4 star hotel, a really great deal, really nice and kid friendly, kids show with the locals stars aka the Efteling cartoons characters. Price are the cheapest for a theme park hostel and I've been in quite a few !

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...

My Wife booked and planned the visit to Efteling as a surprise for my 30th Birthday. We stayed in the circus suite and had an amazing time both in the hotel and at the Theme Park itself. Travelling with our young daughter the rooms and hotel are very accommodating Can not wait to visit again!

Just 1 mile away is the Bosrijk holiday village - peaceful woodland retreat. Very friendly staff and hotel guests can use the pool here- great for children with a small Rapids area, jacuzzi and water play areas. There are also two small pools (15cm and 35cm) complete with play equipment for really tiny ones. Staff all speak English and are...

Our daughter is confined to a wheelchair so we find it extremely difficult to travel and find suitable accommodation. From the very first contact with the Efteling Hotel they were extremely accommodating and helpful. We had two adjoining rooms with interconnecting doors, both rooms were very clean and spacious. One room had a double and two single beds, the other...

This hotel did meet our expectations. It is at walking distance from the park itself. If you do an overnight stay here you are allowed to enter the theme park half an hour earlier so you can beat the crowds a bit for the more exciting rides. There is free parking around the hotel. The rooms are tidy and clean....
