“Convenient but nothing to write home about”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

This was very much what you expect from an average Campanile just off a motorway - not a lot of style and somewhat indifferent service. The room was OK, clean but a bit drab. Reception from staff was very variable - a very friendly member of staff greeted us on arrival but bar/restaurant staff were less than warm - a smile could have improved things a lot. The food was adequate from a limited menu, and choosing the dish of the day (which I optimistically did, as it is often good) was a huge mistake this time . . . Breakfast OK.
Next time will look for somewhere else.

This hotel is a Motel style place; although they offer also diner from a limited menu.
The room was clean; the bed was good. Not too much noise of the highway.
The breakfast was a standard (European) buffet in a spacious "lunch room".

This has the standard design of a Campanile Motel, on 3 floors. The room was in need of re-decoration, and more importantly a good clean. The bedding felt stale and dirty - I chose to use a sleeping bag rather than the dusty bedding.

The good things: the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the food was tasty and the beer choice was good. Access and parking were both good.

A little investment and greater cleanliness in the room and this would be a great value place to stay.

Booked just prior to arriving as my travel was affected by the weather. Older type motel arrangement, just off the autoroute. All facilities were modern, clean and tidy, although the heating in the room was struggling to keep up with the weather outside, but it was an exceptionally cold night. Had dinner in the restaurant, the food and service were both good. Would stay at the hotel again.

Modern and cute B&B. Located far from center but perfect for car-travellers. Parking and wi-fi is ok. Entrance to the rooms is from the street even on the 2nd floor - looks nice. Electric teapot was a pleasant surpise.
In December while +2C outside it was really cold in the room even with maximum heating - be aware. In summer that might be really good choice for 1-2 nights.

A little out of the centre of Ghent and adjacent to a Retail Park, but very good value. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are your standard twin rooms. The Hotel is clean and well maintained. Breakfast is worth taking, plenty of choice.

I stayed here after finding a rate of approx 50 EUR on booking.com. The staff was great – they swiftly checked us in and showed us our rooms. The blackout screen on our room was broken, so they tried their best to fix it (which didn’t really matter, since we didn’t need a view during the night). Breakfast was good but overpriced (10 or 11 eur, if memory serves). The parking lot was a bit confusing at first – there is a gate which lets you in, but not out. When I first asked about parking (there is also a sign stating that non hotel guests need to pay), I was told that it was no problem for us to come and go. Once we were unable to leave, we had to go back to the front desk to get an access code. Check out was fairly quick at the front desk, although the employee told us to wait while she assisted her clients – not sure what that made us…

Stayed August 2011, travelled with family
