Exceptional 10.0
Amazing staff
The hotel was clean and comfortable, but a little basic. The location was OK, but it was quite a wait for a bus into town. What made the trip was the staff - they went out of their way to help us with anything we needed!

Fair 4.0
It was filthy, we arrived very late so we had no chance to discuss it with management. The carpets were so dirty. The bath was so so dirty. Hairs on the shower curtain and bath. I tried to have a shower but tub was nearly blocked. I would never stay there again...

Poor 2.0
Out dated, poor wash room facilities, heating did not work and during storm cold air was coming in. Additional charge for parking cars. Very unpleasant and not usual Holiday Inn experience.

Junior, ie3 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Our stay in Gent was quite wonderful as the city was more beautiful than we expected. The Gent express is within a short bus ride from the city centre and so was worth staying at. The breakfast buffet was excellent and so was the bar. The staff at the front desk were also very helpful with whatever requests we had.

Great hotel.
The hotel was great, the staff very helpful. The description of the hotel said it had a restaurant however, it was closed all 4 night that we were there. We would not have stayed at the hotel, had we known there was no restaurant.
