Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent stay The staff make this hotel special all so pleasant and welcoming Rooms clean and airy Food excellent and lots of choice Wouldn't stay anywhere else in the vicinity August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location for visiting if in car Would recommend this hotel. Although on the outskirts of Ghent it was only a 20 minute walk to the main train station and a 30 minute walk to the centre. The cost of a taxi to the centre was 12 euros. If driving from Calais the hotel is about 90 minutes drive but very easy to find. Hotel staff very friendly and car park is secure with plenty of places. Cost of parking is 10 euros per night. Would definitely recommend..... August 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value Stayed in the family room ( 2 adults 2 kids). Spacious and very clean with good facilities and a great shower to refresh on arrival. Decent breakfast area with a good selection of eats . Would recommend to others. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasantly surprised We used the hotel as a stop over on the way back to Calais. We ( my wife and I) arrived on two motorcycles and the receptionist was really helpful in assisting us to park them in a secure place, we had also arrived a few hours earlier than we should have but there was no issue in being given our room key straight away. Good hotel, clean, and helpful staff. The hotel was really busy and we decided to eat in the restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, the staff very attentive. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. A bit out of the way of the town centre but we knew that when we booked. August 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by problemloser Aufenthalt Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit dem Hotel und dem Service! Ausser Lärmpegel ausserhalb! August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by positive experience Having stayed at Holiday Inn Express before ..I was not disappointed. The room was VERY clean and comfortable. Bathroom was spotless also. Quality of towels was only average. The staff were excellent....I was very impressed with service in the dining room at dinner. The staff were superb. Breakfast was only ok... would have liked croissants and the fresh fruit salad was disappointing. otherwise it was ok August 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stop over on way to Italy A good place to stop if heading further into Europe. Only 1 hour ish from Calais and easy to find. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was busy and located in a small corner which caused some queuing however breakfast was nice. We will definitely stop here again. August 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfotable, excellent food Excellent value for money. Friendly, helpful, courteous staffWill use this hotel again if in the area. The hotel exceeded my expectations August 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kurzbericht Zweckmäßig und entsprechendem Preis- Leistungsverhältnis August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect way to break the Journey Was impressed with our first visit en route to our destination (2/8) that we booked again to break our return journey to UK (12/8). Both times, staff were helpful and pleasant, and it was really nice to be recognised as return visitors when we checked in late at night. First time round, we tried the restaurant that had only been open 4 days and we really enjoyed it, even more so that the kids ate for free. Really nice staff in restaurant :). For the second visit we were too late for dinner, but the nice gentlemen at reception offered to order pizza for us - gratefully received at 11pm. Rooms were comfortable and all slept well. A few more towels, cups and tea bags in room would have been beneficial for a family of 4 - rectified immediately by staff on reception. Thanks for 2 great stop overs. will be back next year. August 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good spacious rooms excellant staff the staff were fantastic and the rooms were brilliant for our family. we had a problem on the first night regarding pro cycling teams taking over the hotel but when they left on day 2 the experience was much better. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful customer service From reservation to checkout, the staff coped with several difficult situations calmly and efficiently. Many thanks. August 14, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Un desastre nada recomendable Aire acondicionado que apenas enfriaba. No tienen champú si no un bote de gel para todo. Mobiliario viejo. No había ni un armario cerrado en la habitación, sólo unas estanterías abiertas para poner la ropa (poner la ropa interior a la vista no es nada intimo). Lo peor de todo era que las camas eran incomodísimas, te hundías en ellas. Había reservado y mandado un correo para que me pusieran una cama de matrimonio y cuando llegamos nos dieron una habitación con dos camas. Eso no es romántico cuando haces una escapada con tu mujer. El desayuno no tenia buffet caliente, y encima se hace en unas mesas delante de la recepción. Creo que todo esto es motivo suficiente para estar insatisfecho. July 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good stay we arrived on a bank holiday although the hotel was going through refurbishment we had a good stay. July 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to find Stayed here on the way to Germany and on the way back. Easy to find . Staff very helpful and our meal in the resturant was excellent . The room was really comfortable with very good air con. Would use this hotel again as a stop over. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel and very friedly staff Great hotel, ease of access, quiet and clean rooms. Staff is very friendly and will help you get around the city. The breakfast is very good and gives you ample time to go down and enjoy breakfast before leaving to explore the city July 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Für Geschäftsreisende ohne Ansprüche geignet Schade, dass es in diesem Hotel keine Möglichkeiten gibt, um nach einem arbeitsreichen Tag sich zu entspannen wie zum Beispiel Sauna oder Fitness. July 7, 2014

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location Reasonably priced. Good for overnight stay. The breakfast was included in the price. This was good. Main problem was that the bed was too small foe double bed. June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good business stopover. Nice room and helpful staff. I enjoyed my stay at this Holiday Inn Express. Some positive aspects of my stay: - The bed was very comfortable. - The staff were approachable and helpful. - Television offered some English channels. June 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good stop over point Used for a one night stop over as good access to main roads. Excellent evening buffet and good choice for breakfast. Staff were friendy and spoke good English June 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Einfaches Hotel mit zu hohem Preis Das Frühstück ist zu einfach gehalten. Der Parkgebühren sind zu hoch Allgemein stimmt das Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis nicht. June 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for money Excellent hotel, highly recommended. Great value for money. Location good if passing by Ghent but maybe not great for sightseeing (unless you have a car). This is also not a luxury hotel. Travelling as family with kids. Arrived late at night (2AM) no problem for check in. Hotel is easy to find and very close to Motorway links. Good room, but second bed for kids not very comfortable (sofa bed). OK for 1 night but probably not good for several nights. Main bed was very comfortable. Not sure if the hotel has duplex rooms, (would be good if they did). Breakfast OK but not outstanding (perfectly reasonable with good selection for this type of hotel). I have stayed at other hotels in the same area of Ghent under similar circumstances in recent months. The Holiday Inn Express is very competitive in all aspects. June 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth staying at We have stayed here before so knew what to expect as my wife is from Ghent. The hotel is well maintained and was good value for money, the only annoying factor is having to pay 10 euro a day to park which I have never had in the UK. May 28, 2014
