“A relaxing stay a short drive from Bruges!”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

We ended up booking this hotel at very short notice after our other booking was cancelled due to flooding. Therefore we went with very little expectations, just being thankful that we had a hotel during a very busy time of year (Christmas markets!). However, we were very very pleasantly surprised. Yes, the first impressions from outside this hotel aren't great, it is a bit run down and could do with a paint. But once inside it's a different place entirely. We had a lovely welcome on arrival and were shown around the hotel, with our son being very excited about feeding the kangaroos the following morning! Coffee and biscuits were then brought to our room whilst we settled in.

We had two rooms for the night due to the size of our party. The family room was very large with a seperate area seperated by a sliding door where children can sleep without being disturbed. Both rooms had kitchenette facilities and the rooms were clean and modern. Breakfast the next morning was good, continental in style but with a good selection.

There is an indoor and outdoor swimming pool as well as kangaroos, deer and lamas outside, perfect for keeping children occupied!

Bruges is only a short drive away and very simple to get to.

I would definitely recommend this hotel, excellent service and great rooms! Pefect for sightseeing in the local area.

Room Tip: The standard doubles were a very good side, but for a family I would recommend the family room (also...

Reviewed 20 July 2011

I really had to think hard but this place was marginally beaten into second place of my all time worst hotels by a dive I stayed in with my parents in Rhyl (then again that was 1981).

Myself, wife and 3 young children actually had an enjoyable holiday driving to Knokke, Ostend and other beach resorts as well Sluis and Brugge. We were careful to time our return to the Hotel Ter Zaele to late in the evening to minimise our exposure to what can only be described as a dump.

Staff were friendly enough but this did not compensate for poor breakfast, smelly towels, terrible bathroom, damp room (heavy rain resulting in wet curtains). The room was practical (for 2 adults, 2 kids plus a baby in a cot) - hence we booked a last minute trip: also this being the only place anywhere near Knokke we could find with vacancies at this time.

Oh well you live and learn.

We stayed in room N 4 which is really needs improvement - paint in the bathroom pilling, drain in the sink blocked, the kitchenette is very tierd. We couldn't justify price which we paid. Couldn't sleep - mosquitoes. But the receptionist was very friendly.
