worst ever!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 1, 2007

I would not reccomend this place to anyone unless you are going to Amsterdam to have an extremly quiet and out of the way break!! the trams to amsterdam city itself stopped at twelve everynight so if u wanted to go out on the town u had to wait til 7 the next morning to get a tram home. then spend a further two hours getting a bus!! the staff were very friendly which got a bit frustrating as being Irish over enthusiatic americans can often be too much and far too fake for my liking!! the caravans were tiny!! i shared a double with my boyfriend at the time and we barely had a good night sleep in five days...there was also alot of flies swarming the room, and a draft from the plastic windows which was not very pleasant as it was thunder and lightening at the time we stayed there in August. there was a communal tent, however the flie problem was also a factor there and it was very dark and empty once the sun set. there is a lake but it is frequented by the richer inhabitants of the area which made us feel uncomfortable as we were staying in such bad quarters. we were the peasants of the park!!!! the closest town was a bike journey away which was plwasant, however the town itself was a tad strange....the occupants seemed like they were living in a time warp and the buildings looked like those on a film set...it was weird!!!!!!

Unique Quality: we had a pretty bad experience as one night we went to the city and got lost on the way back to lucky lake...we ended up on the side of a motorway and thankfully there was an inn nearby where we could call a cab which cost a bomb and struggled to find the location. we ended up getting cack at ten in the morning after a long night out..we were disshevelled, freezing and down 50 euro!!! besides the staff i would strongly advise people to avoid this place. the website has falsely advertised that it is close to the city but this is definitly not true. there are no bars or restaurants close by so if ur looking for fun this is not the place to stay. I will mention one nice restaurant thought in Holendrecht..it was a chinese restaurant and it was tastey but that is about the only good thing i can say!!!!!!

Directions: holendrecht

Funky Guesthouse

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 8, 2006

We stayed in a room on the ground floor. It is one of the rooms that people can view you from a web cam. The room was cozy and well...trippy. There were 3 beds and a bar in the room with your smoke tool of choice. The wall were covered with tapestries and the effect was very Amsterdam. I don't recall there being a television, but what are you doing watching TV in such a great town anyway?

Unique Quality: Fabulous staff. They made us feel very comfortable and were a wealth of information on things to do.

I loved the place. Location is not great as it's outside town. But that can be a good part too. Lucky lake offers you lovely 20 separate caravans. Place is reasonably clean, nice bed, clean shared toilets and bathrooms, coffee corner (self-service), Internet corner, Games room (tent). I think the place is charming. It's good after whole day of walking in the city to sit in front of your caravan and sipping coffee. Friendly and Relaxing atmosphere. Bicycles and Kayak for hire.

Unique Quality: It's nice little caravan. Not everyday that you can sleep in such a place. (er.. at least, for me) fresh air, friendly staff.

Directions: Follow their website. "Getting there" is explained there :-)
