The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the main city. Your room either looks out on to the dunes or onto the "beach". My room was located on the dunes and you could see the rabbits hopping around which was really cute. The room I was in had 2 small TVs and electronic fireplace which was really cool, 4... More

I recently stayed at the Paal 8 with the intention of having a few days to "get away from it all." My visit accomplished just that. Paal 8 is located apart from the many small towns on Terschelling - but also close enough to the restaurants and nightlife in West Terschelling and Midsland that it is quite easy to get... More

Location is great: in the dunes, near the sea, in the middle of nowhere, with the window open, you hear the waves rushing on the shore, in the morning a variety of bird songs, when you go to the balcony you sea the rabbits and the pheasants playing in the dunes. The hotel is connected to the bicycle routes, and... More

We just spent a long family (2 adults and one 8 year old) weekend on the beautiful island of Terschelling. We chose Paal 8 because of its location - very close to the beach and surrounded by dunes. As it turned out, a family suite was only a couple of Euros more expensive, than a double room with an extra... More

We took advantage of the special 3 for 2 nights deal at the hotel and we were not disappointed! The facilities at the hotel were great swimming pool, steam and sauna, all great after a day of exploring the island. We booked a suite and it was HUGE, 2 bedrooms, separate bathroom and toilet and a massive living area with... More

Hotel Paal 8 is a suitable basis from which the energetic traveller can explore Terschelling, using the network of foot and cycle paths or the few roads. Terschelling on The Netherlands north coast is a relatively small island. It offers an interesting variety of landscapes on a small scale- broad sandy beaches on the North Sea coast and extensive mud... More

I love this hotel. It is beautiful, in a great location and the 4 person suites are magnificent. It's only a pity that there are a few things that avoid me giving it top rating. The showers will make a pool of water on the floor however you position the shower curtain. Worse, the hotel looks very understaffed. At breakfast... More
