Nice hotel, the rooms are quiet and spacious - it is a bit odd that all rooms share a single open balcony. Not too sure about the consequences for privacy. Ths reataurant is at the van der Valk standard - good. Breakfast was good although the buffet area is cramped and congested if the hotel is full. Staff are friendly...

I had a good stay. Staff was responsive and pleasant and room was clean. Being from the States, the balcony was different, the balcony was spread across the entire floor. Good breakfast variety and restaurant has good menu, food was good. I would recommend the hotel.

This hotel ticked all the boxes for us: it is clean, quiet, lovely service, nice breakfast and up to date. We only have been here one night because we visited a marriage, so we have no idea how well it is located with respect to the city. The price was more than fair and the only surprise was the fact...

Very good hotel in Drachten,Friesland Quiet location, free parking space and good food. The rooms are spacious and clean. We stayed for a weekend and took the "eilanden arrangement". We could choose between Ameland and Schiermonnikoog. We choose Ameland. Nice island with excellent cycle routes.

Van der Valk Hotel Drachten is my preferred hotel for a stay in the northern area of the Netherlands. And not only for the serious discounts offered on specialized web sites; this hotel has now every advantage of a 4 star establishment. After selecting a free parking space on the large parking lot, and checking in, a nice, compact room...

I got a good room for an economic price. The bathroom was very large with an open shower, lots of floor space and lowered utilities, so I assumed that it was also for invalids. My room was of a very functional size with a very comfy bed. The area was very quiet. They have a very big parking lot and...
