Large rooms. A excellent selection for breakfast.
Clean, nice staff, good value although a little far from gronigen which I ask for.
Clean and pleasant room, good restaurent, convenient and spacious car park.
Great staff and good service
comfortable counter in the bathroom is a bit small
My stay was very enjoyable, the room was clean as well as the bathroom. In the bathroom we found the placement of the toilet roll very inadequate. The room was also a bit too warm.
Good excess from main roads Soft-drink machine placed against my room. Noisy men and women in the room(s)
Staff very friendly & helpful Bathroom showers make no sense ..... 1/3 of a shower door with the shower located in the rear of the tub. Do you folks really like wet floors? Seems this is typical of Europe, but these deep tubs and crazy showers are accidents waiting to happen. Hope you have good insurance.
Easy to find and centrally located. The meal in the restaurant was disappointing.
Ambiance and friendly staff May be the rooms too hot
This hotel has it all. Great facilities, clean and comfortable rooms and excellent restaurants where the food and service were fantastic. Its ideal for a peaceful weekend away in lovely surroundings but easy to find. Probably the nicest "chain" hotel I've stayed in
De kamers waren schoon en netjes, fijn terras buiten, mooie omgeving, vriendelijk personeel, helemaal goed! Ontbijtbuffet was na 10.00 uur al bijna helemaal leeg.. gelukkig waren wij er voor 10.00 uur maar een tweede rondje zat er niet in.
Very quiet, relaxing place. Very recommendable hotel. Very clean.
Location was nice, quiet, and their dining experience was excellent. An airconditioning unit would have been highly appreciated, during the hot summer months
employee kindness interior bit rundown
the hotel was situatedin a very nice forest area. The swimming pool was very nice and the room was big.
location, pool, dinner (though expensive), breakfast
Well positioned hotel in the grounds of the Oranjewoud park, clean, well maintained and with an excellent restaurant. Staff efficient and friendly.
smoking fumes incorridor filtering into our room
Clean hotel, friendly staff, good value, have stayed frequently and will continue to stay in the future. Bars of soap have been replaced by little bottles of soap which are a bit inconvenient. The restaurant is very average - it used to be superb. Either the chef has changed or the ingredients. If it's the chef, please get the old chef back for a week to train the new one.
Excellent service and civility. A first class hotel\at affordable prices. Restaurant selection excellent
Friendly helpful staff and an excellant restaurant.
the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the location was perfect. it was extremely noisy, but overall value for money is excellent.
The hotel had very good bicycles for guests to use; they might provide the service of a good old fashioned "fietspomp" in addition to the bykes.
Quiet hotel. Nice environment (golf). Excellent starting point for a bike tour. Breakfast and dinner were alright. Asked for a non-smokers room. However, stayed in a smokers room. The weather was fine, so, we slept well with windows wide open.
Location, close to Thialf. Location, rather far away from city centre.
There was freezing.
Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Nothing special about the hotel.
Staff very good , very modern, very clean and quiet
The room was splendid. Surroundigs were nice with children. Nice little village with friendly people.
Great room, nice interior, good breakfast.
excellent service very clean and tidy no complains at all
spacious, clean family room. nice bathroom. Good restaurant. Beds not comfortable (mattresses too soft). Hotel staff not professional, not helpful. At reception staff could not understand and was not able to answer questions (in english) like "do you serve breakfast a la carte?", or "can you recommend a nice bike trail nearby?". Children room not safe, too many furniture sharp edges, beware of in-room accidents. Parking-facing rooms are noisy and not offer value for money if you're seeking quiete coutryside holiday. WiFi extremely slow (couldn't use VoIP or streaming video) and very expensive.
When we arrived in the evening, we asked to have dinner. Even if it was a bit late 21:30, it was still possible to eat. But the waiters told us that it was not possible to have dinner in the restaurant so the served us dinner at the bar which was not very comfortable.
Lovely hotel, attentive staff, clean, comfortable & well looked after rooms - what more could you need?
I always like the proximity to my family that lives in the area and the friendliness of everyone, staff and others. I only wish they had better beds... Queen or King size, instead of two twin beds pushed together...
Hôtel reception, restaurant and bar are really nice. Tower rooms are a good value for money The staff was not that pleasant. I use to stay in other Van der Valk hotel with much more friendly staff!
nice and new hotel breakfast for our 7 years old child for 1O,5O it is a lot of
Excellent staff service
Generous room sizes--and a gloriously deep bath. Staff were friendly. We would have appreciated being told we had to book dinner well in advance--on the Saturday night the restaurant was full and we were obliged to go out to the nearest town.
