Great place to spend a night or weekend. Lovely staff and food. The rooms are excellent, clean, have all the amenities one could wish for right down to a Nespresso machine. A few more pods would have been welcome and some milk in the bar fridge. Otherwise highly recommended

We absolutely loved spending time at De Hoek for our Honeymoon. What a beautiful place to celebrate the beginning of our lives together as husband and wife! The food was excellent and the rooms were quiet, private and very comfortable. Thank you De Hoek for making us feel so welcome and for giving us a 5 star experience!
