This hotel was a little more expensive than some in De Panne, but it was worth every penny. Was greeted by a welcoming,smiling and enthusiastic receptionist (who we later found out was the Manager) who explained in great detail where everything was, we have stayed in a few hotels recently and they all needed some manners, but this guy was...

Over 15 years ago we stayed in this hotel right after our wedding. As we planned to visit a couple of restaurants at the seaside we decided to book this hotel again for two nights during a school holiday. When booking I pointed out our personal occassion. There was no sign whatsoever during our stay (small message, chocolates,...). We had... More

Situated 500m from the promenade on a hillock. Overall a very comfortable hotel. Three course set menu €35 as well as à la carte in which there were two good vegetarian choices. The continental breakfast was extensive. Excellent staff. All rooms seem to have a veranda but ours only had one chair and no table. The bathroom overall was good... More

We were greeted by the owner who is young and friendly. Our room was very spacious, quiet and with a balcony. The en suite was clean and modern with a walk in shower area and a decent hairdryer. Nothing was too much trouble. The owner - still around when we returned for a night cap - was very helpful despite... More

The Donny is an excellent hotel. The staff is friendly and always willing to attend your demands. The rooms are comfortable and they have an indoors swimming pool and a fitness centre. A very decent breakfast buffet completes de picture. The only problem is that it is not always easy to find rooms available, but ot is worth to try.

We spent two nights at the Donny Hotel which is described as a four star hotel. I would rate the hotel as a three star. It is evident that the hotel has had an upgrade, but for me it hasn't reached a four star standard. Yes, there is room service; but as this stops at 8.30pm it serves little purpose!... More

We chose this hotel because it has the wheelchair symbol in the Michelin Guide but it does not really merit this. Staff were very pleasant and did their best, but,as they explained, it is an old hotel and the new proprietors are gradually updating the facilities.

Well, stayed here for business. Staff go home at 10.30pm so no late bar. If you're not seated at the restaurant table by 8.30pm then no dinner... Restaurant was full at 9pm then the hotel was empty at 9.30..do all Belgians go to bed at 9.30? Basic room - 2 single beds that seems about 5" wide each. Staff very... More
