Reviewed yesterday NEW

Friendly welcome at reception, escorted to room. Room was clean and cosy. Unfortunately, there was only one set of towels and two guests. Breakfast & lunch were both outstanding. Would absolutely stay again.

Stenden hotel is that hotel, completely run by the students in International Hospitality Management at Stenden University. You will feel as a king/queen. Good quality of material and services at the...

Good friendly relaxing atmosphere, a welcome change. Staff were very friendly, came out to help with luggage. Although it's a teaching school we had a very pleasant stay and it did feel professional. Good choice of breakfast.

The Stenden hotel is run by hospitality students. While there is the odd glitch here and there, due to slightly less experienced staff, we very much appreciated the overall stay. The staff was very attentive and friendly, and they very much went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. There is a restaurant attached, also run by students....

Due to the personal attention and helpfulness of the staff, I had a very pleasant stay. The quality of the restaurant was a pleasant surprise. On arrival (December, 5th) I found a Saint Nicolas present with rhyme waiting in my room. Nice gesture to make me feel welcome. I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and relatives.

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.

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...
