Diamond in the rough
A diamond in the rough, out in the middle of no where. Superb service and food. We found what we needed. The little town has a history of having several prisons, dating way back. Incredible history to be found. Unfortunately non of it in English, only dutch. You have to read up about it on line. Super accommodating staff. Helpful and friendly. We enjoyed long bicycle rides, exploring the country country sid.

Restaurant erg goed, hotel gedateerd/niet schoon!
Hotel is wat gedateerd en onze kamer was niet erg schoon, veel (dode)vliegen en rukte erg muf, leek erop of er de kamer langere tijd niet gebruikt was. Moest zelf dode vliegen uit het raam blazen. Restaurant deel niet hip maar eten erg goed!!

8/10 Very good

Ruim appartement, eens wat anders, De keuze in de keuken was wat beperkt, maar gezien de huidige situatie begrijpelijk. Vond de hele omgeving wel rustgevend maar ook wat creepy. Zeker ook gezien de geschiedenis van deze omgeving.

Vriendelijk & erg behulpzaam
Wij verbleven in Bitter &zoet omdat ik een operatie had in de naast gelegen hernia kliniek. Het personeel was super vriendelijk en erg behulpzaam. Ze waren op de hoogte van mijn operatie en hielpen met alles goed mee. Het eten was heerlijk!
