“Quite a surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 days whilst attending a wedding in Hengelo. This hotel was superb and much bigger than the picture shows! Staff were friendly and very helpful - giving us our room a good few hours before check in time. The room was large, well appointed with a lovely balcony and view of the gardens. Breakfast buffet is not to be missed ! Amazing service and choice. Bar prices were reasonable and the choice of sandwiches, snacks was good. Would recommend this hotel and will def stay again.

The hotel is more like a resort. The rooms are excellent and very spacious. But the only thing is that you have to walk a lot and open too many doors before you reach your room. The breakfast is excellent with a lot of options. The room service is quick and responsive. The parking space available in hotel is very good.

Room Tip: Please ask for a room which is near to the reception.

Just a good hotel with almost everything you may need during business trips or getaway hangovers in the neighborhood of Hengelo, Almelo and Enschede. And with excellent bar and the restaurant on board.
Rooms are large and spacious, clean and generally comfortable - Dutch hotel quality is at the highest levels. Wi-fi is fast and unlimited - we had a video conf once when it was hardly raining outside preventing us from going outside. Breakfast is just good and the only thing prevents you from eating it all is self-suggestion that you should not be eating that much. Fitness is okay, however most joggers were outside (when it was not raining).
Evening time is pleasantly spent in the bar at the hotel.
Regarding the holidays - you surely need to have a solid reason for selecting the surroundings as your holiday destination, but if it happened, you may find that the weekend prices are worth paying at this hotel.
We did not choose the shuttle, but the taxi ride from Hengelo station is 12 euro per car.
Hopefully will visit this nice hotel more and more times.

Room Tip: Most rooms are located in the added buildings but that is not disturbing, you just need to find your...

The highlight our time in this hotel is the service in the bar. The barman is friendly and attentive, plays a great selection of easy listening music, everything is clean and tidy, and above all he makes guests feel welcome to Twente. Meals are ok, just what you'd expect. It's the quality of the service that makes return visits worthwhile.

There is very little I can add to the good reviews in Tripadvisor. I have stayed in the van der Valk Hotel during 3 - 4 annual trips. My experience is very positive. I agree that the rooms are really excellent and clean. The restaurant offers a good breakfast and the place is perfect to invite your friends or business contacts to enjoy lunch or dinner. I will stay another 2 - 3 nights next year.
Indeed, the WiFI is less than perfect.

Room Tip: The most quiet rooms are on the second floor, away from the highway.

As with all hotels from this chain you know what you get: Big and nice rooms together with great breakfast offer and if you don't want to go out and eat dinner there is an above average menu to choose from. And it's priced OK.
This Hengelo facility is not different, it's good. The only thing I miss in general is a bit personality...both from staff and the hotel as such.

It's a good hotel. Clean, spacious rooms,bathroom. Very good breakfast. Good as well for lunch and dinner (reccomend to try special Dunkel beer - double and/or tripple). Huge free parking.
As a minus - located near motorway,so better ask for the room looking the yard.
Reception is attentive. But, they grab a deposit of 200 euro per day in advance with ccard!
Limited internet accees (2 hrs only free,relativly slow)
I reccomend this hotel for business travelers.

Room Tip: ask for the room overlooking the yard, not the motorway
