The hotel Huis ter Duin has always counted the wealthy among its clientele. Members of the Dutch and Belgian royal families were also regular visitors. During the Second World War, the hotel was taken over and used to accommodate German army officers. This event was used later in the film “Soldaat van Oranje”, which was partially filmed in the immediate surroundings of the hotel.
Restoring its former glory
In 1990, a large part of the hotel was destroyed by fire. It was subsequently rebuilt and extended and is now a five-star hotel with 228 rooms, 22 suites and 19 multi-functional conference rooms. It consists of two sections, the light grey design of the original section is reminiscent of a stately, English country home while the new section is more contemporary.
Clay pavers – the perfect match
The hotel surroundings and connecting road behind the boulevard are gradually being repaved with an attractive ochre-coloured paving Wienerberger clay brick. The high durability of clay pavers will ensure that the hotel area will look stunning over decades. The choice of material reflects the grandeur of the hotel, the nearby dune landscape and the yellow-bronze cobblestones are characteristic of this area and have been repeatedly used in the past.
