  • (Older couples)
Great stay, good location, helpful staff
  • + Well equipped hotel with helpful staff and good facilities.
  • Housekeeping having a bad week? Pizza boxes uncollected from outside rooms.
  • * my tip Great for children, easy to get to places even when leaving car at the hotel. 20 minute walk to town centre, 7 minutes on a bike!
9.4
  • (Families with young children)
1st Holiday Inn in Europe and arguably still one of the best.
  • + Beyond my expectations. Having stayed at many Holiday Inns around the world this must rank as one of the best. Staff were marvellous, children's amenities incredible, please change nothing except a kettle in the bedroom would be nice. I will definitely return with my family and recommend hotel to all.
  • No kettle in the bedroom
  • * my tip Good restaurant and exceptional service. Fantastice for keeping children/grandchildren occupied. Take a kettle. Public transport is available but own car preferable. Really good location for Leiden, European Space Expo, flowers of course, Beaches, General sightseeing around the canals of Holland.
9.0
  • (Older couples)
A very agreable stay
  • + The patio and breakfast are excellent. Sauna and swimming pool are the good points
  • Lack of indications to reach the hotel from the highway and from the town
  • * my tip the breakfast in the patio is a plesure
9.2
  • (Friends)
The perfect place to spend an post-exam weekend
  • + - Super comfort, especially the beds with the 4 pillows - Friendly People - Free Wifi and free access to the swimming pool - lovely TV with a variety of channels - Incredible service - Amazing breakfast - Tasty cocktails + we loved the pizza from room service -...
  • - There are tons of mirrors in the bathroom, but none in the room, so that it wasn't an option to put on make up while someone is using the bathroom. I also would have liked a socket in the bathroom. Now it was just for shaving, so I couldn't use my hair straightner. - Bar was rather expensive - Interior is old-fashioned and tasteless, especially in the dining area...
  • * my tip I recommend 'Malle Jan' in the city centre. Cosy, friendly and incredible food.
9.2
  • (Families with young children)
Great vacation, we already want to come again.
  • + Very good service The hotel team very nice and hospitable Great facilities (swimming pooll ....)

6.2
  • (Travelling alone)
Good hotel but could be made better with more realistic pricing.
  • + Good size room. Food. Atmosphere. Good parking facilities. Choice of pillows. Wifi in the room had good speed.
  • Expensive bar prices. Expensive wifi. Cold room & no heater working. Expensive laundry costs. Had a room with its own external door; cold wind blew through the gaps. TV reliability (cable supply broken). Choice of tv films expensive & per viewing (not 24 hr watch anything deals found at Crown Plaza).
7.2
  • (Travelling alone)
Good value, service and tropical-themed setting
  • + clean, pleasant rooms, excellent tropical-themed setting around a pond/restaurant with pool and spa as extras.
  • seemed to be no way to tell cleaning staff that I did not want to be disturbed before 11.45am on checkout day -- even though I answered the door once I then came back after breakfast and found one of them going through my room cleaning it up --- there should be a system ('do not disturbs') that prevents this - it is annoying for both parties. Also there must be a better way to/from the center than following the main road -- I had to walk through long wet grass and/or run across highways at one point.
7.8
  • (Families with young children)
rooms are quire far from the majesty of the entrance
  • + hall and commons area with lot of space easy parking easy access to the hotel great bathroom good area for children architecture
  • lack of natural light in the room: to stay in privacy need to close the curtains but in this way there is no light in the room. Room noisy.

Value for money
4.4
  • (Families with older children)
Needs a face lift as showing its age!
  • + Very clean room and nice breakfast and good location.
  • Lumpy beds, needs a bit of a face lift as looks abit like a motel. Price was different to what I thought as had to pay for breakfast for my daughter who was 13, not sure if this is correct?
7.6
  • (Young couples)
Ok, but the service in the restaurant needs improvement.
  • + Great Dinner and Breakfast Buffet. Friendly Bar & Reception service personal. Room was fine and clean.
  • Very unprofessional service personal in the restaurant. It took 20min of waiting and 3 reminders to get our ordered drinks. Personal looks more like frustrated students then waiters.
7.4
  • (Travelling alone)
Adequate and comfortable.
  • + The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was adequate and comfortable. Overall the hotel was clean and in good order with some nice decorative features.
  • A bit pricey for what it was and a little out of the way. Not much atmosphere and the spaces were too large. It felt empty dispite the number of people there.
7.8
  • (Older couples)
Generall y a good experience
  • + Great Sports facilities. Excellent breakfast and dinner buffet. Comfortable room. Good service in both. Nice public areas.
  • Expensive internet. Although a child friendly resort, perhaps they could consider the pool area to be quieter after 9.00 p.m.
10.0
  • (Families with young children)
Fabulous Stay!
  • + Great hotel, and a great value for a family!
  • None!
8.8
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Quiet, child-friendly, very good breakfast buffet
  • No window to the outside, warm (non-UHT) milk for children would be a plus
7.6
  • (Young couples)
Nice and relax weekend
  • + Very nice bar (but a bit expensif for the cocktails), swimmingpool, breakfast.
  • A bit far from the train station.
9.8
  • (Older couples)
A good break
  • + Swimming pool
9.2
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Italian buffet was very good.
7.8
  • (Families with young children)
Very good package
  • + Very good value for money. Very good breakfast buffet included in the package. It was very busy with families, so obviously this is a good package - would have been nicer if it would have been quieter, but I guess the one implements the other. Obviously this impacts service at dinner also. Our order was forgotten. Then again - fair price!
  • An industrial estate is not an ideal location for any family outing. Therefore a 4. Change room for the pool is far to cramped for the size of the pool (and the amount of people present).
10.0
  • (Young couples)
  • + excellent hotel. better standard than expected for a holiday inn. no complaints. would stay again.

