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 :-)

Excelent location, directly near the sea and the marina. Nice views at the sea and the ships going in and out the harbour. Comfortable bed and big rooms. Fine bathroom. Very nice is the balkony at the room.

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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by berna1952 The worse breakfast of all my Holiday inn stay ...
We booked last week a room in your hotel. In our booking we asked for a room with port view on an upper floor.
Usually, as gold member of your priority club, you do your best but this time, we received a room at the end of the first floor corridor with a very small balcony and no fridge.
We arrived at 9 for the breakfast and it was no more scrambled eggs, no more bacon and even no toast bread ...
When we asked for a hot chocolate, the answer has been that it was not included and cost 2.5€. I went to the supermarket to buy my own ...
I don't speak about the extra cost for the parking and the internet acess.
Really the worse holiday in in all my stays.
You have probably one of the best location and the worst service. Unfortunately I will never come back ...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PW57WHU Weekend Trip to Amsterdam and Area
The Hotel is Comfortable and next to a Nice Marina with some Restaurants near by otherwise Very Remote.
Disappointed as a Platinum Ambassador to be giving the Superior Room as ordered at the back of the Hotel facing San dunes and a Racing Event over the weekend in the Car Park.
We would have expected to have received a Superior room facing the Marina and Sea.
Furthermore I was amazed that we were charged €7 plus tax to park at a Hotel which is miles from anywhere especially as a Platinum Ambassador.
Did not even get Milk with the Complementary Beverages.
The Local Restaurants Saved the Stay from being one of our worse Stays.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Yvonn Firts & Last time Holiday Inn IJmuiden
A very bad experience and also the last time!
* food was normal
* restaurant staff was standing alone at eve and didn't know how the cash worked/how to make a hotchoc/didn't know where the beer was and didn't do anything to call a college (and making excuses for it)
* sauna & turkish steam wasn't what we paid
* wifi wasn't for free
* parking in the winter season was good but also not for free
* TV only 1,2,3, and channel 4 the others wasn't there or you had to pay for it. A movie (old ones) you have to pay 7,50 euro for it! (for that kind of money you see it with good quality sound and video in a movie theater!!!!)
Sorry but if you are looking for a nice evening you will not get it here. Unless you need something to stay for the night and than I would still thing about to drive further

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Robster Disappointment
This hotel has almost the best location in the Netherlands, but fails tremendously in serving the customer.
We were in this hotel for 1 night to escape our environment after a year of hard work. In the middle of the night a large group arrived at the hotel and got several rooms on our floor. From 5am and on, loud noises, room doors opened so they could communicate to each other by yelling, puking neigbours and yelling and smoking on balconies. We called the front desk 2 times: Nothing!! The next morning, during check-out, i addressed this matter to the thing who checked me out. Again nothing!!! She didn't even look me in the eyes while communicating. A simple cup of coffee as a gesture would have been enough. Thus, so far our getaway from our madhouse at home.
Maybe i will visit this hotel again when it is taken over by a company who cares about the visitors. Because the location is more than perfect. A beautifull wide beach, walking distance from Bloemendaal and Zandvoort, beautifull nature and dunes to walk over and through.
