    Good hotel in a nice area

    Late arrival wasn 39 t a problem, as the reception is open 24 7. Really kind stuff was always able to help with anything. Friendly but professional, like expected at a business.

    Not the hotel to blame for, but due to the restrictions of CV, the bird park was still closed, so I can 39 t rate it.

    “My tip: Also due to the current CV restrictions, we had Dinner at the hotels restaurant. Got (unexpectedly) one of the best steaks I ever had.”

    A trip to Avifauna

    Conveniently situated hotel on the outskirts of Alphen an der rijn. Hotel rooms were spacious with a good sized bathroom. Our room also had table and chairs outside. Short walk to restaurant. Food good and we had breakfast included Secure accommodation for bicycles and you could hire as well. Option to not have room made up each day in exchange for a 2.50 voucher. Free entry to Avifauna with room key for duration of stay. Hotel staff all helpful.

    Proper cups mugs would have been better than paper ones. Will soon need some refurbishment to rooms.

    “My tip: Try booking through a discount website like or look for Van der Valk offers on their website Need to book restaurant for evening meals as very popular due to being next to Avifauna bird park Hotel car park gets full during the day due to people using it instead of Avifauna car park. However, it does get better later in the day. We were there during a school holiday. ”

    Great value for money

    Very nice room Free park entrance Excellent breakfast

    Not good soundproof. In my case the window face to the Casino entrance and some people were speaking loudly just under the window and I feel like they speak in my room.

    We appreciated the assistant which you brought us to come back from the hospital of Leiden to the hotel Avifauna on Sunday morning, February 12th.

    To join the restaurant for the breakfast obliges us to get dressed especially in wintry conditions. More indications in French on the boat trips would be welcome and would allow us to participate in it more easily

    Review avifauna

    Room, breakfast and service was really good. Staff from the hotel gave as a ride to alphen train station for free to take there the train to Rotterdam. Also they give us really useful info about train schedules and how to reach Rotterdam.


    “My tip: A complex with many attractions hotel, restaurants, bird park,... Really recommendable”

    Clean, quiet room

    Room had all we needed. Entry to the bird park next door to the hotel was a bonus.

    Disappointed by the uncomfortable mattress.

    “My tip: Dinner and breakfast at the restaurant were great”

    The family room was big and confortable

    The breakfast was expensive and we found in the room a pair of shoes from a previous guest. Do they clean the roon

    “My tip: If you want to have dinner in the restaurant, it last 2 hours so is not good to go with children”

    Lunchpakket geen reclame voor de zaak

    Goed, eenvoudig hotel. Waterkoker op de kamer was wel prettig geweest.

    We hadden geen tijd voor ontbijt, en bestelden een lunchpakket. Bestelden bruin brood, kregen kleffe witte bolletjes. De bananen waren keihard. Dit is echt geen tien euro waard

    “My tip: Er is voorzover ik weet niets anders in de omgeving, ik zou dus mijn kennissen zeggen er wel heen te gaan, maar a) het ontbijt is niet meer bij de prijs inbegrepen en b) een lunchpakket is niet aan te raden. Geen van de onderstaande themes zijn van toepassing op Avifauna.”

    Insect bites

    Location, cleanliness, service and breakfast

    Hello, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help future guests at your hotel. When we arrived in the room it was a very hot day and the first thing we noticed was that the usual air conditioner was absent. I phoned reception thinking we needed to change rooms as my wife suffers from excessive sweating at times. I was told all rooms did not have air conditioning. There was one window which could be opened but this made us concerned about insect bites because we were almost i

    “My tip: Bring insect repellent for use in the rooms which do not have air conditioning.”

    Great Place for a Weekend Away

    Service staff was very helpful and very kind. Very reasonable price for the accommodation. Tickets to Avifauna bird park included in price, and the park is right next to hotel. Rooms and common areas are fairly clean and up-to-date. The grounds are beautiful. Location is away from busy areas. Casino was smallish but fun.

    Bathroom tiles could use some bleach, there was a bit of mold starting. Hotel rooms to not have airco, which is fine, but the windows do not have screens, and many mosquitoes and flies came into the room, especially at night window screens would be a nice addition. We tried the Live Cooking buffet and were very disappointed by the small selection The cost of the buffet was too much for what they offered. Also, this was the only section of the establishment where we felt ignored by staff.

    “My tip: If you have children, take them to the playground in the bird park, it is huge and has amazing features Do note that this hotel is not close to a major highway (one of it s charms). We did not take the 90-minute boat trip due to weather, but this looks very relaxing with a reasonable price of 6 per person.”

    Mattress on Bed was broken, Worst bed I have ever slept in

    Staff were friendly

    Overall the hotel looks tired, the breakfast selection very poor

    “My tip: We booked in 1.15pm and was told No more boat rides until following day 1.15pm if you are travelling through the average traveller would miss out. It would make it more fun if a morning and mid afternoon trip was available to appreciate and get the most out of a stay at this hotel. ”

    Price, quality and needs, all within 150 metres

    Superb location next to the Bird Park, and right across the road from the Boat departure point. The adjacent restaurant has both excellent food and service. The Vander Valk staff at all these locations have all received excellent training, and have not just been thrown into the job.......and it shows. Rooms are excellent and to a very high standard. The adjacent Bird Park entrance is free to Hotel guests.

    Only really two minus points. It is a bit of a trek from some room locations to go out of the front of the hotel and round the building to the car......that is if you park the car right in view of the room. The beds are very soft, too soft for our comfort, but the many plus points made up for this particular minus.

    “My tip: Use the adjacent hotel for evening dinners ,super chef and menu at a good price. Go on the 6 euro 75 minute boat trip, well worth the price. Visit the bird park next door, it has a fantastic childrens' play area, also the main swimming bath complex is within 150 metres walking distance.”

    A great stopover

    A great place to stop on our cycling tour. Close enough to the centre to enjoy an evening out - spacious room, great breakfast, friendly staff.


    Older couples juli 2013

    Great hotel with bird park and playground on Rhine- offers boat tours!

    Amazing upgrades to bird park, which was quite enjoyable, fun to see kids learn as well. Loved feeding the lorikeets! Also, boat ride was great (part of offerings). Breakfast self serve on terrace was lovely; also great old rivertown with amazing town center.


    “My tip: Buffet breakfast is great addition to stay, go by 10 (close at 11) Boat ride well worth 6 euros.”


    Other juni 2013

    - excellent price quality report - very quiet - nice personnel

    - The smell in the corridor (probably very old carpets and people smoking in some areas) is terrible and gives a first bad impression - food in the restaurant should be "modernized"... (comments from someone used to travel in France a lot)
