Bovendael is located near Aalst, about halfway between Brussels and Ghent. It is actually located in Erpe-Mere, a quiet little town that if you blink while driving through it, you'll likely miss it. But from here, it is a fairly easy 30-40 minute drive to both Ghent and Brussels. The hotel is not really geared towards tourists, rather for Sports... More

Very friendly and communicative owner, clean room, good furniture in rooms, big TV and good breakfast. No complains, good value price/service. Only ceramic on the floor is a bit cold but on the other side good for cleaning - no dust. Nothing more to say, check it by your self.

Accomodation found by friends in Belgium, is located in an old house. Internally the room is in 70's style, clean but with furniture and some features in the bathroom needing some maintenance. The breakfast is ok and also the restaurant is good. Location calm and really relaxing.

We stayed in the hotel recently and found it to be accessible, comfortable, quiet and the breakfast was good too. We recommend it. But we had a simple meal of "steak" and chips in the restaurant, which was well below our expectations and overpriced. Were we to stay again we would not eat in the restaurant.
