Very friendly & helpful staff.Very good eveinng dinners Room facilities a bit basic.
Breakfast was very late
The setting, ambiance and staff were very nice. There were good trails to walk our dog. The rooms were comfortable.
I loved the historic feel of the hotel - renovated from an old home and the ambience was very warm and European - it reminded me of the show Faulty Towers except they were very professional. The rooms were very small but I understand there's going to be a big renovation.
great area to hike, cycle, etc.
cannot comment as visit was for a funeral No tea or coffee facilities in bedroom
Staff very helpfull,nice reception areas, we ate at a restaurant owned by the owners in the town and the food was outstanding Bedrooms very dated, perhaps need updating
The staff were so helpful, for example, when we would leave for work too early for breakfast, they would pack us a breakfast/lunch and leave outside out door - even on coming home, they didn't let us go without food and drink for the journey. They even gave us a lift to the railway as they thought it was too far to walk! Certainly a true family environment, and equally as caring1 Absolutely nothing we can put in this box!
The hotel is designed as modern farm house, which feels great. Lovely library. Located in the countryside, the hotel is quiet & it's fun walking in the area. It would be nice to have a kettle in the room. The restuarant is very pricey, hardly a variety for vegeterians. Since it's remote - there are no real options to dine out.
What we like best about staying at Huis Ten Wolde was the friendly family who own and run the place, the delicious meals in the restaurant on the premises and the absolute cleanliness of the room. We would stay again when in town! Lovely view from the room which was in the back of the hotel, top floor. No, not really!
this hotel has no frills more like a youth hostel but the fact that it is right on the lake and close to the village excellent breakfast too well make up for its simplicity. runners on the bunk beds very apinful on the feet ! and also the mirrors a bit too high for average height.( I think a very very tall Dutch person installed those!!!) It did make us laugh.
The facilities were fine, but we did run into a few difficulties. I had booked and paid for and confirmed a room with a private bath for 100 Euro. When we arrived, we were told that our room was given away and that we could either take a small cabin without the same facilities or we could find other accommodations in the nearest town, Sneek. We were told that by taking the cabin accommodations we would get a refund of 50 Euro the next morning. When we were ready to leave the next morning, no one was available to give the refund, and breakfast was not even started.
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)
nice hotel. Good breakfast We asked about an extra bed, but it was denied. I cannot see why this was impossible.
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..
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.
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.
Comforatble bed. Directions to the hotel given by the receptionist were not clear at all,and this should be improved.
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.
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.
Staff very good , very modern, very clean and quiet
There was freezing.
Friendly helpful staff and an excellant restaurant.
Quiet hotel. Nice environment (golf). Excellent starting point for a bike tour. Breakfast and dinner were alright. Asked for a non-smokers room. However, stayed in a smokers room. The weather was fine, so, we slept well with windows wide open.
The hotel had very good bicycles for guests to use; they might provide the service of a good old fashioned "fietspomp" in addition to the bykes.
Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Nothing special about the hotel.
Location, close to Thialf. Location, rather far away from city centre.
Clean hotel, friendly staff, good value, have stayed frequently and will continue to stay in the future. Bars of soap have been replaced by little bottles of soap which are a bit inconvenient. The restaurant is very average - it used to be superb. Either the chef has changed or the ingredients. If it's the chef, please get the old chef back for a week to train the new one.
the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the location was perfect. it was extremely noisy, but overall value for money is excellent.
Excellent service and civility. A first class hotel\at affordable prices. Restaurant selection excellent
Ambiance and friendly staff May be the rooms too hot
location, pool, dinner (though expensive), breakfast
Location was nice, quiet, and their dining experience was excellent. An airconditioning unit would have been highly appreciated, during the hot summer months
This hotel has it all. Great facilities, clean and comfortable rooms and excellent restaurants where the food and service were fantastic. Its ideal for a peaceful weekend away in lovely surroundings but easy to find. Probably the nicest "chain" hotel I've stayed in
smoking fumes incorridor filtering into our room
employee kindness interior bit rundown
Very quiet, relaxing place. Very recommendable hotel. Very clean.
Well positioned hotel in the grounds of the Oranjewoud park, clean, well maintained and with an excellent restaurant. Staff efficient and friendly.
