We stayed here at Christmas 2013. The weather was great so we really enjoyed going to the Island. We took an early boat so we arrived well before check-in time. Welcome was really friendly. In the afternoon when the rooms were ready we checked in. The rooms are modern and clean and have a nice atmosphere, though some were a... More

Really a nice and modern hotel in the center of Ness. Rooms are modern and clean with a big tv screen. The bathroom is somehow a little small comparing to the room. Good breakfast! Big plus is the coffee and tea maker on every room with excellent coffee! We only missed a hotel lounge a little bit. We had a... More

The van Heekeren empire has really commercialised the island, from the Sunset Cafe (this is not Santa Monica!) to the anachronous Rixx restaurant. The welcome was one of 'would you like to upgrade your room' rather than 'have you come far' or 'welcome back'. The rooms are functional, bed comfortable and clean bathroom. However, I would happily lose half the... More

The hotel is renamed: "van Heeckeren". It is a nice hotel; fully equipped rooms. Enormous (Smart) TV screen in the room. Very nice breakfast. No lunch or dinner services, which is no problem at all. Many restaurants in the area. Bathroom is small but convenient (shower and bath).

A restyled small room with a worn out bathroom. That is the first thing we noticed after being welcomed by the friendly staff of the now called van heeckeren hotel. After a great day at the island we returned late at night to a noisy hotel with walls that seem to be made of paper, something that considering the enormous... More

Centrally located, clean and pleasant hotel. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Only really bad thing was the soundproofing! I would have given a rate of five bullets if we weren't disturbed by a parade of elephants above us. Believe me, these guests were probably just doing their normal thing, just like us, but the floors are probably made of driftwood!... More
