The quitness and calmness, beatifull surroundings.
Very nice location and excellent bed Charging 17 euro for 24 hours in a hotel like this is over the top. I expect service. The also send one a survey. 10 minutes is far too long and it contains questions pushing you into a specific statement. deleted it.
The setting of the hotel was beautiful, the rooms lovely, the food great and the staff friendly & helpful. The pool and pool-side areas are lovely! We had believed the spa services would be more extensive and more professional than they were. In our view they were over-priced for the services received and we felt a little cheated by them. For example, the expensive 30 minute massage was actually 15-20 minutes with time left over to "lay and rest".
We stayed there many times over the years. ( For all above-mentioned reasons.) It is even better now that the hotel is totally smoke-free. And we like the 'new look' following their recent renovations (2008)). It is our favorite hotel in North Holland. We had an excellent service in the dining room the first evening. However, the second evening - they were short of staff - and it took much too long to eat a simple 4-course meal (19h00 to 22h30..)
It was all very good.
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.
The rooms are too small and you can understand what your neighbours are saying to each other.
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.
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.
we liked the location No tea/coffee making facilites in the room or in the guest area
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.
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.
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.
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!
Was not close to any other major cities nor were places open in Giethoorn late into the day.
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.
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 was friendly and helpful and the facilities were excellent. Location was perfect for exporing the area. Dinning room food was excellent.
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!!!!
Good service, nice Grandpa
Really friendly hotel, staff wanting to help. Boat hire gave extra incentive to stay longer. Good quality food
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
Very friendly staff, nice big pool
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.
Welcoming staff, countyside location, swimming-pool, free coffe and fruit in the ground floor.
Surroundings, nature The restaurant, only 5 main dishes in a 4star hotel restaurant. It was too easy to choose...
smoking fumes incorridor filtering into our room
the hotel was situatedin a very nice forest area. The swimming pool was very nice and the room was big.
employee kindness interior bit rundown
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
Very quiet, relaxing place. Very recommendable hotel. Very clean.
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.
Well positioned hotel in the grounds of the Oranjewoud park, clean, well maintained and with an excellent restaurant. Staff efficient and friendly.
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
Ambiance and friendly staff May be the rooms too hot
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.
Location, close to Thialf. Location, rather far away from city centre.
Friendly helpful staff and an excellant restaurant.
Staff very good , very modern, very clean and quiet
the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the location was perfect. it was extremely noisy, but overall value for money is excellent.
Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Nothing special about the hotel.
There was freezing.
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.
Excellent service and civility. A first class hotel\at affordable prices. Restaurant selection excellent
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.
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!
No fridge in room. Hot and uncomfortable.
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.
WIFI temporarilly failed
Interesting lobby and restaurant A strange smell in my room
pleasant staff, good food, very good breakfast buffet the room we stayed in was a little too small
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.
Staff very friendly & helpful Bathroom showers make no sense ..... 1/3 of a shower door with the shower located in the rear of the tub. Do you folks really like wet floors? Seems this is typical of Europe, but these deep tubs and crazy showers are accidents waiting to happen. Hope you have good insurance.
Easy to find and centrally located. The meal in the restaurant was disappointing.
Clean and pleasant room, good restaurent, convenient and spacious car park.
Good excess from main roads Soft-drink machine placed against my room. Noisy men and women in the room(s)
My stay was very enjoyable, the room was clean as well as the bathroom. In the bathroom we found the placement of the toilet roll very inadequate. The room was also a bit too warm.
Clean, nice staff, good value although a little far from gronigen which I ask for.
Great staff and good service
comfortable counter in the bathroom is a bit small
Large rooms. A excellent selection for breakfast.
Kindness of people and good ratio quality/price The wrong communication between web channels and the hotel.
Great area and good people did not have double beds
All staff were very friendly and accommodating safe did not work
the garden no
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 comfortable and relaxing no
good all round experiance
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.
Wifi internet connerction was deplorable
Checking out by 10:30am was inconvenient. All other hotels allow you to check out by 12am.
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.
