Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovecouple2013 Celebrated our 1st marriage anniversary in a great atmosphere.
For the occasion of our first marriage anniversary I went with my wife and our baby to the seaport beach hotel in Ijmuiden.
At the check in we were received with a warm welcome. I was recognized as IHG rewards club member. We were given all relevant information and congratulated with our 1st year of marriage.
When we entered our room, the fireplace was burning. It was warm and cozy. We found a welcome letter and some snacks! The minibar was filled! We relaxed a little bit and than we went for dinner.
We booth went for a steak. The food was of excellent quality, particularly my wife LOVED! She says the best she ever had.
At night it was stormy and we could hear the wind gusts. That added to the romantic atmosphere. Because it was chilly and our room was so good we decided to spend a lot of time there.
The breakfast was good. Compared to other experiences it was average. There was no shortage of anything that was offered.
We used the late check-out option and check-out went smooth with polite staff.
Overall we had a very good experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pipster nice conference rooms, sweets, fruits and coffees
but at night .... comfortable bed, but the room was way too noisy to have a good sleep. What was it? I stayed at the third, it sounded like a fan or something, machine?
Dinner for 25 people was of good taste, but to order drinks took more than 20 minutes, i was never ask for anaother drink, empty glasses bottles etc were not taken, we had to ask for drinks more than once, no water at the table (when it came, the bottles and water were warm/ hot), main course for 6-7 people was delayed for 20 minutes .... something went wrong, that's a shame because everyone was very friendly, the hotel is clean and nice. You can do bettter next time!

But open air car park space of 16 euro for two nights was really much to expensive!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Fleurtje90 Room for much improvement
The reception was very serviceminded and very friendly. The ladies I give 8 out of 10 points. However, for this type of hotel a few major issues need to be urgentle resolved:
1. Airco was not working. Due to heavy storm the balkony door could not be opened. So quite warm in the room.
2. Water fountain did not go away.
3. No mini bar.
4. Interior is outdated, of the room, the corridors did feel like a retirement house. No atmosfere.
5. No clean sheets second night.
6. Breakfast table was cleaned while we were still having breakfast.
7. Two days in a row no cups for tea
8. Breakfast buffet was poor, no additions, where we came on 10 o'clock to have breakfast most of the items were finished, and they hardly refill. No poedersuiker second day, they ran out they said. Which is strange when serving poffertjes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emiel1974 Wonderful weekend for relaxing
We got this weekend as a gift from friends. What a nice location to relax. The rooms are big (superior room) and all with a view over the sea! The beds are really good!! Staff in restaurant are nice and with a great service (thanks for the wine suggestions!!) and all with a smile. Breakfast is good, a lot of choice. Not very exclusive but everything regular is on the buffet. Reception staff is nice and very polite. It was a great stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by strandman46 Nice place at the sea
The hotel is nicely situated a few steps from the seaside, next to a harbour for sailing ships, One side of the hotel offers a beautifull veuw at ships entering or leaving the port of Amsterdam via the locks at IJmuiden. It's an excellent startingpoint for a walk along the beach or in the dunes. If you love shopping: Haarlem is nearby and a fast ferry brings you to Amsterdam. The restaurant serves a good menu for only € 29,50 which is served by friendly people. It's worthwhile to come or to return to this place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BEWVR A great escape from the busy city
This hotel is perfect to get away from the city. Enjoy a early morning walk at the beach, or stay long in bed and go for a late breakfast.
The rooms are renewed and I was upgraded to the jacuzzi suite. One of the advantage of being a loyal IHG client.
In the evening you can relax in the jacuzzi or enjoy a lovely dinner at the restaurant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emiel1974 Relaxing and surpringly beautiful environment
We just got back from a nice relaxing weekend in Holiday Inn Hotel IJmuiden. We had a wonderful spacious, clean room with view of the harbour. In the room were also coffee and tea making facilities, through which we could relax immediately on our bank. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious. We have particularly enjoyed the desserts. The staff was friendly and helpful. At night we sleep well in the spacious bed. A major advantage was that we only need to check out at 12 noon, so we could relax in the morning. After a rich breakfast buffet we hiked on the beach and through the dunes. The hotel is located in a beautiful environment. We will definitely return.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RegularNoMore Continuing to deteriorate.
Been staying here for about 10 years on a regular basis as proximity best suits me but have finally given-up.
Yet again WiFi incompatible (I know others have the same problem) yet other hotels are OK and staff will not do, or, seem unable to do anything about it.
Room Service continues to not bring what was ordered and in the time promised despite confirming when ordering.
**By default the hotel continues to ALWAYS try and charge you parking so beware if you take a taxi. NOT Customer-friendly in my view.**
Gym equipment invariably needing some work.
Electrical wiring always seems fragile although not uncommon in MLE for 2-pins.
