Not easy to find, best to approach from the east along Willemsweg. Convenient car parking area just across the street from the hotel (down a side street). A lot of steps to reach the bedrooms (but some are accessible at street level around the corner in Vollerswaal). Rooms are large and reasonably clean and the staff are very friendly. The... More

This was our 3rd stay here, the last one perhaps 10 years ago. They exceeded our expectations in every way. Our room was on the 1st floor of the annex with 2 huge windows looking out on the canal. The small side street can be a bit noisy, but it did not bother us at all-- very quiet at night.... More

We stayed here as a family of four for one night on a recent motoring holiday in the Netherlands. The room we had was around the side of the hotel in an annexe (so we could not get wi-fi access in the room). Although the room was quite small it was adequate and was very comfortable. We had a very... More

My wife and I were flying in and out of Amsterdam on a trip, so we decided to spend a few days in Holland. We selected Hoorn as a central town from which we could do day trips to see that area of the country. When researching hotels, I selected the Hotel de Magneet from several offered on the internet...

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel. We would highly recommend this hotel. Family run hotel - Rob was so patient, kind & very helpful. Loved Hoorn - charming walkable city. Would have liked to stay longer in the area & at De Magneet. Included breakfast which was a wonderful selection of Dutch items, with lovely presentation.

A lovely hotel in a remarkable location, both for the town and the harbour. My wife is disabled and we have to take care when choosing hotels, and this was perfect for us. The owners and staff were both efficient and kind, and always put their customers` needs first. The room was very clean and very comfortable and the owners... More

Exceptional and friendly services from check in till check out. Great location for Hoorn five minutes walk to harbour and environs ten minutes drive to ring road. Good continental breakfast. Rooms slightly dated. All spotlessly clean

We stayed here in October 2013. The room was a triple off a main courtyard. It was clean and spacious with a good sized bathroom and a walk in shower. The owners were friendly and very helpful. They offered an accessible room (without pre-booking), loan of a local cycle map and even a late breakfast when we got the time... More
