“Great setting and base for exploring surrounding area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We spent four nights here over July/August. The hotel is set in very pleasant surroundings. The suite was huge, with fantastic views of the lake, including glorious sunsets on a couple of occasions. The staff were extremely polite and helpful throughout our stay. We did not eat here as we preferred to travel out, but did make use of the relaxing bar area on a couple of occasions. You need your own transport to make the most of this location, but with a bit of planning it is not too difficult to get to the nearest station to catch the train to Amsterdam. In addition Utrecht, Edam, Gouda and Haalem are all within reach and worth visiting by car. Would definitely look to stay here again next time we are in Holland.

My family spent three nights here in July 2013 and it was an extremely relaxing stay, the family suite on the 7th floor had a spectacular view of the lake. This is a place to go if you cycle, sail, or like long walks. The hotel is fine, breakfast is great and the place is pleasant, except housekeeping did not vacuum and the carpets needed it.
We did not eat dinner at the hotel but there is a great deck overlooking the marina where steaks can be had. Upon traveler recommendations we ate at Der Haven Van Huizen and the food and service were both excellent, especially if the weather is good and the seating on the deck by the canal is open.
As a family, the hotel has no special arrangements or entertainment for children but do bring a beach chair and beach toys so kids can play on the lake, if not necessarily swim (the water has some blue-green floating algae that may bother some kids).

Room Tip: As for rooms overlooking the lake.

Hotel with a great view to the bay in very quiet place. We stayed 3 days in here for Keukenhof Tulip festival and 4th time Amsterdam trip. Overall its not bad.
Rooms are unusually big for European hotel. Bathroom has a tob , shower and separate toilet depends on which size of room you book. It was cold when we arrived but after turning on the heater which is under a bedroom windows bathroom floor was warm.
They charge for adaptors so don't forget to bring yours. Also if your device is too strong bathroom won't work so what I did was I plugged in my hair straightener and dryer to the corner in a bedroom next to a big mirror.
Bed is an average not too hard .

I WAS DISSAPOINTED about a smell in the room even carpets looked new and room and the hotel was non smoking. But this smell is constant and its like unwashed armpit or weeds smell. So don't suggest it for people with allergies, my husband suffered a lot especially after a tulipfest.

All soft furniture was very very filthy and dirty full of spots and hair??? Towels were rough and used trillion times like a mop but it doesn't bother me since I carry my own.

Breakfast is overpriced 17.50 for person which explains free parking dilemma. Nothing fancy average breakfast which is 7 or 8 € in Amsterdam.

Staff is helpful and fast.

They have an Indonesian restaurant we didnt eat there.

Do not order Italian dish in hotels restaurant. Salmon was from can and tagliatelle was dry, tasteless.

Nightlife sucked!

We decided to not come back until our retirement because everything was in driving area and pretty far from hotels location.

Dear Zhyldyz B,

Thank you for staying in our hotel. It is nice to hear that you liked the room. We are constantly working on improving our hotel. Your comments were that you had to pay to use an adapter but it only was a guarantee and you get it back when the adapter is returned to the reception.

Also very sorry about the scent in the room and we concluded that someone next to your room had been smoking in the room before you got into it. We introduced a new smoking policy and when you ignore it you will be warned and fined, so things like this won't happen anymore.

The towels are will be replaced next week with organic, so you don't need to bring your own next time.

We have discussed the quality of the food and a new menu will be introduced soon. From next week food will be prepared on the barbeque on the terras.

Kind regards
Nicole S. Lagas

This is a strange place full of contradictions
First oneif these is that it has probably the largest rooms ever: double,bed is nice and it even has a noce kitchenette whic can be handy for tose staying longer. However, the carpet is filthy, bathroom is cold and towels look like they have been in service,for longer than they should have, if ever they were nice and fluffy, that ,ust have been a very long time ago! all idea of comfort the room gives quickly goes away.

The bar area is nice and overlooks the lake but the staff is really not keen and on the nights i have been therre recently they were regulalry stocking the bar rather than serving customers.

Breakfast is ok and with large variety of choice - overpriced, though

There os free parking and nicetoich to,have fragrances to tr while checking in /out.

There used to be a spa in the hotel but not any more

Agree with many of the comments - great location, lovely view, staff and service good but the room was massive but a little tired. Especially when compared to the reception which is very nice. All in all a good stay but room could have been better.

The arrival was the low point. There had been recent snow and frost and the parking space was really dangerous. Only the steps to the entrance had been cleared and the reception staff (who had nothing to do; the hotel was almost empty) implausibly said that the municipality was responsible.
Our room was spacious and the view over the water was stunning. The bathroom had the peculiarity that there was a huge threshold (about 25 cm.) to climb over in order to get into the shower and descend on the other side. .
The breakfast was excellent.
The entrance hall suffered from gigantism and was furnished in the same vein.

Dear Pieter, Thank you very much for your review. We are sorry that during your stay we where not able to clean all 150 free parking places. With the snow of this weekend we managed to make a path to enter the hotel very easy. Its nice to hear the you enjoyed the excellent breakfast and the nice view.
