“Great friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

I recently stayed at hotel Riche for two nights with my wife and two children. It was the perfect base from which to explore the region. With an early breakfast provided we had plenty of time to see the local attractions. We ate at the hotel restaurant on one of the nights and found the food to be delicious and service to be excellent. The staff were also very accommodating to us and our 10 month old baby throughout our stay. There was free wifi at the hotel and our room was spacious. Its quite an old building but very clean. It was right in the center of town but very quite and they had plenty of private parking right next the hotel. It was our first time in the area but we ended up having a hassle-free, relaxing weekend. To wrap up with an inside joke, we love Hotel Riche :)

Visited Valkenberg with Edwards coach company last weekend. Hotel situated ideally for town centre and the caves that are filled with Christmas shops at this time of year. Family run hotel that is warm and friendly. Breakfast excellent, dinner with a choice of 2 three course meals, one fish and one meat main. Our room was ideal for 2, the walls were a bit thin so you could hear others but only needed it for sleeping in. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would be very happy to go again. In fact we intend to.

Stayed here during a busy world championship cycling race weekend. This is an older property at the base of the Valkenburg Castle ruins and near the old central town. Easy access to restaurants and shops. Small, friendly town in Limburg region. US Military Cemetery at Margraten is 6 KMs away. The staff was excellent. All spoke English well and were friendly & professional. Parking was 6.50 Euros a day. Nice bar and restaurant on premise with prix fix menu for dinner; ample portions. The rooms are very small- pretty much a bed with two end tables and small "desk" and wardrobe. Hard for two people to move around it. The bed was a queen sized and comfortable. Bathrooms are clean and modernized but small. Rooms were non-smoking, a plus in a smoker heavy region of Europe. I would have rated this place higher if the rooms were a bit larger and modern. Don't bring in a lot of luggage or you will not be able to move about. Otherwise, it was a charming place to stay. Breakfast included.

Room Tip: Try to get in the house front

Nice family runned hotel. Good location and clean rooms yes maybe a little small but you're out all day. Breakfast was excellent and people don't forget dutch people don't eat potatoes and stuff at their breakfast. Dinner was a set menu and good. I talked to several people and the fact is that what they serve is the coach company decision. They pay the hotel!!! When you go out the centre is right there and the hotel has a really nice bar with good prices!! To make a long story short a real good city hotel and we will come back!!! + free wifi!!!

Not long returned from this trip, hotel was quite basic, lots of odd steps here and there, staff were quite friendly. Meals rather limited and basic. Breakfast was cornflakes, cold boiled eggs, warmish scrambled eggs and the usual meat, cheese and a few other bits. It was tough if you didnt like the evening meal, hubby does not eat fish so there was only one option for his main meal and one night was pork which he cannot eat and there was no alternative. We wanted to use the terrace when it was sunny but we were told it was closed. Not up to a 4 star but on the whole not too bad. Valkenburg is a nice place, we have been here before for the Christmas markets so it seemed a little dull for us. On our free day we took the train to Maastricht, only 10-15 minutes stroll to the station and then a 10 minute journey on the train, a very enjoyable trip. Beware you need the correct change to buy a ticket, 5.80 euros as this is not a manned station and you cannot use your debit card. Foraide is quite spread out so you need to have comfortable shoes on. We had a good day there but it is a lot of walking between the different parts which would be a lot different if the weather was bad. Also quite a walk from the coach to the entrance.

We recently returned from a holiday to Valkenburg and Floriade, with Shearings. We were based in Valkenburg and stayed in the Hotel Riche. The location itself was brilliant and there was no problem walking into the centre, which took about 10 minutes easy strolling and has lots of shops and restaurants. The Hotel itself is quite adequate and the staff are really friendly. Tina is exceptional and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was clean, the beds really comfy, however the wardrobe space was limited to say the least, with one tiny cupboard and no drawer space. It just meant, that we did'nt unpack fully. We were also on the front of the hotel, which did inccur quite a lot of trafic noise, as we always sleep with the window open. I believe the rooms at the rear overlook a little patio area and are a lot quieter. Breakfast was quite adequate, but a little limited with cereals and brown or white bread rolls. There were also hard boiled eggs, but no toaster! I think we had been spoiled on previous Shearings holidays with fresh orange juice and fresh fruit salad. It did appear that this was tinned fruit and powdered orange, but acceptable. The evening meal was again alright, but a little canteenish, though we never left the table hungry, On our free day in Valkenburg, we toured the castle ruins. Although there was not much left of the actual castle, it was still very interesting and the view from the top was brilliant. We also toured the underground caves, which I believe hold the Christmas markets. We chose the train, which took about 20 minutes through the caves. It was definately the best way to tour, but the dialogue was only in Dutch. We were issued with an information sheet in English, but it was very limited. There is so much history in the caves, that I would definately recommend reading up about them, prior to the tour. If visiting Floriade, you definately need good walking shoes. There is a considerable treck from the coach, to the actual entrance. Once inside, it is split into different themes and involves a lot of walking. We chose to take the cable car over to the far side and then make our way back towards the entrance, which we felt worked well. The wheather was fab and we thouroughly enjoyed it, but for some reason the concert was cancelled on that day. On the whole though, another Shearings very enjoyable trip and we would love to return in the Winter months.
