4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Cozy little hotel in the back woods of Heerenven. One can go cycling through the forest and enjoy serene and beautiful forest cover. There are very nice walking paths around the forest which are quite healthy and refreshing. The water canals near the town are quite interesting to go around.The breakfast at this hotel is okay,wish that there was more breakfast spread and more warm food. The evening are very pleasant and one can sit in the open air restaurant or the balcony of the rooms.

Nice, low-rise hotel in woodland area. Staying on business, there was not enough time to explore all on offer, but the evening set meal, (Mackerel tapas starter, Pan fried Salmon and sweet) was all well presented and delicious as was the self-service style breakfast selection. The rooms were located on either the 1st or ground floor. Room 015 was MASSIVE, compared with similar hotels, and offered all the usual amenities, (TV, En-suite bath AND shower etc). Well done Tjaarda Oranjewoud, I look forward to a longer visit next time.

Positives > nice location. Clean comfortable rooms. Average > Breakfast (particularly for the price...) To be improved > Bar and restaurant service is slow. Staff disinterested in serving customers. WiFi, although free is spotty at best.

Beautiful setting however extremely unhappy with inability to eat in the dining room due to Kitchen being too busy. Being jet lagged was not willing to wait 1.5 hours for a table despite their being plenty of free tables. Room service menu was a toasted sandwich at best so ended up with deep fried bar food and dips for dinner. Not happy at all!

We had a comfort room with french balcony. And a bathroom with shower in the bath. Nice view at the garden. You cab make nice walk an go for an bycecle ride. the bikes are for rent at the hotel. Visit teh Övertuin"and make nice pictures of the great houses. If you are in winter, you can go to teh Thialf skating hall, or an yshockey match.

The rooms are lovely and clean and the hotel is in a beautiful setting. I only chose this hotel because it had a swimming pool and sauna with steam room etc. After a lovely first day and a long one at that, we arrived at the hotel unpacked and decided to go for some drinks in the bar. I only ordered 1 beer, 1 low alcohol beer, a sprite and a cup of tea. I also asked for a carton of milk for the room and was shocked and disappointed when the barman said €24 wow! So I said nothing and handed over €25 and received 50 cents change! I spent over the 5 days in Friesland over €1000 on dining out trips presents etc. But guess what I never bought another drink in that bar, and neither did any of the other members of our party. This was just on principle of that first night on getting those drinks. Also one last point, after having a lovely swim in the pool we all decided to have a sauna. I was not happy when all off my party were chatting and enjoying the sauna for one of the staff coming in and saying we had to be naked! To use these facilities... So we never used these facilities again. I also thought​ what a rule to have seeing how young adults or kids may even use them... Anyway the hotel is lovely but that's what my gripes were on my visit. So really they lost out on €100's in drinks and meals we where going to have.

I have stayed at this Hotel 4 or 5 times in the past. The Hotel is OK, although the room fittings are becoming a little dated. The restaurant has changed in 2016. The food is still good quality, but the service depends on who you get. It took me too long to grab the attention of someone to serve me, and my food got served to the wrong person. Twice! Not good enough for a restaurant with that price tag.

The Golden Tulip Tjaarda Oranjewoud is on the outskirts of Heerenveen in a wonderful nature reserve. The staff are always polite. helpful and professional. The rooms are very well maintained and clean. The food is always excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel.

If you are a tourist in The Netherlands and want to taste more than just Amsterdam and Rotterdam: head north. This hotel is a perfect starting point to discover Friesland. Good restaurant, nice breakfast and ace location.

We stayed 2 nights at the golden tulip Oranjewoud. Hotel, wellness and spa are perfect. People working here are very welcoming. Area is very nice and quiet, with a lot of interesting place to see. People at the reception will help you to guide you about what to do in the area
