“Great local base for our extended weekend”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

My wife and I spent a long weekend in October here with our 3 teenagers. The service was personable and top notch, the rooms were comfortable and well appointed and the location was perfect for our agenda. The room configurations here include a family suite which is rare enough in such places and adds to our comfort level - not to mention affordability - when we travel. The breakfast served in the on-site restaurant wasn't cheap but, it was very nice, with personable and flexible service and delicious offerings. We took advantage of this service each morning we were here.

Outside of a small village, the location offers wonderful walking and biking routes - we walked in the mornings - as well as quick (15 minute) access to down-town Ghent and about 40 minutes to Bruges (our two day-trips on this weekend). There is an absolute gem of a cafe a stone's throw from here (seriously, walk around the corner and through a vine covered opening in a stone wall and you're there) with a cozy atmosphere, local patrons, and a proprietor who is passionate about beer (he's got over 200 choices on his menu and dishes with beer ingredients). Dinner at this place was a pleasure and so much more reasonably priced than the restaurants in the cities that we tried. DeBoomgaard also serves dinner (we didn't try it) that knowing the proprietor and his attention to detail and customer service I'm sure it's delicious.) and if you arrange in advance you can get fresh duck from the proprietors own farm.

The overall value was very good, not because the prices were super cheap (they weren't especially high either) but, because the quality, comfort, food, and personal service were so great. Did I mention personable, friendly, and prompt service? We loved this place and will return when we get a chance.
