“1st class for business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

This is a very comfortable and modern hotel; the conference rooms were superb and I enjoyed very day of my stay; food was excellent as was the service... oh i do so miss the breakfasts, all in all I would rate this hotel very highly for business or pleasure; easy access to the motorway and to find.

Room Tip: They are all good as far as I could see

Review: Outstandingly good hotel (but expensive for area pricing standards). Rooms are just amazingly spacy, bueatifull bathrooms with nice showers. Nice working-desk at the rooms. Good (not exceptionally good) boxspring beds. An exceptionally good, divers & complete buffet-breakfast. The same exceptionally good, divers & complete buffet is present in the evenings (for only 25 EUR!!).
Negatives: rooms could be desuted better, pitty that the diner buffet is closed on Wednesday. Staff in the buffet-area is unfortunately not always very friendly & attentive (depending on your waiter, and that's a pitty in this kind of luxory-hotels).
Positives: Spendid rooms, beatifull bathroom, extraordinary breakfast- & evening buffet.
Variables: Mutiple business-stays, mostly one/few nights. All including breakfast buffet, attending evening buffet as well several times.

Room Tip: Ask a room at the pond/garden-side of the hotel. it gives you a great view from you room!!!

The van der Valk concern is changing from standard to luxury. This hotel is an example of the new luxury direction. There are standard and special suites to choose from. We booked a Honeymoon room which was a surprise if you look at the amenities, design, comfort and SPA facilities. Yes this room has a romantic Jacuzzi with led light, a sauna and a double rain shower. It was perfect after a great a la carte dinner in the beautiful designed restaurant with very friendly waitresses. In the summer the hotel offers a big terrace by the water .If you want to take a little walk then there is a park nearby with big animals ;-) There are also good shopping facilities nearby. Sneek is a lovely city. I heard that the hotel offers little boats now. We’ve been two times in the great hotel and already thinking to go for a third time.

Room Tip: Book the Honeymoon room!

This is the perfect hotel for visiting the Friesland area of Holland, about an hour from Schipol, handy for the motorway, loads of parking and a very modern, comfortable hotel. The staff were fantastic, they spoke perfect English and could not have been more helpful. We attended a dinner for 250 potato execs and the 8 course meal was cooked and delivered to us perfectly. Breakfast is cooked live for you as you wait and the rooms were fantastic and immaculately turned down each day. The lake in front of the hotel provides a lovely nature walk and opportunity to view ducks and geese of all types. I strongly recommend the hotel for business or pleasure

Room Tip: Rooms with a view over the lake are stunning

This hotel was offered on a website, specializing in "last minutes" deals. We were looking for a nice weekend trip, so to our mild surprise we found ourselves for a weekend in Sneek. (A two nights stay) Arriving at the hotel (with the help of the GPS), we observed ample parking space and a brand new hotel. The hotel is located on the edge of an artificial nature park and close to the A7 motorway. The reception area is roomy, and the facilities are spotless. The room has generous proportions and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is also roomy, with a bath and separate shower cabin, and is also spotless. Free WiFi is available in the room; the WiFi operates with smartphone and notebook. To summarize, an ideal place to stay to explore Friesland. Two remarks: Generally the service was friendly, but a bit patronizing; an attitude you also can experience at Dutch travel agencies and with KLM flight attendants. Furthermore the hotel has no separate concierge service or bell service; there is no help for conveying your luggage to and from your room. However, a limited amount (2) of luggage carts is available for the use of the guests. Maybe the hotel caters mainly for short stays. Overall, this hotel is to be recommended.

Room Tip: Meeting room facilities are located in the areas close to the main staircase/elevator. Furthermore...

Stayed here because we had a big party from a friend nearby. Arrived on a saturday evening and the restaurant was packed. At the very nice bar/bistro we had some coffee and looked around. This place is really nice. Great comforting seats to relax.

At check in we got a complementary upgrade to a room with lake view. The room is very spacious and the bathroom BIG!!! And all is clean! Beds are also big! And very comfy, we slept very good!!

Breakfast is in a buffet idea, enough too choose from. Lots of fresh fruit and also a cook whois scrambling the eggs if you want to!

In the neighborhood enough to see and do. Hire a bike, rent a boat to sail on the lakes or play golf at the nearby 18 holes golf course.

We will stay here again!
