Room smartly designer Poor gym limeted equipment and equipment not working well
The dinning room staff was very good, Good menu. The exercise facilty was disappointing. The machines were broken and old.
Good location Expensive parking
all paperwork ready - single signature required. Very quick and easy
Location, very convenient for the train station and city centre.
cetrally located, modern lobby, good breakfast the pictures show other rooms than i got (not renovated)
Nespresso machine in bedroom was nice. TV picture poor.Breakfast expensive.
Great Staff, Excellent Service. Nothing
I liked that description of the hotel fully conforms what I have found there - no surprises and that was good.
No tea or Coffee facilities
Very close to place of work Too far out from city centre
Being in the swimming-pool yacuzzi until 23.00 They did not have hot chocolate, but it was not important
business trip - i had to study so couldn't enjoy the facilities no , very pleased
Very comfortable spacious room, good restaurant with prompt service. Nice lobby with free internet and business center.
great leasure center, excellent breakfast 7 km far away from city center, but the bus stop is close to hotel
The spa and the quite environment made it a pleasant stay.the room was clean and all the comodities where there.the materass was a really good and firm one.
sauna and breakfast the lady in the front desk was not polite enough when we asked the transportation to the city, and she didn't show us clearly, we got back to ask again when we were out and found that's uneasy to find the direction.
it was just a stop over while waiting for the ferry the cost of the breakfast was unreasonable
Decor meybe a bit out of date.
rooms are very luxery
It`s small and comfortable , it has nice surroundings. There was no fridge with cold drinks in the room:)
The location was very good. The lighting in our room was very poor and the room was cold when we first arrived - it took us some time to figure out how to work the heating. Also there was apparently a mouse in the breakfast room on one of the mornings while we were there. We didn't see it but other guests reported it to us and told us not to sit in a certain area of the breakfast room. Apparently mice are common in buildings in Utrecht as the buildings are so old, but I still didn't like it.
Location Pricing, outrageous... for a simple basic 4 star hotel. Moreover, arriving at 21.00 the kitchen was closed and no warm food was available...Every monday the kooker goes home earlier :)
Cleanliness, no fuss, comfortable room near the place where I had to be. the noise from outside, but that is something that the hotel cannot help
Having the Ludden restaurant attached provided an excellent and convenient dining experience. Cost of the breakfast is too expensive
Comfortable, well appointed hotel in a good location Bells. There are church bells all Sunday morning, not too early (starting say 9 or 10), but then continuing non-stop. It was unbelievable, like a horror movie.
They renovated the floor I stayed at, and that ment that there was a very bad smell from painting and the builders started working at 7 in the morning!
friendliness and helpful reception/bar staff
The location is excellent fo business travellers, being adjacent to the station. The room was far too hot and had no temparature control that worked. The internet system with its passwords and codes to be retreived from the front desk was archaic and ridiculous. The in room amenities, from the nearly broken chair to the awful shower and its primitive shower curtain were very poor and archaic.
Very good.modern hotel with good facilities
Decent Hotel For The Money Bit far away from amsterdam itself. 30-45 min train journey and at 11Euro a return ticket can get expensive!
Convenient location near the train station. The hotel was run-down and old - peeling paint, dirty carpets, rusty bathroom fixtures... it was depressing, certainly not up to the standard of other NH hotels I have stayed in.
Hotel location. Ability to access printing facilities in lobby was very handy. Would have liked supplies in room to have been replenished on second day i.e. i.e. bags.
Unclear information about where the restaurants were and their menus. This may have been because the hotel was being refurbished at the time. Dining alone one evening was a slightly uncomfortable experience with very slow service.
The staff is very polite and helpful. Very good location close to the train station and expositions facilities( Messe) No safety box in the room. Breakfast very expensive. We had breakfast out of the hotel. For the high price of the room the breakfast should be included.
close to messe hall the towels looked dirty
It's location Having to chase tea & creamer for the room. Lacks those little extras like real milk, biscuits in room, toiletries, all of which use to be provided. I have stayed in this hotel every year for the last 10 years.
Staff was quite pleasant. However for lunch it was more geared to groups with no a la carte for individual bookings. Very limited choice for health conscious beings. The room price was a normal rate despite the fact that there was noisy renovations going on. This was not mention in the time of electronic booking. However the library corner was one good new addition but it was still being worked on.
Staff were friendly and helpful Unfortunately, this hotel is undergoing major construction. Noise, dust, lack of parking on the premises... is a serious issue. My feeling is they should have closed the place for the duration. They did give us a bottle of house wine when we checked in, though. Also, there were no towels in our room when we got there...
