We stayed at the Landhotel Legemeer for 2 nights.
It is beautifully located in the country side, right across from an 18-hole golf course.
Small towns like Sneek and Joure can easily be reached by bike.
Its location is however also its downfall : there is a cow farm close by and because of this the hotel was infested with flies. In your room, in the restaurant, around the swimming pool,... absolutely everywhere. They are aware that there is a problem as the hotel guide in the room mentioned that every room had an insect screen and electric fly swatter, but they where nowhere to be found. In the end we went to the supermarket to buy an insect spray to keep the flies out.
The outside of the hotel itself is built in a modernish, rather unpersonal style, but inside the decoration is much nicer and welcoming. We upgraded to a luxury room (room n°14) as it promised a balcony or garden. Unfortunately this looked out on the car park, which was rather a shame. The room itself is a good size and has a very comfortable bed. However, a large part of the room was taken by a very big glass desk, relegating the two comfortable chairs to a corner, which seemed quite unnecessary as this is clearly not a business hotel.
Also, the room was starting to show clear signs of wear and tear. The bath tap had a piece missing and overall the room and bathroom could have been a little bit cleaner.
The room did not have air conditioning or a safe (remember this is a 4 star hotel). The hairdryer was missing, but reception quicly got us another one.
The hotel has a swimming pool and tennis court. The heated pool was very warm but there are only five lounge chairs for the whole of the hotel. There is a sauna, but as we didn't use it, I can not comment on it.
Breakfast had only a limited choice but this was made up by the excellent quality. We ate at the restaurant for 2 nights in a row and overall the food was very good, altough a little pricey.
Finally the staff : everyone of them really tried to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. They were friendly and helpfull. A special mention goes out to the girl at the reception who was really nice and made us laugh.
Overall this is a good hotel but with a little bit more attention to detail it could become an excellent one.
