We stayed at the Beach Hotel (which is connected to the Oranje Hotel) in Noordwijk; the hotel is wonderfully situated on the seaside boulevard, and has a choice of seaside rooms, looking out to the sea, or landside rooms. We had a landside room, and were glad of that: as the rooms may be airconditioned, but there is no way to set it to your own liking (we searched for the airconditioning switches but could not find them). The rooms on the seaside on a sunny day will be bathing, or should i say baking, in the sun all day, and guess they will be very hot.
Situated at the boulevard, the hotel is nicely situated near lots of nice (sometimes even excellent) restaurants, although there are restaurants and bars in the hotel as well.
Our room had a little balcony, and the warm weather permitted us to sit outside and enjoy the views till very late.
The rooms themselves are average and have slightly oldfashioned design. We had a twin bed, which moved very easily, and the bathroom smallish.
Service could / should be much better in a 4-star hotel like this. I can understand that the hotel tries to scare off daytrippers parking in their parking lot, but €20/€35 for a day parking is quite a lot of money, and we cannot see why hotel guests could not be given free access to the carpark.
Also, staff at the reception desk varies in kindness. One staff member told us we could not stay for a late checkout, whereas the next morning there was no problem (but then we had already checked out and it was too late). Mixed messages therefore.
And although we cancelled our breakfast at the reception desk, it still appeared on the final bill.
This is also the first hotel ever where we had to pay for a bucket of ice delivered to our room, we were stunned. Luckily, the fantastic weather during our stay kept us in a good mood.
We also visited the pool and sauna area (UK & USA visitors: this is a fully naked sauna so be aware!), which looked hygienic and had several sauna's, a steam room and a jacuzzi. Worth the try, and free of charge for hotel guests (amazingly).
We will probably come back to Noordwijk, but whether it is to this hotel, i'm not sure....
