On the plus side : friendly people clean room good location great breakfast reasonably priced (booking.com) On the minus side: paper thin walls (hear everything) room 12 (standard room) smallish, some noise from outside, a lot from the inside... Conclusion: We would go back but if we would stay for longer than a night we would opt for another room... More

This Hotel/restaurant was a pleasurable place to stop off for lunch, it was a lovely sunny day so we decided to eat al fresco and this place was perfect, We called into several restaurants to view the lunchtime menu prior to choosing this one but nothing really got our taste buds tingling as much as the "Tapas de luxe" (hot...

The first thing to mention in this hotel is the warm welcome. The staff is friendly. After your arrival at the reception, the elevator and the rooms are a deception. Our room, on the 4th floor, was old and very small. The bathroom was too small, you weren't able to stand right while having a shower. Everything was very clean... More

Front desk reception very good and check in easy. Receptionist advised about parking overnight, provided maps & generally was very helpful. Can get a voucher from reception for reduced fee on parking at Churchill though still not cheap. We checked in early and were given a room upstairs via the lift without any problems. Comfortable room, clean with fresh linen... More

Emerging from the train station, we spotted the hotel just a few minutes stroll away. Booking months ahead via their website, we got a half-price deal of only 60 Euros per night for a superior room with breakfast. While we did not notice anything particularly superior about it, the room (number 23) was comfortable and very clean. We had a... More

This hotel is in a good location for everything in Ostend and the staff are friendly. We arrived by car and instead of parking in the underground car park outside the hotel we parked in the Churchill Car Park on the opposite side of the road, it was much cheaper. The room we had was at the top of the... More

We booked this hotel after reading all the good reviews on this site. We parked at the public car park which was indeed quite expensive (EUR 17 per day). Staff was helpful and location is excellent, closed to the harbour and all the restaurants. There was three of us, my husband, my stepson and myself and we thought the triple... More

Minutes walk from the train station sits the Strand (Du Bassin) hotel. Very friendly staff and excellent food. No AMEX accepted. Stayed five nights and the room was just right for me.
