“Loved the Boatel”
Reviewed 21 May 2006

We stayed in the deluxe triple, which was a delight. The decor was fresh and inviting, with some wonderful antiques. The cabin was really large with a king bed and a single. As it was at the back of the boat, there were windows on three sides. There was free wireless internet access, which was very useful. The friendly captain and his mother served a lovely breakfast in the splendid breakfast room. It was a unique experience, and one we would gladly repeat.

Reviewed 24 July 2005

I've stayed at the Boatel several times & only didn't book in on my 2005 trip to Gent because it was full. It is a wonderful place to stay. The "Captain" is welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts are lovingly prepared. The rooms, both standard & luxury (shower in one, bath in the other) are huge and have excellent facilities. And at how many other hotels can you look out of your porthole (yes really) and see a duck swim past? Oh & there is a small deck where you can picnic in fine weather. A short walk away from the city centre. Highly recommended.
