I really enjoyed my stay here, wonderful decoration throughout with the run up to Christmas. The rooms are very large and so is the bathroom. The rooms are very dim with lighting but my Dutch colleagues tell me this is typical of a Van der Valk hotel. I booked a room facing into the courtyard so I didn't get the... More

Although close to the location of the company I had business, and relatively cheap, these advantages were overshadowed by a number of important flaws. The rooms are very - very! - dark, due to a drive to use cheap super-duper-energy-saver bulbs. It is neigh impossible to see around you. I have to write quite a lot on my computer, but... More

We selected this hotel searching the last minute options for our peaceful get away. The very good last minute rate combined with the very positive hotel reviews made us opt for the Van der Valk hotel in Emmen. We did not regret it for a second! Everything was wonderful: staff at check in, parking, entrance hall, room and wirlpool bath,... More

After a 12 hour journey the hotel was a very welcome sight. Check in was quick, informative and professional. The room was spacious and had everything we needed. The bathroom was equally big and lovely. Jacuzzi bath a pleasant surprise. We had breakfast in the morning, again all good but was a bit of a surprise that guests were cooking... More

We were on a cycling trip through the Netherlands and stayed here for one night.. We arrived in the evening after a long days cycling and probably looked a bit dishevelled and muddy and got a very snooty response from the man at the check in desk. When he found out that we did indeed have a reservation and hadn't... More

Good location for getting in and around the local area. We had considered staying in this hotel previously, but am glad we did not book in this time. Although we did not stay here, we did eat in the restaurant and we really did expect so much more. Food was not really anything other than adequate. Hotel looks really nice... More

Stayed here one night on business travel, and will not do that again. Price was low and usually this is a fairly decent chain, but i must say it disappointed me. Or perhaps it has degraded since the last time i stayed at a van der valk about 8 years ago. Hotel lobby sets high expectations but from there on... More

Good location, overall nice hotel though could need some interior refreshing, it still has a lot of 80's charme. Staff was helpful and friendly, rooms were clean, standard I would say - nothing special. Free WiFi was a big plus. Double beds were only 2 single beds put together, that I would have preferred different. I would give 3,5 stars,... More
