With our two sons, 13 and 8 we didn't want to stay in Amsterdam proper, and this property fit the bill perfectly. We had family room 216 with bunk beds that had a great view out the window (though not of the water since we were on the backside of the new building).
Reading previous reviews let me know my parking options were their €10/night secured lot or parking at the edge of the village on the street. I chose the secured parking and have included a photo to show how nice it is.
We ate dinner at their restaurant the first night after having drinks on the beautiful pier. I thought the food was good, the service friendly and not overpriced, considering there are NO other restaurants for kilometers around.
This property is a close drive over to the Zeeburg Park and Ride, which was a great and inexpensive (€8 for parking and round trip) way to get into Amsterdam without risking messing up my rental Golf amidst all the trams, motorists and cyclists in the City.
Breakfast the first morning was a bit off...I had a dirty juice glass that was never filled, however we did get coffee and delicious hot chocolate for the kids. The next morning, orange juice found its way into the glass. My 8 year old, not familiar with European breakfasts quipped at the meat and cheese tray, "Is this our breakfast, or do we have to order yet?"
Alas, no eggs, despite their being a whimsical chicken coop in the garden area. There were also stray cats about that the kids enjoyed interacting with. There's also a small playground adjacent.
All in all, although twice the price of other hotels we stayed at...it is Amsterdam after all and it was a nice break from the run-of-the-windmill Novotels etc. that we stayed at on other nights during our little Benelux roadtrip, and I would not hesitate to stay here again.
