We visited the hotel during a family trip. Hotel staff is friendly. Good dinner options. Breakfast was also fine with fresh bread, fruit and eggs any style. Rooms are small and basic, B&B style. Personally, I would recommend to stay in a hotel closer to Groningen city for more activities nearby.

Characterful hotel in rural Friesland run by an extremely pleasant family. 10 rooms and a restaurant and bar. Outstanding hospitality from owners Yvonne and Jorg; we were made to feel at home from the minute we arrived. Simple and comfortable en-suite bedrooms. The restaurant is excellent. We enjoyed the best meal of our 10 day trip to Friesland and Groningen...

If I did not have to work in this area, I probably would never have found this place, but having done so I found the owners friendly, the staff are very pleasant, the food is of a high standard, the beer cold and tasty and the place warm and welcoming.

Nice hotel in a beautiful surrounding. Good service. Rooms well equiped. I had a double room for me alone but I can imagine staying in that room with 2 people is not so comfortable, it is not very big. They have a curtainsystem that looked wonderful. To protect you from the sun in daytime you can pull up a transparant...

This hotel is located about 10 minutes away from Pieterburen and the Seal Creche. Very pleasant front patio and nice restaurant inside. We were warmly welcomed by the owners after our late arrival and asked if we would like dinner. We only ordered wine and the owners secret recipe apple cake! Room was very clean and bathroom nicely appointed. Great...
