I arrived and couldn't get in the car park because of a local horse race fixture. I went in and asked for a space. I was told if I had booked I would have to park on the road. There was no space on the road for miles. I suggested this was appaling that all the spaces were taken by non residents and they seemed ok with residents having to walk miles with luggage. The manager reluctantly let me park by the bins!! Room and hotel are ok but in a very poor state of repair, but in a great position by the beach. I also had a terrace outside the room, which was great. On second night I wanted to eat in the brasserie, and was told I would have to wait. As the tables came clear I continued to wait, then after an hour the maitre'd tossed a menu at me and told me I would have to order quickly as the kitchen would shut soon. Was not impressed, but the food was ok.

Short Beach Break

Posted Jul 21, 2016
Pros: The huge rooms, generally good condition and the big car park (don't underestimate the value of a car park in this part of Belgium).
Cons: Reception staff are indifferent to the guests unless specifically approached and then they are helpful. Bar closes early (10pm when we were there).
Location: Massive beach. Easy access to tram from where you can explore the Belgian coast for just a few Euros a day. WW2 Atlantic Wall recommended.
A short break in stunning weather. The hotel is in a fantastic position where you step from the hotel onto the beach and a further 10 minute walk puts you into the main restaurant area. The public areas were much better than expected given earlier reviews and the room itself was huge and in a good condition. Generous supply of towels (family room) and prompt efficient housekeeping. Yes there were a few marks on the carpet but generally the condition and cleanliness were good.

Excellent beach view. Hotel outdated. Quite area. To expensive for location out of season. Had to pay for parking in a big parking lot which was not really used.

Gigantic beds, cosy rooms

Staff exceptionally friendly and welcoming, nice to find coffee and tea making facilities in Belgium. We were here in December so didn't brave it but the beach is just outside the hotel restaurant door. Perhaps half a mile to the town centre, also on a tram route.

Superb view.

This hotel is built on a grand scale and the seaview rooms have a fabulous view over the beach and sea. It is a little way out of town but there are a number of restaurants on the sea front within a few minutes walk and the Coast Tram stop is also just a short walk away.

Impressive hotel, but needs support to restore its former splendor.

Great location

Posted Dec 3, 2014
Lovely historic building in great location, right on the beachfront. Nice big room. No hotel info in room, so no idea on facilities offered, although not so important for our one night stay.

Not very flexible

Posted Nov 23, 2014 on Hotels
Arrived just before 9pm on Thursday night after leaving Amsterdam at 5:30pm. A girl rang me at 8:55 to ask if i was coming. I asked what time the restaurant will close and was told 9pm. I asked if i could pre-order something but couldn't!. Room 140 is opposite an electrical cabinet which buzzed all night and room was so hot it was like a sauna.
