“Peaceful location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Very peaceful location. We booked this hotel last minute for a weekend to relax. Although advertised as free WIFI throughout the hotel (one of the reasons we booked) WIFI was not available in the bedrooms. I asked at reception what the problem was but they did not know and offered no offer of compensation. So I had to use the public area to work. The room was comfortable and spacious but very warm we had to have the window open all the time. Buffet breakfast at the weekend was excellent but the waiter was unhelpful and not enough tables were set up we had to wait while he made up a table, no apologies were given and in 3 days he did not wish us good morning once. The reception girls were much more pleasant and helpful and attempted to speak English to us which was very accommodating of them. On the Monday morning breakfast was unexpectedly changed to table service and no buffet offered. Very Odd took everyone by surprise. The service was very slow and they could not accommodate us with a soft boiled egg only offered hard boiled?? Very disappointed. They shoudl stick to buffet style. Dining experience was exceptional and the "Surprise Dining" experience was very novel and the food was excellent. The hotel looks beautiful from the outside but a bit tired and shabby on the inside. Carpets are tired and pool area a bit forelorn and very warm.

I was on a business trip to Leeuwarden but due to the annual Dutch Mayor's conference that is held in the town there were no hotel rooms available, hence a twenty minute (c. EUR40) taxi journey from Leeuwarden railway station to Oudkerk was necessary.

The hotel is in a sleepy village and set amongst reasonable size grounds. It is extremely quiet, hence the best night's sleep I have had in 4 years of travelling across Europe with work (it helped that the bed was comfortable). I ate in the hotel restaurant, and although the menu was entirely in Dutch, the very helpful waitress translated everything into English for me effortlessly. It was a very good dining experience all round, with good service ad excellent food.

The rooms was a bit dated, but mine was of a good size and very clean. There was a flat screen TV with numerous TV channels, including the BBC! The bathroom was clean, with a bath and separate shower.

Breakfast was again excellent, with a good choice for which to start the day. Due to the good weather, I took my breakfast on the terrace, which was great.

This is NOT a business hotel, but I would definitely come back here again if I was in need of a hotel in the vicinity of Leeuwarden. It would be ideal for a couples stay.

We liked this hotel. We were a group of 14 and had cars, not sure if the hotel can be reached by public transportation. Friendly staff, very willing to help. Lovely garden. If you want disco and night activities, you do not want to stay here. But if you enjoy quiet and the parc surrounding the hotel, this is a good place. We enjoyed the pool area at the end of the day.
