comfortable, accessible and in attractive surroundings. staff were very helpful. the early check out time of 9.00 am.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
Nice surroundings and garden; homely villa; some negatives, but still very pleasant Backbreaking haul to the 2nd floor via a steep, narrow staircase with a heavy suitcase; a requested cheese omelet became a fried egg with molten cheese(..); top floor too hot (and it wasn't even summer); getting there requires perfect map-reading skills
Friendly staff, nice ambience No laundry facilities, no lounge, no restaurant, too expensive in light of the aforementioned
Not your standard hotel but just a great Villa with nice designed rooms in the middle of Hilversum. I stayed in the suite and it was beautiful and spacious New towels please.
excellent, very nicely decorated and a great breakfast in the morning - the surrounding area of Hilversum proposes some excellent restaurants and great shoppong
The hotel offers a homely feeling. The quality is excellent and the design interesting. The breakfast is very good. I'd happily return to VT.
very personal service,clean and comfortable room.our's had an enclosed balcony the stairs are very steep and with the dark carpeting makes descent difficult
De stijl van 't hotel, klein, gezellig en stijlvol ingericht. nee
This is a very comfortable small hotel.
Extremely comfortable bed and sensible duvet tog rating . Both bath and shower rooms were immaculate ; Good varied breakfast . No mirror in bedroom : a box of facial tissues would have been appreciated .
It is very well designed The hotel is a no smoking one, but unfortunately someone had smoked in the room, and having thick carpet and many curtains, it smells a lot. My husband is allergic, and could not sleep.
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
peaceful loctaion. Breakfast being included was a nice bonus
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.
Everything, especially the restaurant. The retaurant staff were all very nice to us.
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.
Buffet breakfast. Free partking & WiFi. Ideally suited for business travellers. I guess the quality of the cooked meat products for breakfast could be improved.
nice sorroundings, quietly located in the old park,
breakfast, position bathroom could be better
service fine and kind
Very quiet location next to a forest, very good standard and wonderful price on Sundays.
Clean and comfortable, friendly and helpfull staff.Good location apart from noise problem related to ground floor bar. Problem with noise from rowdy crowds in front of bar / hotel - would only use this hotel again if able to be accomodated in room at rear.
A simple and clean hotel with nice staff, located in the historical centre of Amersfoort.
Great location- right on the square. Friendly staff
Soundproofed rooms I think, was pretty quiet. Overlooked a fab square with really fantastic restaurants and lovely shopping street nearby. In the centre of the historical city of Amersfoort no help to bring bag up stairs!
the architecture of the hall/restaurant restaurant closed on a sunday at 9.15 pm
The country side, the customer service of your staff members. No
The staff was obliging. Everything was functioning in a logic way. Free Internet.
The food was excellent and the service was good. For a 4 star hotel I thought the standard room was kind of very very very standard. No mini bar, an old big tv instead of flatscreen, no free wifi, plastic throw away glasses (2) absolutely no extra's.
Greate atmosphere, large and nice room (triple room), well located, large grass garden at the back
nice lounge and fantastic breakfast, very good price for value no airco in room
Very good service and nice people not in town center
Cleanliness, free internet use, size of the room, pretty view. Location was a little far from city centre.
Wonderful stay. We only spent there one night, but the room was very spacious and clean; beds (twin bed room) - very comfortable. A special word is worth saying about the rich and manyfold breakfast served in a very stylish room. We arrived late in the evening and could not find a way to close the window 100% - there was about half cm of "ventillation". Therefore in the room it was rather fresh, but the blamkets wer warm so ok.
I thought it was good value for money in a nice little village. Easy to find but i missed parking facilities or having the parking paid until 10.00 morningtime.
Convenient location Over-priced breakfast. Old, worn mattress. No late bar/restaurant. Only water in mini-bar.
The food was super and the staff was really friendly! Nothing!
