At a Glance

This sweeping, traditional country estate just outside Maastricht city limits offers the area’s grandest accommodations.


With a location in the sweeping Geul Valley, the opulent Chateau St. Gerlach offers the area’s best luxury and amenities. Dating back to 1201, this ancient estate was a former nunnery before being purchased by hotel guru Camille Oostwegel as part of his Chateau hotels collection. The property’s history shows, with much of the original architecture preserved and incorporated into the hotel.

The hotel’s 97 rooms are luxurious but traditional. This might be a five-star accommodation but there’s an overwhelming feeling that you might be staying at grandmother’s formal, spacious country home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but do not offer the modern amenities of other hotels in Maastricht. The amenities, however, are unparalleled. Guests have access to the hotel’s Turkish baths, indoor Roman swimming pool and indulgent spa. The grounds include a multitude of lovely gardens and a monastery park that features sculptures from the property’s past.

Who Should Stay

Guests looking for a traditional luxury experience and those who do not mind being in the countryside.
