Good and clean hotel with nice breakfast and good service.... No wonder it's often sold out. We will be back. This is a good alternative for some overpriced hotels in Ghent if you don't mind driving 20 mins. Also the parking in front of the hotel is convenient.

Such an easy place to get to, only about 1 hour from the Dunkirk Ferry port and only just off the A10 motorway. A lovely clean, modern town with this hotel dominating the entrance to the town square. The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms are large and well appointed with huge, very comfortable beds with modern flat screen TV and free Wifi access in the room.
We could have eaten at the hotel, meals were reasobably priced but we ventured in to the town square just a few minutes walk away, where there is a good choice of bars, cafes and restaurants. There is a "Wellness centre" attached to the hotel, but we did not go in as we really did not have time.
Then in the morning we had a really satisfying breakfast, continental with eggs, ham, cheeses, choice of fruits, yoghurts, cereals, with croissants, toast, rolls and lots more all for euros 71 total. Free parking in front of the hotel, friendly reception and staff. All in all a great place to stay.

Room Tip: we had a room at the front which was nice and quite & suuny. Not sure about other rooms but sure...

Aalter is a small town just off the motorway to Germany. Convenient free parking in front of hotel. Lovely stylish clean and comfortable room. Comfortable bed, and great shower. Our only gripe (and it is slight) is that the breakfast didn't do the hotel justice, (though the coffee was brilliant)
Didnt try the Hotel restaurant, as many excellent places around the corner, including a bar with wonderful Belgian Ales on tap. We'd stay here again even if it were more expensive.

Room Tip: Our room on the top floor was excellent. Its a quiet area so no street noise.

We wanted an overnight stop on our way to Germany and this hotel is only 5 mins from motorway. Our room was spacious and clean (except for some small stains on the chairs) with very comfortable beds, table & chairs, coffee/tea making facilities, a fridge, air conditioning (which we couldn't work properly, but that's probably just us), tv where we got BBC2 but didn't explore any more, and a spacious shower room with a brilliant 'drencher' shower, there was also a hairdryer. It was very quiet both inside and outside the hotel and we had a really good night's sleep after a meal in the restaurant which was reasonable. Breakfast buffet was good with fruit salad, breads, eggs, meats, cheeses, yoghurt, excellent coffee/tea, though only 'kids' cereals. Public free parking is right in front of the hotel and appeared very safe. Before our onward journey in the morning we ventured along a short road into the centre of the small town and found an interesting market there as it was market day (Wednesday). Everybody was very friendly and we would happily stay at the Orchidee again on a future through-journey or even for a couple of days to do some local sightseeing.

Stopped on way to Floriade in Venlo, Netherlands on border with Germany, very conveniently situated 5minutes off motorway. Free public car park in front of hotel. Room was clean, comfortable beds, powerful shower, hair dryer, tea and coffee making facilities, free wifi. Breakfast was good - fruit, cereal, cheeses, meats, rolls, bread, pastries. Only down side was that the restaurant was closed on Sunday evening, not even bar snacks but a very good, reasonably priced Italian restaurant 5 minute walk away.
