I regularly travel to the Belgium Coast and this time tried the Thermae Palace as I was taking my parents (a little older) away for the weekend as a treat. I have tried many hotels and I must say all have been comfortable, however I've always been disappointed in one area for each of the hotels until now.
The rooms I found were excellent with bathrooms as large as the bedrooms and were spotlessly clean, whilst older they were rather grand. Each room having a hallway leading to the bedroom and bathroom with wonderful old large doors.
I had asked for rooms near each other and as agreed they were indeed next to each other with a fabulous little balcony and amazing views (how often when checking into a hotel can the small point of even being on the same floor be overlooked)
Breakfast had a wonderful choice for all and even included bacon, eggs, sausages and beans with good pots of strong English Tea. All staff were efficient and tidied away without intruding.
The building reminds you of times gone by and yes there are area's where the years are showing on this wonderful building, however it is a pleasure to stay in such a well run establishment where old time values still remain.
If you want a brief overnight stop then this may not be the place to stay, however if you want to truly relax and enjoy all that Ostend has to offer including a stunning coastline from your balcony I would say this is your 1st choice.
Now I have tried this hotel, I will return many times and have already booked another trip for December. I look forward to many more enjoyable times here and It is a pleasure to find a hotel that retains it's originality rather than following the Chrome Makeover Briggade.
A truly happy customer!
