    Free upgrade, very nice breakfast, nice room with fresh beds (ventilation). Had a drink at the bar and enjoyed the Michelin star restaurant which was the main goal of our trip. Go for a walk in the dunes while you're there.

    Check out took time (IT problem I was told and receptionist apologised). There is no kettle in the room, hopefully there is a wide choice of tea at the bar :-)

    Very friendly staff, very helpful. Love the room, nice size, decorated with care, huge bathroom! The best check in ever, everything was ready I have my name and straight to the room.

    Excellent friendly comfortable hotel from which to explore the dunes and beaches of North Holland

    Excellent hotel located in the village of Schoorl a short distance from the dunes and beaches of North Holland. The hotel is well equipped and furnished. As well as a highly rated formal restaurant - which we didn't use on this trip - there is an excellent informal bistro . The food in the bistro was very good . Staff throughout were friendly and helpful. The hotel is a good base for exploring the local area; and for cycling - bikes can be hired from the hotel. Highly recommended

    Not having an opportunity to enjoy the swimming pool and having to leave the next morning...

    This is an outstanding Michelin starred restaurant which has rooms. We took the last available room which was a suite, huge room beautifully presented and very comfortable. Dinner was a tour de force with a team so committed to making the experience memorable. It was more than a dining experience - it was like being conducted through an exhibition of outstanding art - art that you got to enjoy by eating it. Several courses beautifully designed and presented and with expertly matched wines, so well explained by the sommelier. We retired for the night not over-full but our minds continuing happily to savour the journey we had just enjoyed in the restaurant. I would rate this as among the best dining experiences I have ever enjoyed! It is superbly situated with wonderful views over meadows in a very quiet neighbourhood. Yet it was only a relatively short but pleasant drive to historic Alkmaar. Without doubt we will be back.

    We booked a deluxe room, but it was pretty standard. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. But the bathroom was exceptionally poor. Deluxe it was not. No fridge or mini bar, no tea/coffee facilities. After check in I expressed my disappointment, by was told room standard was determined by size. When asked about our stay at check out, I again said that we were disappointed by the standard of the room and was told that only some of the rooms had been renovated, ours was not one of them, but she hoped our dog had enjoyed his stay. Maybe the categorization of the rooms could be reassessed to meet the physical reality and the price! The breakfast was okay. But in a hotel boasting a Michelin star, being handed (literally from her hand to mine) a cold hard boiled egg by the waitress was a surprise. There was no choice, no buffet - beyond bread and cereal. Dinner was very nice, if a little slow. Compared to other fine dining experiences, it is surprising that this has been credited Michelin quality though.

    The staff were really lovely, the location is fantastic.

    The bathroom of the suite we booked was really outdated and there was not enough light (shower was in a 'dark' corner of the bathroom). Really time to renovate these bathrooms because they do not match with the very nice suite at all, the bathroom of the standard room we booked the first night was very nice & much better.
