First impression of the exterior is very attractive, when we worked round to the entrance, we discovered a modern side with a well decorated and inviting Reception area.
The staff were courteous and helpful at all times. We had a triple room for ourselves and our teenage daughter; the room was delightful; well decorated, light and airy with a balcony and plenty of space for all of us. There was a fridge and a safe and a well stocked shower & bathroom.
Breakfast buffet was pricey but a good selection and I can thoroughly recommend the fresh fruit and also Quark and Yogurt. It was lovely to start the day with breakfast outside watching boats go by and the occasional inquisitive duck.
We used the 43 bus service, which is conveniently right across from the hotel, to take us into Leiden station (about 10 minutes); or in the other direction to The Hague (about 30 minutes).
Our stay at the Van der Valk, Leiden contributed greatly to the success of our holiday in Holland.

"Ideal for exploring between the Hague and Amsterdam"
The hotel is conveniently situated on the main road in Voorschoten. From outside buses run into the centre of the Hague. A short drive away is the railway station for trains to Amsterdam. The world famous spring gardens at Keukenhof are 30 minutes drive away as are Holland's best sandy beaches at Noordwijk and Katwijk. Hotel is in modern motel style consisting of two adjacent buildings although some rooms are in an annexe on the other side of the busy main road. There are two restaurants, one being gastromomic. This was the first hotel in the Van den Valk chain and the surrounding fields are home to the family's collection of exotic birds and animals. It was strange to look out and see ostrichs and kangeroos. Recommended.
