Sat by the bar, did not stay in the hotel. They make some excellent beers and I believe they are made right there, on site. All their different styles were very good. Food looked good there, too. They also have a small store where you can buy their beers and some other related stuff. Very cool space inside, nice and... More

Most men's idea of heaven, and the beer is one of Belgian's best (Golden Carolus). Our room was clean and spacious with a fine view of stacked beer canisters and mysterious old brewing machines from the outside passage way. We paid a bit extra for overnight parking in the brewery car park. Breakfast is in the restaurant, where we also... More

This hotel is a one off set in the heart of the only working brewery in town. You have to pass the barrels from reception to the rooms. I thought it gave it real atmosphere. The room was spacious and modern, not all that well sound proved from those above but clean and comfortable. The reception area is in the... More

The Hotel is part of a brewery and has an excellent gift shop and if you're a beer fan you will love it. The hotel rooms however are basic and in urgent need of modernisation as does the bathroom with the shower being a simple affair with an antiquated shower curtain over base arrangement. An awkward nights sleep in a... More

This was our second stay here and it was more enjoyable than the first time. This time we had a lovely meal in the restaurant. The meals are very individual, well presented and good value for money. The beer on draught comes directly from the brewery on site. You can also do brewery tours there with a taste of 2... More

This hotel is also a working brewery, so my husband (who loves Belgian beer was really jealous as he was not with me). I stayed here before while on business, so was quite happy to stay here again. The reception was friendly and efficient, and the check in smooth and very easy The rooms are large and comfortable, although there... More

This is a brewery hotel. The rooms are big and comfortable and there are tea/coffee making facilities,a big plus. We ate here in the evening which was robust cooking . The beers are superb and we bought some from the brewery shop next morning to bring home. This would be a great weekend destination! Mechelen is a lovely town.

The room we stayed in was a good size but a bit dark and dreary and could do with a refurbish as well as the bathroom. Bed very comfortable. Had a good nights sleep. Breakfast was served in the Bar/ restaurant seperate from the hotel and was a typical help yourself continental breakfast. Did not think it was good value... More

We stayed for just one night but wished we had more time. The hotel is a beer drinkers dream. The rooms are OK- more of a comfy motel standard than luxurious. The attached restaurant is fantastic- good food., and being part of a brewery has all the quality beers expected from a Belgian Brewery. There is an outside seating area... More

We booked the hotel because it was a little novel to stay on the site of a brewery and I had tried and enjoyed some Carolus beers. I had no expectations when we arrived, as I wasn't sure how well a working brewery could pull off accommodation too. As some previous reviews state, the rooms are a little basic, but... More
