Fletcher Hotel-Restaurant Spaarnwoude
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Velsen-Zuid
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This is located in a quiet "recreational" area. There are some nice walks in the vicinity and quite a lot of leisure activities (e.g. indoor skiing, golf, canoing).

The bedrooms are of a reasonable size, but very cheaply furnished. The television is an old CRT screen, connected to an analogue signal. Only Dutch stations and most of these unwatchable due to the poor signal quality. But WiFi works well.

We had taken the dinner option, which is a a fixed three course menu, without choice. The main courses (steak on night, hake fillet the next) were fine, but the first courses (chicken salad one night, pasta salad the next) were unpleasant. Service was OK.

Breakfast buffet was very limited and the service chaotic. Everything, even the plates, ran out at one stage. Coffee and water for tea came in vacuum jugs, which isn't a good system.

The hotel advertises a wellness centre, but this wasn't satisfactory. The pool is OK, but both the steam room and infra-red sauna was broken. My wife had a massage, but they didn't have a proper massage table (with a hole for you face) so found the experience uncomfortable. The sauna area is bit scruffy and run down.

In general this hotel really needs a face lift. It is a shame as the location and facailities could make it a good hotel.

I had room 35, the only suite (actually junior suite). Quite large room with 3 grey chairs, TV (only Dutch channels and Eurosport in German). Very quietly situated with a small room with cleaning stuff between room 35 and 34. Little balcony with view over a canal. Sober decoration (2 paintings, 3 vases with plastic flowers, grey carpet) but quite clean room. Large bathroom with a large jacuzzi in corner. Jacuzzi with outlets on the side, not in the bottom. Handheld shower.
There's a swimming pool but on weekdays used by schools and other groups so only useable early morning and late evening then.
Had no breakfast or diner so can't judge that.
Very quiet hotel (apart from some children and a dog (dogs are allowed), so good for rest-seekers.
Hotel is located at end of the Zijkanaal B. By bus 82 from Amsterdam Sloterdijk, 20 minutes. Bus stop "Zijkanaal B", then walking to the left of the canal, passing a restaurant/B&B.
Nice walk on a dike. Road for cars next to it.
Hotel is in a large recreation area, with many things to do in summer.
Not so attractive area in winter.
Nice personell.
Bed is soft, but pillows a bit small. Empty minibar but you can put own things in it.
All rooms are on first floor with balconies (not sure if all have that).
Elevator present. Very large lobby.

Room Tip: Get the one suite (room 35) if you can. Quitest and spaciest, with jacuzzi.

We went to this hotel for one day and night. Ans because of our dog, he is welcom too. We came a little early and got a cup of coffee from the house and because of my wife's birthday. At 3.00 pm the room wasn't ready so we got an other one. Nice and big. Clean. It was a little hot and there was no airco! But you could open the door to the balcony. We had to park the car far away from the hotel and there were camera's to watch!! The diner was ok but the breakfast was not that good and less than other hotels from the Fletcher company. We won't recommend it to others. It's good for conferences and meetings, but not to stay for a night.

Room Tip: The room we had, nr. 26, was very good.

Very bad, dirty carpet all around the place. The standard room we had booked was small, two separate beds instead of one bed as shown on the website. The carpet was dirty, there was no safe, no airconditioning, it was bloody hot, the window could only open for a few centimeters, the room was next to the kitchen and there was not enough light in the bathroom. Then we got the luxury room, which was a bit better, but definitely not worth the price. Staff was complaining about the owner who apparently doesn't want to invest anymore in the resort. In the breakfast room there was not enough cutlery, no cleaning. Not to recommend at all!
