This one is always good. Must have a car, though, or look for other ways to get to Utrecht. Spacious rooms with killer views, richly outfitted - beds are huge. Clean, quiet. Large parking. Breakfast at 16 EUR too expensive to even try, but you can fix your own tea or coffee in the room itself. Bathroom - the shower... More

I was here for a business trip and can highly recommend to stay here to everyone. The hotel is nice, rooms are huge and including a whirlpool. The staff is friendly. In addition, the restaurant is excellent both for breakfast and dinner. Really enjoyed my stay here.

Easy to find (a landmark in this flat country) Friendly staff, clean, spatious rooms, good shower, perfect breakfast (with custom made omelets). The restaurant is a bit big and unpersonal, but the bar makes up for that. What more do you need?

No longer is van der valk known for their cherry on the apple sauce but also a good place for a decent meal! Only downside for me is that it is a big restaurant not very intimate, very friendly staff, quick and tasty food, go to place for a quick proper meal

I visited the hotel as part of a conference. Never sure what you will get with these things. Hotel Houten was a nice surprise. The rooms were spacious, clean and well maintained. The hotel has a large restaurant with an extensive menu. Also a good sized lounge. The restaurant and lounge are important as you are not really near anything.... More

I stayed for a week for a business trip and enjoyed my stay. There's pretty much nothing but a gas station next to the hotel but the restaurant is amazing so no need to go anywhere else for dinner. The buffet breakfast was really great as well. The room was very large, clean, and bed was comfortable. My room had... More

Very large comfortable rooms with big beds, good Wifi and large screen TV sets. Food could be better but otherwise a fine corporate hotel. Much much better than your typical chain hotel. I've had breakfast there a number of times and it's worth pre-booking unless you have a car as there are few options nearby.

Having attended the golf tournament THE DUTCH on Saturday we had booked a table for our dinner at the VanderValk in Houten. Glad we booked in advance since they were fully booked.
