“Modern but not quite comfortable”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The hotel is located in the core of the island's only village: a beautiful set of old buildings worth a detour. The room was clean but not quite big enough for three adults, as we asked for. The bedside tables are of modern design but poorly functional: too tall to use them even while sit and made of steel bars making it impossible to put any objet without preventing it to fall. The bathroom is modern too but without any surface to lay something on. The location is quiet and pleasant but there's little staff: the check-in desk is often empty and you have to ring a bell every time you need attention. There are some interesting contemporary pictures on the walls and breakfast is of valuable quality and choice.

Badhuis Bruin is very well located, and has beautiful decorated rooms.
They have a good eye for detail.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.

The restaurant is a bit pricey, but great food and wines

I can recommend a visit the Vlie land and a stay at this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for the biggest room available.

Our third visit to Vlieland - As time goes on we are more and more impressed with the hotel . Yes the Internet is poor , but tha is really a microdetail.
The bar staff were particularly good

Cool design, very centrally located. A nice terrace on the main street. The service is friendly, and the staff very accommodating. The hotel owner himself was very flexible and helpful. The restaurant is good, but it tries a bit too hard, and is pricey when compared to hotel rates. But overall, a very good experience.

Room Tip: Our friends had a noisy room, and asked to change it. Avoid rooms facing the main street.

Couple of nights in this nice boutique hotel, right in the center of Vlieland. Very well located. Room was nice, reasonably large, cool decoration. I think we got upgraded. Shower a little too small. NO INTERNET ACCESS FROM ROOM.
The downside was the very poor organization: we booked an all-inclusive package with dinner and breakfast, and also bicycle rent. There is no staff at reception, was handled by waiters of the restaurant. They claimed that our rate did not include dinner and that there was anyway no table available before late.... Very disappointed we walked to a nearby restaurant and paid our dinner. Next morning, asked again bout dinner, they reconfirmed that it was not included. Asked for the bicycles, took them long minutes to finally tell us to go to the nearest bike-rental shop.
When checking out the next morning, we finally heard from the attendant that our bicycles had been waiting for us in front of the hotel, and that our rate indeed included two dinners for two... But too late. They gave us a 100€ rebate on the hotel rate which actually covers the equivalent of one dinner for two on the island (but definitely not two dinners).

Hotel Bruin in Vlieland is centrally located in the main street of the Vlieland village. It appearance is modern and stylish. The rooms however are small, just allowing to circumvent the double bed, and there was no view other than the paned roof of the next house. The double bed seemed of relatively poor quality with springs impressing on body surface and shy on bed size for two relatively tall adults. In contrast the bathroom seemed stylish and renovated recently (very nice). The rooms are not very sound insulated, and we had the pleasure to enjoy the noise that the hotel guests (predominantly dutch) cared to share ad libitum. Dinner at the restaturant was excellent, with a relatively adventurous menu presentment. The requested wine (Barbera) however was not served at the right temperature range. Breakfast could not be served before 10:30 hrs on the outside terras in front of the hotel (???). The hotel staff seems highly efficient and relatively knowledgable. Though staff was very friendly, I did not appreciate to be greeted informally as if we were friends, I am the client!

It looks very nice but the food was far beneath every standard and when you have complains the service is even worst.
