The Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof is rated as one of the best hotels in Ghent, so I was pretty excited to explore this hotel. The hotel is beautifully located in the center of Ghent within walking distance of the most interesting places you need to discover. It was just a 5 minute walk to the Korenmarkt, one of the largest squares in Ghent.
I was in love with the lobby area, it has this grand feeling which I like very much. The historic building has a great history and they kept the original elements. Check-in staff was professional and handed me the key to my room.
They have several room types at the Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof and I stayed in one of their deluxe rooms… and luxurious it was, featuring a great bed, sitting area with 2 comfy chairs and a nice bathroom with oversized tub. I also liked the fact that every guest receives 3 candy … which are typical for Ghent. Those small things do make a difference in the overall experience!
What I liked most of this hotel, was the spa area which is located in a separate building, the coach house. It has a (small) dipping wellness pool and a fitness center. On the top floor you can relax and enjoy the sauna and steam room. There’s a relax area under the wooden roof and soft relaxing lounge music is playing all over the place.
A part of the Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof has been completely renotaved with a very modern, hip yet stylish atmosphere. The full service restaurant LOF offers gastronomic experiences at affordable prices. Afternoon teas are being served here as well. Fancy a drink afterwards? Go to their bar which is located right at the restaurant. You can even hire the place for a private party, how cool is that?
The next morning I had breakfast which is served at LOF. It is a buffet style breakfast offering several cold and hot items. Again, there was a relaxed atmosphere here which is something I appreciate especially during the morning.
The Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof is a great hotel with a great history! When you are looking at hotels in the area of Ghent, do not hesitate to book a room in this hotel. The rates are fair and include access to the beautiful spa area, highly recommended!
