The Stenden University of Applied Sciences in the pretty capital Leeuwarden of the province of Fryslân, The Netherlands, also teaches hospitality services. Part of that programme entails instruction in hotel and restaurant management including actual hotel crafts and cooking. To that end there is a full-scale hotel on the grounds of the campus. Though a bit of a walk from... More

I went to college here and only worked in the hotel. This was the first opportunity to sleep here. We were welcomed warmly, with a nice drink in the bar. The room is spacious, has comfortable beds, wifi and relatively complete bathroom. Only the 'water power' at the showerhead was limited. This was the only negative thing in the room.... More

Now the new restaurant is completely ready and that means that breakfast is served in the restaurant again. We hope to welcome you... More

I spent 3 lovely days in Leeuwarden, a very hospitable town, and very nice hotel. Staff in the hotel are hospitality students of Stenden university college, and they are doing a good job, the youngest ones serving, elder organising, eldest managing. It is very interesting to wander through university hallways on your way to breakfast, and to meet relaxed students... More

The stay was lovely but I felt like the employees were hovering a little too much, like I was always being watched. A bit more distance and privacy would be welcome and I will most certainly ask if I need help with anything :)

I did not know that it was an education Hotel. I found it interesting to see how the students did there very best to service as good as possible, but to recognize that they still have to learn a lot. We had also dinner in the restaurant and were very pleased about the quality of food and the perfect service.

Very nice hotel, with friendly staff. They learn on the job and make a huge effort to give you a high level of hospitality. They might ask more questions than you are used to. And some are more confident than others. But they will help you out with near anything you need. Kitchen is very good and the city centre... More
