Just returned from Holland where we had booked four nights at the Old Dutch via the Holland NL site. The brochure describes it as a "luxury" hotel but they have a long way to go. The room overlooked the harbour which was its only saving grace, except that it can get a bit noisy. The only way to describe it was shabby. There was wallpaper peeling away from the walls all around the room and stains on the carpet where previous furniture had been removed. There was nowhere comfortable to sit as shown in the pictures, just two wooden kitchen-type chairs. The bed was broken at one corner and the tv very small, at ceiling level, and very basic. In the bathroom there was mould on the tiles in the shower and about a foot up the shower curtain. No hairdryer and no coffee making facilities and no written guest information. The breakfast buffet was also basic, even for the continent, and on the last morning we were there it was empty and we had to ask for everything we wanted. The food in the restaurant was excellent but unfortunately people lighting up cigarettes spoiled it. They really need to consider making the restaurant a non-smoking area, or at least a section of it. We felt we paid too much for what was on offer and that was confirmed when we reached our next destination which was cheaper and far superior. We were unable to complain at the time as there didn't seem to be anyone in charge, just waiting and bar staff.
