“Excellent and surprising dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

We had a wonderful evening with excellent food and wine. The service was warm, friendly and personal.we very much enjoyed the locally grown baby vegetables and hand caught fish. Highly recommended. Heel veel dank voor een prachtige avond!

The hotel is actually a bit hard to find if you dont know where it is. It does not look as a hotel from the road. We passed it twice but also because they were building. The hotel is increasing its capacity with a underground garage and more rooms.
The rooms are very large, very clean and the food with the service is stunning.
A very nice place where the owner is personally involved in the running of the hotel and takes care of you.
A tip for everyone that want to stay central but peacefull and in a "Silent" place.

We went to Merlet just at the beginning of spring. The nice surroundings, a bike ride to the sea, the charming town and to the bike paths through the dunes makes it a destination itself. The suites are by topics, we had the "Heidesuite" which was like being in a strawberry field, charming and enchanting, with great view over the fields. The food is very good, we really enjoyed the chef menus.

Room Tip: The themed suites are great!

Just back from 4 night stay at Luxury country hotel 45mins north of Amsterdam, near the sand dunes, forest and waterways. Hotel is called MERLET in a small village called Schoorl.
The hotel has a Michelin star restaurant and 7 different suites as well as standard rooms. If staying for more than 1 night go for the suites -they have everything and each one is different in style. What to do there-free bikes to explore with great guided off road tracks. Plenty of animal life and water of course with huge beaches.
Of particular interest is the amazing garden centre in Schoorl which has a beach and many wacky things! Everywhere is spotless, incredibly well organised and a very high standard, even if a bit expensive but worth it!. With a car i would recomend the amazing old port town of Hoorn, the Edam cheese vilage, the naval museums in Den Helde. The shops and cafes in Alkmaar and Bergen are well worth a visit also. Don't be put off by everything being written in Dutch only as everyone speaks English and is very helpful and friendly
