The title of this review says it all. Our only regret is that we could only stay here for one night. We absolutely loved the atmosphere and the customer service, we didn't book through booking.com so had no problems. The facilities are immaculate and the rooms are very clean and very comfortable. The dinner at the restaurant was excellent, as... More

After reading all the reviews, I had the unfortunate opportunity of booking at this hotel. Upon arriving late in the evening after a long but joyful day out in Amsterdam we were received by a young lady that was more than disgraceful to say the least. After giving her our confirmation from booking.com, she proceeded to tell us that we... More

Dear guest, thank you for your feed back although we do wonder if you have the correct hotel? There is worldwide an issue at booking.com concerning booking children on their site, but one can see very clearly on their site there are costs involved for children. We advice you to address your comments to booking.com. Two adults and 3 children... More

We always like to go back to this hotel, especially in the winter but not only. Kids can enjoy the swiming pool, tennis, ping pong. breakfast is great and room is wide enough for 2 kids ( no option for 3 kids in 1room). disadvantage : no windows in the rooms pointing to the main room. might be noisy in...

Thank you! Such nice words from our regular guests is great to hear. We're glad you always enjoy your stay with us. Rooms on the interior side of the hotel may be a bit less quiet than the exterior rooms facing the parking lot. Again, thank you for your feed back and needless to say we very much look forward...

Really everything that my wife scotlandtiger999 states is correct. great staff and service. JW, and the Ocean room bar staff were always friendly and gave us some really good advice if eating out in leiden. The hotel is only 2e away from the town by public teansport. thanks again for a great break.

Also stayed in this holiday part of a group booking (also for hockey, not the same team!). Found it very pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble.

I was here for 10 days on a group booking and the hotel and staff could not have been more flexible and helpful to us. They helped us organise a birthday party, gave us access to a meeting room every day, provided an information board and helped out with all manner of enquiries. And none of it seemed any trouble....

This is only a review about the Garden Restaurant of this hotel. I live in the neighborhood and go here quite often for the Italian buffet since it has a wide range of nice dishes and for a good price quality ratio. Worth to mention is that twice a year, mid June and September, they have a lobster buffet week.... More

Stayed here for a single night, to gain enough points in the IHG Big Win challenge.

We preferred to stay in Leiden for our recent trip to Netherlands, because our main focus was the Tulips. Having had no experience of Holland before, we relied on the 'Holiday Inn' brand and the IHG group to ensure that the quality met our expectations.
