Hotel Groot Welsden opened its doors on the 9th of May 1991. This former guest house had been closed for a while, when eight friends decided to join forces and bring it back to life. All 23 rooms were booked on the day of the opening. Extensive renovations took place through the years, to keep up with increasing requirements. On this day, the hotel has 14 tastefully decorated double rooms, some of them equipped with a whirlpool bath.
The English style, which characterizes the hotel, is implemented throughout, as you can see in the beautifully decorated lounge, which feels like a cosy living room. Our beautiful sheltered garden has sun loungers set up around the fountain (there used to be a pond with ducks) and for many years is seen as a valuable addition to a successful stay.
Five of the eight friends are still involved in the hotel today, either in front of or behind the scenes.
Over the years the three-star hotel has built quite a name for itself and is well-known internationally. Numerous guests from all over the world have a deep affection for Hotel Groot Welsden and share their appreciation on the many review sites worldwide (Zoover, De nationale Horeca Prijzen, Eropuit in eigen Land, TripAdvisor, Trivago, Booking.com, Hotels.com, Expedia, HRS).
For almost 30 years, visiting Hotel Groot Welsden ‘feels like coming home every time’ for many of our guests.
