Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof
Ranked #3 of 39 Hotels in Ghent
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 May 2013

I have stayed in Reylof severeal times during the last year. I must say that this is a great hotel. Great service, great rooms and great breakfast. The rooms are different from each other as it is an old building and I love it when it is not all exactly the same. Some people think it is hard to find the rooms, but I think that is charming. The rooms are in different levels on one side of the building, so the elevator stops in 1A, 2A, 2B, 3A... But that gives you not many rooms in each floor and creates a feeling of a smaller hotel. Not these loooong straight hallways you can find in big hotels.
It is close to the centre of Gent, about 5-10 min walk.
They have parking under the hotel and the welllness is great for a hotel in a small city like Gent. The pool is equipped with a jet stream so you can swim and on the other side it is bubbels. The gym is small, but fresh and all stuff you need for a basic workout. They have 2 Saunas on the top floor.
Wifi works in all rooms and all over the hotel.
I like it!

Room Tip: I always take a room towards the back yard on a higher floor. That gives you a terass or a balcony.

We stayed here for three nights when visiting ghent for the first time. we were a short walk from the main centre so good spot to go sightseeing from
the hotel is big some 150 rooms but its got warmth of a smaller hotel unless you join the hordes for breakfast or try to check out when a conference is on.
Gym is well equipped and there is a small pool - the courtyard is very pleasant


many positives

friendly staff
great beds and well equipped bedrooms
great breakfasts
lovely cocktail area
spa treatments of high quality


a few negatives
not enough storage in the rooms - ended up putting clothes on top of wadrobe
reception at times struggles with check outs
room service could be more efficient

Very nice, large hotel; has a main hotel with more rooms in an annex in the back. We stayed in an annex room; everything was modern, clean, quiet, and comfortable and we had no problems whatsoever. The breakfast is enormous and delicious; hot and cold foods galore, huge selection and abundance. Saw many guests using the sauna, but we didn't have time. A 5-minute (if even that) walk into the heart of Ghent and the beautiful Leie River with it's famous stretch of historic buildings; a grocery store just around the corner if you need water, etc.; close to many restaurants also. (Go to the design museum right around the corner; it's excellent!) Staff was super friendly and efficient; helped arrange taxis to train station (which is about a 5-minute ride, for about 8 euros, well worth it vs tram when you've just arrived from the train). If I had to complain about anything, their coffee was super bitter and not to our liking, but since everything else was great I will forgive them this one small thing! I would stay there again and recommend them without hesitation.

Lovely hotel in an ideal location for sightseeing in Gent. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food was great. Do make time to visit the spa if you can as it is beautifully set out, with a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere.

We arrived for a two night stay and had booked a deluxe room. Luckily for us our room was located in their new building overlooking the garden, main hotel and pool/wellness centre. The room had this amazing wrap around balcony and was very modernly styled. We loved it so much we told the staff that we had decided to live there! The hotel is a gorgeously renovated building with a big and nicely decorated breakfast room. The buffet breakfast was very nice with both hot and cold items. The wellness centre was well equipped for a hotel, a small pool (lap pool jets available) which we used both evenings, massages available, sauna and steam room, exercise room. Everything that one could ask for! Staff were lovely and eager to make your stay an enjoyable one. The hotel is located just around the corner from the main tourist area. We loved Ghent and this hotel, a beautiful experience which will be fondly remembered.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to upgrade to a deluxe room, for us it was only 20 € per night extra, ask for the balc...

It is a beautiful hotel located on a great location. Everything you want to do in Gent is at walking distance. Friendly staff, great bed and a very nice shower. Parking is just around the corner and you park there for a penny
