I stayed here with my wife and two young sons for a long weekend in Gent. The hotel is situated 4kms (about a 15 minute drive) from the city centre, next to a very busy road and opposite the city's main hospital. There is a bar and restaurant attached to the hotel. The format is typical Holiday Inn Express. The...

The Hotel is ideal as an overnight stop as it is located approximately one hundred miles from the Eurotunnel, taking an hour and a half by toll free motorway. We stayed for one night on 24 August 2013 arriving late evening and were greeted by helpful check in staff. Our room was large and spacious with an en suite shower...

Decent business trip stay at this hotel. Breakfast could definitely be improved upon but there was at least a decent selection in the mornings. The rooms were very spacious and the bathrooms were great. Beds were small but this is typical here. Also the A/C could only go so low, assuming to save energy, which is fine, but it was...

We made a last minute decision to stop somewhere overnight on the way to the Channel Tunnel and this looked a good option with parking just off the motorway. We booked using reward points and had our dog with us, so the only items to be charged were €15 for the dog and €10 for the car park. Arriving around...

We stayed there for one night, with two adults and three kids. Ghent is just over an hours drive from Dunkirk's ferry port. The room was fine, large enough and clean enough. They had put the baby cot up just as requested, but somehow most hotels, including this one, just don't put enough towels in the room. (Stands to reason...

We had a wide triple room, clean and well equipped.The hotel is nearby the highway and you need your own car to reach the city center. To park your car in the hotel parking site requires 10 euros a day. Breakfast buffet is large but of medium quality.

Room large but there was a broken bed leg. Bathroom lacked space to put to toiletries but did have a door that closed to make the toilet a separate room. Good for a few days stay.

Going on a quick tour of Belgium to places not been to I decided that as far as possible I'd opt for know entities as far as hotels are concerned, hence this being one of the options to get a family room.
