“Cosy hotel with great staff and huge rooms.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2010

I stayed at this hotel on a coach trip visiting Amsterdam. It is a fair way out of the city centre (around an hour's drive but 40-45mins on the public transport, bus 100, which is about a 5 min walk from the hotel). The hotel looks quite small from the outside but the inside is very big. It's very cosy and 'olde worlde,' with lots of clogs and vintage decor in the lobby. The rooms are very big and all are adapted for disabled guests, with raised toilets, rails, shower room and lots of room etc.

The staff are very friendly and the hotel owner's wife is very helpful and will give you bus times etc. I didn't eat dinner there but breakfast was lovely - a selection of cheese and cold meats, fruit, yoghurt, bread, crackers, waffles, jam and spreads etc, tea, coffee etc.

There's not much to see from what I can tell in De Rijp but the hotel is very cosy and comfortable with lovely staff and good food. Not an ideal choice if you want to be central and see lots of Amsterdam but if you feel confident with tackling the dutch public transport or have access to transport then it's easy to get into the city and see all you want! Would definitely recommend.

This hotel is pretty new and a bit of a hidden gem .It is situated about an hours drive from the centre of Amsterdam but it may be quicker and easier to use the local bus service, number 100 bus stops very close to the hotel, as the public transport has designated buslanes it takes 40 mins to reach Amsterdam central station.
Back to the hotel, its own webpage does not do it justice. The friendly and helpful staff and fresh and tasty food make it a comfortable stay.Try the hot chocolate with cream or big selection of teas.
Wheelchair users should have few difficulties as there is a large lift and plenty of ground floor rooms with patio doors onto the terraces. The whole ground floor is open plan and on one level and the lounge has comfortable seating and plenty of room to move.The bedrooms have wide doors, are themselves roomy 35x40m2, with walk in showers, handrails and adjustable beds from which you can if you so wish, watch BBC1!
The village of De Rijp is a 10 minute stroll and is very "olde worlde".
The owners wife is British and will be only too keen tohelpyou with getting around the area and things to see and do locally.
I stayed with my 12 year old and she thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would gladly travel there again.
