Stop at the Hotel Welkom during your West Flanders travel. A family-run affordable Damme hotel, it is a great place to stay on a weekend break from Antwerp or Brussels, or as a stopover before taking a passenger ferry from the Port of Zeebrugge to the United Kingdom. The Hotel Welkom is run by a local woman who grew up in her family's tavern along the Damme canal, called the Damse Vaart. In 1991 she and her husband began construction of a family hotel next to the tavern. Today the hotel and tavern are a popular stop especially for those on cycling tours, with its classy indoor bar and outdoor terrace serving meals, snacks, and 99 different varieties of beer. Amenities also include complimentary wireless Internet access. The hotel is located 10 minutes by car from the historic town of Damme, which was the site of the Battle of Damme between the English and the French in 1213. You can trace the pattern of the star-shaped fortifications that once protected the town by looking for the lines of poplar trees and a moat in places. Damme is also known as a book town and a destination for boat trips. From the Hotel Welkom it's just 4.4 miles/7 kilometers to the seaside resort of Knokke-Heist, 8.8 miles/14 kilometers to the historic city center of Bruges, and 10.6 miles/17 kilometers to the Port of Zeebrugge.
Not far from the coast, the canal is beautiful.
Although you don't hear it to clearly there is a busy road directly behind the hotel. The towels were faded and frayed. At breakfast cheese and meat were on the same plate which makes cheese taste of meat. The prepacked cheeses in the cosy baskets weren't cold. It was all just okay but the roomprice is to high compared to atmosphere and comfort.
a well situated hotel in pleasent countryside,close to bruges and clean with a welcoming atmosphere and nice gardens and breakfast...,overall good value and happy stay there...we would return
its difficult to find due to its location and there was a constant background noise noticible at night due to the road flyover at the end of the garden
Hotel was very clean , comfortable,with a friendly service , a liitle gem !!
