Often when travelling in a taxi to the hotel I am overtaken by a sense of disappointment as each nice hotel disappears in the rear view mirror. However this time I was surprised to see that I had been booked into the nice looking hotel! The hotel is large but the staff are personable and also speak perfect English, which... More

We spend a night in Assen in the Van der Valk Hotel. The hotel is located close to the highway and the city at the same time. Parking is available just in front of the hotel. The check in went well, very friendly staff. Our room was close to the gym (a few cardio machines) and very quiet - surprising... More

Wonderful hotel, I would definitely stay here again. Great location and easy to get to Assen TT track which was the main reason for our visit. Even though the hotel was close to main road our room was very quiet.

Spent one night at this hotel, on a business trip. The hotel is very average, there is not much more to say. The Food is oki - the rooms are oki. But there is nothing to lift it above the feeling of average.

Having stayed at some other hotels for recent visits, it was nice to be back at the Van der Valk. Nice refurbished room and decent food in the restaurant. Downside is it is on the outskirts of Assen and a lengthy walk to the centre

Stayed a couple of times with the Vandervalk Assen. Value for money as described by previous reviewers. Spacious rooms, overall cleanliness is good. Tapestry in the hall shows wear, might need to be refurbished in the near future. Staff is friendly but needs to step it up. It's the little things that make (or break) a stay; being told off...
