A nice hotel with good pricing! my friend and I decided to go to Brugges and Gent for some days. All other hotels nearby are extremely expansive, but this one has a very good location, which is just next to E40, the highway and easily access to the both cities within half and hour. The hotel is surprisingly comfortable, with very spacious room and quite newly renovated. Aalter is also a very nice city with some good restaurant, which is a very good choice to stay out of the two tourist cities for dine. Staffs are very helpful, nice choice to stay in!

An excellent stopover hotel being only about an hour from Dunkirk and just off the E40. Nice big room with modern furnishings with comfortable beds and excellent shower. Tea and coffee making facilities are also provided. We ate in the restaurant and the meal was very good. Breakfast in the morning was excellent with cereals, juice, cold meats, salmon, fruit, yoghurt and really good croissants, It was also possible to cook your boiled eggs how you liked them and there was a waffle maker to let you make fresh waffles. There is plenty of free parking exactly opposite the hotel. This is an excellent hotel but the thing that makes it that extra bit special is the staff. All the staff we encountered were exceptionally friendly and helpful and speak English. The small town of Aalter is a pleasant little town. This hotel was great value and I would highly recommend it.

The Orchidee is a superb hotel conveniently located midway between Bruges and Ghent. Aalter itself is a nice, small town with plenty of bars and restaurants. The hotel is very contemporary with wood floors throughout and excellent furnishings in the rooms. We would definitely return to this hotel.

This one rocks. Great rooms, comfy bed's, very fast WIFI, a cheap bar and very quit but only a few minutes from the highway. Nearbye a station and nearbye a small but cute citycentre from Aalter. The best thing about this place is the very cheap rate. I've only paid 59 euro for 2 persons.

Searching for a hotel that had parking in the Ghent, Belgium area was an adventure. We were attending a wedding near Ghent and needed a convenient, clean, reasonably priced hotel in the area that had parking. This hotel met our expectations! The staff was friendly (they let us check in early - a plus since two of our party flew from Denver & Seattle and were really tired) - English was spoken fluently - in fact most of the locals engaged us in conversation to practice their English. Wonderful little town, comfortable rooms - much better than the 4 star we stayed in (for a lot more money) the night before we flew back to US in Brussels. I would recommend this hotel to friends & family.

We stayed here over a weekend, while visiting friends in a nearby town. For us, the location was perfect, as we were going to several towns in the area (not necessarily staying in Aalter the whole time). This hotel gave us plenty of accomodations; the room has A/C and was decent sized. Town center was a short walk away. Enjoyed having a refrigerator in the room.

Service was great. We did not eat breakfast there, but did have a drink in the bar and that was nice. What impressed us was the hotel was full, yet the management knew who we were... when we asked for an iron, they didn't ask us for a room number... just brought it up! Same with getting a bottle of water. This was an excellent stay for us.
