Having travelled around Belgium for the past few nights staying in Bruge, Brussels then Ostende, all in 4 star hotels. This was the final stop and I was very disappointed. The location right on the promenade, beach front is good and the lobby, restaurant area all looks very nice and well maintained -luring visitors into a false sense of security. Unfortunately that is where the positives end. The room was horrendous- clean but in a 70s time warp. Nothing matched, old bed, flat pillows and a fridge that looked like something from Argos in the corner with an extra single bed. Not the romantic trip I was hoping for. Overall, it's a bed for the evening, but at 130 euros and that does not include breakfast it's not cheap. I booked the hotel as my partner likes to use the pool and sauna which I believed would be free- an extra 13 euros to use the sauna and you have to pay a 25 euro deposit for a dressing gown. The pool area looked a bit dated and shabby so we didn't bother. The view- I had the back end of the hotel facing buildings and windows the worst view I have ever had. I spoke to reception and was bluntly told if you want a sea room, well it will cost you 250 euros ! I don't think so, save your money, pick one of the cheaper hotels around about £60 that include breakfast. You really are not missing out on much here.
