  • (Travelling alone)
  • on the 4th day of my stay I ve discovered that in the evening my door is not closed as well as some rooms near mine. The cleaning lady didn t close the room doors, so our rooms were opened all day long. I ve reported it to the manager and the rooms were closed on the next day and after, however this is not acceptable.
  • (Travelling alone)
A pleasent stay
  • + I have stayed several times at the hotel.It s one of the best best hotels I ever have stayed at and I have about 100 night s on hotels across Europe a year
  • I left the hotel in the morning 28th of April. After a few hours I called the reception and told them that I would need one more night from April 28th to 29th. It was okay and the reception booked a room for me. Then I arrived in the evening, tired after a long day, I came to the reception, asked for my room but unfortunately, the employee who had made the reservation had made a mistake so there was no room for me and no rooms available so I had to leave again. This was NOT a very experience.
  • * my tip I can only recommend this hotel. It has every thing to make your stay successful.
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + excellent breakfast with wide selection of food and fruit
  • rooms are in need of being refurbished and lighting can be improved
  • (Older couples)
Don't miss breakfast!
  • + We received a free room upgrade. Truly excellent breakfast!
  • Lighting in the room was very poor.
  • * my tip Minutes away from the speedway racing circuit at Veenoord.
  • (Other)
A couple of days at Van Der Valk Emmen
  • + Breakfast excellent. Use of swimmingpool and fitness area.
  • No possibility of regulating room temperature. Mattress not of 4 star hotel quality.
  • * my tip Railroad Steakhouse in Nieuw Amsterdam. Great restaurant, fun atmosphere.
  • (Other)
Perfect stay at this hotel
  • + Nice big room with wirlpool
  • (Families with older children)
Middle of countryside a nice hideaway but lacks in transport amenities
  • + Lovely hotel for weekends but far from any town without a car. had to rent bikes that were very expensive cost me 45 euro for 3 days! clean hotel dining was lovely too. facilities good but lack of transport a minus. jacuzzi bath was a plus. Clean nice and picturesque hotel mostly elderly there
  • The site does not explain lack of transport such as buses and trains. I had to ask how am i suppose to get to trasnport - only then i found out. taxis are expensive. It is really in the middle of nowere and is more for those with cars and weekends away from hustle and bustle.1 of the receptionists was rude and indignant and twice i called for manager. Changed currency and charged 17 euro extra for this? renting bikes for me a rip off.
  • * my tip nice restaurant for romantic getaway.
  • (Other)
Excellent hotel, chosen for proximity to family.
  • + Very comfortable beds in rooms which are very spacious. There is also a lovely pool, and bike hire. I would definitely use this hotel again when visiting my family in Emmen.
  • Seating area outside the front doors could do with cleaning more frequently. On Sunday 25th August there were empty glasses and bottles from the previous evening, and also someone had vomited in by the seats and behind the plant stands, and this was still there at 9.45am. Also it would be better if the rooms were air conditioned!
  • * my tip Breakfast is excellent, something for everyone. Cooked or continental. Tea's, coffee's, fruit juice, milkshakes. Fresh fruit salad. Jam's, meats cheeses etc.
  • (Older couples)
A pleasant surprising hotel
  • + Staff very friendly and helpful. Food excellent
  • * my tip Hotel was a pleasant find, especially the restaurant and food
  • (Friends)
Excellent value
  • + Very god value. Rooms were quiet and comfortable. Excellent breakfast.
  • You really need a car to use this hotel, but if you have a car the location is good and there is excellent free parking.
  • (Other)
Great location for a weekend break
  • + Beds could be more comfortable. Main course meat portions far too large. Chicken curry unappetising. Excellent disabled access.
  • * my tip Very good breakfast choices.
  • (Older couples)
Good value for money from all aspects, we stayed 4 nights instead of 1
  • + Breakfast very good (missing some vegetables) restaurant also very good food,
  • * my tip Good location, nice rooms and bathrooms, good food, friendly staff,
  • (Travelling alone)
Great place to stay!
  • + I have stayed at the Hotel Emmen 4 times and always find the staff very helpful and efficient. The food is always a very good standard and hope to again. The pool and the Gym are a really great extra as well.
  • The toilet on the first night was dirty at the back behind the seat I did not complain and it was rectified on my second night. Why give four coffee sachets and only two creamer sachets?
  • (Young couples)
Jedes mal zufrieden
  • (Travelling alone)
Uitstekend ontbijt!! Portie bitterballen is een klein feestje!
  • + Uitstekend ontbijt!! "Gewoon" een portie bitterballen is een klein feestje om geserveerd te krijgen, mooi aangekleed met kraakverse entourage.
  • (Families with older children)
Comfortable and affordable.
  • + We had booked 2 rooms. The one on the ground level offered a door opening to the garden, where we had our light snacks. With the big windows which offered ample light, the room felt bigger.
  • One of the books we booked was on the 3rd floor, which was dark and only offered a small window and no terrace or balcony.
  • * my tip Request for one of the rooms on the ground floor with a door opening to the garden.
  • (Families with young children)
Hotel with potential, spacious room, but service has to improve.
  • + Spacious room Breakfast
  • Lack of experience with staff, affects the service. Water in bathrooms: hot/cold unstable. Cold or burning hot. Rooms should be cleaner in corners, shelves, bathroom. There is a constant pedantic scent in the bathroom. Not fresh. Restaurant is dirty as well. Every day the chairs had food on the seats. This hotel has more potential.
