“School trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Basic hotel which served it's purpose for us. I went on a school trip recently to Belgium to see the battlefield and this is where we stayed. We managed to stay quiet and respected the place well, they offered us a good buffet style breakfast and dinner. The rooms are basic and clean, the hotel itself is great for spending the night in but has nothing to offer if you were wanting to spend time at the hotel during the daytime. Overall it serves well for a few nights as very basic.

Room Tip: 1st floor is good if no school trip

This is where I stayed for 3
2 nights with school. The rooms were tidy enough however, the sofa bed, wardrobe and bed side cabinet are falling apart. Beds are a bit close together. Bathroom is good although, we didn't have a bath. Bed VERY UNCOMFORTABLE the wooden slats were falling out and you could feel every bar and spring. Food was DISGUSTING! A 'continental' breakfast that consisted of bread and a cuissant. Make a pack lunch was a disaster. A roll, a biscuit and a drink. Not good. Dinner was the worst. Disgusting, undercooked and cold. NO VEGETARIAN OPTION. There were 3 vegetarians and the hotel was informed so it was cold chips and cold undercooked spaghetti. Location is ok but you DEFINATLEY NEED A CAR! We would drive quite far to find a trench or a museum and a long drive to the Menin gate. It was alright but DEFINATLEY take extra food. You will be hungry and slightly disappointed.

Stayed here with a party of students who were visiting the Somme and Ypres battlefields. The hotel although not as conveniently as close as other hotels, has good road links as long as you avoid Lille in the morning and evening rush hours. Breakfast was good with a wide choice of breads and juices, Making your own lunch is a bit of a bind but it seems to work as the students take what they want. Rooms are clean and well appointed. the only matter which requires serious consideration is what to do in the evening. There is a room in which students can meet. However, the hotel is considering installing computers screens and perhaps games for student use.

Room Tip: You may have to put up with school parties at this hotels so it could be a bit noisy!

On arrival we were given keys to our rooms, This was not ready when we looked at it, then given another room. Our booking said twin room with a view, not so. NO VIEW!! Stayed at this hotel for one night. It was very noisy had a coach party of schoolchildren staying, (I do not have a problem with children) who ran amok in the hotel until nearly midnight, playing in the lift and landings. Although we were on the 3rd floor and they had the 1st and 2nd we still had all the noise. To cap it all we were then woken at 7am to a trumpet call and banging on doors. Beds are very narrow and uncomfortable. Was glad to get away, shame because the town it self is very beautiful and a pleasant place. Would definatelty stay in the town again but not here. Breakfast was very basic. Hotel was very clean but lacked character.

Room Tip: top floor away from lift

This is a basic clean hotel which is adequate for visting the battlefields of the Western Front. There are not many frills such as pictures on the bedroom walls or a decent flat plasma TV screen with international programmes. Hot water always but bath towells too small! No cofffee/tea making facilities. Breakfast is just about acceptable. Although double glazed some traffic noise gets through. Hotel Manager appears to be a one man band but very friendly and helpful

This was our accommodation for 3 nights in October 2012 whilst on a school trip. Can't fault hotel, rooms are clean and comfy, nice surroundings, relatively central for every sight we needed to see when there :)
