We stayed there for a night while hopping between Ghent and Brugges. We used public transport which is not having frequent connection on Weekends to the location of Hotel Otherwise the Hotel is Fantastic.

We got this hotel as a ''Secret Deal'' it is just a bus ride away from the main central station in Ghent, there is a bus stop facing the hotel so is a good location but the last bus leaves central before 10pm so we had to get taxis a few nights home as we were out later than that.... More

Close to the motorway, spacious rooms, clean bathroom, nice beds, free continental breakfast. I love to stay here. This is how an (express) hotel should be. The only thing is they charge you for parking (10 euro's). Ok, one more thing, the shower curtain is not long enough to keep the bathroom floor dry. :) Keep up the good work... More

I stayed here after being discharged from the University Hospital in Gent on the recommendation of the social worker. I got a discounted rate as a result because I had to be close to the hospital but it worked out to be a great hotel!! Breakfast, while simple continental, had a few local specialties. The restaurant did great food and... More

Perfectly located for exploring around Belgium, this hotel has everything you expect from a travellers hotel. Bed was firm, choice of pillows, coffee and tea in the room plus a continental breakfast and Wi-Fi included in the price. Would have been nice if the small bar was open for drinks while we were there but we just picked some up... More

Very convenient for the Ghent motorways, if you are travelling by car this is useful, has a big car park, and the restaurant is good too. I have stayed here before and returned for those reasons. Normal Holiday inn standards apply to the rooms - you know what you are going to get.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel - on this occasion we were stopping off for the night on our way from Holland to Dunkirk. The hotel is just off the main E17.

A nice reasonably priced hotel in ghent standard is what you would expect from a holiday inn but it gains points for the restaurant. Perfect for disabled travellers but unfortunately a long way from the beautiful sights of the old town
