Just got back from a weekend in Medemblik on the Ijslemeer inland sea in Holland. It is eight years since I last stayed here and recently the hotel has undergone a complete makeover to give it a modern new image and what a good job they have done. I can't say anything negative about this hotel. It is just lovely. It is smallish, very comfortable, clean, well located for touring North Holland and the service and staff are excellent. Like all Dutch people, they cannot do enough to make your stay a happy one. Food in the hotel is very reasonably priced, excellent quality and very, very nice. The breakfast included in our package was typical of modern European hotels and this too was very good in terms of the quality on offer. Medemblik has several very good restaurants in addition to the hotel including traditional Dutch, Greek and a variety of others.
If you do visit this area, the Hotel Medemblik is a great place to base yourself.
Medemblik is a lovely town and typical of others in North Holland such as Hoorn and Enkhuizen all of which are worth a visit. Amsterdam is only 30 minutes away by car and can also be accessed by train from Hoorn. Other villages further south such as Volendam are worth a visit but are a bit more touristy and so attract many day trippers from Holland and further afield.
