“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is à very nice hotel near the beach. You can bike to the beach of to Alkmaar. We are dutch and liked it very much but I think that foreign tourists would love it. Nice decorated and wonderful breakfast.

I travelled a lot in the Netherlands and visited many hotels so far. This one is one of nicest ones decorated with great style. The staff is very helpful as well. Why going elsewhere? I'll be back soon.

My husband and I went to Castricum to attend a friend's party on the beach. Through a web search, we stumbled upon the website of Hotel het Oude Raddhuis. It is the old town-hall of Castricum which the mother-and-son tandem, Edith and Sjoerd, renovated and built into a modern hotel. They did a fabulous job at keeping the original details of the building (which is officially declared a monument) and at the same time giving it a contemporary country feel. The hotel's interior is styled by Riviéra Maison.
At the moment we made the inquiry, the team we're still working so hard to reach their deadline. After an exchange of emails with Sjoerd, a room was booked even before the hotel was officially opened. Because we had the honor to be their very first guests, we were made to choose our own room. We went for "Kamer Burgelijke Stand en Secretarie" (they kept the original names on the doors) located on the 2nd floor (3rd for USA). It has a blue motif with high ceilings, exposed beams, a large window with shutters, a good sized wardrobe to stack your clothes away, enough floor space to move around, and a beach-themed bathroom/shower. The bed is big and firm but with a wonderfully soft and fluffy top. I'm a sucker for cleanliness and this hotel more than met my expectations.
Hotel het Oude Raadhuis is located on the main street. If you're short of cash, there are 2 banks/ATMs across it. You can also rent a bicycle across the street if you don't want to take the car or walk all the way to the dunes and the beach which is just a few minutes away. There are restaurants, bars and café's, and even the movies - all that within about a 500-meter radius.
Breakfast was served at their Grand Café and was very delicious and plenty! There were different choices of breads, sweet bread fillings, cheeses and cold cuts. There were eggs, cereals, yoghurt, coffie/tea and juices.
Edith and Sjoerd, thank you for making us feel very welcome! You both are the most gracious of hosts.
