very nice Hotel, in a beautiful surrounding, located directly at the beach between the dunes. The staff is kindly and very engaged to fulfil your wishes. It is the perfect place to relax from the daily grind.

When you stay at this hotel you are miles away from the town of West-Terschelling, but there is a regular bus route. The hotel is a bit older, but the location cannot be beat if you love walking on the beach. The beach is best on this side of the island.

the Sandton is located about 200m from the beach. That's beautiful. it is also about 5 kms from West Terschelling, which is where most restaurants are. You can take the car, the bus or the bike into town, or have dinner at the hotel. The restaurant at the hotel is not cheap, I haven't tried it. Breakfast at the Sandton...

Wonderful location. Great bicycle rental rates and facilities. Hotel and restaurant a bit dated and not eexactly good value for money. Pool, sauna, steam room very nice. Housekeeping not up to standard. TTV dated, limited channels choices, sound volume issues and no HD.

Fantastic Location in the dunes of West aan Zee, but too expensive for experienced local facts and not fulfilling a 4 star hotel quality overall. Negative: Old furniture, dirty bathroom (hairs in the shower, spider/cobweb between sofa & wall), overpainted visible marks on the floor & room walls, carpet bot clean (rests of spilled fluids visible), missing daily variety of...

Friendly reception and cleaning staff, restaurant staff a lot less friendly. Rooms are ok, not entirely clean though. no light in shower, means taking a shower in the (almost) dark. Carpet / walls showed stains. Breakfast was good.

A dog friendly hotel, a few 100 metres from beach. Excellent breakfast and dinner options. Hotel is located directly on bus route from harbor and bike route back to West-Terschelling where there are numerous great bars and restaurants.
