Characterful hotel in rural Friesland run by an extremely pleasant family. 10 rooms and a restaurant and bar. Outstanding hospitality from owners Yvonne and Jorg; we were made to feel at home from the minute we arrived. Simple and comfortable en-suite bedrooms. The restaurant is excellent. We enjoyed the best meal of our 10 day trip to Friesland and Groningen... More

If I did not have to work in this area, I probably would never have found this place, but having done so I found the owners friendly, the staff are very pleasant, the food is of a high standard, the beer cold and tasty and the place warm and welcoming.

We spent a couple of weeks in the neighbourhood of Pieterburen this September, and one evening, around 7pm, returning from one of our outings, we stopped at De Oude Smidse for dinner. They only had a couple in the restaurant, having a drink, and when we asked if we could have dinner, the owner was a bit taken aback. They... More

Nice hotel in a beautiful surrounding. Good service. Rooms well equiped. I had a double room for me alone but I can imagine staying in that room with 2 people is not so comfortable, it is not very big. They have a curtainsystem that looked wonderful. To protect you from the sun in daytime you can pull up a transparant... More

This hotel is located about 10 minutes away from Pieterburen and the Seal Creche. Very pleasant front patio and nice restaurant inside. We were warmly welcomed by the owners after our late arrival and asked if we would like dinner. We only ordered wine and the owners secret recipe apple cake! Room was very clean and bathroom nicely appointed. Great... More
