Was in Ghent for a weekend to watch the Tour of Flanders. This was a great base for our group with loads of car parking and easy to find with Sat Nav!!! The rooms were clean, well maintained and bigger than other Holiday Inn Express' I've stayed in. The staff had no issue with some of our group storing their bikes in the room (still plenty of room to walk round!!!). Each room had tea and coffee, hair dryer, and flat screen TV.
The bar staff were extremely friendly and kept the drinks flowing all night!! The bar food was really tasty, perhaps better than the buffet. Reception was also very accommodating in sorting out our bill trying to divide it amongst 12 of us!!!
Good location - about an hours walk outside of Ghent, but well worth the stroll to see the sights. Taxi's are easily available and affordable if you didn't feel like walking. Only took about 45 minutes to drive to watch the cycling.
All in all a great base, excellent value for money and will certainly be going back if the cyclists want another go over the cobbles!!!