  • (Travelling alone)
first class value
  • + Service is always excellent, I travel to Holland about six times ayear and now Van der Valk Hotels are always the first I look for. Great value for money.
  • (Travelling alone)
Business trip to Coevorden becoming like one day holiday....
  • + friendly people serving at the reception and restaurant nice food
  • no towels available at the swimming pool, could be nice to inform in the room ( or I missed something) :-)
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Excellent value for money. Breakfast buffet had a large variety and selection.
  • * my tip Larger selection of bar snacks/meals, rather than having to sit down in the restaurant.
  • (Older couples)
  • + Large room and bathroom. Plenty of hanging and storage space. Safe large enough to take iPad.
  • Our room was a very long way away from reception and with 3 pieces of luggage that was difficult for senior travelers. The 'free' wi fi signal was so weak that it made receiving or sending emails impossible.
  • * my tip If you are older, unfit or disabled, request a room close to reception.
  • (Travelling alone)
nice hotel , good location , improvement need in the breakfast buffet
  • + nice and big room , easy access by car.
  • the breakfast buffet is very poor . not A lot of food to choice. and if you dont come early things that end are not refreshing.
  • * my tip at summer ask for room with air conditioning
  • (Groups)
Lovely hotel, but the staff in the restaurant lets it down!
  • + Nice rooms, fantastic bathrooms (in the Deluxe rooms), lovely spa and wellness area. The surroundings make for very nice walks (both we and the dog love Hunebeds!). The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Parking is free and secure, but a car is needed at this hotel as it is in the middle of nowhere - literally!
  • The noise from the corridors could be heard quite well through the walls. The wifi was expensive and did not work very well and despite the outrageous price only one device could be online at a time. The staff in the restaurant really let the whole hotel down! We have been here before and been very satisfied, but this time the staff seemed to be schoolkids with no teacher to oversee them. For four nights straight they constantly forgot orders and did not bring the correct glasses, cutlery etc.
  • (Older couples)
Brits beware, lovely hotel but staff generally seem just to put up wit
  • + Comfortable large room with beautiful whirlpool bath. Food in the restaurant was excellent.
  • Apart from a couple of very polite staff my wife and I found the staff generally rather ignorant and made us feel on numerous ocassions we are foreigners to be put up with. because of this for british persons we would not recommend the hotel. We also felt the cleaners were not very thorough.
  • (Friends)
We really enjoyed our stay, the room and the service were perfect!
  • (Young couples)
van der Valk: you could do much better!
  • + Spacious rooms, close to highway, gym, good breakfast.
  • Standard rooms: mold in shower, dirty cutlery, cigarettes everywhere on the balcony, dining average food, no housekeeping rest of the day if you are in the room and they want to clean, lousy staff
  • (Travelling alone)
Good value at an easily accessible location
  • + Close to highway - easily accessible
  • Close to highway - road noise could be clearly heard in the room
  • (Older couples)
Value for money, spacious well designed rooms and friendly staff
  • + Friendly staff, good beds in spacious rooms (de Luxe), value for money
  • Highway, traffic
  • (Other)
Its very okay specially for the price and the quality
  • (Young couples)
Relaxing, Quiet and Luxury
  • + The hotel was very relaxing, the swimming pool was great, breakfast buffet had a wide selection of different foods and the staff were extremely friendly. They were great about our little dog and the room was kept neat and clean! The food served in the restaurant was of high quality and at very reasonable prices. We found that the internet prices were a bit steep - if you are staying more than 2 days it is worth buying access for a week!! (1 day = €16, 1 week = €25!)
  • No room service menu in the room which made ordering very complicated. Apparently it is hotel policy to not have the menu in the rooms which was a bit odd! The TV showed mainly Dutch channels - luckily with BBC and Discovery, but very limited choice if you do not speak Dutch! All the tourist information was only available in Dutch which made it seem like the hotel caters mainly for Dutch speaking customers.
  • (Families with young children)
Best price/quality rate and very good restaurant
  • + Very plesant stay. Staff very attentive and proffesional
  • (Travelling alone)
Perfect breakfast, but no free web access
  • + The breakfast is excellent. Incredible variation and very good
  • Internet access was available, but relatively expensive. In a hotel such as this, which is frequented by many business visitors, free web access should be a standard service.
  • (Other)
Great value great location
  • + Great hotel, great location
  • (Travelling alone)
Good value in Emmen
  • + Excellent room for a reasonable price
  • VERY busy on Sunday because of Sunday buffet. No room in restaurant until 20.30 but the food was worth the price
  • (Older couples)
  • + comferble and luxery
  • This time not really clean and the service ad desk Terrible normal is match better.
  • (Friends)
  • + Good clean rooms, easy check in, friendly staff
  • bar was closed for private party
  • (Young couples)
  • + Very nice hotel! High quality! Very good breakfast and dinner facilities. Location perfect if you want to go for a nice weekend out!
  • The staff was not aware of the discount price. We had to show the confirmation email by checkin and checkout. They had a totally different price in their system. Luckely we took the confirmation which stated the last minute price. This was the only minus point.
  • (Friends)
  • + Very very good hotel. For us: 5 stars!!! The breakfast was outstanding! We will be back =))
  • No minus points
  • (Older couples)
  • + But we still managed to have a wonderful time...
  • We stayed between Christmas and New Year and on New Years Eve everything closed down at 6pm. A bit disappointing especially as the hotel location meant it was virtually impossible to go anywhere else to celebrate New Year.
