Secundo
Ranked #3 of 5 Bornem B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 May 2013

Came to this as part of a bike tour, so take the comments with this in mind. With a car, some of the concerns I mention would be less.

Hotel is in a shopping strip type area between some other commercial types of businesses and along a road. The rooms were clean and OK, but the bed was a little soft. Hot water was super hot. Rooms were OK and had relatively new furniture, fixtures, etc.

For some reason, didn't really like it. I'm giving it a high score since it really is a decent hotel, I just didn't like it. The breakfast was OK. It's not close to any restaurants and definitely not in the center of town. Bornem has some restaurants in the center and the hotel has a sister operation with a restaurant near the train station, but these are 10 - 20 minutes walk away. The Notelaer, the hotel/restaurant connected to the Secundo, serves decent food, but the prices are high. The center has some other simpler options, but we chose the Notelaer for dinner. Food was OK, but too expensive and the portions were small.

Located in the middle of nowhere, it's ok to stay if you have a car and are on a business trip, with long working days and no plans for the evening. Be careful though, you won't be able to have your dinner at the hotel. They only serve breakfast. Other than that I really liked Secundo and their room design. Quite smart.

Room Tip: You will enjoy a dinner at De Notelaer, a nearby hotel (Bornem train station)

My wife and spent a night while cycling across Belgium. Right on bike path, between huge outlet stores? We weren't impressed until we stepped in. Modern appointments, good bathroom. Included breakfast was fair.

A somewhat strange hotel, positioned in the midst of a industrial area which makes it looking somewhat odd. The rooms are a bit dark (brown), but clean and not old fashioned. The breakfast is okay with different kind of bread, cereals and limited hot options. But of course you don't choose this hotel because you expect a charming place. It's efficient and value for money (below 100 Euro per night for a double, including breakfast). I had a business meeting over there and that was fine. Internet was sometimes down, but there is free WIFI in the lobby and wired in the rooms. No thrills, no charm, no excitement but value. That's why you choose this place.
