At Van der Valk Hotel Lelystad, we do everything we can to make our youngest guests feel comfortable too, and we welcome children with open arms! There is plenty to do for children at the hotel. For example, the kids can have fun in the special kids corner of our restaurant or the playground next to the outdoor terrace. In the restaurant, the exciting Timo Toekan coloring contest is a favorite. But there is also plenty to do for children of all ages in the surroundings of Hotel Lelystad.

Spacious family suites
When you go away as a family for a night or weekend, it is of course nice to sleep together in one room. Especially for this we have spacious family suites. The family suites are ideal for a stay with children and have a double rain shower and an XL whirlpool. This way the children can splash around in the bath. In addition, the children have a separate themed room with a large bunk bed with television, an exciting slide and beautiful starry sky. How cool is it to sleep in the adventure room, a fairytale forest full of animals, the green jungle or in the funny circus? After a wonderful night, the kids will start the day off right with a cozy Disney movie on the smart television with chromecast function while the parents enjoy a well-deserved cup of coffee or tea. In the family suites, you and the whole family will enjoy a wonderful overnight stay. Sweet dreams!
Play corner in the restaurant
In the restaurant a separate children's area has been set up especially for our youngest diners, full of fun activities and toys. Of course, it is also possible to watch a fun series or movie in the play corner. The advantage to the play corner at our restaurant is the enclosed space. In fact, the children's corner is a separate room with transparent walls. This way the parents can keep an eye on the children while they are playing.
Special children's menu
Besides an adventure playground, our restaurant also has a special children's menu full of tasty snacks and delicious desserts. Of course, it is also possible to just have a nice 3-course meal with a warm children's tomato soup, a children's carpaccio, a special children's schnitzel, tasty snacks and a special children's ice cream sundae or a Magnum Dame Blanche. Bon appetit!
While eating, children will also receive a special Timo Toucan coloring page and coloring and can enter the Time Toucan coloring contest. In return for the colored drawing, the children will receive a nice gift. Did they make the most beautiful drawing? Then they also have a chance to win fun prizes!
Playground at the outdoor terrace
Right next to our relaxing outdoor terrace is the children's playground. A place where kids can let off steam and parents can enjoy a nice cup of coffee or a delicious lunch. The playground features an adventure playground with slide, climbing frames and swings. In addition, the playground is directly accessible from the terrace and fully fenced. Ideal for our youngest visitors!
Most children love to swim. And at Hotel Lelystad you don't have to leave the house. This is because the hotel has its own heated swimming pool for hours of water fun. Take the whole family for a dip in our swimming pool. While the children splash in the water with one of the parents, the other enjoys our wonderful sauna, snow shower or magnesium baths.
Adventurous excursions in the area
Not only in the hotel is enough to do for the children, also the surroundings of Hotel Lelystad are a party for the kids. A day at an amusement or entertainment park with children is always a good idea! Or how about a (mid)day at the nature playground, among fairy tales or animals? Fortunately, there are plenty of outings to be found in the Lelystad area. How about a trip to the adventure forest? With 40 acres of land and over 140 pieces of playground equipment, children won't be bored for a minute here. In the Hansel and Gretel play park, fairy tales come true and children can reenact the famous fairy tale, romp around in the big haystack or follow the breadcrumb trail with the whole family. Walibi is also close to the hotel. Here you can scream your lungs out or join the exciting splash battle with the whole family. The real thrill seekers step into one of the 11 exciting thrill rides for a ride full of adventures and great heights. Do you dare?
