Excellent breakfast; very kind staff. Being in the middle of the island, the location is very convenient for birdwatching purposes. I didn't expect such a sophisticated menu for dinner; I'd rather had some simpler, more "local" food.
The location is fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was small with a short bed, but clean and functional. The restaurant was noisy Saturday night, but not enough to keep us awake.
very friendly and helpful people my bed. I found the memory foam mattress topper very uncomfortable, but after removing it I slept very well!
Good facilities with nice terrace, swimming pool, tennis court and lounge, good breakfast, room was tidy The room was pretty small and view was directly onto the neighbouring camping site so ask for a room with a nice view!
the hotel is in the middle of this great island, quiet location although near the main road, good breakfast, good bicycles they rent for cheap even after asking they did not clean the room and also even asking again they did not give us clean towels the indoor swimming pool was too cold for a nice swim
the laid back feel of the hotel, the friendly helpful staff and the extra facilities
The staff were very helpful and the room was excellent clean, spacious and very comfortable. The food, both diner and breakfast, were very good.
We had a very good stay. Although we didn't stay for dinner, breakfast was very good.
Hotel facilities are good and the staff were very friendly. Swimming pool was not warm enough to swim.
Very friendly staff, quiet location, free wireless internet (although around the lobby only). The 'heated' pool could have been a little warmer. Wireless internet in the rooms would have been nice.
Staff are extremely helpful and pleasant. Services are excellent and appropriate for the area. This hotel is not located near to the main villiages for those using public transport, but there is a bus stop about 15 minutes walk away and the hotel rents bikes, which makes it easy to get around.
I loved the beds but my kids complained about theirs. I thought the bathrooms were very nice and the food was excellent. The staff was extra helpful with our special needs and requests. No for the time, place and money it was an excellent buy.
Quiet countryside hotel with excellent food & good service by the small staff
not friendly staff
it was ok, in general. We had the un-pleasant surprise to be extra-charged with Eur 18 (2 persons) because of one night stay. On "booking.com" site it was something very vague about that, but not specifing any (possible) amount.
Kamers zijn modern en schoon. Kamers zijn ongezellig. Ontbijt is matig tot slecht. Kaas/vleesbeleg is niet gekoeld. Ham & eggs: ham is op, eggs zijn koud. Weinig keus uit (afbak)broodjes. Wordt niet fatsoenlijk bijgevuld. Al met al weinig keus. Alleen instant-sinaasappelsap.
Bath room facilities; breakfast; bike rentals; location; internet access Hotel lacks "character"; it is not "gezellig"
Nice reception area, good parking, friendly yet not very skilled staff (temps?), good breakfast, room was okay. PAYMENTS + HIDDEN COSTS! The one-night supplement of Eur 18 came as a surprise. It was in the small print after all yet not specified. A surcharge of over 20% of the room rate should be clearly mentioned. Booking.nl should not accept this sort of unclear pricing policy / tactics! This hotel wanted a prepayment for (just) an one night stay. When checking out, they ask me to pay again! I had to show them my receipt as proof of payment! This is not as professional as you would except.
Great setting near the beach, lovely food, spacious and comfortable room and very nice staff. We will be back in the future!
Breakfast, swimming pool, closeness to the beach, closeness to town
The hotel is situated nicely near the beach on the edge of the village, and there are many facilities in the hotel. The breakfast is adequate. The beds in the rooms were not quite suited for couples. The checkout-time of the hotel at 11am is quite early. Some basic things such as bathrobe or minibar were not available in any of the rooms, bathrobes could be rented. This makes the hotel come across as a bit cheap, since they also let you pay 3 euro for an informative map of the island.
A wonderful stay!! Everything was perfect for us. I did complain to the desk that my room was not cleaned properly and they fixed it right away. Also we ate at the restaurant several nights and our meal really took a long time. We have children and it was too long for them to wait. Once we got our food it was excellent.
Nothing special. Tried to charge breakfast when I did not have breakfast at the hotel. Watch your bill.
The kindness of the hotelstaff and the good atmosphere in the hotel. The many young kids there were.
Nice hotel, very friendly staff, good size room, lovely food. Close to the beach.
