We are prepared. See you soon!












Open again from June 2


After a few horribly quiet weeks, De Utrechtsche Dom will reopen for guests from 2 June. As usual, we offer bed and breakfast, but we will work in a new way, in a renovated building. Our Guesthouse continues with 8 rooms instead of the twelve we had until now: even smaller, with even less traffic from guests in our building. That is good for everyone’s peace and safety. The building has new carpet. The rooms also have new beds. They also each have a beautiful panoramic photo of Gouda or surroundings on the wall.


We have transformed the budget rooms in De Utrechtsche Dom into cozy sitting rooms. This means that every standard room now has a separate sitting room next to or opposite the room. There is always coffee and tea ready. Guests can also have their takeaway or delivery food when restaurants are to busy.
In the morning we prepare a customized breakfast. We ask guests to submit a breakfast wish list to us the night before. That list will be handed out at check-in, along with our updated house rules and an overview of takeaways and delivery restaurants and cultural institutions with their new access policy.


From now on we work ourselves according to a stricter hygiene protocol, an elaboration of the protocol of Koninklijke Horeca Nederland. That means: hospitality, but we keep distance and pay even more attention to hygiene in the Guesthouse. Our counter, where keeping distance is difficult, has a hygiene screen. Guests can obtain information about the working method in De Utrechtsche Dom, or practical information about the city and region, using the QR code on the screen.


Our house rules have also been tightened to the ‘new normal’: keep where possible. We expect guests to follow international hygiene guidelines, keep their health in order, keep distance to others and indicate in advance what time they want to check in. This way we can avoid crowds at the counter by spreading. We expect some patience from our guests if there are several check-in persons at the same time. We have made a small waiting area for them on the ground floor opposite the counter. For hygiene reasons, we ask guests to bring their own luggage to the rooms as much as possible.


Personally, I hope that things will gradually change in international society. Fortunately, the first reservations for June, July and August are already coming back to us.

Closing until June 1


Since March 23, because of our handling of the coronavirus, all parties, gatherings and events are prohibited in the Netherlands. This ban applies in any case until the 1st of June.

Because De Utrechtsche Dom largely depends on guests from the Netherlands and abroad who come to such things, the Guesthouse will also remain closed until June 1.


Hopefully De Utrechtsche Dom supplies by this decision a small contribution to reducing the spread of the virus.


You can reach us at our email address info@hotelgouda.nl or book a room for later this year.


See you soon,

Temporary closure


Because of the consequences of the corona virus, De Utrechtsche Dom will be closing its doors for the time being. The closure is in any case until Easter weekend, that starts on Friday April the 10th.


You can reach us at our email address info@hotelgouda.nl or book a room for later this year by our website.


See you soon,
