    Great friendly hotel in a typical Frisian/Dutch setting
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller
    • Twin Room with Land View
    • Stayed 3 nights

    Rooms can get hot on the very few hot days that occur in the Netherlands, as they have no air conditioning.

    This is a good place to base trips around the region from. The breakfast buffet is excellent and the restaurant is also great for other meals. Staff are very friendly.

    Very nice hotel, next to a lake. Never traveled this part of Holland before. Very nice 2 nights getaway. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and the dinner at the restaurant also excellent. Very nice swimming pool. Huge room with a nice terasse.

    We enjoyed it as there was a lot to see and do, a few items that can be improved.
    • Leisure trip

    • Family Room

    The breakfast was of low standard. At 15 Euro's this should have been a better quality (Croissant's should have been crispy and fresh and Eggs scrambled should have been delightful and not sure if this was fresh or powder but they were sticky scrambled... - but this was over a two day period - so quality was not good at breakfast). This was at Easter weekend and staff were overwhelmed as you could see double shifts were made (same person at front desk in evening as the one that serves in the morning the breakfast). Moreover, we had a bad experience with the hiring of a boat where we were told to wait 15 minutes as man attending boats was not there (45 minutes later he was still not there, so we cancelled the boat trip and had to plan our day around this error). We recommend that one ensures that the person who hires the boats is there before planning, thus not having the same bad experience as we had.

    Easy going to check (very organized) in and that the food in the evening was very good (excellent). We really enjoyed the personal sauna and pool and atmosphere which we had to ourselves for 1 hour at a fair rate.

    The breakfast was too expensive and not so good for that price (14,50) ( e.g. rolls dry, pancakes too much fat, scrambled egg very uncooked.

    The staff was very friendly! I liked the view from the restaurant. The surrounding is lovely and very quiet.

    Great family hotel. Excellent location , outside Koudum, Friesland. Wonderful view over hotels own yachting harbor and surrounding waterways, from big outside terrace. Strongly recommend booking first floor lakeview rooms, when staying there. Best breakfast we enjoyed for a long time, while luncheon and dinner choices are of first class quality. This was our 2nd stay at this hotel and would return any time

    The sauna has a stench of burned petroleum, instant headache... The sauna part is quiet out dated, the floor terribly slippery. Only for private use with reservation, so it wouldbe possible if you booked this hotel for the sauna, it might be full. So u cant use it. Its not worth it with that stench though

    The location is wonderful, the view from the room at waterfront and the view from the restaurant. Perfect. E-bikes for rent. Boat for rent. Great food.

    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children

    The family suite looked old, and in need of a face lift. For a suite that size, you would expect it to have a good sized bathroom - but no, the bathroom is quite small. The carpets look old and tired. There is a small kitchenette with stoves - but no cutlery or cookware whatsoever! A little more finesse and a slight renovation would go a long way !

    Friendly staff who explained the local attractions to us; breakfast with a variety of options; great food at the restaurant; heated indoor pool, nice and spacious family suite, beautiful surroundings, a great base to explore Friesland and the Wadden Islands.

    Nothing. Highly recommended. Book with confidence.

    Excellent choice. Good out-of-season rates in a beautiful setting. Parking & WiFi is as advertised. Professional front-of-house & welcoming staff. My room was large, modern & well maintained. The included buffet breakfast was excellent. There is a sauna for a small hourly fee. Special mention goes to the free indoor swimming pool; just long enough to do lengths but do not miss the 'whirlpool' button on the central column. It will make you feel like a kid again.. for 10mins. I'd happily stay here again, multi-day, for business or pleasure.
