What a beautiful hotel, staff were very attentive and location was really good|Food was good in the restaurant and breakfast was really tasty. The staff were very obliging. Cycling was encouraged and bikes were for hire. A very good location and the canals were worth a visit

Room are very spacious and clean. The dishes we had for lunch was excellent. Service could use a tune up, menu on the website does not match the actual menu, we had to ask three times for a menu and it took 35minutes to actually get one. Outside area closes at 17:30, but 9 staff members doing nothing inside. Breakfast is nice, however the area is way too small and crowded and no hotel sized bread toaster. Staff was also rude when attempting to sit outside the (over)crowded area. I'm confident these issues will be fixed and will definately stay here again, the food alone is worth it.