De kamers waren schoon en netjes, fijn terras buiten, mooie omgeving, vriendelijk personeel, helemaal goed! Ontbijtbuffet was na 10.00 uur al bijna helemaal leeg.. gelukkig waren wij er voor 10.00 uur maar een tweede rondje zat er niet in.
the hotel was situatedin a very nice forest area. The swimming pool was very nice and the room was big.
we liked the location No tea/coffee making facilites in the room or in the guest area
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.
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.
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 rooms are too small and you can understand what your neighbours are saying to each other.
It is definitely a quiet, relax and romanic place. I totally got a full refresh after the short stay over there. Thumb Up!
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.
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.
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.
Welcoming staff, countyside location, swimming-pool, free coffe and fruit in the ground floor.
The atmosphere is nice. It makes you feel at home. No
The large and well furnished room. Extra facilities such as washing machine and bicycle hire. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was poor. No choice of size and style of hire bicycles one of which needed attention.
Very friendly staff, nice big pool
Surroundings, nature The restaurant, only 5 main dishes in a 4star hotel restaurant. It was too easy to choose...
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.
WIFI temporarilly failed
Site states WiFi in room. This is not true and only allows access to Windows PC's in the Resturant, where staff pester you for drinks all the time.
pleasant staff, good food, very good breakfast buffet the room we stayed in was a little too small
cosy, friendly hotel with a good kitchen. Friendly and efficient staff. excellent breakfast with fresh orange juice. I would suggest to ad some fresh tomatoes to the breakfast which is for the rest outstanding.
Interesting lobby and restaurant A strange smell in my room
No fridge in room. Hot and uncomfortable.
it was very chaotic when we left the hotel, couldn't find our names in comp. etc. Wrong reservatons for wrong dates, we changed all those things when we checked in but when I checked out still wrong information about us! Confusing!
Really friendly hotel, staff wanting to help. Boat hire gave extra incentive to stay longer. Good quality food
Good service, nice Grandpa
Was not close to any other major cities nor were places open in Giethoorn late into the day.
The staff was friendly and helpful and the facilities were excellent. Location was perfect for exporing the area. Dinning room food was excellent.
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
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.
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
Generous room sizes--and a gloriously deep bath. Staff were friendly. We would have appreciated being told we had to book dinner well in advance--on the Saturday night the restaurant was full and we were obliged to go out to the nearest town.
Very clean, comfortable, the rooms are big with very nice design, dinner is very good, the staff was very responsive and helped with all questions No free internet in the rooms
The breakfast was very good - lots to choose from, fresh and local products, in a nice atmosphere. The room looked old-fashioned, it seemed that most of the furniture and curtains etc still were from the nineties. Furthermore, as the hotel was in the middle of nowhere, you'd expect it to be romantic (what else there is to do but stare in each others eyes?) but it was really not. In general, I think there are many hotels in the Netherlands that deliver more value for money.
a very relaxed pleasant atmosphere good food
Staff were friendly, professional and flexible for our strange schedule (3 year old early dinner, late arrival of cyclists) despite being busy. The food was excellent, both dinner and breakfast, and the room was spacious and comfortable, especially for the 150km cyclists. If the sun had shone, it would be a perfect location with the swimming pool, gardens, and terraces.
Fantastic place to stay! would recommend it to any one visiting northern Holland.
This is an excellent hotel - a bit hard to find, but a great staff, large rooms, great value for the money!
Excellent food, comfortable rooms, relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. Enjoyed the outdoor heated pool and tennis court. The interior of the rooms is quite dated, old television, no DVD player and bit smelly sofa in our room and in the lounge.
Friendliness, attention to detail and overall hospitality.
good tailored service. nice peaceful location. nice small pool with sauna.
Excellent location : good size, clean room with lovely views. Lovely dining room / location Room was in old section of hotel, and rather damp. Dinner was of good quality, but extremely over-priced. Service was slow. The wine list contained highly-priced wines, which were out of synch with the quality of the meal.
Service excellent and quality of food also excellent Price of restaurant food and drinks was incredibly and excessively expensive
Very clean, staff really helpful especially the blonde girl when we arrived (sorry don't know her name). The food was not only good value the quality was excellent. None all positive
The homy athmosfare.
