Now a national heritage site, below the restaurant at Oude Werf you can view the remains of its various incarnations revealed during archaeological excavations in 1981, and the hotel staff will happily give you a guided tour peppered with historical anecdotes.
The rooms at Oude Werf reflect a combination of old and new with accommodation in the original building as well as modern wings overlooking the garden and pool, or the courtyard.
Decor styles are different too, being either traditionally furnished with period-style pieces, or vibrantly contemporary. Whichever you opt for, all the comforts you expect - wi-fi, Nespresso machine, TV and so on - are provided.
