“Great Hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We were looking for a base in Flanders for a few days riding parts of the ‘Ronde van Vlaanderen’ route. We paid slightly more for a ‘Standard Plus’ room which was excellent. It was located on the top floor of the new block. The room was modern, clean and had great facilities. Breakfast is buffet in the conservatory on the terrace and is great for cyclists! We also paid for half-board and the food was top quality including steak kebabs on the last night (the best steak we've ever tasted!). The hotel is ideal as a base for all of the famous Flanders climbs as most are within riding distance.
Joris and all of the staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The only thing that could have been improved was the weather, but as Joris told us on the first day, ‘there is no such thing as the wrong weather, only the wrong clothing!’

Room Tip: We had upstairs room in new block, so can't comment on the other rooms

I have not been inside the "Moriaanshoofd" for over 20 yrs. as it was not too good when I stayed there last, but now, What a transformation.! The small, family run private hotel is set back from the main N60 and this means that access can be little awkward from the main road, and you may have to go to the roundabout in order to do a U turn but it is simple with a good satnav.

The accommodation is simple, spotless, comfortable and spacious. A Patio door leads out to a private terrace overlooking the lawns complete with ornamental lake and a pair of Swans. It is perfect. Beautiful En suite shower and toilet facilities, clean and spacious too.

The atmospheric Bar/Restaurant is predominantly wood but it's tone sits perfectly with the building . Flame grilled steaks a speciality Weds through to Sat. Prices very reasonable. Superb Continental Breakfast buffet, Cold meats, Cheeses and Fresh bread rolls.(Not Microwaved). The Owner Joe states he serves Good simple food of the highest quality and I cannot put it any better. When visiting the Flemish Ardennes this is a first class base from which to explore.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for the rooms in the new building to enjoy the full benefit of this lovely hotel...

We had a wonderful stay here for the Tour of Flanders.

The room was spacious and had a luxurious bathroom. We were in the new building, the room had a patio door that opened onto a private sitting area. Lovely view of the lake.

The bar and restaurant reflected the owner, quirky and full of character. Jo made ever effort to make us feel welcome. Good selection of beers, a few more choices of fish on the menu would have been appreciated.

The Tour of Flanders CycloSportive long route (from Bruges) passes the hotel so its convenient to nip in and use the toilet en route. Beats queuing for the porto loo!

We would definitely return.

Room Tip: We booked a deluxe room. Unable to comment on the standard rooms but I understand Jo has plans to up...

Have no experience with the hotel since I live nearby but the restaurant is worth mentioning ... in a negative way , I'm afraid .
French fries fried in old fat (that smells - no doubt about it) , prefab sauces (even when asked if they were homemade , they said yes !) , the meat was cooked badly (I ordered rare and got medium rare , my friend ordered medium rare and got well odne) and the general amount and quality of entrees and desserts on the menu wasn't appealing ( nothing fresh to my opinion , either frozen or fried) .
Combined with elevated prices (1 aperitif , 1 piece of meat , 1/2 bottle of wine and 1 whisky at 42 euros) , this one is to avoid !!
