Van der Valk hotel Drachten is a good choice for exploring the north of the Netherlands. It is located next to the A7 motorway to Groningen and is also a 5 minute drive from the city center of Drachten. As such I have stayed with Van der Valk Drachten several times. The rooms are really near a 4 star experience... More

We loved the hotel but would enjoyed the nights better when their rooms would have been equiped with AC. Temperature in the rooms (even at night) was too high to get a well deserved sleep. It is cataloged as an **** hotel so we would expect that some rooms would have AC. Nevertheless, this is a good hotel with very... More

This is my second review of the "Van der Valk Hotel Drachten". During my previous visit refurbishing work was under way in the reception and restaurant area. The result is that a brand new entrance and reception area was beckoning to us at the bottom of a huge new parking area when we arrived. We were assigned standard rooms in... More

I stayed in room 37 and it was clean, neat, tidy and comfortable with a balcony. My bed was a combination of two beds together but it was still comfortable. I love the bathtub that I utilized often. Everything was working fine during my three weeks' stay there. The hotel receptionist is very helpful and friendly and I felt at... More

This was my first visit to the north of Holland and although this hotel was a little more money than I would normally like to pay, I really liked the setting and ambience of the hotel. The way the rooms are positioned apart from the main building offers quiet, relaxing and comfortable environment without any disturbances and I found the... More

Nice hotel, seems fairly recently renovated with a smart design. Bedrooms nice with very nice bathrooms. Mattress a bit soft. Bar (and staff) very nice for a few beers and reasonable, if unexciting, food. Breakfast room is mid renovation so a bit of a building site, but I'm sure this will be complete soon. Breakfast fairly run-of-the-mill not bad but... More

Rooms immaculate and modern. Breakfast was also very very good and the bar area is nice to enjoy a few drinks in during the evening. The gym is painfully basic though, just a treadmill, exercise bike and cross trainer. No free weights to speak of at all. Other than that a lovely hotel

Very modern hotel with high quality rooms, decorated nicely. The food was good and the service from the staff was excellent. Very pleased and will be staying again. The rooms all have free wifi which was very quick and allowed me to do the business work I needed to complete.

This hotel is nicely decorated, the rooms are big, clean, with lots of light. The bathroom has a huge shower and lots of amenities for personal hygiene. There is a safe box in your room and also a tea/coffee maker. Fitness is included in the price of the room. Breakfast is pretty amazing too, the choice is quite big: different... More
