Hotel and restaurant Niven’s unique location is on the banks of the river ‘De Vliet’ and on a golf course. Wonderfully tranquil near the city of The Hague. The former farm from the beginning of the 20th century consists of a main building and two smaller annexes.
The entrance, the restaurant and the bar are in the earlier section which originally was the farmhouse. The relaxed ambience of the one-star restaurant is enhanced by sizeable paintings by Jurjen de Haan on the walls. Niven’s international cuisine is prepared by a veritable ‘veggie chef’. He prefers to source his vegetables close by from the Westland area. Niven’s refreshing view on vegetable preparation won the restaurant the award of ‘Best Vegetable Restaurant of The Netherlands 2013’.
The two guest rooms are located in the annexe. The rooms have a crisp interior and 2 French doors opening to a private terrace. Both rooms offer enticing views of the second hole of the Rijswijkse Golf Club. A good night’s sleep is assured.
Niven Kunz was once the youngest chef ever to be chosen promising chef of the year. He certainly fulfilled this promise. He earned 1 Michelin star and 15 points GaultMillau. Niven created a tranquil atmosphere in his restaurant, which is situated in the old farm’s barn. The tables are stylishly laid and large paintings by Jurjen de Haan adorn the walls. One of the outbuildings, the Wine Chamber, is used for food and wine tastings and for private dining. Meeting facilities for up to 10 persons also possible. Niven is a real ‘greens chef’. This gave the restaurant the title ‘Best Vegetable restaurant of The Netherlands 2013’.
Both bedrooms have a patio terrace and overlook the 2nd hole of the Rijswijk Golfclub.
Before or after dinner, why not sit back and relax in a comfortable chair and enjoy a leisurely drink in the restaurant’s lounge room.
Scheveningen beach is less than 30 mins away. The cities of The Hague and Delft are nearby. The Mauritshuis Museum in The Hague is famous also for its Rembrandt, Steen and Vermeer paintings. Rembrandt’s Anatomic Lesson and Vermeer’s The Girl with the Pearl Earring surely don’t need a recommendation.
