“High quality hotel providing everything we wanted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

This was an excellent hotel. The access and parking were easy and the accommodation was high quality throughout. The rooms are very well appointed and quiet. The Wifi was excellent. The food was very good and the staff helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: I suspect all rooms in this hotel will be excellent.

As a frequent guest at vdValk hotels all over the Netherlands I can honestly say that this property immediately won a place in my heart, vdValk are generally good to excellent… this new property generously exceeded my expectations. From the instant you enter you receive a warm welcome which is only an indication of what is yet to follow.
Our room on the second floor was one of the smallest in the building, and smaller than average for vdValk-hotels, but nevertheless a nice size and comfortable with a spacious fully equipped bathroom with both a walk-in rainshower and a large tub.
Our package included breakfast, which to my opinion was one of the best I ever experienced at vdValk-hotels. Diner was equally good at reasonable prices, Both hotel and restaurant service was impeccable, and left nothing to be desired.
When we booked this fair priced introductory package we were aware that neither the fitness, nor the wellness facilities would be open yet, so we can’t comment on those. In contrary with other recent 4* vdValk-hotels this property is not planning the addition of an indoor pool, which is somewhat disappointing for future visits.
On the second evening of our stay we took part in the typical weekend so-called “Live Cooking Event”, this was the best organized buffet we ever experienced on a landbased hotel. Keep up the good work guys!

Scores from 0 to 10:
- General impression: 10 (Beautiful new building)
- Overall cleanliness: 10 (Very good)
- Check-in process: 10 (Excellent & swift)
- Front desk staff: 10 (Excellent & friendly)
- Other staff: 10 (All very friendly)

- Room size: 09 (Ours was one of the smallest)
- Room decor: 10 (Very nice classic contempory mix)
- Room condition: 10 (New & excellent)
- Room cleanliness: 10 (Excellent)
- Room value/money: 10 (Good, but above vdValk-averages)

- Bed size: 10 (King, made of two singles, extra long)
- Bed linens: 08 (Standard white hotel linens)
- Bed comfort: 08 (Very good support, not hard)
- Bed condition: 10 (New)
- Bed cleanliness: 10 (Excellent)

- Breakfast room: 10 (Full service restaurant)
- Breakfast price: 10 (Complimentary for us, otherwise €13,50 p.p.)
- Breakfast items: 10 (Very extensive choice of items)
- Breakfast service: 10 (Buffet style, constantly replenished)
- Breakfast value/money: 10 (Complimentary for us, otherwise good value)

My personal opinion: Highly recommended hotel.
My overall satisfaction: 110%, am eager to return in the future.

How I rate…
- 5°°°°° Is only given to an excellent hotel/restaurant that has widely exceeded my expectations compared to its price or hotel category / brand, where staff & management go above and beyond the call of duty to provide their patrons an experience they will never forget.
- 4°°°° indicates a very good to excellent property that has provided me everything I was hoping for at the time of booking. Where staff & management make sure that patrons get their money’s worth.
- 3°°° is average to good, or something gave cause for minor disappointment.
- 2°° accommodation is far below my expectations and/or staff was rude.
- 1° STAY AWAY !!!

Hi all,

As a business traveler I really do love this hotel. It has great free wifi, you can reach it very easy and there is a lot of parking space if you would come by car. Furthermore the hotel is brand 'spanking' new with very spacious rooms, a large bathroom with big shower AND bath and on top of that a lovely balcony.

In the hotel there are different places where you can eat or enjoy a drink (lounge, outside lounge, café, bar, ...) and if you would like to visit the city center in the evening its just a 5 minute drive.

This was my first stay, and there is no doubt I will come back when i need to stay in the region.

I stayed for a couple of days in the area of Zwolle. This hotel is a few miles out of town just at one exit of the motorway, it looks brand new (in fact I was told that it was opened last year).
The personnel was friendly and very helpful at reception, and the room was spacious and modern. My room was on the side of the motorway but with the windows closed the noise was negligible. Breakfast is self service with a good choice. I tried the restaurant one evening and I found it a bit disappointing (impeccable service but uninspired food).
The price of the room is slightly on the high side but justified by the quality. Overall a very good experience.

Room Tip: If you like to sleep with the window open, ask for a room at the back (ie not on the motorway side).

From booking until check out everything went smooth and professional.
Despite the hotel being very new everything worked perfectly and all staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. The ladies at reception were nice and efficient.
The guy at the bar advised us on the beer and gave us a little taste of a special beer before ordering.
Rooms are very spacious and bathrooms are beautiful and functional.
Perfect free wifi connection in the room and throughout the entire hotel.
The breakfast buffet was great and offered everything in abundance.
Great location and easy to reach from the highway.

Definitely will go back to this hotel when in the area.

Travelling in Holland might be quite boring and exhausting because of the traffic jams etc. when you arrive to this hotel you can relax and recharge for next day. The room was big with all comforts. Ok the restaurant and on top of all the breakfast has a good and large choice too. Price is adequate and reasonable. Recommended.
