“Laid back helpful host!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

We arrived in Sneek in the north of Holland by motorbike, looking for accommodation. As we very quickly found, a town festival (Sneekweek) was in full swing and the first place we tried was full, and the guy didn't think we'd get a room anywhere in the town centre area.

Luckily for us, we next tried the Wijnberg in the Market place and they had one room available which we jumped at! We were given the key to an empty shop round the corner where we could keep our bike nice and secure - if we couldn't get it through the door, our host was prepared to let us keep it inside the hotel! What a nice man.

The en-suite room was large and overlooked the market place where there was street drinking and entertainment going on, (the' Heegemer Dekdweilers' were brilliant!) the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was 1st Class.

There's no doubt we'll be back in Sneek and we'll stay in the De Wijnberg again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2009

I loved this place. Hotel was perfect for us, Hotel was typical for Europe, so if your looking to get a good local feel then give this a try. Breakfast was very Dutch (which we love). Restaurant Dinner was above average, and menu had a wide choice. The staff were always happy and liked to have fun. Our stay was very enjoyable and when I return this is where I will stay. Sneek is a small but fun place with pleny of shopping and food, we rented bikes and road to other towns.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2008

We had a nice, but small room with attached bathroom (toilet, sink, and shower). For a place to shower and sleep and get a little something to eat, it was perfect. The shower was a little small, but as far as old buildings go, this was a pretty good deal. Breakfast was included and was buffet style. It was mainly pastries and luncheon meats. No elevator. Entrance to rooms is at the far end of the restaurant.

The dinner we had there was above average and after being caught in the rain, it was nice to have a warm "comfort" meal. It seemed like they brought a lot more food then we had ordered, a lot of side-dishes. We really got our money's worth.

We would recommend others to stay here.
