This is undoubtedly a good hotel. The recently upgraded and enlarged building is wrapped around an older hotel which has largely disappeared. The car park was full of high end saloons. Everything about the hotel is professionally run and the rooms are large, comfortable, and very well equipped ...but the decorators opulence has not given the place any real character.
The positive is that the rooms and the food are excellent...even the orange juice at the very generous breakfast was freshly squeezed before our eyes....but the location is a 20 euro taxi ride out of Bruges and in the middle of nowhere with major roads around.
It is not best suited for a visit to nearby Bruges as there are equally good hotels in that city, but as a stopover ...albeit not cheap...it is excellent.
