It has been the second time that we have been to this hotel as a family, and we took again the family suite with a large living room overlooking the beach & the island. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable - having this separate living room really makes a difference when spending the whole time with our three... More

The hotel is beautifully located near the sea in no where. You can listen and hear the silence, the wind, the birds and sometime the sea in the background. It's a great place to relax, but not ideal if you want to get to the villages and you don't have a car. If you rent a bike you can get... More

We stayed here during the Orerol festival and as a result the prices were greatly inflated. We paid approximately $280 per night for a ground floor standard room. Unfortunately the couple we were traveling with made the arrangements without telling us about the exorbitant prices and so we were shocked with the price especially since what we got was equivalent...

the location is great, typical Dutch sea and dunes scenery,an endless beach, excellent rental bikes and a nice beach cafe down on the beach. The hotel is big for Dutch standards, it has a somewhat Cape Cod feeling. Rooms are spacious, beds are typically Dutch, no king size, no queens, but small and narrow beds. However sleeping is a joy... More

A wonderful place to visit at the Wadden Island Terschelling in The Netherlands, A four star hotel which deserve every star. For people who aren't looking for the busy and classical tourist industry.

We really like this place, it's modern architecture is very pleasing amidst the sand dimes. However, it is true that the seafront facing rooms are without much sun on the balconies whereas the island facing rooms will get the best of the sun : you can't have it all. The practices we took room 106 with a nice sea view... More
