We booked two rooms in the tower. The accommodation consisted of two bedrooms, each with a four poster bed (consisting of two singles pushed together). One bedroom had a private ensuite bathroom leading directly off the bedroom (a shower, no bath). The other bedroom (red canopy bed) had an ensuite with a Jacuzzi bath and a shower. You accessed this bathroom via a corridor, directly leading to and from the bedroom. The corridor was lockable. The bathrooms were very clean with towels, hand-soap and a sachet of shampoo provided. There was also a hairdryer. Both bedrooms (including the one via the corridor) led directly to a lounge area consisting of sofas, chairs, bookcases, some games and a set of steps that led up to a ‘look out’ area within the tower. Off the lounge area were two locked doors (we presumed these were other guest bedrooms, but cannot confirm this). If you stay in this property, you may need to share the lounge area with other guests (if they were staying). No-one else stayed while we were there. The entire floor (or rooms) was accessed by a set of very steep stone, spiral stairs. No lift was available. This was not a problem as we could cope with the climb. The door at the base of the stone stairs was never locked, nor was the door at the top into the guest lounge area. Bedrooms could be locked however. The cellar kitchen was accessed from outside the courtyard. The door led from the courtyard directly down to some more wooden steps, and into the kitchen. The kitchen consisted of a very large table and chairs, a sink, a fridge, a microwave, a dishwasher and a range-style cooker. There were plenty of cups, saucers, plates, cutlery and cooking utensils. From the kitchen and the base of the stone staircase, you could access various rooms in the castle. These were for castle visitors, not for guests use. The whole cellar area was filled with plastic/pretend food, as if it was a museum. There were no room guides or information. We were free to explore parts of the castle. There was no TV or radio (as stated). Wi-Fi was available in the cellar kitchen only, not in the guest rooms. The furniture was period style and old, as expected in a castle. but most of it was very shabby, stained and dusty. It was described as ‘luxurious’ on the website. It was in style and design, but not in cleanliness. On arrival, the restaurant and castle was closed. The castle opened on a Wednesday from 11am-5pm. It was closed on Monday and Tuesday when we were there. It was difficult to work out where to greet the owner on arrival, as instructions said to go to the restaurant. This was closed. There was no welcome drink on arrival. When the restaurant and castle were open on Wednesday, members of the public were free to wander around by themselves. The guest ‘lounge area’ was...

Karin was extremely welcoming and we felt very much that she wanted us to treat it as home. It's a very impressive place (open to the public for paid entry) and we felt honored to be there after hours. She has gone to great lengths to restore the castle and whilst we were there an army of garnders were working in the well kept grounds. We hired bikes locally and cycled part of the well signposted "8 castle route" which is highly recommended.

Kastel Vorden isone of a kind venue in the middle of a very cosy countryside of East Holland. Very well maintained castle with stunning surroundings worth visiting especially decorated with myriades of Beautiful flowers and blossoming trees. Worth seeing and trying is also the nice and cosy restaurant besides the castle. Finally what would be a fantastic venue without passionate people like our hosts? And we found them there too! A must do!!

I stayed at the castle on my own for two nights in August. It was a wonderfully peaceful and atmospheric expereince. My room was extremly comfortable and I was able to come and go as I pleased. The castle, it's grounds and the surrounding area, are stunning. I spent the weekend walking and cycling around the woodland tracks and small rounds of this area of NL - it was beautiful. Karin prepared a delicious breakfast served at the adjoining castle cafe. It's great to take your time in savour the tastes and the surroundings of this rustic and homely eating area. I am planning to visit the castle again with friends. It will be a perfect place for my girlfriends and I, to stay; an ideal venue for relaxation, chatter and country walks.

I have lived my whole live to own my own castle and since 2004, I am the proud owner of the Castle of Vorden. I have refurbished it back to the old style including its furniture. I love to see other castles and antiques like paintings, etc..
