We used this hotel as a stop off en route to Calais, chosen because it was close to the motorway and had a large car park ideal fro our car and trailer. The reception staff spoke excellent English and were very friendly polite and efficient. Our room was spacious clean and well appointed. The bed was large and comfortable. Free... More

We came to this HI with the intention of staying for a few days, then moving on - but ended up staying for 10 days! The rooms was quite spacious, even for a family of four, and the breakfast well stocked - although became a bit samey after a few days, as there was no variety! The bar was well... More

I was invited for a meeting in Gent which took place in the Holiday Inn Express. Having been in Gent several times before I was a bit disappointed about the location far away from the city and next to a big motorway. Consequently the rooms are very loud anyway. However, the walls are so thin that I could not only... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during a business trip to Gent, Belgium. Low cost hotel with good transport links to the major roads. If you'd like a more city/central experience, I wouldn't recommend staying here. Positives - Good transport links to major roads, low cost. Negatives - Parking not free, no hot breakfast options, bathroom wasn't very clean. Far from... More

Stayed one night to break my journey back to the Chunnel. Location is perfect - very close to the motorway. There is plenty of free parking. Check in (& out) were very efficient. Room & bathroom were clean & perfectly functional. Breakfast was basic but adequate. Overall - very good value.

Location is outside of the city, but close to highways. Staff was very helpful. Rooms were clean. Shower was not very well designed. It's a standing shower, but water came all over the floor since there is not high enough guard to tuck the curtain. There are no restaurants nearby (except the hotel one which is bit pricey). You have... More

We were early, no problem to the staff, sat us down with coffee and magazines answered all our questions about Ghent Christmas Market and provided our room well before official check in time. The room was very comfortable and clean and the wi fi worked without any hassle. After a comfortable nights sleep and an excellent breakfast we were on... More

Stopped for one night on route to Hamburg. Just be aware that Ghent football club play in the arena behind the hotel. Can be noisy if they are winning! Breakfast was very good and the beds comfortable.

Dear Charles Thanks for choosing our hotel as your place to stay in Gent. It is correct that we have the Ghelamco Football arena nearby the hotel. When you're outside, you may indeed hear the fans cheer when they score a goal. However in the rooms and public areas it will be absolutely quiet. When you do have some time,... More

It has many good points : - close to motorways for a quick getaway in the morning - only 10 minutes drive from the historic centre of Ghent - spacious rooms with everything you need inside - I loved the design of the toilet/ shower room two-way door...

Chose this hotel due its location, approximately 1.5 hours from Calais and near to the hotel. Got there at around 2am, but the receptionist was helpful and more than willing to help. Spent approximately EUR 95 for a family room. A spacious double bed and a very reasonable sofa bed, which the staff were more than willing to assemble even... More
