“Great: big rooms, fantastic breakfast, lovely mini spa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

We had a great weekend out on the biggest island of the Netherlands. This hotel offers many attractive package deals. Ours came with bikes and a dinner. We have not one complaint. The rooms are huge, comfortable and clean. The breakfast area offers a lot of variety and the dinner served at the hotels' restaurant was just great. The staff well trained and the food tasted fresh and cooked with a lot of attention. Koog itself is a pretty cheap and sad small town, totally focused on (low budget) tourism. We did not like it at all, but the beach and the nature around Koog, made it possible to ignore town. We had a coffee near the hotel at a fantastic place called the Windroos run by disabled people. True value for money; biological products, real Italian coffee and all for a good cause. We also liked sipping our wines, reading magazines at a lovely small beach restaurant / hotel called Noordzee.

Very charming hotel in a splendid environment off course. Rooms are very tidy and with modern accomodation and a large, wel equipped bathroom. Service is very good and breakfast is elaborate and diverse. We also had dinner which was very nice, you get high quality for a very reasonable price. For the price you pay, you get everything you can expect from it.

We came here for a three day trip while travelling with our 11 month old daughter. The rooms are really spacious and clean. Even though it seems to be one of the best hotels (and restaurants) in town guests as well as staff were absolutely child friendly. A baby bed was ready, a toy sheep was waiting and staff was always very helpful. A nice and quite atmosphere just of the lively parts of de Koog.

A very good choice.

so our friends were surprised to end up on an island! :)

Rooms are great, except for the single beds strapped together as a double. (Dutch custom?)
The bar is great with a broad selection of local beers and a variety of snacks.
The food in the restaurant is also great, using local ingredients as much as possible. Some menus are based on that as a theme.

When we were there the receptiondesk closed on that Sunday afternoon (we don't know if this is always so) so we couldn't leave our luggage at the hotel and explore the island. Instead we went back to the "mainland" :S

We are planning to come back.

Stayed here for 4 nights, booked a nice arrangement. We had a standard room. They are big and have some great views. Some luxury rooms in the other building misses the nice views over the small lake. You can open the door from your balcony for some fresh air . The beds are normal size and just ok. We only missed the tea facilities. You can hire bikes everywhere, also the hotels have some to lent. Breakfast is certainly 9 out of 10 ! Dinner is also tasty ! But certainly not cheap!. Its 2 minutes walking to the little village and 5 to the beach.
In oktober its a easy going island , all the crowds had left and we had e great time walking and biking. Nature here is wonderful. Boat to the island cost 35 euro, they sail every hour.

We came here to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. Living in the Hague we were ready for a peaceful island break for a couple of days. We did realise things could be busy as it's peak season but did not expect to find a big top (circus tent) in the car park that our room looked on to!
The room itself was nice, we had a junior suite which was spacious with nice seating area and a large if rather plain bathroom. The balcony was also large (3m x 5m?) but again very spartan with no plants, a tiled floor and 2 loungers. I cannot really imagine anyone lingering out there as it just felt very empty, overlooked by other rooms and not relaxing.
Even if the circus left town effectively you would then overlook a large carpark and a gokarting shed which are not really vistas that you would seek out in a holiday. See attached photos.......
The water view featured in all the hotel pics is the view only from the smaller building inc breakfast area/restaurant. To have a room with this view you need to go for a smaller room the luxury rooms in the new extension all have less scenic views.
The service in the hotel was good, very friendly people but I think next time we visit one of the Dutch islands we would go for a car free one in hope of finding something a bit less built up and more rustic.
De Koog is a little charmless as well with a slight 'Torremolinos' feel . De Taveerne restaurant was excellent with nice vintage decor inside but again looked out onto a Texaco garage. Not sure what better hotel options Texel has we did cycle round the whole island and ate next to De Lindeboom which looked nice but again quite a town centre location with views of the council offices.
