“Poor hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was ok, but really nothing special. The hotel is old and you can see that. Unfortunate for us the indoor swimming pool is also not open anymore (we specially booked it for the swimming pool). The rooms were very big, with two nice lounge chairs. If I do not like something, then it is beds on wheels, specially when they are on the wooden floor and not on carpet for example, so the beds were not stable. But the beds slept very well.The shower and bathroom were good (no tub). Also the room was clean. No balcony in our room. Did not eat or drink in the hotel. There are some snack/drinks on our room, but nobody eats that (almost everything was expired). For elderly people or with little children for example, it's quit a walk to the beach. But you can rent bikes or scooters. Staff was friendly. The price is not high and you can see why.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2010

Callantsoog seemed to me to be a rather dated little seaside resort - not exactly throbbing with nightlife, but that may be your kind of thing. This hotel, formerly the Tulip Inn, is a good 15 minute walk from the centre down some residential streets.

It has a reasonable sized pool, and a sauna which costs extra. Restaurant food was good for dinner and there was an okay continental breakfast. Beware of the charge card system - the restaurant would not accpet money for drink at 10pm, they had to be put onto a scribbled "charge card" which was not helpful for those trying to keep a record of how much they were spending and meant a long queue to pay the next morning. The bar was sometimes understaffed as was the reception

Received opinion from the group was that rooms were okay, nothing amazing, but some had balconies facing the car park or the road and the dunes in the distance. As you would expect in the Netherlands, beds were huge and very comfy.

Overall, hard to recommend staying here.
