We were visiting Texel off-season, in February. We booked a room with sauna and bubble bath, not sure what the winter weather would bring. It turned out to be a brilliant choice - the room was bright, tastefully decorated, and seemed recently renovated. It was exceptionally clean. The sauna and bubble bath were new and could fit two people.
Despite the windows facing the road we could barely hear the cars passing by. The room had a door leading to the terrace which (I imagine) could be a really nice place to sit around in the warm spring sun.
The breakfast provided by the hotel was by far the best I've had in a while: wide choice was topped by freshly baked (still warm) bread.
The most remarkable part, though, was the hospitality of the hosts. Because we arrived early in the day, they also made the room ready earlier. They even added an extra heater in the room just in case we needed it (despite the weather we did not). They were nice and chatty, asking about our day on the island and seemed genuinely interested in our answers. They offered advice on sights and lots of information about the island. We felt extremely welcome, and will definitely stay at the same hotel when we return to Texel.
One last note, after reading other reviewer's comments on the steep price - I think what we paid for the room with own sauna, bubble bath and sun shower was fair - after all, it was a small luxury.