Fantastic place to stay! would recommend it to any one visiting northern Holland.
This is an excellent hotel - a bit hard to find, but a great staff, large rooms, great value for the money!
a very relaxed pleasant atmosphere good food
Excellent food, comfortable rooms, relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. Enjoyed the outdoor heated pool and tennis court. The interior of the rooms is quite dated, old television, no DVD player and bit smelly sofa in our room and in the lounge.
good tailored service. nice peaceful location. nice small pool with sauna.
Very clean, comfortable, the rooms are big with very nice design, dinner is very good, the staff was very responsive and helped with all questions No free internet in the rooms
Staff were friendly, professional and flexible for our strange schedule (3 year old early dinner, late arrival of cyclists) despite being busy. The food was excellent, both dinner and breakfast, and the room was spacious and comfortable, especially for the 150km cyclists. If the sun had shone, it would be a perfect location with the swimming pool, gardens, and terraces.
The breakfast was very good - lots to choose from, fresh and local products, in a nice atmosphere. The room looked old-fashioned, it seemed that most of the furniture and curtains etc still were from the nineties. Furthermore, as the hotel was in the middle of nowhere, you'd expect it to be romantic (what else there is to do but stare in each others eyes?) but it was really not. In general, I think there are many hotels in the Netherlands that deliver more value for money.
Friendliness, attention to detail and overall hospitality.
The quitness and calmness, beatifull surroundings.
Very nice location and excellent bed Charging 17 euro for 24 hours in a hotel like this is over the top. I expect service. The also send one a survey. 10 minutes is far too long and it contains questions pushing you into a specific statement. deleted it.
We stayed there many times over the years. ( For all above-mentioned reasons.) It is even better now that the hotel is totally smoke-free. And we like the 'new look' following their recent renovations (2008)). It is our favorite hotel in North Holland. We had an excellent service in the dining room the first evening. However, the second evening - they were short of staff - and it took much too long to eat a simple 4-course meal (19h00 to 22h30..)
It was all very good.
The setting of the hotel was beautiful, the rooms lovely, the food great and the staff friendly & helpful. The pool and pool-side areas are lovely! We had believed the spa services would be more extensive and more professional than they were. In our view they were over-priced for the services received and we felt a little cheated by them. For example, the expensive 30 minute massage was actually 15-20 minutes with time left over to "lay and rest".
Helpful staff. Hotel clean. Nice quiet location about 20 minutes from Assen TT circuit. Excellent breakfast and evening meal. Meals in hotel restaraunt a bit expensive.
The room looked lovely, clean and pristine, the staff were helpfull and friendly During the night I constantly heard scuttling (probably rats or mice) in the wall cavities and along the roof (I rules out bats as they went along the beams). I got the worst nights sleep I have had in ages, which didn't exactly make me on top of the world for the next day, especially as I had to drive almost 300 miles back to Dunkirk at the end of it.
The Pub down the Road and the friendly Staff at the hotel Beds Not fantastic
The staff were really helpful, especially with information about attractions around the area and travel arrangements.
nice hotel on the edge of shopping area beside canal. great staff good service nice bar area . very good dinning room food to very high standard. all in all a great place to stay.
helpful staff good food and nice location
Location excellent staff friendly and helpful hotel clean tidy resturant food good breakfast included in price good and plentiful second time stay for bike racing but would go back just for a lazy break with the wife
All round I was very impressed with the hotel and the staff None
It was not noisy at night. I liked the surroundings, and the small town. Great breakfast.
Food was very good,staff extremely welcoming and friendly. No bad points,only one on my behalf that we didn't stay longer.
Staff were very helpful and brekfast plentiful. Bar area was very nice. Our room was in need of some re decoration and updating however it was very clean
Location, clenliness of room & restaraunt. the staff were polite. I will be coming back. I would like to have seen tea / coffie making facilities in the room
Lovely very well renovated old farm. Perfect welcome, very friendly, very nice atmosphere, excellent food(do not forget to book for restaurant too). Apart from the usual Dutch stairs, you can not open windows but it is nicely compensated by air circulation system and it is better to avoid mosquitoes...
Staff wer very kind and good food.
Nice location in the friesland countryside. Shower had no door or curtain and water goes everywhere. Breakfast not until 830! Overpriced dinners and rooms for that area.
Excellent breakfast, very helpful staff, nice central Friesland location, good restaurant, highly recommended! No screen in the shower, so the water went everywhere.
Quiet and nice people. N.A.
The setting was lovely. All the staff were friendly. The room was clean and it had everything we needed. The food was very good but we felt it was expensive.There was a very odd smell in our bedroom.
