“Friendly and welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Having enjoyed a stay here 10 years ago, we booked again. The hotel is even better. We gad a really good stay. Staff could not have been more helpful. Rooms were scrupulously clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice. I could not think of anything I would wish to change about the hotel - not even the quirky stairs.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a balcony.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

This small B&B hotel is family run to a very high standard. The management and staff are friendly and most helpful. The room was as described, it was clean with all of the normal facilities. The breakfast was excellent with a good variety of food. There is no parking at this hotel but for a refundable deposit you receive a card to use at an underground car park some 250/300 metres away which is free. The only problem was the steep stairs to the first floor where our room was as they do not have a lift, apart from that they within a few metres from the road where the promenade is.

Room Tip: Discuss with their reception as they cater for all needs

Excellent location - meters away from the beach. Van Beelen is a very efficiently run B&B in Katwijk. The breakfast was good and the hosts are very nice.

One slight issue - unfortunately we had a big bag and the stairs are a bit winding. As I said though - slight issue. We would definitely stay here again.

I can also recommend the spanish resto next door!

Except for the seagulls and the odd local, Katwijk aan Zee is empty in mid November. And that's exactly what we wanted: a quiet get-away before winter starts. The hotel added the family touch. We stayed in a cosy and spotlessly clean studio and thoroughly enjoyed the buffet breakfast. Friendly staff comes as a bonus. Learning the rules of the house (no parking here but parking there, not through this door but through that one, etc. etc.) was easier than expected. We were lucky though to have quiet neighbours, as the walls are paper-thin. Although the recently opened disco round the corner wants to be heard on Friday and Saturday night, this but didn't bother us after a long day of beach-combing.

Room Tip: If you appreciate tranquility, ask a room in the side street, preferably on the top floor (no 23 or...

I was looking for a non-chain hotel and this is the best you could ask for. Fab welcome cosy room, lovely ambiance.... Really great location in a wonderful village. This is the real deal!

Room Tip: The studios on the top floor give extra space and a little kitchen.

Arrived late on a windswept January night, deciding to stay in Katwijk for the the first time (usually I stay in larger Noordwijk). This hotel offerred decent rates, but the room was tiny and cramped. Free wifi was slow, and I found the owner unhelpful with my queries. At least they gave out bags of peppermints at the end of the stay.

Katwijk itself was a sleepy town in January, with just a few locals walking around. Shops were open late, so good for a stroll. But there's little to do without a car to get you around. I'll be staying in Noordwijk again on my next trip....

We spent there only 4 days , but we did appreciate each one.

This is a very smart little Hotel, making you feel welcome right from the first minute of your stay. Mrs. Mol and her friendly crew are doing everything in order to make you feel comfortable. Hotel is very clean, the crew is cleaning everything each day..

You are offered breakfast for just € 5,00 p.person, a ridiculous sum if you consider quality and quantity and the variety of what you get.

We felt like at home and we decided to come back and stay a few days longer.

There ist just one point which might surprise you, going up to the first and second floor might be a bit difficult for elderly people as the steps are "really dutch type", i.e. quite a bit steep, but people without handycap will be gettting used to it wihin short.

We have been trying out quite a number of B&B in the Netherlands, this one is far the best, go and try it out yourself !!!
