Historic charme with modern hospitality

Leerhotel Het Klooster

Leerhotel Het Klooster is not only in a beautiful location, it also introduces you to its special history. The beautiful building is a national monument from 1952. In the 1950s, the Order of the Crusaders established a monastery here where they provided education and accommodation for travellers. Leerhotel Het Klooster is a place where historic charm and young hospitality talent meet, both the hotel and restaurant are run by students. Imagine yourself in the beautiful courtyard garden and relax by the pond. The Klooster is a hidden gem with the allure of a hotspot. It is the ideal base for discovering the beauties of Amersfoort and its surroundings.

The pearl of Dutch Cuisine

Restaurant Novice

Chef Rene Bekker and the student brigade welcomes you to restaurant Novice in the cosy courtyard garden of Leerhotel Het Klooster. Restaurant Novice is a jewel in the crown of Dutch Cuisine: a local and sustainable kitchen with delicious seasonal products from Dutch soil. Dutch farmers and gardeners provide delicious, fresh products every day, so that you can make a healthy and tasty choice every season. Together with up-and-coming hospitality talents, we devise, prepare and serve pure, distinctive and surprising dishes. Eating at Novice is pure, original and surprising every time. An appropriate wine is poured with each dish. Or why not try a beer-food combination. At restaurant Novice you are taken into the flavours of the future.
