We came here as we're given this as a gift and part as my 50th. Oh my goodness we were treated like royalty from start to finish. The food, wine and service were impeccable omg we were blown away, we will be back and also to stay in your hotel

Merlet is certainly one of our favourite restaurants and probably the best restaurant in the greater Alkmaar/Bergen/Schoorl area. Definitely worth its Michelin star and we have been coming here for years and have never once been disappointed. Flawless service, amazingly innovative gourmet food and one of the longest wine lists you can imagine. This restaurant is certainly worth a detour...

We dinned at Merlet on the 25 august 2016. It is the best place to be in Noord Holland. We had the 5 course menu with one the excellent course was with green parts from " Noorderhoeve". Sea bars is also very advisable. If you are fond of cheese please try the Cheese Lorry.

Last weekend we stayed in this hotel for the first time. It is a lovely hotel near the centre of Schoorl. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights, liked Schoorl and visited Bergen as well. We had a royal room, spacy and cosy. What we did not like was the big bath tub in the middle of...

Rooms are wide and nicely set up. The staff is nice and available, breakfast is great. Only choose the hotel restaurant if you like nuovelle cousine and you don't mind expensive dinners. (otherwise there's plenty of wonderful pubs just outside) Good for a business trip

Check in OK, accompanied to room but without much friendlyness, strange smell in lobby & room. Room spacy, with a view and balcony. Minibar very poor, fridge not working so lukewarm white SA wine (only €40 for 35 cc!). Electric fireplace/very small TV swivel.? Bathroom OK. separate toilet bravo. Nespresso machine worked after some effort (empty water reservoir, no instructions)....

Every course was perfect and the wines tasted very fine with the offered food. This was our 7th or 8th visit and we will certainly come...

room was clean and bed was comfortable. We had an arrangement with a 4 course the first evening en 5 the second. Both were very very good. The Michelin star, they really earned it. The breakfast was good. No buffet; we like that very much. Good coffee, tea,bread, jus, eggs and so on served in a nice room.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary together with our adult kids at the Michelin star restaurant (not the Grand Cafe which is located in the same building). We chose to go for the "full monty" which is the 6-course dinner coupled with a wine selection for every course. The glass of champagne offered on arrival was simply the best champagne I've...

From the outside the place looks nice and fancy and is in a really nice area with forest etc. on arrival the parking was full but a nice member of the staff (which we later found out it was one of the owners) offered us to open the underground garage. Once parked there are no indications how to get to...
