“Great place to stay in Katwijk, but for WiFi access”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

I have stayed here 10 days each July for the last 3 years and have found it to be delightful in all aspects but one, and that is their very spotty WiFi reception. They advertise WiFi, but each year I have found that it is intermittent at best and often simply unavailable. They have a router in their office across the street and remote to their brown and blue rooms so that one must go outside into the street to get good reception. They have repeatedly promised for years to improve their WiFi system, and unfortunately have not done so, so if you need reliable WiFi service, ask if they've upgraded their system since July 2014 and go elsewhere if they haven't.

Their rooms are clean, their staff very friendly, their breakfasts superb with fresh squeezed orange juice, egg, bread, jam, coffee, cheeses and meats, fresh fruit. The rooms are clean and reasonably priced. Location is unbeatable.

Room Tip: Walls are a little thin, and sounds carry to other rooms a bit. Service other than WiFi is excellen...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Katwijk aan Zee is a quiet seaside village, without the bustle of neighbouring Noordwijk. With almost every room booked due to the Keukenhof flower exhibition in Lisse, we ended up at the B&B aan Zee.

After a hearty welcome from the owner, we managed to get our suitcases up the extremely narrow stairs. Lucky us, staying on the first floor: the children had to work their way up an extra flight. Our room was clean, but could definitely use a lick of paint. Excellent beds though, even for a back patient like myself. The shower drain seemed to suffer from a slight blockage, which caused the occasional flooding of the bathroom. Good to know if you arrive on a Sunday or after shop hours: no complementary shower gel or shampoo, just the hand soap.

Breakfast was delicious, with various types of fresh bread and buns and freshly squeezed orange juice. Pity we discovered that not all the cups were 100% clean. We also didn't understand why nobody thought of ironing the table linen. Nevertheless, the service was very good.

Room Tip: Do not venture beyond the first floor with big or heavy suitcases!
