Friendly staff and very quiet rooms. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are large . We arrived on Saturday and discovered a lovely farmers market in the parking lot across from the hotel. In the morning a food truck was in the parking lot with breakfast and lots of locals.

Stopped here for an overnight on our way to a channel crossing. Enjoyed the beer and the bar. Staff was rather relaxed but helpful. Checkout was quick and rooms were large and clean. Large parking lot overlooked by room made keeping an eye on car easy.

This is the perfect choice for a stay whilst travelling to or from the Channel ports for instance when catching an early ferry. It is 2 minutes from the motorway, 75 minutes from the tunnel and has a large car park. More importantly we booked on-line 2 days before our stay and got a double room only deal for £50... More

I have stayed before and knew what to expect. Fairly standard for Belgium but it is in a good location just off the E40 so handy for Brussels airport. Parking right outside but it is a public car park so in the afternoon you have to fight with the parents collecting children from school and if leaving after 8:00 in... More

Ideal location for visits to Bruges and Ghent... close to the highway, but not that close to hear the cars. Large, clean, big room. Very friendly staff... we arrived earlier than the regular check in time and were helped in a very friendly manner. Decent breakfast buffet too.

Stayed here twice now, can't beat the price for quality of the hotel. Check in and out are very friendly and straight forward. Rooms are very nice for a 3 star hotel. Not overly luxurious, but it has all you could want, including free wifi, tea/coffee facilities and a safe that will fit a medium size laptop. They also have... More

The hotel only does breakfast & provides you with a list of food places in the area. There is a vending machine near the lift/toilet(s). You can walk... More
