“Very nice, good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Though the rooms are nothing really special (but clean), the food is excellent! Both dinner and breakfast. Service is friendly. A good place to stay when visiting lovely Friesland (the planetarium is fanstastic!!!)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

If you are staying in Franeker for any reason, make sure you eat here - the food is absolutely delicious! The service is also excellent.

Breakfast was also good with an above average selection of foods available.

The bedrooms however leave a little bit to be desired - they date back to probably the 1950's with paper-thin walls which bend when you lean against them! I could hear every movement of the person in the room next-door to me for example - luckily it was a colleague so I could have a laugh with them about it but it could be difficult if not!

The bathroom (thankfully) is not only more modern than the bedrooms but also more soundproofed!

The road noise is also very loud with vibrations every time a lorry goes past which woke me up several time so be prepared - it feels like the floor is rattling.

Having said that, for one night it was absolutely fine and I wouldn't have missed the food in the restaurant - it really was spectacular and very reasonably priced.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2010

Value for money this is a great little place to stay for a night. The rooms are fairly basic but the location is very good for visiting the Old Town, literally across the canal. Our room was quite small but adequate with a decent shower and toiletries. Value for money as it was one of the cheaper Hotels we stayed at. The best part was the restaurant, situated right over the canal. It served very good food with a good wine list too. Breakfast wasn't very much but then neither was the price we paid for B&B.
