Do you wish to sleep in a monastery, dine in a marl cave or hold a conference in a castle’s salon? At the four authentic estates of Oostwegel Collection, a royal welcome in a unique setting awaits you. In their three hotels, eight restaurants and three bars, inspiration, hospitality and craftsmanship go hand in hand.
“Although all our properties are located in the region of South Limburg, the Netherlands, they tell very different stories,” says Camille Oostwegel jr., the young hospitality prodigy who is succeeding his father in the family business. “Winselerhof is a picturesque, rustic manor farm while Château Neercanne is an elegant castle with a breath-taking garden and an adjoining marl cave.” The latest addition to the Oostwegel Collection, the Kruisherenhotel Maastricht, on the other hand, is a five-star hotel and restaurant in the remains of a gothic monastery in the city centre.
Although the level of quality and hospitality has remained constant throughout its 40-year history, Oostwegel Collection does not fear improvement and innovation. By placing the experiences of both guests and staff at the heart, they manage to constantly improve and expand their facilities. At their biggest location, Château St. Gerlach, they have recently constructed the St. Gerlach Pavilion: a state-of-the-art congress centre with three multifunctional meeting rooms, that can be used separately and combined. Businesses who organise their event or meeting in this complex can combine it with experiences at other Oostwegel Collection locations as well. After a day of work in the castle’s shadow, a gala dinner in the caves might be an unforgettable twist. “Our biggest aim is to create valuable memories for our guests. Whether you come for a business event or for a romantic weekend away, your time at Oostwegel Collection will surely leave a lasting impression.”
