    Best quality for a good price

    Room is spacious and comfortable. Nice bathroom with bath and separate shower. Breakfast is good and plenty of choice.

    We had to wait long for dinner at Asian restaurant as it was very crowded, but staff was very helpful and friendly.

    “My tip: Plan a trip to the beach and day to Leiden city ”

    Buiness stay for RAI

    General areas looked and felt of high quality. Very positive staff.

    My room 119 seemed very tierd and in need of updating. For a UK visitors the evening meal options were not expained.

    “My tip: maybe look at rooms as they do not match the quality of the main building ”

    Have lunch or dinner in the hotel it is the best value for money!

    You always are the best and we hardly ever have a reason to complain. This time we had to.

    Your room service did a terrible job, did not clean the coffee station and cups, took all towels and did not replace them!

    “My tip: Make sure you book the comfort rooms!”


    Other maart 2012

    Fix up the place and charge a few bucks more

    Overall appearance of the hotel is run down. Their kpnserver did not work for me. Food not very good and to read one of the newspapers they have on the stand you have to pay $4. Yes that is right $4!!!! Most van der valk hotels that I have stayed at are good or very good but this is not'one of them


    Young couples oktober 2011

    Overpriced compared to the other Van Der Valk hotels...

    Compared to other Van Der Valk hotels, most rooms have a 80's look.. But it's all clean and everything works like it should.

    It's noisy. We had a room with a door to the next ( to make it a double room). We had a 0600 wakeup call from the neighbors, just going to the toilet/shower etc..


    Older couples juni 2011

    locatie prima, service slecht

    Locatie, modern

    service in restaurants ZEER slecht en totaal niet klantgericht.

    Your front desk staff were very friendly and helped us with a room in the morning hours as we arrived from overseas by air and needed a room for a rest

    Would highly recommend this hotel

    Restaurant superb and service was first class

    Tea and coffee in room would be an asset

    Young couples januari 2011

    perfect hotel for travellers/short stay in any way, recommendable!

    breakfast, clean room.



    Other december 2010

    Nice hotel but you need a car

    Nice sized room, very spacy, clean, all day hot water, great front desk service

    The room was freezing when we first walked in. You could have turned on the radiators prior to our arrival since it was very cold. The bathroom was very cold all the time making it very difficult to take a bath. Far from train services and taxis cost a fortune.

    Excellent Base for our Amsterdam Visit

    Rooms were spacious and very clean, we were given the choice of upgrading which we did and could not fault this. Staff were helpful and polite. Good access for public transport and motorways. Local information guide given about area. Only stayed two nights so did not get chance to visit local area, Amsterdam was our aim.

    No real minus points. Food was abit expensive when paying for a family of 4, and not enough vegetarian options. But probably in line with what a family would pay if coming to London.

    Excellent value and easy parking

    Up to the full Van Der Valk standard and lots of parking

    Problem with a noise in the plimbing but sure they will have fixed it.

    Going downhill fast

    Value for money.good breakfast selection .friendly staff

    restaurant overpriced for fast food at al a carte price,waited an hour for food,we had problems with tv,internet and worst off all our room had no taps on the bath so spent 20 mins filling tub with shower,were offererd a free cup of tea or coffee next time as compensation an insult after using this hotel for 15 years

    Young couples september 2010

    the motel main building was absolutely beautiful! Decor absolutely amazing, staff friendly, ozzo bar and staff fantastic! Restaurant top class. Motel rooms outside were a good size, lovely soft beds and decor lovely...very clean throughout the complex...very classy

    One issue ruined my stay and that was the 'double' bed that I was 2 singles just pushed together but wouldnt stay together and was an absolute nightmare causing me to have sleepless nights because had to keep getting out and pushing mattresses together because arm was getting trapped in the gap etc.....very upsetting and annoying.


    Travelling alone september 2010

    Good business hotel

    Modern hotel, close to major highways, no faults, not very inspiring either, good room rate for a location close to Amsterdam airport. Abundance of human hair on my bed was resolved quickly with a complimentary upgrade, good breakfast.
