“Friendly hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2010

We stayed two nights in hotel Oepkes. Very friendly staff who were very willing to help. Good atmosphere in this hotel. Basic, clean room on the first floor with decent beds and a large but outdated bathroom. The hotel is located in the centre of Terschelling West and near the habour.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2007

Really nice location in the middle of the lovely town of West Terschelling. The room was quite small and smartly decorated, all the staff were really friendly and helpful, and the breakast was okey dokey. There's usually a computer terminal hidden away somewhere where you can access the internet for free if you ask them where it is.

Because the hotel is about 3 minutes walk from the ferry terminal, there's no need to take your car to the island. Its much cheaper to leave it in the long term ferry carpark in Harlingen. There's a place right near the hotel to rent bikes. The island has lots of good cyclepaths. Be careful on a windy day... the wind normally comes from the west. We cycled eastwards right to the other end of the island thinking it was really easy and then realised its much more strenuous cycling back against the wind. Admittedly this was the first time I'd ridden a bike since I was about 12 years old.

The beach cafe in West Terschelling was a good place to eat and watch the sunset, and there's a nice restaurant in the town with witches and spooky stuff all over the outside. Can't remember the name of it, but the food was great! One warning... there's a 1950's American Diner called the Heartbreak Hotel on the other side of the island which had the slowest service I've ever experienced!
