The history

Golden Green Hotels is a family business in which all members of the family work. It was founded in 1989 by Mr. Cor van Duijn and his wife Plony. Meanwhile, their daughters Evelien, Lione and their husbands also work in the case. The basic idea of the hotel group is that the atmosphere and service of a hotel to a large extent determine the guest’s hospitality feeling. These are the areas of focus that are constantly being worked on in the hotels.

The reason for the creation of the Golden Green Hotel group stems from the purchase of the Beach Hotel in Noordwijk. After a thorough renovation, another way of managing and the dedication of the family went to run the first hotel.

In 1992 Golden Tulip Leiden was purchased. This hotel was a challenge for the family to go! In 2005, a 4 * hotel in the centre of Leiden decided to offer a 3 * product by introducing the Tulip Inn formula with 52 modern rooms in a new wing. This created something that was reasonably unique in the hospitality industry; 7 stars under 1 roof. Together, Golden Tulip & Tulip Inn Leiden Centre has since that time 155 beautiful rooms.

In 1995 the Hotel Noordzee in Noordwijk was purchased which is today Golden Tulip Noordwijk Beach, also known as “The Grand Old Lady”. At the moment she is undergoing a major renovation in 3 phases to turn the pearl on the boulevard of Noordwijk with 83 4 * rooms.

In 1996, the Golden Tulip Zoetermeer was purchased. After a major renovation in 2016 there is now a 4 * worthy hotel and it was named Golden Tulip Zoetermeer-Den Haag. With 64 renewed and trendy rooms, this hotel is now well on the map. This includes 11 very spacious apartments, making it a versatile hotel with 75 rooms.

In 2012, Ibis Leiden Centre was added to the now very beautiful portfolio. From an old university building, a sleek and modern 118 room hotel was made right in front of the central Station in the middle of the city centre. With this hotel, the Golden Green Hotel Group has 3 hotels in one street right in the centre of Leiden which is a nice position.

Since 2013 Mr Cor van Duijn has done the business transfer to his daughters Evelien Roggeveen-van Duijn and Lione van Duyn-van Duijn. They are responsible for the management and the daily operation of the hotel’s exploitations. There is the support of an operational director, Mr. D. Tuin.

The next generation will also be able to complement the continuity of this beautiful company.
