We visited the hotel for a 2 night stay at peak season (summer). The room was nice and clean but for the price we paid per night we expected a more luxurious room. No mini-bar, no toiletries. The hotel charges 10 euros per night for a baby bed (!).
Also the breakfast was basic. A lot of items were not available anymore, like fresh fruit, orange juice, etc and it took long time before they would refill.
The service at the restaurant was very inefficient. We had 2 nights dinner there and both times we had to wait for at least 10 minutes before we could even order a drink, not to mention how long our order took. Very uncomfortable with a hungry toddler. The staff seemed inexperienced.

The day of check-out, we wanted to extend our stay by one night (for a Saturday night). Online there was a room available but for a minimum stay of 2 nights. The hotel insisted on charging 150% of our original booking rate for a single additional night, which we refused. Eventually the room turned out not to be booked at all.

Overall we feel that the service was poor (and impersonal) and that the hotel is overpriced. Although the location is good I would not recommend it unless there is an improvement on the service.

Room tip: Not on the ground floor.

It was excellent hotel where you can stay close to the water. Even that we were staying only one night, still it was unforgettable staying.

I enjoyed beautiful colourful sunset that you can observe looking out the big window with lake view.

They had cosy room with everything you need in there even coffee machine.

In the morning we had nice breakfast in lobby and could have a walk and made photos on the territory.

This hotel is quite popular among local people cause it was full in June.

It is the place where you want to return to and spend more time there. I would definitely recommend it. But its quite expensive

The hotel is new and nice. We booked a comfort room and it is pretty fine. Breakfast is also ok and you can park your car close by.

Unacceptable check-out policy. Guests are supposed to leave by 11 without exception. Even a short extension of the stay is surcharged with 50 EUR. Stingy approach and unusual handling of small enquiries to make customers happy.

The local teenagers had their weekend party 100 meters further at the lake. We heard their techno music and the sound of beer drinking teenagers till late at night. You do not expect to hear a burping crowd during your stay in a hotel.

Last but not least, the architecture of the building is a bit strange and kitchen smells go up till the second floor.

Below the line, we are disappointed- especially by the profit maximizing check out policy. It was most likely our last time here.

We wanted to spend Easter at the Dutch seacoast and after discovering how crowded things were, were very happy to find this lovely, new hotel available.

The Het Veerse Meer is not huge - 51 rooms - which goes along way towards making it feel cozy and more personal. Officially rated four stars, the hotel has a lot to offer - especially in terms of beautiful views in a stunning location directly at water's edge. The property boasts its own yacht harbor which likely will be crowded in the busy summer season, as well as a function room, a large restaurant and bar, lovely decor and even a well-equipped small fitness center on the top floor. Onsite bike rental is also offered and boasts regular pedal power, e-bikes and e-bikes on steroids. Sadly the price is not for 24 hours, as we thought, but only for "the day," which means it is a little overpriced, yet a major convenience in the bicycle-crazy Netherlands.

Desk staff was personable, as was dining room staff, some of whom wore many hats and served at the bar, the reception and the restaurant depending on the time of day.

That said,the rooms were lovely, large, each with a balcony. Ours overlooked the beautiful Veerse Meer as well as the yacht harbor and kiddie playground below. The decor was somewhat quirky; each room has a different theme. We were in room 204 which featured wallpaper depicting a variety of creepy crawlies and a huge portrait of a Turkish gentleman who stared at me all night long, even though I soon got used to him. The color scheme was in decent earth tones. Flatscreen TV featured channels from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the UK, the US, France and a few others. It's always nice to be somewhere where instead of the badly dubbed version of a movie you get the original with overlaid subtitles, as is the custom throughout the Benelux countries.

Other room niceties were a coffeemaker with a variety of coffees to choose from, a spacious desk and Wifi, as well as a sitting area, plenty of closet space, a hairdryer, a safe, and other niceties. Our room also featured a connecting door, so larger outings with kids or inseparable companions is a possibility.

The wifi was strong at odd hours; during peak times, it faltered and often bogged down. The room also lacked a minibar, something one expects at this level of property.

The bathroom was spacious and pleasant with a wonderful rain shower and shower gel and handsoap provided (in dispensers, sadly, as is becoming the custom in more and more hotels, although usually not in a 4-star property but usually more common in budget chains). The towels were not befitting a 4-star hotel; they were qualitatively not well suited and much too small. Also. the hand towels were in a closet outside the room, instead of on the rail beneath the designer sink. That was probably because there isn't enough space on the handrail for the hand- and small bath towels as the housekeeping staff also hung the folded bath mat there.

At check in, we were told we were on the second floor (which in Europe normally would be the third floor for Americans and Russians), so we pressed the button labeled '2' and were amused when that took us to the rooms whose numbers all began with "3".

The restaurant, while providing an adequate a la carte menu, clearly is aiming to serve mainly the gourmet 3-course meal. The Fletcher Hotel in nearby Middelburg had a much larger and more impressive a la carte menu, so perhaps the Verse Meer is still finding its way in that regard.

In the same vein, breakfast is served buffet style, but in a very poorly organized layout. Guests are constantly bumping into each other as the various parts of breakfast (cold and warm, breads, speads, ceareals, toppings, etc.) are all organized very haphazardly and without any discernible rhyme or reason - more like that's the way someone set it all up at opening in October and it has stayed that way ever since, much to the detriment and inconvenience of guests.

Another quirk is the total lack of any directional signage to this somewhat remote property anywhere. Luckily, the hotel website indicates that the street address and physical location are two separate things and provdes the correct input for GPS or mapping devices, without which getting lost is more than likely.

Would I recommend this hotel? Absolutely yes. Whether for a romantic getaway, a hiking holiday, a leisurely boating holiday, or just a nice place to spend a weekend or even a week or two, the hotel is well located, lovely in design and quirky decor, and boasts an excellent value for money ratio.

Room tip: Ask for waterview when booking. Room 204 featured a side view of the lake.
