Ambiance and friendly staff May be the rooms too hot
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.
location, pool, dinner (though expensive), breakfast
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.
Location was nice, quiet, and their dining experience was excellent. An airconditioning unit would have been highly appreciated, during the hot summer months
the hotel was situatedin a very nice forest area. The swimming pool was very nice and the room was big.
Well positioned hotel in the grounds of the Oranjewoud park, clean, well maintained and with an excellent restaurant. Staff efficient and friendly.
smoking fumes incorridor filtering into our room
Clean and pleasant room, good restaurent, convenient and spacious car park.
Clean, nice staff, good value although a little far from gronigen which I ask for.
Easy to find and centrally located. The meal in the restaurant was disappointing.
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.
comfortable counter in the bathroom is a bit small
Large rooms. A excellent selection for breakfast.
Good excess from main roads Soft-drink machine placed against my room. Noisy men and women in the room(s)
Great staff and good service
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.
Superb accommodation and service,high quality cuisine and a very warm welcome from reception staff. I hope that there will be better directions identifying hotel from main road for overseas visitors.
Brand new business hotel with very big room and bathroom. No mini bar
The room was excellent. The standard of food in the restaurant was high.
The staff were excellent from the very first welcome. The rooms are very spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The restaurant was very good and the food first class. It would be a good idea to have a menu in English in the restaurant as Dutch is not a very commonly spoken language internationally. (French or German would also be acceptable but English remains most uiniversal.)
The decor, extreme comfort, courtesy of staff, cleanliness,food, view, bathroom. Everything! There was nothing we didn't like!
There was freezing.
Excellent service and civility. A first class hotel\at affordable prices. Restaurant selection excellent
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.
Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Nothing special about the hotel.
Staff very good , very modern, very clean and quiet
Friendly helpful staff and an excellant restaurant.
the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the location was perfect. it was extremely noisy, but overall value for money is 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.
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.
Location, close to Thialf. Location, rather far away from city centre.
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.
Very friendly staff, nice big pool
The atmosphere is nice. It makes you feel at home. No
Surroundings, nature The restaurant, only 5 main dishes in a 4star hotel restaurant. It was too easy to choose...
spacious, clean family room. nice bathroom. Good restaurant. Beds not comfortable (mattresses too soft). Hotel staff not professional, not helpful. At reception staff could not understand and was not able to answer questions (in english) like "do you serve breakfast a la carte?", or "can you recommend a nice bike trail nearby?". Children room not safe, too many furniture sharp edges, beware of in-room accidents. Parking-facing rooms are noisy and not offer value for money if you're seeking quiete coutryside holiday. WiFi extremely slow (couldn't use VoIP or streaming video) and very expensive.
Lovely hotel, attentive staff, clean, comfortable & well looked after rooms - what more could you need?
Hôtel reception, restaurant and bar are really nice. Tower rooms are a good value for money The staff was not that pleasant. I use to stay in other Van der Valk hotel with much more friendly staff!
I always like the proximity to my family that lives in the area and the friendliness of everyone, staff and others. I only wish they had better beds... Queen or King size, instead of two twin beds pushed together...
When we arrived in the evening, we asked to have dinner. Even if it was a bit late 21:30, it was still possible to eat. But the waiters told us that it was not possible to have dinner in the restaurant so the served us dinner at the bar which was not very comfortable.
Great room, nice interior, good breakfast.
Excellent staff service
The room was splendid. Surroundigs were nice with children. Nice little village with friendly people.
excellent service very clean and tidy no complains at all
nice and new hotel breakfast for our 7 years old child for 1O,5O it is a lot of
Central location Having to check out at 11:30 am
Nice, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff - the breakfast was exceptionally fine! Move the flat screens closer to the beds. You may then turn the volume down which would probably be nice for the people in the next room.
Quality for the price Single rooms are quite small
First time at a B&B so I had to learn the system. Room key also opens the hotel front door. Rooms are good sized and look newly furnished. Excellent breakfast in the small dining room. Good location, can walk to shopping, restaurant area.
Practical convenience, independence and excellent location. It is extremely convenient for food and general shopping, easy access to restaurants and well located for tourist/holiday activities.
Well located Hote. I know that a one-person room usually is small, but this one was about the smallest I have ever seen. Breakfast was fantastisch!!!! Well done !!! Room was too small for comfort
the service the room and the breakfast no
Great area and good people did not have double beds
Wifi internet connerction was deplorable
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 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.
good all round experiance
Checking out by 10:30am was inconvenient. All other hotels allow you to check out by 12am.
Kindness of people and good ratio quality/price The wrong communication between web channels and the hotel.
All staff were very friendly and accommodating safe did not work
very comfortable and relaxing no
the garden no
good tailored service. nice peaceful location. nice small pool with sauna.
a very relaxed pleasant atmosphere good food
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
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.
