Hotel De Lindeboom (The Lime Tree) is located in Den Burg and situated on the Groeneplaats, the square just in the centre of this ‘capital’ of Texel. Therefore a perfect place if you are not on Texel for the beach and the sea and during off season periods. The hotel has a car park (€ 6,- a day) and it also possible to rent bikes at the front desk.

De Lindeboom does exist from 1895 and even now it has in my opinion a lot of ‘old charm and hospitality’. Rooms are renovated and do have all modern amenities one can imagine (bathroom, air-conditioning, floor heating, internet access, colour TV and really nice beds).

It has a couple of restaurants; we did like most the so called Café Brasserie with a warm interior (a little bit like an English pub), serving tasteful diners. The oldest part of De Lindeboom is Het Schoutenhuys, which dates back to 1611) and is a well known restaurant on Texel (we missed it because it was open from Wednesday till Sunday). The excellent breakfast buffet was a great start of the day.

De Lindeboom has a nice sunny terrace and even early February we could drink our cappucino enjoying the sun and watching Texel's streetlife.

Unique Qualities: The charm and hospitality of a family owned hotel.
Perfectly located in the middle of the nice village of Den Burg.
It offered very interesting special deals.
