This inn was booked for us by the tour company. When we first arrived, I was disappointed that the hotel is not right in the downtown area. It is only a five minute bike ride, but I was expecting to be right in the town. From the outside, the hotel seems a bit outdated and run down. The hall to... More

It's basic and that's OK. Restaurant is only open until 20:30 and the breakfast is good and basic. Room I had was with the basic features, shower and toilet in plain white tiles. Room was a good size and the parking in front of the hotel is no problem.

An excellent, accessible hotel, well placed for visiting Franeker whose centre, with its wonderful 18th century planetarium, is about ten minutes' walk away. Also ideally placed for visiting by car the nearby towns of Leeuwarden and Harlingen. The room was comfortable and well appointed and the breakfast was excellent, offering probably the best croissants ever tasted! The special offer room... More

The hotel was just average, typical for a small town, the front desk staff doubled in the restaurant as the front desk was basically in the restaurant. The room was clean, no real issues there. The whole hotel was a bit run down, but for the money it was ok. What amazed us was the food, we ordered room service... More
