We stay at the Schermer every year and will continue to do so. The rooms are lovely, the location excellent and the staff friendly. However, Herr Schermer really needs to decide whether he wants his hotel to be a beautiful, sophisticated spa hotel or a children's playground. Unfortunately we hit the week of Dutch half term and the usually quiet village was swamped and the hotel was drowning in badly behaved children and parents. The children screamed all day and all night in every part of the hotel. They took their toys and sit on cars into the dining room, they trod water from the pool into the lift right up until midnight. They ran screaming around the bar constantly. Even when indulging in a spa treatment in a closed room you could hear them. If you wanted to use the pool without being dive bombed, forget it. The hotel made no effort to keep the children at bay, and they never do. You just need to be prepared for it.
The food remains mediocre, so it was no hardship to eat out almost every night, but we shouldn't have to. Of course children should be welcome, but not allowed to dominate everything 24/7. If it is the Mark Warner style holiday the Schermer seeks to provide, it really should stop aiming itself at the couples and relaxation seekers side of the market.
