Stayed here on 13th Aug after booking direct on holiday inn website to get a rate of 60euros for a night , without breakfast. The hotel itself is not pretty to look at, but is handy for the intersection of the E17 and 40 motorways, giving easy access to Brussels/Ghent/ with Bruges being about 30 mins drive. As it was away from housing etc I felt the carpark was secure with a lot of duty frees / presents in the boot of my car. The room had two double beds and was spacious for a family of four, and the coffee making facilities were appreciated after a lack of them in france. After a hard days tourism the small hotel pool was excellant for an unwind with the children, I think it stayed open until 2300? As we ate out I can't comment on the food / bars and the reception staff were friendly and spoke good english.
Overall it is a good base to tour from, well located ( unless walking ) at a pretty good rate and we would use it again.
