Horst 31, Kaatsheuvel Map 1.6 km (At the Efteling Theme Park)

Score of 388 reviews: 8.6

The Efteling Hotel is entirely in keeping with a visit to the Efteling theme park. You're even allowed admission to the Efteling 15 minutes prior to the park's official opening times by means of a special gate; plus several attractions will already be open for you at this point. The Efteling lies right next to the hotel. This hotel is perfect for children as it exudes the magical atmosphere of a world of wonders. And in summer you can take a seat on the hotel's outdoor terrace after a lovely day at the Efteling theme park, which is open 365 days a year.

This fairytale world is also reflected in the hotel rooms. All rooms include facilities such as a themed bathroom, a television, a safe and air conditioning. Children will have a great time in the colourful Play Castle, which offers all sorts of games and activities. Small adjustments have been made throughout the hotel for children. For instance, there are a number of special children's toilets and little steps in the bathroom.

  • (Travelling alone)
  • + J ai beaucoup apprécié mon séjour à l hôtel Efteling où j avais déjà séjourné l année dernière. Et surtout la gentillesse à la réception pour aider les visiteurs....
  • Une petite chose qui était moins bien que durant mon séjour de juillet 2014. La salle du petit déjeuner était fort sombre, presque pas d éclairage... Aussi, l année dernière on pouvait consommer un plat chaud au bar de l hôtel.. Les plats pouvant être consommés au bar ont été supprimés de la carte et il reste juste les menus de la carte du restaurant principal... qui ne sont évidemment pas du tout dans le même ordre de prix... Je l ai signalé à l accueil et ils m ont confi

