My uncle and aunt surprised us with a voucher for a free breakfast with bubbles. We choose Hotel Polaris in Ostend after reading the reviews. The restaurant is very stylish, black painted walls and a very beautiful chandelier. The breakfast buffet with bubbles was quite extensive, with little breads and fresh baked bread, cheese, ham, eggs, yoghurt, cornflakes, coffee, tea,... More

We went here in appparently the bussiest weekend of the year. Hotel has a good location but was way over priced. We had a very small room, and terrible beds. Breakfast was good. Hotel is in a very old building so high ceilings and old interiors.

Lovely, quaint hotel. Convenient location and helpful and friendly staff. Visited over St Paulusfeesten Festival, which I would definitely recommend. Breakfast was simple but all that was required. Over all a super stay. Would possibly suggest they invested in air con for more humid evenings but this is the only negative I could possibly find.

This is an average hotel. The room was very small room and the bathroom was tiny. Also it wasn't perfectly clean and the window was broken. (Room 303) Great breakfast though. Location is fine. Ok for 1 night but I don't think I'll return.

the location of this botique hotel is awesome. The staff very friendly and a nice breakfast. In the room was everything available what you needed. The rooms were rather small and clean. The only thing I can say about the room is that it needed a little paint. I would go the again8
