Such a great experience for kids! The room is like something from a fairy tale and the game in the room is absolutely wonderful. We had so much fun searching for the little props. Loved the Klaas Vaak story time. Having access to the Efteling half an hour before everyone else is allowed in was great. Breakfast was good too.

If you want to be close to the park this really is your only choice. It is a decent hotel in terms of location, rooms, and such. Blah moments: - Buffet dinner is overpriced as anticipated but alright quality - A la carte restaurant is also pricey and food is more of less same as buffer so lack of options...

Stayed in bosrijk, walked to hotel for a few drinks. Good value and excellent staff. Kids play area beside the bar, so some kids still around late in the evening. Good food and a tv for watching sports. As far as I know there are no other pubs in kaatsheuvel.

This was a great location for accessing the theme park. The Efteling hotel is best suited for younger children. My granddaughter is 12 years old and we both felt some of the things were for younger kids. The hotel has a cute theme but some areas could use a facelift. The outside and the entrance are a bit tired. So...
