I haven't been to SPA for the F1 but everything is packed for other races so F1 would be 100 times worse and prices will be raised significantly I am sure. If you stay at a four/five star hotel in Brussels (about an hour away or Liège 30 min) they can take care of the shuttle (restaurants etc.). Spa the region is fairly rural so when 100k plus fans converge it gets a bit crazy and things get booked up fast.
With just over 2 months until the race I am not sure what will be available- have you looked at tickets?
