Stayed here on a Saturday night in late January. The hotel is very close to the motorway, so is very good choice to use as a stopover when traveling. The hotel has a very large car park spanning the front and side of the hotel, which has plenty of parking spaces. I wasn't charged for parking, which I'm not sure... More

Second stay and front desk personnel continue to impress...during last overnight, Laurence(sp?) went out of his way to provide outstanding service. Pull out bed was perfect for the kids. Perfect location to visit sites in Belgium. Breakfast was good, room was clean and comfortable - would definitely stay here again.

We stayed four nights altogether as the hotel is in a perfect location for traveling around Belgium. 30-40 mins from Antwerp and Brussels. It is a long walk into Ghent centre (35mins) but a bus stop is opposite. €8 each way for 4 adults so we took the car the next day, much easier. Hotel beds were very soft and... More

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Austria. It was conveniently located just off the motorway. Room was good size and clean. Breakfast was good and included in the price. There were extra charges for parking and local tax which i was not aware off. But reasonable hotel and I would recommend it for short stay.

Stayed for two nights in December. The hotel is extremely easy to find and perfect for the car driver. There is very little close by but a short taxi ride will see you in the city centre Approx cost 15 euro. The hotel is acceptable for the business traveller,towels may need replacing but level of cleanliness is not in question.... More

I have stayed here previously, and was pleased, but much had changed. My reservation had not been recorded and I had to go on-line to 'prove' that it had been made, the rates quoted were not honoured, the only clerk there was rude, obstreperous, negative, and arrogant. Personnel represent the company and in this case it was most unacceptable! In... More