This hotel has a great location. You're literally 0.2 km from the beach. Bike rental close by lets you explore the island, and the restaurant de Herren xvii has amazing (if a bit pricey) food. If you stay here, try the restaurant. Also, although room service closes too early (for everything), with a little coaxing we got someone to come up with some hot water for tea. Even though I booked a suite, there was no mini bar and I had to go into the hallway to buy overpriced items from a vending machine. Hotel computers strictly enforce the check out time. We were having a (delicious) romantic breakfast downstairs and needed to get someone to open the door to our room for us, because it was a little past 11. Also, the fake fireplace on the wall was a little tacky.
very nice staff, wonderful breakfast, location was great.
Hotel personel were very friendly and nice. It is very quiet. I could sleep very well.
Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very good. Location was convenient. Price is very reasonable. Room faced the main road, so there was traffic noise during the day. Hotel is not on the dune, so there is no view of the sea, which is about 10 minutes away by walking. The staff were pleasant and accommodating but not always available and not very informative with restaurant recommendations.
It was clean, comfortable and quiet. The owners were gracious and helpful when I had questions and the site was ideal for my interests. The breakfast was well prepared and very good. Coffee and tea were available free at all times No. I was actually surprised at the quality. Easily one of the nicest small hotels I have stayed in anywhere in Europe.
good breakfast, room quite large, good value for money tv mounted to high could not be watched seated and cups for coffee and tea were very small, not able to pay by creditcard
Good breakfast. Walking distance from the beach and city center. Free parking at the hotel, free wireless internet.
very relaxing stay, professional staff, attentive, good service and very clean. Food good, excellent buffet breakfast selection.
It was a beautiful island and wonderful hotel stay. Our bathroom had a bathtub and separate shower - what a luxury to be able to take a bath after an afternoon of biking around Texel. We could rent bicycles directly from the hotel for a great price. Nice breakfast buffet and very large room.
The owners and staff offer great service. The town (de Cocksdorp) is an easy 10 minute walk from the hotel -- and while the town is small, it had the amenities we wanted (bike rental, some good restaurants, super market, pharmacy & shop that sold kites, blankets and other typical beach items. The breakfast was very nice. As we explored the island on bikes, we realized that while we could have located in de Koog which has LOTS going on, we were glad that we were in the quieter setting of de Cocksdorp where we it's more mellow, yet you can get to what you want fairly easily. Just great to stand on the top of the dike at sunset. The rooms are nice, if a bit small. (Bathroom was very modern, clean.) It was odd that we had a large bed which was made up of two double beds placed side-by-side. Not very comfortable if you're in the middle or for a couple... The pics of the hotel don't show that you're on a rural route that can be a bit busy. The backside of the hotel has the best views and would be most quiet.
The welcoming feeling at the arrival and every morning at breakfast, the helpfulness of the staff for further information and practical help, and the nice atmosphere created with the hotel guest were absolutely great!
The service is very friendly and exceptionnally helpful, my husband got sick and the person at the reception spent long time trying to call various medical services and then was very forthcoming (delayed check-out time etc). The backrooms haved very nice view! Very calm hotel, one can rest well. Fresh fruit salad and really good coffee! I am more into different sets of colours in the room design (it is a bit vintage style though everything is rather new) but this is question of taste
Large rooms, good beds.
The staff and the host could speak very clear english and were always very helpful when we asked for assistance. Internet access was available from the room for free +++++ The room did not have a bath just a shower, however this was clearly stated when we booked the room.
Staff very friendly and helpful. We appreciated the free use of wireless computing plus the free rent of DVDs and books. A relaxing place to stay ! The only point is that the breakfast starts at 08 30 and it is too late ! 08 00 am would be better to organise a whole day !
Good breakfast, nice sauna in the room and perfectly located in the centre of town The hotel is overpriced
Modern building with lots of light, sizeable bedroom, sauna in the room, super breakfast
The space in reception area. Close to beach. Lack of coffee machine in room
prima lokatie in gezellig centrum van De Koog, vlakbij het strand. Zeer ruime kamer. de stenen vloeren in de kamers en gangen maken het wel wat gehorig
The hotel's location enabled comfortable walking to the beach and also to Ecomare and also through the forest and along the sand dunes. Bus stops and taxi rank very close if walking not preferred. Plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. Very good breakfast. Usable balcony from room which allowed pleasant draught. No free WiFi access. No air-conditioning (my room). No hairdryer.
