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....

We stayed in this hotel while visiting Ghent and everything about the hotel was very nice. It was clean and comfortable and the front desk help was fantastic. 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

Certainly a good value, and the appointments were certainly above spartan. The bed was actually quite comfortable. Overall this property was a step above what one would expect from a Holiday Inn Express in the USA. Check-in staff was efficient and offered some very good guidance for dining in Gent. The morning breakfast buffet was certainly serviceable, but many hotels... More

We are a family and found the room to be huge. Things are excellent. For the same price, the room and its facilities are much better than brands like Novotel. Highly recommended. It would be even better if the restaurant is cheaper - its price is the same as Novotel. Great stay.

This was our first stay in Gent. Found the hotel very accessible. Clean and comfortable rooms. Coffee and tea provided but no milk only creamer. Staff were very nice, two we found a bit brash. Asked about the free drinks for the gold elite cards and the older lady in the bar was very short with her answer as she... More
