Grand building with good sized rooms not to far from the town centre. The bad bits are the lack of staff, fitness equipment is badly in need of maintenance and the breakfast room can't cope when the hotel is busy (They should start serving earlier and keep serving until later). I wouldn't say don't stay here but there might be... More

An old classic sea front hotel that has been allowed to fall from grace. Clean and functional would be the best description I could offer. No night staff at front desk after 11pm, dated rooms and public areas. And annoyingly the bar and lounge were closed by mid evening with no room service available. Hot water to the bathrooms took...

Very friendly staff, big rooms, nicely renovated. In het breakfast area very helpful people. We also had bikes at our disposal which was very nice to explore the coast and city. We had a room with seaview which was worth it.

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
