THe hotel was situated in a small village (satnav recommended) with little more than a small shop/post office, a garage and a kitchen furniture manufacturer/showroom, but larger villages within a few minutes travel. Although we didn't partake it seemed to be the centre for anyone wishing to explore the area by bicycle, as everywhere is flat, these could be hired at the hotel, During the fine weather, the hotel was a stopping off point for cyclist and although in a small village, was very busy. English is widely spoken and other guests and locals are happy to talk. The food was very good, all home cooked by the owners wife. Parking no problem. The hotel had 17 rooms split between two buildings across the street, breakfast in one half ,dinner in the other. The current exchange rate Pound/Euro does make even a short trip to the continent quite expensive especially in the bigger cities and even the hotel. Restaurant food and drink very expensive
Location Poor breakfast ,steep stairs,tired atmosphere
The location at edge of city was great, and Sluis itself a charming, engaging community. Breakfast was excellent. Tho room was spacious it had pedestrian design and the twin beds were a downer. Charging for use of Wi-fi was off-putting. Price was much too high for the quality of the lodging.
Large comfortable room and good position of the Hotel. The male receptionist was very helpful. Excellent parking facilities. On Saturday night there was a serious amount of noise from a dance band (So much we could not use the room) We raised the issue both verbally and in writing but have not had a reply after two weeks (the time they set themselves)
The breakfast was lovely. Check in was quick and easy. Lift available. Rooms were clean. Bathroom beautiful. Hotel has a nice bar and spa. The rooms were very small. We could not get the internet here, even though we asked the staff. They told us not at this time. Short changed twice in the bar.
A very nice building from the outside Very dusty, should have been cleaner.
Impressive exterior facade, looks like a castle rooms look a bit outdated, too much carpet everywhere...
We went to have dinner in restaurant Oud Sluis The breakfast was too simple
everything was good not really, but could have had tea/coffee making facilities
everything was comfortable and the staff very good
Sluis is a lovely town, with plenty shops, restaurants and wonderful scenery. The Dikke Van Dale is the best hotel in the area. No criticisms at all
The breakfast was wonderful - and the reception and dining area and location very aesthetic. The smell near the toilets in the pool area
The location, surroundings and the staff of the hotel were very nice. The hotel was also very child friendly. As mentioned, it was too expensive
noice at 02.00 h by a large number of disabled young people returning from a fiesta and using elevator outside during half a hour
Situation and Facilities Balcony direction achieved no sunshine and of little benefit due to outlook, over adjacent hotel and noisy playground, restricting privacy.
Very friendly staff.
the interior and location of the terrace room, the very nice spa, the massage, the chairs and beds of the spa terrace, the breakfast buffet and room
We loved our stay and loved our romantic suite!
fabulous view from the Bondi Beach Room food in restaurant was OK but can be better
nice environment, excellent breakfast
That we could have dinner at pure c, taking the apero on the terras. Breakfast in the morning in the same nice area was nice too. Pity we had to leave so early.
Nice hotel, close to the beach I did not like the difference in price between what was written in the email from you (125€) to what I had to pay (190€)
Unfortunately the restaurant was so successful that they did not have place for 'regular' hotel guests for dinner - if no reservation was made. Ordering a cup of tea to take back to the room took 20 minutes. And even though it's called 'strand' (=beach) hotel, the access to the beach was closed after breakfast - according to the personnel to keep out the crowds that are attracted to the trendy restaurant/bar design. Even though the design of the restaurant is splendid, the rest of the hotel would get 3-stars if you ask me.
The location on the dunes with the view of the beach and Sea is very nice. the staff was helpful
Comfortable. Impeccable service. Good food.
Wonderful location, not too crowded, excellent restaurant service and food.
the new restaurant launched by Sergio Herman, the 3 stars chef of the Netherlands Rooms look the age of the hotel (30-40 years ?), although they are clean. A bit oldish, but a perfect location for those who seek silence, breathtaking views over the sea and beautiful beaches
Its location and the friendly, efficient service by all members of staff but particularly those on reception We cannot think of a single thing we disliked
The friendliness of the hotel staff.
Beautiful accommodation in a wonderful setting. Staff very friendly and helpful. Delicious breakfast. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse if you are visiting this area. It was our first stop on a tour of the Netherlands (an easy 2 hour drive from the ferry at Calais).
Relaxing and calming location. Staff very helpful and attentive. Special and variated breakfast.Definitely the place to go to relax and reload the batteries.
manager very friendly, rooms very nice, wf-fi very good!
Breakfast was verry good. Everything fresh and home made.
