We chose the Posthoorn to celebrate my 65th birthday. With children and partners, we had a party of 8 and occupied 4 of the hotels 6 rooms. The rooms, especially the 2 suites, were all different and well appointed. We had booked well in advance and all our requests, including dietary requirements, were met.
Starting with a glass of champagne and amouse bouche in the library, we moved into the restaurant for the Chef's Treat Package of 6 courses with matching wines. The food and wines were very good and the Maitre d' was attentive and knowledgeable on wine. The breakfast was basic, but adequate. However, I was surprised to find that we were charged extra for cofee at breakfast - not very Dutch.
Monnickendam is worth a look around and, if you are lucky, you may see a luxury yacht being worked on in the harbour.
We would definitely return here.
