    The rooms were clean and comfortable. But also the staff was very helpful! We forgot some stuff which is why we called them. They collected all our stuff without hesitation.

  • Hallo Pension Westerburen, een vraagje: we komen aan met de veerpont in de haven, hoe kunnen we het beste naar jullie pensioen gaan, te voet , met een bus of anders ? We zijn van plan om op 16 oct aan te komen en 18 oct weer te vertrekken. Met vriendelijke groeten, Frank en mariska

    Beste gasten, Op Schiermonnikoog aangekomen kunt u het beste de bus nemen met bestemming Middenstreek (lijn 2) en uitstappen bij de halte Middenstreek, u staat dan op 30 meter van onze voordeur. De afstand steiger naar het pension is ongeveer 5 km.
