    Mosquitoes, but only a problem in Summer! Would be perfect if the doors/windows have netting so, even when we open them we can still keep the mosquitoes out. The room is a bit hot in extreme summer without any fan or air conditioning.

    Fresh Yummy Breakfast! Excellent food and service!

    Not sure about the sunken bath tub. I almost slipped when getting out, and I can imagine it’s not easy for elderly people.

    Perfect location for exploring the nearby Oostvaardersplassen. Nice atmosphere in the room, with walls that really fits nicely with the surroundings (mine had a big kingfisher photo as wallpaper).

    Location is far out if you dont have a car, no buses available and taxi is expensive to get to closest train station, should have researched before as our trip was partly for amsterdam, lovely peaceful place otherwise, also be quick going into room as bugs can get in, they do have a bug cover though on outside of door and windows so just make sure its shut at night.

    Rural bliss next to the motorway
    • Business trip
    • Solo traveller
    • Standard Double Room
    • Stayed 1 night

    It didn't really bother me, but as others have noted, the frogs directly outside make an incredible lot of noise. The breakfast choices in the restaurant didn't really suit me: the combinations offered go overboard either on the sweet side (pancakes, berries) or on the savoury side (beans, black-and-white pudding...). Normally I'd pick just some bread, ham, jam, juice and tea but that isn't on the menu here and putting something together gets quite costly (I paid € 15 for breakfast).

    Friendly reception. Safe parking for my motorbike. Nice little room with comfy bed. Fresh air through a small window with insect screen. Lots of hot water, and quick too. The 'hotel' is really a small annex to the Haje roadside restaurant, so there's plenty of food & drink choices.

    1> Location is far, far away from any city. Via google maps I knew before booking that it would be far, but didn't guess it would be this far (keeping Amsterdam city as reference). There is nothing to do in the evening except to watch TV or be in the pub in the nearby restaurant. So it is better to arrive late here and leave early. 2> Breakfast is not included in the room rate. Given the fact that there are no better options other than a small 'TAKE AWAY' kiosk selling limited stuff (sandwiches, coffee, juice, etc), if one wants to have a proper breakfast cost is 9.5 Euros. This is available in the nearby restaurant. Again breakfast is not buffet type given this price. At this price one gets a glass of fresh orange juice, 2 slices of white-bread, 2 slices or cheese, some ham/meat, butter, jam, chocolate-spread, a croissant and a cup of coffee of your choice.

    Lake and nature nearby. All modern facilities in the room. Clean. Balcony overlooking the lake.
