“Great location on the airfield, spacious room with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Fantastically situated if you are flying in to Texel for a night or two. It's a good idea to mention if you are a pilot flying in as, according to Ed and Mike who run the airport, you get a discount. The view over the airfield is great. And its quiet.

The hotel is self catering but with breakfast included. The owner discusses your order and delivers whatever you require for breakfast - bread, fruit, juice, eggs etc. He goes overboard to see that guests are happy and have everything they need. Great service and a great welcome and stay.

There is food available in the bar area but it closed fairly early so we walked about 2km to a local restaurant near the De Slufter sand dunes which was popular and excellent.

Texel, as a location to fly to, is just fantastic. So many pilots aim for Wangerooge and the other German Friesian islands, and overlook Texel. I cannot imagine why.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I have visited Texel more times than I can remember but have never stayed on the island. This time I needed to be on the island for three consecutive days so it made more sense to stay than to commute by air.

The hotel did not disappoint. The rooms (suite 9) were clean and airy. The bedroom air conditioned. The bathroom equipped with steam cabin, shower, bath, jacuzzi. The kitchen had a microwave, kettle, coffee machine and fridge. Breakfast was very good. On arrival you are asked what you want and your fridge will be stocked. Meet your requirements. Bread is delivered to the suite each morning. Pity there was no butter supplied.

The bedroom was clean and comfortable with a large double bed and patio doors leading to a large veranda with a view over the airfield. A minor criticism would be that the bed was, for my taste, a little soft - I prefer a very firm mattress.

Would I go back - absolutely. Would I recommend this hotel to others - without hesitation.

We had the suite, room number 9. Spacious livingroom with kitchenette. Simple 2 seat sofa, small diner table for four people. Spacious bathroom, including steam shower and seperate small jacuzzi. Seperate toilet. Bedroom had a small closet and airconditioning. Nice balcony with great view on the airstrip and "parking" for the planes. You can sit there the whole day watching skydivers, old planes, helicopters, etc. Breakfast was included. On arrival we where asked what we liked for breakfast. They brought the salmon, strawberries, eggs, ham, cheese, etc. the first day and put it in the fridge (all packed food). Sweet toppings, butter, jam, etc. you find in a basket in your room. Every morning they hang your selection of bread on your door. So you are not disturbed in the morning and can have breakfast at the moment you wish. Only drawback is that you have to boil your own eggs. Baking eggs is not possible due to the lack of a cooking spot.

Our experiences: PLUS: we liked the breakfast concept, great to schedule it yourself. The hotel owner - Walter - is very enthusiastic and supportive. We liked the view on the airport and the paracentre next to the hotel as we did a skydive session. When you stay at the hotel you get a 10% discount on your skydive jump.

DRAWBACKS: We missed airconditioning in the living room. The first day our room was not cleaned with the excuse that we put the "do not disturb" sign on our door, which was not the case. The hotel advertises being very hygienic, however under the bed was not cleaned well, a lot of dust. Under the closet too. Please note that it was not exceptionally dirty, just average, but if you advertise with it we expect more. If you don't want to be waken up around 8-9am in the morning by (small) airplanes taking off and/or landing: don't stay here.

This a very friendly hotel with a hotel manager is able to give a 100% service to the guests.
You have a balcony with a manifestant view on the airport of Texel. The breakfast is very personnal based on all the things you preffered and is server in your suite.

We will come back Son.

Room Tip: There are a lot of good restaurants in the neighbourhood. Topido in De Cocksdorp is a must. Vincent...

POSITIVE POINTS:
We had a nice view on the airport from the terrace. The bathroom and toilet were lovely. The rooms were very clean and with a lot of space.
NEGATIVE POINTS:
1) The beds for the children were in the living room. Missing "dark" curtains in the window located in the kitchen. Too much light for the children to fall asleep.
2) I was asked to order the breakfast at our arrival (while my husband was still parking the car). It was done too much in a rush and I didn't order enough food for 4 persons.
The owner gave us exactly what I ordered (too little). In the living room it was left some "warm margarine" (I would prefer some real butter in the fridge). The coffee was in a small bag (lyophilised).
This is my advise: make sure to order enough food at your arrival and consider to take the car and make 4 km to get some real coffee.
I would not rate this hotel with 4 stars. It doesn't meet all the requirements.

Call or email the owners for the best price. Large rooms with separate bedroom, a kitchenette, sitting area. Unique view on the runway of the airport. Very friendly staff who know what service is.
