Stayed overnight to break a journey. It was clean and the service was polite and professional. Bit far out if the centre for a holiday but ideal for breaking a journey. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a base to visit Bruges and surrounding areas and we loved Ghent and look forward to returning! A beautiful place to visit. The hotel is easy to find off the motorway and has all you need but I recommend a trip into Ghent. The bus stop is outside the hotel and for 2... More

The hotel is located along the main north/south highway and is a short drive from the city center. It is located next to a recently built sports stadium. Our hotel room was rather large and clean. It was quiet and overlooked the parking lot. There is free parking with a private lot. The hotel has a very nice bar and... More

We stayed four nights over the 4th of July weekend. On the plus side is the easy access off the highway and the cost of the hotel is affordable. The booking site indicated that breakfast was not included, but to our surprise there was a nice breakfast and it was included. This help offset the parking fee. This was the... More

I stayed here because friends visiting had booked the place to see the city. Can't recommend the hotel for this reason, but for passing through for a night stop could be all right. I found the room rate rather high for what was in the room. I also had to pay 10 Euros to park my car. The dinner menu... More

We used this hotel for two separate overnight stops between Netherlands and channel crossings. Inside the hotel you get standard Holiday Inn express fare delivered without fuss. Breakfast is free, self service, basic but plentiful. The place was clean and competent and did everything we needed. There is free basic wifi service but we were upgraded to the premium wifi...
