“Fine hotel for a night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We slept here in the beginning of september with our company trip (65 employees). Dinner was ok (not too special; buffet), service was good, kind waiters. Rooms were fine, good beds and nice balcony. 1 1/2 km walk to the beach, the hotel arranged the bicycle rental. Good value.

Good rooms, friendly staff, nice breakfast buffet style. Do not eat in the restaurant though, it is really not good enough. Menu has not changed in 2 years, actually I do not know why they are still open. Nice place to stay with kids for a weekend. Use the pool, rent some bikes, go to the sea, eat some pancakes or a pizza.

Room Tip: Family rooms with kitchenette available on ground floor, with direct access to the garden

the breakfast was really nice; and some of the staff very friendly. basically this is an ok place to put up camp if you wish to break away during the day--i.e. these are not rooms in which you wish to stay all day, but in the end they serve the purpose; bathroom a bit tiny. the double-bed was in fact two singles put together, which however seems not uncommon in holland so we cannot blame the hotel for that. location-wise this hotel is in between nes and the sea, convenient. the pool was small but despite that we had a great time with the children.

Nothing really wrong with it, reasonable rates for what you get. But views from rooms less than ravishing. Hotel's restaurant under-used mainly due to totally uninspiring menu, we thought...
Parking lot unpaved and pot-holed with gravel that's being tracked all over....
Bicycle parking-sheds over-crowded with mass-stored rental bikes and unsufficient e-bike re-charging facilities.
Swimming pool tiny and utilitarian. All in all, not a shadow of this chain's Vlieland hotel (magnificent pool, beach-front situation and views).

Nice, new hotel just outside Nes... It is half a hour walking from the ferry, but you can also rent bikes at the ferry and they arrange that the luggage is delivered at the hotel. The beach is also within walking distance, but again renting a bike is probably the best way to explore the island. Good, comfortable rooms with a balcony. Breakfast has a good choice and if the weather allows it you can enjoy it outside. A wonderful place to relax and chill out......

I've been to Hotel Noordsee a couple of times as a single parent with my 5 year old son. It conveniently located between the beautiful village Nes and the beach, both within 5 minutes by bike of 10-15 minutes walking. In case of bad weather (not unlikely), my son always enjoys the swimming pools. At this time of the year, the hotel was very quiet and accordingly we got relatively cheap rates for our room.

We stayed here for New years eve and had the new year's eve package, which I thought was quite expensive, but all holiday packages at every hotel seem to be more expensive this year, so, okay... the disappointing part was that you had to pay extra for everything!

The website mentioned that there's a swimming pool and sauna, but if you want to use the sauna you have to pay extra, and that wasn't mentioned on the website....Maybe we've been spoiled over the years, it's possible...

The receptionist didn't tell us where breakfast was served or how we could obtain everything that was in our package, how new years eve was organized, when we were expected etc. Nothing of that sort, we all had to figure it out ourselves or go back to reception to ask. They had a bit of trouble with smiling to their guests or looking them in the eyes.

It really is a family hotel, so over the holidays: expect lots of kids running around, don't expect too much peace an quietness.

The room was okay, we did find a sock from a previous guest under the bed and they were a bit avaricious with bathproducts etc.: we got 1 of each product during the whole stay, which I thought was a bit meager.

The pillows on the bed were a bit hard, but well, that's of course a matter of opinion and preference.

At the party we did not care for the coupon system, to us it felt like a way to increase prices of drinks. Also: the buffet was a bit unorganized, as if they thought up ways of presenting the food as they went along...
Breakfast was okay, but a bit strange to see the salads from the previous night on the breakfast buffet again...and again: a bit unorganized, nobody to show you to a table and nobody to help you when it seems there are no tables available.

The lobby with fireplace was nice, the bar was fully stocked which was also great. The food was okay, dessert was nice, the baththub was nice as well.

all and all we thought the price for the package was too high for what was offered.
