Stylish Ostend getaway near to the beach with Eurostar travel or self-drive with Eurotunnel

Hotel Mercure Oostende, Belgium




Superior room


Contemporary Ostend holiday near to the beach - includes breakfast and Eurostar travel or car hire option

Best known for its important port and maritime history, Ostend is a hidden gem on the north European coast, boasting white-sand beaches and relaxing seaside scenes – think a lengthy promenade with seafront cafes and restaurants, floating museums, neo-Gothic churches and dollops of Belgian charm. And this being Belgium, there's plenty of delicious local, traditional food and beer to be had.

Your base for this coastal stay is Hotel Mercure Oostende, a contemporary hotel only 250 metres away from the beach and within walking distance of the city’s shopping areas, restaurants and casinos. Inside you’ll find stylish, modern guestrooms and a swish restaurant, serving bistro-style food.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €2.12 per person, per night is to be paid locally.


  • Exploring the white-sand beach and tucking into a brown shrimp croquette or a split waffle on the promenade 
  • Waking up in your modern, contemporary guestroom, where the amenities match the look 
  • Opting for a self-drive holiday, so you can take off in your hire car to explore nearby Bruges or the coast
