Hotels with gluten-free food
Given that in most cases you want to eat at the hotel, you are dependent on the kitchen. Namely, can they accommodate gluten-free dietary needs? In my own experience, in some countries it’s easy to find a gluten-free hotel.
You can often contact the hotel when booking to indicate that gluten-free food needs to be taken into account. Most hotels want to know this in advance so that they can prepare, because there may not be a standard supply of, for example, gluten-free bread or other gluten-free food.
However, it varies from country to country, as well as from hotel to hotel. One hotel may say they offer gluten-free food, but in practice that may mean just a few pre-packaged Schär crakcers while the toppings are among all the gluten products….
So proper preparation is very important. We try to list only the best hotels in most cases, but it can also happen that the gluten-free offer at a particular hotel is not completely great. You always remain responsible yourself! So pay attention to this and always inform yourself well in advance.
Gluten-free hotel abroad
Finding a suitable hotel abroad is always exciting. Is the language barrier a factor or do they really understand that it can make you very ill? During your vacation, you want to avoid being out of the running for a few days because of cross-contamination.
In some countries it is no trouble at all to find a suitable hotel, while there are also countries where this is not so easy. In addition, there are also large differences within all suitable hotels. One hotel may take this into account more than another by offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, for example. You will also find hotels which indicate that they can provide gluten-free meals, but only offer a simple breakfast.

Looking to Book a gluten-free hotel?
The hotels I mention on my website offer the possibility of offering gluten-free meals. Still, there are some things you should consider before booking a hotel:
Always contact the hotel in advance to pass on gluten-free dietary needs.
This also applies to hotels that indicate they can always accommodate gluten-free dietary needs. They may always need to prepare or replenish supplies.
Try to find reviews about the hotel and gluten-free food. I notice from most of my readers’ responses that they still find it exciting to book. By reading (good) reviews from fellow sufferers, you reassure yourself a bit. Do you have questions about a specific hotel? Leave a message via the contact form. We have a huge database ourselves with lots of information!
Google for example “glutenfree” in combination with the hotel name. Also try to use the local translation. Want to know more about a Spanish hotel for example? Use “sin gluten” in combination with the hotel name.
Finally, you can always put the question to a travel operator. So suppose you book a vacation through a Sunweb, Corendon or a TUI, they can also request information on your behalf from various hotels and check their database. Why reinvent the wheel? So be sure to make use of this as well.
Do you still have doubts about a specific hotel? Please feel free to contact us. We have a database full of information where we can also do something for you!
