9th time I've visited Ghent and fortunately discovered this hotel for our first visit and wouldn't look anywhere else as it is excellent. This visit like most was with an 11 strong group of cycling enthusiasts and again we were superbly catered for in respects of spacious room accommodation, excellent breakfasts and secure areas for our cars and bikes. It...

It just was so sad. Arriving in Ghent on our bicycles, excited to see this beautiful city, the Castelnou just did not offer anything. And when we asked if we could move for the second night, were met with complete hostility. After a really dire breakfast we moved anyway. Staying here felt like staying at a backpackers, only without any...

This was the second visit on what is now becoming an annual pilgrimage to the Ronde van Vlaanderen. It's ideally situated for the centre of beautiful Gent and with immediate access to road, rail and cycle paths for however you want to get around. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, a generous breakfast buffet and welcoming staff make this an easy place...

Hotel is 20min walk from main attractions, and is comfortable and quiet. Breakfast could be improved especially the lack of hot food choice. If you want to order a cab make sure you book beforehand. We waited so long we nearly missed our Eurostar train despite allowing extra time.

Can't fault this hotel. Doesn't look much from outside, but it's lovely inside. Receptionist efficient and friendly. Helpful with parking tips. Managed to park opposite hotel and only 6 euro for 24 hours. No charge Sundays. Apartment is spacious, high spec and spotless. Breakfast is fantastic. Cereals, fruit salad, fresh fruit. Scrambled eggs, hams and cheese. Coffee is from machine...

I stayed at Castelnou under exceptional personal reasons. The way Castelnou staff took care and made all the arrangements during my stay is truly remarkable. I do recommend this place highly to stay during your trip to Belgium.

Very new hotel in Ghent. Modern and spacious rooms. Parking on site but limited. Breakfast is OK in the morning. The materials they have used for the hotel are not that good, so I am wondering how this looks like in some years. Friendly host at the reception.

We had a family break at the Castelnou to visit the excellent Ghent Christmas Market. The hotel is modern, and very well equipped, with spacious rooms containing a small kitchen area, fridge, dining chairs and table, and the biggest range of English language TV channels I've seen in any European hotel! Plates, cutlery and some cooking utensils will be useful...
