Stayed here very recently (Sept 2013) with a large group attending a business event in Emmeloord, and had stayed here 4 years previously so knew it was good. This hotel is spacious, and comfortable with good food (but not too expensive). Rooms are large and most or all have a private verandah. Watch out for mosquitos if your room overlooks the water. Generally this was a good base for a business group, and breakfast and dinner was very good on all days. The bar is very comfortable and drinks not outrageous. Sometimes the service was a little brusque at dinner when our group was ordering, but nothing major; probably due to misunderstandings with the ordering. There is free WiFi all through the hotel, which is great, and there is plenty of parking.