The hotel is beautiful. The scenery is gorgeous.
  • + Excellent service - the crew is very friendly (actually all Dutch people are) and ready to help you in any way. Very comfortable and large beds. Tranquil atmosphere. Non smoking hotel. Definitely, the perfect place to stay if you want to visit the Efteling Park.
  • The minus point is that it is a little expensive. But still, we ve got a deal for 2 nights-stay in the hotel with 3 entrances to the park.
  • * my tip I recommend the hotel to whoever wants to visit the Efteling Park. It s next to the park. So, if you feel exhausted and want to rest in the middle of the day - especially, if you have young children - the hotel is very convenient. Good Brasserie pub - in Breda village some kilometers near Efteling.
  • (Families with young children)
Magical efteling
  • + Beautiful hotel friendly staff value for money and great entertainment
  • Nothing no negative points
  • * my tip There is everything available for children and adults A swimming pool would be a great addition
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Very nice hotel, great especially for kids. Super close to the park, not the main entrance, so you will miss the huge entrance, but you can walk there later. Nice rooms, with little surprises for the little ones. Great breakfast, also a lot for kids
  • The babybed was a bit weak (we did not use it, our 3 year old wanted to sleep in a big bed
  • * my tip Go early in the morning, leave your things in the car or storage until your room is done, and join the park. At about 15.00 you can go back to the hotel and bring your things in your room. And back to the park, so you don t miss to much of the park......so much to see (2days are almost to short)
  • (Families with young children)
  • + very nice hotel, children-friendly, clean and spacious rooms
  • no vegetables served for breakfast, which was otherwise excellent
  • (Other)
  • a bit cold during night
  • (Families with young children)
Great to stay for Eftelilng Park Visit
  • + Rooms are good size, just steps to efteling park, resturant taste's too good and above all breakfast is awesome.
  • Not close to local markets to shop arround.
  • * my tip Use this hotel if you are going solely for Efteling Park.
  • (Families with young children)
My daughter wants to come again to Eftling and to this hotel
  • + Child's dream comes true in this hotel. Very nicly smiling people. Great team put up quality show in the lobby. Breakfast was designed for kids. Beautiful Wonder Water suite. Plenty of candy. Good bar with nice choise of beer for parents.
  • Don't see any. It was just perfect. People of Nederlands should be proud of the Eftling. Thanks.
  • (Families with young children)
a great experience for the young and old
  • + this is the second year my family and i have stayed at the hotel and enjoyed every minute of it its great to find a hotel which is really child freindly keep up the good work
  • it would be good if the park was open a little later at the begining of july also you could change the menu for room service as it was the same as last year
  • (Travelling alone)
Hôtel de conte de fée :)
  • + The room is very nice !
  • Not french friendly hotel
  • (Families with older children)
Gewoonweg helemaal leuk
  • + Alles was super. Wij komen zeker nog een keertje logeren maar misschien dan een thema-kamer proberen.
  • Dit zijn er niet!
  • (Families with young children)
Child friendly hotel close to Efteling amusement park
  • + Very friendly and helpfull staff especially towards the children, thank you - very good restaurant and service
  • no window in the bathroom - very dark bathroom with poor light fittings
  • (Young couples)
Going to Efterling Park? This is the place to stay...
  • + If you wish to visit de Efterling Park then this hotel is perfectly situated nearby. If you can call ahead try to reserve the themed suites they offer, worth the money for a bit of magic in your stay. My girlfriend is a celiac and cannot eat gluten, the hotel restaurant was very good at providing glten free food. ***** Service for gluten free.
  • When the park closes at 6 find out if there is a quicker way back to the hotel.
  • (Families with young children)
Excellent hotel to stay for Efteling Park!!
  • + very child-friendly hotel, playroom inside the hotel as well as outside playground. received small gifts for children. excellent location for Efteling amusement park. food was great too!
  • the room was small and a bit old but I highly recommend if you are to go to the Efteling park as it is very convinient and you will get special offer!!
  • (Families with young children)
comfortable nights at efteling
  • + being close to rides and being able to get in before other guests
  • gate to hotel at playground closing at 6.30 should stay open till 7 to allow time to walk out at leisure
  • (Families with older children)
Great location if visiting the amusement park.
  • + Perfect for a day or 2 at the park.
  • The beds were very soft and caused us to sink into the middle. It's very dated and could do with a big update.
  • (Families with young children)
A great alternative to Disneyland
  • + A comfortable and friendly place to stay with children which is ideally located for access to the Efteling theme park. The hotel is well served by regular local buses that take you to either of the nearest major train stations.
  • The hotel and theme park are much busier on Fridays and weekends and the breakfast service is clearly under pressure on these days. Basic breakfast items often temporarily run out and you can find yourself waiting around before they are replenished.
  • (Families with young children)
Convenient and Comfortable
  • + Close proximity to the Efteling. Entrance to the Efteling via private gate and 15 minutes before the park's opening time. Very child orientated.
  • (Families with young children)
Very nice Hotel
  • Breakfast buffet had very limited selection and quality of food was not what I would have expected from a 4* Hotel.
  • (Families with young children)
Fantastic for the whole family!!
  • + Amazing hotel, even the 'basic' rooms are full of character and contain far more facilities for the price. We got a VERY good deal through this website. Brilliant play area by restaurant, indoor and outdoor. Food was superb. Go outside in the dark and make sure you get photos of the hotel lit up at night, it is stunning.
  • No minus points for hotel unless you count very long wait for check in/out at busy times but hey, just go when it's quiet! One tip for families visiting Efteling park - MAKE SURE you find out when 'family' days are on, and avoid the first 2 weeks in July when the Dutch schools finish, we managed to go on a hideously busy day when security confirmed there were 6000 youths, fights, trouble, complaints...lots of the park was spoiled for us and our poor little boys asking when they could leave! Efteling on any other day is WONDERFUL. Ok so this is not linked to the wonderful hotel but DO bear this in mind!!
  • (Families with older children)
Max out your stay at this convenient hotel
  • + Great theme hotel - nice addition to the park
  • While we were allowed in the park at 9:45 - none of the major rides were open yet.Bit of a disappointment.
  • (Families with young children)
A good qaulity, well situated hotel with very freindly staff.
  • + Nice, freindly and helpful staff as always, location great for the park. The hotel is always clean, tidy and welcoming. The Hotel is well situated for travelling to and from Calais, easy and straightforward to find by road thus making the holiday completly stress free.
  • The menu in the main resturant is not reallu ideal for families and very pricey. The bar area was good as the children can play in the playroom whilst you watch them, the food offered bettervalue but the menu is not varied that much and hasn't changed at all in over 3 years of visiting. One or two different meals would make a big difference as chips with everything or salad gets a little much after 2 nights. The bar staff are very helpful and welcoming though particularly Harold and Henry!
  • (Families with young children)
  • + The hotel is perfectly located and was really in keeping with the whole Efteling experience. The characters who entertained the children at breakfast time were excellent and got our visit to the park off to a magical start.
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Good ambient conditions
  • Bed sheets had stains and dirty marks.
  • (Families with young children)
  • A rather expensive hotel, due to the location in/near the Efteling park.
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Right next to the Efteling Park; provides early and special access to the park for it's guests. For the children, the experience starts even before they get to the park.
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Very nice atmosphere, very nice animators in the lobby. Great for children (and also adults)
  • (Older couples)
  • + wonderful and very comfortable rooms very pleasant pub a so nice athmosphere thank you for this stay at your location
  • it would much appreciated if you could initiate any kind of nice activity in the hotel at evening time
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Large, Air conditioned room
  • lack of inexpensive meal options
  • (Young couples)
  • + Atmosphere! Nice decoration everywhere, even in the bathroom. Special fairy-tale channel on TV in room. Excellent restaurant downstairs. Bathroom had a gift basket with soaps and shampoos -- nice solution to the soap-stealing problem!
  • The advertised internet connectivity turned out to be pay terminals in the lobby, no network in the rooms. The room safe was too small to hold a laptop. Other guests were a bit noisy at night.
