“Cheap design hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Very good design hotel for a very reasonable price. The cheap rooms are quite small but are equipped with a fantastic bed and a nice shower. Although in description the free WiFi in the room was not possible. I could connect to the router but no internet connection. No problems in the lobby.
The restaurant is fantastic. The card is not very extensive, but the served food is a dream. I stayed with a colleague for 4 days and you can have a choice for more than 2 dinners.

A great experience hotel! The beautiful and very nice hotelbar, the swimmingpool and a large forest make this hotel a perfect getaway. The rooms (different types) are very nice. We had several over all the times we've spent here and can recommend most of them.The breakfast isn't expensive and has everything, the perfect way to start your day.
The small village (Bergen) is on walking distance of the hotel (15 min) but hiring a bike is also a good way to stroll along the small and picturesque village. The village has a lot of different and very nice restaurants, but the hotel restaurant is also a good way to spend the evening (especially if you have kids, they can create their own pizza).
Also very nice: in the entire hotel they have free internet!!

They call the town of Bergen a little Hamptons, and it sure looks like it. The blooming is just off the road that leads to the town, set just inside the woods that lead to the many paths and trails that take you to the white dunes coast. The hotel is charming in every way but the room was a little too plain and shabby and a little too noisy in the morning. Among the facilities is a very nice pool area equipped with lockers and a small hot tub. The pool itself is an architectural beauty that uses lighting and colors to great effect, and would not be out of place in a James Bond movie set. Right outside the pool is a deck area for lounging during the warm months. Nearby is a sort of picnic area with tables shaded by white umbrellas and scattered, oddly-placed hammocks. Given the prevalence of sand among the woods, the place has a certain out-of-space quality to it. The breakfast buffet was excellent, complete with a large selection of breads, scrambled and fried eggs, tender bacon and muesli mixes. If it wasn't for the dissapointment of the room, I would have given this place a perfect rating.

A newly build hotel, rooms that have their own terrasses over water or in the garden, situated in the middle of a forrest, 1 km from a picturesque city, 2 km from the sea... these are the prefect ingrediënts for a perfect place. Recommend

Very nice location, quit, in the dunes, near Bergen.Great to rent a bike. The bikes of the hotel are not so good so rent it in town. Rooms are small (althoug we had en spa room) and a very small bed. Looks nice but some details could be better done. Breakfast was super ! A great buffet, delicious bread and very good quality. Very friendly staff.

Room Tip: ask for a big unlimited room, best at a floor otherwise everyone can look into your room.

The hotel self is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the Netherlands, close to the artists town Bergen. It's on the edge of one of the biggest duneslandscaping in the Netherlands with foot- and byciclepaths leading to the beach. It is surrounded by trees, like it is in the middle of a forest. Rooms are simple, maybe on the small size, but comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff are friendly, the restaurant is outstanding; they use mostly natural ingredients for preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner. The poolarea is not too big, but big enough to swim around. Whirlpool is nice. The best thing one can do is take some longwalks in de dunes area to work up an appetite for eveningdinner which we have enjoyed all week. Take a short walk to the town of Bergen and walk around in the ancient and historic centre of the town, visit the deercamp and enjoy looking at hte architecture.

Room Tip: Rooms around the patio are less quiet than the rooms on the outside. On the other hand one can have...

Im told it was a suite, it was very unusual, walk in the door, glass shower cubicle on the right, in the bedroom, just there, showering entertainment for the room guests, no place to hang a towel, you know what I mean, need to hang it somewhere right? Nope, had to leave on the floor outside, in the middle of the room? A sauna, yep, taking p lots of space, a big old sauna, Infra Red too, as in no coals, walk around the sauna, round the back, the sink? Goofy set up -But.
Great place, get the impression Steve Jobs may have had something to do with the place, IT, Silicon Valleyesk, off the wall kind of furnishings etc. Breakfast area, a bit of carry on walking around spotting stuff, fun though, the food was great, cheese country so no worries.
The setting for the hotel, in the heart of Bergen, not to be confused with Bergen Norway, Bergen NW Holland, you think you know Holland, go have a looksee at this part, mind blowingly beautiful, the Real Estate is outstanding.

Room Tip: Take time to have a look at the pool.