The setting, ambiance and staff were very nice. There were good trails to walk our dog. The rooms were comfortable.
great area to hike, cycle, etc.
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
cannot comment as visit was for a funeral No tea or coffee facilities in bedroom
Very friendly & helpful staff.Very good eveinng dinners Room facilities a bit basic.
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!
Breakfast was very late
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
Friendly staff, big and spacious room and good restaurant. Nearby church bells provide a lot of noise on Sunday for 5 to 10 minutes.
Incredibly friendly staff, right on the Brink, bar and restaurant, beautiful room. One of the best hotels we've stayed in! Nothing
The service was excellent, the hotel was what we had expected as we had stayed at the Hotel the year before.A very relaxing village in the heart of Holland. The Church bell was a little annoying
Reasonable prices, good food, pretty location no internet access
excellent price, location and good menu
Stylish and quality finish , food good ,staff friendly and helpful .Located in a beautiful wooded area within picturesque Dwingaloo. Well recomended. Cryptic menu,no fridge and kettle in room.
Very good kitchen, friendly service all around. The dinner table that was reserved in advance was given away; The requested seperate beds were not available.
It is located in the centre of Dwingeloo, a touristy but nice village close to the National Park Dwingelerveld. We did not like the fact that we booked at Hotel Wesseling but our room was in the opposite building, in what used to be another hotel. Quality of the rooms may probably be the same, but the facilities and the general look and feel were certainly different, and less inviting. And it is not pleasant to have to go to the breakfast room in the pooring rain.
The room looked lovely, clean and pristine, the staff were helpfull and friendly During the night I constantly heard scuttling (probably rats or mice) in the wall cavities and along the roof (I rules out bats as they went along the beams). I got the worst nights sleep I have had in ages, which didn't exactly make me on top of the world for the next day, especially as I had to drive almost 300 miles back to Dunkirk at the end of it.
Helpful staff. Hotel clean. Nice quiet location about 20 minutes from Assen TT circuit. Excellent breakfast and evening meal. Meals in hotel restaraunt a bit expensive.
everything was made for a very pleasant stay: a great stop in time in very calm and relaxing atmosphere. waiting for next meetings to come back again soon !
The room was large, very well equipt, and extremely comfortable. Everything was perfect. Beautiful view of the waterway, excellent internet service, easy, free parking. Very quiet and peaceful.
Very pleasant hotel in lovely scenic spot. Generous portions for dinner. Good parking. We have visited three times. Need fly control in breakfast bar area.
Its magnificent surroundings, excellent food, relaxed atmosphere and outstanding service.
It was great from start to finish
The breakfast, the staff was nice Information about activities, public phone out of order
I liked the area the hotel the hotel was set in Everything was fine , a relaxing stay
I have stayed at this hotel four times now and it still cheers me up when i arrive. The staff are great, always helpful,the rooms are clean and cosy,the food is very good.
location, friendly helpful staff, free wifi
Very nice location. Balcony with view over waterfront. Comfortable room. Good breakfast buffet. On the morning of departure workmen started cleaning my balcony by hosing it down from the ground floor. The only problem - I was sitting on it enjoying the views. I got soaked and had to escape inside. Afterwards the balcony was clean but chair and table covered with muddy water. Strange end of a otherwise very nice stay at the hotel.
Very friendly and helpful hosts. Nice location near to the village centre which has a couple of good resturants/pubs. No bar, but they have 3 fridges in the breakfast room for you to keep your beer/drinks cool, and you can drink them in the small garden which has plenty of tables and seats. Very relaxing feel to the place.
Nice hotel clean and tidy Overbooked our room which was booked in oct 2009 so 2 of the party ended up in broom cupboard at a nearby 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
I was only at the hotel at night,and it was very quiet
Level of service was very good through attentive and very helpful people. Bedroom decore was modest.
Nice staff, to soft beds ,
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
Pleasant surroundings. Good location. Good sized rooms.
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.
it isn't a hotel but a kind of a hospital...
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.
Request for one large bed was not noticed - hotels has hardly one....
Friendly, helpful staff Restaurant closes at 21:00
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.
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.
