Restaurant De Librije and Librije’s Hotel.

Restaurant of a Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux and hotel in town. Netherlands,Zwolle

Unique in the world: a very special atmosphere in the heart of the Hanseatic city of Zwolle

Rob van Duijn, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

It took considerable daring to convert a prison dating back to 1739 into a prestigious hotel, but Jonnie and Thérèse Boer have succeeded in creating a very special atmosphere in the heart of the Hanseatic city of Zwolle. Each of the rooms and suites crafted from the old cells features a sophisticated design. Enjoy an evening full of culinary adventures in Restaurant Librije’s Zusje where the kitchen is inspired by the philosophy of Grand Chef Jonnie Boer. In the spring and summer the butlers take guests to Restaurant De Librije on one of the little boats named after the children of Jonnie and Thérèse, Jimmie and Isabelle. Like the hotel, this 16th century former convent is full of surprises. Jonnie Boer is definitely a free-wheeling chef and his imagination is truly unfettered.
