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

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
