First the big negative.
During our stay in mid May there was a large fair sited immediately outside the hotel in 'T Zand square. Our companions' room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the square and the noise was horrendous. Reception advised that the music would be turned off at 10 pm. This was not the case and continued until 1.30 am when it was replaced by the sound of drunken revellers, fighting and police sirens. Closing the windows helped only a little but brought with it the disadvantage of an overheated and stuffy room – despite the air-conditioner. Fortunately they secured a move to a room at the rear where it was quieter but others were not so lucky. The fair started closing and packing up on the third night. For a relaxing break in a beautiful medieval city this was a disaster.
What really rankles is that according to a resident this fair is a regular one month long yearly event, always during the same weeks, always in 'T Zand and yet no warning was given by the tour company or the hotel. All that's required is a simple “Please note that from mid-April to mid-May there will be a fair in 'T Zand and there will be some noise at night”
Stayed at this hotel 18 – 21 May as part of a coach B&B package so reasonably priced. Excellent location, rooms in the original building adequate, clean but in need of refreshing with a little redecoration. Bathroom recently refurbished, small but smart. Bed linen towels etc all very clean. No tea/coffee making facilities. There is a more modern extension but no information on the quality of rooms there.
Continental breakfast OK although the fruit salad tasted somewhat synthetic and the scrambled egg and bacon were always tepid when available. No 'rationing' so free to graze and top-up coffee and fruit juice at will.
Pleasant bar with reasonable prices. The staff were friendly and helpful, although the receptionist that said the fairground music would cease at 10 misled us I think. In summary our accommodation did not really rate four stars but if you avoid the weeks of the fair and lower your expectations to three stars then it's adequate.