The friendliness and service of the staff. The prices of the minibar. the food wasnt great, the room was bit dirty, like the phone and the remote control were sticky! Think it needs a good cleaning in and out! Even with the price I paid (90 euro per night) I expect a littlebit better.
Quiet atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff. Easy to get to from the airport, train, or car. I first stayed there in 1993. Stayed again in 1996 and 2001 with my wife.
location, bed reception desk (incoming calls) was populated with a bunch of laughing children calling themselves the staff
Friendliness of staff
The free wireless internet and mini-bar fridge in my room were nice amenities. The hotel bar and restaurant were very nice atmosphere, and food was excellent. The Hotel was out of the city center, but convenient nonetheless and well priced accordingly. No. Everything was more than satisfactory.
good location too noisy
good breakfast,noce personell, During renovations of this hotel it is unavoidable noisy.
very peaceful athmosphere in a lovely setting- accommodation clean and well laid out- staff friendly and helpful- good public transport links to main cities i.e. 50 mins to Amsterdam
It was a lovely location. The hotel was peaceful - perhaps as it was a weekend visit. Conveniently located for exploring the area - cycling and walking. The breakfast is extensive, but could be more varied. We stayed 3 nights and the (warm) food was the same every day.
the food was in the restaurant small in portion and in my personal oppinion (and of my staff who stayed there as well) poorly of quality for the price we payed
Because it was a weekend, there was not so many guests therefore not so many smokers. ( I am allergic to smoke). The front desk was very nice, all the staff greeted to me when we passed by. The breakfast was great, a restaurant they recommended us to go was nice Dutch. Espresso machine was out of use, maybe the machines are there just for hot water.
comfortable, accessible and in attractive surroundings. staff were very helpful. the early check out time of 9.00 am.
Very good hotel. We stayed in the new wing and the room was clean and modern. The hotel is in a quiet foredt setting so a car is required. The hotel was not busy during the weekend.
It was out of the city and offered a nice taste of the countryside with some class Weekend breakfast should start at least at 6:30 as many of us have business early in the city Sat and Sun
The hotel is clean and new, and is located in a beautiful walking area. It's actually a business conference centre. It's huge, and seemed completely empty, maybe because it was a saturday. Hanging out in the bar we were the only customers.
Very nice surrounding, good breakfast, friendly service and nice rooms.
Next door to where I was having a meeting the next day Lack of accurate travel information to reach the hotel by public transport rather than car. They mention train-taxis which no longer exist in Holland in that area.
peaceful loctaion. Breakfast being included was a nice bonus
Nice surroundings and everything very neat and clean. Beds were very soft and terrible on our backs. Time they looked into the possibility of orthopedic matresses or at least the option of firmer matresses at clients request.
nice sorroundings, quietly located in the old park,
Everything, especially the restaurant. The retaurant staff were all very nice to us.
The staff was very helpful and nice. We enjoyed the pool. The breakfast was really really good. The bed in our room was uncomfortable, and there was no play ground for kids.
The staff were very helpful and freindly We did not like the twin beds and the fact that we could not make a cup of coffee in the comfort of our room due to us not having a coffee maker in the room
service fine and kind
Very quiet location next to a forest, very good standard and wonderful price on Sundays.
Buffet breakfast. Free partking & WiFi. Ideally suited for business travellers. I guess the quality of the cooked meat products for breakfast could be improved.
breakfast, position bathroom could be better
location, friendly staff breakfast is pretty expensive, rooms are small for a 4 star hotel
Value for money, location. The reading lamps above the bed. Breakfast too expensive.
The ambience of the restaurant was very good and the staff were very helpful and polite I thought the breakfast was not good value for money and that the room and particularly the bathroom was small for the rate charged.
The heating system did not work.I sleeped all night without heating. Breakfast was too expensive (17,50€) as all other services (for sauna 10€ , for a bottle of water 5,16€ !!!).It was not a good experience.
The restaurant food was excellent. The cost of breakfast.
The price The room was tiny.
Room was nice and bed was cosy Showers didnt have proper draining so entire bathroom floor could get wet
It was clean hotel with decent breakfest serving. Room was clean, pleasent enviroment.Pricelevel can be accepted. If only, than workers behind window started to work 7.30, I wasn't ready for this....
The room used to be a smoking room and still smelled of smoke. No watercooker or facilities in room to make tea or coffee.
