About Efteling Hotel

Themed fairytale suites and just 5 minutes walk from Efteling Theme Park.

After a day spent exploring the magical world of princes and princesses at Efteling theme park, the perfect ending awaits you at The Efteling Hotel,  where you get to take on the role of these fairytale characters and even stay in themed accommodation based on famous fairytales.

Efteling’s 4 star hotel provides great luxurious comfort in a castle-style building less than a 5 minute walk from the theme park itself. So, whether you fancy just an over night stay or to take in your surroundings along with the thrills of Efteling theme park for a longer duration, Efteling hotel is the perfect home from home.

As you arrive at check-in you will find specially made steps which lead to a children’s counter so they can announce your arrival themselves. Also within the lobby is the Pardoes Theatre which is named after these friendly Efteling characters. Here you can watch the fairytale tree and Mr Sandman videos. It is here in the hotel lobby that The Sandman reads bedtime stories to the children and different Efteling fairytale characters come to visit daily.

Breakfast is included in your stay and should you wish to dine in the hotel throughout the day there is also a variety of excellent options. De Gelagkamer is the hotel bar which serves snacks and a lunchtime menu. Next to the terrace of the Hofferlijke Heraut restaurant you will discover an enclosed playground area, perfect for lazy lunches and dinners.

For those residing at Efteling accommmodation it is even possible to eat at one of the theme park restaurants after it has closed to the public.

Special occasions are easily marked here with services such as a special tapas ordered to your room complete with bottle of prosecco or a Sandman cake to name but a few.

Whether your stay is long or short there is plenty to do nearby and in the hotel. Why not rent a bike from reception and take in some of the sights, the woodland and local towns? If you’d rather spend a relaxing day at the hotel or if you have a child that has difficulty sleeping through the night, the Kid’s Castle will be the perfect remedy for those sleepless nights. This indoor play area, where children can climb and slide to their heart’s content is open 24 hours a day!! If your children just can’t get enough of the Efteling excitement then they will be delighted that all rooms have an Efteling channel on their TV.
