“Big hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed here in july for two nights with my mother and an aunt the hotel is huge and you need a map to find your room, room is excellent, nice bathroom comfy bed , flat screen t.v. And balcony.
Breakfast is excellent something for everyone, but as my mother and aunt are in there 80's the walk to the room was a bit much, min point is the service in the outdoor resturant surly staff and long waits for the food but they cleared the table before we had finished our meal. Meals quite expensive and you recieve the same amount of chips and veg if there is two of you or four.
Ideal location for sightseeing , parking very good, would not visit again because of the size of the hotel.

Room Tip: Do not visit if you are elderly.

While the location is nice for touring adjacent sites the facility is poor. Through the thin walls I could hear the conversation ,coughing and snoring of the next door guests. It also is a large hotel with an indoor pool making it a destination for families and/or parties like weddings. Our deck was littered -complete with used/dirty ashtray and the half glass partitions render it unusable for non smokers. Housekeeping left the used paper coffee cups as well as the half used coffee
supplies Long lines at reception with undereducated staff make the slightest question intolerable. Stay if one must or drive a little father into Alkmaar for more sophisticated lodging

Caveat: read my other reviews - I often (more than 80% of the time) give 4-5 star ratings. So, why a TWO? First Impressions: Long slooooow line at reception. Receptionists unclear on the concept of service. Poor employee training. Second impression: After totally unhelpful & vague directions to our room ("it's around the back in the second building") we walked into a musty dank room with multiple carpet stains and a rumpled bed. Good: The room was large, but dated. 1970esque. Less good: One towel per person. No washcloths. The covers don't fit the bed. Dirty windows. 3 pillows for a king sized bed. Cigarette burns on the chairs. 4 hangers in the closet (really? FOUR?). Ah, well, it's the only game in town, but those who give it a 4-5 rating are smokin' something. And don't get me started about the restaurant. Less than good institutional food and unclear-on-the-concept of service.... ) I actually called the front desk and asked to speak with the manager. They informed me that "Mr Van Der Valk" was the manager, "but he wasn't in." When will he be in, I inquired? "I don't know his schedule, sir." Well,when is he usually in on weekdays? "He comes and goes, sir" Does Mr Van Der Valk have a voice mail? "I am sorry, sir, no, he does not." Well, who is the acting hotel manager now? "I"m sorry, we have many managers, what is your concern?" The "customer prevention department" was alive and well here! And on it went....

Room Tip: Stay at better accommodations in Almkar.

I stayed here on mulitple occasions, and have never been deceived. Spacious rooms, large bathroom, good restaurant, friendly staff.
The only negative is the poor sound isolation. You have to hope that you have no noisy neighbours, or party people in the corridors.

Stayed in Deluxe room with good bed and nice large shower. Flat TV screen and free wifi.
Service was ok and staff friendly, but i got the feeling that they could be more attentive to the customers.

Breakfast had a good choice and good quality.

For business this is a good place to stay, very convenient next to the highway. .

We stayed here over New Year,( not the first time.) Our rooms were very comfortable and clean. Dinner was delicious and the staff very friendly and patient even though they were to close early that evening. The bar was open till late and their was a good party feeling. A glass of champagne from the hotel at midnight but no fireworks as in other years. We will certainly return.

The Hotel offers a pleasant stay for business: rooms very large and confortable, front desk assistance very efficient, breakfast with very large choice and quality. Also the restaurant is good. In my opinion the restaurant should be improved with more typical Dutch plates. Food is good but it list is composed mainly by international plates.
Beautiful swimming pool if you have 1-2 hours free.
Only wek point of the hotel is the position, a little bit far from towns
