Enjoy the “Achterhoekse” hospitality

At Hampshire Hotel – Avenarius you will be received by hospitable and extremely passionate employees. Which is just what you’d expect in the Achterhoek. This romantic hotel on the edge of the delightful village of Ruurlo is ideally situated for cycling lovers. In the immediate surroundings you can find various routes along farms, country estates, castles and through idyllic places such as Lochem and Vorden.

Its location by De Meene forest area and the hospitality make it ideal. And Hampshire Hotel – Avenarius has another plus point: its fantastic restaurant with internationally-oriented cuisine. You’re welcome here the whole day for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can also enjoy dinner in the hotel’s Tapasbar, with Spanish snacks and wines. Culinary enjoyment combined with “Achterhoekse” hospitality. It’s that simple.

Walking and cycling in a forest environment

The surroundings of Hampshire Hotel – Avenarius are just perfect for a weekend of walking and cycling. But there's lots more to do: Kasteel Ruurlo is just a few minutes’ walk away.

Culture and museums
In the village of Ruurlo you can enjoy picturesque streets, the village church dating from 1350, Agneta windmill from 1851 and the Cuyperskerk from 1871. The Achterhoeks Museum 1940-1945 is in Hengelo, with a collection that includes uniforms and implements from the Dutch, German and allied armed forces. For something totally different, the Dickens Museum in Bronkhorst portrays the life and works of Charles Dickens.

Doolhof Ruurlo is both historic and fun. With its high, green hedges it looks exactly how a maze should look. The largest amusement park in the Achterhoek is in Lievelde and is called Megapret; the perfect place for outdoor fun, indoor fun, water fun and golf fun for the entire family. In Het Land van Jan Klaassen in Braamt children can be pirates on a ship, do somersaults on the trampoline and take a train ride through gnome village.

The Lochemse Golf en Countryclub De Graafschap is some 10 kilometres from the hotel. You can play on the 18-hole golf course in the Achterhoek bocage landscape. Golfclub ’t Zelle is also ideal for a great day’s golfing on an 18-hole golf course. You can practise putting at the Golfclub ’t Lohr golf course.

Extensive dinner or enjoy Tapas

In the Hampshire Hotel – Avenarius restaurant you are welcome for an extensive breakfast (with home-made jam!), delicious lunch and extensive dinner. You can order à la carte or go for a menu. The internationally-oriented cuisine adapts to the seasons. Before settling down for dinner in the evening, we recommend starting in the Buffetzaal with drinks by the fireplace.

You’re familiar with the delicious Spanish snacks in earthenware bowls. At the Tapasbar you can order all the classics, hot and cold and with or without an Achterhoek twist. Such as shrimps in garlic sauce, Naegelholt tortilla from Ruurlo and antipasti with Iberico ham. When the weather's fine, you can also enjoy your Tapas outside on the terrace.

“Nice business hotel”

I have stayed there a couple of times on business. The rooms are spacious and clean. Beds are great and a good desk to work at. The best thing about the Hotel is restaurant. Fantastic meals and vine selection.

“Nice hotel, friendly staff, well located”

Stayed for one night. The room was clean and nice, the staff was welcoming and overall, the atmosphere was easy going. I didn't try the restaurant but the breakfast was good. The location is very good. However, as in many other hotels, sounds travel quite easily from the corridor to the room - so better bring earplugs. :) That would be the only drawback to my experience, otherwise all was good.

“Quaint and friendly”

This is a small inn in the village of Ruurlo. I came here and stayed for the better part of a week on a business trip. The hotel is very nice and clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel restaurant has some appetizing dishes. Worth staying at if you're in the area. The only downside is that the stores in town close very early (5 pm). So you're limited in what you can do locally.

“Super friendly staff, beautiful hotel & area”

Checked in for a long weekend at this hotel, it was a surprise weekend for my birthday and have to say, the staff really went out of their way to make us feel very very welcome. It's the small gestures that count, from a heartfelt welcome, big smile and handshake at the reception, to a present in the room and a dessert with sparkles for my birthday in their excellent restaurant - one word - GREAT! Beautiful room, great area and lovely to cycle and relax. We will return! Once again, the staff could not be friendlier it made our stay very memorable . Mark & Frank
