Lonely Planet review
An ornate 1882-built art-nouveau water tower has been transformed into this ode to Dutch design. Inside the tower, 36 individually designed rooms have stunning art on contrasting feature walls; a suite hides in a secret garden. Views stretch to Rotterdam from the glass-paned rooftop terrace; the organic restaurant in the pumping station is sublime. Private boat rental is available.
Our independent authors have visited Villa Augustus and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Dordrecht.
