On leaving my year out to study in Holland I spent a night for the first time in a five star hotel with my partner. On arrival, we got a nice greeting and were impressed with the plush surroundings. But when we got into our room it looked like luxury had been left at the bottom floor!
Our room was a twin bed pushed together, ok we had an ensuite bathroom but there was nothing plush about it and certainly not the room. It had a tv which we'd to pay for on topof the expensive price of the room. Breakfast we had to pay extra for too! We took solace in the swimming pool which was nice.
I was absolutely gutted to see that room. I had hoped to spend a night of decadence in it before returning to the UK. Fat chance!
They say on the whole Dutch hotels are very basic. I'd give this a five star for being just that! BASIC
It wouldn't get a five star in the UK that's for sure...
