Hotel Restaurant Bitter en Zoet can be found in historic Veenhuizen, a particular village in Drenthe. The hotel has charming double rooms. Each room is unique in style and has a private bathroom. The dinner was delicious, staff was professional, everything was clean, village interesting.
This hotel features rooms with free Wi-Fi in Norg, only 25 minutes’ drive from the center of Groningen. Location was great , windmill literally just across the road , manager , was amazingly helpful. Hotel very clean and tidy . Restaurant attached to hotel , food very good. A lot of other restaurants nearby. All within walking distance.
Definitely go to the Gevangenis Museum (prison museum) & if possible, add a boevenbus (prisoner transport) & rode pannen (red roof tiles) prison tour to your itinerary. Surprisingly, this is a fantastic museum for kids as well. They have a lot of kid oriented exhibits (older kids) & even an outdoor play area in the shape of a jail (younger kids). Unfortunately however the only thing in English was a museum guide book so if you don't bring along a translator you will find it difficult to follow what things aren't self explanatory.
Bitter en zoet is a great place to stay. We wish we had arrived on days when the museum was open. Access to superb environment is the essence of this stay as well as wonderfully hospitable staff and great cuisine.
Visit the Gevangenismuseum! It tells about the history of Veenhuizen and since it is the national jail museum, it also explains in general about how jails and justice work in the Netherlands and how they have changed over time. Also, there are some nice geo caches in the village!
Veenhuizen is known for its museum. The museum is an old prison and the whole village reminds you of this with special houses and atmosphere. Also the hotel is built in this way. You can have a nice walk in the surroundings.
