Sadly, Very Bad kitchen staff, avoid eating in this hotel. There are
Plenty of Great restaurants and cafés just around the corner beachside -
boulevard! Bad breakfast, pre-cooked dishes, ie; scrambled eggs,
pancakes, etc.... cold and bone dry, yuk!!!! Cheap breads, no pastries.
Luckily, there is a egg stand with chef, so that was decent, and a fresh
juice machine, ignore the bitter after taste of the orange peel! And
please, stop looking for the sugar.....it's in a bowl next to each
of the 2 coffee machines. .....No sugar sachets in this fine
establishment, I guess they are being taken to the rooms too much??????
Also, if you think you took a wrong turn and ended in a smelly, grubby
storage facility, then you have entered the so-called
"bar"...Why the bar was left behind in the past...I Have no
idea, I guess the budget just didnot cover the pub in the end.....I
Cannot for the life of me figure it out....but we got the heck out of
there fast, and had our nightcap on the tiny terras. Last, but not
least...never book directly at this hotel, as their Reservation
Department is extremely unfriendly and, quite frankly, rude and
stupid!!!! Always book through booking.com, you will be treated as one
should, perfectly, as this booking goes straight through to reception,
where they do know how to treat their guests....
An hotel which brings up mixed feelings.....the majority of the
establishment is very pleasant, modern, nice and extremely clean. Rooms
very spacious, exceptionally comfortable, nicely furnished, bathrooms
gorgeous but tight, Nespresso machine in the room for free use.
Fantastic airconditioning, which is very unique in the Netherlands! Very
professional and friendly reception staff, also unique! Fabulous
cleaning staff. Good parking facilities. Fantastic location, on the
North beach, quiet, clean, but a stones throw awayfrom the boulevard
with countless eating and drinking establishments and shops. Also the
pier is very close by, and the bus and tramstops to the city just about
200m away. Great view from room, depending on room!!!!!!! Excellent
coffee served in this hotel. If this hotel had a kitchen and bar to
match the rest of the otherwise lovely hotel, I would just love coming
back, but for now, very undecided where to stay next time round, a
pity....I Do so love my hotel to have a decent kitchen..especially a
good, warm, hearty breakfast,...can't be that difficult for a 4 star
hotel, can it?????
