Stayed 3 nights at this hotel.
Location - 3 minutes from the beach. Right in the centre of the small village of Bergen aan Zee. We flew to Schipol, Train to Alkmaar and no 6 bus from Alkmaar station stops right outside the hotel. ( 30 mins 2.90 e per person)
Hotel - on arrival on a thursday evening, the bar was buzzing - people sat around playing cards, music on jukebox and restaurant fairly full - this made for a great atmosphere.Hotel is clean and tidy in a traditional dutch style .
Room - we had room 40 - 3rd floor. Not a room but a suite. Gorgeous. Massive panoramic windows open on to a big balcony with sunloungers and table and chairs overlooks the dunes at back of hotel. Partitioned off double bedroom with good storage. Living area with sofa, table and chairs. Big bathroom - walk in shower , seperate bath ( whirlpool). View of beach from balcony and window. Room has kitchen facilities - fridge, dishwasher,cooker etc but strangely no crockery/cutlery - we could have asked for some but werent bothered. Room serviced daily - clean towels etc. Cracking room at 140 e a night
Food - breakfast is atypical all you can eat buffet - eggs,ham .cheese, fruit bread, cereals etc. We ate in dining room 1 night - a la carte food was first rate. They do a daily cheaper meal which looked good.
Staff - very friendly, happy to talk to us and all spoke english even though its mainly dutch/germans who frequent bergen aan zee. We had a slight emergency which necessitated getting to bergen ( 5k away) and the manager insisted on driving us there, waiting for us and bringing us back. A real star.
Summary - a great , friendly hotel in a lovely beach location - bergen beach is great.
