My wife and I stayed for 3 nights - mid October. We had the "Felix" room (really a suite - a living room in front, and large bedroom in back, a rear porch and a large bath). Very luxurious, superbly decorated and impeccably maintained. The term B & B may technically accurate, but this rivals deluxe hotels. The breakfasts had... More

My wife and I absolutely loved this B&B. The location is perfect for exploring Ghent. All rooms are sure to have wonderful views of the castle and city skyline. The rooms are spacious, exquisitely decorated and immaculate clean. The owners are lovely people and served us the most amazing homemade breakfast each day. This is truly the only place to... More

We had the suite/loft for three nights and really came to love staying at this lovely B&B. The owners are very nice people and fun to chat with in the mornings. They do a marvelous breakfast presentation. I would certainly recommend to anyone. It makes for a great location in exploring Ghent as well as Bruges, Brussels, or even Antwerp.

De Waterzooi is in the perfect location; right on Sint Verleplein square, across from Gravensteen Castle, a tram stop out front and within a 10 minute walk to all of the historic district. It also has the perfect accommodations; spacious 2 rooms, including coffee/tea service, refrigerator, deck, robes, super comfortable bed, nice toiletries, sound system and even an elevator if...

We have visited Ghent before, but after our experience at De Waterzooi we wouldn't stay anywhere else. The spacious apartment and ideal location were perfect for a relaxing few days after the chaos of getting married. Kay and Christian were both lovely, offering anything they could to make our stay a happy one (even supplying us with plenty of English... More

If you go to Ghent and you don't stay here, you're missing out on one of the best experiences you'll ever have. De Waterzooi is so special that it's impossible to adequately praise or describe it. What makes it so special? First of all, Kay & Christian, the gracious and charming owners. I travelled with a friend; we had two... More

In a city filled with beauty, Kay and Christian (the owners) create for their guests the most exceptional experience in their B & B. The architectural beauty of the property, combined with the superb breakfasts served each morning by this caring couple make for a very memorable experience. We travel extensively throughout the world, and can honestly say that you... More

This is marvelous ! The house is absolute exceptionel and the couple that runs the place, seems to do it for pleasure and not for duty! With so many bad and terrible experiences in B&B I was not expecting anything of this caliber regardless the high score in ratings! If you want to experience Ghent this is the place to... More

I do extensive research before we book our rooms and after reading glowing reviews about De Waterzooi and Ghent, I added this stop to our recent Low Countries vacation. From the beginning with booking and further important information, Kay and Christian, the amiable hosts, provided us with easy information about booking, gettining into Ghent, and offloading our luggage.
