Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UK family 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DUNDIE 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ciaron Convenient location and very welcoming
We have been using this hotel as a stop over for a few years and each time it is very good. Easy to find directly off motorway and just about tfe right distance from Calais to give a good head start into the next day.
Rooms are spacious, the bar is nice to relax in with children welcome and breakfast is as you would expect.
As IHG Reward members we got faster internet access which was good, but I did miss the complimentary beer this time around.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DanM56 Nice Staff but Uncomfortable Bed
Service was great and the facilities were nice except for one of the worst beds I have ever tried to sleep on.
Another annoyance was when a window washing man showed up outside my window unannounced to clean the window .I was glad I was dressed. It would have been nice if the guests were notified to give them a chance to close their curtains before he showed up. Twenty minutes later there is a knock at my door even though I put the do not disturb placard on the door. It was the window washing man asking to come in my room to clean the window inside my room. He pleaded to come in because he said he only comes twice a year to clean all the windows. Needless to say I told him he could come back after I checked out. There has got to be a better protocol to follow for having the windows washed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mancunian67 Greatroom, wonderful bed
The room was of a good size, clean and well presented. The only down side is the location of the soft drink dispensing machine right outside the room door (avoid room x19 on each floor!) which gave some noise during the night and when people used the machine (drink cans make a lot of noise at 03h00 when dropping into the depensing tray!).
Otherwise great stay, would recommend greatly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sim1800 Perfectly acceptable
Good hotel. Location average as still 4km from the centre of Ghent. Toaster for some reason was removed at 9.15am when the french bread ran out...not sure why as plenty of other bread available! Important that front staff personal appearance has more attention paid to. Parking expensive when it's far away from the centre.
Otherwise good value for money

We arrived late in the evening, but nothing was too much trouble.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fadacious Recent Experience!!!
A lovely place to be and relax, nice room for family with children but the breakfast needs a bit of variety. The longer you stay, the more the breakfast becomes boring.
However, a first-time visitor would love the hotel. The staff are friendly with smile and without smile on their faces. Guess they have different mood!

Perfectly clean room. Very large choice for breakfast. Nice staff. Car park a bit expansive : actually one can not reach the hotel without a car and there is no free parking nearby.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JonnyNortherner Fab return visit
Stayed here as a 2+2 family on a European trip between Brussels & Lille.
Reception staff were amazing & found us a room despite our early arrival.
Room was a decent size even with the sofa bed in use.
When we booked for dinner we were given a 10% discount voucher - which was cool.
The restaurant is just brilliant with a top choice of food in a buffet layout & top service.
A taxi into Lille was around €15.00, reception were happy to book this for us, & we thought this was far easier than driving in or using the buses.
The only issues we had were:
* The lack of air-con; it was really hot at night which made sleep uncomfortable & with the window open the road noise was pretty loud.
* The €10.00 per day parking charge seemed a bit of a cheek; but the car park seemed pretty secure.
Would definitely return if it was a bit cooler.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KazW Great Staff and modern facilities
We stayed for just 1 night, but were very impressed with the staff (the badges they wore with flags for langauges they spoke helped) they were very knowledgeable about the area...where to catch bus into town etc and other information for car parks etc.
The buffet breakfast was well presented with a wide choice of cold items, (only let down by not having cooked option).
Car parking on site was good, although having to pay for 24hrs parking at an out of town hotel isn't good!
If you are planning to go into Gent for evening you need to take car as last bus back out to hotel is 21.15....but it's a relatively easy 15 min drive to centre and parking in city is around 1,50euro per hour.
The hotel is modern, clean and smart and good value (provided you book in advance at a discounted rate!)
Would recommend to anyone visiting Gent...if you don't want to stay in the centre of the city.
There was a restaurant at the hotel, which we didn't use, but very little else in the area.

Rooms were comfortable and clean with excellent maid service.
The hotel offered an very good mix of breakfast items, which were available between reasonable hours, (6.30 - 10.00am)
Hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming.
The hotel also offered a very nice Restaurant and Bar.
This hotel is also ideally situated for ease of access to the motorway network.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Danny43 Good price
I liked the hotel very much, the rooms were clean and big and I liked the bathroom. The only thing that wasn't very good, was that the sink was too small and there was nog room for personal belongings. even the towels were in the toilet, not a nice place to put them. Breakfast was fine, just that there were many people and we had to wait for a table. And what really bothered me was the fact that we had to pay 10 euro's a day for a parking place, ridiculous. For the rest very good, also the only 10 min drive to Gent centre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nidge Consistent standard
You always know that you are going to get a clean, comfortable room with Holiday Inn Express. The standard and format of the rooms are totally consistent. On this visit, it was a pity that there was no extractor fan in the bathroom and that the shower soap was not replaced. But otherwise, everything was really good.

I was here with the family for 5 days and it was fun. I met new friends at the hotel.The 10 Euro charge for parking is what I do not like...why charge that? That's all I have to say.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hipscrew Mostly good
A clean and relatively comfortable room. Unfortunately for us it was a hot couple of nights and the air conditioning just wasn't sufficient to keep us cool and the very small opening in such a large window was never going to allow any air into the room.
The reception staff were helpful, polite and friendly as was the young man at the bar. The waiting staff on the evening were keen to help and ensure we enjoyed our meal.
Breakfast was another matter!!
Ignoring the pushing and barging from the other guests from other parts of europe who took so much food and mostly wasted it or, like the other half, made themselves snacks for the day and basically emptied the shelves of food so we had to keep waiting for stuff, there was a reasonable selection of items to choose from. The serving staff were rude! They too barged there way around. One lady in particular, short cropped blond hair and the largest rear end, was particularly rude! We even had to deal with her on our second evening in the restaurant and decided to eat elsewhere!
Only one thing really irked us and that was the car park fee. Should have been free for guests but instead cost us 20euros for the two nights. Add that to the Belgium "city tax" at 2euro50 per adult per night and the hidden charges soon mount up.
All in all the Hotel is what it is and was sufficient for our stop over. Somewhere to lay our heads.
Belgium is another matter and I for one would not rush back, despite the people being really pleasant.
