the laid back feel of the hotel, the friendly helpful staff and the extra facilities
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
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.
Quiet countryside hotel with excellent food & good service by the small staff
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!
Hotel facilities are good and the staff were very friendly. Swimming pool was not warm enough to swim.
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.
We had a very good stay. Although we didn't stay for dinner, breakfast was very good.
The staff were very helpful and the room was excellent clean, spacious and very comfortable. The food, both diner and breakfast, were very good.
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.
Punctual staff, no noise problems and good clean room.
The hotel accommodation was fully in line with our expectations and more: nice large rooms, quiet and beautiful location, great breakfast with lots of choice, leisure facilities, ... Our terras could have been a little bit bigger ...
Friendly staff, very large room (larger than logical, actually, a result of the cross-shaped design). Free internet access (though slow and spotty, at times). Good location away from the crowded main street, but just a 5 minute walk. Convenient, free (unsecured) parking. Convenient bike rentals at 6.50 EUR per day. Patio. Slightly dated design.
easy check in check out, good looking receptionists, good breakfast for kids. boring decor
-very easy for kids -spacious and confortable rooms
Easy parking Heating system in the room
included sauna and turkish steambath, good restaurant and breakfast! very spacious room. a watercooker and some tea/coffee in the hotelroom would be nice. for a hot drink in the evening one is obliged to go downstears to the bar
The friendliness of the staff, the size of the room (much value for money) and the breakfast buffet was really good.
The coffee making machine in the room did not make HOT coffee.
Everything worked out perfectly for us. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and the condition of the rented bikes was surprisingly good. The noise from a circus on the nearby parking, but I think that is a summer event that cannot be avoided.
not friendly staff
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.
Bath room facilities; breakfast; bike rentals; location; internet access Hotel lacks "character"; it is not "gezellig"
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.
Great setting near the beach, lovely food, spacious and comfortable room and very nice staff. We will be back in the future!
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.
Breakfast, swimming pool, closeness to the beach, closeness to town
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.
very nice staff, wonderful breakfast, location was great.
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.
Nothing special. Tried to charge breakfast when I did not have breakfast at the hotel. Watch your bill.
- spacious tidy rooms - great breakfast buffet - beds too soft and 2 seperate matresses and duvets. No other beds available! not very romantic on your weekend get away. - walls are as thin as paper. - even though we had a "quiet" room, i could still hear the chanting of footballsongs when the bars closed -rooms too hot
The breakfast was great and the room was clean. The mattress was too old and the hotel staff a bit grumpy.
Nice, clean room with great bathroom. Breakfast was elaborated. Rooms located on the streetside can experience some discomfort from the noise on the street.
The hotel was situated in the very heart of the village de Koog. Our room was located directly above restaurants which caused a lot of noise during the night. Even when it was mentioned when booking this room, it surprised us.
Central position; Breakfast buffet; Excellent restaurant; Kindly and friendly staff. Parking not available: not enough room for all the cars of the guests.
Relaxed hotel. At the top of the town and close to the beach (5 minute walk)
Nice & clean room, location close to the beach, tasty breakfast, room to the back of the hotel very quiet (even the sea could be heard) There is a club in front of the hotel which may make staying in certain rooms unpleasant
I really liked the design of the room and the size of it. The bathroom was really nice and the shower as well.
nice big room walking distance from the beach, nice service, good food
quiteness bed wasn't comfortable.
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 !
Large rooms, good beds.
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 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
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.
very relaxing stay, professional staff, attentive, good service and very clean. Food good, excellent buffet breakfast selection.
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!
We liked the friendly atmosphere at the hotel. The staff was very friendly. The dinners were excellent and very tasty!
Very friendly staff, nice breakfast, fantastic view from the Restaurant
Very friendly staff and great dinner! very quiet too.
location, offer of tea/coffe on arrival, free wif-fi, good breakfast
The consideration and helpfulness of the staff. Central to all the islands towns and attractions.
It's positioning in the countryside near the beach. The breakfast buffet was good. The staff's attitude
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.
Hotel personel were very friendly and nice. It is very quiet. I could sleep very well.
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.
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.
Very nice hotel. Very supportive and friendly staff at the hotel and at the resturant. Excellent breakfast, they had perfect control that our oldest son had required gluten free menu and not least gluten free bread - perfect! We really do recommend this hotel. A small thing, but when you read about the facilities at the hotel, it says sauna and steam bath. There was no sauna except from one in of the rooms. Please be clearer about this.
great location a computer available to guests for internet access would have been nice.
