The former old town hall in the historic Burgdorf Kessel in the heart of the Dutch province is located directly on the river Maas. Het Raadhuys combines design and comfort with the charm of a small bed and breakfast. Here you can have breakfast, or even better: lie in bed with a direct view of the Meuse.
Following the renovation by architect Kim Peeters, who is also the hosts’ daughter, four individual guest rooms have been created on the first floor of the old house. The rooms are named after their original functions – there is the archive room, secretary’s room, mayor’s room and messenger’s room – and the interior refers to each room’s former use. One wall of the archive room, for example, is papered with old magazines. The former room structure is recognizable in all rooms, and modern comfort meets Scandinavian and industrial design elements everywhere.
In addition to the private areas, there are various lounges that can be used by all guests: In the reception room, the “Ontvangstkamer”, breakfast is served in the morning, in the afternoon and evening it serves as a living room where you can read a book in peace, meet up with other guests or simply enjoy the view of the market square and the Meuse. The lounge room, the “Loungekamer”, is directly adjacent to the building’s preserved old arched vaults, making it a particularly charming retreat. From here you have direct access to the outside terrace garden: Sitting in the lounge corner under the trees, you have a view of the river at any time of day (and night).
The premises can also be used for business events.
The immediate surroundings are ideal for a variety of hikes and cycling or (e-)mountain bike tours. De Keverberg Castle and several restaurants, cafés and bars in the old village center are within walking distance. Excursions to the nearby cities of Venlo, Roermond or Maastricht are also possible. Even if you will definitely be looking forward to the peace and quiet of Raadhuys afterwards – and the view of the Meuse.
What to do
Whether hiking, cycling or excursions to cities such as Venlo, Roermond or Maastricht - the area surrounding the Raadhuys is ideal for a wide range of activities in the region. E-bikes can be charged directly at the hotel.