Very soft spoken warm people managing the hotel. It is walking distance from the Baarn Railway station which makes it very convenient. The Quadruple / family room is two independent rooms giving both rooms privacy. Very nice experience.
the restaurant is excellent. the rooms are far below the standard of the restaurant. unacceptable: worn out mattress.
Nice, english-speaking personnel. The terrasse of the restaurant is a nice place to have dinner. The hotel is close to the train station. The room is ok but should be renovated further (bathroom). Menus at the restaurant should be in English.
Early checkin time, central location.
The restaurant is excelent.
Atmosphere was very nice, quiet in the area... Everything was ok
Magnificent countryside, ideal for walks and cycling It was distant from the inhabited areas
very polite and friendly staff, they were very pro-actively supporting us to make sure that also our baby was doing fine.
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!
Noice, international standard, with great restaurant and facilites We liked almost everything
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.
Friendly and polite service and helpfulness of all staff
Nice location. Friendly staff Breakfast was overpriced in my opinion
A very nice stay with good memories: correct and friendly staff, pleasant environment
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.
Good city centre location with easy parking (fee) nearby. Hotel has lots of character with nice little garden with excellent Dutch breakfast. No
Close to city center. Basic room facilities was missing in the room like; soap and big body towel.
The breakfast was very good : original and wide choice Normally i always have very good experiences with Booking.com. this hotel does not belong in the list : a had a student room, cold floor (ony tiles), no blankets, shower space not clean, list of drinks but no drinks,and so on. worthless
Wonderful position in the charming old town of Amersfoort. Walk to all the sights and restaurants. Unable to get into our room until 3.30pm but were given cool drinks in the pleasant back garden.
The website could be clearer about the parking arrangements, eg which carpark to use. The carpark to use is the one of theatre Flint and then a few minutes walk.
The staff were very friendly and the room i had was one of the most characterful i have ever had (the building was once a tobacco factory). the location was excellent being in the old part of town and was very quiet. the lack of a buffet breakfast, you are given a breakfast and that is it. a buffet breakfast would greatly enhance any stay at this hotel.
A good location in the centre of Amersfoort and close to the shops. The staff and helpful and friendly and the room was very clean. The curtains are a bit thin and let in alot of light.
room was clean and staff friendly, quite comfortable steep stairs to room ok for weekend
The service was good. The location is excellent, next to the city center. The space in the hotel room was "modest".
good, clean rooms. Nice bathroom was a plus Couldn't pay with american express
Receptionist very helpful and friendly. Room clean and tidy No
the comfort of the room and the space. It was all fine
Good location close to station. Ideal for business in outer Amsterdam area and Hilversum area I felt that the price per room per night could be a little better value.
The friendly and helpful staff and the quiet and peaceful location, plus only a short walk to railway station (which is the the best way to get to A'dam)
free easy parking,room with balcony,good staff, terras in front of the hotel slept above the bar which was noisy
Very small room, not the same of the photos on booking. Very noysing, you can hear other custmers of the hotel speaking in theyr room. Not a good experiense.
Nice and quiet place, easy access from the highway There was a plastic fork under the beds, but overall the room look clean. No hairdry facility...Breakfast relatively expensive, so we prefered to have it somewhere in the city
Nice and relaxed atmosphere . Serving staff helpful and friendly ( we had a little toddler with us) My daughter found the bed matress to soft, but this only a little personal comment, because she enjoyed the rest of the hotel very much. I am a non smoker so I didn't like that it was allowed to smoke in the hotel lobby
We liked just about everything at the hotel -- attractive room, free parking, excellent breakfast buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, plus all the usual cereals, breads, juice, fruit, cold cuts, etc., easy access to Amsterdam via train There was no air conditioning and unusually warm.
We liked the helpfulness of the staff and the fact that the inexperienced waitress in the restaurant not only came to apologise for her mistake in the order but also took the time to ensure that our visit was enjoyable.
Easy on/off from the main road. Good size room. There was nothing of interest walking distance from the hotel. This is mainly a hotel for travelers passing thru.
