Good points: We had a refurbished ("standard deluxe") room, which was perfectly comfortable with a roomy bathroom. Although there was a huge number of people at dinner, service was prompt and the food surprisingly good. We both had steamed mussels for a main course. I had sashimi to begin and my wife had smoked eel from the local lake. The... More

After consulting trip advisor we settled on this hotel and were not disappointed, in the contrary everything was great. Excellent welcome, super room, excellent restaurant and even though very busy they coped very well. As we needed a rest after the long drive and it was a Friday we visited the nearby cheese Market in Alkmaar, a must in your... More

We stayed for 2 nights in August. We had a premium room which was gorgeous, complete with rain shower, whirlpool bath and quality bed/bedding. Check in was a little abrupt and cold, with an eagerness to sell us breakfast, which for the price of the room should have been included. The pool area was rather shabby, had no towels and... More

Excellent location, ample free parking, spacious rooms, huge restaurant area. But what made us smile was the attendants' attitude and appearance. Young, attractive people, smiling and eager to please, impeccably dressed. The girls' blonde ponytails dancing in the air: what a way to have breakfast! My wife and I discussed wether it is training or natural attitude and we could... More

I stayed here for a week early June 2014. Excellent Van der Valk Hotel on outskirts of Alkmaar next to picuresque village of Akersloot. Loved everything about the hotel and can't fault it for anything. Enjoy your stay folks :)

While the location is nice for touring adjacent sites the facility is poor. Through the thin walls I could hear the conversation ,coughing and snoring of the next door guests. It also is a large hotel with an indoor pool making it a destination for families and/or parties like weddings. Our deck was littered -complete with used/dirty ashtray and the... More

Caveat: read my other reviews - I often (more than 80% of the time) give 4-5 star ratings. So, why a TWO? First Impressions: Long slooooow line at reception. Receptionists unclear on the concept of service. Poor employee training. Second impression: After totally unhelpful & vague directions to our room ("it's around the back in the second building") we walked... More

I stayed here on mulitple occasions, and have never been deceived. Spacious rooms, large bathroom, good restaurant, friendly staff. The only negative is the poor sound isolation. You have to hope that you have no noisy neighbours, or party people in the corridors.

Stayed in Deluxe room with good bed and nice large shower. Flat TV screen and free wifi. Service was ok and staff friendly, but i got the feeling that they could be more attentive to the customers. Breakfast had a good choice and good quality. For business this is a good place to stay, very convenient next to the highway.... More
