Poortackere has the potential to be a fantastic venue, but sadly not a lot of effort has gone into upkeeping and bringing the building up to today's standards.
Perhaps we should have been warned by the hotel's name: a monastery houses those who renounce wordly pursuits.
The room (Maagdenvleugel) we had definitely reflected that idea. Very basic comfort, dirty and in dire need of a paint job. Simple bedding, elementary bathroom with again need for a fresh lick of paint. Not so long ago parts of the building were used as student dorm, I had the impression not much work was done since when changing from dorm to hotel.
For monastics seeking an undercome relic without comfort Poortackere may be the thing. All others, looking for a decent, tidy, upkept place to stay should steer away from it.
