I have had good experiences with the Van der Valk hotel chain and was excited to visit their hotel in Veenendaal! From the outside, the hotel looks quite special and unique. And as soon as you enter the Van der Valk Veenendaal, you will experience a full service four star hotel.
Check-in was very efficient and super friendly! Always so nice to be welcomed with a great smile! The lobby area is spacious and you immediately notice the nice décor and decorations. They used warm colors and cozy furniture which results in a classy place. Thumbs up!
We stayed in one of their luxuriously appointed wellness suites! What a gorgeous room it was! At 60m², this suite is huge featuring several wellness facilities which we appreciated very much! There’s a free standing jacuzzi, a (double) steam shower and infra-red sauna. I could not imagine any better room to feel at ease and relax. Again, warm natural colors have been used. Other standard four star amenities in the room are a Nespresso coffee machine, bathrobes and good quality (Ritual) toiletries.
All guests staying at the Van der Valk Veenendaal enjoy complimentary access to the spa area which is located at the 2nd floor. There’s a Finish sauna, steam room and a relax area with comfy lounge chairs. A full fitness center is also available with the latest technology equipment. I must say the whole place was immaculately clean!
The restaurant and bar are located on the ground floor and are very large. Throughout the whole hotel, the used the same style and atmosphere. Very cool! It was pretty busy while we were there, but service was top notch! Within minutes, we were brought to our seats and enjoyed a great aperitif. They offer a great selection of Gins! The menu is varied and they use several local ingredients. From the starter with mushrooms to the perfectly baked salmon… we thoroughly enjoyed every dish! Oh, and the dessert was to die for 🙂
The next morning we had breakfast. The buffet was great with plenty of choices. What a great start of the day!
The Van der Valk Veenendaal is a very good hotel, no wonder it gets such good comments! From the beautiful rooms to the professional service… I loved every second of my stay here! Highly recommended!
