“Timeless classic”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Stayed for a week. I had room 5, which is quite small. Just as well it was just me. But one day, in a fit of nosiness, I peered into a room that was open while the cleaners were in. Palatial, tasteful, beautifully decorated. This is a real hotel, where each room is different. It's not your cookie cutter type chain, and that was refreshing.

Apart from the rooms, the service was fantastic. I arrived late afternoon and they made me up a sandwich as soon as they heard my stomach rumble. They are friendly and very helpful, and no exactly how to make your stay a good one.

Breakfast, always the seller for me, was excellent. There was no menu on the table, instead you just told them what you would like. I always opted for the Dutch breakfast, a feast of bread, cheese, yogurt, eggs, cold cuts.....this is a wonderful place to stay!

The Hotel Augusta is part antique shop, part modern facilities. Tucked away in a housing estate its public areas are circa 1920s but up-market 20s-style. Beware of steep stairs to the bedrooms (and no lifts). Dining room obviously appeals to non-residents in the locality as generally very busy but for the casual or business traveller the menus are rather pretentious, pseudo gourmet selection. Breakfast a strange experience and (aged) waiting staff a bit weird.

Room Tip: No views to be had so request ground floor or 1st floor due to tortuous stairs.

Very charming building with very good atmosphere. I love the librabry with the fireplace where you can enjoy a glass of wine before dinner! The Restaurant is very good - high quality food! The staff is very friendly and the rooms are also really nice. I have stayed in several hotels in the area around Ijmuiden/Haarlem and this is definately the best I have stayed in.

Small, quaint, modern, deco vintage and charming. Service was personal and warm, room was beautiful, comfy beds and very spacious bathroom with nice toiletries. You do hear the seagulls from a very early hour so you may wish to bring earplugs :-)
Breakfast room very decadent and the continental breakfast was fresh and plentiful. We did not eat at restaurant.

Deco fabulous. Most of staff friendly. As long as you avoid room 1 then great rooms

Down side is the restaurant food over the top if you're staying more than one night! Restaurant staff miserable and in helpful! Crap bar menu so selection of food limited. If you get a nice waitress she may let you pick off the lunchtime menu which is better

Room Tip: Avoid room 1

Hotel is placed close to the port area. Intriors are really nice - classic style. Very nice service. the best relation wine to the food in the restaurant I have ever seen - if You chose menu degustativo.
If You are for business in Ijmuiden - place is perfect.
Dont keep Your car under trees outside - birds will put so much sheet on Your it that You can not imagine - I drive to the car wash directly after leaving the hotel.

Room Tip: Dont stop Your car under the trees outside
