“High quality hotel near the dunes”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

I stayed in this hotel many times and every timenit's been a pleasure to be there. The rooms are very beautiful with high quality beds. Some rooms have a whirpool. The swimmingpool and saunas are cleaned very well. I have to say; it's one of the high quality hotels I have seen so far. A plus is the location: in front of the dunes, good for a nice walk with spectacular views over the inlands.

Stayed May 2014, traveled on business

Was here on a business trip as part of a group. Reception asked my name. They told me I was not registered. A senior staff member hurried to tell his colleague a larger group would be checking in.

Since the cozy rooms feel claustrophobic and the charme rooms are just too old and in bad need of renovation, I upgraded myself to a deluxe. An attempt of a renovation was made, but they did forget the bathroom. Spacious room and just ok bed. Nothing interesting or inspiring. The bathroom being the worst. I hate old towels and large bottles of cheap shampoo. A distinct sewerage smell was distant but always present.

I hoped for a quit balcony, but the car park is 360 degrees around the hotel. So never a nice view.
Even so, it was very hard to get a parking spot. The ones in front of the hotel are reserved for 'trainers'. So it is clear what business has highest priority. It is not the guest staying overnight. When I tried to leave the hotel in the morning, check-out was efficient, but my car was blocked by a delivery truck. Had to wait over 10 minutes before the staff was so kind to do anything about it. Not good when you are in a hurry for business.

My room was on the second floor. When you walk up the stairs, you first see an office space with open windows. Just one person sitting in this room, not greeting the guests. Is this the business centre? No it appeared to be the managers office. Strange.

Maybe I was happy I did not book this hotel for my holidays.

Since we travel with our dog, we got the s... iest rooms, somewhere between conferece room, celler and storage. The room was not clean, we had to ask for new Spreadsheets cause it was full with dog hair from the previous guest and on the so called balcony witch is under street level, was still dog poop lying.
Although they seem to have lots of this 'comfort rooms' we had next to our room an other guest with a barking dog-only seperated thru a thin door.
The whole 'wellness area' is anything but...sauna looks almost burned out, the wood is dark and dirty, stove looks very old and cheap, around the stove, they nailed or glued some hardplastic cover to protect the wood from the heat- the effect is that you are in a sauna( witch suppose to be good for your Health) and breath in lovely odors of melting plastic...under the benches its full of dust and things that dont belong there! The Swimmingpool is very small and icy cold. All together not a place to chill or enjoy. The staff at the desk tries to give an air of highclass and thats what it is- Lots of hot air; /
Pluses, yes! Excellent food, bit pricy and super motivated and really friendly staff there.
Would we ever come back? Nope.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is NOT underground

We stayed here for a friends daughters wedding. Arriving late as the flight was delayed they hotel had kept the restaurant open so we could have a meal at 10.00pm, and what a meal!! Excellent food and service and the staff were very helpful
I would certainly recommend this hotel for the food, the accommodation and the facilities. We are certainly thinking of brining the family back so we can cycle with the grandchildren in the dunes behind the hotel and make best use of the swimming pool.

The hotel is located near the centre of Schoorl. Staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is modern and has a cosy atmosphere. We had booked rooms in the categorie Charme and there were pleasant. Too bad that the light dimmer switch was defective. Room service did not empty the waste bins and the beds were made up without much enthousiasm since they looked like we left them in the morning. Wifi is high speed and free through-out the hotel. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant the first evening which was good but no vegetables with the food which was a pitty. I had a schnitzel which came with a plate full of not very well done french fries. Breakfast is excellent.
Parking is not free of charge which is stupid, especially when you consider that 99% of the guests come by car.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 2nd floor

Maybe it was by chance, but we went to sleep in the evening without checking the bedding. The next morning we saw that the sheet that we slept on was full of blood! Clearly a lady had an accident and they did not change the bedding. Will not return. What a bad experience. Disgusting.

Honestly - without this bad experience we would have enjoyed the place - but for those who go to this hotel, check your bed before you go to sleep!

During November 2011 with some friends we spent a 4 days/nights at the JAN VAN SCOREL hotel. We booked deluxe rooms (there are 3 types of rooms and some suites)
It was an absolutely positive experience

Plus points:
- Location; next to the splendid information centre and the start of several hiking and biking tracks trough the protected natural dune landscape (at certain parts up to 5 Km wide and some 50 Km long from Camperduin to Wijk aan Zee)
- Quiet surrounding and at a 15 minutes walking distance of the (busy) commercial street(s)
- Low rise building (only 3 floors)
- Though the staff is very young, we had only positive experiences and witnessed an efficient and friendly way of operating. A special mention for Ms Jocelyn at the “De Kannunik” restaurant. She was very professional and personal at the same time. The same can be said about her young male colleague who surprised us with his knowledge of the meat plates mentioned on the menu.
- Very acceptable quality for the buffet breakfast
- The lunches and dinners at the quaint Kannunik restaurant were served in a sophisticated way. The food was of an acceptable quality.
- The hotel in general and the rooms in particular give an overall clean impression.
- Wheelchair accessibility
- The (deluxe) rooms are very wide (aprox. 4 X 6 meter) + entrance hall + bathroom with full bath, amenities (shower cap + soap + shampoo + bath gel), hairdryer and good towels. Some rooms have separate toilets. Terrace with 2 comfortable chairs (no real “views”) Flat screen TV. Coffee and tea making facilities. Some rooms have a safe. The beds are of an acceptable box spring quality.
- Free wifi

Minor points
- The hotel, on its “in room” information sheet, mentions the Jan Van Scorel as a 4 star deluxe property. As a world traveller, personally I would rather qualify the hotel as an excellent 3 stars.
- We have not seen a private garden – the beach is at a (beautiful) walk or bike ride of 4,5 Km! The hotel parking surrounds the hotel building.
- Surprising charge of 7,50 Euro for parking the car on the open air hotel premises open and accessible to any individual
- The De Kannunik restaurant was to small for the number of guests. During the self-service breakfast you had difficulties to slalom between the tables and the guests. We suppose that during the high summer season, meals might be served also at the terraces which would lift a bit of the to high crowd pressure and lack of privacy while having a meal.
- In the rooms, the free of charge WIFI is extremely slow . Opening an internet site might easily take up to 5 minutes;
- No mini-bar in the rooms
- The use of the safe in the room is charged at 1 Euro a day
- There is a tax and handling fee at 2,25 Euro per day extra.
- The “Trappist” bar needs a refurbishment and a decoration rethinking. Emblematic was a TV screen hanging at eye height with the ongoing open fireplace image with “virtual burning logs” and with underneath the electricity cable hanging. The plastic vault decoration on the walls etc… were not really our idea of a 4 stars taste.

Overall we would be very glad to stay again at this hotel and forget about the sometimes plastic well meant decoration. It was certainly the location and the quality of the staff that made our stay a pleasant experience.
