Service was good. Food delicious. Booking.com stated free wlan. Is only available in the restaurant and is not for free. The hotel explained it very politely and gave a voucher for 50 minutes. Is ok but not what was expected....
The 3* star hotel tried to provide 5* service. For example, change fronk-desk check-in with welcome coffee. Room is spacious with good furniture. Food (breakfast and dinner) is normal and overpriced. Curtains in both bedroom and bathroom are full of dust. The room we stayed is a cottage which is isolated in the yard.
Nice site, good breakfast
The hotel staffs were so kind and helpful. It was on Sunday and was very difficult to get a taxi or bus to go to Schokland. But they arranged a private tax for me. Finally, I could visit Schokland in addition to Kampen, which are very historical and interesting places. The room was on the river side and I really enjoyed a fantastic view from big windows. The breakfast was well prepared and was tasty. I spent a lovely time with Hotel van Dijk in Kampen
Environment is superb.Ladies in the service were helpfull. There were severel thing noticeable: Outer space and walls surrounding the Hotel was being painted thus heavy smell covered the room. No shower curtain was available leading to water splash everywhere. No fridge in the room. A few weeks ago ownership changed and many new initiatives for refurbishment and management were underway, not necessarily to the good of guests, but I believe after a while things will turn to normal. Of course construction work and cleaning work in and around the channel, just next door, exacerbated the situation.
It is definitely a quiet, relax and romanic place. I totally got a full refresh after the short stay over there. Thumb Up!
we liked the location No tea/coffee making facilites in the room or in the guest area
The rooms are too small and you can understand what your neighbours are saying to each other.
Great location; friendly staff; clean and tidy; great breakfast; easy access to parking and other facilities. For our liking the mattresses were too soft, but that is a personal preference. The hotel also seemed to be a thoroughfare for tourists with no connection to the hotel.
An excellent location close to the city center with shops but also close to the channelsystem with its charming houses. This family run hotel has a staff that really cares for the guests. We forgot some items when we checked out and the manager phoned our next hotel in Amsterdam. We strongly recommend this hotel when you travel to Geithorn. This little town is a fantastic place with all pitoresque channels and houses. Really the Venice of the North. The town without roads.
Hotel very clean, Good breakfast with excellent selection, Hotel is right on the Geithorn canal where you can rent a boat. Rest. is closed for renovation until late summer of 07. Meanwhile breakfast is served in a modular building. This is a very minor point as the breakfast and service are excellant.
Would have liked to check in earlier than 3 pm, but aside from that it was very nice. Newly remodeled inside , I think, as the rooms were nice, and the bath was great, with a tub and shower. The dining room was beautiful, with fresh flowers, and good food at a reasonable price. The decor, lovely.;the dining staff good. As for location, it is perfect, right on the canal, with boat for hire. or footpath for walking; plenty to see, with the lovely homes on islands, and resturaunts along the canal. an adventure in beauty is what i would call the town of Geethoorn. The hotel is very convienient to the attraction, which is the town. The stairs were difficult to climb with luggage to our rooms.
The hotel owner was very friendly. We checked in early but still she let us in a very comforting way. The room coupled with breakfast was definately worth the money.
No hay plabras.Fantastico. Highly recommended. Giethorn is after Amsterdam the most touristic village in Netherlands (1 million per year) but is only known in Netherlands -only 20% are foreigners- so we should discover it !!!. The hotel is really great .... you can rent bicycles and electrical boats there. The rooms are very big, all new and nice. 10 over 10. No tengo ninguna.
Good service, nice Grandpa
Small and simple hotel with excellent staff -- very friendly, very helpful. Fine hotel for a short stay. The breakfast was inadequate: the coffee we got served was lukewarm and the toast was old. The scrambled egg was great, even though there was very little left when we had breakfast and nothing was resupplied.
the staff is excellent, kind and helpful! decoration of the restaurant no
Really friendly hotel, staff wanting to help. Boat hire gave extra incentive to stay longer. Good quality food
Manager was very good and the food was excellent
We were made welcome from the minute we entered the Hotel, everyone went out of their way to accommodate us, we were given information,maps, weather forecasts and anything we asked for. Generally this is a first class hotel with first class treatment. I would not say that I did not like the breakfast but I think their could have been a more varied selection, there was only one juice, two cereals, one yogurt and no toaster for scrambled eggs on toast!!!!
The owners were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and had lots of suggestions for places to visit. The meals were excellent and even a last-minute order for vegetarian food was no problem. Just a lovely place to stay. There was nothing we did not like
The staff was friendly and helpful and the facilities were excellent. Location was perfect for exporing the area. Dinning room food was excellent.
Was not close to any other major cities nor were places open in Giethoorn late into the day.
nice hotel. Good breakfast We asked about an extra bed, but it was denied. I cannot see why this was impossible.
