Surely there should be such a place in the Netherlands?
We got to know each other in Groningen. In 2003 we got married and we have two daughters and a son. In 2010 we took a sabbatical and made a long journey to Hong Kong, Bali, Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia with our children. There we visited many special hotels. When we were in the middle of the rice paddies in Bali, we said to each other: 'Surely there should be such a place in the Netherlands? Our wish to run a hotel together got a new and very convincing impulse with this trip. We found that beautiful place, here in the beautiful nature of Twente. Not for nothing was the terrace of De Wilmersberg in 2013 proclaimed 'Most beautiful terrace in Overijssel'. Partly because of our unique location, sustainability is our top priority; in 2013 we achieved the Green Key Gold. This means that we have sustainable and socially involved business operations at the highest level.
