The room itself are made out of old German type cottage where rooms are claustrophobic triangular in shape, with only one window. The location itself is remote not public transportation. The nearest infrequent bus stop is about 1.5 miles away. No UBER comes by. One UBER, that I took from train station, the guy told me this area is for old retired people.
The place itself calls it to be Bed and Breakfast place. The owner charges you for the breakfast. Horrible greediness at that.
The wi-fi service is a completely different thing. In this day and age poor wi-fi connection is just not acceptable. Having widely traveled around the world. I thought that the wi-fi is a guaranteed thing. For me since I was traveling I had no phone and depended on wi-fi to communicate with everyone. Because of no wi-fi I was completely shut out. When I complained about it, the owner said its working for him in his room, which is in a different building. I asked him if I can change to the room which has wi-fi, he said there are no room available. He lied to me as I was the only person in the whole premises. I asked him to come and I can show him that there was no wi-fi signal. At which point he cut of all communications with me. The owner's attitude was horrendous! UGGH!
Shared bath is closed off to you if someone else is using it. No very convenient either.
This place has lot of issues for me. I would NOT recommend it to anyone.
Without doubt one of the best experiences we have ever had on a short break. Accommodation is fantastic, hotel small and extremely intimate with some of the best gardens you will ever see set In the idyllic village of Giethoorn. Bedrooms extremely well appointed and luxurious.
That then brings us onto the food! The 6 course tasting menu contained some of the best dishes we have ever tasted, red mullet, zander, pigeon and the sweet were on a different level. The wine matching was extremely good and reasonably priced for such quality. Staff hugely professional and Martin chef patron and Marjan front of house were fantastic.
The breakfast was almost as good as dinner! We will be back soon.
This small restaurant/ hotel feels so authentic. The staff is a pleasure. The room suite is spacious. When we arrived there was a hot spell so the bedroom was warm. The staff and owners were conscientious to ensure our comfort. The food is outstanding. There are only a few rooms available. The garden is beautiful.
During the year we try to have a couple of times to come at peace again after a busy period with our kids. We love them a lot. But we love ourselves to and so we love coming to De Lindenhof lodges in Giethoorn time after time. We ENJOY the hospitality of Martin, Marjan and their team. They have more than excellent suites with all luxury and they do whatever they can to make you feel at home. For us this is our second home. A beautiful place to come at rest!
The whole experience of sleeping and having breakfast in a place owned by the chef who is going to cook the dinner is very inspiring. The room we were given was simple yet elegant, with nice decor and touches - down to the choice of lamps everything was very well thought-through. The bed was very comfortable and the gardens and surrounding are really beautiful (even if Geithoorn is VERY touristy - it is said that self-respecting Dutch people snub Geithoorn a bit, and perhaps for good reason given it feels a bit Disney-landy - yet this place saves it all). Location is truly excellent.
