“A welcoming hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

The hotel played host to myself and 45 pupils from my school for a 5 day football tour to Holland. Even though they had a large number of teenagers in the hotel they were very welcoming, understanding and accomodating. The pupils behaved fantastically, respecting the rooms and the staff as they in turn were shown a very good level of service. The rooms were basic, but at the same point they were perfect for what was needed.

When we arrived and a number of rooms had bunk beds, no suitable for older teenagers and so this was changed where possible and for this years bookling and promise of no more bunk beds. The food was fantastic and what seemed to be endless. With 45 kids who are virtually playing non stop football they need plenty of food and this was provided. Overall for what was needed it is a very good hotel. I possibly wouldnt recommend it for a quiet get away as it regularly hosts large parties.

Room Tip: Fantastic town but avoid Half Term and Easter holidays and regularly used by school parties.

Stayed at this hotel for a second New Year visit and once again thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Hotel has a lovely atmosphere with cosy and comfortable facilities. Entertainment on New Year's eve was especially good and food throughout excellent. The spread on New Year's day is a sight to behold and consume. We hope the owners keep up the good work and continue to provide excellent entertainment at this special time of year.

we went on a coach trip from scotland for new year. We had a brilliant time although it was not long enough. hotel was really nice although the rooms were a bit dark and brown. Food was plentiful and varied. New year was terriffic. KLovely dinner followed by snacks and champagne. Only 3 staff serving drinks, clearing up etc. for about 4 coaches of people plus other guests. Very hard working. Good fun too. Watch the drinks - you get 30 tokens for 18 euros. That only buys 3 large beers and 1 coke!! expensive. Happy hour helps slightly. Watch out too different staff sometimes charge different amounts of tokens - we stood our ground and just paid the same amount. We went into Valkenburg and went round the caves very interesting. Guide spoke Dutch but luckily we had an American who spoke Dutch so he translated it for us. Enjoyed lunch and wandering round the tourist shops. Would go back. Only thing I would suggest is take your own toilet paper as hotels is awful! Sorry to be a bit personal. New years day included loads and loads of cream cakes, ice creams and chocolate fountains! Wow what a selection!! the best bit was we celebrated new year at midnight and an hour later it was midnight in Scotland so had to celebrate it AGAIN - brilliant.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights as part of a sports tour. The only good thing I could say was that the food was good and plentiful, albeit plain.
The room was small, handles missing from cupboards and the bathroom was tatty.
It is in a good location and the outside patio is excellent. The hotel is tired and badly in need of refurbishment. The staff were not at all friendly and seemed to not like the fact that we had teenagers with us. There is never anyone in the bar unless late in the evening and evrrytime you wanted a drink or a coffee you had to go and find someone at reception. There was no tea or coffee available after meals - you had to buy them as extras at the bar. There was no tea or coffee in the rooms. The token system is a joke.. drinks are a rip off - dearer than London or paris.
Avoid this hotel

Service on the whole was pretty good - perhaps replacement trays of food to bain maries could have had better attention. Drinks seemed rather expensive using tokens purchased. Beds were very comfortable and room clean. Stay was only for three nights but had it been longer and with nightly entertainment music noise levels might have prevented one from getting to sleep if room was on first floor just above band area. Location perfect -near to station for anyone wanting to use trains to reach other desdtinations.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while visiting the Christmas Markets.The food was good and the roms were very comfortable. The problem is the Bar 1) The staff are expected to multi-task, working the bar and at the same time cover drinks in the Dining Room and clear tables.This causes slow service. 2 ) The main problem is that the bar will only take tokens. These are sold at Reception £18 for 30 tokens( 1token=60p).The Bar has an Happy Hour ,with drinks at half-price. A Beer 6 tokens and a Rum/coke 6.
Cost of each £3.60. Normal rates Beer 11 tokens Rum/Coke 11 (£6.60 a drink). A Rum on its own is 6,and a Coke 4 (£2.4 ). The problem with the Coke/Pepsi come from a :arge 2.5 litre bottle and can be rather flat. Prices seem to change depending on the member of Staff and the look of your face. A well presented Price List would be most welcome.Maybe take your own drinks is worth considering.

This hotel is a real gem. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable, the food was always fresh and if you had any special requests it was never too much trouble to the kitchen, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. If your looking for a bit of a giggle Lucas the bar man is the man to go to! He had a different hat for every song that played in the bar but at the same time was very efficient at his job!
The outdoor seating area is also lovely and by the looks of part of the dinning room i think they may be refurbing the hotel. Not that theres anything wrong with it!
The only little grumble i have is that you have to pay for all your drinks with tokens, which always made me wonder if we where actually paying the right price for our drinks.
Other than that it was perfect and i would return there tomorrow if i could!
