Hotel Nobel

In the heart of centuries-old Ballum

Hotel Nobel

For four generations the hospitality of Nobel has been legendary on the Dutch Wadden island Ameland - and far beyond. The historic hotel is in the heart of quaint histo­rical Ballum. Nobel successfully merges history and contemporary luxury. A few years ago the entire hotel was renovated but the café was kept in its original state. Throughout the years hotel guests and island dwellers have come together to play cards, celebrate or just have a beer. Most of the uniquely designed hotel rooms have a private patio or balcony. Lunch or dinner are very enjoyable here too.

Dishes with world-class flavours
