“A Lovely Place To Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

If you would prefer a warm, welcoming, friendly B&B in a lovely area, very near Amsterdam city centre, stay here.
Collette was very efficient from booking through to departure.
Our holiday was made easier, firstly as we were met at the ferry thereby giving us time to get our bearings and then there was Collette's expert advice and comprehensive transport instructions. We didn't have to spend time researching as we were given all the information we needed or asked for. This enabled us to cram an awful lot in during our 3 day stay.
The weather was good while we were there, so we took advantage of having our breakfast in the garden which backs onto one of the many canals in the area.
Definitely recommended. We are looking forward to staying there again next year!! :)

As long as you don't want to stay in the heart of the city, this is a superb place to stay. It is about a 20-30 minute bus trip into the central train station, but Colette provides excellent assistance with all travel arrangements. The rooms are spotless and the breakfasts superb (Colette even provides bags so you can take left overs for your lunch). Colette is a very gracious host and this B&B is great value.

Colette's was a delightfully, unexpected surprise. She welcomed us and our daughter on short notice and went absolutely above and beyond to help us when we had a problem with our car rental. She is not only a terrific host, but also gave us a wealth of information about Amsterdam to get the most out of our stay, right down to where to find free parking (which is virtually unheard of here). Her rooms are very comfortably appointed and very clean and her breakfast is fresh, healthy and offers a great deal of variety. She even provided a child's bike for our daughter to use and it was here that our daughter learned to ride a bike all on her own! We will definitely stay with Colette again the next time we're in Amsterdam!

Room Tip: Rooms have a beautiful view of the patio, garden and canal.

Some people just really go out of their way to make your trip memorable. Colette, the owner of this B&B (it's actually her home) is one of those people.

Colette was like a mother to us in Amsterdam! She picked us up from Central Station and gave explicit directions about where to meet her. She welcomed us to her home and treated us like family, telling us all sorts of stories from her 30 years as a host. Each morning she sat us down and told us the best and cheapest ways to explore. She lent us prepay cards for the the public transport so we saved on fares.

The room itself was lovely. It had three single beds, an en suite bathroom, a TV with some English channels, dining table, minibar, and view over the canal. A hearty continental breakfast with cheese, ham, egg and yoghurt was brought to our room at a time convenient to us. There were only two rooms in the place, so it was all very intimate.

Colette lives in Landsmeer, which is a little way out from Amsterdam. However getting a bus into town was no problem at all. We were given clear instructions, a handwritten map and a printout of bus times. The bus would have taken 15 minutes direct if there hadn't been construction work and some diversions, and they left around every 10 minutes well into the night. Even locally in Landsmeer there was a wide selection of shops, cafes, restuarants, banks and a supermarket all within walking distance. Colette suggested hiring bicycles (bargain 8 euros at the local shop!) and going for a ride through the countryside to the fishing village of Volendam. This highlight was something we would never have considered without her expertise, and might not have happened if we hadn't stayed in Landsmeer.

All in all, an excellent B&B- more like staying in a family home, really. I cannot recommend this place enough. I hope she keeps herself well and that we get to see her again. Best wishes to the next lucky person to stay here.

Sometimes you come across a plac ewhere the person makes everything perfect. This is the case for Collette and her B&B. Colette has several immaculate rooms in her home in a lovely suburb of Amsterdam. A very short and convenient bus ride into the Central Station. The thing that makes this B&B so special is the is the knowledge and enthusiasm that Collette shares with her guests.

We loved it.

Have just returned from a wonderful stay with Colette. The location, accommodation and host could not be faulted. Previous reviews say it all; if you want excellent accommodation with en-suite facilities, a hearty breakfast in a quiet residential area then Colette's is the place for you. Colette and her husband are really nice people with a wealth of knowledge about Amsterdam which they are very happy to share. If you get tired of the hustle bustle of Amsterdam then you have a nature reserve in Landsmeer which is very nice to walk or cycle and minutes from Colette's - ask and she will draw you a map. Stay here and you will not be disappointed.

Just returned from a few days holiday at Colette's B & B. Located in Landsmeer just a short bus journey to the centre of Amsterdam. Colette is a wonderful host and is a mine of information about things to enjoy in and around Amsterdam. It is lovely having a good breakfast to start off your day. The location is close to all the city activites and the bus service is very frequent and convenient and runs until around midnight. There are excellent cycling opprtunities nearby and Landsmeer itself is charming. The rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the short journey into the city as it gives a real feeling of the Dutch lifestyle. This is the perfect place for anyone wanting to be close to Amsterdam but be able to relax in the countryside at the same time. Will definitely be returning again.
