Our history

Family business and purveyor to the royal household


Dick and Martha te Kolsté opened Hotel Central in Roosendaal on 14 June 1914. It is said that stones from the old Rosendaal railway station were (re)used for this purpose.



Dick te Kolsté died. Vic and Jet van Baal took over the hotel.



Mr and Mrs van Baal transferred the running of the hotel to A.H. Muller in September 1960 . The hotel remained the property of Vic and Jet van Baal.



Joke Rademakers-Nollen took over as manager of the hotel.



Jan and Corrie Sistermans started running the hotel. When Vic van Baal died, the Sistermanses bought the premises.



After extensive renovations, the hotel reopened.



Daughter Truce and her husband Jos joined the restaurant.



Jos and Truce Oskam took over Hotel Central from their parents (in law).



Hotel Central celebrated its centenary and the owners received the designation ‘purveyor to the royal household’. This shield still hangs on the façade.



On 1 January 2019, Jody Mekes and Rob de Weerd took over the hotel-restaurant. In September 2020, they also become the owners of Hotel Goderie in Roosendaal. This business then continued in 2021 with a new name and concept: The Rosendale.



Restaurant Sistermans is included in the Gault&Millau guide with a rating of 12|20.