Faire price - good hospitallity - along the water breakfast nice - friendly staff - bathroom clean small room ( if you want to stay more than one nigth ) - some odour in the cabinet in which you put your spare clothes in
Nice location, excellent food, very nice and kind staff.
Very comfortable and clean. Staff very helpful. Restaurant, food and waitress excellent.
The staff were very helpful & friendly. The stairs to our room were very steep - just something for info, not something that caused us to dislike the hotel.
The room was comfortable and newly decorated and the staff were hospitable. The food in the restaurant was very good.
very clean and staff friendly and very helpful
Large room, comfortable bed, decent breakfast, great view. Lots of stairs, terrible noise from the restaurant terrace until 1-2 am, reception difficult to reach when restaurant is full.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful. Our stay there was quiet and relaxing. We could have rented their bikes too, but did not have time to. Just a reminder that stairs in Holland are more on the steep side.
great area to hike, cycle, etc.
The setting, ambiance and staff were very nice. There were good trails to walk our dog. The rooms were comfortable.
The staff were so helpful, for example, when we would leave for work too early for breakfast, they would pack us a breakfast/lunch and leave outside out door - even on coming home, they didn't let us go without food and drink for the journey. They even gave us a lift to the railway as they thought it was too far to walk! Certainly a true family environment, and equally as caring1 Absolutely nothing we can put in this box!
I loved the historic feel of the hotel - renovated from an old home and the ambience was very warm and European - it reminded me of the show Faulty Towers except they were very professional. The rooms were very small but I understand there's going to be a big renovation.
cannot comment as visit was for a funeral No tea or coffee facilities in bedroom
Staff very helpfull,nice reception areas, we ate at a restaurant owned by the owners in the town and the food was outstanding Bedrooms very dated, perhaps need updating
Breakfast was very late
Very friendly & helpful staff.Very good eveinng dinners Room facilities a bit basic.
Good size rooms with excellent shower facility. Motel style. Very good breakfast. For my taste too near the motorway and too far from town centre. Had I known I would have stayed somehwre else. My fault for not researching properly.
Rooms are clean and cosy, under condition, that you will force staff to give you renewd room. Not renewd are real tragedy, not worth even 20Euro...
Request for one large bed was not noticed - hotels has hardly one....
The dining room position and view and the little gift on the bed The bathroom could be refurbished
Too noisy all night. Couldn't sleep.
the hotel staff is very kind, the room is comftorable and clean there was no wlan reception inside the room only in the lobby, the hotel is not in a walking distance from the center.
I liked the service from the hotel, the room was very clean and comfortable, bathroom well equiped... No
Friendly, helpful staff Restaurant closes at 21:00
We had a desent room, the restaurant is very nice and the staff was very friendly. Food was excellent.
Comfort of the bed, quiteness of the room, friendliness of front desk personnel. 2 Things:1) the internet connection was not accessible in my room, and when I was in the front side wing of the hotel it dropped connection a few times, so that could be improved with more robust systems. 2) the scrambled eggs for breakfast in the buffet were not fully cooked and were watery.
Friendliness of the staff. Situated in pretty village. Rather noisy if bar below busy.
The staff were very kind and helpful The steps to our room were very steep and as I have had 2 hip replacements it was very difficult to get up and down. It's probably not a hotel for the even slghtly disabled
Very kind staff, good food and excellent service.Very quiet at night.
it was very chaotic when we left the hotel, couldn't find our names in comp. etc. Wrong reservatons for wrong dates, we changed all those things when we checked in but when I checked out still wrong information about us! Confusing!
pleasant staff, good food, very good breakfast buffet the room we stayed in was a little too small
WIFI temporarilly failed
Site states WiFi in room. This is not true and only allows access to Windows PC's in the Resturant, where staff pester you for drinks all the time.
Interesting lobby and restaurant A strange smell in my room
No fridge in room. Hot and uncomfortable.
cosy, friendly hotel with a good kitchen. Friendly and efficient staff. excellent breakfast with fresh orange juice. I would suggest to ad some fresh tomatoes to the breakfast which is for the rest outstanding.
We had a room with a small terrace overlooking the garden. Very nice and clean. The staff were very friendly and accommodating as our party included a vegetarian and a guy that can't have dairy or wheat in his food.
The setting was beautiful, the staff very friendly and attentive and the food superb.
Friendly staff,excellent food and a picturesque setting.
It was a small but handsome room. The hotel is at a central location. There was a nice breakfast buffet
Beautiful environment Nothing
