bitter en zoet ***
Experience the Historical atmosphere with the comfort of modern times

Due to the measures announced by the government in connection with the Corona virus, both the hotel and restaurant will be closed until April 6, 2020. 

We are available by phone and/or e-mail for reservations and for any further information.

As from April 6th, we hope doors will be open again, to wish you a warm welcome at Hotel Restaurant Bitter en Zoet again!



You’ve come to a unique hotel in Drenthe. The former service residences 'Toewijding', 'Bitter en Zoet' and 'Plichtgevoel' comprise 15 special hotel rooms. The layout of the original rooms has remained intact and creates a friendly, homely feeling. Each house has its own colour scheme and unique wallpaper, based on the old wallpaper of these residences. Everywhere you look, you can see the original use of the buildings: a terrazzo sink in the bathroom, an old front door next to your room door, rooms with en suite doors, a fireplace. All our rooms have a beautiful view of the (vegetable) garden and the majestic beech avenue.

Bitter en Zoet also has 6 spacious family rooms / apartments.
These are housed in the former hospital ‘Vertrouw op God’. 

We have also thought of our disabled guests, for example, there are adapted hotel rooms and the family rooms are also wheelchair accessible.

At Bitter en Zoet you can relax all you want. We have a traditional Finnish sauna, infrared sauna (short wave) with color and light therapies and an infrared sauna (middle to long wave) with daylight and color therapy. 

After the sauna it's time to cool off. You can do that underneath the rain shower or a bit more careful under the regular shower. For the ultimate relaxation you can pick a place on one of the couches in the relax room or outside in the sun.  

The sauna is for private use for about 2,5 hours. Of course with enough water to hydrate and some treats.
