My boyfriend and I stayed at the Melinda Hotel, as part of Leger Holidays New Years Break.
Our bedroom No 116 was small but the beds were comfortable and bathroom very clean. The wardrobe space was limited but adequate. The TV in the room did not have any english channels.
The staff in the hotel were very polite and friendly
We stayed on a half board basis: the contintental breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, bacon, a variety of meats, cheese, fresh fruit, yoghurts, croissant, choc au pain and breads. It was delicious!!
Negative: The breakfast room was small and could not always accommodate all the guests in our party.
As we were part of a group we were given a set menu for dinner but did have the option to choose something else if necessary. The food was good quality and appetising apart from Chervil Soup which was disgusting!!!
Negative: The restaurant area was small and it also doubled up as the bar. The hotel did not have a bar lounge for guests to relax in after dinner, apart from two settees in a dark corner.
The entertainment in the hotel consisted of a man and his electric organ. Not my taste in music but New Years Eve was good fun when the guests joined him in the songs.
Ostend is a small seaside town with a long seafront and sandy beach, it was very bracing walking down to the seafron on New Years Day
We also visited Bruges and Brussels during our stay in Belgium which were fabulous
This trip was worth the money and although the hotel had its small faults was perfectly adequate for a short stay holiday as we were out of the hotel for the majority of the time. I just wish they would update their guest facilities and offer more up to entertainment.
