“Not for tourists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We are a Australian couple travelling Europe for 6 months, this hotel appears very nice but the staff are not happy or welcoming...we arrived 9.30am for breakfast one morning and it was very basic, I requested cold meat and was told abruptly breakfast is nearly finished?? Not good morning or hello etc, the room was very basic with the most awful bed spread on the bed, if they just took the bed spread off it would be a better appearance...the bathroom was tiny and water would not regulate was either cold or hot (room 28)...We do not recommend this hotel for tourists. Purmarent locals support this hotel and are made welcome.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

I stayed in this hotel whilst on a weekend break visiting a friend who stayed in pummerend. There was a party of 5 and we booked 3 rooms. Our friend booked the hotel on our behalf. The hotel was close to restaurants and shops and all within walking distance. My friend picked us up so I can't comment on easiness too public transport.
Staff are pleasant although I found them to be slow on asking for requests.
The room itself was very basic, the bed was comfortable but it was 2 single beds pushed together and into a double bed. The window didn't close but didn't cause a problem as the weather was ok but i would imagine if it was winter, it might cause a problem. There was no dressing table with mirror or a plug nearby that was suitable too use for any hair drying.
One thing was that there was no tea/coffee making facilities which is a first and this is something that should be considered.

We had breakfast on the second morning and found there was lots to choose from and fresh, no complaints there.

It is not a hotel for 'tourists' I would say and I found it to be overpriced compared too what we received. The only bonus was free wi fi.
If I was to return, it possibly would consider returning if the price was right but I would definitely consider other hotels first.

The location is good, free parking and a cosy restaurant. The food is good and so is the ambiance. Staff is friendly but not professional. We made a table reservation in the serre, it was not ready. Waiting on another table but no excuse. Long time to wait for the menu and for the dishes and for the bill

This must be one of the smaller Van der Valk hotels in the Netherlands. Most of them are huge! But with this small scale comes its special character: comfortable and friendly. The rooms (standard) are not big but big enough for a one or two nights stay. The bed is good and the bathroom has a bath with shower.
One thing we are missing in dutch hotels (and Van der Valk is not the only one lacking it) is coffee and tea making facilities.
The restaurant is fairly small although seating capacity can be extended as there are extensions and meeting rooms available. Food is good and service friendly and efficient.

We came over for business in this area and there are not too many hotels near by. It took a train connection from the airport to the Amsterdam Centraal and then by bus to Purmerend. The hotel staff is friendly and the breakfast tasty, thou not included in the room price. Wi-fi is free, unlike their web site is informing. We had our room in the 2nd floor and the stairs were very steep. So, be careful, if you have problems with mobility. The room itself was nice and cosy. There is also a good parking lot, so the hotel is very handy in all respects.

Room Tip: The same floor as the reception

Stayed here for one night. Hotel is easily acessible from the main Purmerend Station, the taxi costs just 7 euros.

Room is very spacious, the bed is two single beds pushed together. Bathroom is very nice as well.

There is a flat screen TV with plenty of channels, thing about Dutch TV is that a lot of their programmes are English/American with Dutch subtitles, so there is plenty to watch.

I didn't have breakfast here, so can't comment, but the check out time is 12pm, so its good to know you don't have to rush around to check out early in the morning.

Brilliant hotel, would recommend to anyone.
