3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We, family of 4,our twindaughters of nine and mom and dad ,stayed for 2 nights in this Hotel.We requested 2 connecting rooms but they gave us to the delight of our girls 2 seperate rooms!Room 30 and 31.
This hotel is a 'period' hotel allthough not sure which period.
Our rooms were spartan and cleanish but we slept good and the sober bathroom gave us good showers.
The hotel might appear run down to some (my wife thinks so) and charming to others (moi)
Service is okay allthough some of the staff should look for another job where they are not exposed to public.
Allthough there is plenty of restaurant choice on the island we dined twice in the hotel and the food was good (try the lemon soles) and value for money.
Shortly! probably this hotel is the best the island can offer.
All in all we had a great time,the island is beautiful and we had perfect weather.
When we come back we will most certainly dine in the hotel's restaurant but will try to find another place to sleep.

Lovely place to stay in this old-style hotel with good atmosphere, adequate rooms and restaurant for good breakfast and nice evening meals. The island is full of nice beaches and dunes, so walking around freshes your mind.

Back in time hotel,with a really good atmosphere. You don't need to spend a lot of time in your room when you are on the island.
No loud music into the restaurant, sometimes a guest plays on the piano.
Dinner is great with good food in the most beautiful diningroom on the islands, lovely services and nice prices.
I, ve been here twice into the hotel for a weekend to stay. But each time when i am on the island i am going to eat into the restaurant into the hotel.

Before rating this hotel I have questioned myself a lot about which rating I should give it. On the one hand (the restaurant: dinner, breakfast, terrace outside) it is great and on the other hand (the rooms) it is poor. As I love sleeping and really value a nice bathroom with a good shower with sufficient water coming out of the showerhead I probably will never come back here, but looking at the service and the nice (nothing fancy) food you get here there are a lot of restaurants and hotels that can learn a thing or two from this place.

The waiters and staff are very attentative to anything you ask for or also not even ask for. The service during meals and also on the terrace outside is just outstanding. Quick, flawless, great knowledge, some excellent wines at very fair prices, Great !

The rooms however are disappointing in my opinion, the beds are small (width), the room does not feel comfortable and the mix of things that are in it does not give you a comfy feeling. Really if you just want to sleep it is fine, but do not expect anything else over that. Don't think about spending 2 hours in your room reading or so... The bathroom is very basic and the shower has problems producing water, but outside of that everything is clean and you will have plenty towels.

Last but not least the price is very fair and reasonable, we choosed for half board and were not at all disappointed pricewise, however if the rooms would be a little bit upgraded and made a little bit more cosy and warm then I would have no problem paying more (and would probably come back here more often). However it is fully booked now also around the year, so probably there is not much of a drive or necessity to do it. Which is a shame according to me.

A weekend was a sort of a pleasure with the special atmosphere and the outstanding service, so we took the rooms for granted, you will sleep anyway after a day biking and some drinks on the terrace, but I would not have stayed longer than that.....

Room Tip: Ask for one of the renovated rooms and ask for a room on the backside which is more calm, the rooms...

We booked this hotel because we read good reviews about it. And they are right. Already the bus service from the ferry is very convenient. It was raining and most of the people had to go with the paid bus (which was very full) while we had plenty of space to sit. Check-in was very quick, we just got the key and that was it. The hotel is very old, but the rooms are adequate. Anyway, you don't need to spend a lot of time in your room when you are on Schiermonnikoog.

Breakfast was very good, would definitely go there again.

Lovely dutch old fashion "brown" hotel. No fancy rooms, simple beds, bathroom, table, chairs, closet and tv. best way to describe the rooms is "cute".
Very dutch cold breakfast, (bread, yoghurt, fruit). I was little dissapointed there was no toaster and no cappuchino (just plain coffee or Black tea).
Dinner is great, lovely service when being served by the older men. good daily menu's with a lot of side dishes.
