We had the Theatre suite in the hotel. Food (buffet and breakfast) was great, and personal was very friendly, but the room was tired (ripped carpets, a shower/bath combination that doesn't deserve inclusion in a 'suite' experience, a bar that had its best time, a tv that didn't work well (although a friendly lady from the hotel did come quickly...

I visited here with my family and it was honestly one of the best holidays ever. The hotel was nice, no complaints. As we spent most of the day in the park I have the most to say about that. The Paarl is suitable for everyone, from little children and play areas, and thrill seekers and the loop the loop.... More

A few days before we arrived, I received a phone call from the hotel offering us a free upgrade to one of the suites on the top floor. We accepted without hesitation and loved the novelty of having a revolving bed and a whirlpool bath in our room. We only stayed for one night but enjoyed access to the park... More

Had the most amazing two nights in the Carousel Suite for my sisters 21st! Spent the two days reliving our childhood and loved the additional extras the hotel provided. Our purchases of souvenirs were delivered straight to the hotel for us, free postcard to send home, sweets in the room along with early entrance to the park and use of... More

My partner and I came here for his birthday and it's a place I went to very often as a child so it was really nice to come back after 18+ years. We stayed one night in the Excellente Suite at the very top of one of the turrets but let me tell you, it was hands down the best... More

It was our first time staying at the hotel although we had visited the park on a numerous occasions so I didn't really know what to expect. All 4 days we stayed there we felt that we were living in a fairytale! The room was clean and spacious and had small details which the kids just loved! Although the hotel... More

What a fantastic hotel. On arrival we were given an upgrade to the cinderella suite and this topped off a fantastic 3 day break at a lovely hotel. Staff were excellent, nothing is too much trouble they simply can not help you enough. Every step has a child in mind. My little girl was so excited each morning after breakfast... More

Booked the Efteling Hotel for my wedding anniversary. The hotel in general seemed run down and really needed some TLC. 4 Stars with a charge of 250euro a night, I'm sorry to say it was not worth the money. The bed was comfortable but the bathroom seemed dated and cramped. The dining room was also not so exciting with really... More

I actually stayed in June 2015 with my 5 and 6 year old kids and my dad. We stayed in the carousel room and whilst it was expensive it was fantastic and the most memorable hotel I've ever stayed in! It included a 2 day pass to the Efteling. The kids loved exploring the room, and the lollies. We also... More

I had to write a quick review about Efteling Hotel. Myself and my family (wife and two kids) had an amazing stay. The hotel is the 'destination' hotel for those going to spend time in Efteling Park- a beautiful, magical theme park that defies normal description and virtually unknown in Ireland (where I am from). We stayed in the hotel... More
