This is a hotel school. Everything about the hotel is as you would wish it to be - and also as you would hope it could be in the "real" world. Better signage from reception to the hotel section.
The staff was friendly, the room was clean, the breakfast was great. I could not have a hot shower when before going to bed, because they had a problem in the heating system. The problem is that no one had warn me about this problem, I discovered when I was ready to take a shower. When I checked out, I asked about a discount in the price, or no charging in the breakfast, but they refused. I thought very unkind of them, because I did not have a good sleep night without having a shower. In my opinion they should be more kind and apologyze with a real action, and not just with words.
The hotel run by students is a very good quality price relation, but the students still have to improve some small things, you easily pardon them since they are extremely friendly and motivated. when I received a phone call, they asked the person what was the subject of the call, a well known practice in a company when a secretary answers the phone, but not done in a hotel.
The friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness and the fact that the staff (first and third-year students) were open to comments and constructive criticism. It is a training academy, and this must be taken in mind when booking! As it is a training academy, the restaurant was not open at the weekend - however the breakfast was fine and I would recommend Humphreys restaurant in the centre of Leeuwarden (€19.95 for three excellent courses!).
hotel tres calme, service excellent
Good and hospitality service.
The staff is friendly and quick in problem solving situations. The hotel is very well designed and confortable I think the cleaning of the room, and the bathroom particularly, was non appropriate for a four star hotel.
The kind staff, the organisation - we got there passed midnight and everything was prepared-, the room and its bathroom.
The hotel is a hotel university (the staff are students from international hostellery management), the quality iss that of a high quality hotel for a budget price (you pay about three times less than could be expected by the standerd of the hotel).
Students learn, train and run the hotel. Achieved 4 star rating. Friendly Reception staff. Hefty walk to room. No vending machines. No facilities for guests. No breakfast included in price.
Very friendly Hotel staff that will cater to clients needs. Even though it is a beach&seaside hotel foremost it is also well suited for business travelers
Close to the marina. On the meer. Beautiful sunset. Easy to check-in and check-out. noisy people on the beach late at night.
The suite we had was comfortable and perfect for a family, although the restaurant was expensive both for dinner and breakfast and unsuitable for young children. The location was convenient and attractive. We had to search for someone to check us in and check us out and there were no staff available to give information..
the location the room
Confort I think internet access very expensive
Service Hotel needs to be redecorated-looks seedy.
It was well-located. Athough we booked the living-room, we've got a different room (cheaper), but they also changed the price accordingly.
good location This was advertised as a palace ..our room was totally charmless!...We felt the hotel was not being very well attented to..also the parking was difficult..a walk and then an underground garage........
I booked a suite for EUR 100 - it's very good value for money! Very spacious suite in a real palace. Good breakfast with a relatelively small choice of quality food, good bread and nice selection of cheeses. The reception staff was slightly unfriendly and did not smile at all. However they were exceptionally efficient, helpful and fulfilled all requests withing adequate time.
The location and ambiente
The staff was wonderful.
Excellent accommodations. Luxurious. Excellent bargain for price.
A modern friendly hotel situated conveniently in the heart of the old town.Friendly, helpful staff made the stay all the more enjoyable. Breakfast could have been better quality ie bacon dried out, muesli cereal was mostly dust and not worth eating. A little more effort on quality control would have made it good rather than OK.
Nice, clean and comfortable hotel. The staff is very helpfull and nice persons. The bathroom very nice and modern. The beds good.
Comfortable hotel room and a kind and good staff
Nice atmosphere, very central yet calm location, excellent service. I appreciated a lot as well the (free) WiFi - which is in fact an indispensable service for most travellers.
A new and well-designed hotel - quiet and relaxing ambience - interesting area - breakfast above average, though coffee was rather bland. Overall however, well worth a second visit. Parking rather unfortunate for the hotel, but the staff could hardly be more helpful about the two alternative solutions.
New hotel in excellent condition, very helpful staff and good location - walking distance to good restaurants and museums. The beds were just too soft - no support at all - and we both had very sore backs after two nights there. It would be fine for us for short stays but we could never stay for long unless they have some beds that are a bit firmer. I am sure it would be fine for young people with good backs but we are both old with back problems.
