“Great hotel and restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

Had a great time staying in this hotel for a long weekend. Due to availability, stayed in two different room types:

Suite: large room, about double the size of the standard room. Bathtub with jets was great. Queen sized bed, leather sofa, and table with chairs. Downside: no outdoor space, only windows.

Garden Room: smaller than the suite, shower only (no bathtub), bed was smaller (double?), and two chairs rather than a sofa. But nice patio area with outdoor seating and a lot of room.

Rooms are decorated in a very trendy/modern fashion. A bit over-done, but fun if you don't take it too seriously.

Restaurant on-site is fantastic. We had a "surprise" menu, each course was excellent! Service was great as well.

Village is very small, but very quaint. Overall, a great stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2011

A small hotel in an ever smaller village on the island of Ameland. Nice rooms, not overly sophisticated, but very clean, all amenities one wold expect (except for an inroom safe). Not top class and very luxurious, but probably the best on the island. Very cosy bar. A really excellent restaurant, worth the trip if you are on the island. Nice lounge area/terrace outside. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Very good wines. Own wine shop. Try the wine tasting event. Very good combinations of nights, dinner, tasting, bike rental.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nobel - warm hart van AmelandMiddenin de kern van het authentieke dorpje Ballum, gelegen op het waddeneiland Ameland, met haar eeuwenoude huisjes en de ambachtelijke straten die doen denken aan de tijden van weleer, is de gastvrijheid van Nobel meer dan 100 jaar een begrip. Al sinds vier generaties staan de Nobels dag en nacht klaar voor gasten, gastvrijheid stroomt hen door het bloed. De geschiedenis is nog steeds goed voelbaar, maar Nobel is met zijn tijd meegegaan. Geschiedenis en moderne luxe gaan hier hand in hand.Nobel staat voor ‘genieten'. Want genieten, dát kunt u bij ons op meervoudige wijze! Naast ons gezellige Café, waar de sfeer van vroeger nog voelbaar is, is Nobel een Hotel met moderne design kamers. Nobel Restaurant is een culinaire belevenis. Natuurlijk bent u pas echt op Ameland geweest, als u hét Nobeltje heeft geproefd. In onze Slijterij kunt u, naast het Nobeltje, een keur aan mooie wijnen en whisky's proeven en kopen. Om thuis nog even het gevoel van puur genieten vast te houden!Hotel Nobel heet u van harte welkom op het schitterende Ameland. ... more   less