Nice rooms, restaurant staff were very helpful and professional The receptionist could cheer up a bit
My room was towards the highway................NOISY
Staff in the restaurant. Rooms, corridors, bad smell in the hotel from bars, food.
The location The hotel was not informed about the on line booking, the adres rijksweg is not correct with gps, in the room there were things not working, the distance between the reception and the room is too long when you are overloaded. The diner was correct.
The hotel is very easy to reach from the highway. The rooms were clean. The dinner I had in the restaurant was not good; no value for money. In my room, one of the doors had a big hole in it as if somebody had hit it really hard, which made me feel unsafe.
Large hotelroom and good beds Check the bill before you leave, but the personell handles that properly.
clean and spacious bedroom missed dustbin in bathroom
Friendly and helpful staff The overall ambience of the hotel was cheap- rooms with plastic cups etc
Good value for money - breakfast ok - good room - easy to find - open reception at night none
The staff was very friendly. The room wasn't clean at all.
Ease of check-in, location was near highway, very clean, free and fast wireless.
the Location was the bet the atmosphere in the hotel, more lick budget hotel
Perfect location at the A1, but still very quiet. In the centre of the Netherlands close to Amsterdam, Utrecht and Amersfoort and with perfect highways in all directions. Good wifi connection. Pleasant restaurant with terrace. Good breakfast buffet. Will defenitely book this hotel again!
room had bad maintenance and rate of equipment is much below 3 stars
Price, location, double bed, seperate bedroom door I could not place my suitcase on a stand. There was a problem with the drains that caused a bad localised smell.
great staff; comfy bed not keen on location - a little out of the way
The restaurant! Nice variety of well-prepared dishes & very professional. Mold in the bathroom/shower. One of the first things I look for in a hotel.
i did not like anythink. for the price paid I'd expect also breakfast. Sheets were changed just once 1 seven days because I asked, otherwise they were not going to change.
Very small rooms, badly furnished. Hotel was very noisy.
Free internet connection
It was at a very peaceful area close to a wonderful lake and close to the railway station, only five minutes walk from the hotel. Also the staff had been very very helpful as to how I will move around with the railway they printed me timeschedules for the trains, gave me maps etc. The rooms were perfect exept for the bathroom it was a little dark with a slight smell. But generally the cleaniness of the bathroom was good.
problem with air condition, very hot
Gorgeous rural location, friendly staff and clean, comfortable room Food and drinks a little expensive and the dining room was a bit dark
I like the location as it is near station with direct access to Schiphol Not up to 4 stars! No airco, stuffy rooms
Service, clean room, good breakfast.
Location ...easy walk to station and train ride to amsterdam. New addition very contemporary, spacious and luxurious. Breakfast was exceptional. The only complaint was the lack of electrical outlet in bathroom.
Very silent. Good service. Top class in its class
Good hotel , good surroundings and conveniently situated.
The Reception staff were all friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were comfortable. We only spent two nights and there was nothing that we did not like.
The staff were extremely helpful in solving a problem with the room that we had originally booked.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff
Good location and facilities, wonderful breakfast and spacious room Lack of tea and coffee making facilities in room
Excellent choices for breakfast The wallpaper in the room! Terracotta _ very overpowering
The staff was very helpful, especially Dave the restaurant and beverage manager. He spoke very good english and made our stay there very enjoyable. The restaurant servers were also excellent and spent time to get to know us. It was a wonderful experience and wish we could have stayed longer.
The front office staff were most helpful including supplying a map and directions.First class!!
Staff where friendly and excellent. Internet access was fast and a reasonable charge. Rooms although next to railway line are well sound insulated. Breakfast very expensive. Room could have been cleaner with old sweet wrapper in wardrobe clearly on view.
the fact that the hotel is very new/functional and quiet. Staff was very friendly.
Staff so helpful,beautiful room.