This is not a cheap hotel and I expect appropriate standards as I can get in other hotels.
I always try and be constructive and have made comments on the above to the hotel on a number of occasions over the years but nothing seems to change - so I will.

Always a pleasure to stay at the home-from-home HI in Ijmuiden
Staff make me feel welcome and you can have a laugh with them. Some hotels have 'faceless' staff - not here, real characters, managed with aplomb.
Thanks to all the staff....Chris :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matty32 180 degree turnaround
after a dreadful stay earlier this year we had been invited to stay again and underneath you find a copy of the email we send to the GM.
Dear Mr van Nigtevegt,
There is an old Greek proverb which states: Promise only what you can deliver, then deliver more then you have promised. In case of the Holliday Inn Ijmuiden we can now truly say this is the case.
From check inn all the way to check out we have encountered nothing but positivity. From the team members on check in, the team in the restaurant with especially Andreas who now made our meal in the restaurant most pleasant by displaying his knowledge about the food and wine down to the team members who served our breakfast and asked if everything was in order.
These small touches that have been noted by us during our stay last weekend are exceeding the expectations a Holliday Inn customer would have from a core brand IHG hotel but make the stay special.
This time your team has proven that your hotel is a home away from home and that they are proud of performing their jobs within the hotel. Everyone had a smile on their face and everyone was genuinely interested in the wellbeing of the guests (and they weren't only the guests in our party)
Therefore I would like to thank you for a fantastic stay in your hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChicaBonita Lovely location
On one side you have the harbor and on the other side the beach that goes on forever. Staff is very helpful; they lent me money when I arrived to the hotel with a taxi that only accepted cash which I did not have since I arrived from abroad. My room was spacious and clean with a nice balcony facing the harbor.
Minus was the bath tub, not very convenient when you take a shower. Big bed but a little on the hard side for my taste.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bialy Best holiday inn I've ever stayed in.
Staff were super friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable and the best pillows I've ever slept on in any hotel, even better than 5 star hotel pillows. I'd love to know the brand and buy them for home. They were that comfortable. The beach is a 5 minute walk and is beautiful. There are also delicious restaurants with fresh fish on the beach. My family and I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HenKx very nice Hotel for a leasure or business trip
This was the 4 Th time we stayed at this Hotel.
The Hotel it self is great: service, rooms, leisure breakfast.
The menu card for diner is a bit limited.
The surrounding of the hotel (restaurants and chops) is a bit poor,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roel Good room, decent stay
The hotel is good as well as the location close to the beach. There is not much happening at the 'boulevard' anymore, but it doesn't matter if that's not the reason why you are staying at the hotel.
The service is good, late check-out is possible #for a small extra charge# and the parking facilities are ok.
Beds are nice and the room is big enough and clean.
Overall experience very good!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Katelya76 wonderful room, but...
We attended a wedding in the area and decided to stay the night. The hotel was was easy to find, in a great location and well maintained. Staff was courteous and pleasant.
We stayed in a family room with a double bed and a (murphy) bunk bed. The room was spacious, clean and big enough for the four of us. Bathroom was clean and roomy.
I was a bit surprised to see there was no dutch website available, that makes it harder to find what you need. I ended up calling the hotel to make some inquiries. In the netherlands when you book a room it usually includes breakfast. It wasn't made clear that that wasn't included here. A separate breakfast cost a ridiculous 20 euro p.p. also not mentioned was the 8 euro parking fee, not a nice surprise at checkout.
So overall the hotel was great but find the small print first as to avoid unpleasant discoveries.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Landa Great food and sauna
We booked a room in the Holiday Inn in IJmuiden because we wanted to relax for a weekend and this Hotel has got a sauna. We used it 3 times in 3 days and it was very relaxing.
The food, both breakfast and dinner, was excellent and the service was great every time we ate in the restaurant. The staff was friendly and polite.
We also enjoyed the fire place after a good walk down the beach in the evening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jbuitink Relaxing weekend
We spend a lovely weekend at the Holiday inn IJmuiden. We booked a superior room with harbouw view, which was absolutely lovely! The reception was friendly and efficient. We received nice suggestions to do in the area. We had dinner in the restaurant, Eventhough it was very busy, we had excellent service and enjoyed our 3 course menu. Staff was friendly and made time to explain and to have a little chat. Also the chef came to check if everything was at satisfaction, very nice tough!
In the morning we had a lovely breakfast, large choice of food and drinks and all smiling faces again!
The hotel is next to the beach which is perfect! We had bad weather unfortunately but had a good time thanks to reception with nice shopping suggestions and stuff to do in the area.
I can really recommend this hotel!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CPAbicyclist Great location, but not impressive
i felt the hotel hasn't been the best maintained. The room's door closer was broke. The room too warm at night. Great location at edge of North Sea and near restaurants. Difficult to fine since address didn't come up on maps.
