Sumptuous hotel in the Dutch dunes

  • None
  • * my tip Simply enjoy the scenery.
  • (Other)
Great hotel and Location
  • + We enjoyed our stay at Sandton Hotel on Terschelling Island very much. It has great facilities and such a great location on the large beach on the North Sea. The staff treated us well and we had a beautiful room. It is highly recommended.
  • * my tip The hotel has a nice pool and sauna. The dining area is roomy and comfortable. The area is great for nature walks and bicycling.
  • (Families with older children)
Terscheling is Great and so is the Sandton Hotel
  • + This hotel is a great. Right near the dunes and a magnificent beach. Weather is always iffy but then one can go into the village and hang out. And if you wait a few hours, the rain usually goes away. Plenty of bikes to rent. Miles of biking and hiking trails. The hotel has good food and there is a hangout on the beach with even better food. The island is filled with young people, couples, families with children. The hotel is family friendly. Our son and his fiancee also loved it.
  • I honestly can't think of a bad thing to say about this hotel.
  • * my tip Go in August if possible. We went in July and the weather can get cool.
  • (Families with older children)
  • + Very helpful personel, great quality breakfast buffet, nice roomy rooms. Great location if you like the "quiet".
  • the refrigirater was not cold enough. Would be great if you could control your own room temperature. During the night it was kept too warm. Also breakfast buffet til 10:30 during week would be nice. Especially for people with jet lag :)
  • (Older couples)
very good hotel ,we will visit again
  • (Older couples)
Good, but can be better
  • + The hotel IS comfortable. But the price also.
  • This inquiry is in english. Unfortunately, nothing is in english inside the hotel : notice in the bedroom, informations in the swimming pool et sauna and, above all, menu in the restaurant. Difficult to make a choice about what you'll eat... So, we went away. Ok, we can ask, but it's not the same
  • (Young couples)
Fabulous stay, wonderful location!
  • (Older couples)
If all other hotels fail then stay here
  • + Restaurant food excellent. Lovely but slightly isolated location
  • Rude and highly opinionated staff Beware of dogs and children in dining/breakfast area especially Very small pool
