well. What is exciting is that the themes are very different from each other. We have rooms with the abbey theme, but also rooms with more active themes. You can think of the WILDLANDS Adventure Zoo theme, TT Circuit, a golf room but also beauty & wellness rooms with sunshowers! For whom also likes wellness, we also have rooms with a terrace and a private sauna! Our rooms are so comfortable, that you do not even need to leave the hotel to have a pleasant stay.
We love food and drinks and especially the combination. That is why we have a nice restaurant and big terrace where our guests can enjoy their beverages. The advantage of our terrace is that we have multiple heaters to keep you warm, also in the evenings. That way you can perhaps eat dinner outside and look at the Dutch sun set. In our restaurant we have an extensive menu, where we try to use as many regional products as possible. Our cooks even have an organic garden, with products such as vegetables and herbs. These products are used in the preparation of the dishes. We also have an extensive beer and wine menu and offer several highs: high tea, high coffee, high beer, high wine, and even a high cocktail.
We are in the middle of the province Drenthe. Drenthe is known for its beautiful nature and also for the huge amount of cycle paths. There are also a lot of forests here, when you leave our parking lot you can be in the forest in less than a minute. We are also in the center of Westerbork, a fun village where a lot is happening. Next to that, there are also a lot of restaurants and little shops. Do you want to visit a city? You can go to Emmen, Assen, Hoogeveen and even Groningen is half an hour away.
