Four BSA Owner Club Thames Valley Branch members took a motorcycle trip into Belgium, a much overlooked country which has a lot to offer especially in the friendship and cuisine areas.
So I would like to share this very nice experience that four of us experienced during the summer of 2012 (yea, OK what summer). We went off to Belgium for a week in July and stayed at the Hotel Ter Zuidhoek, Roeselare. Two of us trailered the bikes and two rode. We arrived, wet, late in the afternoon and just getting ourselves sorted before going to the reception when Eddy a Glaswegian speaking Belgian suggested that we moved the bikes and car to another part of the hotel grounds where the bikes could be parked under cover and in a secure compound. We then went to reception where we met Eddie’s wife the “boss” a small but very capable Glaswegian lady who could not do enough for us.
Fortunately the weather stayed dry most of the time and we were able to explore the coastal areas and of course some of the WW1 battlefield scenes and museums, including the evening Menin Gate ceremony (a very moving experience if you have not been to it) all in reasonably dry if not very warm conditions. The Gent ten day festival (Art’s, Theatre,Music, BEER & Food) was visited by train and Eddy our host was only too pleased to take us to the station and offered to collect us when we arrived back from our trip. I can speak for all of us and we would recommend this hotel to anybody.
It is small so book well in advance, it’s in the countryside on the outskirts of the town, it has a very good restaurant with excellent food cooked by Eddy & his son, there is a super play area for the kids which is secure and easily supervised.
All in all this is a very friendly hotel and well worth sharing with fellow travelers and BSAOC members. If you are interested then contact Eddy & Angela you will not be disappointed.