The room was comfortable but it is obviously a 'beach' hotel... There are no carpets - just tiled floors - I guess to make cleaning the inevitable sand and sea side gubbins up easier! But the place was clean and very much suited to purpose. The breakfast - included in the price was very good!
the hotel was well located I wish that the hotel staff would have had knowledge of the area. They seemed to have minimal knowledge about Texal that would be helpful to a tourist.
Quieteness of the place
The rooms were very clean. Very comfortable. Highly recommend the hotel. Will stay there again. There was no tea/coffee available in the room.
Room, Quality of Diner, well situated between "Highstreet" and beach Service/ Staff at the Restaurant
Quite, Good value for money. My room was good and private, Would not like it as much if the room was on the other side facing the car park.
Staff was polite and pleasant. Breakfast buffet was excellent. We had a pleasant stay.
location was close to the bus stop and maybe 10 min. walk to the beach. very close to shopping and restaurants there was no air conditioning and no fan in the room. Day time was really too hot to be in our room at all.
Goede locatie, in het centrum dichtbij strand en bos, grote en goed geëquipeerde kamer en badkamer, lekker ontbijtbuffet Kleine frigo in de kamer zou aangenaam zijn
Relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Close to amenities, but in a quiet location. Short walk to sandy beach. An earlier breakfast start time would be preferred.
hospitality, location, price where all very good. breakfast was ok. the room was very warm, due the the flat roof in combination with wheater.
Very well isolated and new rooms. Very friendly staff at the reception. I was missing a refrigerator and a hair dryer in the room. One of the cleaning women was unfriedly. I asked for new towels and shampoo and had the impression she did not want to give me these items.
We liked the room, service and breakfast no
everything was perfect, the location, the room, the staff was extremely friendly and helpfull nothing to comment
Excellent room; furnished tastefully - and comfortably, and plenty of space. Great bathroom. Spacious balcony. The hotel is in a terrific location, 2 to 3 minutes walk from the shopping strip, less than 10 minutes walk to the beach and less than that to the cycle path through the forest. Plus, the people who run the hotel have to count as two of the lovliest on the planet. Saying goodbye was the only drawback to my stay at Hotel Kogerstaete.
The friendliness of the staff and the location combined to make this long weekend one to remember
Very Friendly owners ! Great location, near to shopa and beach but no noise at night. Delicious breakfast, comfortable rooms and beds. Great hotel. Nothing !
One gets the warm feeling of being welcomed very personally into a family, room spotless, and special attention to every individual wish or request. smoker in the next room made the use of our own balcony unpleasant (luckily only the last day)
The staff was friendly and the hotel was silent, comfortable and allowed us to relax. One day we slept 11 hours. Impossible where we live. Of course,this was in November and we got a room on the back side of the hotel. Maybe a front room in summer can be noisier.
We like the personal hospitality of the hosts, which is rarely find here in The Netherlands. None
cleanliness, very nice breakfast
The room was simple, but with a great bathroom and open doors to the terrace
The friendly service The corridors can use a facelift.
Convenience of hotel for use of public transport.
Friendly staff. Could not make use of the bath after 10pm.
kindness of staff
The people were very nice and asked question in a nice way (so they were nicely personal). There was noise from the people upstairs (the floors were creeking). No noise from neighbors, but only from upstairs (and I heard form other they had the same experience). So I was awaken midnight and early morning.
I liked the friendly personel and the livingroom-like corner in the lobby with games like chess, rummy-cup etc. I missed a fohn in the bathroom.
Breakfast was ok Matress was poor - broken springs were digging into shoulders (note I reported this to the hotel in the morning). Noise from communal shower fan is high in room 18.
The fact that not all rooms have a toilet and shower and this was not very clear on the website.
Good location Pleasant room
A small, friendly hotel with superb views over the harbour. It was really individual, a very pleasant change from the chain-type of hotel room.
Very nice location. friendly people
All service was on high level, i recomend it for a people who wants comfort and romantic atmosphere. Just 6 rooms
Very clean, spotless, not a speck of dust. We have the panorama room which is under the sloping roof which I always like in the old antique houses. In front of the room there is a nice balcony facing the old harbour. I always adore this kind of charming old hotel with lots of characters rather than the modern boxy ones which make me feel like sleeping in an office.
