Stayed here overnight for a special birthday getaway and it was a truly wonderful experience. Let's face it - the Dutch are hardly known for their customer service, but the staff at D&K went above and beyond to make our stay a pleasant one. We were upgraded to a suite, which was larger than most Amsterdam apartments! The enormous bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Breakfast was standard for a 5-star hotel.
We enjoyed a dinner at Vrienden van Jacob, the Michelin-starred restaurant in the hotel. Again, another spectacular gastronomic experience. The service was outstanding.
This place is wonderful for a weekend getaway outside Amsterdam, and a lovely location to wander through the estate or the nearby beaches. I'll definitely be back!

We went to stay at this lovely castle on 1 Jan. The castle itself is very lovely, and is in a great location for nice walks etc. The room we had, and to be fair we booked a standard room, was fine without being great. The bed was fantastic, but aside from that it missed the element of luxury. Old carpet etc.

We are pretty down to earth people, but the dining experience we had at the brasserie was pretty disappointing. The food was seriously fantastic, absolutely no faults there, and we are foodies. But the service was terrible. I understand it was 1 Jan but the place was severely understaffed. We booked a table for 8pm, and happily sat at the bar while they worked out our table. Unfortunately this took them to better part of an hour. We checked once half way with them (around 830pm), and still they managed to "forget" us and give our table to other, unbooked guests. Then they rushed us through the (not cheap) meal to try to get rid of us. Quite dissapointing for what was supposed to be a special night.

Breakfast in the morning was very nice. Great buffet.

Very disappointing for the kitchen staff who obviously did a great job, but we would not go back.

The good:
luxurious but not stuffy, friendly helpful staff, great breakfast, near train station.

The bad:
the fitness center and sauna are tiny

Advice:
If you are without a car-you may need to use the train. It is a short walk @ 5 minutes to the Santport Noord statiion--which only has an automated ticket machine which would only take coins (euro coins)or bank/CC with a security chip in them (not available in the US). Remember to stop at the front desk to get enough euro coinage before setting out.

I went together with my wife because we wanted to spent some quality time together, as my wife is currently working in Nepal we don't see each other that much and therefore we want to enjoy every minute of it. The hotel has a great location, next to the forrest and close to the beach, it looks nice and the restaurant and service are good too, something that unfortunately is quite rare in most of Europe. The rooms are comfortable and we loved the bed!!. We ordered room service, it didn't take very long, the food was good... that was all we could wish for that night!. We are a bit spoilt as we have visited 5 star hotels in Asia, but even in comparsion to those this hotel is still worth to go to and is worth the money, we loved it!.

This is a very beautiful old style hotel with class. Whereas a lot of hotels in the Netherlands are rather anonymous, this one has style and service written all over it.

The hotel has a new part, which is fully integrated in the hotel, but nicely hidden when viewing it from the outside (you have to be there to see it). The room is confortable (we stayed in the new part, as I understood only the old part has airco... since we were there in winter we didn't need that).

We stayed here with our 8 month old baby. Unfortunately the hotel has no complimentary babybeds (so far the only hotel we stayed in that does not offer them for free). For people with a stroller of in a wheelchair, the hotel is a bit of a challenge to get around with. The front door is up the stairs (the wheelchair lift is there, on the left of the stairs, but very well hidden). In the hotel you go up and down using several elevators, since they have several stairs in it.

The service is very good for a dutch hotel. Personal touch, like walking with the stroller and a bartender walking from behind the bar to already push the elevatorbutton. Things like that!

They have 2 restaurants. The one we visited (without the Michelin star) was a good one. It also hosts the breakfast in the morning.

The breakfast is a different story though. The taste is very nice, but when the hotel is full, it seemed too big of a challenge to seat everybody. We had a baby in a stroller and got after some time a place directed with almost no place for the babystroller (they didn;t have or offer a babychair... the hotel is not that babyfriendly). If there is one thing I would urge everybody to do here: roomservice. We had breakfast the first day and absolutely loved it. The quality was good, it was plenty and much less hassle then in the restaurant. We found the quality also better then in the restaurant.

This hotel is a hidden gem that works on every romantic level. Go there, enjoy yourself. Eat out and have breakfast in your room!

I just got back from a visit to this wonderful estate and I will have to say that it has been nothing but perfect! We got a room in the old building, it was very well decorated which gave it a charming appearance. Unfortunately, the restaurant 'de vrienden van Jacob' was closed, but we had a very good dinner at 'Brasserie DenK'. I will absolutely recommend staying at Duin & Kruidberg, but remember to book a room in the old part, the rooms in the new part (the executive rooms) aren't quite as nice.

Have been here a few times on buisness and love it. Would love to go back for pleasure.

The one thing that really makes this place stand out is the food and the service. Absolutely faultless!!!

Rooms are a good size and if staying in the new part of estate they are great value for money. Never stayed in the other section...
