We wanted to end the summer with a memorable trip. Short Break Holidays offers Eurostar Holidays. Having been to most Belgium cities we chose Mechelen. Price £204.00 for two nights B & B includes 24 hour use of rail ticket to and from Mechelen. Arriving at St Pancras collected tickets and sat to enjoy a pleasant train journey with one... More

This is my 2nd time I'll write a review for this hotel. Before my review was for business people, as my trips before were business orientated and this hotel is my favorite in Mechelen. Now I came with my girlfriend and took a bigger room: the exceptional room, so a bedroom with a separate living room. And I like to... More

Stayed for a few days in an Exceptional room. Room was stunningly spacious and well layed-out, with respect for the original church. The people at reception were friendly but not all of them equally helpful or understanding. The downsides we experienced were the very cramped and overpriced parking space (25 eur for one night and very little room to manouvre)... More

Dear Christophe_Olenaed, Thank you very much for your message through TripAdvisor. Thanks to this kind of remarks we can improve our guest satisfaction. As our hotel is located in on al church... the architect had to be very creative with the spaces in the building. That's why all our 79 bedrooms are different. As the builders forgot to build a...

This hotel is well known even by locals as beautiful! The exterior is a giant, Gothic European church, and inside it is a sleek, modern and elegant hotel. A part of me was secretly hoping I'd be staying in a CHURCH, but I imagine it might not have been as comfortable or clean. If you want a room with some... More

Dear Janet T, Thank you very much for your message through TripAdvisor and for sharing your experiences with our future guests. Let me rectify some small things, so our guests will get the correct information. 56 of our 79 bedrooms are in the church. The other 23 are in the cloister which is connected to the church.

Excellent Hotel with top Service. The Hotel Location is an old church rebuilt inside in a 4 Star Hotel. Only criticem is that the lightning in my room was to diffuse and the Price for breakfast € 25,-- is a bit to high.

I stayed there only once, for two nights. Was fantastic, the rooms are so beautiful. The former church flair is really great, If I would go there again, I would take my wife and/or my girlfriend with me. It is really nice there.

Yes it's a beautiful hotel and the roof top room with its church window is wonderful. But it's also like a big hotel without personality. At a second view the room is small, no room for two suitcases and the toilet separate without sink. Be where of the cost for breakfast is 20 euro pp and parking 25 euro per... More

Stayed here a couple of times, first time in a 'regular' room although it seemed larger than normal with a balcony overlooking the patio. Second time upgraded to a 'Church' room with stained glass windows. Both very nicely decorated and furnished, quality linens, slippers and robes, bathroom with tub.

I cannot say enough about the Patershof Hotel. It is beautiful, but not pretentious, off the beaten path but not isolated, friendly but not overbearing. The room was both stylish and historical with original columns and stained glass windows visible. Also the room and bed was comfortable, especially after a long day at a music festival. Due to travel misfortune,... More

Mechelene is a lovely Historical City to visit not usually on the British tourist map, recommended to us by our Dutch friends. Martin's Patershof was a church and has very tastefully been turned into a four star Hotel. Our room was a standard but really lovely ,complete with a beautiful stained glass window.
