Rooms are clean and spacious. Staffs were kind. Easy to reach by car. Cost for the breakfast, particularly for kids. The others are all satisfied.
Breakfast was very good with comfortable selfservice. breakfast room was to dark on this raining day
The room. Still smoking facilities. The food The waiters in the restaurant very unexperienced.
Perfect Van der Valk service. It was a very nice surprise to find a swimming pool inside.
a perfect place to meet after a long business day and meet with friends
Excellent room and good value for money
spacious and comfortable room, excellent breakfast information of maximum persons in a room is not clear for each package
All personnel at front desk, horeca & cleaning staff were very pleasant and friendly. They were also very clean & neatly dressed. The bed wasn't as comfortable as Sofitel in Gent where we had the best sleep in any hotel in more than 10 yrs. experience.
The comfort and facilities were excellent value for money.
Staff is very friendly, helpfull ands service driven.
excellent all round hotel. very relaxing when coming back from assen tt. would use again. restaurant closing at nine.
Cool temperature in the room. Central heating not functionning. No possibility to get a mobil electric heating. No reaction of the personal
One of the few hotels close to Assen motor racing circuit which didn't double its prices for the weekend when there was bike racing on. Large room.
front desk was helpful and room was clean and maintained Breakfast staff did not restock food. Hot food was empty. service in this area needs to improve. I've stayed here many times and food and service has declined. Did not have supply in case of forgotten items
Comfortable functonal hotel. About 15 minutes walk from the town centre. Nearby bus stop.
Everyone was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and filling.
Booked a family room package with dinner and entry to the Emmen Zoo. Excellent service provided for a family with small children. Hotel is on walking distance to Emmen Zoo. Hotel restaurant was very good. Lots of parking space.
No TV access in the room unless with a special TV key ?
Excellent and very helpful staff. Great location for touring Emmen. Exterior grounds were in rough shape...Interior of hotel was great in all respects!
it was close to everywhere i wanted to get to on business, very hand
I like the animal theme in this hotel, I was totally blown away by the food din the restaurant I went for the Chefs reccommendations and my taste buds were electrified
Good food, Helpfull staff. Lighting in the bathroom was poor
I was staying there for a buisness purpose and since the hotel was near the town centre I choose it. It is a good hotel in general and you can be in the centre of the tow within 15 minutes walking. I requested a room with an AC and one I checked in to my room it didn't contain one, so I requested to change my room and they did, but after one day they shiffted me again because of water leakage problem in some of the rooms!! Another thing is the internet service, they have a T-mobile hot spot in the hotel and the prices are not that cheap, so I feal it would be better if they provided a connection from the hotel itself either free of charge of with differrent prices.
The hotel has friendly staff, is close to city centre and Zoo. Rooms were clean and breakfast was good.
Clean, unassuming but comfortable hotel. We arrived for a rally, and when multiple visitors wanted to have breakfast 30 minutes before normal times, they made an effort to ensure that the breakfast buffet was fully ready at that earlier time.
The room was comfortable with good shower and bath facilities. It was clean and adequate.
Large, very good beds. Clean. Quiet rural area. No attention was given to defects in the room that we had submitted.
Polite staff, espresso machine in each room, good bathrooms and pleasant grounds. Good for a short break. No option of a larger room or mini suite: the workspace/desk was too small for a longer stay and there was no room wifi. The gym equipment was limited, especially for weight training, and the menu was similarly limited. Not good for a longer stay or business use - but this is not its intended target market.
The large rooms in a rural setting was a treat. The food was excellent and the pool and sauna exceptional
Top quality, helpful staff in beautiful setting
The pool and the surroundings were really great. I didn't stay long enough to enjoy the rest of the facilities, including the restaurant.
everything The extractor fan (afzuigsystem?) in the room does not switch off so it was very difficult to sleep. There is also a light switch attached to the bed which has an internal glow light (I guess so that you can see it in the dark). This also stays on all night making it even more difficult to sleep. They are little things but customers having very little sleep is not good for the hotels reputation.
We had a lovely stay and enjoyed it very much. The Staff was very freindly and proffesionel.
Restaurant food is excellent.
Hotel has changed management. No problem. However, it would have been better if regular customers were informed (this website?). No bathrobe etc., Everything a little less luxurious. Free Internet was gone. No sorry from personnel.
Appointments were excellent Staff needs training and management is terrible
My stay at the hotel was very short (one night), but the staf I talked to was very nice and they gave us hot water for tea to our travel home for free.
Excellent service and hospitality from manager Mrs. Renate Vink and her staff. Been a regular at Hotel Buxus for the last 6 years or so thanks to the annual Superbike and Supersport races in nearby Assen. Will be back again next year so Mrs. Renate Vink has already marked me down in her calendar.
The quietness and relax surrounding
Nice place to stay. We will visit them next year during Superbikes Weekend in Assen!!! None
Nice and friendly staff. Nice restaurant. Screaming guests in the middle of the night. Small tv at large distance of the bed.
The restaurant was very good and popular. The restaurant was non-smoking - this meant that the smokers stood outside to smoke. The problem was this is right outside the door to room 1 which was the room that I was in.
Meals were realy great
It was very nice to have the stores and the zoo so nearby as we did not have a car. We were visiting family and there were many places available to go and have a cup of tea. We enjoyed the hotel restaurant as well. Breakfast was nice. There was noise at night as people walked by outside.
