“New Year in the South of Holland!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We booked a two night new year package and decided to stay a further night. The hotel itself is situated within walking distance to the village and sits up on a hill (unusual for Holland!!!). We had a room on floor 3 which was lovely. Included in the deal was dinner and the food was beautiful. One thing I would recommend is to ask for a specific table as on our first night we were placed at the door to the restaurant. When we asked to be moved, we were told that we could not. Our waitress said that the manager had said no but did nothing to appease us as customers. He in fact ignored us for the rest of the night, attending to every table except ours. I found this quite disappointing especially since there were two tables which were unused while we were there. The following morning, the restaurant manager did approach my partner and asked which table we wanted for dinner that night but did not apologise for the previous night. Despite this, breakfast and dinner were very nice, lots of choices at breakfast and a set menu for dinner but top quality. The hotel has leisure facilities (pool, sauna etc) which were great although the steam room was never working. It was a great way to relax with the pool on one level and the sauna on another. Be warned though, the dutch like to go naked in the sauna!!!

Room Tip: Ask to pick a table if you are staying for dinner and take your swimming gear but remember that the...

My previous two trips to Valkenburg were marred by poor hotel experiences – the hotel rooms were outdated, poorly ventilated, beds were uncomfortable, and overall in need of a total refreshing. But the third visit was a charm – the Park Hotel has it all: nice restaurant, good parking area next to the hotel, great beds, nice indoor pool & fitness area, and an overall quiet location that resulted in my best stay yet in Valkenburg. The hotel is only a 5-10 minute walk from the center of town and the historic sites - making restaurants easily accessible and eliminating the need to drive & find parking elsewhere. Hotel rates were reasonable and included an extensive breakfast buffet. Will definitely use this hotel the next time I visit Valkenburg.

Room Tip: If you smoke, book a room with a balcony.

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.
