Where’s Domburg? It’s in the Netherlands – a beach resort on the North Sea, dotted with sandy islets. Why Domburg? Well, for its fresh air and its endless natural beauty. The dams and dikes of the Delta Works that protect this region from the sea are listed among the seven modern engineering wonders of the world; up there with the Panama Canal and the Golden Gate Bridge. Now, where to rest your head in Domburg? We have the line-up.

Hotel Bommelje

Perfect for an indolent beach holiday or an intimate weekend away a deux, the modern, gabled apart-Hotel Bommelje is also your smart base for exploring the province of Zeeland. Inside there are smart little studios for two, in tonal expanses of black and white, some with kitchen spaces. Moving up, roomy Family Suites sleep four, with space for an extra bed. You can grab coffee in the restaurant before hitting the clean wide sands, or pedalling off on a rental bike. Alternatively, if here with a car, motor to Walcheren, with its creeks, abundant plants and birds.

Hotel In den Brouwery

Here’s a recently renovated hotel that absorbs three characterful buildings with eye-catching steep red-tiled roofs. Decor is uniformly lovely – jaunty stripes in black and white on armchairs and a dash of nautical-clapboard panelling for bedheads. The rooms and studios are within easy walking distance of Domburg’s main street and sands – we advise booking a beach hut to store your paraphernalia in. A nice touch is the terrace around the hotel, where guests gather for end-of-day ales. Don’t be shy – you’re welcome to join them.

Hotel Kijkduin

If you’re a stickler for a space with character on holiday, this family-run hotel won’t disappoint. Its rooms are nicely done out – rich-ginger-timber walls here, sloping ceilings there – delivering the ideal antidote to routine stress. Hotel Kijkduin is almost cocooned in nature, a five-minute walk from those wide, welcoming sands and the forest. From the hotel, you can rent a bicycle and bike through the many lanes meandering between historical towns and villages close by.

Hotel Zonneduin

Built among the undulating dunes, a mere hop from the sands, Hotel Zonneduin couldn’t be better placed for the sunbathers, swimmers and kite-fliers who love Domburg. (Remember, too, you’re in one of the sunniest spots in the Netherlands.) Even standard rooms have relaxing dune-and-sea views (although some look the other way, over parked cars – pick wisely). There’s a business-smart bar area for charcuterie and champagne, and buffet breakfast can be enjoyed, with that peaceful view of the sea, every morning before you set out to explore.

Hotel Pannenkoekhuis Vierwegen

Vierwegen is patronised by locals all year round. The reason? The fine restaurant. You might twig from the name that it’s big on pancakes, that Dutch favourite. A street or two back from the sands, it’s an attractive proposition, with its illuminated front dining terrace. You can choose between a double room, a four-person family room and an apartment (two-bedded, also for four). Sunny balconies make guests’ days, hence the repeat-visitor count.

Residentie Villa de Wael

Bed and Breakfast

Villa de Wael seduces you the moment you set eyes on it at the top of the drive: a late-19th-century mansion with art nouveau flourishes, it’s now a highly individual B&B that wraps its guests in high-ceilinged elegance, with stained-glass outbreaks in, for instance, the light and airy breakfast room. Expect polished bare floorboards and empire-stripe wallpaper in the timeless bedrooms, furnished with plush bergere chairs and contoured dressers. All in all a lovely slice of history to inhabit for a few forgetful days.

    How many hostels do you know tucked within an ancient, dramatic landmark?

    Spring-fresh bedrooms in gentle pastel tones are the main attraction at this hostel – ideal for solo holidaymakers, travelling trios and families. Its attractive setting is also a pull, just below the Domburg dunes, and while it’s not blessed with a restaurant, you can grab free tea and coffee in reception. They’ve got breakfasts to go (extra to the room rates), so you can start the day in the warm breezes of the terrace, or on the sands, which are right on your doorstep.

    The cosy Hotel Nehalennia is the face of trendy Domburg, with its pale, quiet rooms in shades of cappuccino and slate, designed for deep slumber. The whole place faces the North Sea and the beach, a perfect spot whatever the season. At the hotel, and on the sands, depending on the time of year, you can sign up for yoga, surfing and kayaking, among the many sports on offer. Start your day the right way with the hotel’s smoothies, berries and fresh, healthy bread.

Only 100m (330ft) from the beach, it’s a calm domain of toothpaste-fresh interiors. The establishment also runs a natty little B&B in the town, as well as holiday homes. This spruce, family-run holiday experience includes a sophisticated restaurant with a nice wine list.
