Efteling Hotel is a magical place close to the Efteling Park. Nice staff, wonderful room and magical atmosphere! The breakfast was delicious and we had choice even if we are vegans. We'll turn back surely!!!

my two daughters, myself and my 7 year old granddaughter have just returned from a wonderful experience, we stayed in the Snow White themed room which was magical. The staff in the hotel and theme park were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel and in my opinion and if you enjoy fairy stories it is great for...

Stayed in bosrijk, walked to hotel for a few drinks. Good value and excellent staff. Kids play area beside the bar, so some kids still around late in the evening. Good food and a tv for watching sports. As far as I know there are no other pubs in kaatsheuvel.

This was a great location for accessing the theme park. The Efteling hotel is best suited for younger children. My granddaughter is 12 years old and we both felt some of the things were for younger kids. The hotel has a cute theme but some areas could use a facelift. The outside and the entrance are a bit tired. So...

Efteling is not well known in the U.K so I shouldn't really tell anyone just how good it is here. My family and I have stayed here 2 and 1/2 years before so we knew what to expect. We came in the February half term and if like me you get the ferry to the Hook of Holland you should...

We went with the whole familie it was Nice. The kids loved dinner time when the fairytale figures came to the table. The food was okay. The rooms were clean. We stayed for 4 days but That is too long for me. 2 days for the park is more then enough for me :)

The hotel was a fairytale to walk into, from the moment the doors opened. What a wonderful experience for us as a family. We checked in early, and the hotel held our luggage for us, as we then went in and experienced Efteling park. When we came back, we were given our room key, and headed up to our beautiful...

We visit the Efteling every other year or so, and decided to stay overnight this time. As time was limited we opted for the hotel instead of the Bosrijk Village, where there is a minimum stay of 2 nights. The hotel displays the same attention to detail as the theme park, and families with kids will feel very welcome here....

The hotel is ok, nothing amazing to say but the staff is nice. The only thing me and my husband were really disappointed about is the fact that the breakfast is beyond unhealthy, full of sugary things and not even one single non-dairy milk. I am not allergic but I don't drink milk for many years now so I had...
