“good, small beach hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

200 m from the beach, family run, nicely decorated - our ground floor room had a full kitchen and large terrace into the dues; free WLAN and free parking. The restaurant is directly at the beach. Perfect for long walks or bicycle-riding.

Room Tip: take a room with view to the dunes, otherwise it might be noisy

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The hotel is a 5 minutes walk from the beach and close to fascinating dunes and a nature reserve. A small cluster of a dozen holiday houses, etc… surrounds the building.

The aprox. 20 Mile (30Km) long ( North-South) nature reserve known as the Schoorlse Duinen has amazing scenery, fauna, and flora. Roads and hiking paths are well kept and signposted.
During the season, there is a wide range of restaurants (Strandpaviljoen) available on the beach and one at the centre of the reserve (The Berenkuil – only small snacks and beverages available)

The hotel has limited (free of charge) car parking space, but opposite the hotel there is public parking that can be booked in advance on the Camperduin site. Rate: 3,5 Euro per day.

The building itself is small, with typical Dutch architecture - only 2 floors including the ground floor, and has a total of 26 rooms. No elevator. The majority of the rooms are tiny and most of them give the impression they recently had a light (though in our opinion unfinished) refurbishment.
We found the hotel basic but very clean.
Odd numbered rooms have a great polder view and get the evening sun.
Even numbered rooms get the morning and noon sun and have a view of the dunes. Ground floor rooms have a small terrace with a table and 2 chairs.
In the rooms you find: some rooms with a 15 inch CRT TV others with a small flat screen TV, a non-functioning telephone, tea and coffee making facilities, and a free of charge safe in the small wardrobe. Most of the rooms have a walk-in shower with a few amenities (soap dispenser in the shower, shower cap etc…). The room doesn’t have a fridge, but cool beverages can be bought at the self-service fridge next to the reception.

The beds have good linens and rather soft mattresses.

A free of charge computer is available in the hall.
Excellent free wifi throughout the hotel.

The table-served breakfast was fine, with bread, biscuits, cheese, cold cuts, jam, eggs, fresh orange juice etc… There is a very quaint outdoor breakfast terrace with (only) a few tables.

The hotel restaurant is next to the beach and therefore you have to walk a short distance to have a meal. Limited choice of dishes on the menu. Absolutely charming service and great views.

There is a small 2-person sauna & a steam cabin in the basement at 17,5 Euro per session.

On the hotel internet site, the pictures are very professionally taken but they give a more sophisticated impression than the reality of the hotel.

We thought that the room rate was slightly too high for the service offered but it may be understandable due to the proximity of the beach and the nature reserve.
The reception staff is very friendly (though not present at night time, the manager can be reached by a phone at the reception desk)

For a future visit to the area, we would gladly return to this

This is a great place to get away from it all - just 100 metres to the lovely sandy beach, the very good Struin Restaurant for dinner and a surf school, plus cycleways. Rooms are functional and the place quiet for a good night's sleep. Breakfast was very good but disappointingly commenced rather late at 08:30.

This small, quaint hotel provided our family was fantastic service. The location, a very short walk from the beach was ideal. The dunes were spectacular! Breakfast was included in the very reasonabe price, and it was great! I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay near the beach.