The hotel is close to the train station (5 minutes by walk); professional hotel staff; excellent breakfast; quiet room; etc
The room was too cold, even with the radiator working. The big sofa in front of it just block the heat. The air conditioning control on the wall seems not to work or make any change. I wake up in the morning with a nasty cold.
good rate , away from City traffic jams, near to Highway, very good restaurant
The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean, including a good bed and mattrass. The food was not that good -I had a soup and beefcarpaccio. I missed a hairdryer in the bathroom and a holder for showergel etc in the shower.
Parking facilities and immediate access to motorway Staff in restaurant is unfit
I did not like it at all. There was too much effort put into the business conferencing. The atmosphere, the bed was uncomfortable, there was not enough attention to detail in stocking up our room with tea and coffee. We had to ask for more supplies and more pillows. The towells were far too small. I would expect this was a much cheaper hotel.
To meet other persons The rain
Nice location, near a forest. But pretty far from the city center, which is also easy to rich by bus (10 min).
Area, Staff, Good Public Transport !
the place out of the room is beautiful
really picturesque setting, a relaxing break from the craziness of Amsterdam
close to the woods & all on one level The restaurant closed at 8pm
Quite location, non-smoking rooms only. Only very small "finding": restaurant offers buffet dinner only (but a very good one, for 24,80 Euro).
Bergse Bossen is a nice and clean hotel with friendly staff. It's close to Utrecht so you can easily avoid traffic jams. WiFi inside the hotel is good. However on the terrace theire's no wireless internet connection possible.
Quietness, but still good location. Evening buffet very good if not so cheap. Hairdryer not in room, can ask at reception though. Evening buffet finishes early.
Location was just perfect for us. Free use of internet. Clean rooms with adequate furnishing. Free parking. Bicycle rental at EUR 8.50 a day. Safe in each room. The one window in the room opens just a crack. The safe in our room didn’t work for 4 days, but we were offered another room with a working safe. There is a printing service at the reception but when I wanted to use it, I was informed that for some technical reason printing was not possible. Breakfast is plenty but the variety of cheese (in the Netherlands!), yoghurt and cold cuts is poor.
no information that the hotel is only accessable via a 5km detour due to road works
Nice quiet location near wooded area Hotel did not have any tea making facilities in room
Very clean rooms, pleasant staff, nice rural location, good Wi-Fi Duvet cover way too thin. Very disturbed sleep and was awakened many timess through cold (it was only September). No ability to regulate temperature in room.
The staff was wonderful and the bungalow we stayed in was very clean. The breakfast was very good with lots of choices including cold cuts, eggs, cereal, yogurt, and many types of bread. We had the buffet dinner one night during our stay, and it was also very good. If you want to hike or bike, this is a great place. There is nothing that we did not like, but be advised that the hotel is about an hour from Amsterdam. We chose it because we also wanted to visit the Kröller-Müller Museum in the Hoge Veluwe National Park in Otterlo. The hotel is only about a 20 minute drive to this museum.
Clean Hotel Beautiful Location Walls are paper thin can hear the people next door talk and what they say
Staff was pleasant and helpful. Location was great for attending a wedding next door at the Castle. The apartment I rented was much more expensive than a regular room but I thought the convenience of a stove and refrigerator would be worth the extra cost. As it turns out, there were no pots, pans, dishes, glassware etc! Not even a coffee pot! A bit ridiculous to call this an apartment! Worst part was a metal grate stair case that you had to use to access the apartment. Women attending a wedding next door wearing high heeled shoes would find it impossible to go up or down these steps!
Kind staff and nice food Noisy rooms due to bad insulation and proximity with the motorway
The friendly staff and the beautiful Christmas decorations during our stay. Breakfast with table service in a very nice looking restaurant. I really regret it that, due to our time schedule, we haven't been able to have dinner in the restaurant but will certainly put it on the calendar during a next visit in the area. I missed a luggage rack in the room and the "collection" of 4 very different coat hangers was rather comical. Some bath towel hooks and a well sized mirror near the room's door, not in the cupboard as now, would raise the points score for comfort.
A quiet country location with friendly and helpful staff. Nice bar and excellent restaurant. Would definitely stay again.
Excellent food None
Excellent and nice service. Nice location.
You have to pay for the wifi.They did not want to use the credit card provided at the booking.They asked us for another credir card.So if your company is paying for the stay keep in mind you will have to pay yourself once there.(but if it is a no shoxw then they use your company credit card to take the cancelation fees!)
