We can only say positive things about the Hotel Graaf (Count) Bernstorff on the island of Schiermonnikoog. We booked an arrangement which included 2 nights in a luxury room or a flat, with breakfast, a bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival, a three-course dinner, two bikes, an information packet, a coffee and a Bernstorff herbal liquor. We were given a flat for five persons, so really spacious for the two of us. There was a living room with a dining and a sitting area, open plan kitchen, with plenty of cutlery, pots & pans and kitchen equipment, a built-in dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. Separate toilet. Decent bathroom with bath/shower and washbasin. Two bedrooms with comfortable beds and nice linen. Also a balcony. Other guests showed us their luxury double room, which was also spacious and very nicely furnished. Wireless internet is accessible from the lounge and library. Everything is very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a verandah which is heated on chilly days. There is a varied breakfast buffet, with plenty of good quality food. The stylish restaurant also serves excellent dishes.
A free bus shuttle from Hotel Bernstorff takes you from the ferry terminal to the hotel, which is situated right in the centre of the village. Across the street is a small but handy supermarket. We can definitely recommend this hotel and Schiermonnikoog. The carfree island (but lots of bikes!) is a unique experience. It was our second stay in this hotel, and it won't be the last.
There is no lift to the apartments, so choose one on the ground floor if you are less mobile.
