a beautiful hotel, with lovely peaceful and tranquil surroundings right by the river. Bike hire available if you want to explore and the roads are all bike friendly with designated bike lanes. Friendly staff and comfortable clean accommodation. Simply Beautiful.
Mosquitoes are a nuisance in the evening so take a good insect repellent
*my tipVisit Blokzijlt nearby, it has a beautiful harbour and lovely restaurants. Visit Giethoorn, which is like a mini Venice all on the river. You can hire a small boat to explore which is not expensive and you can explore many gift shops and bars and restaurants as well.

Good quality hotel in à charming place. Not à right place for à family
Location at the country side in à quite place. Room confortable and clean. The restaurant should be nice, recommandes by Michelin.
No real contact with someone. So impersonnel. I met 5 différent persons just for one night. Quite extensive for à family ( 2 parents, 2 kids with âge of 10 and 8) because you need to rent 2 rooms.
*my tipYou can easily go to Blokzijl, which is very close to the hotel. And there you can find many restaurants, in à very nice place (small Harbor)
