The measures taken by the Dutch government two weeks ago to combat COVID-19, led us to close the doors of our hotel until Monday April 6, 2020. The additional measures announced on Tuesday March 31, unfortunately require an extension of that period. We cannot help but make this difficult decision once again: the hotel will remain closed until April 28, 2020.

Van der Valk Hotels & Restaurants applies stricter measures

As a family business, Van der Valk gives the highest priority to the health, safety and well-being of our guests and employees and takes appropriate measures.

We naturally hope that this will help prevent further spread of the Corona virus. Our family business has been an important meeting place in our society for many decades. Many social networks are established within our branches and are maintained there. The steps we are taking now therefore feel as unreal and have long been seen as unthinkable. However, in these exceptional circumstances, there is no other choice.

We trust that we as a society will do whatever it takes to put an end to this situation and that we will be strong and resilient in the subsequent recovery.

For the most frequently asked questions and answers, we would like to refer you to RIVM.

For questions about reservations, we would like to refer you to the hotel where you made the booking.

With hospitable regards,

The Van der Valk family
