We stayed in the hotel in August as we were meeting friends who were staying at duinrell park. The hotel was fairly easy to get to from voorschoten station, it was a bit of a walk though, 20 mins the first walk as we werent too sure where it was. We were checked in very efficiently and the receptionist was very helpful when we asked how to get to duinrell.(Theres bus stops right outside the hotel that go to leiden and den haag) We'd booked a comfort deluxe with bath, room (through booking.com) and it was exactly how it looked in the pictures, although we were a bit dissapointed that the room didn't have a balcony (1st and 2nd floors only have balconies) but the room was clean the bathroom was lovely and the decor of the room was great. The bed was a little uncomfortable as it was 2 single beds pushed together(the booking said the room came with 1 double bed) but this seems to be the norm with hotels in holland. The hotel has a well known resturant and it seems people come from all over to use it as the big car park did fill up around dinner time. We didn't use it unfortunately as there seemed to be a lot of older people using the resturant and in fact the hotel, so we went to Leiden to eat both nights. Both nights sleeps were interrupted quite early in the morning as there seemed to be a distribution warehouse in the hotel grounds which happened to be outside our room and my partner got woken up both mornings by trucks coming in, palettes reversing and general loud chattering. The nice thing is in the fields they have a sort of animal sanctuary and we were really suprised to see kangaroos, Ostrich's, and deer amongst the chickens, sheep, ducks and lambs.lovely for the kids to see. One other negative is the entrance to the block where are room was, smelt very badly, like mould, the carpets could benefit a very good clean. All in all this hotel is very good value for money, we paid €99 for 2 nights, excellent public transport near the hotel that takes you basically everywhere. If your looking for value for money outside the city then this is an ideal hotel.
