“Cosy place with amazing hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We were visiting Texel off-season, in February. We booked a room with sauna and bubble bath, not sure what the winter weather would bring. It turned out to be a brilliant choice - the room was bright, tastefully decorated, and seemed recently renovated. It was exceptionally clean. The sauna and bubble bath were new and could fit two people.

Despite the windows facing the road we could barely hear the cars passing by. The room had a door leading to the terrace which (I imagine) could be a really nice place to sit around in the warm spring sun.

The breakfast provided by the hotel was by far the best I've had in a while: wide choice was topped by freshly baked (still warm) bread.

The most remarkable part, though, was the hospitality of the hosts. Because we arrived early in the day, they also made the room ready earlier. They even added an extra heater in the room just in case we needed it (despite the weather we did not). They were nice and chatty, asking about our day on the island and seemed genuinely interested in our answers. They offered advice on sights and lots of information about the island. We felt extremely welcome, and will definitely stay at the same hotel when we return to Texel.

One last note, after reading other reviewer's comments on the steep price - I think what we paid for the room with own sauna, bubble bath and sun shower was fair - after all, it was a small luxury.

This is a pretty nice base for a lovely visit to the island of Texel. The owners were very welcoming and certainly know the definition of hospitality. The hotel is clean and well laid out. The rooms may be a little on the small side for my liking but that is a common problem with hotels the world over. There was a unique sauna/standard shower combination cubicle in our room; we used the sauna for the novelty value and found it refreshing. The room lacked for nothing of the usual essentials travellers need. Breakfast was above average in variety and quality for The Netherlands.
The whole island is most enjoyable and this is one of the major towns with a good number and variety of attractions, so I can recommend staying here for good value for money.

This hotel has such raving reviews, not only on TripAdvisor but also on a couple of other review websites, so I really hate to be the one to bring down the rating. However, perhaps because of those wonderful reviews, we had such high expectations of the hotel that we were disappointed when we stayed there in May 2012. We had a 'standard' room.

Let's start with the positive points:
- Delicious breakfast with freshly baked bread
- Convenient location near main shopping street of the Koog and restaurants, with bicycle rental shop nearby
- Friendly and pleasant service by the owners
- Free parking within hotel compound
- Coffee/tea-making facility in the room

Why we were disappointed:
- The room is rather basic and the 'double bed' is actually made up of two adjoining single beds
- The bed is too soft
- The decoration of the room is a little dated and 'homespun'
- The 'bathroom' is actually integrated into the room as one open space, i.e. the shower cabin and basin are almost right next to the bed, with no dividing wall for privacy. It wasn't a problem for us but travellers who aren't comfortable with showering in the presence of other people may want to check if there are other types of rooms available before booking.

I agree with the reviewer RT1971 that the owners try hard but not sure it deserves a top TA rating. In my opinion, I would consider this a basic and clean B&B and nothing more.

Very friendly and helpful service. We stayed in one of the appartments (courtyard facing) which was clean, comfortable and pretty well equipped, with enough space for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 small kids). Car parking was also right behind the hotel.

We found the location ideal for exploring the island by car, with the beach easily walkable within 15-20 minutes and the small town with numerous restaurants and bars (most kid friendly) reachable within 5 mins.

The only very slightly negative point would be that the beds in our appartment were *really* soft which was not ideal for back support. But this really is a luxury moan ;-) and may even suit some people anyway.

All in all we would recomend the hotel |(appartments) as a good place to stay for families.

Our family of four had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Kogerstaete. Our room was clean and spacious but expected based on the reviews here. We had a courtyard facing room so we weren't affected by noise from the street. It was the personal and sincere service of the hotel owners, Dirk and Jeanet, that impressed us very much. When we checked in, noticing that we came a long way from Singapore, Dirk took time to tell us more about Texel and the things to do there. Jeanet brought a toy for our two young boys to play with and made sure we were comfortable. When we left behind our younger son's stuff toy dog which is his must-have bedtime toy, Dirk and Jeanet post it back to us at our parents' house in Gronningen within a day. We were very grateful for their thoughtfulness. The location of Hotel Kogerstaete is ideal. It's walking distance to the beach and the centre of De Koog where there are supermarkets and nice family friendly restaurants like Quinty's. Texel is a great place to visit for famiies living in the city that want to experience green open spaces, fresh air and wonderful family bonding activities such as fruit-picking, candle making, trekking in nature reserves, cycling etc. We highly recommend Hotel Kogerstaete for families.

It's a nice place and the owner tries - but I'm not sure it deserves a top Trip Advisor rating. It's on a main street that is very busy. At 3 am people spilling out of the bars woke us up and then at 07:30 am all the cars going by made a heck of a lot of noise. Perhaps its better if the room faces the courtyard - so make sure you ask for one of those. Also -I thought it was very overpriced for what you got - although the room could have slept 4 people so perhaps it's better for that. If you are coming for a romantic weekend for two - this is not the place. For a larger group- probably a decent place. The location close to town is great but the city is small and if you rent a bike other places are just as accessible.
