Arrival and departure

Does the beach pavilion belong to the hotel?

Yes, beach pavilion Zoomers is owned by the same owners and that is why we call it our ‘sister’. There is a close cooperation with packages amongst others.

Where is the beach hotel located?

The hotel is located on the coast in Castricum, on top of the dune overlooking the North Sea. The address is: Zeeweg 10, 1901 NZ Castricum. Plan your route to the hotel here.

From what time can I check in?

You can check in from 15:00.

We need the time to prepare your room, so unfortunately it cannot be done any earlier.

From what time should I check out?

Check-out is always at 11.00, unless you have booked a late check-out (13.00).

Can I park and unload at the hotel?

It is not possible to get out of the car directly in front of the hotel, but there is a “kiss and ride” lane on the roundabout at the end of Zeeweg. Get off here and let the strongest carry the suitcases!

After this you can choose where to park your car: you can park for free at the beginning of the dunes in the parking lots at Zeeweg (10-15 mins walk back) or pay when you drive into the car park. The rate depends on the date and time of entry.


Is the hotel open all year round?

Yes, our beach hotel is open all year round. Are you coming to stay?

Is there a reception desk in the hotel?

No, there is no reception in our beach hotel. Hotel guests book and pay online in advance and receive a personal access code for the room by e-mail. During the day, until 18.00 hours, there is always someone who can speak to you (by telephone). You will receive tailor-made advice and tips about the surroundings if required.

Can I cancel my booking?

No, in our terms and conditions, on the homepage and in the confirmation email that will be sent, it says that our reservations are non-refundable. Which means no refund is possible. Once the booking has been made, you agree to a final payment.

I can't book for 2 weeks in January, is that correct?

Yes that’s right. Every year in January we close for 2 to 3 weeks in order to completely refresh the hotel. New lick of paint on the walls, minor repairs, etc.

We would love to receive you before or after!


Can I eat at the hotel?

Breakfast and dinner are served in our ‘sister’ beach pavilion Zoomers. In addition, each room has its own design kitchenette with refrigerator.

Remember to book your dinner in the pavillion before 3pm if you want to be sure of a table!

Can I smoke in the hotel?

No, smoking is not allowed due to hygiene and allergies.

Are pets welcome in the hotel?

No. Although we are huge animal lovers, pets are not allowed in the hotel due to hygiene and allergies.

Until what time can I enter the hotel?

Since you have the access code yourself, you can enter and leave the hotel whenever you want. You don’t have to check in with us. However, if your stay is over, you will have to leave the room before 11 a.m. on that day.


Is there air conditioning in the rooms?

No, we do not have air conditioning in the rooms, but we do have fans available. Fans are much more durable than air conditioners because they use much less power.

What if I lost my access code?

Don’t panic, we have our emergency number for that: +31251342383.

The wifi is not working, help!

No problem, 9 out of 10 times the wifi works again when you switch it on and off. If you can’t work it out, please call: +31251342383.

Can the high tea also be made vegan?

Can the high tea also be made gluten-free?

For the most part we do. We do not have all types of pastries gluten-free, but we replace them with fresh fruit.

Can I make reservations on the terrace?
