While in a remote area the hotel has easy access to a train station and is less than an hour by car to any attraction in the greater Amsterdam area. The hotel itself is an old country mansion with exquisite grounds. It was cold while we were there so we didn't 'explore' too much. Don't expect to be put in the main rooms of the old home, most rooms are in a connected addition - as is the less formal dining area. A must stay if going to the Amsterdam area!

"Great place to stay with easy access to Amsterdam"
Very comfortable and pleasant accommodation, lovely breakfast, good welcome and helpful staff. We enjoyed staying here for 4 nights and will happily use this hotel again. It is conveniently located just a few miles from the Newcastle ferry terminal at Ijmuiden, and offers easy access to Haarlem and Amsterdam by road or rail. The beach at Bloemendaal aan Zee is just 3 or 4 kilometers away by road across the dunes.
This is a cute little hotel in a small, quiet town, about a 20-30 minute drive from Amsterdam and near Haarlem. There are some nice restaurants within easy walking distance, as well as a grocery store and shops.
The hotel is very home-like, and it's obvious the owners want to make people feel as much at home as possilble. They apologized for not giving me an upgrade when I arrived because I'm tall (!). The room was small, but not as small as some I've seen in other parts of the Netherlands, and there was a elevator which is nice if, like I do, you have to travel with a lot of luggage. They offer a bottle of wine in the room, a refrigerator, coffee, and some other nice little amentities.
There was even a laptop in the room! I have my own so I didn't need it, but that was something I've never seen in any hotel in Europe (yes, I've seen it in Asia). The Internet access worked, was fast, and reliable.
If you don't mind a bit far away from the city, this is a great place to stay. With a rental car, parking is free and it's easy to get to from the highway.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet and pleasant stay, who doesn't mind traveling to go to places of business or interest. Very good experience.
A first time in a Hostel type Hotel and it was very pleasant, bunk beds and an on-suit for the 2 of us. Friendly staff, good breakfast....only one grizzle was paying for a towel, but maybe this is normal in a hostel. I gave top marks...
We found this hotel to be very nice and very well priced. My husband and I were in town for 1 evening and planned to do a little sight seeing in Amsterdam and Haarlem the next day. We found this hotel, near Haarlem, and decided to stay there because it was about 1/2 the price of hotels that were actually in Amsterdam. After sight seeing in Haarlem we drove about 15 minutes and were in downtown Amsterdam. I would stay here if I were in the area again because it was a great price and the room was clean and comfortable. The only thing I found strange was that all rooms seemed to have 2 single beds. Double beds did not seem to be an option. Also, the layout of the shower was rather strange. It almost seemed like it would have been a handicap accessible shower, but we were on the 7th floor, so I doubt that was the case though. It was not a problem, just a little strange.
Staff accommodating,room spacious and clean,last day soap and toilet rolls not changed had to go to reception for replacements,some problem printing boarding pass on hotel printer,staff sorted, overall a pleasant stay
