Loads for children to do in the swimming pool and play room. The staff were helpful and I was not bothered about the proximity of my room to the dining area and the noise that other people have complained about. However what killed it for me was the absolutely extortionate prices charged for a buffet meal. It would have been...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 April 2017 via mobile

The hotel is close to kukenhof (not sure how to spell it) to see all the tulips and flowers and maybe 20 min from downtown Amsterdam. The hotel itself is great with pool and kids play area. The restaurant was good and it was a buffet style which is great for us so my 2 year old can get food...

We stayed here for three nights to visit local attractions. The hotel was very comfortable with an unusual layout. There was a glass roofed central atrium which housed the dining room. Very spacious and attractive with a fish pool in the centre. Lots of ferns and exotic plants. We had an executive room on the 3rd floor overlooking the carpark....

Well, this one is hard.. On one hand, the staff is super. Everyone is so nice and helpful. We got everything we needed at the most professional and polite way. So, the hotel manager should be satisfied...(not necessarily from our experience of course, but generally speaking...) However, on the other hand. The hotel looks old and not updated. Like the...

The hotel is centrally located for most of the tourist attractions in Holland and that's the best point about it. Ask for an outside room. The ones inside the hotel are very noisy because the atrium amplifies screaming kids and noisy guests in the restaurant. Internet is also intermittent and not reliable so no good for business people. Breakfast had...

The hotel is located around 30 minute walk from the train station and you really need to have google maps to guide you through. You can follow the cycling path which leads to the train station but might not be a kind thing to do considering it is only meant for bicycles. The rooms are comfortable with good WiFi connectivity...

This is a big and rather expensive place, given that its situated in the middle of nowhere. Frankly, I hated it. Surprised that my distinguished travel agent - Carlson Wagonlit would recommend it. I would recommend staying in the city.

Hotel is dated and a little strange with its layout having large internal and external windows in all rooms. The leisure facilities are good as is the food. Staff in the bar are very good and friendly.