Well presented food. Large comfortable double beds. a modern,clean hotel. but. The car parking is a great distance from the hotel, walking it in the rain cannot be fun and should be avoided. Many of the bedrooms rooms are not fitted with air conditioning. I would recommend with reservation.
Loved our room with a little balcony. Spacious enough for luggage, bathroom had a nice large bath tub and the bed was very comfortable.
Nice house, nice owner and good quality of furnishings and fittings. The location is a very well serviced and friendly town in Friesland - very rural. The house is located 3 or 4kms from the town. No clothes storage at all except for one rail of 6 hooks. No facility for a drink other than at breakfast - water or tea/coffee making would be a welcome addition. With the distance from town, this did become a problem.
good value, good location, and it allowed dogs.
The facilities and Staff were completly available to everything we needed They could improve bycicle parking at night
Friendly welcome, quiet wth peaceful views over countryside, excellent breakfast.
Friendly, good atmosphere I would like to see the toilet/shower block as non-smoking
The friendly and helpful staff.
Friendly staff and expedient check-in and -out. Good beds and covers. Doors too thin (noise).
excellent service and food it was very difficult to contact the hotel by e mail to organise things before the trip, i would wait a week or more before a reply
Convenient. Superb food.
location service at breakfast on Sunday. Completely understaffed, buffet was empty 30 minutes before end of breakfast; despite reminders nothing was added.
Clean rooms - warm water. Very friendly employees. Rooms are rather small for these prices.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and the restaurant had great food and service. I will definitely recommend this hotel.
As we were staying for a skating competition the venue was perfect as it was so close to the ice rink . the hotel staff were fantasic and accomodated our every need.
Clean and neat, staff pleasant.
Beautiful location in very peaceful Oude Bildzijl is great for relaxation and countryside viewing. The host was very accommodating even tough we arrived three hours after the official check-in time. At the beginning of your stay you can hear the nearby clock, even during the night.
The room was very hot with no airconditioning. There was also a lot of noise during the night. It is very expensive for such a basic room. There was also no staff available, not even to receive the payment. I really cannot recommend "De Witte Klok" to any traveller.
a great hotel, very atmospheric and beautifully appointed. Good little cafe two doors down with very friendly locals. We hope to return one day.
Lovely location, friendly locals, clean rooms. The pub, "The Grey Horse" over the road was great too. Our experience was very positive, but I offer two suggestions: 1) It was very hot during our visit but we could not ventilate the room due to the mosquitos at night - a fan would have been useful in helping us get some sleep. 2) It would have been useful to have had some local information in English provided - practical information such as location of banks, shops, swimming pools, attractions etc.
the room and the staff no
Please see above answer - I entered it incorrectly.
Veryfriendly welcome, large apartment, restuarant nearby
Interesting lobby and restaurant A strange smell in my room
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.
WIFI temporarilly failed
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!
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.
Standard Campanile - cheap but reasonable rooms - good meal in the hotel after a long bike ride was very welcome - the brocolli soup was especially good
Very convenient for the City Centre, budget priced hotel. Although near to the main road noise was not too intrusive. Restaurant and Bar opening hours.
The staff were helpful and spoke good english. The room was clean and comfortable and it was easy to park. The lighting in the room could have been brighter
Perfect service when we asked for change of room, however THE new room also smelled and was fulltime of mosquitos
very friendly staff,excellent breakfast.
Staff was very friendly. When we asked to be moved to a room above the ground floor, they took care of it right away. The food at the restaurant was excellent. Very easy to get to and conveniently right off a main road. Set back enough that there is no traffic noise.
no lift stairecase to havy on elderly people
Well the most convincing thing they served me in my room despite of the fact they dont offer room service and that was overwhelming. The staff is absolutely refine and descent Water was yellow, reflection of this color is everywhere in the bathroom, room was very small
Good locations - had a restaurant attached
nice area no air conditioning, it was warm but in summer it probably would be unbearable..
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.
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.
Friendliness, attention to detail and overall hospitality.
a very relaxed pleasant atmosphere good food
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.
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.
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.
good tailored service. nice peaceful location. nice small pool with sauna.
This is an excellent hotel - a bit hard to find, but a great staff, large rooms, great value for the money!
