Recent guest reviews

Friendly staff - beautiful building, nice rooms. Extremely good breakfast, nice little spa with fine treatments and a nice little pool and gym and the location next to the old village and center - couldn´t wish for more. I will be back some day.

Good location. Nice clean room. Friendly personnel. Stands to good NH standard. Parking nearby is a bit of a hassle in the beginning but once you get used to it it's ok. A pity I did not use gym or pool which are beautiful

Overall, a lovely and well-run hotel. Located a short walk away from the main squares, the main entrance is in a lovely old, classically styled and rather grand building. This contacins the bars and restaurant, all in a modern but not overly trendily designed style. There's a courtyard for breakfast and drinks, which is surrounded by more modern, contemporary buildings,which house the majority of the well-sized bedrooms. Rooms spotless, comfortable beds and decent lighting... The service was generally pretty good, though we had a few problems with the door key which had to be changed. A highly recommendable place to stay, and very good value for the quality.

There were 6 of us staying and we all booked Deluxe Double Rooms. Our room was lovely and spacious with a little balcony. It did lack a little detail like pictures on the wall and perhaps a rug on the wooden floor as it felt a little sterile. The bathroom is huge and spotlessly clean. There was a little dressing room as well which was lovely. The staff were all incredibly helpful and polite. The hotel is beautifully decorated. The breakfast was an amazing choice and plentiful and also had a good array of gluten free products. The hot food was really nicely cooked. The bar is really lovely with great staff. We used the spa and this was the most disappointing bit. The pool is very small and was cold, so on a drizzly day it wasn't very welcoming! we would have used the steam room and sauna but we weren't allowed to wear swimsuits - only a towel or dressing gown which we didn't like the idea of. This is the only downside to the hotel because overall it was lovely with gorgeous gardens. The situation is great and very central so a short 5 minute walk to the beautiful centre. We will definitely be returning.

This is a beautiful hotel that deserves its five star rating, gorgeous design throughout restaurant/lobby areas and the hotel rooms. But I am sad to agree that on my second visit here, there were mosquitos in the bedrooms. not sure how they get in (they were already there before I opened a window). I have 5-6 mosquito bites but a friend also staying at the same time got about 30 bites in one night and had to go to the doctor. very strange. maybe it's just this time of year? Other than that I'd also say it would be nice if the hotel provided hair conditioner in addition to shampoo. And a shame they charge for the water in the minibar, a lot of hotels now offer water for free. also the lighting system is quite confusing to turn on/off and adjust. on the plus side, the bed is wonderfully comfortable and linens very nice. hotel is well located a short walk to major attractions. breakfast very delicious with some premium offerings (loved the raspberry pear juice!). I just hope they can get rid of the mosquitos soon!

An excellent hotel with great rooms, very well maintained and high quality lounge/bar areas and top notch breakfasts and drinks! The spa facilities were small and disappointing, but this didn't spoil our stay, as Ghent is lovely, the staff are polite and friendly and the hotel had a lovely feel to it. Would love to return.

Stayed here for a night while on business in Gent. Beautiful hotel. Bar area is very nice, big and welcoming. Rooms are quite nice as well. Bathroom clean and a nice size. Bed was very comfortable. Check in went fast as did check out. Parking convenient to get to.

This hotel and the majority of the rooms are excellent and I have stayed here several times without incident. However, on my most recent visit in early October I was given a room on the first floor at the front of the hotel close to the road. The ventilation in the room was inadequate and finding the room too hot, even with the air conditioning on I made the mistake of opening the window. The road outside was extremely noisy with groups of people shouting until very early in the morning. The worst thing however was that next day I had more than 12 mosquito bites. There is an obvious problem with them in Ghent even at this time of year but strange that no provision such as a warning notice or better still screens on the windows which I have seen in other hotels in this area.

I had surgery with doctor Koen De Smet and my wife and me had a great time there and we felt really confortable . The best I can say is about all the employees of the hotel, they are simply wonderful persons. They made everything easy and always with a huge smile.

Hotel lobby, location, staff is exzellent. Wochenende did not use wellness facilities, but it looked nice. The room was clean and spacey, but not homely rather paltry. I expected something way more adequate to the general appearance and the room rate.
