Perfect for business trips. The personnel is efficient and welcoming. The rooms are big, if you are in the new wing, since they ahve been renovated not so long ago. the level of comfort and quietness is good too.

When in Holland we usually stay atbvander Valk hotels, however Haarlem and Eindhoven we'll skip. Drachten is a surprise,quite modern and nice rooms although small bathroom with a so called wet room, no bath. Cheaper than other Vander Valks though.

I have stayed here many times. The van Der Valk, Drachten provides easy access to all arrears of Friesland. Great rooms with many amenities, excellent on site dining, bar and breakfast buffet. The rooms are comfortable with good wifi, and a safe that fits your lap top. I would never hesitate to start here again.

Went only for one night, but it was great! Nice that I could take my dog with me. The room was very good, bed was great. Breakfast superb. Overall very good and friendly service. If I am in the neighborhood I will surely visit again.

Above average business hotel. Comfort rooms are a lot better than standard. Comfort is about 50% bigger and is better lit. Gym is small but functional, treadmill, cross trainer and bike. Food is good. Wifi is reliable. Bowling next door is a bit tired.

Failrly average hotel, nice design from the front. Restaurant is ok. The hotel was undergoing some installation of A/C units, but the work was only done during daytime. Breakfast was ok, as you can expect, price was fair.

As my usual hotel was fully booked I ended up staying at Van Der Valk. Rooms and overall impression is modern and tasteful. Rooms are large and well priced. Telephonic reservation process was flexible and relaxed. The dining facilities are cosy and there is a nice menu. Breakfast is up to standard. Overall a good hospitable experience.

Poor bed making. Housekeeping don't make the bed up. They just put the comforter or bed cover over the bedsheet. Rooms are nice and spacious. No privacy in balcony as they link to all the rooms. Repetitious breakfast every morning.

Was in Drachten on business for a week and stayed at van der valk. It is a little far from Drachten Central so a car or bike is needed. You can hire a bike at the hotel. The rooms were lovely and large, well thought out for those staying for longer periods. Breakfast was great many options. Restaurant was also... More
