Lovely Hotel with very friendly and helpful staff,decor,ambience. Great location, a 5 minute walk to all places of interest! The breakfast (buffet) is one of the best we have sampled. It is buffet but an excellent choice of top quality food and beverages to suit all tastes, so well worth the money. The bedrooms are expertly cleaned and wonderfully comfortable... More

I was a bit disappointed by this hotel. It is beautiful and the location is perfect but there were several issues that didn't fit with it's 5 star status. The main issue was lack of soundproofing. The location is beautifully quiet off the main road but the rooms don't seem to have any sound proofing from each other. When we... More

Sadly we only had the opportunity to stay for one night - I would have loved to stay a few more. Breakfast was fabulous - especially loved the champagne and chocolate! The hotel has recently been remodeled, and everything was immaculate and fresh. The room was very comfortable, both temperature and accommodations. The location is perfect. Just a hop, skip... More

We stayed for two nights. Beautiful and well appointed large room, plenty of wardrobe space and nice seating area. Very friendly and helpful staff. Can't believe it is 5* more like a 4*. Good location and parking.

Upgraded to this hotel, I guess due to the Tour of Flanders cycling. What a result, great location, great staff, Marlies on reception (thanks for your recommendations) & Nina at the brilliant breakfasts. Only negative was the room was really warm, struggled to get the AC to function as I expected. Thanks for the stay ;-)

Not worth the money, barely 3 star hotel in reality. Smelled of paint, not enough products, no trash cans, and unhelpful staff. Honestly felt like a hostel in the room althought the grounds are lovely. certainly not worth 300 euro!!

The hotel was very comfortable and clean but there is something missing for five stars. The breakfast is varied but set out in more than one room and this is not explained to everyone. The reception staff are helpful but very busy at certain times of the day, our request to make a restaurant booking seemed to be a nuisance... More

We were placed in this hotel via our River cruise Co. We arrived very early in the morning making it difficult to check in since regular check in is 3. Our cruise rep. spoke with front desk & the accommodated us. Our room was listed as a "superior rm.". Bed, wc, bath all acceptable but we lacked a view. On... More