A comfortable and enjoyable stay
7.8
  • (Older couples)
Good rooms, poor ambience, hotel for young children
  • + Nice rooms very well designed and well equipped
  • Noise from the atrium 9am to 9pm is unbelievable. Buffet meals with no service at Euro 30 to 32 are extremely expensive - in Brussels we paid Euros 25 for full service 4-star hotel restaurant of far better quality. Children under 12 halve the price to Euros 15, about what they are worth.
8.2
  • (Travelling alone)
Holiday Inn hotel Leiden
  • + For instance, The rooms, buffet diner and the giftshop are excellent.
  • The taxi-service, located far outside the hotel, is not accurate.
9.4
  • (Families with older children)
Excellent Service & Facilities
  • + Friendly staff, clean rooms and linen Quiet location Excellent breakfast buffet Good facilities Highly recommended
  • Air con broke down on second day, but duty manager was very good and found us a new room. Even moved all our luggage for us
7.6
  • (Families with older children)
  • + Nice, clean, comfortable rooms, awesome breakfast, beautiful atrium area, free parking, within driving distance of Keukenhof and the beaches, downtown Leiden is within driving distance and looks like it has good night life and restaurant selection. Children and pet friendly =)
  • Dinner prices are extremely high. We could not find any other restaurants or facilities within walking distance. Parking in downtown Leiden is an issue. Front desk staff were cordial but not friendly or welcoming. Fitness room only open limited hours.
8.0
  • (Young couples)
  • + Very courteous, nice personel. Excellent breakfast buffet. As newly weds we got a very kind message on the television, a nice complementary bottle of wine and refreshments. Good size bed.
  • Windows cannot be opened (goes for all rooms), airconditioning didnt work in our room.
9.2
  • (Families with young children)
  • + The free shuttle to the train station. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The play area was nice with an assortment of different activities for various ages. The layout of the rooms was very nice. Knowledgable, friendly and helpful staff. It was a wonderful experience at the hotel.
  • We did not know about the shuttle to the hotel until after we arrived. I cannot remember seeing it on the website, though I could have overlooked it.
6.4
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Fantastic buffet breakfast and nice pool facilities plus good play area for kids
  • Rather a trek to get into town and although air conditioned the room did not have any access to fresh air, i.e. an outside window.
8.8
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Great stay nothing to criticise, service was fantastic, great for small children as well!
10.0
  • (Families with young children)
  • + The hotel facilities were ideally suited to our holiday get-together of 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 3 children of 3, 12 and 13 who were given adjacent rooms. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the Dec 26 entertainment which we watched from overhead was very impressive. Breakfast in the Garden Restaurant is always first rate and the staff there and at the front desk were always most helpful.
  • None.
7.8
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Nice hotel, friendly staff, clean and roomy, lots to do at the hotel for families.
  • A little out of town but taxi's are cheap and it is only a 30min walk to town center.
5.4
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Nice hotel, plenty to do, staff friendly. Rooms are good size and clean.
  • Not really central although once you find your way around it's a 30 minute walk to the towm centre.
8.6
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Prices at weekend only are good. Set up for families. Has nice Swimming pool.
  • Noise can be a problem. Quality of buffet food in restaurant not that good.
7.0
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Has a lot of facilities which makes it good value. Service and food in Bar is Excellent. I would reccomend this for families or those wanting to relax for weekend and stay within hotel.
  • At busy times the main eating area is too crowded. A little pricy for drinks. Buffet food quality not always good. Room privacy not good as everyone gets a big window where people can walk in front of.
9.4
  • (Families with young children)
  • + wonderful facilities for the whole family amazing breakfast
  • smell of damp in room pool somewhat cold pool showers inadequate if you're a vegetarian and don't want the buffet, which is quite expensive, there's not much to eat in the evening
7.2
  • (Other)
  • + The hotel is well kept, clean and provides good facilities for business. Reception staff were excellent and polite, the payment and room allocation went very smoothly. Food is generally very good, although as an Englishman who likes his fried breakfast i found this type of food to be fairly poor, having said that you have many other options to chose from, which i did.
  • However the service was not absolutely what i would have liked/expected. You provide bells at the tables in the comfortable lounge area but we were never attended when we used it.
8.8
  • (Families with older children)
  • + Amazing breakfast buffet in beautiful indoor garden- our lads loved the pond with the terrapins. The swimming pool was a great bonus, and we appreciated the availability of bikes to hire. The hotel is a very pleasant and easy 5 mile ride to a great beach.
  • Bitterly disappointed that the squash and indoor tennis courts were unavailable due to a long function. Provision of drinks in the room was a bit stingy, and my request for some sachets for the kids was ignored! Take some of your own hot chocolate.
9.6
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Free shuttle bus to station. Very comfortable bed. Pool open until 11pm. Great breakfast. Third visit and will stay again.
7.6
  • (Families with young children)
  • + Other than the incident above, the service was outstanding. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the indoor swimming pool.
  • There was no where on the registration websight to let The Hotel know I was active duty military. When I checked in, I asked if there was a military discount. I was told yes, but I had to give that information in advance. I asked if there was anyway I could get it and was told "no". I was very disappointed.

  • none
5.0
  • (Older couples)
  • + Ocean Bar staff very good, friendly and attentative.
  • Not really a 4* full service hotel Restaurant food less than average Restaurant service much less than would expect Restaurant is very large more akin to to banqueting and functions. As a guest felt "Lost" in its size. Rooms adjacent to Garden restaurant, insufficient sound dampening from noise of restaurant area. No wired internet in all rooms.
