“Quiet old style hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The Parkhotel is situated a few hundred meters from Valkenburg's center, so it is quiet but you can walk to the old town in minutes. The hotel is large and has an old feel. However the rooms have been renovated and look modern. The standard is not really op to 4 stars, though and decoration is a bit bare. There is plenty of food for breakfast at the buffet. You have to pay for parking, which is a bit surprising, There is also a sauna and swimming pool but we did not have a chance to visit it.

I have been coming to this hotel for more than 10 years. In that time it has evolved from being an historic (its more than 100 years old) but somewhat run-down family affair to a friendly, if still quirky, modernized hotel. The process is still underway and you may share the dining room with a crew of painters! New rooms have been added and these are very clean and comfortable, if a little small. Most of the older rooms, which are large with high ceilings, have been modernized, although some of the changes -- electonically controlled showers in the bathrooms, for instance -- are just annoying. Service is good and friendly, the breakfast is excellent. Location is a little out of the center of town, but the leafy surroundings are very pleasant. Value for money has gone down as prices have risen over time with the modernization. Still, its a grand old place for a peaceful stay.

I was very dissapointed by the service in the hotel, The room are not comfortable even though they have just been renewed, they have nothing more than very basics, no safe, fridge, table or a kettle. The service was very slow; We ordered a taxi for 3 days, not a word was said to the driver about our destination, and everyday, it was a different scenario to explain to the driver our destination as my husban d and \i dont speak Dutch. In short, you feel you are in no man's land. I am surprised it is rated as a four star.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th seem to be better

Arrived at the hotel late friday evening for two nights and yes it looks quite nice from outside. When you step inside the hotel it does look tired and dirty but that is because they are having a refurbishment in the hotel so the public areas are not that clean, but then we started to think what have we come to. We got our key card from check in, reception staff very nice and welcomming. We started walking through the hotel and there was dust and wood on the floors it didnt look good. We got to our room on the top floor we had a suite, opened the door and the only way to describe the room is WOW the refurbishment is amazing, the room was so big, the bathroom amazing just everything you need to make you stay enjoyable and relaxing. The one bad thing about the room is that the beds are two singles but comfortable to say the least. We had breakfast both days again which was faboulous and dinner one night which was to say the least amazing for the money. All staff are so polite just wish all hotels employed staff like this. All in all a very nice stay at the hotel just a shame about the building work but cant really complain never actually heard any noise. I would definatley want to return to the hotel later this year early next year as i think it will be the best hotel in valkenburg once all the refurbishment is done I just beleive it will be amazing. Just if you are planning to go soon look past the building work and see the amazing work they are doing to the hotel. I Just hope they dont raise the prices of the rooms/ suites when the hotel is done cos i really want to go back.

I stay here because a convention I attend takes place here. The location is quite good with the restaurant giving excellent views of the town. The breakfast selection and the room is quite nice. There is also a terrace outside with seating. Rooms are dated but with high ceilings and with charm and character. I got excellent room rates but this was because of group rates for the convention. The staff was very helpful as when the modem on my laptop refused to work, they let me use their reception computer for internet.

This is by far and away the weirdest hotel I have ever stayed in. Don't let that put you off, but don't expect a lot for what you could pay to stay here.

I went with my wife and two kids in December to see the Christmas Markets and Valkenburg itself. Think we paid around E400 for two nights in a family room.

Good points - The hotel is within walking distance of Valkenburg centre, 5 mins max. The reception area was very nice but the staff on reception were okay but not overly friendly. The room we had was big to say the least, the kids had bunk beds and a single the other two rooms had two single beds. The room was spotless, plenty of toiletries, loads of nice clean towels.. The swimming pool and spa is very nice and obviously recently renovated. Good buffet breakfast in the massive dining hall.

Bad points - The hotel itself is in desperate need of renovation, as per the previous reviews it is very dated. I think that one floor has been done but I cannot confirm this. The facilities in our room were poor, tele out of the 70's, broken remote, no sky channels, no lock on bathroom door, no shower curtain at all (it wasn't missing it had just never been there), no tea or coffee making facilities. Staff in the bar, which is tiny, were grumpy and un friendly. The snack menu is all in dutch, when I asked the barman what the food was he said, "junk food sir."!!! Anyway I ordered something and it was very nice...porkballs. I would expect that the food in the restaurant on a night is nice but we didn't eat there.

All in all this hotel reminds me of a cross between The Overlook Hotel (from The Shining) and Fawlty Towers!!!!! It's just a really strange place after staying in the likes of a Radisson or Marriott this place will feel really different to you. I looked at a lot of hotels in Valkenburg and this was one of the best I could find.

I would stay here again because it's right next to Valkenburg centre and Valkenburg at Christmas time is magical. You won't find a better place in Europe at Christmas. The markets in the cave are fantastic, and Maastricht Christmas market (ten mins drive away) is excellent.
