We were visiting Maastricht University and found this hotel through Expedia. What a revelation - excellent value, a relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings just 5 kms from the centre of Maastricht. The hotel is a castle/chateau in its own grounds outside the city with free parking. The rooms themselves are in a modern wing/annexe to the back of the castle and have clean lines, modern feel with good facilities; not overlarge, but not cramped either. The staff are very efficient, friendly and helpful - not speaking any Dutch was not an issue - they all spoke excellent English. There is a restaurant and a bar at the hotel with very pleasant outdoor terraces and courtyards for sitting out to enjoy a drink or coffee. We did not use the restaurant, which looked quite nice, but the menu looked to be "special occasions". We did have the breakfast which had a very good selection of hot and cold food. There is free wifi in the rooms. If we go back to Maastricht, we would definitely choose this hotel.
Travel into the city by car is a very easy drive from the hotel - only c. 3-4 miles to the city centre (15 minutes). Parking in the city is less of deal than some comments on websites. It is not a big city - go onto the maastrichtbereikbaar website for details of the parking places. We used the Stadspark "Park and Walk" car park for an evening (free after 6 pm) only a 5 minute walk through the park to the old town. Taxis can be booked if you want to drink with your meal.

This hotel is fantastic...it's a beautiful former Chateau located right outside (approx. 3km) of city center Valkenburg and 15 minutes from Maastricht. The hotel provides a free shuttle to Maastricht, so you don't have to worry about traffic. Everyone there was extremely friendly, and the rooms were fantastic. I'm not sure if we'll ever return to Valkenburg, but if we do, we're staying here agian.

Nice hotel, the lobby was good (had a turtle pond). The restaurant was very good as well. We booked a large family room, the room was large but only had one large bed. When we talked to the staff they said they were out of extra beds. I highly recommend the hotel, but be careful when booking on Expedia, for some reason they don't register your full family. The rooms are large enough for a family, but don't have enough beds.
