Although we stay in a private cabin, we often dine (and sometimes morning coffee) at the vd Werff. The coffie / bar area might be described as "island funky," but the formal dinning room features a sophistication matching mainland classic hotel kitchens. The staff is uniformly welcoming and professional, and the food is prepared and presented well. The meal cost... More

I can only confirm the reviews about the island, hotel, rooms and dinner. You go the Schier for nature, biking with special bikes on the beach and Dutch Gin at the end of the day with some warm bitter-balls. Vd Werf is the best place to stay on this really beautiful island, where cars are in principle not allowed. DInner... More

We know many people who have been there, having a different rating about the hotel. So we went there for 3 nights. The hotel touringcar is waiting at the ferry harbour and brings you in 5 min to the center of the village. In the hotel you feel like about seventy years back in time and nothing has changed since.The... More

Lovely place to stay in this old-style hotel with good atmosphere, adequate rooms and restaurant for good breakfast and nice evening meals. The island is full of nice beaches and dunes, so walking around freshes your mind.

Back in time hotel,with a really good atmosphere. You don't need to spend a lot of time in your room when you are on the island. No loud music into the restaurant, sometimes a guest plays on the piano. Dinner is great with good food in the most beautiful diningroom on the islands, lovely services and nice prices. I, ve...

Before rating this hotel I have questioned myself a lot about which rating I should give it. On the one hand (the restaurant: dinner, breakfast, terrace outside) it is great and on the other hand (the rooms) it is poor. As I love sleeping and really value a nice bathroom with a good shower with sufficient water coming out of... More

We booked this hotel because we read good reviews about it. And they are right. Already the bus service from the ferry is very convenient. It was raining and most of the people had to go with the paid bus (which was very full) while we had plenty of space to sit. Check-in was very quick, we just got the... More

Lovely dutch old fashion "brown" hotel. No fancy rooms, simple beds, bathroom, table, chairs, closet and tv. best way to describe the rooms is "cute". Very dutch cold breakfast, (bread, yoghurt, fruit). I was little dissapointed there was no toaster and no cappuchino (just plain coffee or Black tea). Dinner is great, lovely service when being served by the older... More