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.
This is an excellent hotel - a bit hard to find, but a great staff, large rooms, great value for the money!
Friendliness, attention to detail and overall hospitality.
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.
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.
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!
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..)
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 quitness and calmness, beatifull surroundings.
It was all very good.
Warm greeting on arrival ease of use of facilities and knowing we can have our teenage daughter in the same room as ourselves
We always have an enjoyable trip witht he Amicitia, the staff accomodated us well with my husbands bad back, the rooms are very comfortable as is the whole hotel, highly recommend it as a family hotel too. I am thinking about having my 50 birthday party there next year!
Very large free parking, free wireless internet, very large closets in the bedroom The whole sum was charged on the credit card when checking in (instead of just running the card for authorization, as usual). It was impossible to get an 'extended' (!) check out at 12:30 (after 4 nights). Variety at breakfast was poor: considering that this is 4- star hotel as many Hiltons are, E.G. Bremen, Mainz City, Innsbruck, Bonn, Florence.....and thinking of the difference of the breakfast buffet, one realizes how little stars mean without the hotel's name. If one has to stay in Sneek, then I recommend it
Quiet, comfortable with attentive staff. Regularly use this hotel when we are in Sneek
location absence of free internet access; absence of in-room air conditioning made it necessary to sleep with windows open, which led to mosquitos in room
Good location, adjacent to highway, yet quiet. Interesting room decor and spacious beds, unusual restaurant.
In general, reasonably ok for a 3 stars hotel but not for a 4 stars. Problem with the hot water, breakfast not that goog as expected
it was ok
Peaople had good landuage skills
The room was comfortable, the bathroom was excellent. The breakfast buffet was good. The surroundings aren't very nice.
nice hotel on the edge of shopping area beside canal. great staff good service nice bar area . very good dinning room food to very high standard. all in all a great place to stay.
Food was very good,staff extremely welcoming and friendly. No bad points,only one on my behalf that we didn't stay longer.
helpful staff good food and nice location
It was not noisy at night. I liked the surroundings, and the small town. Great breakfast.
The staff were really helpful, especially with information about attractions around the area and travel arrangements.
Location excellent staff friendly and helpful hotel clean tidy resturant food good breakfast included in price good and plentiful second time stay for bike racing but would go back just for a lazy break with the wife
Staff were very helpful and brekfast plentiful. Bar area was very nice. Our room was in need of some re decoration and updating however it was very clean
All round I was very impressed with the hotel and the staff None
Location, clenliness of room & restaraunt. the staff were polite. I will be coming back. I would like to have seen tea / coffie making facilities in the room
The Pub down the Road and the friendly Staff at the hotel Beds Not fantastic
very clean and staff friendly and very helpful
Quiet and nice people. N.A.
Very comfortable and clean. Staff very helpful. Restaurant, food and waitress excellent.
Large room, comfortable bed, decent breakfast, great view. Lots of stairs, terrible noise from the restaurant terrace until 1-2 am, reception difficult to reach when restaurant is full.
Nice location, excellent food, very nice and kind staff.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful. Our stay there was quiet and relaxing. We could have rented their bikes too, but did not have time to. Just a reminder that stairs in Holland are more on the steep side.
The staff were very helpful & friendly. The stairs to our room were very steep - just something for info, not something that caused us to dislike the hotel.
The setting was lovely. All the staff were friendly. The room was clean and it had everything we needed. The food was very good but we felt it was expensive.There was a very odd smell in our bedroom.
The room was comfortable and newly decorated and the staff were hospitable. The food in the restaurant was very good.
Faire price - good hospitallity - along the water breakfast nice - friendly staff - bathroom clean small room ( if you want to stay more than one nigth ) - some odour in the cabinet in which you put your spare clothes in
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...
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.
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.
I liked the service from the hotel, the room was very clean and comfortable, bathroom well equiped... No
Request for one large bed was not noticed - hotels has hardly one....
Friendly, helpful staff Restaurant closes at 21:00
The dining room position and view and the little gift on the bed The bathroom could be refurbished
The homy athmosfare.
I was only at the hotel at night,and it was very quiet
Large room well situated to town
Pleasant surroundings. Good location. Good sized rooms.
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
Nice staff, to soft beds ,
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
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
Level of service was very good through attentive and very helpful people. Bedroom decore was modest.
it isn't a hotel but a kind of a hospital...
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!
Very friendly & helpful staff.Very good eveinng dinners Room facilities a bit basic.
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
Breakfast was very late
The setting, ambiance and staff were very nice. There were good trails to walk our dog. The rooms were comfortable.
cannot comment as visit was for a funeral No tea or coffee facilities in bedroom
great area to hike, cycle, etc.
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.
