This hotel is lovely and is reasonably priced for what you get. The food, service, quality of room etc is all very good to say the least, however, it does come at a price, the traffic, you can not get away from it, especially at night. My wife & I like to have windows open while we sleep, even in the winter time, this could not happen here unless you can put up with the noise, they do offer ear plugs free of charge from reception.
The waiters in the restaurant wear gloves while serving dinner and are very helpful and polite. The amount of food and quality you get is brilliant, there was nothing to complain about, a brilliant menu & I am a fussy eater. The breakfasts leave you wanting for nothing, it is help yourself, but they do cook the eggs for you while you wait & to how you want them. The coffee machine made a reasonable coffee as well.Also on offer is parma ham (or similar), smoked salmon, cheeses, ham, cereals, breads, freshly squeezed oranges, you name it, it was there.
Other than the traffic, this write up does carry another warning, check your bill on leaving, I noted a number of people having issues with their bills every time I walked past the reception area, so I was pre-warned, they had sneaked another €14 onto my bill for the mini bar in my room, knowing how much hotels charge for the mini bar, there is no way I would take anything from one, neither would my wife, the bill sounded more than I was expecting, but you not get a hard copy until you have paid by credit card. Therefore, my card was refunded, then charged again at the correct rate. It was not an issue, but how many people fail to notice this ??
If you leave your car in the car park and walk the 15 min walk to the bus stop, however, the instructions printed are slightly wrong, the bus stop number is wrong as is the bus number, it cost €4 for two adults, but buy your tickets for your return from the machine in the bus stop, it only cost €2.60 for the return trip (Sept. 2013), Take a left out of the car park, walk to the roundabout, take 1st left, walk through the industrial estate, although it feels wrong, it seems safe enough, then another roundabout appears, take the right that is the beginning of the small town, Oostkamp, within 50 meters a small newsagent is seen on the right hand side with the bus stop there, a different number to the one printed at the hotel.
Ask for a room that backs onto the field, that looked like the best bet.