Enormous room with fantastic views The large shrimp I ordered in the restaurant were completely overcooked and tasteless. But the service was excellent
Remote location - situated in the polder (an area of reclaimed land from the sea) - therefore nights are very quiet (and dark outside the hotel grounds !) Had to pay for WiFi - these days that should be free, considering the low cost to the hotel. (they have a high speed glass-fibre connection like most hotel establishments and many houses in the cities now)
Room was not airconditioned and the window could not open. We had to open the door leading onto a communal balcony as it was just too warm. Also traffic in the corridors could easily be heard.
Quiet Equipment under repairment. Should be quoted on booking.com
Great breakfast, nice large rooms, quiet although we were at the rear of the hotel. Helpful staff.. Dinner was abit expensive..
Very clean, well located, a good value for money, the restaurant of a very good level. not very nice smell around, not really much to do around.
the facilities are great, the room was nice and the bathroom is really good, the breackfast is really good and the restaurant for dinner is very good.
I really enjoyed the standing of the hotel (for instance, the fitness room and the sauna). And also the ground floor which is really lovely and nice. We felt almost like home. The blankets were not perfectly clean.
Comforatble bed. Directions to the hotel given by the receptionist were not clear at all,and this should be improved.
very scenic..food is very good, clean, price was good, for the time we were there. Rooms very sparten, very few outlets, no hair dryers , tiny tv, lots of stairs,
The private sun room with the forest view was great for relaxing. The room was large and comfortable. The restaurant was excellent (a bit pricy, but worth it). Staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The wireless internet availability was too unreliable in my room to be useful - if I wanted to check email, upload photos, use VOIP to call the US, etc. I had to go into the hallway or to the cafe/bar to use the internet, which was a bit inconvenient. (Admittedly, this problem may not exist in other rooms.) The internet option was also more expensive than I've seen in other hotels.
Restaurant menu was very good The bathroom and toilet were just large enough.
excellent breakfast shower area could be improved, no hairdryer available
Very attentive staff. Interesting history to the building. Convenient location for touring the area.
the room was very clean and the beds where great, the dining places outside as well as inside where very atmospheric beds where separated
Lovely surroundings and friendly staff
excellent food i would like the room to have been a little warmer
Good location, friendly staff, free wifi and very good food Food was a bit expensive
Nice and cosy little hotel with a warm welcome. Unfortunately I came a wednesday were apparantly services and restaurant are closed, so not possible to eat there, nor getting an iron as requested. However they did prevent me in the morning about the closed restaurant, allowing me to simply dine on my way to the hotel. A water boiler with coffee/tea and some biscuits in the room would have been nice.
Very good food, nice clean rooms, helpful staff.
the accomodation offered to us was an old but two floors bulding (!) in a very quite and peaceful location. Excellent food and breakfast no options for bars or restaurants (only two) in walking distance
No internet in hotel.
Safe, free parking. Friendly, helpful staff. Very satisfied with the rooom that faced street. Location is very central in Gaasterland. Restaurant across the road is sometimes too noisy til late at night.
Extremely friendly staff. Excellent restaurant downstairs. Free car park available on the spot. Local youth getting extremely loud at 4 a.m. (loud music played from their car). Hot/Cold water in the shower difficult to regulate - you either get water that is too cold or too hot. No internet available at all (contrary to what's advertised on the website).
The rooms are new (not sure if all rooms are) so this adds to the feel of luxury. The bathroom was beautiful and very very clean... I felt reborn after showering here, it felt like a spa. A designer must have chosen the bathroom design, tiles etc. Simple, new, decent, and magnificent. The beds are fantastic, the pillows are the nicest ones you can have. Breakfast buffet is simple, but there's enough choice and was very good. The coffee is very good. Loved the stay even if it was only one night.
The countryside environment
Nice rooms, restaurant good and not too pricy. Breakfast not bad but could be upgraded
Homely friendly - good location, food and beer!
Excellent personal service. Big breakfast. Excellent food. Rooms light clean and airy. A lovely place for a break or just to stay.
Friendliness of staf and food quality. Room also very comfortable.
Friendly, attentive staff.
The free internet connection was superb! The surroundings was nice.
Modern room. Friendly staff. Good internet connection - cable supplied by hotel. Good size room with large balcony - would be pleasant in warm weather. Breakfast was ok but the coffee was cold. Poor lighting in the room. No extra pillows in the room.
A superb friendly hotel with very friendly locals bar and restaurant. really made to feel welcome.
Just convenient for me to visit family in town. The cafe and terrace is quite ambient but the hotel itself needs a good overhaul stairs and lift could do with an upgrade. Generally looking tired.
Easy location for family visit needs refurb, such as the lift.
The room was spacious and clean, the service was outstanding. The lift was obviously not modernized with the rest of the hotel, but it had a minimal impact on our experience.
I like the comfort of the bed. And the toiletries in the bathroom. I like the good breakfast and proximity to the city center/shopping. Its not a value for money hotel.
the staff were very helpful and the room they gave us was excellent......the food service and bar service was first class. all was OK !!!!!!!!
Great Rooms. Very good staff The lift
The good location for business purposes in the neighbourhood.Excellent beakfast
Friendly hotel staff, good standard of rooms. Local market was held in front of the hotel on the Thursday morning.
Kindly staff. Good after dinner cafe' in the hall.
