We have been coming here for years with our family and love it! It is out of town so you will need a taxi or the bus which stops opposite the hotel. The rooms are large and really nice while the hotel has a large indoor pool and tennis courts. Also kids play area, ping-pong and billiards with a great bar. The hotel food is a little pricy but of good quality and the service is of a high standard

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, 2 adults and a 2 year old. We loved the huge and varied breakfast buffet and found the staff very friendly. We had to get a glass of milk for our daughter from the bar and were given it complimentary. Reception staff called us taxis and we hired bikes which were of really good quality for €9 per day. We would definitely stay again

Nice family hotel with facilities for kids. BUT- Didn't like the room. we were 2 adults + 2 kids and the room was very small for us. small beds!! no space to put your things at the bathroom, small closet. our room face the resturant, so you can smell food morning and evning.. In addition, you need to go through the reaturant area in order to get to your room.. didn't like the layout staff at the reception not very welcoming. parking is free. good location for traveling

This hotel provides good quality stay in combination with very convenient services like: free parking, shuttle bus to central station, indoor swimming pool, multiple restaurants. Rooms are average sized and service is good.

Nice family hotel. Nice and good equipped rooms , but unfortunately all windows besides doors with no option to open. Friendly and helpful hotel stuff. Perfect parking. Good food. Good kids activities.

Extremely original architecture, very nice the internal garden with the restaurant. The lobby area is huge, space with many tables for confidential meetings. Ocean bar offers happy hour free snack buffet from 5 to 7 pm. I had dinner at the restaurant, the dish was well presented, food very tasty. I have not used, but there is also a swimming pool, sauna, fitness area, ping-pong & billiard and a kids area including play stations. In other words, all you need is there.

the hotel is situated near the nice town of Leiden (not in center). the city is close to 'the hag' 'Amsterdam' 'Rotterdam' and more making it a good base to those traveling by car. the hotel is more like an american motel vibe. rooms surround a closed patio, and look either into the patio or ground floor point outside. Rooms are Ok with nothing special, we had two beds for the four of us and it was good. shower was OK although could be cleaner. in the patio there is a playroom for children which was great for the children ending the day. in addition there is a small closed pool which as well great for the children and was open till 22:00. there is a good buffet for evening for 25 euro per person, surprisingly children up to 12 years old don't need to pay. there is plenty to eat however drinks are extra. its not the cheapest option and not the most tasty but its a very good option in the hotel. The good: *great base to toor cities in the vicinity *very good for children *free parking The bad: *little old style *our room shower was not so clean - might be just by chance

Thoroughly impressed by the hotel layout and facilities (indoor swimming pool) which unfortunately we did not have time to use. Executive suite was well equipped with 2 double beds, safe, minibar, coffee maker and lots of power sockets! There was enough room for 2 cane chairs and table. Very friendly and helpful concierge who organized take away breakfast and taxi for us to go to Schipol airport about 20 mins away. Most enjoyable brief stay. Well done!

This hotel is just outside of Leiden's centre (about a 20 minute walk or by Number 43 bus from the bus station located outside Leiden's main railway station) and is a nicely laid out facility with swimming pool (indoor) and fitness facilities. Our main reason for returning to this base for a long weekend was to take in a trip to the Kuekenhoff Gardens on their springtime glory and also to enjoy the great evening buffets and expansive breakfast buffet selections the hotel's chef lays on for guests. We were not disappointed. If taking advantage of the evening buffets on the weekend ensure you leave room for dessert as the selections of mousses and apple pie laid on will test your willpower to the extreme should you try to resist them ... in my case I succumbed but took small portions to enable me to sample more than one of the creations without feeling too guilty. The same policy should be adopted with the starters and the main entree selections which will allow you to try out the amazing range the chef creates for your gastronomic enchantment. Staff in all sections of the hotel and especially in the restaurant are very helpful and friendly. The best place to enjoy your meal is if you are fortunate enough to secure one of the tables surrounding the central artificial pond area where as well as enjoying the food you can watch the koi swimming in the pool or the many turtles lazing on the rocks by the side of the pool who occasionally rouse themselved to go for a dip in the waters. They are even more amusing as they struggle to extricate themselves from the water back onto the rocks after their "work out"! This hotel is obviously very popular with families at the weekend and the youngsters enjoying themselves in the play areas can be a little noisy at times. If that prospect worries you them I suggest you make a request when making your reservation for one of the outside facing rooms.

Hi. I arrived at a good hotel. The executive bed, room is pretty good. But the internet wifi is really crap. I had the executive room. I don't really understand that hotels can get away with this. Just arrange a decent connection, and a lot of people will be happy.
