“TO COMMON TO BE A GRAND HOTEL”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

nicely situated in the dunes of de Koog, Texel, Holland
overloaded interiot, included too much furniture in the rooms
no airco, no minibar, no slippers, no bathrobe
nice breakfast, small portions at dinner, fine dining much too expensive
ridiculously high drink prices
small swimming pool
in general : to expensive, impersonal cold, too many pretensions for no reason

Room Tip: all rooms are too expensive, try a room to the forest side

There is a special atmosphere in the Texel Island and the Grand Hotel Opduin is a fine special hotel in it. The food in the hotel is of very high quality, rooms are very big and well equipped. The entire design of the hotel is very special and staff were very friendly and helpful. This is certainly a hotel which is worth traveling for, even to a remote location such as Texel.

Room Tip: Higher floor - better view.

We stayed in this hotel for one night and had a junior suite which was very large and nicely furnished. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and attentive. We ate in the hotel restaurant and the food was a high standard and the service was excellent. the breakfast was expensive but worth every penny, a chef to make you eggs and a very good selection of fresh local produce. The champagne was a nice extra. The hotel location right on the edge of the dunes is wonderful and also only a 5 minute walk to the busy centre of De Koog. My only complaint is that the single beds are a bit of a dissapointment and maybe there should be a choice available, but on the whole a superb hotel.

This hotel is a golden oldie. With a very long hotel tradition, the current owner does his best to please his guests. Nice rooms, well apppointed, but with two single beds pushed together romance is not the main attraction :-).
Restaurant is OK, service a bit understaffed so be prepared to wait for your drinks.
Breakfast buffet is quite good.
Generally, if you like to stay in a typical luxurious family hotel, this is certainly a good choice.
On the down side; DOGS!!!! Terrible tail wagging golden retrievers that push their wet nose in your bowl of peanuts. And then, as if nothing happened, the owners disappear.

My husband and I were so looking forward to a romantic weekend away here, and everything about Opduin was perfect for it (sauna, Turkish steam bath, swimming pool, massage chair, cozy atmosphere in the brasserie, easy access for strolling on the beach, in-room breakfast option, etc) until you get to your room and find... Of course... The ubiquitous Dutch "double" bed. Which, as annoyingly always, is two tiny single beds pushed together, complete with one pillow each and one tiny single duvet! Not even the pretense of a queen/king bed through the commonly used illusion of a single large bed cover! Talk about a romance-killer. But this is unfortunately par for the accommodation course in Holland, so not surprising, just annoying.

The location is more than ok. Close to the dunes and the beach. The place itself is fine too. Nice swimming pool and facilities. However, the food in the restaurants is poor. Do not expect anything special. Poor service by stagiaires without super vision and no reaction if you make remarks about the quality of the food. We are still expecting a reaction.....
