My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Het Zeepaardje! Check-in was easy despite the fact that employees are not always at the hotel (a phone on the desk rings to the cell phone of a nearby owner). The hotel has a clean, modern design that is also cozy and a little bit quirky. Our room was absolutely gorgeous with a comfortable big bed, plenty of shelves and drawers (no closet, though space for hanging clothes), and an immaculate, large bathroom. We opted for a deluxe room and had plenty of space, including a sofa.
The common spaces are big and welcoming. In the lounge, there's an enormous leather couch, several chairs surrounding a gas heater, books, games, and a big TV with a Wii. Adjacent to the lounge is the dining area with tables for 2 or 4 persons and free coffee and tea at all times. Breakfast was typically Dutch - a selection of breads, cold cuts, cheese, eggs, yogurt and cereal.
The hotel is in the center of Hollum, about a five minute walk from the bars and around the corner from several restaurants. The beach is about 1 km away. The bus from the ferry stops just around the corner.
We were extremely pleased with our experience here and plan to return again. Definitely check it out if you want to stay on Ameland!
