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.

We had an overnight stop here whilst driving from Germany to France. 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

About 18 months ago I stayed at the Campanile motel next door to break up the long journey from rural Shropshire to the Moselle Valley in Germany. I was pretty hungry so went to the Campanile restaurant to be informed that they weren't serving food that evening, 'damn it!'. Please bear in mind that this is the industrial side of... More

We stayed there in for 3 nights in February half term from 14th Feb (Valentine's day) to 17th Feb. Overall it is a nice hotel and its location is very relevant if you are travelling by car and want to commute to Brussels, Bruges and Antwerp as these all places are in 40 mins distance from this hotel by car....

They were able to give advice on where to go, what to see and were very patient and helpful. The hotel was very near the main highway and also the professional soccer... More

We stayed here for two nights this week. We knew the location was not central so were happy with this. We also knew we would have to pay 10 euros per day for parking (this is excessive and should be included in hotel price). Staff were friendly and breakfast was what we were expecting cold continental but very nice anyway.... More

We booked this hotel at the last minute having read all reviews. It was easy enough to find driving from Calais. Our old satnav drove us straight to do the door. Yes you do have to pay for the car park, which is big, but fills up quickly if there is an event on, but remember, it's 10€ not £10... More