The breakfast outside was spectacular
Good location, near central station and 5 mins walk to the centre
great staff spoke good english,comfy bed,clean good sized bathroom,wonderful breakfast,very close to train station and 5 min. away from downtown lovely Amersfoort.We had dinner there which was pretty good and there is also a decent bar area. No complaints
Very comfortable room. Wi-fi is not for free.
It was quiet & I liked your green policy The room was too cold; there were no instructions as to how to change the airco to more warm air. I would have appreciated knowing that I could check out up to 5pm on Sunday: I accidentally found this out
Exactly what I wanted for a short overnight stay. I arrived at midnight and was checked in promptly (note - the car park isn't immediately obvious at first sight - you have to drive up on to what looks like a pedestrian zone). Very comfortable bed, quiet room despite being next to the lift. And it was astonishing value for money (only paid about 70 euros plus the car park). I didn't try the breakfast as had to leave in the morning. Nothing.
location no value for money-old decoration-carpets- needs badly refurbishing lobby full of smoking people-coffee in lobby only for groups-no coffe machine/kettle in room-no doorman help with suitcase-used to be a classy hotel-
Very clean rooms, excellent breakfast and free covered paking. plenty of shops and bars / cafes in walking distance
It is convenient for my work location. The rooms are basic but comfortable. having twin beds
Great service! Front desk folks are very friendly and helpful. We had a late check in (2am) and we got checked in promptly and friendly. They gave us great tips at the front desk of where to go (in the city and Utrecht), how to take the bus, where to buy bus tickets etc. They stored our luggage after check-in, let us park the car until we were done. Hotel is interesting, different. Room was great and comfortable, bathroom clean. Will definitely recommend and would return in a heart beat. Maybe change the carpets as they were a bit run down.
location Service in restaurant
good location the church clock within ear-shot of my room chiming every hour, 24hrs a day/night
very nice quiet room with free internet from a cable and a nice breakfast
Friendly staff! Good breakfast selection.
Nice hotel, very helpful staff, free private parking, rich enough breakfast There was no computer with free internet service for public use and i had to pay 5 euros for an hour's use, even if i needed it for just 2 minutes
A comfortable hotel, centrally located in a small Dutch village. The hotel offers free parking and free Internet.
everything, including a great variety offered for breakfast!
big rooms and very large beds!!!!! sportarea is missing
Room was spacious and clean
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 friendliness and good service off all staff and the quality of restaurant meals
We are frequent visitors to Holland and this was one of the nicest hotels we have stayed at. No complaints whatsoever.
Room space, wonderful breakfast, quiet place No
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)
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?
Room quite large. Both tube and shower in the room. Limited TV channes choice. View from window (terrace with other rooms ...)
Every thing was very good.
Spacious and quiet room with big breakfast checking out took too much time, too many people tried to exit at the same time, only one staff at the desk (but she was extremely efficient!)
The hotel was very comfortable within a 15min bus trip to the city centre and had free parking which was great if you are travelling by car. Very friendly staff as well.
Friendly and helpful staff, everyone spoke English language. Good range of English and Continental food. Convenient to local shopping area.Beautiful forest and woodland walks just across the road. No
Although the storm of 18 Jan 2007 was raging outside and you could hear it in the bedroom, when you were in the swimming pool or the restaurant you could not hear any wind noise at all.
1. I like the restaurant and the fact serene garden outside the dining area. 2. The staffs are pretty friendly for European standard. 3. Free business center 1. The hotel didn't get 'confirmation' from booking.com, but they were fast enough to provide us the room 2. However, I asked for a double room, non-smoking and I got a triple room, non-smoking. Although I didn't pay extra for the room, it sure looked crowded with the additional bed. 3. Wifi was only available in lobby and not able to connect, so I had to use the business center.
Access with public transportation
My children liked the swimming pool best. The staff were very helpful. We didn't want to have a huge, expensive breakfast, but there was no alternative.
location Small Bar fridge to keep a coolfrink/water cold.