The rooms aren't so spacious, but the hotel is so special because of it's location and sense of privacy because it has so few rooms. The views are just wonderful. It's really on the quieter side of Texel - especially during the tourist season. There only reason I would be hesitant to recommend it would be because I am tempted to selfishly keep it a secret! Although there are only stairs and no lift, we were lucky to be on the 2nd floor due to the noise that the clients of the bar/restaurant were making late at night.
Location, view, staff, room, food downstairs, everything perfect.
Friendly staff, good meals. Direct harbour view.
Wonderful location, bright clean and spaceous room with all you needed and lovely views over the harbour. Plentiful breakfast. We ate from the normal menu on our first night which was excellent if a little pricey so if you want to save a few euros ask for the lunch/bar menu. You can also hire bikes from the hotel for about 8euros a day; a great way to explore the island.
location, friendly staff not clear on bed sheet
Please write at least 15 wordsQuiet place in close proximity of a beach city. Clean with quiet service and good breakfast. no
Easy to find, friendly personel, big rooms.
Big rooms. Not expensive lunch. Friendly staff. But there wasn't any information in English, only Duch and German.
I like the appartment there was a lot of space, the breakfast was excellent so was the service. You can stay in one hotelroom with five persons. The hotel was nousy.
Dog friendly and close to nature reserve. Nice, quit surroundings. Friendly staff. Good restaurant. Late breakfast buffet (starting at 9:00 AM)
Farm/Forest location, and restaurant. Dinner and breakfast were quite good. Noise from other guests.
I loved my stay here! The staff, especially Karin, was such a pleasure to spend time with. The rooms are large and very comfortable and kept so clean during your stay. The restaurant and bar has a cozy atmosphere and it is a relaxing experience just being in there. Breakfast was always looked forward to and was a great way to start the day. It is super close to one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been on, and I live in San Diego! You can rent a bike for 6 Euros a day and bike the entire island. It is a wonderful place to spend with your partner. A place to be still and peaceful. I recommend it to all interested in visiting Texel. No complaints at all!
Plain, bathroom very narrow and tight. Our booking was lost for the first night. I am making a complaint.
The tavern was very nice, the decoration interesting. Furthermore, the location of the hotel was perfect in a nice, small village the jacuzzi did not work as mentionned in the information of the website and we had some problems to be able to use the sauna. On the second evening, we came back to the hotel at 22:30 and the front door was closed and all the lights off. We had not been informed how to get into the hotel under such circumstances and it took us a while to find that the staff had left a back door opened.
location and pricd the staff did not communicate to us well, especially about when the restaurant was open and the breakfast could have been better
Location of the hotel is excellent....hotel is located in a small village....very quiet and relaxing. The beds are poor. 2 single beds are joined as double bed but the beds are not comfortable at all.
Staff were quite rude. Room hadn't been cleaned properly and room was very noisy.
We loved the location in the small village of Den Hoorn. It was quiet and a perfect place for exploring the island of Texel. Dinner at the restaurant was good on the Saturday night but unfortunately the restaurant was closed on Sunday and Monday nights because there was little business.
The hotel is an extension of a fantastic restaurant, and the supreme professionalism and hospitality of Jef, Nadine and the rest of the team carries over to the hotel operation. The breakfast in itself is a reason to visit this fine establishment.
We were very pleased with our stay in this hotel.
Very friendly staff, good breakfast, great location.
wonderful location, very stylish and also comfortable and user-friendly
Great location. Spacious, spotless and comfortable rooms. Buffet breakfast was very good and slightly different every morning (which is nice if you stay a whole week.) Very friendly staff. A small fridge and tea/coffee making facility in the room would be appreciated.
the manager, Antoin. the view/location. the cleanliness, the simple, but really good breakfast.
The location and the beach style.
It is a convenient place for staying. And staffs are very friendly. The breakfast was really simple.
Had a comfortable relaxing stay. Would highly recomend this Hotel. The doors to the rooms were not sound efficient, could hear from the hall into the rooms.
The hotel was very clean. The hotel staff were friendly. The location of the hotel was excellent. I liked everything.
