Crisp and contemporary

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. The enthusiasm for local produce is mirrored on the menu. The chef creates skilful compositions with beautiful ingredients and elegant, original flavour combina­tions. The island is a true paradise of nature with forests, dunes, salt marshes, polders, mud flats and 25 kilometres of beach.

Casual enjoyment

Nobels Drinks


In the restaurant of Hotel Nobel on Ameland, enjoyment comes first. No hocus-pocus, no minuscule dishes but recognizable dishes with world flavours. A bottle of wine on the table, enjoying the dishes and above all: relaxing. Enjoy top service.

Nobel has always been the place where pleasure-seekers feel at home on Ameland. In 1902, the family business was already serving the famous Nobeltje. Almost 120 years later, Nobel is still a family business and the fourth generation of the Nobel family is now in charge.

Nobels finest - a parade of dishes, from champagne with porchetta to coffee with Nobeltje and everything in between, including wine and water for €89 per person

The restaurant, café and terrace are open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
