The Belgische Loodsensociëteit with kids

The Belgische Loodsensociëteit with kids: a review!

The first time we visited Vlissingen during our vacation in Zeeland with our daughter, we slept at De Belgische Loodsensociëteit. The name of the hotel immediately caught our attention online, and behind the hotel is a history dating back to the year 1884. A building with so much history, which today houses a very modern hotel, restaurant and bar. When we went further on the hotel’s website to look at the hotel’s rooms and saw the spacious family rooms, we knew we wanted to spend the night here in Vlissingen with the family. Based on our overnight stay at the hotel, we write this comprehensive review.

The hotel

The hotel is located right in the center of Vlissingen and from the hotel it is less than a two-minute walk to the cozy terraces of Vlissingen’s city center. We can park the car in front along the side of the road and pay only a few euros with a special day pass that we can put in front of the car window. By the way, there is also a parking garage near the hotel if you prefer to park your car inside.

When we arrive at the hotel we only see how cool the location is. The hotel is on the waterfront and you have a view of the sea with the large ships that sail here. In front of the hotel is also a terrace, where people can eat and drink and where you have a very cool view of the sea. We are welcomed by the friendly owner and given the key to the room. When we enter the family room we booked, we only see how big the room is. What a space!

The room

We had booked the superior family room. This is a room for families with up to four people. There is in the room a double bed and also two twin beds. In addition, you have a small table with a chair, and because of all the (corona) measures, we also had a huge table in our room with four chairs. An ideal table for family games in the evening!

In addition, the ladies were completely happy with the bathtub found in the bathroom. The ladies love to bathe, so of course that was taken advantage of at length. The rooms had just been renovated when we were there and everything looked tremendously clean and new! In addition, the room had a flat-screen TV, a good WIFI connection and it was possible to make coffee or tea in the room.

Several rooms can be booked at the hotel. They also have very cool double rooms overlooking the sea. For a list of all the rooms the hotel offers, check out the hotel’s website here.

Food and drink in hotel

That people do not come to the hotel just to sleep was immediately obvious from the crowds on the terrace. In fact, the hotel also has an excellent restaurant! Especially in the summer months, it is great to stay here on the terrace of the restaurant and with the beautiful view of the sea.

The restaurant offers different menus and you can really eat out luxuriously here. Of course, there is a lot of fish on the menu. For kids, they also have several tasty things like fries with a french fry, a wrap with vegetables or a plate of spaghetti. In addition to the food, they also have a huge variety of beers on the menu.

It is possible to eat at the hotel three times a day. We took advantage of the hotel’s breakfast and it was very extensive and very tasty. Many different sandwiches, an egg, yogurt with different grains, different juices and much more. Normally you can have this breakfast in the restaurant, but because of the measures, we ate it in the room, which of course was fine at the huge table!

Of course, the hotel is very centrally located, and of course in downtown Vlissingen you have a wide choice of restaurants and cafes where you can eat and drink something on the terraces.