The private car parking of the hotel was not safe. The baby bed was not good.
great location for city centre and value for money
Rooms had been refurbished, Good TV service, Helpful staff Slow lift
The staff , very good , helpfull , polite , happy , spoke good english , dining room food very good , overall great hotel , Special thank you to tim at front counter . No
Friendly staff and easy parking and access
Nothing We were treated appallingly by the reception staff who tried to make us return to Amsterdam
The buffet Breakfast was great although i felt 13euro was maybe a little steep. The staff were very helpful. The location was not too far from the central station, although a tram was necissary. Overall a pleasant stay, but I wouldnt say its the best place ever.
Breakfast is very good for so called Ibis level.
poor service in hotel bar
Friendly and polite service and helpfulness of all staff
A very nice stay with good memories: correct and friendly staff, pleasant environment
Nice location. Friendly staff Breakfast was overpriced in my opinion
Magnificent countryside, ideal for walks and cycling It was distant from the inhabited areas
Atmosphere was very nice, quiet in the area... Everything was ok
living in the States for quite some time now, this is one of the first nice hotels in the Netherlands that are not crampy and where you have enough space in your room: excellent!
very polite and friendly staff, they were very pro-actively supporting us to make sure that also our baby was doing fine.
We stayed at the Oud London many years before at the start of a military tour in Holland. The hotel has expanded greatly since our last stay, all for the good. The main restaurant was still the same outstandingly excellence. Wonderful food, superb impeccable service! The room was spacious, clean and the staff most friendly. We were in the area attending a reunion of military members who had served in the area in years past. A most wonderful experience! This is a great hotel from which to enjoy the wooded area of central Holland.
Reasonably priced for what I got. They have plenty of free parking. If you like to walk or hike there seem to be woods all around you. The hotel is devoid of any charm, at least to my taste. It appears to cater to companies that run seminars and for this purpose it seems well equipped.
Noice, international standard, with great restaurant and facilites We liked almost everything
The personnel on reception is very helpful. Breakfast is OK (the view from the breakfast room is very pleasant). The floor in rooms and coridors is awful - like on the parking: it's a poured floor which produces great noises. When the guests in the next rooms come - the impossible noise is in all your room around. Every step is like a fall of hammer. The design of the room is also more than disputable - the open bath without any walls is in the center of the room. So no privacy and high humidity in the room are guaranteed. They have bath and WC with the common door (very noisy and no privacy). Roommate entered the room with "Do not disturb" sign on the door. In this moment my hisband was in this OPEN bath. The only brasserie near the hotel is awful - meals are too "fine dining" - they cooked 2 dishes 2,5 hours and they have not been tasty at all.
the modern design of the hotel makes the stay excellent.
Very nice location. Quiet environment. Modern and unique design. Very good restaurant nearby (De Halle Bloom?) with quality food and service. Room wasn't spotlessy clean. Bed had probably been used for a nap. One of the pillows was dirty. I thought flooring wasn't consistent with quality standard of other building material of the hotel, but that's probably personal taste. Minimal service of the staff for breakfast.
a great room with a twist
Free internet good speed. Stylish hotel room for single use. Instant coffee is not expected in a 4 star hotel
The hotel is in a very quiet place, overall was very clean. The wellness area is not to be considered a real wellness area, it's very basic and not cozy at all. There is no atmosphere in this hotel and I was very disappointed. You walk in the sauna area on a concrete floor, they could make a nice floor out of wood or something nice were to walk. The room was cold, it took 6 hours to get warm. The location is in the middle of nowhere, I still don't understand what is the purpose of this hotel: weekend, relax? Not a cozy place to spend a weekend!
Good restaurant in the grounds of the hotel. Rather bleak, functional, minimalist style, lacking atmosphere, smart design being more important than comfort in this hotel. Breakfast not included and expensive, so breakfasted elsewhere.
The staff is very friendly. The hotel is bright new. The decoration is simple design, very relaxing. The situation is nice, in a middle of the fields and forest. Very calm. The room is clean and comfortable. Nothing.
Nice modern design, clean and very friendly staff
Perfect diner - open kitchen. Nice location. Modern looks. It was difficult to find. Not close to the highway.
Very friendly staff.
quite room, good bed hindrance of smoke from other rooms, in the corridor, in the reception and in the restaurant Cleaning staff leeft door open, showing valuable stuff like my laptop to all who walked through the corridor No drinks in the room
1) free of charge wireless internet access (I could work as much as I needed!) 2) very friendly and helpfull hotel staff 3) food at the restaurant is very good 4) the view from my room's window was marvelous! 5) location (it is very close to De Meern where I had a workshop at Oracle) 6) no problem with parking the car 7) family atmosphere in the hotel 8) free breackfast
Very nice hotel with helpful and friendlly staff and good comfort. Harmelen is a nice little place and it's quick easy to drive to other destinations in Holland.
