The Van der Valk brand delivers once again!

A friendly welcome, helpful staff, a delicious and well priced evening meal in the restaurant, and a great breakfast. Couple all of that with fabulous facilities - pool, fitness centre etc - and a small town within easy reach by ferry and it all adds up to a great stay. The Van der Valk brand is brand you can trust.
