Reviews for Grand Hotel Huis Ter Duin
I love the place. Service has gone up from poor to much better. Very nice relaxed atmospere. The only thing that one ahould expect on a busy day is that the kitchen takes a long time to get the dishes to the table. This was on the terrace. Maybe this is not a problem in the restaurants. Anyway it is a very beautiful place with a lot of nice things going for it. Definitely worth a trip

This is a beautiful hotel on a beautiful location. But checking in at 15.00 is a problem. Our rooms (2) were not ready, lady at the counter took my mobile number to call (?) when we could go up. Waiting in the lounge, till 15.45, and when we asked how things were they said: the rooms are ready, but have to be inspected first. What a chique idea! But after another half hour we got fed-up, also with this horrible lounge-music, and again we went to reception. (at 16.15) Ah, the rooms were ready, but they forgot to call us! The rooms could do with a freshening-up, as do the bathrooms. The views are great as always. Huis ter Duin is also environmentally aware, in the bathroom there is a sign pointing out the interest of making use of the towels twice, and to use water economically. In the 'Breakers' restaurant we asked for a carafe of water, but then the waiter said: 'we don't serve tap water' and we had to buy an (open) bottle of "Dune water' at â‚¬ 6,50. So much for the environment. Next day (we booked for 2 nights, family of 4 with 2-year old toddler) after breakfast and a long walk on the beach we went to the room at 14.00, and it still was not made. So we went back outside and had a light lunch. The little one had to take a nap, at 15.30 we went up, still nothing had been done. Finally, after a call and a conversation, the room was (again!) ready at 16.15. An expensive 'Grand Hotel' this size has to live up to its reputation. In spite of the good food they serve and the great location, we won't repeat the experience.

Stayed here recently as an alternative to Amsterdam. Really good service? Location great directly on the beach with great views. Be sure to book a room with sea view. Nice Bar. Good Breakfast. Looking forward to come back again.

Stayed only one night in a standard double which was a good size.Great location on the beach(ask for a room with a view) and close to restaurants.Parking at 12 euros a day was convenient but we thought breakfast was a little pricey so we had it elsewhere.Yes it could do with a re fresh but it's still grand.

My second visit to Huis ter Duin, one year later, did not differ much from the first one. Located at the beach, this grand hotel offers a breathtaking view if you happen to be in a room with a sea view (especially on a higher floor). This time I specifically asked for it and I got the chance to enjoy an amazing sunset. So, this is basically the biggest asset of the hotel, together with its proximity to beach Resembling somehow the past, this place has the feeling of a grand hotel, but unfortunately it needs to be renovated as it feels as if the "grand" has been lost somewhere 20 years ago. The classic style does not need to be changed, but it just needs refurbishment. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfy and generally everything is at satisfying level, even though it seems a bit worn out. Service is at a top level and several small requestes that I had were quickly taken care of. The breakfast offered a relatively good variety of choice, but adding some more fruits will be an improvement. In conclusion, Huis ter Duin is a spot that has to be visited. Despite its minor flaws it offers a very good (almost) excellent way to spent a weekend or some more days there.
