We arrived to find ground floor rooms, with parking directly outside it. There was a patio outside with garden furniture to relax in. Hotel Westendia is essentially a large restaurant with a two storey accommodation block behind it with ample parking in a very quiet area of the western part of Westende. It is about 300 metres from the beach and the long wide promenade, which stretches to Ostend. The rooms were fairly basic but spacious and with comfortable beds. The owner Jim and his wife made us very welcome and the continental breakfast was excellent and plentiful. About 500 metres away there is the Westende Bad tram station, which took us to and from Ostend. It is surprisingly simple and cheap to use. Also, we enjoyed walking to Middelkerke, which has ample restaurants and activity. Overall, a good place to stay at a reasonable cost with ample free parking in a quiet area close to the beach but not too close.
