This has to be one of most favourite places to stay, this was not our first stay, it was wonderful to be back. The renovations were finished, and wonderful, well worth the wait, from the changes to the court yard to the entrance, although I do prefer the charm of the tradional aspects of the hotel. The newly renovated rooms are a little too modern, beautiful, but not in keeping with the "oldest hotel" mantra. The Oude Werf has the best staff, they are very warm and friendly, however they seemed a little shortstaffed during this stay, we were turned away when we wanted some refreshments, even though there were many available tables. The restuaurant is very quaint, although the changes to the breakfast setup area is a little disjointed, and I do miss the stewed fruit. I can't wait for my next visit even though this was not my most favourite stay.