Level of service was very good through attentive and very helpful people. Bedroom decore was modest.
Nice staff, to soft beds ,
it isn't a hotel but a kind of a hospital...
Pleasant surroundings. Good location. Good sized rooms.
I was only at the hotel at night,and it was very quiet
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful they made the checkin easy and accomadated us in the restaurant at short notice, breakfast had a good selection and the hotel rooms were very clean. An ideal short stay hotel
the kitchen closed at 8.30 so you were unable to have any food after this time. The staff were v helpful and allowed us to eat a take away in the bar. Te rooms were ex retirement homes so ours had a shower seat in it and there were pull bars everywhere. i think this should be made clearer, my daughter room was next to some one that was in the home as the doors and lifts were dual access, she would not sleep in the room on her own as the " old" people creeped her out as she cold hear someone coughing, it was so loud we had to put the tv on all night to try and drown it it. the residents ate in the restaurant with their friends and family so it felt like we were staying in a care home not a hotel was v strange. on a plus point the beds were
Large room well situated to town
good all round experiance
very comfortable and relaxing no
All staff were very friendly and accommodating safe did not work
Wifi internet connerction was deplorable
Checking out by 10:30am was inconvenient. All other hotels allow you to check out by 12am.
Great area and good people did not have double beds
Kindness of people and good ratio quality/price The wrong communication between web channels and the hotel.
the garden no
Very convenient to a stay in the town of Steenwijk. Most guests will arrive by car, but it's only a 15 min. walk from the train station and 20 min. walk to/from the town center. Try to set time aside for that most Dutch activity: biking!! Easy and cheap to rent a bike at the train station. There's a forest to the North, heathery landscape to the East and unique Giethoorn with it's wetlands and small lakes to the south. All roads/trails well marked, icecream, snackbar, cute eating places everywhere.
friendly and helpfull staff- large, clean rooms with a desk-good breakfast-good bed an TV-free internet-good value for money. the signal of the free internet is not always stable or strong enough.
Very attentive staff. Interesting history to the building. Convenient location for touring the area.
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.
excellent breakfast shower area could be improved, no hairdryer available
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,
Restaurant menu was very good The bathroom and toilet were just large enough.
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
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.
Very good food, nice clean rooms, helpful staff.
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).
No internet in hotel.
Friendly, helpful staff Restaurant closes at 21:00
We had a desent room, the restaurant is very nice and the staff was very friendly. Food was excellent.
Rooms are clean and cosy, under condition, that you will force staff to give you renewd room. Not renewd are real tragedy, not worth even 20Euro...
I liked the service from the hotel, the room was very clean and comfortable, bathroom well equiped... No
The dining room position and view and the little gift on the bed The bathroom could be refurbished
Good size rooms with excellent shower facility. Motel style. Very good breakfast. For my taste too near the motorway and too far from town centre. Had I known I would have stayed somehwre else. My fault for not researching properly.
Comfort of the bed, quiteness of the room, friendliness of front desk personnel. 2 Things:1) the internet connection was not accessible in my room, and when I was in the front side wing of the hotel it dropped connection a few times, so that could be improved with more robust systems. 2) the scrambled eggs for breakfast in the buffet were not fully cooked and were watery.
the hotel staff is very kind, the room is comftorable and clean there was no wlan reception inside the room only in the lobby, the hotel is not in a walking distance from the center.
Too noisy all night. Couldn't sleep.
Request for one large bed was not noticed - hotels has hardly one....
A superb friendly hotel with very friendly locals bar and restaurant. really made to feel welcome.
Nice rooms, restaurant good and not too pricy. Breakfast not bad but could be upgraded
Friendliness of staf and food quality. Room also very comfortable.
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.
The countryside environment
The free internet connection was superb! The surroundings was nice.
Friendly, attentive staff.
Excellent personal service. Big breakfast. Excellent food. Rooms light clean and airy. A lovely place for a break or just to stay.
Homely friendly - good location, food and beer!
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.
Good location, friendly staff, free wifi and very good food Food was a bit expensive
the room was very clean and the beds where great, the dining places outside as well as inside where very atmospheric beds where separated
excellent food i would like the room to have been a little warmer
Lovely surroundings and friendly staff
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.
