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

Contact with the hotel reception before and during our stay was friendly and helpful. As we booked late, there was only a comfort room available @ 117 euros including breakfast. The room and bathroom were spacious, comfortable and clean. There was ample storage space, a large desk and there were two easy chairs. An electric kettle with tea, coffee and... More

This is a very nice hotel. I stayed there from Friday to Monday October 2014, the food was delicious. The purpose of my stay there was to visit Giethoorn and Leeuwarden. Giethoorn is beautiful and a great experience. The staff at the hotel was exceptionally nice. I chose this hotel because of the price and it was with breakfast. I... More

I come here once or twice a year for business meetings, and this is a great option for a good hotel. The rooms are modern and well kept, during winter kept at a decent temperature. The breakfast buffet is also good with many choices of fruit, pastries and all the basics. I'm not sure about it as a vacation spot.... More

This was my first stay in Hotel Drachten, but I have seen various other Van der Valk Hotels. You always know, what standard you get. Friendly stuff, nice rooms, affortable prices. Another advantage, it is close to the highway. Recommended.

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
