We stayed one night at Sandton and wanted to exted one more night but it's was fully booked so could not spend the 2nd night. Rooms were clean and breakfast was good as well. The option to renting bicycle is very good. Very easy and convenient way to go around the island.

Stayed 5 nights in Sandton Paal 8 in a suite "islandsite". Indeed a perfect location close to the beach in the middle of the dunes. 15 minutes by bike to the "city center". Restaurant on site, small (indoor) swimmingpool and nice terrace. On the negative : no 24 hour reception, no A/C in the room or rest of the hotel,... More

The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the main city. Your room either looks out on to the dunes or onto the "beach". My room was located on the dunes and you could see the rabbits hopping around which was really cute. The room I was in had 2 small TVs and electronic fireplace which was really cool, 4... More

I recently stayed at the Paal 8 with the intention of having a few days to "get away from it all." My visit accomplished just that. Paal 8 is located apart from the many small towns on Terschelling - but also close enough to the restaurants and nightlife in West Terschelling and Midsland that it is quite easy to get... More

Location is great: in the dunes, near the sea, in the middle of nowhere, with the window open, you hear the waves rushing on the shore, in the morning a variety of bird songs, when you go to the balcony you sea the rabbits and the pheasants playing in the dunes. The hotel is connected to the bicycle routes, and... More

We just spent a long family (2 adults and one 8 year old) weekend on the beautiful island of Terschelling. We chose Paal 8 because of its location - very close to the beach and surrounded by dunes. As it turned out, a family suite was only a couple of Euros more expensive, than a double room with an extra... More

Hotel Paal 8 is a suitable basis from which the energetic traveller can explore Terschelling, using the network of foot and cycle paths or the few roads. Terschelling on The Netherlands north coast is a relatively small island. It offers an interesting variety of landscapes on a small scale- broad sandy beaches on the North Sea coast and extensive mud... More

I love this hotel. It is beautiful, in a great location and the 4 person suites are magnificent. It's only a pity that there are a few things that avoid me giving it top rating. The showers will make a pool of water on the floor however you position the shower curtain. Worse, the hotel looks very understaffed. At breakfast... More
