    Young couples september 2016

    Very easy to locate, great location 3 mins walk from the canals, extremely friendly staff, clean rooms, good breakfast, boat rental from within the hotel.

    There was a lot of noise in the morning, door slammings and people talking right outside our room window.

    “My tip: Request a top floor room as the first floor is right beside a pathway where people outside might wake you up.”

    Zuiderzee Route

    The hotel rooms are fairy large, clean and attractive. Check-in and out was easy. The breakfast had a wide variety.

    The hotel is two miles north of the centrum although we knew this when we booked the hotel four more miles on a bike after a long ride, filling dinner and a bottle of wine.

    Good hotel with polite personel

    The staff was very polite, helpful and well organized. They gave us maps of the area and explained everything. All our needs were met. There was possibility to rent bikes (9.5 day) and boats (15 hour). The hotel is situated in a quiet place and has free parking.

    The hotel is at the beginning edge of the village (coming from Amsterdam), which means approximately 15min by bicycle to get to the center of the village.

    “My tip: When renting a boat, watch out that 15 hour is strictly calculated. That is, if you rent it for 1 hour and you give the boat back at 1 hour and 10 minutes, you will pay 17.5 (15 15 10min 60min) ”

    Friendly and helpful staff, charming town

    All of the staff at the Hotel were very friendly and helpful. They have bicycles to use for those without a car. The breakfast had a nice variety of food. We ate at the restaurant for three nights, and we liked all of our meals, especially the fresh fish. Our room had a deck, which was very pleasant.

    The hotel is near the most picturesque part of Giethoorn, but not near any shops or other services. If you do not have a car, be prepared to bike to town. There are not a lot of amenities in the rooms (tea coffee, bar soap), but for the price we were not expecting anything fancy.

    “My tip: Plan a couple of bike rides with stops at the cafes in Dwarsgracht or Muggenbeet for lunch or coffee. The scenery is amazing.”

    Small and quaint - go when the weather is nice

    Incredibly friendly and accomodating staff. They bumped us up to a better room for no extra charge (off-season)! The terraced rooms are beautiful when it's sunny. Decent breakfast.

    Not worth the canals that the town has to offer when the weather is poor. Off-season, the hotel restaurant is open for dinner until 8pm, and the town restaurants also work limited hours, especially Sundays.

    A friendly, comfortable place from which to explore a remarkable area

    Very helpful staff who were full of information about the area and trained me most efficiently in the use of a small boat! Excellent supper.

    If you didn't book a room with a balcony (ground level) as I did, there was some, but not a lot of space to sit out of doors and look at the countryside, which, given the location of the hotel, you might expect to be able to do.

    It is located in a beautiful area, very near the charming Giethorn, strategyc place to travel trought the channels and making amazing rotes by bicicle. It is also 15 min walking from the restaurant Linderhof of one of the best chefs of Holand, chef Martin.

    The access is possible by car, bus or taxi but on weekend only by bus. The dinner time finish at 9 and you are in the middle of the forest!!! not spanish time!
