For the perfect get-away-from-it-all destination- Parc Broekhuizen Hotel has it all. Set in the spectacular Utrechtse Heuvelrog National Park overlooking immaculate landscaped gardens, this historical building has been modernised to the highest standard and offers luxury accommodation, incredible gourmet food, world-class, attentive service, and plenty of activities in the beautiful surrounds. This is why Parc Broekhuizen Hotel has been chosen by the experts at Luxury Lifestyle Awards as a winner in the category of Best Luxury Hotel in the Netherlands for 2021.
The area is enshrined in history with the beautiful, natural area discovered by wealthy Amsterdam businessmen in the 12th century and becoming the location of many stylish second homes. The Broekhuizen estate is thought to date back to 1408 and has served as a knight’s city, country house and estate through history.
From 2012 the estate undertook a comprehensive restoration project and the hotel opened at the end of 2016. The aim was to balance the remaining historical details with modern design and art, creating a luxury hotel in a spectacular setting. Nature has always remained of paramount importance with large picture windows overlooking beautiful views from every space.
