“Wonderful Stay at the Strandhotel”
Reviewed 18 July 2008

Noordwijk is a popular seaside resort in the Dutch province of Zuid-Holland, near Den Haag, Rotterdam, and Leiden (the latter is *definitely* worth a visit, one of the most beautiful cities in the Netherlands).

My wife and I went there on an extended weekend trip a couple of days ago. We had booked the Strandhotel through booking.com, at EUR 92,- / night, breakfast included. This is obviously not a real bargain but rooms are going cheaper off-season.

The hotel is on Parallelboulevard, which runs parallel (get it?) to the beach. Thus, the site itself is not a beachfront property but the sea is only 2 mins (on foot) away. Standard twin rooms are spacious enough, featuring two beds, a desk and chair, two armchairs, cable TV, and a small refrigerator (and a real one at that, not one of those horrible "minibar" contraptions). Ground floor rooms feature a private patio each, other rooms come with balconies. Apartments w/ kitchenettes are also available.

We were most impressed by the general cleanliness of the rooms and the staff's friendliness. Employees were happy to give advice on shopping, dining, bus timetables, etc., and always with a smile.

Public parking is available at EUR 1,- per day, inquire at the reception desk. If you are staying in Noordwijk or just planning short day trips to Leiden, etc., my advice is to leave your car parked for the duration of your stay, since shopping, dining, etc. are all readily available within walking distance. For trips to neighboring towns I can recommend the connexxion public transport network, a bus will e.g. take you to Leiden in about thirty minutes, roundtrips are between EUR 2.20 and 4.40.

Breakfast at the Strandhotel is tasty, with lots of choice (cereals, yoghurt, cocoa, tea, coffee, milk, fruit, eggs, cold cuts, cheese, rolls, bread, etc.). Guests may prepare lunch boxes for themselves, the surcharge is EUR 1,- per closed sandwich.

I have not found any other hotel in Noordwijk that offers the same value for your money. If you are looking for a few relaxing days on the Dutch seaside, the Strandhotel is definitely the place you should consider staying at.

  • Liked — Clean, friendly, quiet, very good value for money
  • Disliked — The view (the god-awful-looking, but still four- or five-star Hotel Oranje)
  • Stayed July 2008, travelled as a couple

Reviewed 16 September 2007

We booked this hotel after only minimal research- our criteria being 'not too far away from the centre of town', 'not too expensive' and 'includes breakfast'
We struck very lucky with this small/medium family run establishment.
The location is about 2 minutes from the beach, and maybe 5 minutes walk from the restaurants on the 'prom' - and there's an excellent selection (chinese, mexican, italian, etc.).
The room had a pleasant balcony. There was more than adequate space (think Travelodge) with a clean shower / loo and secure wardrobe with a safe inside. There was a small TV, and bedside radio. If you want tea / coffee making faciliteis you have to pay extra, which I felt was a bit of a cheek.
The 'restaurant' for breakfast was in the basement - a typical European 'all you can eat' type buffet. There's not too much room, and I think it might be possible to arrive when there's no tables available. The restaurant only does snacks in the evening, but has a well stocked bar.
The owners were very, very freindly and extremely accomodating. The hotel seems to be frequented by elderly germans who seem to have been regulars for some time! Children are accomodated, but there doesn't seem to be any specific facilities.
The hotel is clean and tidy, but feels a bit 70's-ish, which might detract for some people.
I would most certainly stay here again - and I would most certainly revisit the lovely beach, and freindly people of Noordwijk.

  • Liked — Very friendly owners, location close to the beach.
  • Disliked — Being charged for tea tray; dated decor
  • Stayed August 2007, travelled with family
