A charming residence, just a few steps from the North Sea. Conviviality, hospitality and quality. Welcome to Tania Menu's hotel.
"The pleasure of seeing our guests smiling, happy and relaxed" .
Tania asserts that she manages more a "maison d'hôtes" than a hotel. "A genuine family spirit dominates the Hotel Duinhof, The Originals Relais" . Located in a residential neighbourhood of the lovely city of De Haan (also called Le Coq-sur-Mer), the old 18th century home - converted into a charming 3 star - provides a peaceful interlude with its 12 comfortable rooms, its vast luxuriant garden with a swimming-pool and its wellness area. Here, everything invites you to relax and disconnect. "Our small structure allows us to offer a personalised welcome to each of our guests. For this reason, they feel a little bit like at home" . This is a resolutely English style home - a pocket size country-house - that combines the warm charm of traditional homes from across the Channel with Flemish hospitality. "Our greatest satisfaction is to observe our guests, who arrive stressed and tense because of their busy lives, leave relaxed and smiling" .
The Hotel Duinhof, The Originals Relais's 12 rooms are genuine cocoons, elegantly appointed in an English countryside style. Antique furniture, English prints, design bathrooms, king size beds (180 x 200 cm) and large fluffy pillows confer an old-fashioned charm to these rooms where one feels comfortable. Each room is unique and all enjoy a terrace or a balcony with garden view. Families will appreciate suites that are spacious and particularly well-equipped.
