About The Market Hotel
It’s no coincidence that The Market Hotel has a Bakery. The founder of WestCord Hotels comes from a real bakers family. The bakery therefore is an ode to the original Bakkerij Westers, that’s been based on Vlieland since the 50’s. Come and have a nice breakfast or enjoy a sandwich for lunch, everyday we will be baking fresh products for our guests.

Furthermore is the Bakery the ideal place to enjoy a nice fresh cup of coffee and get some work done or to take a lovely coffee to go! Prefer something sweet? We have a wide range of cakes, pies and cookies. Did you know our Bakery is working together with Bakery Luuk? Luuk his biggest passion is making and experimenting with bread and because of that, he delivers the most delicous loafs of bread and that’s the reason we love to work with him.
