It is a nicely located hotel about 30 min. car drive from Amsterdam. We were pleasantly surprised how big the room was, with balcony overlooking the sea, nice flat screen TV, huge bed bit too soft for our liking but we have slept well and nice spacious bathroom. The whole hotel has nice feel to it, reception staff was very friendly and efficient. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The terrace overlooking the marina is great, we regret not having at least a drink or a meal there while watching the sunset but we have used the lobby bar for coffee and beer instead. We enjoyed our stay there but there is room for improvement. The walls in our room were so thin we could hear the TV next door or people talking, also every time somebody was entering the corridor on the first floor the door would shut with an awful bang waking us up in the middle of the night.
Breakfast priced at €17.50!! We have paid less for steaks in the middle of Amsterdam and unfortunately if you haven't booked your room with breakfast there is not many places around the remotely located hotel where you can go and have it (especially during Easter).
I have missed such simple things like a bath matt in the bathroom and a kettle to make a drink in the evening before bed. Also water priced at €5.50 is an exaggeration - most hotels I have been to offer free complimentary bottle to their guests.
Summing up it is nice hotel in good location if you want to visit Amsterdam and don't mind driving and it is good value for money but there are few minor bits which could put off some fussy travellers.
