    Oh, I love boutique hotels. Actually, I'm more of the Airbnb or even hostel guy, but if hotel, then boutique hotel. They are usually more to my taste, because they are lovingly and super stylish. This is confirmed in Texel again, when I read this with you and above all see the great photo of the room. Very nice!

    Best regards

      Dear Nicole,

      we are the same. We like boutique hotels in particular because they are so much more personal than hotel chains or even the most luxury hotels. Glad if you like our recommendation.

      Best regards,

      Hello Saskia,

      You are right, Texel is ideal for holidays with a dog. There are plenty of accommodations to cater for, and the miles of sandy beaches are great for long beach walks with the dog.

      Hi Jenny,

      I'm happy if you like the hotel. We stayed there and can highly recommend the Hotel Texel, not only because of its ideal location, but also because of the good food and the opportunity to try the Texel "Woolness" there.

      Best regards,
