“Lovely place to stay and relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We had concerns re The Brasserie from previous comments and unfortunately this was very disappointing service. It started well from friendly staff but then they all disappeared and we had a long wait between courses and for plates to be cleared. Not acceptable standard for a 4 star hotel.
However, the hotel room was spacious, comfortable and clean and well appointed. Re negative points,the shower was too small and air conditioning inadequate for the hot weather but otherwise no complaints.
The breakfast choice was lovely and very good reception staff. The new veranda was peaceful and a great place to relax.
We choice the wine and dine package and it was a great choice.
Overall, we were glad we chose this hotel and would return and hope service improves in the meantime.

This hotel deserves the word "grand" in its denomination. Located at the boarder of the small village, close to the seaside, it is an excellent starting point for all activities possibile on Texel. Very nice swimming pool, spa and beauty center. The breakfast buffet inlcudes everything you can immagine. The rooms are not small and have nice view, regardless the side of the building the room is. The Nespresso machine in the room makes you can drink a premium class coffee whilst enjoying the nice view from your room. The bar is very cosy.

Room Tip: all rooms have nice views and are quite

We spent quite a good time in this hotel. The room is large, well equipped, and we could rent an electric scooter to visit the Texel island. Only a part, but we know that we will go again there to continue our visit.

Very nice hotel, friendly staff, good facilities, close walk to the beach, Rooms are not that up to date and a bit messy but clean and spacious. Brasserie is very very overpriced, we had dinner there once but would not recommend it, quality is poor and prices high. Much better value for money is the beachbar nearby, they have an excellent menu, very good quality for nice prices and stunning views over the sea.

Beste Felicia,

Hartelijk dank voor het delen van uw mening over uw verblijf in ons hotel. We vinden het erg jammer dat het diner in onze brasserie u is tegengevallen. We zouden u graag bij een volgend bezoek aan Texel een diner willen aanbieden in ons hotel om u te overtuigen dat onze kwaliteit van het eten en de persoonlijke aandacht van de bediening zeker beter zijn dan die van een gemiddelde strandtent. We kijken uit naar uw reactie en hopen u nog een keer te mogen begroeten in Opduin.

Met frisse waddengroet,

Kirsten Dashorst

Grand hotel Opduin is good hotel for a break. The location is near town centre and a small walk to the beach. The interior of the hotel has different places for relaxation and with good weather you can sit outside. There are a restaurant and a brasserie. We visit the brasserie for dinner with good selection of food and service. The breakfast was served in the restaurant with a great varity of food and drinks. From the hotel you can have nice walks and a graet selection of restaurants.
Recommended to have a visit.

Room Tip: Only at the westside of the hotel you can look over the dunes to the sea

We went for a short retreat, my husband, our five years old son, my heavy pregnant belly and I. We were given a corner junior suite. The view in dunes and sea was breathtaking, the sunset as spectacular as one probably can dream. Room was clean, full of light and very spacious. Staff was friendly, most helpful and children friendly. The pool is somewhat small but clean and fresh towels are constantly available.
Food at the French restaurant was delicious while at the bistro a little disappointing. The difference between the two restaurants is quite big for such a relatively small place. Service quality at the bistro was also poor while at the restaurant one sole Maitre treats the guests like royalties. We would recommend to pay the 10 euros more and only dine at the restaurant.
Breakfast is SUMPTUOUS!!!
Highly recommended!!!!
