“Needs some upgrading”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We stayed here for three nights in an apartment hotel room, downstairs a sitting room with kitchen, upstairs two bedrooms and a bathroom. Everything was fine but the hotel lacks its own unique touch and atmosphere. It looks like a building from the seventies of the last century, not bad but also not very attractive. Ameland is a small island, so you can reach everything on biking distance. Rent an electrical bike as it is always windy on Ameland.

The hotel is ideal for enjoying a weekend on Ameland. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean but dated. There is one nice pool and breakfast was nice and plentiful. The beach and the lighthouse are within walking distance. Servings at dinner were unfortunately too small.

The first time my husband took me to Ameland, to the Amelander Kaap, I instantly fell for the location and the lights of the lighthouse shining in our hotel window after sun-down. The proximity to the beach, on our rented bikes, was an attraction. And then, oh, that endless ivory beach... It has kept us coming back to Ameland over and over again - it is now engrained in our hearts. I do hope, Amelander Kaap team, that you will enjoy the results of my hard work.

This hotel is dated and I really don't think they earn a 4 stars hotel.

Our room was in bad condtion. The bed was hard. The ceiling had damage. Also the coridor and entrance are looks more like a youth hostel than a 3 or 4 stars hotel.

Breakfast was poor, only ready made products and very little choose.

Pool is nice and full of light but there are no change rooms, so you need to go to your room to change, which is ok.

Room Tip: I think a room at the end of the corridor. When we were there, there were many children and they kno...

We used this hotel to relax for a few days on Ameland and it was perfect for what we needed. The Hotel and the rooms are clean and the restaurant is also good. You can hire bikes nearby at Tweewielerbedrijf Visser. The island has good bike routes and wonderful beaches.

I attended a large conference at this hotel, and the overall impression was that time stood still for the last 20-odd years. The appartments on the ground floor are barely adequate for two people, and *very* noisy. The higher floor appartments get very warm in summer, and have no AC. Opening a window helps, with the continuous breeze on the island. However, the bedroom is in a separate en-suite room with no windows and barely gets any fresh air.
Also the conference rooms were not well equipped, the projectors were too small to serve the entire room. Though additional projectors were placed half-way, the slides were still hard to read from the back.
The only reason I still rate the hotel as average, is the good and friendly service I received, and the quality of the food, which is also very good, given that they were serving well over a hundred people at once.

Room Tip: In summer, try to get an apartment on the ground floor, they have big sliding doors, which makes it...

This place is alright if they would not charge you like a 4 star resort because they definitely are not!

They have rooms, apartments and small houses for rent. We stayed 3 nights at the actual hotel. The rooms are basic. They're clean but old and with thin walls. The TV was very small and had bad reception too.

Parking at this hotel is no problem at all. Because it's on the island Ameland most people come by boat and don't bring their car. There is a bicycle rental business near the hotel. About 5 minute walk from the lobby. You can just leave your bicycle at the hotel at a large parking spot for bicycles.

The breakfast buffet was very good. Very large variety of different kinds of bread, cereal, yogurts and juices. The coffee was bad, I have seen people order coffee at the bar and bring it with them in the breakfast area. We also had dinner at their restaurant 2 times. Both dinners were very nice. The food quality was definitely worth the stars but the restaurant setting is again basic and old.

One night we were sitting outside and got hungry at about 10:30pm. I went to ask for the food menu. The girl at the bar looked surprised somebody actually came in to order something and told me they did not offer any food at this time of day. Only drinks. The mini bar in our room only contained some chocolate bars and a small bag of chips, so this was pretty inconvenient. We went to bed hungry.

The location is alright. It's about 5 minute bicycle ride to the sea. However next time we're at Ameland we will not stay at this hotel because the town Hollum is pretty dead. I would have rather stayed in Nes which is far more alive and most tourists actually stay around this town. Nes is about 10km away from from Hollum and the Amelander kaap.
