Stayed a few nights at the hotel. It is a very convenient location with ample of free car park space. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Checkin was a breeze. Room was a split level room which could be a concern for elderly or families with young children as the staircase is pretty steep. The bathroom is nice but...

The hotel is reasonable and clean, but very much out dated even the TV in the room is an old timer... The location is good and it is nicely situated next to the exotic bird parc Avifauna. Boat tours are also available and the city of Alphen ad Rijn is a nice modern city to visit

Hotel needs updating and renovating... It's like a 70s film set in desperate need of renovation... However the hotel is clean and for the purpose of business is adequate. The winner in this place what makes me return is the food in the restaurant... It has to be one of my favourite places to eat... The quality of the food...

The hotel is a little out dated but it was good enough for us, we stayed for only one night. The staff at the reception and I the bar is very friendly. The room (no. 115) we had was spacious but close to the elevator, it was noisy when people waiting for the elevator were talking. The beds were comfortable...

Just returned from a 5 day trip to Alphen where we revisited our favourite hotel Avifuana. I have stayed at this hotel over a period of 25 years and it never fails to deliver. The manager and staff are attentive and very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is spotless and the rooms large and spacious. We have...

Old, simple outdated rooms. 3 Disconnected buildings, you have to walk under the rain to reach reception area or the breakfast / restaurant area. Nothing special. Poor breakfast. Friendly staff and ready to help. The park is ok but nothing special

Not any special. Just modest rooms. 3 Buildings disconnected from each other not convenient forcing you move external to reach reception, Breakfast, etc... On rainy and winter days... Basic breakfast... Good value for money. Free and good Internet connection. Park is ok provide you find free space..

Stayed here for 1 night. Everything is old and outdated. The hallway on 1st floor smelt awful. Rooms are big, but not designed for the needs customers have nowadays. Small tv with poor signal, only 1 free wall socket that actually worked. Staf is friendly though. The bar was overloaded. Nice atmosphere though. Would not recommend

I have stayed at this hotel many times and hope to again in future. I've stayed at various times of the year and the place is always decorated for the occasion. Rooms are quality and comfortable, staff helpful and attentive and the breakfast is more than sufficient. The bar is pleasant to relax in of an evening and the casino........

Just got back from staying here for a week on business. Well priced, clean and friendly. It has free wifi but it can be slow. A bar that opens from 1700. Plenty of car parking and a casino (only slot machines though). Certainly not Vegas. But this place has one thing no other hotel I've stayed in has. An absolutely...
