Lunch and dinner are not served in the hotel, but every morning a lavish breakfast with champagne, cappuccino, latte macchiato, espresso and fresh fruit juice is laid out for you. It is hardly possible to have a better start to the day.

The hotel’s bar, The Bowler, has a trendy interior combined with stylish muted lighting and restful music, creating a relaxed ambiance. The origin of the bar’s name, The Bowler, is soon obvious. Pictures of famous people, all wearing bowler hats, adorn the walls. Even the wall lamps are shaped like bowler hats. It is the ideal place to lounge in one of the comfortable chairs and enjoy a drink.
