I had the pleasure to stay in a suite in this hotel. Well it was awesome. everything in the room was right. Nice tv, good sound installation, perfect bed and bathroom was spotless and it was a pleasure to stay a long time in the bubble bath. I have absolutely no complaint about this hotel whatsoever. Maybe that it's crowded....

When you speak of a luxe room one does expect that the bubble bath is working. Same goes for the water heater, which was also not working at all. This must explain the amount of dust gathered on the plate where it stands on. And an empty minibar, really? Only an ad for a minibar package, where it is not...

Nice big room and all the standard amenities u expect in the Valk. Breakfast was good particularly as there were gluten free options on offer without needing to ask. Meetings area at the front is brightly lit but tables close together so can be overheard.

This hotel has all the requirements for a first class hotel. The rooms are large and well appointed; the bathrooms have a separate shower and whirlpool bath. Try and get a room at the front of the hotel the view is much better than the back. The restaurant is really first class, the menu has a very good selection of...
