We were greeted at reception by a friendly member of staff who told us where the local shops were and where the beach was. We were also given a lovely bunch of flowers which lasted our whole stay. We stayed in a Den bungalow - the smallest bungalow available - which was lacking in character from the outside, but once inside was nicely furnished and decorated. The bonus was a private garden, surrounded by hedging which attracted a lot of different birds. The kitchen was fully equipped with kettle, coffee maker, fridge-freezer, hob and combination microwave. We also had a washing machine. The lounge had a flat-screen TV and DVD player. We paid for access to the internet which was a bit slow due to the fact we were using it in the evening as was everyone else.
My first impression was how clean the bungalow was. The crockery, cutlery even down to the ladder towel radiator in the bathroom. It made a nice change compared to self catering accommodation in the UK we've stayed at in the past where the first thing you have to do is wash everything before you can use it.
We picked the location for its closeness to the Keukenhof gardens - less than 10 minutes by car. We were also within easy driving distance to Amsterdam, Haarlam and Leiden. The beach at Noordwijk is also nearby.
As the accommodation is self-catering and there is no restaurant on-site I think a car is essential. We found a Lidl a short drive away where we did our shopping.
I hope to visit the Keukenhof gardens again and wouldn't hesitate about booking to stay here again.
