The country estate of hotel Heerlickheijd van Ermelo is situated in the middle of the woody region of the northern Veluwe. Our comfortable and stylish hotel is an ideal stopping place from where you can discover the magnificent and varied surroundings.

In the immediate vicinity the variety of the Veluwe nature welcomes you: the Veluwe woods, the Veluwe beach and the Lake Veluwe. Or are you more of a lover of culture?

In that case you can indulge yourself in towns such as Amersfoort, Zwolle and Harderwijk. In the area there are dozens of picturesque villages, eminently suitable for exploratory trips.

Would you like an outing with your children? There is plenty of scope for that not far from the hotel. Less than 10 km away there is Harderwijk with its famous dolphinarium, where you can actually stroke a shark! A little further on, there are some fantastic attractions to be visited. In Amersfoort you will find the zoo ‘Dierenpark Amersfoort’ and in Biddinghuizen you can visit ‘Walibi World’: the ‘Rollercoaster Capital’ of Europe! We are convinced your children will be enthusiastic. And you, too!

The hotel, too, is a nice place to be. For instance, in our Brasserie: here you can have a delicious dinner or, in summer, enjoy the sunshine and a good glass of wine on the terrace. Besides, our hotel houses a swimming pool, sauna and fitness room, where you can relax. And, if you want relax completely our Beauty Centre may well be the answer. Enjoy the various restful and caring treatments and feel rejuvenated!

There are plenty of pleasant places in the hotel where you can withdraw. How about the library, laid out in English style? You will feel at home straightaway. The luxurious armchairs will invite you to sit down with a book from the collection and think of nothing else for a while. We will be happy to bring you your drink while you enjoy the warmth of the open fire. And, if you like a livelier environment, our bartender will welcome you in his province: the Sports Bar Down Under.

As you see: an inspiring location for delightful outings and a perfect starting point for a relaxed stay

Enjoy your stay in Heerlickheijd van Ermelo.
