The staff were absolutely excellent and faultless throughout, on arrival we were greeted with complimentary champagne and cakes, and when we left the staff printed us out a train timetable for us to get back to the Hook of Holland.
We were lucky to get a room in the farmhouse, which was a 5 or 10 minute walk from the main hotel. Everything about the room was perfect, it was a big room filled with vintage and antique mahogany furniture; and unlike the other traditional farmhouses, it had big (and nicely beamed) ceiling, which was a welcomed relief for me!

We hired bicycles and a whisper boat from the hotel, both were fairly priced and cheaper than many of the other places.
The only negative thing was the distance from the centre of Giethoorn, it was about a 30 minute walk for us. Also on the first day we were not entirely sure how to actually get there, but the hotel kindly supplied us with a walking map the next day. Nonetheless the walk into Giethoorn was beautiful and we saw the canals and thatched farmhouses (the reason we stayed in Giethoorn) If the walk is too much and you are without a car, the number 70 bus stops outside the hotel every 30 minutes and runs into the centre in next to no time.
