Van der Valk opens new hotel in venlo

Venlo, Wednesday 9th of June - The Mayor of Venlo, Antoin Scholten, opened the new Van der Valk Hotel Venlo today during the official opening ceremony. Using golden scissors, ‘a durable ribbon of flowers’ was cut together with management Han and Ine van der Eijk (fourth generation Van der Valk).

A proud Toekan adorns the façade of the new hotel in Venlo. A sustainable building with 168 spacious hotel rooms, 12 conference rooms, a reception area for 250 people at 66 metres
height and an auditorium with 140 seats. The hotel can accommodate a total of 600 guests simultaneously.
There is also a modern à la carte restaurant, a live cooking buffet restaurant and
a trendy hotel bar. After the summer, the wellness will also open with three saunas, relaxation area
indoor swimming pool and a luxury fitness with personal trainer.

The Van der Valk group has owned Van der Valk Hotel Venlo since 1992. The ambition to bring Van
der Valk Hotel Venlo back to the requirements of our time had been there for some time. The
banking crisis put a temporary stop to these ambitions a few years ago. The ambitions have now been realised after all. ‘We are ready for the future and have built a sustainable hotel inspired by the Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C) principle,’ says managing director Han van der Eijk.

The objective is to realise a sustainable hotel, which is in line with the ambitions of the municipality of Venlo which, as a C2C municipality, sets the bar high in this area. The municipality made their contribution as a sparring partner. The hotel is in a high-profile location along the A67 motorway, on one of Venlo's main approach roads. Managing director Ine van der Eijk adds: ‘In terms of design, a warm and cosy atmosphere has been realised with natural colours and luxurious materials. We are unique in the region.’

Building in corona time
Demolition work began in August 2019 after which corona pandemic broke out in spring 2020. The largest hospitality family commended itself on the solid foundation of the group, which meant that despite the corona crisis, construction continued unabated and all employees remained employed.
