Reading the reviews over the last years, there is not much to add. What's confusing though is that some reviews are a few years old and you still experience issues reported by than. But let's start from the beginning...Vlieland is what you would call a perfect setting for your North Sea vacation. A small island with huge beaches, clean and a pretty little village. Like a fairytale setting. During the season it is probably a bit crowded but now in September it was ok. The Seeduyn hotel is located stunningly right at the beach. Spacy, clean rooms, which are nicely decorated - suited to its maritime setting. The hotels facilities are functional and the distance to the sea is just wow. If you don't like to walk to the village in the evening, there is a restaurant which is really good. A warm french Brasserie with a small, but nice menu. The staff at the restaurant is fantastic. A young, friendly and funny team. However, what is really missing is a consistent way to communicate and inform guests. It starts with the booking on the website, where no detailed information about the transportation are explained. Luggage to and from the hotel is actually well organized, it's just not easy to learn how to apply. Traveling with a dog is nicely arranged, but no one tells you that all facilities are offered locally and you don't need to bring a dog bed etc. There are many of those examples and many are mentioned in the reviews over the past years, but apparently nothing has changed. The communication with the reception is not very helpful, the response to emails limited to very little information. Sometimes one has the impression that there is a lack of leadership in this hotel, also by the fact that for years there are no responses by the management anymore to reviews and comments at Tripadvisor. Overall the standard and the location is still a good experience. …
Nice place for a family holiday. We had a family room which had 2 bedrooms and a small living. The rooms were a bit oudated, but clean and quite nice. Breakfast was good and also the dinner in the adjecent beach club was good. Great place for a family holiday.
Positive points: - Location: only few steps away from the beautiful beach - Big room with balcony - Baggage transfer and free bus ride from/to the ferry are well-organized - Flexible in check-out time - Cleanliness and cleaning of room were fine Negative points: - Service is not really up to 4 star standards. Guests have to check thinks for themselves, you do not really feel pampered or that you get personal service, more that you get „processed“ -It is a very big hotel. In non-corona times suitable for conferences and the like. For a holiday hotel, it lacks some charm/the holiday vibe/the personal touch - Due to covid measures, breakfast and dinner were on take-away basis. If you are located in the side building you have to carry the food all the way through an underground tunnel to the other side and climb stairs/open your room door while balancing the tray. That can be tricky/inconvenient and does not give you a 4 star hotel feeling. This could be organized in a more guest friendly way (arranging a pickup location in the side building/delivering the trays to the doorstep of the rooms or something like that) - No bathrobes and slippers in the room Overall, and for the price/quality experienced I rate the hotel 3 points. …
The reviews on Tripadvidor appear to be somewhat mixed. We stayed in the part of Seeduyn on the right hand side (there is also a part on thd left hand side; it looks like this part is somewhat older). We had a spacious room on the upper floor. Big balcony. Views over the beach when having breakfast ord dinner in the room; and opening your eyes with views over the sea is just great. Big very comfortable bed. Breakfast to be picked up in the restaurant. Very well organised. Comfortable bath and shower. We made long walks around this beautiful island.
Terrible experience - we booked a family apartment of 3 bedrooms during the February holidays - bathroom: smells like a public toilet. Bath was broken. Only one bathroom for 3 bedrooms :( - no cleaning service. - no towel change - check In was delayed for hours. We have arrived at 11am. The room was available at 5pm. Late check out was not available though - due to COVID dinner take out was mandatory. The quality of food was absolutely awful. The order was incomplete. Booking a time slot for take out was stressful. - breakfast even worse. They have forgotten our order. Again incomplete and very poor quality - swimming pool reservations had been made. But the management had deleted our reservation for whatever strange reason. Upon arrival they apologized but it turned out in a very disappointing situation for the kids. The whole swimming pool experience was a reason to choose the Hotel Seeduyn. If we had been properly informed, we would have chosen a different hotel for sure - management was impolite and rude - service at the front desk was awful. They obviously were not able to adapt to the Covid situation. Nature in Vlieland is the best, which compensated for this awful hotel experience. I would absolutely recommend choosing a different hotel …
