We booked a room here with two other rooms for the family as we had a family event in Leeuwarden. The room was like stepping back in time because the building was 15th Century. I don't think this was an "official" bedroom. There was a large tv on the wall but nowhere to sit to watch it but there was a couch on the other side of the room. Old faded photos on the wall with one of a naked baby in Edwardian pose. The curtains - they were blinds that only covered up half the windows and the remainder had frosted glass screens in front of them. So at night we had to hang our clothes in front of the windows to make the room dark and stop people looking in. I say hang because we had our own coat hangers with us which was good because there were just two coat hangers provided hanging from a lamp bracket. IN THE WHOLE ROOM AND THE BATHROOM THERE WAS NOT ONE HOOK TO HANG ANYTHING ON!! The breakfast was laid out for us and was good, with milk etc. from a small fridge as described by other reviewers. I believe that in Holland anything over two rooms is classified as a hotel and has to pay tax etc. and follow all the fire and safety precautions. There were no fire extinguishers, no exit signs and the door lock was a hook latch.
We saw our host on arrival and we were told to leave our cash and keys on the table when we left. No bill - no receipt!!
No - we will not stay here again!!
