Wim van Dijk Room
Our dining room was named after antiques dealer and jeweller Wim van Dijk. For four years Wim has worked day and night to restore the building to its original state. The result is a grand and beautifully decorated building (it was built in the Neo-renaissance style, a style which is not seen very often in the Deventer architectural landscape). The dining room is beautifully decorated with ceiling paintings and murals from the 18th century. Also, the original doors from the 18th century were kept and reinstalled. Please note the beautiful details. The ornaments in the ceiling are mirrored in the flooring. By the way, Wim designed all the flooring, curtains and wall decorations himself.
In 1895 a chapel was added to the house, as well as several passageways. This part of the house was furnished as the house chapel of the Vermeer family. The chapel enabled the family to say their prayers at all times, despite their busy lifestyle. The chapel is a listed building and now serves as the reception of our hotel.
The neo-Gothic panelling was restored to its former glory. The fireplace, which we light on cold winter days to give you an extra warm welcome, is decorated with 16th century tiles. A saucy detail… The façade of our building reads ‘DEVS AVXIT’… God multiplies. We leave the interpretation of this little joke to you.
Via the reception you can enter our ‘Lounge’. This room is multifunctional. The lounge can be booked for small parties. As a guest you can use this room to sit and relax with a drink and a nice book. This room can also be booked for meetings.
Conservatory with terrace in our courtyard
Our ‘conservatory’ has many functions. The space is tastefully decorated and the glass dome in the ceiling makes it a very light and attractive space. The patio doors open up into the ‘courtyard’ with our enclosed terrace. The courtyard and terrace have beautiful authentic details. The old well and the mulberry tree of the Vermeer family have remained intact. You also have a beautiful view of the tower of the Lebuïns church.
The ‘conservatory’ is an excellent space for parties, seminars, weddings and meetings. A nice detail for our wedding couples is that the town hall of Deventer is situated only a few buildings away!
