“WHAT YOU GET IS WHAT YOU PAY FOR”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Just good value for money, like all van der Valk places.
Location excellent along the motorway, but you do need your car to go to Maastricht.
Rooms very spacious and clean. Light in the rooms is a bit scarce though, specifically if you want to read in bed and at the desk area.
Not a small hotel, so you do need your walking shoes and time to get from A to B.
Free Wifi and parking, as it should be.
Security is up for improvement with too many entries / exits not under (direct) control.
We had a deluxe room (at € 10,-- extra) but can imagine that the standard rooms do need refurbishing.
Good selection at the breakfast buffet with eggs freshly cooked to your liking.
Are we coming back? Yes. Can we recommend? No hesitation.

For the past 20 years I have been a frequent customer of the Van der Valk Hotel in Stein-Urmond. The hotel has changed over the years, improved their facilities, redecorated rooms, several times, and prices have kept up with the times too. Still the rooms are very nice, spaceous, with complete bathrooms, rooms well outfitted for business travelers, offering everything you need. I would always recommend this particular Van der Valk if traveling in southern Netherlands, or just across the border in the Aachen area of Germany. I have upon occassion re-arranged a leg of my trips so that I could stay at this particular hotel because it was very comfortable, accomodating, and staffed with good personnel.

Van der Valk is a well known chain in the Netherlands, and of course they have hotels outside of the Netherlands too, but they have a good reputation particularly in the Nethlands, and I would vouch for them anytime. The hotel is a good value for the money. I also recommend insureing that your car is locked and absolute nothing if visable from the outside. As another reviewer noted, and I can also vouch from a friend's experience, Car thieves do frequent this parking lot. Sad but true, and it does have video survalance too.

The breakfast offered is very good, buffet style, and offers everything you would ever expect to find for breakfast in the Netherlands, and in Germany. Evening meals are "different" than you would expect, unless you have ever eaten at a van der Valk before. The restruant is very large, they have a big, very young staff, and service is very quick, sometimes the second course being served before you have finished the first course. For the past 10 to 20 years the meals have been priced very well, a wide assortment of food is available, and the size of the restruant and their fill rate vouch for food quality and quantity. Despite white table cloths and cloth napkins, candles on the table, it is not high class dining, but more higher end "mass" dining, well fit to bus loads of hungrypeople, large parties. What I have noticed that is different than it was in previous years, is that the quantity of the veggies and potatoes brought to accompany the main dish. The main dishes appear to be about the same as before, but the veggies and potatoes that are delivered separately in small dishes are a lot smaller than they were in the past. New and very nice, particularly on Fridays is the evening buffet, and you can stand and watch your meat/fish being cooked. All in all this is still a very good place to eat.

Room Tip: park close to the front door or under outdoorlighting in the parking lot to protect your car. Rooms...

Hotel was great in terms of comfort and cleanliness, BUT BEWARE! just make sure you don't take a nice car into their car park! Within 30 minutes of parking my car at the front of the hotel a gang of car thieves arrived and removed my classic car. Both the police and several members of staff said to me and I quote " Oh yes this happens a lot at this hotel, it is known for it". We were not offered an apology or even a reduction on the hotel bill, the attitude was completely indifferent once they had produced the CCTV of the whole event to the police. I can't help but wonder how the professional car thieves new the car was there so quickly or do they spend all day at this hotel just waiting for nice cars to arrive?

Very handy for the Motorway, this hotel has great rooms some with balconys, the breakfat is good and the resturant is first class. There is also a good bar with quick and friendly service. I found this hotel to be great value for money and would use again, no complaints. Ohh its the only hotel that I have stopped in that has a pool full of Terrapins.

Room Tip: They all seem to be fine, if your a smoker there is rooms with a balcony

During a business trip to Holland I stayed at this hotel. It is located outside of the major centres and it was very comfortable, well priced representing excellent value. If you are around the area and in need of accommodation, I highly recommend this hotel, you won't be disappointed.

Travelled with a group and stayed here recently. Very comfortable, good value and good food for dinner and breakfast. The turtle pool is a bit weird but interesting. Although in the middle of the countryside the hotel was full so clearly appreciated by travelers..

Stayed one night on business, room was typical standard for a Van der Valk, including the balcony and 4-piece bathroom suite. Breakfast was a sumptuous buffet and the lobby was interesting, including a turtle feature (see photos). Super convenient for the Motorway, lots of parking and free wi-fi. Clean and comfortable, as I would expect from the VdV chain!

Fitness centre use is included in the room rate, and it is a fully-equipped gym which is also open to the public, so remember to bring a towel from your room.
