“Marvelous location just behind the beach but too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Marvelous location just behind the beach. Comfortable room in a spacious and good hotel. Friendly staff. Breakfast excellent with a good choice of cold and hot food. We had a dinner in the restaurant during the evening. It was a good experience but there was nobody in the bar during all the evening. Nice swimming pool inside but the wellness center is a little "cold". In conclusion, a good hotel but not a good value for money : we expected more for the price we paid.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Great location next to the dunes and a short walk to the beach, which was cold and very windy but beautiful. We had a top floor suite with a view of the dunes and ocean and it was lovely. Staff was friendly, warm and professional. Lots of inviting spots to hang out in the hotel and a range of restaurants. The general environment spoke of a relaxing holiday and we really enjoyed our stay.

On the negative side,this was the only place we stayed in two weeks in the Netherlands that didn't include breakfast. At this price point (relatively expensive) asking another nearly 18 euros each for breakfast seemed excessive. (we didn't partake) Also, two days of breakfast were included on our bill even though we did not eat it on the first morning and were actually checking out before it was served on the second morning. This was rectified, of course but, still, check your bill carefully.

Room Tip: If you can manage to pay the price, the top floor suites facing the dunes are excellent!

nicely situated in the dunes of de Koog, Texel, Holland
overloaded interiot, included too much furniture in the rooms
no airco, no minibar, no slippers, no bathrobe
nice breakfast, small portions at dinner, fine dining much too expensive
ridiculously high drink prices
small swimming pool
in general : to expensive, impersonal cold, too many pretensions for no reason

Room Tip: all rooms are too expensive, try a room to the forest side

There is a special atmosphere in the Texel Island and the Grand Hotel Opduin is a fine special hotel in it. The food in the hotel is of very high quality, rooms are very big and well equipped. The entire design of the hotel is very special and staff were very friendly and helpful. This is certainly a hotel which is worth traveling for, even to a remote location such as Texel.

Room Tip: Higher floor - better view.

We stayed in this hotel for one night and had a junior suite which was very large and nicely furnished. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and attentive. We ate in the hotel restaurant and the food was a high standard and the service was excellent. the breakfast was expensive but worth every penny, a chef to make you eggs and a very good selection of fresh local produce. The champagne was a nice extra. The hotel location right on the edge of the dunes is wonderful and also only a 5 minute walk to the busy centre of De Koog. My only complaint is that the single beds are a bit of a dissapointment and maybe there should be a choice available, but on the whole a superb hotel.

This hotel is a golden oldie. With a very long hotel tradition, the current owner does his best to please his guests. Nice rooms, well apppointed, but with two single beds pushed together romance is not the main attraction :-).
Restaurant is OK, service a bit understaffed so be prepared to wait for your drinks.
Breakfast buffet is quite good.
Generally, if you like to stay in a typical luxurious family hotel, this is certainly a good choice.
On the down side; DOGS!!!! Terrible tail wagging golden retrievers that push their wet nose in your bowl of peanuts. And then, as if nothing happened, the owners disappear.
