A pleasant hotel, very good breakfast buffet, culinary restaurant, good food and tasty wines. Very nice café (it is said to be the cosiest café on the island!) and terrace. Rent a bike and enjoy the small island Ameland. It's worth it.

Stayed in one of the suites - quite large, and with a jacuzzi bath. A beach theme was suggested in the white room by slatted wooden room divider and bed headboard. Staff were pleasant and there is a cosy quirky bar and an excellent restaurant (see separate review). Only downside was no way to cool the room - we requested... More

Stayed here 2 nights with the boyfriend while visiting his sister and her family who were vacationing on the island. I must say I was surprised to find a hotel so modernly decorated on the island. We had a suite which was sizeable and included a mini bar, a large sectional type chair with ottoman, and a round table. The... More

We stayed in the church suite of Hotel Nobel and found it very special. Intersting and quirky design, very well-stocked kitchen in terms of appliances with an excellent coffee machine. Can sleep up to 6, though 4 is probably better, as the third bedroom is not separated at all from the common areas. However, for this price I do expect... More

Had a great time staying in this hotel for a long weekend. Due to availability, stayed in two different room types: Suite: large room, about double the size of the standard room. Bathtub with jets was great. Queen sized bed, leather sofa, and table with chairs. Downside: no outdoor space, only windows. Garden Room: smaller than the suite, shower only... More

A small hotel in an ever smaller village on the island of Ameland. Nice rooms, not overly sophisticated, but very clean, all amenities one wold expect (except for an inroom safe). Not top class and very luxurious, but probably the best on the island. Very cosy bar. A really excellent restaurant, worth the trip if you are on the island.... More
