Willibrordhaeghe - main building with entrance
The hotel is situated in a former monastery, which was rebuilt on this place after the devastation of another mission house during World War II. Willibrordhaeghe was officially the St. Willibrord mission house, the former seminary of the SVD priests, who are also known as the Missionaries of Steyl.
Numbers of trainees for the priesthood declined more and more and the building became much too large for that purpose.
After a restoration Willibrordhaeghe was reopened in 2004 and nowadays is a modern four star hotel, which still offers extensive conference facilities. During our stay we met different kind of people in the hotel: businessmen on a conference, a group of students on a summer course, wedding parties and ‘normal’ tourists like us.
The interior of the building is a mixture of modern decoration with some historical elements, but we always were impressed by the serenity and special atmosphere. Our room was very spacious with all modern amenities, but without a balcony (ever seen a monastery with balconies ?). It is possible to rent a bicycle at the hotel to discover to area around Deurne.
The hotel has a large courtyard, a nice lounge, bar, restaurant (with a terrace) and a fitness room. Breakfast was really perfect. The staff - everybody, everywhere and always - was very helpful and friendly.
The buildings are surrounded by a landscape park.
Unique Qualities: When we made our reservation, the receptionist referred to a booking site (www.hotelspecials.nl) because it offered a cheaper rate. Finally we decided for one of the deals from the hotel.
Address: Vlierdenseweg 109, 5753 AC Deurne
Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: About 2 km's from the centre of Deurne; 1 1/2 km's from the railway stattion.