Lovely breakfast in a great location overlooking the water.
The Hotel met my requirements.
- cheap hotel, so quality/price is good - located at 5 km from De Meern (Utrecht), without traffic jam to and from De Meern - not convenient if you want to go to Utrecht center - WIFI network is not available in the whole hotel, and looks a little bit slow
Very helpful, friendly staff.
Pleasant staff, good breakfast (starts@6:30!) en decent diner. The hotel/cafe is in the middle of an old village and is also the meeting place for the locals. Nice atmosphere. The rooms are a bit outdated but fair. Rooms in the hotel are a bit noisy (not in the dependance) Parking is sometimes a problem but never parked further then 100m from the hotel
O staff, breakfast and the confortable room
Hotel staffs are very well. no
Is a little outside Utrecht centre but accessible by bus. Room was extremely comfortable with English TV and coffee maker, dressing gown was provided. Owners were extremely friendly and helpful and when I asked about local ATMs, they were happy to give me cash on a debit card transaction. Breakfast was a bit expensive at €10. Other than that, no complaints.
The Hotel is a late 19th Century town house and has original features, set in a nice location. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Very friendly atmosphere and comfortable.
I cannot recommend this hotel highly eneough. the room was large, comfortable, tastefully decorated and well equiped, with a balcony overlooking a large back garden leading to a tree-lined canal. Breakfast was always delicious and fresh, and the staff were always warm, welcoming, friendly, accommodating and helpful. I would have no hesitation to book again at this hotel if I return to Utrecht. The bathroom could do with a bit of redecoration as it does not seem to match the comfortable modernity of the rest of the room. But this is nit-picking as it was spotlessly clean and fully functioning.
a) The service, b) Customer Care, c) Easy Transport, d) Location Don't think anythink I didn't like
Very good and comfortable family run hotel. Is worth more than two stars.
The friendliness of the staff
The charming staff, they were always there and helpful
Room quite large. Both tube and shower in the room. Limited TV channes choice. View from window (terrace with other rooms ...)
The friendliness and good service off all staff and the quality of restaurant meals
Room was spacious and clean
elegant,spacious clean room . too close to the road for the luxury room. The restaurant staff not organized and slow, we never been in a Van der Valk before with so poor staff for the restaurant.(exception the reception, helpfull)
We are frequent visitors to Holland and this was one of the nicest hotels we have stayed at. No complaints whatsoever.
big rooms and very large beds!!!!! sportarea is missing
Room space, wonderful breakfast, quiet place No
everything, including a great variety offered for breakfast!
It is very quiet and the rooms are very large. The breakfast buffet is very good. No toilet brush. No ash trays on the balcony. The internet is very expensive.
The hotel was fantastic and made our stay very enjoyable. One of the receptionists went out of his way to give us local information and even checked some details for us on the internet. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, whether it was the hot food or the cold, the selection was second to none. The views from our room were lovely as well, very relaxing. The only problem we encountered was that when we arrived at the hotel it was dark and very wet. We struggled to find the hotel entrance and because all the rooms have balconies we thought that it was an apartment block not a hotel. So perhaps some clearer signage would be good?
Pretty restaurant, wonderful Libanese food. Super friendly staff. Room was nice, hallways a bit dark. Nevertheless, I'll be back.
It was clean. Interesting design. Not really suitable for buisiness travel. Difficulty in obtaining proper invoice. Breakfast available since 11 in a restaurant downstairs. Probably good but if you are on business trip it is non convenient
The room was unique
the bathroom! the design of the hotel, the colours n/a
Nespresso coffemaker and spacious room
It is a nice, clean hotel. There was no Reception Area, so there was no one to hassle you. It was a relaxed, chill-out atmosphere. The location was good and there was a bus stop across the street from the hotel to take you into the town centre and train station. Everything in the room was blue/turquoise and it made the room very dark. The lighting was bad and it was not possible to read. I had to sit on the window sill to read. The ethnic decor though funky would be more suited to a young couple in love. The room (with double bed only) was not suitable for me, as I shared the room with a male relative who slept on the couch. There was no facility for a second bed in the room. The room was too pricey and I did not find it value for money.
It is an extraordinary place, design, style and atmosphere is wonderful. I recommend this place for short trip to the Netherlands.
I liked the decor and the ambiance That I didn't have time to fully expirence the hotel
