We have just returned from a 4 day trip organised by Majestic tours. What an ideally situated hotel! About 200 metres from the beach and a similar distance from the shops etc.
Everywhere is on nearly flat ground in Ostend, except a slight slope to the beach area.
The food at the hotel is really quite good.
Continental breakfast The usual choice of cereals. A good selection of bread and rolls. There is cheese, meats and boiled eggs. Also fruit and yogurts.
There is a set evening meal at 6.30 pm. Guests sit at tables for 6 persons. Starters is soup or salad. The waiter then brings the fish or meat of the day on a large plate accompanied with dishfuls of potatoes and vegetables. Always plenty to go around, and second helpings for those that so wish! You are given a choice of the dessert of the day or cheese and biscuits.
Meals were served quickly and efficiently. I will give credit to the waiters who besides being efficient were always very polite and pleasant.
Evening entertainment was an organist, and for the first night a singer. Drinks were included in our tour package from 8.30 pm. We found the barman to be very good.
We had a double room - 204 - overlooking the main road. A bit noisy at night, but not a big problem. The room however was very cramped, as was the bathroom. Having said that, the room was clean with a good bed, linen and towels. A good TV with BBC and ITV channels. No coffee or tea making facilities.
Both lifts were working in the hotel. Very old fashioned - but they worked! This is important as you have to take your own cases to and from your room and you could be on the 4th floor!
Another good point about this hotel is that the coach can stop right outside the entrance. Very convenient.
Many guests at the hotel were on repeat visits. We hope to return ourselves in the near future.
To summarise - This is a clean, well organised, and efficiently run hotel. The situation for a few days holiday couldn't be better. Ideal for trips to Brugge, Ghent, Brussels etc.