The breakfast was excellent and the parking was convenient. The bathroom was clean and new. The bathroom with the jacuzzi was great. There was no lift which made it difficult for elderly people to climb the stairs. The toilet paper dispenser was very far from the toilet.
Nice hotel, terras in the sun, friendly staff, excellent restaurant
You couldn't ask to be closer to the centre of Den Berg. The hotel staff were very obliging with all of our requests. Breakfast was of good quality as were the restaurant meals. Two points, both which are negligible. 1. There is no lift in the hotel, but being such a historic building it would be unacceptable to try and install one. 2. There were no hotel instructions or menus written in English, but hey, we were the visitors and the staff were excellent in giving translations.
peacefull, good friendly service, good food in restaurant, good bars my bed was not a double as requested but two singles pushed together
Good size of room, very clean. Pleasant outside terrace. Poor service in restaurant
We had a fantastic stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Lovely hotel, wonderful staff, terrific location in Amsterdam. Difficult to find by car, and parking is outrageously expensive.Breakfast was very nice. Everything else about the hotel was terrific. Typically European, the rooms are modest in size, nicely appointed. Nice touches, like coffee and treats are available, nice sitting area for in between activities or meetings. If you like a private, intimate hotel, you will love this hotel. If you want a large spacious chain, this is not your place. I really enjoyed this hotel, but you need to know that this is not a big hotel with work out rooms,conference facilities, pools,etc.
location, disponibility of the staff, good breakfast the bed (mattress) was not very good, not hard enough
The space in reception area. Close to beach. Lack of coffee machine in room
The rooms were very clean. Very comfortable. Highly recommend the hotel. Will stay there again. There was no tea/coffee available in the room.
Quieteness of the place
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.
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!
Modern building with lots of light, sizeable bedroom, sauna in the room, super breakfast
Good breakfast, nice sauna in the room and perfectly located in the centre of town The hotel is overpriced
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.
Room, Quality of Diner, well situated between "Highstreet" and beach Service/ Staff at the Restaurant
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
hospitality, location, price where all very good. breakfast was ok. the room was very warm, due the the flat roof in combination with wheater.
everything was perfect, the location, the room, the staff was extremely friendly and helpfull nothing to comment
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.
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.
We liked the room, service and breakfast no
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)
We like the personal hospitality of the hosts, which is rarely find here in The Netherlands. None
Very nice location. friendly people
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.
Good location Pleasant room
location, friendly staff not clear on bed sheet
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.
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.
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.
All service was on high level, i recomend it for a people who wants comfort and romantic atmosphere. Just 6 rooms
Please write at least 15 wordsQuiet place in close proximity of a beach city. Clean with quiet service and good breakfast. no
Big rooms. Not expensive lunch. Friendly staff. But there wasn't any information in English, only Duch and German.
Easy to find, friendly personel, big rooms.
The staff are friendly and helpful
The food, atmosphere, cleanliness & location.
Location, friendly staff, wonderful room, good food They should make clearer the position regarding vehicular access to the hotel.
Location, atmosphere and friendly staff
Breakfast is the best part of this stay. The stairs is quite tiny. We had hard time to put our suitcase upstairs. And nobody helped us 2 girls?! The stuff is not very helpful. We have to walk 10 minutes to information office for anything. House-made wine is not very tasteful.
The staff were so friendly and helpful, while its central location was excellent. The pillows were very hard!
Very nice hotel and superfriendly staff.For less than 100 euros for a double room its good value for money. My partner didnt like the bells of a nearby church tolling in the very early morning.
The staff were very helpful & friendly
Nice staff, friendly, helpful The church right across the street has a bell that chimes every half hour 24 hours a day
Friendly staff. Could not make use of the bath after 10pm.
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.
The friendly service The corridors can use a facelift.
The room was simple, but with a great bathroom and open doors to the terrace
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.
kindness of staff
cleanliness, very nice breakfast
The fact that not all rooms have a toilet and shower and this was not very clear on the website.
Convenience of hotel for use of public transport.
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 kindness of the staff. it's a bit far from the villages...
People are so friendly there, I feel like among friends. I specially like the owner "Sir" Walter and his wife Ria. They make me feel at home. When the plane starts to fly, it's a bit noisy.
Very nice hotel on a wonderful place. This was a very pleasant trip. The room are full of equipements such as jaccuzzi sauna . . . the boss is very welcoming. Great hotel !!!! book now !!
The service, the room (top) and the view Nothing, it was perfect for us
Very nice, excellent location. very friendly staff
very hospital and kind staff/owners. Although an airport may normally not be a nice area, this is the exception - seeing parachutists and small planes landing in your backyard is quite fun to watch!
