The location is excellent, right in the centre about 10 minutes from the beach. The hotel owners are very friendly. During check in he noticed it was my birthday and offered a free drink to myself and the... More

We stayed here on a cycle holiday of Flanders for one night, Small but clean room, tiny bathroom, helpful staff and quite, but the room didn't face the street. Would recommend this place if you're staying on De Panne.

One of the most welcoming hotels I have ever stayed at. I cannot praise highly enough the care and attention from the owners and seldom have I experienced such a welcome before. The rooms were clean, tidy and comfortable and the housekeeping staff superb. Breakfast was excellent and truly represented value for money. Situated on the town square however did... More

What a charming little hotel, situated in the corner of the Town square overlooking a very bus market on a saturday note limited parking on the saturday. Rooms are good spacious and comfortable, Only gripe is the bathrooms are not very big. The continental breakfast was first class, Will be booking to come here again.

We stayed in Logis accommodation, Het Manntje, situated 50 metres from the Hotel Cecil. The accommodation we were in didn't provide breakfast but had an arrangement with the Cecil to provide it. On arrival we were met by a friendly, English speaking member of staff who explained what was available ( typical continental breakfast) and to call on him if... More

White wine not cold, mussels poorly prepared, fish prepared in too much butter,... Waiter was friendly but unsavvy, not aware of any information on the dishes. Not worth the 100 euro (2 adults, one 7-year old). The hotel we did not check, but the restaurant is a no-go.

We booked in to the Hotel Cecil in De Panne, Belgium for one night stay during a break around France and Belgium. It is well positioned in the corner of the town square. The large square is a car park which was nearly empty for all of our stay - this is because it is 15euros for four hours! I... More
