This hotel is a real dichotomy which makes it difficult to have a strong opinion, one way or the other.
This is a non-chain hotel and tries very hard to offer a good service at a reasonable rate, and for the most, it succeeds. This review is based on their Superior Twin Room, and a two-night stay.
Abundant on-site parking and tea and coffee in room are welcome, and the room was spacious and simply furnished. Bathroom (shower, no bath) and separate toilet are clean and recently refurbished. Bar was good and restaurant was excellent. Good breakfast, covering most options, both hot and cold.
On the negative, location is a little odd, on the outskirts of the pretty costal village of Oostvoorne. Driving through its cobbled streets, especially late at night, I though I had to be in the wrong place, despite what the sat-nav was telling me. Internet connectivity is very poor and if you do get connected, download is snail-slow, which might be fine if you’re on holiday, but for business users or your teenage kids, all a bit of a nightmare. Building enhancements/banging in the morning meant sleeping late wasn’t going to happen, and the swimming pool was not available. And finally the view, whilst eating my excellent breakfast, was across the dunes to huge port cranes the smoke belching oil refinery. I except the the local soil is mostly sand, but a row of trees and shrubs would soon grow up to hide most of it. Minor thing, but the room numbering is odd and defies standard convention, with 1st floor rooms starting with a “2”, so very Dutch! Staff were helpful and tried hard to make my stay pleasant.
Would I stay here again, maybe, maybe not.
