“Second time, food still cold”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I did not rate the restaurant last time I was there as I was not overly impressed but wondered if they had just had an off day. However this visit had many of the same symptoms. There is a lot of effort in the food. Perhaps too much time though is spent decorating at the expense of the taste and warmth of the food. Tepid I the hottest any item came. The meat was cold. The "smear" of vegetable looked nice but had hardened to a thin crust. It is a shame given the service, the ambience and the wine

We stayed one day in this hotel, with private parking. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed on Sunday but the hotel is very close to many other restaurants. On Sunday, all shops nearby are open. The beach is at 200 meter. We had a nice room with free minibar, but without coffee. The room on the street side is very noisy making sleeping with open windows difficult. As it was extremely hot this was a problem, but a ventilator was available. We were told to checkout before 12, but when we came back from the beach at 11:15, our towels were already removed.
Wifi works perfectly.

Room Tip: Street side has sunset, but with much noise. Other side seems better.

It should be noted that many of the amenities - fitness center, pool - listed here for Villa De Duinen are offsite, accessible by many more people than the hotel guests, and have limited weekend hours (9-5). The hotel itself is beautiful - clean, comfortable and well-designed, but it was disappointing to find a lack of amenities. Restaurant is lovely, and breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: back of hotel!

I stayed 3 days here last week. a splendid location, small luxury hotel, with great restaurant. This is all in style, with a lot of personal attention. I can 100% recommend this to you all. As a frequent traveller around europe I stay in a lot of 5 star hotels. This small hotel really delivers great service with a personal touch (which a big hotel cannot give to you). Also the adjacent wellness centre is great to visit.!

This was my second time staying here. This time I had dinner with colleagues that are local to the area.
The dinner was fantastic and the staff paired wines with the different courses. My colleagues had not eaten there before, but said they would definitely go back.
Again the room was perfect. Shower is very large and the rooms are spotlessly clean.
The staff go the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need.
Breakfast was excellent!
Parking is limited, but they offer a close off-site option if need be.

Nice and cosy small hotel. Very friendly staff. Breakfast is served at the table. Minibar is complimentary. Great location, 5 walking mins to the beach and just a few steps from the centre of Noordwijk. Parking in front of the hotel ( free of charge). It was a pity that the restaurant was not open during our stay. But the atmosphere of the restaurant looked promising. We will come back here for sure.

Excellent location. Very clean and seems new.
Short walk to the beach, and can see the beach from some rooms.
Will definitely be back.
Restaurant is excellent.
