It is not the best hotel in Belgium, but certainly the best in Oostende, with a good value for money. The hotel is a bit old but charming, with a very welcoming staff and a unique charm a bit like Grand Hotel de Cabourg described by Proust but without the aristocratie and it need some work. The lobby is quite... More

This is a tough call. The hotel has been neglected for the last few years, has had a new owner recently and it shows. Clearly, it had grandeur and class years ago, lost it over the years and new management is working hard to get some of it back. And it shows in everything. The revamped brasserie (breakfast area) is... More

Actually, there are lots of places to stay in Ostend, but there's only one Thermae Palace Hotel. Bathrooms used to have four taps: the normal two and two for hot and cold sea water. Those days have gone and there's nothing left of the thermal baths, though on leaving we heard there is a modern sauna. What can I say?... More

We have stayed a few times here. What a privilege to sleep in a palace on a beach. Art Deco was invented in belgium and the palace has plenty of it. The atmosphere is grand, the rooms and beds utterly comfortable. Ours had a see view. What a view to wake up to and than go down and enjoy a... More

As this hotel has been taken over, the warm feeling when arriving at the reception it's in a business way you are welcomed. The brasserie was no longer open and the big meeting upstairs gave a lot of noice, even when getting into bed...

Steeped in history and a former royal retreat, this grand old maid could tell a thousand stories. From Royal Balls to Occupational Forces she has seen it all. Now a hotel, I found myself studying the high pressed ceilings and looking for evidence of a bygone era. Redone in the late 90's, the mural sized pictures of days on the... More

Not a four star by any standards. I travel frequently and stay in hotels all over the world. Felt the need to review and comment because I feel that people should know what they are getting in to. 1) the rooms are old, tired and empty. Feels like they have quickly put some old furniture in a room. 2) We... More

Two years ago, I visited Ostende in Belgium. I went to the Thermae Palace, and I found it really beautiful ! There is a fitness, and obviously there are thermal baths. The room is so big and there's a breathtaking view on the sea. For breakfast, there are so many things to eat, it's just unbelievable ! I promise, you'll... More

The hotel is old glory, lack of maintenance, paint is probably from 19th century. It takes half an hour to fill fhe bath as there is only little water coming from the tab; Staff is not friendly, as a antive Dutch speaker staying in a hotel in Flanders I was adressed in French. Catering is a disastre (slow, dirty wine... More
