Detailed review by NienhuisE
Because this hotel is situated near the highway between Rotterdam and Utrecht it's a perfect location for having a business lunch when I travel by car. When I have to make a lunch appointment and I'm near Gouda I prefer two locations and the restaurant of Campanile is one of them. The hotel is easy to find and you can see it already when driving on the highway exit 11 at highway A12.
The entrance can be reached by crossing a small wooden bridge where you will find the private parking. When you enter the (small) lobby you will see the front desk with on your left side a lounge and the entrance to the restaurant which gives space for around 50 people. On the right you will find the door which leads to the rooms. After talking with the friendly ladies behind the front desk you are allowed to choose a table in the restaurant.
When you are settled the staff will arrive with the menu cart and ask if you want something to drink. When looking at the cart there is not much choice on the lunch menu but because I like the typical Dutch omelet with cheese, I won't need a big choice. You can also try the Dutch "kroket" with mustard, I never tried some but business colleagues did and told me it was nice.
The available beverage is perfect, no matter what you ask they'll serve it. To give a little advice, you should try the fresh pineapple juice.
Like mentioned before the hotel is situated perfect for business people to have a quick lunch but I can imagine that for some tourists this is hotel is also a good choice. You are close to the highway which goes to all wind directions, North to Amsterdam, East to Utrecht, West to The Hague and South to Rotterdam. If you want to visit Gouda for shopping or its culture you are in the centre within 10 minutes by car.
About the rooms I can't say anything because I only visit Campanile for its restaurant and the toilet ;-)
A lunch for 2 persons didn't cost me more than €25, - and that's including 2 juice/milk and 2 cappuccino. When you ask me to describe this in three words I would say; Good, cheap and quick.
