This was the best stay in our 5 week tour of Europe. We were there in week one of October. Great value, great position near the station makes it ideal as a hub for cheap day rail excursions to Bruges, Antwerp, Ypres and Brussels etc. We stayed a week. The staff we met (Stephen, Jeffrey and Eva) were so helpful... More

Stayed here one night. Parked in meter parking outside for a few Euros (always a bonus not to have to pay expensive parking!). From the moment we checked in, the friendly chap on front desk took a map and drew circles around every site of interest in the city and gave us lots of information and history of the City... More

I know it has all been said before, but having just returned from a 3 night stay we have the highest praise for the hotel and its charming owners. They were so knowledgeable and passionate about their city and gave us lots of useful tips to make our stay so enjoyable.

Michael and the team at the Carlton made the break. Nothing a problem, anything they could for us they did with a smile. Perfect hosts. The rooms and decor equivelant to far more expensive hotels. The breakfast had a good choice, all fresh and the omletes to be recomended. Any questions or recommendations we had were handled expertly and through... More

You could be forgiven for walking past this small boutique hotel just around corner from the station. Once in you are warmly welcomed and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was additional 12 Euro but with orange juice you squeeze yourself and cooking breakfast to order was worth it. Rooms are light and airy. Will go again

This small hotel has it all-from the very friendly, helpful and humorous brothers who own and manage it to their excellent staff, Rooms are large for Europe and well laid out. Location is superb-minutes from the railway station for trips to other Belgian cities or to the tram for the short trip to the historical centre. An excellent breakfast to... More

We loved this hotel and the brothers who own it. Our room was terrific. We got great advice on what to see and do in Ghent with a helpful map. Breakfast was great. It is only a short walk from the train station and tram, so it was really convenient. The price was reasonable.

We arrived early and our room was not quite ready. The manager sat down with, got us coffee, and then gave us a twenty minute briefing on the city, top destinations, how the tram works, and where to get the best Belgian beers. Our room was good sized, with a very comfortable bed and nice bath. Breakfast was very good.... More

Enjoyed a long weekend here with friends and have rarely encountered such great service, helping us with maps, information and reservations. The atmosphere was unbeatable and the food and accommodation were amazing. We stayed B & B, fantastic breakfasts, and well stocked bar for cosy drinkies and nightcaps. The Tram was just around the corner and we travelled quickly to... More
