We have been visiting the Netherlands regularly for just over 40 years and this hotel experience must be amongst the best, if not the best, we have had to date. We got to the hotel a little early but it was no problem.The friendly and professional receptionist found us a room and so were able to change into our cycling... More

Very large room with a small space to sit outside. Free wifi. Functioning and quite silent airco. Large bathroom with bath and separate shower. Good bed, slept very well. Service friendly and efficient. Very clean. Filled mini bar. Absolutely value for money.

The Van der Valk hotel group are all over Holland and provide most major towns and cities with comfortable and I would suppose affordable hotel rooms to a very high standard. The hotel in Assen is more functional than funky and although all the meals I ate there were of a good standard with large portions it is certainly not... More

We chose this hotel because it's central to discover a major part of Friesland. It's next to the A28 motorway and a 15-20 minutes drive to Groningen. The hotel is real big and with a huge parking area. Disabled people have reserved parking close to the reception, otherwise you have to make a long walk. Check-in was fast and staff... More

Over the years we have stayed in many van der Valk Hotels and we have very rarely been disappointed. The brand has improved a lot over the years athough there are quite some differences between the new ones and the old ones, so to say. Assen is a good mix of old and new. The older part is well maintained... More

I stayed here for a ten day business trip and I really liked it so I will be using it regularly. My room was very nice with an enormous bathroom with a spa bath and seperate shower.

We were meant to stay down the road at De Bonte Wever. But when they let us down, Hotel Van der Valk calmly stepped in and picked up the pieces. Their staff were kind and professional and the rooms were spacious and spotless. Steve and Debbie Silk

Stayed in a few Van Der Valk Hotels the past year and mostly business related. This time I had an appointment in Assen and did not want to drive into the city centre to find a hotel. Van Der Valk has improved over the years and is not a bad place to stay, but would not go here if I... More
