“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

This is a small charming hotel located in a very quiet and chill area. The rooms are very cute (we had a painting with a cow on the wall) and the view is truly nice. We opted for a package which included breakfast, dinner and the rental of a boat for a whole day. Food was wonderful! Dinner was a three course meal and everything was exceptionally presented and tasted great. Especially the mustard soup! :-) We took the boat in the second morning there and we strolled along the canals. It was beautiful. Don't be afraid, it is super-easy to maneuver it. The boat also contained a basked full of goodies - sandwiches, sweets, a small bottle of champagne with two glasses, fruit, orange juice and even two raincoats in case the weather turned bad. People are very nice and super-relaxed, as everybody in Netherlands ;-)) which contributed to our nice stay there. I recommend it wholeheartedly for a romantic & relaxing week-end getaway with your loved one.

The staff were absolutely excellent and faultless throughout, on arrival we were greeted with complimentary champagne and cakes, and when we left the staff printed us out a train timetable for us to get back to the Hook of Holland.

We were lucky to get a room in the farmhouse, which was a 5 or 10 minute walk from the main hotel. Everything about the room was perfect, it was a big room filled with vintage and antique mahogany furniture; and unlike the other traditional farmhouses, it had big (and nicely beamed) ceiling, which was a welcomed relief for me! (tall person)

We hired bicycles and a whisper boat from the hotel, both were fairly priced and cheaper than many of the other places.

The only negative thing was the distance from the centre of Giethoorn, it was about a 30 minute walk for us. Also on the first day we were not entirely sure how to actually get there, but the hotel kindly supplied us with a walking map the next day. Nonetheless the walk into Giethoorn was beautiful and we saw the canals and thatched farmhouses (the reason we stayed in Giethoorn) If the walk is too much and you are without a car, the number 70 bus stops outside the hotel every 30 minutes and runs into the centre in next to no time.

We stayed here one night - the room itself was fine though nothing spectacular. Excellent location with a very quiet night's sleep. The big surprise was the excellent food. We had booked a package that included dinner, breakfast and a picnic to take on the whisper boat with us. The three course dinner was delicious - we ordered different entrees (he had the pork and I had the turkey) and we both enjoyed our meals immensely. We took a walk into the older part of Giethoorn after dinner and it was beautiful. After returning we were delighted to find the dinning room still open for drinks so we had a bottle of wine. Breakfast was decent, but the picnic that they packed was really delightful and included champagne glasses with a small half bottle of sparkling wine - a great surprise. Plus they packed us 2 rain ponchos which came in very handy. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others. And the whisper boats were fantastic!!

Pros:
1. The food (dinner and breakfast) was tasty.
2. In couple of minutes walk from the hotel, you arrive to the very picturesque old area of the village. There you can enjoy the special charm of a trip between the beautiful gardens, houses, channels, bridges.
Cons:
1. It looks more like a motel.
2. The room was small, with a very simple furniture. Try to ask for a room at the ground floor. Our room was on the upper floor and the stairs were very non-comfortable.

The owners/staff were very friendly. Because it was quite cold, we didn't tried to rent a self-driving, open boat but we take a very pleasant trip with a boat company. The port is more than 5 km from the hotel so we went with our car. A large parking place is very close to the port.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the ground floor.

We stayed here for one night and had an adorable room with a lovely view of the canal. The room was small, but we loved the furnishings and charm (the bed was built into a large cupboard). Our room also had a private bathroom, which was quite modern. Our room rate included a four course dinner and breakfast. We were unable to arrive until 8pm and notified the hotel in advance, and they were extremely accommodating with serving us a later dinner after our arrival. The staff was very friendly and the dinner was excellent. The next day we used the hotel bikes to travel to the main part of Giethoorn and thoroughly enjoyed the bike ride (following a route recommended by the hotel) and the town. The bike ride was approx. 4km. We were unable to rent a whisper boat from the hotel because they were booked, but we did reserve one in town and would highly recommend seeing the town from a boat. It was a very enjoyable stay.

I recommend when you book a room to ask for the one in the farm! All the furniture are origian from 17 and 1800, unique atmosphear. The service in the hotel is very personal and kind. I forgot my laptop and they send it to me 200 km. away! The food is excellent, its possible to rent a boat for a day and the hotel is adding to it a picknique basket with sandwiches, strawbaries and champagne.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms in the farm!
