We have had a very pleasant stay at a family room, containing two bedrooms and a livingroom/kitchen. In the bathroom, toilet and kitchen there were some curious stains on the walls and ceiling. At our spacious balcony we've found a small plate which was used as an ashstray by the previous guests. Uncleaned. This looked a bit strange. The masterbedroom... More

We slept here in the beginning of september with our company trip (65 employees). Dinner was ok (not too special; buffet), service was good, kind waiters. Rooms were fine, good beds and nice balcony. 1 1/2 km walk to the beach, the hotel arranged the bicycle rental. Good value.

Good rooms, friendly staff, nice breakfast buffet style. Do not eat in the restaurant though, it is really not good enough. Menu has not changed in 2 years, actually I do not know why they are still open. Nice place to stay with kids for a weekend. Use the pool, rent some bikes, go to the sea, eat some pancakes... More

the breakfast was really nice; and some of the staff very friendly. basically this is an ok place to put up camp if you wish to break away during the day--i.e. these are not rooms in which you wish to stay all day, but in the end they serve the purpose; bathroom a bit tiny. the double-bed was in fact...

Nothing really wrong with it, reasonable rates for what you get. But views from rooms less than ravishing. Hotel's restaurant under-used mainly due to totally uninspiring menu, we thought... Parking lot unpaved and pot-holed with gravel that's being tracked all over.... Bicycle parking-sheds over-crowded with mass-stored rental bikes and unsufficient e-bike re-charging facilities. Swimming pool tiny and utilitarian. All in... More

Nice, new hotel just outside Nes... It is half a hour walking from the ferry, but you can also rent bikes at the ferry and they arrange that the luggage is delivered at the hotel. The beach is also within walking distance, but again renting a bike is probably the best way to explore the island. Good, comfortable rooms with... More

I've been to Hotel Noordsee a couple of times as a single parent with my 5 year old son. It conveniently located between the beautiful village Nes and the beach, both within 5 minutes by bike of 10-15 minutes walking. In case of bad weather (not unlikely), my son always enjoys the swimming pools. At this time of the year,... More

We stayed here for New years eve and had the new year's eve package, which I thought was quite expensive, but all holiday packages at every hotel seem to be more expensive this year, so, okay... the disappointing part was that you had to pay extra for everything! The website mentioned that there's a swimming pool and sauna, but if... More

This is the kind of hotel where everything is what you should expect of a four star hotel in The Netherlands. Comfortable and very clean rooms, friendly and efficient staff, nice pool, good breakfast etc etc. The location is good too, close to the centre in the village of Nes and also walking distance from the fantastic beaches!

We are familiar on Ameland due to 6 earlier vacations there and have always rented our own apartments in Buren and Nes. This time we chose to stay at Westcord Hotel Noordsee, as it is located very close to the North Sea, comparable to the better located apartments in Buren. Arriving on Monday afternoon, we parked at the back of... More
