“Good hotel, but quite small”
Reviewed 25 March 2008

I have stayed in this hotel twice. It's part of the van der valk chain which usually has good value and good rooms. This is one of their smallest hotels. Staff is nice and helpfull, restaurant is good, but small. There is plenty of free parking. The rooms are comfortable. The first time I stayed there in 2005 I found the room somewhat small, but still ok. The second time I ordered a room with jaccuzi but
the reception gave me a room with a bubble bath which is ofcourse something very different. However they did take my complaint serious and gave me a small discount. All in all I prefer the larger van der valk hotels. The price is about 80 euro a night. Breakfast buffet is good with freshly squeezed orange juice. This hotel is about 25 kilometers from the center of Amsterdam.

  • Liked — fair prices, room is comfortable

Reviewed 22 May 2007

We stayed here for 2 nights for a friends wedding in April.
The hotel is actually really nice - the grounds are lovely as are the rooms.
For the €90 a night that we paid it was well worth the money.
Breakfast was good with lots of continental stuff to choose from.
The only down side was when we came back from the wedding at about 12.15am one of our parites room key wouldn't work.
We went down to reception to get them to re-code the key but there was no staff in the hotel.
We phoned the reception from our room (our key worked) a number of times in case someone was sleeping behind the desk but we got no response.
Eventually we were forced to call the police who had a number for the manager. When he arrived he said he only lived 1 minute away and that if we'd dialled reception from our room it would have diverted to his mobile. This didn't happen and the manager refused to apologise saying that Dutch law meant no staff had to be in the hotel at night. I find this very hard to believe.
We managed to get into the locked hotel room more than 2 hours after we arrived back at the hotel.
All in all, this hotel is very nice but don't rely on the staff to do anything for you or even be in the hotel at night to tend to an emergency!
