    No tea or coffee making facilities in the room, which was the only place i stayed in during our cycle around the Netherlands that didn't have this.

    Stayed here whilst on a cycling holiday. Had little choice to choose from in the area but the hotel actually exceeded my expectations. Its in a lovely location right on the river and you can sit on the terrace and what the river traffic go by. The room was very large, although quite simple it was fine, and a fabulous view over the river. Big barn to store the bikes. The receptionist very helpful , let us use the washing machine and drier and theres a small swimming pool as well. Chef happily provided me with gluten free rolls at breakfast, and good quality buffet breakfast.

    • Stayed 3 nights

    The restaurant set-up was a bit confusing... there was the main restaurant which was a buffet ("live cooking") and the bar/lounge restaurant which had a limited menu. The first night, it was hard to find staff to seat me at either place, and it wasn't until I seated myself that someone explained that section was buffet only. It was also used for groups, which isn't conducive to individual diners.

    Wonderful location right on the river, with a shared terrace overlooking it. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate (it rained most of my stay), but it would be wonderful in nice weather.

    One day a couple with 2 pets entered the dining place. Because of hygiene & also an allergic reaction to pets, I don't like them entering the dining zone.

    The room was overall comfy & the live cooking is a real plus! Delicious food cooked by professional staff. The staff is friendly and efficient.

    My bedroom was convenient on the ground floor but the car park was adjacent so cars leaving late may be an issue for some visitors.

    Old fashioned heavy metal key fob and an old fashioned metal key, but that would not stop us from going there again.

    The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment and buffet not covered well enough for flies (e.g. open juice cans). Reception staff could have been a little more friendly. I would have liked tea/coffee kettle in room.

    Excellent location at the waterside. Very nice view from the terrace and for exploring the region from the water. Nice to have access to the indoor pool included in the stay. It was nice and quiet at night.

    The skirting board in our room was falling off. There were holes in the towels. On the day we were leaving, our room had been remotely locked during our breakfast, so we could not get back in, although it was only 9.30 am. Most annoying. The staff on reception should be more attentive. The breakfast was somewhat frugal. Definitely not 4 star standard. Where were the dutch pancakes and champagne, there was not even a toaster available.

    The view from the balcony was really special. A lovely quaint fishing village, very quiet and peaceful, just what we were looking for.