Family-run boutique hotel; size of room; very high quality of food and service; feeling like a guest and not a consumer baby cot was not great; we flagged it to the manager who will undoubtedly provide a better one for the next guests
Staff were friendly and attentive
Very friendly service, very clean rooms, great breakfast. Restaurant with an exceptional atmosphere and excellent food. Cosy place you immediately feel at home in. The only thing: hair dryer (at least in the smaller rooms on the second floor) are really no good for styling.
the personal and friendly manner the crew did their job
Very nice people, good kitchen, clean and spacius room, comfortable beds. Very good location in the centre of Oostbug. Perfect breakfast. Stairs to the rooms is rather steep. A little noisy (thin walls).
This is an excellent hotel in the middle of a small quiet town, a few miles from the sea and the beach. The personnel is fantastic and the room was very spatious and quiet. Breakfast is a real treat in this hotel! The hotel facilities are more than adequate though not particularly luxurious. The restaurant is very good though prices are rather high. Overall we had an excellent stay here.
friendly personnel; good breakfast; excellent bed the espresso was poor
Service was good; nice terrasse No soap/shower gel in bathroom; bin not emptied after previous guest
The attentiveness of the staff and the lovely continental breakfasts. Also the night entry arrangements were very good and the location is so peaceful and quiet. Parking was close and easy and the area we found out is virtually crime-free. The curtain rails need lubricating as the warm velvet curtains were not easy to pull back.
The location of the hotel was great, staff was friendly and breakfast was nice. The interior decoration wasn't really cosy and beds were not very good.
Hotel has a new owner and they plan to improve a lot. Nice people with good ideas and very motivated/commited. Previous owner caused a lot of damage mainly by bad service. I very much would like to give the new owners (family) a change to make something out of this place. Need some time but they are on the right way and I wish them all the luck. I will come back for sure to check. Hotel is nicely located at a square and has warm atmosphere. The previous owner was not interested and the hotel was not used for a long time. The rooms and beds need to be refreshed and renewed and some plans to do so are on the way. Cleanliness of the rooms could be a bit better.
The rooms were lovely but unfortunately poorly insulated : we were kept awake by the noise from upstairs.
the relaxed atmosphere
nice decoration - well furnished & nice location - good breakfast - nice owner/personal -food service quite slow but nothing dramatic for a 2 stars
Quaint but comfortable, good breakfast, excellent value for money None
Very compact apartment-style room with every possible kitchen appliance available. Very clean and comfortable. Quiet and private. Excellent breakfast. We would have preferred a double bed - rather than the two adjoining singles. A bath too would have been nice.
Very friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere
Welcome, friendly staff, excellent facilities, and breakfast Everything fine
Unusual to stay in a museum - and quite happy for guests to look around.
calm, tasty bread for breakfast, not far from Belgium (Brugge, Gent), funny (chamber-pot in the room) semi-transparent doors of the rooms on the first floor
A generally pleasant atmosphere with comfortable sitting room and lovely garden for sitting out. Bedrooms were very simple but comfortable, but had lighting a bit dim for reading.
Accoustic signature of rooms not particularly good. Easy to disturb be disturbed by neighbour Needs tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms
The hotel is basic and clean, I liked the food in the restaurant and personal touch of the owner. the hotel is as advertised a basic, clean and value for money hotel. No frills.
Cosy hotel, pleasant atmosphere and clean comfortable rooms Nothing
Location - view to the sea - restaurant was closed from 9pm - charge for extra bed in junior suite was ridiculously overpriced - 70eur (and this was not indicated while booking)
Spacious room - marvellous view - very quiet - clean - friendly welcome No not really .... exactly what we hoped for ....
The seaside view. It was a quiet place to relax The breakfast was not so good.
Nothing!!!! On the website it states that the hotel had a bar which it does not!, Also everything is closed at 10pm. I was with the Director of our company and he was apalled with the hotel and its facilities. We had to have a meeting in his room. I will not be booking this hotel again and with a room rate of 130euro a night this is very poor.
Very large and comfortable rooms, great seaview, friendly staff, good location (close to Brugge, Vlissingen and the Cadzand beaches).
the room was well furnished and well maintained.the location was excellent.the staff were friendly and helpfull.
It is very dated, and not in a nice way. It could be a wonderful retro hotel, but instead we found it depressing. It was also already too late for dinner at 20.30
My friend and I loved the friendliness of the staff, even the breakfast was served with love! The room was extremely well designed and classy. The location is ideal, right on the beach and close to a harbour. I would have liked some club or something indoors where we could pass our time, if it rained. There is a small town centre closeby but it would be nice to have some fun and games inside the hotel, if possible.
The architecture is fantastic, I,m very happy is is maintained as it is. Nothing, everything was perfectly allright. Very kind owner. Mevr. Demilliano
Sea views from our hotel window - including large ships passing to/from Antwerp etc. in the wide estuary. The hotel also overlooks a harbour where a passenger ferry crosses to/from Vlissingen. Although it must be said that a room with a sea-view at this hotel does cost at least 30 euros more than their "standard room". The hotel has a quiet location next to the beach and harbour.
