“Nice stay!”
Reviewed November 14, 2010

We stayed at Hotel Waalwijk because we had planned to go to Efteling amusement park. And it was a good choice. The hotel is located very close to the center and shopping areas. We just walked and reached it within a while.

We liked the hotel atmosphere. There was simple but interesting by all kind of great painting. We were not so satified with employees because they were not so service-minded and also not helpful. A housekeeper didn't shut the door of our room. It's quite pity for us.

Breakfast was great. Free parking is very useful. Flat screen TV was terrific. Unluckily, beds were dusty. We could say that the room and bathroom were good size, not too big, not too small.

We would stay there again because of the location.

We booked here as they had family rooms that took 5 people - this naturally kept the costs down - the price per night was 117 euros for the room including a hearty breakfast - great value for the 5 of us

Finding the hotel was easy with the sat nav but it it did require a u-turn and a side street but we got there in the end - plenty of parking too.

The entrance lobby was modern and clean, staff were warm and welcoming.

Our room was up 2 flights of stairs and it seemed like the one and only lift serviced the main block rather than our block - given that the family rooms were all in the block without the lift this could cause problems for families with young children given the amount of stuff that also has to be carried up the stairs.

One thing that stuck me was how low the banister rails were around the stairs, being from a health and safety mad country it was something that raised an eyebrow with me.

The room was large, it had 3 single beds and one double - given this it is always going to look a bit like a dorm - it had a large bathroom with shower and seperate bath, it was big and clean but was dated with it's 1970's plastic accessories, there was plenty of hot water which was a tad yellow at times. There was also plenty of storage space.

The room felt a little barren as there was a lack of decor. The beds were comfortable and the windows had black out blinds/curtains, the heating was not on which was a bit of a godsend given that one of the beds was right up against the raidiator.

We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel, breakfast was typically Dutch with pastries, breads, meats and cheese - it was generally good. The evening meals were lovely and the set meal was good value at 16 euros for a 3 course, the children's meals were set at 10 euros and this was for 3 courses too, the starters and desserts were fab but the main children's meal was not that exciting or healthy. The restaurant staff were good and friendly, a little slow at times but there was no rush.

The hotel location is ideal for Efterling theme park, it was approx 3 miles away and easliy found.

The hotel is from the 1970's and it does retain that style in some parts of the building.

I had read that the TV channels did not stop you surfing past adult channels, this was a concern of mine given that we had our young children with us but we did not have any such issues.

This certainly is not a 4 start hotel but it's a fair 3 star, it is good value for money especially if there are 5 of you in a room, it is also hard to find hotels that have quin rooms so this is an added bonus. The location is ideal for Efterling and the food was good, I would stay here again when visiting Efterling, however, I would be concerned about staying here in the summer as there was no air con but the windows did open wide so there may not be such an issue in the larger rooms

We stayed for two nights at Hotel Waalwijk. We had a great time.
The hotel is oke but not a 4 star hotel!! You can already see that from the outsight.. Lobby en restaurant are good.. The two diners we had in the hotel were very good! Our room was oke, but a bit old en very warm and that for a april day (dont want to think what a hot summer will be like). The hotel staff was very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was good but also not a 4 star!
Overall oke hotel.. but I will not go back!

Stayed April 2008

This is a pleasant enough hotel with spacious rooms and an excellent breakfast provided.
However, the hotel has a flat roof and no air conditioning. The room (in May) was very hot. I would hesitate to go there in the summer as one would not be able to sleep. The interconnecting doors are not sound proofed and we noticed the difference between the room next door being occupied and vacant by the noise.
The staff with one exception on the reception were unfriendly and disinterested.
The breakfast things were very rarely cleared away which meant my daughter and I had to sit in the smoking area and others had to sit amongst the debris of earlier 'diners'. Once the food on the buffet had run out it took a long time to be replenished.
Once the table clearers arrived, it was very obvious that they would rather have been somewhere else and there was a lot of bashing and crashing going on.
There is a display in the entrance hall of pamphlets describing local attarations and places of interest. I didn't see what I was looking for and when I asked if they had any information on my chosen place the 'short' answer was "if it's not in the rack then,no." I'm sure they are not personally responsible for what goes in the rack but there are more friendly and polite ways of speaking to customers.
We were never once asked if we had enjoyed our stay - they probably guessed what the answer might be.
The hotel was good value for money but I would consider paying more for a little more comfort and a friendly greeting.