Friendliness of staff
Thought the hotel was very good value for money. the staff were very accommodating, putting breakfast on early especially so we could get to the TT race on time, and check out early. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Bar/restaurant downstairs was very good, especially the burger!
position to zoo, shops & restaurants room very hot
Good location, friendly staff, good value for money
Very helpful staff. Excellent food. Hotel was awkward to find as I did not download a suitable map (!) but a phone call soon got me there.
Very friendly, helpful, multilingual staff. The room was comfortable with plenty of space for the three of us. The location is perfect, right in the center of Emmen, with many restaurants, frequent farmers markets, right by the entrance to the zoo, close to the train and bus station, and convenient to walking and biking paths to the surrounding countryside. Airconditioning has yet to be discovered in Holland.
Friendly service, nice bathroom with bath and nice breakfast.
Great central location, only a short walk to the zoo and train station
Location, free Wi-Fi, nice staff, very tasty coffee for breakfast)
Location Unhelpfull management/Staff. Noisy from 6am. Closing the bar and grill early 3 out of 4 nights. We just got given the keys to the rooms and never got told any times for breakfast,lunch or even dinner times we had to ask for all. Hardly ever spoken to other than good morning. We all felt like we were an inconvieniance to the hotel and at an average of 50 euros per eveng for a basic room and breakfast you would expect a little courtesey and a functioning bar and grill.
Comfortable and reasonably well equipped room. A real "small village" hotel. Good breakfast and also lunch could be made. Very basic, no minibar. A used towel and soap in bathroom.
Very good price. Friendly and flexible staff. Quiet during the night. I could not use the shower in my room since the water didn't flow as it should through the hole in the floor. I had to shower sitting down in the bathtub.
A small family run hotel, the staff were very friendly and accomodating.
good location.sat nav went straight to it.good food,drink and room
We had a very relaxing stay and an excellent meal. Staff were extremely attentive and helpful. Hotel itself is nicely detailed. Difficult to find any faults
Food was excellent. Staff in restaurant and outdoor patio were superb. Laundry was submitted in the laundry bag and returned crumpled in the same bag. If it could not be ironed then I felt it could at least be folded properly.
The restaurant! Somewhat noisy rooms, tiles outside door contribute besides too early cleaning staff. Ah: weekend breakfast until 10:30, weekdays untill 9:30 but easily extended if not too busy.
A very quaint yet elegant hotel in Odoorn,Netherlands. The facility was so comfortable with a wonderful staff that was willing to go above and beyond to help you. Don't look for food outside the hotel as the restaurant was wonderful and the "chef's surprise" was amazing.
the hotel was perfect in every way. staff . location. etc .etc
Very freindly atmosphere and good service It will be good for the guests, if they were informed, that they have to order meal from the restauration in the evening forwards - before 1200.
It's cozy, friendly atmosphere and staff. Breakfast is excellent. The staff is attentive and fast, even late in the evening. The beds are just a little bit too short for me: I'm 1m96 (almost 6'6"). The city of Exloo should be very much ashamed of themselves for letting the works on the roads be delayed like this. The hotel is difficult to be reached and the streets are a mess and should be fixed sooner than later. Fortunaltely, the hotel staff handles all related problems with care.
Nice small hotel, friendly people. Just 1 thing missing: hairdryer.
Everything was perfect, very nice and romantic place for relaxing and spending time faraway from the real city life
The location of the facility right in the village was just perfect and added to our enjoyment of our stay. The bed was too short and too narrow for two normal people. The bedding was very poor. There was no mattress cover just a very thin worn bed sheet. Not sanitary as it should be.
Very friendly and welcoming staff, great food, clean and tidy. Would have been nice to have tea/coffee facilities in the rooms
very friendly staff and really excellent, value-for-money food.
Location Breakfast, no tea or coffee making facilities, we stayed for four nights and room was not cleaned once during our stay nor did we have clean towels each day
Really sweet staff, very good service and very nice breakfast. The hotel looks beautiful and the area is perfect to relax. The curtains of the bedrooms are too thin so you awake at 6h in the morning with too much light in the room and the windows don't isolate enough, so you hear the birds singing really loud and all the time, so you can't sleep anymore. The pillows are very uncomfortable, I had pain in my neck for some days after.
The personal approach you get in a truly family run place. A little bit too informal, family life spilling into the hotel.. kids eating soft boiled eggs in the reception.
Very relaxed and informal, location in countryside (farm), nice dinner, I assume great for families with kids. Bedrooms a bit oldfashioned but okay.
Very friendly host, nice rooms, beautiful scenery.
We loved our stay, the room was spacious with a great bathroom, and the hotel itself is a beautiful old farmhouse in the Drenthe countryside. The owners were very friendly and happy to provide information about the area without being in your face. Plenty of nice villages and countryside nearby, ideal for a relaxing vacation.
the hospetality, the room, the service and the serenety no
Everything. We would definitely stay there again. No
1. " silence is golden" 2. TV had Belgian programs TV1 and Canvas nothing
clean, big rooms; good beds; enough information about the village, like restaurants and events; welcoming staff breakfast could be better
the hospitality, the service of the land-lady
Rustic atmosphere Walls were a bit thin
