“The Loft” The Groenedijk Motorcycle Loft Hotel, Groenedijkstraat 5a, 8460 Oudenburg, Belgium.
www.grd.be tel. 0032(0)59 26 85 40.
Comment: The Loft is a converted factory less than an hour from Calais with 30 twin/double rooms plus some 4 bed rooms, there is also dormitory. It’s spartan with no en-suites but is reasonably cheap.
Bike parking is very secure.
Food arrangements are strange but work.
Guests select meals from fridges and heat them in a well equipped kitchen with commercial microwaves; this works surprisingly well with the result one can get a good meal at any time of day or night.
The bar is a delight and has bike club stickers from all over Europe, including NAM.
Fridays & Saturdays can be busy with jazz nights and bike club week-ends so book ahead “An Experience”.
