We stayed two nights in The Stroopot and had an extremely relaxing and enjoyable stay. We, ourselves, run a B & B in England and found a generally lower standard of room facilities ithroughout Holland. This is reflected in the price, though, which tended to be lower than in the UK. That said, The Stroopot had the best we encountered on our cycle tour. The room was large and the bed firm and very comfortable. The bathroom had a shower and a large bath, with plenty of hot water, perfect for relaxing in after a day on the saddle. Mrs Brown was very helpful and informative and provided a very tasty and generous breakfast. She even supplied us with bags to pack the uneaten rolls for a picnic lunch.
One slight drawback might be the distance from the town centre, only five minutes or so on a bike, but a fair old walk to the nearest restaurant.
The Stroopot proved to be an ideal base for exploring the beautiful island of Texel, and we would not hesitate to stay there again.
The history and Saga of The Stroopot was fascinating and worth a read on Google.
