Here you will find all information about the transformation of the hotel from the takeover (beginning of 2021) to date, and we inform you about what will happen in the near future. Through this page we will keep you informed of the developments during the renovation!
Early 2021: From Pelican to Van der Valk
After the takeover (beginning of 2021), the transformation of the hotel started immediately. The Pelican made way for the Toucan and soon the Van der Valk 'sauce' was poured over the lobby, a number of halls, the restaurant and the Economy rooms.
Winter 2021/2022: Meeting rooms, Comfort & Comfort Plus rooms
In the winter of 2021/2022, the Comfort and Comfort Plus rooms were also renovated. The new furniture, the stylish rust-red wallpaper and the beautiful carpet & parquet ensured a fresh and familiar Van der Valk look. The halls were also upgraded with new furniture, facilities and wall decoration.
Fall 2022 to June 2023: We're going to expand!
But we keep innovating! Our smallest room type, with its 17 square meters surface, meets the least "Van der Valk standards". We have been in the permitting and design process for months, and now we have the green light! We will start a major renovation around November 2022 and we hope to be able to show you the beautiful result in June 2023!
What's about to happen? The front and rear facade of the right hotel wing (seen from the entrance) will be placed 3 meters forward! This increases our Economy rooms by 9.3 m2! After the renovation, the total surface of this room type is not 17 m2, but more than 26 m2! Not only will the inside get a major upgrade, but the facade will also have a look that matches the rest of the hotel.
During the renovation, our hotel will halve in size (number of bookable rooms). During the expansion of the right wing, only the Comfort, Comfort Plus and Deluxe rooms in the other part of our hotel can be booked. However, the quality, hospitality and service does not halve! We try just as hard to make the guests who do stay with us happy and hope that you can look forward to the beautiful end result with us!
