The name says it all; Oldschool Hotel is located in a former secondary school in the heart of Winterswijk. In addition to serving as a hotel, the old school also accommodates 30 residential flats. Joining the permanent residents of the building offers you a unique opportunity to relive your school days!

Guest seeking a scholarly atmosphere will appreciate The Library, while those seeking relaxation can indulge in the wellness facilities offered by The Professor. For a truly adventurous stay, consider The Principal, though is it really such a punishment?

"Beautiful room, lovely bed and a fantastic bath!"

My husband and I stayed overnight at The Principal. Our expectations were surpassed! The beautiful spacious room has the stateliness you would expect from a headmaster's room. The bathtub is truly fantastic! We had pre-ordered a bottle of champagne and a wonderfully scented bath oil. We spent the entire evening in the tub, watching Netflix on the large TV! We were glad we had booked a lazy Sunday, as the bed was delightful, allowing us to extend our relaxation. We will certainly return to this hotel, as we are now very curious about the other rooms!

The stately front building, dating back to 1870, has been restored to its former glory. At the top of the façade, the inscription “Rijks Hoogere Burgerschool” still remains, a testament to the building’s previous function as a municipal monument. This is why we are proud to be listed on the National Monument Portal:

How it all began

Resident and former pupil of the school, Jeroen Schreurs, along with his two companions, Arthur and Hans van Santen, purchased the old high school from the municipality of Winterswijk in 2017. Thus began the great adventure of transforming the old, empty school into a vibrant building.
