“Excellent Hotel, Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stayed for 1 night in April 2013 as a place to rest in betweek business visits to 2 locations in The Netherlands. Had a standard room. It was clean and tidy, had a generously sized bathroom and a comfortable large bed. The view wasn't anything to write home about, it over looked what must have been a staff/suppliers entrance.
Outside of the room was nothing short of luxury. The reception foyer was excellently fitted, and it carried through into the bar and restaurant. Had a few drinks in the bar, it was well stocked with a wide range of choice. Ate in the restaurant and was very impressed with the meal. The quality was of a high standard.
The breakfast in the morning was a nice touch also, plenty fresh fruits, meats and cheeses. The pastries selection was just as good and the coffee machine serves great full flavoured drinks.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Stayed for 2 nights January 2013.

Got a room upgrade to a deluxe standard, which was nice, and was recently refurbished.

The bathroom is excellent. There are no drawers anywhere in the room but there is sufficient wardrobe space with shelving, a free safe (with a socket inside - great for charging iPads etc whilst out), a fridge that you could store your own (small) bottles in (water or cheese for example).

The pillows are very soft and although we asked for firm pillows at reception none ever came.

We ate in the restaurant for our friends birthday, and the food was very good, although they also provide large main course accompaniments which were too much food for us.

Breakfast is good, all the hot food was kept at a good temperature, and plenty of choice.

The bar is nice (and has a large area for smokers which is inside) and prices were OK not too expensive.

We had a good time and would happily visit this hotel (or others in the Group) again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Spent a week in a standard De Luxe room during the holiday season. Room was style fully and modern decorated. Beautiful bathroom. At arrival it seems that the area was freshly painted. Smell of paint was irritating and uncomfortable. Not to much cabinet space if you stay for a week. Internet connection in the room hardly worked.
Staff was young and less experienced, but attentive and friendly. Restaurants were nice decorated for X-mas, food selection and quality good (typically Van der Valk selection).
Hotel was simply too crowded and noisy. Lot of families and people at the restaurant during breakfast and diner. In the middle of the night lot of noise by people on the hallway or outside.
Price is good. Location of the hotel is good.

The hotel is ideally located close to the motorway and only a short drive to Ijmuiden for the ferry. It is a very large hotel and has plenty of parking. On the Sunday we were there it was very busy with what seemed to be local families having lunch or dinner. In saying that we had no problem getting a table for dinner which was excellent with large portions. Breakfast also had a good choice. The bedroom and bathroom were very large, modern, well furnished and clean. Excellent English spoken by all staff.

Good value for money, clean and rooms are quite big. Be carefull on which rooms they give you, as some are just overlooking the highway. The ones on the back or the inside are REALLY quiet. Nice swimming pool and good restaurant

The full ashtray in the balcony,was not clean from the check-in day to the last day.
jointed twin beds instead of double bed
excellent breakfast (no herrings ;-(

Where some of the hotels belonging to this chain really are up to current standards this one unfortunately outdated and not recommended. The rooms are clean but old fashioned and out of style. The rooms do not give any feeling of comfort and fail to make you feel at home. The hotel is big and it is hard to find your way. You really can get lost. The restaurant however is not bad and is the reason I rate the hotel as I do. Staff is friendly and at your service. The location of the hotel is ok. Close to the beaches and it is a good base when you want to go sight seeing in the really beautiful region north of Amsterdam. But there are more hotels in the region and it is recommended to put them above this one. Unless price is your most important criteria. Then you will be pleased with this hotel.
