“Don´t stay here, agressive owner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2010

We stayed here on our wedding day. A perfect day untill we came at de oorsprong. We didn´t know where we would stay, it was arranged by friends. We came in the hotel at night, and were told to take the door on the side. Probably this was de wrong door, because the alarm went of. Within 2 minutes the owner arrived, shouting "Are you crazy stupids!, what were you tinking?"... Uhmm, we just took the side door.. but it wasn;t the right one. Was this our fault? Don't think so. Anyway, the owner was shouting and threating us ( he wanted to kick us out), he almost attacked me, it was very scary! Can you imagine what this felt like? I was in my wedding dress for god's sake!
Next morning, no excuses were presented, we got a bottle of wine for our wedding day, that was that. The room was nice (because our friends placed some suprises), but this hotel owner is just insane! So if you want to have a nice relaxing stay in Friesland? Don't stay here!!!

We booked through [--]

The Oorsprong is located in southern Friesland, just off the major highways but tucked away in a forested area which is quite rustic and beautiful. The hotel was quite nice, with a great restaurant (admittedly, slightly pricy -- but worth it), and a comfortable sun room which serves for the good breakfast buffet and a good afternoon cafe.

The room was large and quite comfortable. The bathroom and shower room were a bit small, but sufficient for a hotel. We went for one of the "boskamer" rooms with a private sunroom looking out into the forest -- I highly recommend this if any are available.

A few minor annoyances, which all in all didn't detract from the hotel's charm:
* the wireless internet was relatively pricey, compared to other hotels we stayed at in the Netherlands (as well as business hotels I've stayed in in the US)
* the wireless didn't quite reach my room at the end of the corridor, so I had to go into one of the public areas to use the internet to upload photos, read email, use VOIP, etc.
* some areas of the hotel could use a bit of sprucing up - minor paint touchups, etc.

In general, though, we were quite happy with our stay here. The staff were helpful, the room was comfortable and easily situated for motoring about Friesland, Overijssel, or Flevoland, and the food at the restaurant was excellent.

  • Liked — Natural ambience
  • Disliked — Internet abilities should be upgraded and cheaper/gratis.
