Very nice and quiet location. Peaceful place in a very beautiful village and an interesting area. Small but very nice swimming pool in a flowered garden. Good restaurant. delicious dishes. Wonderful breakfast.

We enjoyed staying at Roosje van de Kaap very much. It's been a couple of years since we stayed here and regretted the fact we stayed in 2 other places over the years.
The friendliness and hospitality of Freek and Helpie did make our stay extra special.
Next time we'll stay in their b&b again as they outdo the other one's by far.
See you next year!

Lovely and peaceful guest house; just out of town, but close to the Drotsdy museum, well worth visiting.
Has had a recent make-over, but retains the charm it already had.
Good on-site restaurant, although limited menu.

We had been warmly welcomed and liked our little beautiful cottage very much. The atmosphere was perfectly relaxing and the food which we got at night in the enclosed restaurant was delicious including a great team! A pity that we only had one night there...

Nice setting, old dutch style cottages, friendly staff, very quiet (as we were the only one staying!), walking distance from the main street and nice restaurants as the kitchen was exceptionnaly close when we were there.

The breakfast was nice (good selection and a cooked breakfast).
