First stayed at the Van Bebber in 1994 on business, several times since and most recently at the end of January. Unfortunately this great place is now no more than a German travelodge - room, with breakfast. To be honest I only ever ate in the hotel on two occasions, both times less than enjoyable. The beer keller in the cellar is now closed ( permananetly ? ) and is privately owned and the bar ?.....the end of the reception desk.
Upon check in, I went to pick up my key..."PLEASE WAIT !!" was the receptionists request. "If you are out after 10pm, please take your key for the front door.....". Not entirely welcoming which is a great shame as the Van Bebber is a great whacky hotel in a lovely North German town.More
