We really enjoyed all of it: the hospitality, the dinner and the breakfast. The room was, though not very special (we had an upgrade), but very much okay. Good beds, curtains, light etc etc. The kitchen is very natural, as well as for dinner as for breakfast. Top stay!

Great stay with kind students and staff. The facilities are good and the food excellent. Dutch cuisine is great in sustainability and taste. I like the fact that was a bathrobe and coffee in the room. Edvard

Friendly welcome at reception, escorted to room. Room was clean and cosy. Unfortunately, there was only one set of towels and two guests. Breakfast & lunch were both outstanding. Would absolutely stay again.

Good friendly relaxing atmosphere, a welcome change. Staff were very friendly, came out to help with luggage. Although it's a teaching school we had a very pleasant stay and it did feel professional. Good choice of breakfast.

The Stenden hotel is run by hospitality students. While there is the odd glitch here and there, due to slightly less experienced staff, we very much appreciated the overall stay. The staff was very attentive and friendly, and they very much went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. There is a restaurant attached, also run by students....
