I was here with my friends, the stay was perfect. One of the students came to my care to help me out. Nice.The menu in te restaurant was disappointing, the concept was not clear. Too much veggies and too much wine is a scary combination.

Very nice and quiet hotel, lovely staff and amazing breakfast. When one of the waitresses by accident dropped a bottle of beer which resulted in some beer on the jeans of my travel companion, the staff immediately offered to pay for the dry cleaner (which was not necessary at all) and served us some snacks on the house. The staff...

As other reviewers have stated the service is fantastic. The students work very hard to make sure you have everything you need. The breakfast was well worth the extra cost and it was very simple to go back and forth to central Leeuwarden as well as out in to the countryside. People do need to be aware though that there...

The purpose of the visit was to help us to settle our daughter into her digs and first week of her first year at one of the universities next door. One of the courses there is to do with hotel and hospitality management, hence they have their own hotel. Everything is intended to be done to 4* plus levels but...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The students were all so friendly and eager to help. They were on the 1st days of their rotation, so "yes" checking in might have taken longer than normal, but seldom has it been as enjoyable. The room was lovely & spotlessly clean. We ate dinner outside on the patio and the...

Our party of four stayed at the Stenden for one night and were thoroughly impressed with the high level of service, friendliness and helpfulness of the student-staff and the overall impression of hospitality. Our buffet breakfast was absolutely first-class! If I had to come up with a negative it would be that it is not within walking distance to the...

This is a university student-run hotel. Check-in was a bit slow as the receptionist needed constant assistance from the supervisor. An ambassador accompanied me to the hotel room - all first-time guests would definitely need to be escorted as the rooms are far away from the reception and there are multiple hallways and function rooms in between - and she...
