TravelPod Member ReviewsStenden Hotel Leeuwarden
The hotel is part of Stenden University and is managed by the students who study hotel management. Hotel and rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is helpful and very friendly. Since it is a learning institution not everything is "perfect", f.e. the spoons at the breakfast buffet were too big for the jam jars. The location is really great though, it's a 10min walk to the city center and the hotel offers free parking.

I'm not really into shopping but we were certainly impressed by the amount of choice in furniture that one can buy in this kind of place. We certainly don't have any similar type of shop in South Africa.

... is stunning, so green and so neat. The towns are spotless and the people are friendly. When we finally stopped we had run up a distance of 75 kms for the day. This is a new record for us on our bikes, our previous being 72 kms last year in Switzerland.
Feeling very tired and bum sore we had a quick braai before climbing into bed for an early night. Sun still ...
... moments, as in we've been here before, we arrived back in camp 52 kms of cycling later.
Apart from navigation confusion, the whole experience was great, as the countryside is stunningly beautiful, with meadows filled with cows and sheep and canals everywhere. The Dutch people are extremely neat and tidy. The houses are all very well maintained with picture book gardens filled with Rhododendrons in various colours. ...