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
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 good and convinient kitchen for the guests. "Small double rooms" are not suitable for two persons.
The owners were very keen to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms and communal spaces were well decorated, equiped and spotlessly clean. Additionally the cost was very reasonable and the location beautiful.
very friendly owners bedroom was freezing cold and the heathing makes lots of noise during the night. also difficult to get hot tab water.
The little town is like in fairy tale and the pension also is on the canal closer seeside.Wonderful!!! ! recomand everybody. Thanks to host.
A very welcoming host, location in a wonderfully peaceful village and a delicious breakfast. Definitely a great choice for a peaceful retreat or countryside exploration.
very comfortable and great staff
Having stayed there before I was not surprised at the wonderfully warm welcome and atmosphere I found but it was great to experience again. Highly recommended and thanks again to Ellie & Martin
the price and the service no
Restaurant menu was very good The bathroom and toilet were just large enough.
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.
Very attentive staff. Interesting history to the building. Convenient location for touring the area.
excellent breakfast shower area could be improved, no hairdryer available
We loved our stay at the Pension Perruque. We were made very welcome by Janny & Nico, and looked after by Sita. Nothing to complain about everything was wonderful
The very warm welcome from tha host. The character and design of the pension + the cleaniness &comfort.
the view on the harbour, the friendly staff, the good beds that the breakfast was not included, you had to order and pay extra
The Pool and sauna facilities No hairdryer in bathroom
Location, friendliness and flexibility of staff, comfy and spacious room, good breakfast, indoor pool open till 11pm. Hotel is located adjacent to a small yacht harbour which partially sets the (nautical) tone. Would also recommend for brainstorm sessions and the like. Golf nearby.
Evening meal in the restaurant was excellent - compliments to the chef Have a severe draft in the room and requested a o change rooms. They obliged but unfortunately I was expected to move the cot provided by the hotel also. I would have thought they could have done this, it was difficult with a 7 month old in tow.
Nice view over the water.
The restaurant was excellent and the service was very efficient and friendly.
Service was poor for a relatively expensive meal - 2.5 hours to serve dinner is far too long. We felt often ignored, and courses were not timely.
Excellent hotel / very friendly and helpful staff
Good Service erry Nice staff A Lot of very old people where staying there looked liked a old people home, no real bar in the evening
the view is so good.. and they provide 24 hrs rectecption... so great... nothing...
We was turist an look at the town and the islands.
Very accommodating and competent staff. Wonderful location for exploring a small Frisian port and the adjacent countryside. Convenient kitchen facilities for breakfast and lunch--a bit small for making a big dinner.
Great location. The Stadslogement is a comfortable place to stay and Harlingen really is an adorable town
stayed here on cycling holiday - very welcoming staff and willing to help store bicycles in safe place. Clean and quiet place but in a good location to explore the town. Self catering great to make it feel more homely for teh same price as a b&b
Very friendly and helpful staff (owners) Unique achitecture. On Street parking can be difficult.
the village, the location (very close to centre), very spacious rooms due to the staircase being very close to the bedroom, it was noisy when people arrived home late at night
Thar we could have our dog with us. No information in English.
Most interesting as the restaurant attatched to the apartments was originally my grandparents home for over 55 years
The location of the hotel was great
Fantastic building and confortable adaption Extra cost paying by credit card.
See the comments above pillows are thicker than I prefer.
Nice Hotel. DeLuxe Room was very comfortable and clean Breakfast was poor and overall look is quite old and used
Everything very very laid back no fuss more personel service at breakfast
Friendly staff. Good restaurant. Reception on 1st floor. Leave your suitcases downstairs until you know what floor you are on!
Nice city and surroundings
Lovely very well renovated old farm. Perfect welcome, very friendly, very nice atmosphere, excellent food(do not forget to book for restaurant too). Apart from the usual Dutch stairs, you can not open windows but it is nicely compensated by air circulation system and it is better to avoid mosquitoes...
Excellent breakfast, very helpful staff, nice central Friesland location, good restaurant, highly recommended! No screen in the shower, so the water went everywhere.
Staff wer very kind and good food.
Nice location in the friesland countryside. Shower had no door or curtain and water goes everywhere. Breakfast not until 830! Overpriced dinners and rooms for that area.
