“Decent standard chain hotel”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

I choose this as a reasonably-priced hotel to stay after visiting Ghent; I was looking for a place easy to reach with the car and with good parking. It seems there are no convenient public transport connection from this hotel (I did not check after arriving, just thought so based on hotel description), so upon arrival to Ghent I headed to Park and Ride parking at Gentbrugge and then caught the tramway to the city center (beware, you have to purchase your ticket in a newspaper shop - BTW if you happened to be on the same parking, there is such a shop about 200 metres away).
The Campanile is just a typical Campanile hotel. The building has 2 floors (i.e. ground floor and 1st floor) and a large parking. With a bit of luck you can park your car 2 metres from the door of your room. The rooms are quite small but sufficient. Very clean. All is in good working order. WiFi is free and works well.
You can drive in to the hotel parking at any time. To get out through the main gate you need to get a code from the reception. The reception is open until 11 pm. They told me that afterwards one can drive out by another gate.
The only small minus I could notice is that the receptionist is perhaps too much engaged in helping in the restaurant, so that often you have to wait at the reception or even you wonder where the receptionist can be. It is a but irritating when e.g. you wait for your exit code to the gate. However, I do not blame the receptionists for that - it is probably the requirement from their managers that they help out elsewhere, and not only sit at the reception. They were all friendly and competent.
And, keep your door card away from your mobile phone. Mine got inactivated due to this. Luckily it happened during the reception opening times. I wonder what I would have done if it was after 11 pm?

This Campinale had blistering fast WiFi, 30M up and down... Chief selling point. No need to worry about poor evening meal service at weekends, there is no service. Holiday Inn has an attached restaurant 300 metre or so away which was good with strangled WiFi of 512k. Breakfast was good at the Campinale with real coffee beans going into the coffee machine not syrup. No complaints except pricy. Handy for the motorway when travelling across Europe. Car park was free with controlled entry and exit.

A motel next to the highway E40 - E 17 with a restaurant. There is free parking a wifi. The rooms are good but basic.
There is breakfast served

Take another hotel in the centre if you want to visit Ghent,

As it is a budget motel we didn't expect a lot but it was cheap & cheerful. On the bad side a factory next door works all night & it does get noisy if you are in a back room. We dined at the restaurant on our first night which was not a good experience with bad service & an inedible veal escalope, very pricey for what you get. Breakfast was good as it is in all Campaniles but a tad expensive.

Room Tip: Take a front room.

If you are not looking for 5 star hotel that is just off the motorway this is ideal, good food and beer breakfast is expensive for a Campanile type hotel, but was fresh and plenty of it. Rooms O.K. for one nights stay

Stayed here a couple of times on our road trip to battle sites. There have been some recent road works so sat nav needs to be fully updated make sure you get on n2 when you get near or you will go round in circles.basic but very clean and comfortable. Fantastic staff and brilliant food.

Motel style with adequate facilities and if you are on a budget and in need of somewhere to crash on the outskirts of Ghent, you might want to consider this place!
