A notch above the typical van der Valk standard but nothing special. It's not too expensive so if you are looking for a reasonably priced meal you can come here, if you are looking for some place special then it's better to go somewhere else.

I visited this hotel with a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids). The family suite was fine and well equipped for the family. Room enough and the state of the room was very good.
The breakfast was good as well and well prepared for the family. Would stay there again.

The thing is with the "service" by the staff. It's not what you would call "bad", but it feels too clean. Non-personal. Staff is a bit "on a distant". That's basically the only thing they should improve one significantly. Give the guests that personal touch, as if they were at home with you.

The location is ok in case you're travelling through. If you want to go to see Arnhem, don't go here. It's way out of town. But if you want to sleep, while on the road: great place!

The bar is a nice place to relax with friends.

We waited a very long time for our dinner and when it finally got served they mixed everything up. Two of us had our dinner while the other one of our party had to wait due to a mistake. No excuses, and it took a long time to correct their mistake. Paid the full amount though.

We stayed at this hotel because we were attending a wedding in a nearby town. We arrived about 30 minutes prior to their official check in (which is 2 pm). We were told our room was ready and if we would pay an early check in fee (which I believe was 25 euro) we could get our room. SERIOUSLY???? 25 euro for half an hour?
The rooms are huge, too big really for the size of the TV which is on the other end of the room. The bathroom is small in comparison to the room. It does have a nice bath and shower, We were on one of the top floors and even though there are no other high rise buildings in the area, it did make me uncomfortable there were no blinds to cover the window.

This hotel is great! I never had such a spacious and luxureous 'standard' room. If this is standard, what are the more expensive ones like?
30m2, jaccuzi, walk in rain shower, great bed and linnen and a roof terrace! 
Restaurant also of high quality. The menu is not that surprising but all dishes I had were of great quality! Breakfast buffet is huge and really nice! The hotel is close to the highway, but did not hear it at all. Its target group is obviously business people, not families. They manage to create a nice personal ambiance unlike most business oriented hotels.
