“Probably one of the best price-quality ever; but only with car”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

If you have a car, need a space in the between Rotterdam (20 min), Breda (20 min) and Antwerp (1 hour) and do not mind to be in the middle of nowhere next to the highway, outskirts of Dordrecht, then this is one of the best deals ever. The hotel is brand new. Rooms and bathrooms are generously spacious (mine a superior room), nicely modern decorated, very comfortable king-size bed, great desk & chair, proper WiFi, in-room safe that fits a big laptop, free parking. Breakfast is a real treat in terms of variety, quality and setting (with good weather restaurant has plenty of outside seating). Roof pool, gym & bar. Many and of various sizes meeting & presentations room. The Van Der Valk Brand had a bit of an image problem about 20-30 years ago, but I have to complety reset my perceptions. This one hotel is highly recommended. For EUR 337,50 for 3 nights incl. breakfast you will not get a deal any sweeter than this.

Only minor detail: room mini-bar fridge is empty, no drinks or snacks, and I could not find any sales point on floors or reception either, so stock-up at a gas station or supermarket before checking-in.

Probably one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Very new and very modern. I saw the comment about the stairs and bags etc but there is a lift and a ramp, so I dont know what's the problem there. The staff are amazingly helpful and all speak perfect English. The restaurant is amazing, it has a really cosy but plush atmosphere. One gentleman came in way after the restaurant had closed but they still cooked him something small but hot which is great service!
My Argentinian pepper steak was amazing with a crazy amount of sides, good thing I didn't have a starter. I couldn't even finish the main, great value for money. The only thing is its nota pretty location, but it all depends on what you want .
I would definetly return though.

Stayed in this hotel in the winter. Arrived in the evening, when it was already dark outside. The reception area was very cosy with lots of 'fireplaces'.
1st night - Skyline suite - the room was amaizing, very large, great view. There is a jacuzzi 'in the room' - actually very nice separated from the room (as I donot like jacuzzi in the room) - nice design, and while in jacuzzi you can watch TV. There is also a 'fireplace' in the room - what makes the room very cosy on a winter evening. This is a luxury room.
2nd night - Sauna suite. The room much simplier than Skyline suite - here you do not have luxery feeling at all, very simple furniture, BUT there is a Sauna with a window IN the room and that was just GREAT. While sitting in the sauna we could see how it was snowing outside.Just great!
In both suites they put plastic glasses, no glas, it doesn't suit for a suite.
The Spa on the top floor is small, and the sauna was not hot, just a bit warm. There is a small swimming pool - when we were there ony 2 other people were there, so we could swim a bit. But if there are a lot of people, than it could be a problem.
The breakfast very good, the dinner was just OK, nothing special.
I would recommend this hotel for a winter weekend. If you like luxury - choose SKYline suite.

Room Tip: If you like luxury - choose SKYline suite.

Great place in many respects but what poor accessibility. The ramp does not arrive at front door level so one ends up hauling one' suitcases a whole flight of stairs. And same is the case in parking garage, which is half flight of stairs of lift. Incredible bad design for brand new hotel. And yes there is a disabled door through the laundry if one can find it. But Electr door was not functioning because of a bit of wind. Very poor experience and we will never return. Sorry Valk you have many great hotels but this must be the worst.

Spacious hotel, nice people. Good swimming pool and sauna. Restaurant has a few vegetarian options, I liked the starters (pasta) very much, main dish (polenta) was a little dull. Breakfast buffet was excellent.
We had problems returning to our room: magnetic key didn't work and it took the staff 45 minutes before they tried opening the door with a normal key - after 3 unsuccesful attempts with other magnetic keys...
We had a room bigger room then booked, in the end I was happy with my stay here.
I didn't like the area surroundings of the hotel (see photo), choose this hotel if you plan a trip further away.

We stayed here after a Sunday brunch and booked through the hotel website. They have very good a last minute deals including breakfast. They hotel is nicely decorated, has friendly staff, free parking and internet. Rooms are big with good beds and bathrooms. The breakfast was so-so as the food in the stations looked very overcooked and not looked after. After having to find a chef he cooked me a great omelet.

This hotel offers great value for money. The restaurant also is very nice, offers a great variety of food and is reasonably priced.
