Amersfoort (NL)/Lausanne (CH), 25 October 2007 – Golden Tulip is proud to announce the successful upgrade of Tulip Inn Garderen into a Golden Tulip hotel. The hotel was recently renovated, upgraded and re-branded to fit the four star room concept of Golden Tulip Hospitality.

In the course of 2007, the management of Tulip Inn Garderen, after operating the hotel as a three star hotel, became aware of the vast growing demand for more superior class accommodation by middle and upper management of companies situated in the Veluwe area. In order to keep up with guests’ demand Tulip Inn Garderen invested in upgrading both rooms and public areas to achieve the status of a four stars hotel.

Golden Tulip Garderen is situated in the middle of the forest of the Veluwe, just outside the picturesque village of Garderen. Golden Tulip Garderen offers 97 comfortable renovated rooms which confirm with four stars hotel standards. Six of the fifteen conference rooms are newly built and a new restaurant is at guests’ disposal.

Amongst other additions to Golden Tulip Garderen an outdoor swimming pool was built and as per November 1st a beauty salon will operate on site. A wellness with sauna, solarium and fitness centre will be opened on January 1st. Last but not least, a lodges’ area which consists of 50 cabins awaits travelers and hikers.

Mr. Hans Kennedie, President & CEO of Golden Tulip Hospitality, comments:”Upgrading Tulip Inn Garderen was a result of a growing demand amongst the hotels clients. We decided to change the standards and facilities to accommodate the clients’ needs.”
