    The restaurant is excellent in service and food--but price per meal could be better and would attract more people to eat thereat least once on their stay.Perhaps offer discounts etc when booking?

    The views are good from hotel.Evening meal was excellent and staff are very helpful.Whats not to like ?

    Really we enjoyed everything, if we had to say something it would be I would have liked more pillows, I am sure if I had asked more would have been provided though.

    Rooms were big and comfortable. Location was excellent close to Bergen and the dunes. Breakfast was brilliant, lots of choice, great timing to suit everyone. Swimming pool was lovely.

    The dinner menu choices were arty and limited, so we decided not to eat there, and had a very enjoyable meal in Bergen.

    We stayed here for one night in May 2018. Our third floor room was beautiful and the bed was huge! The hotel is nestled in woodland that provides ample outdoor activity and the hotel caters for that, but is a full 20-minute walk into Bergen if you can find your way through the paths! The hotel is light and airy, and has quirky notes and signs displayed all round which are all part of its ethos of not so much a hotel but more of a meeting or gathering place. Still very good.

    Great family friendly hotel. Our room was quite large, and very quiet. Amazing location - so much cycling around. We even managed to rent a bike on which we could put our 1 year old baby. Staff was super helpful. Food at the restaurant is nice (and our room was within range of the baby monitor). The restaurant has a great playroom for kids. Nice design / colors / amenities... really lovely!!!!

    Bedside lamp didn't work properly; poor water pressure on immersion/rain shower. These are trivial complaints—nothing that would ruin a stay—but they nevertheless make for a clumsy impression.

    The bed: quilt was thin so it was a bit too cold during the night.

    This hotel is a perfect break for guests with ánd for guests without kids. I loved the fact that the staff is really friendly and welcoming when you travel with kids. It was Christmas holiday, so there where more kids than usual. To maintain the calm atmosphere, they've decorated an extra playroom for kids and arranged kids activities, so kids wouldn't get bored and bother other guests, and their parents could relax too.

    The staff were warm and helpful, the place itself is spacious and relaxing, and having the pool and sauna to ourselves in the evening was a huge bonus.

    It may have been an incident, but there was quite a lot of dust on a specific place on the head-end of the bed. It looked like it has been overlooked by the cleaners for some time. A petty, because this makes the difference between 'good' and 'very good'.

    The property is on a perfect location in Bergen NH. From the hotel you walk directly into the woods and the famous dutch dunes. The personel is very friendly, but not to formal. Allthough I did not have the time to use the facilities, I managed to have a look around which made me feel very sorry that I was to stay only one night for business purposes. The area is very touristic, so on top of the business visitors and the people having a training, you will find many tourists. The breakfast is simply fabulous.

    The Sauna was not working one night. There were no towels in the swimming area. It would be great to provide towels, some water, and shoes for the swimming pool area. Sea is quite far, nice to walk through the dunes, but more than 5km one way. Not easily to reach without car. A lot of Mosquitos. The rooms were quite dark. Some extra lights could be helpful. Cleanliness could be better. It was a bit dusty, some spiders, etc. However, the hotel is in the dunes and forest, so some nature might be unavoidable.

    It was silent, calm, good to relax. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Food good, and very accommodating, but still quite restricted possibilities for a vegan. Overall a nice hotel and fully recommended.

    lack of amenities in bathroom, poor quality of television in room -it wasn't really a four star hotel. No porc or poultry on the dinner menu.

    location, family friendly, good starting point for discovering nature. free coffee, fruit and tea in the lounge. nice terrace and scenery.

    Booked single rooms - could have done with a little more space, but for the price i paid i was happy.

    Quiet rural location. Breakfast was AMAZING. Ambiance lovely with plenty of cost lounge areas. Restaurant had loads of character and food was good.

    Everything was perfect

    A great place to stay amidst beautiful surroundings - sand dunes and forests in Bergen NH, the artist village, where I spent most of my youth. Rooms very clean with comfortable beds, big breakfast, very helpful and approachable staff ready for a chat, sauna, good bikes for rent, library, free coffee and tea. This is excellent value for money in generally overpriced Holland and Europe. As I have still family living in Bergen, I certainly will come back in the future. For me this has become another 'home away from home'

    Outside the rooms there were some dirty glasses/cups in the corridor, which was unusual. I'm not sure if the restaurant belongs to the hotel, but I found it a bit pricy. Could consider installing an ATM since you'd have to go all the way into town in order to withdraw money.

    Very comfortable bed, nice environment, friendly staff, affordable prices. Awesome bicycle renting service!

    Everything was great, but they could provide a nicer soap for the bathrooms. It is a bit "industrial" and only one type -- no lotion, no creme rinse for hair, etc.

    Sauna was not hot on the openings times mentioned. Tiles in shower of room 1303 should be redone. Was not dirty but looks dirty.

    I had breakfast in the hotel twice. The first time was very pleasant. The second could have been, but the hostess insisted that I sit back out of the way, telling me other tables were reserved. She was trying to save them for couples or families, but I found her rude, and she was really wrong -- one table in the sun she chased me away from sat completely empty for the 30 minutes I had my breakfast. This is NOT how you treat guests in hotels that hope to cater to international travelers used to fine hotels. Indeed, I was paying more for my breakfast than most, since I was by myself, but in an expensive double room near the pool.

    This hotel has the best indoor pool for swimming laps or just relaxing that I have found in any hotel from New York to Brussels. It is lovely, truly lovely.

    Sounds of closing doors travel easily through the halls (in the morning), but overall a very quite place.

    Excellent breakfast and food. Beds were very good and facilities were operational. Staff was very friendly.

    Lovely looking hotel - colourful and quirky. Bar and reception staff very friendly and lovely. Room could have been a little cleaner but nothing that bad (stains on wall). Bed a little uncomfortable, but again, nothing too bad (lopsided matress). Excellent value for money. Will stay there again if i'm in the area.

    Some small damage in the bathroom tiles, but not terrible.

    Great breakfast with loads of sustainable options from their own garden, a luxurious breakfast in bed as well. Beautiful swimming pool and great proximity to the sea.
