Bovendonk

If you are looking for somewhere unique and inexpensive to stay overnight in breathtakingly historic surroundings, Hotel Bovendonk is the perfect place.

The listed building with its authentic library attracts mostly couples, retired people and those who want to contribute to the preservation of its heritage. Any profits made are reinvested in the building. That this can come as a surprise is evident in the reaction of a previous guest: “A beautiful building with a wonderful ambiance. (…) Going back in time. Television and wifi work well, but almost extra-terrestrial in such beautiful surroundings.”

If you are looking for somewhere unique and inexpensive to stay overnight in breathtakingly historic surroundings, Hotel Bovendonk is the perfect place. The high Gothic ceilings, stained glass windows, Latin texts and the beautiful chapel in the delightful courtyard are typical of the hotel. The listed building with its authentic library attracts mostly couples, retired people and those who want to contribute to the preservation of its heritage. Any profits made are reinvested in the building. That this can come as a surprise is evident in the reaction of a previous guest: “A beautiful building with a wonderful ambiance. (…) Going back in time. Television and wifi work well, but almost extra-terrestrial in such beautiful surroundings.”

History and architecture
You can learn all about the rich history of this historic property during a guided tour. The similarities between Bovendonk and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam are apparent; not surprisingly as both buildings were designed by the same architect: Pierre Cuypers.

Activities
The hotel welcomes cyclists and walkers. The Fietsvierdaagse Hoeven, one of the largest four day cycling events in the Netherlands starts and finishes at Bovendonk. Those two recharging points for electric bikes therefore come in very handy. Musical performances, various activities and events of interest are organised in the courtyard. If you want to enjoy the culinary flavours in Hoeven or the surroundings, Bovendonk is the perfect base. The Basilica of Saints Agatha and Barbara in Oudenboschligt is just four kilometres away. You can take the Parelpad (Pearl Path) and wander past this smaller version of St Peter’s Basilica in Rome and other religious artefacts in Oudenbosch. And when you get back you can enjoy a healthy lunch, an intimate dinner or a pleasant drink in the Brasserie.

Accessibility
This three star hotel and conference centre - with a Golden Green Key Certificate – offers about 150 free parking spaces. Come and enjoy the magical ambiance and be inspired by the old seminary where to this day you can still follow a part-time training to become a priest…
