In my view this is a great location to stay 1 night with a couple. U will not have seen anything like this before, and probably never will! We stayed in the boat chamber, and what an experience that was! An old closet from a seamstress/tailor, an old bar to sit at on the top floor, and below that a... More

Stayed for a night after finding it on the internet. Totally recommend it. Well priced for what it is. Only downside was it was further from town of Durbuy than we thought. Def stay here again but this time book at the restaurant next door.

This place is really breathtaking! We're still impressed by this awesome suite. We love the whole architecture - both inside and outside. This is an amazing design concept! Chapeau!! The suite is clean and you've got everything that you need for a great stay: Big, warm beds, a cozy stove, a bath en suite (with a great bath tub and... More

We stayed one night in the legend of trolls room and one night in the Trojan horse room. Both rooms were so unique and we really enjoyed taking a bit of a travel break to relax in the rooms for the evening. The legend of trolls room was my favorite, it was very cosy and charming. It is on the... More

La Balade des Gnomes is absolutely marvelous. This is the second time we have stayed there. The pictures just do not do this place justice. We stayed in the Forest room last year and this year stayed in the Space ship room. The Bathroom actually has hydraulics to open and close the door like a space ship! Even the bed... More

Difficult to get to if you don't have a car (like me) but well worth it! The room was great. I stayed in the Legend of the Trolls room and felt like in an enchanted forest. It is annoying that there are set times when you can check in, so you have to go out of your way to get... More

We stayed in the Trojan Horse. First impressions weren't great as reception is only open for limited times and, although we arrived during the time it should have been opened, no-one was there. Others were also waiting. We were then shown round and received the complimentary drinks and food in the fridge. The girl who showed us round was very... More

It seems unbelievable that someone has clearly put passion and creativity together to build a trojan horse style suite. Apparently a local artist built this horse and decorated the other rooms in the main building (which you can visit if you check out late enough), and it is spectacular. From the motorised drawbridge out the back to the head that... More

My partner and I stayed in 'the stars of the desert' room. We were shown to our room and given complimentary sherry and nuts. The room was amazing, the pictures really don't do it justice. lots of thought has gone into the little details. The room was very dark which was disorientating at times. The location of the hotel is... More

If you are looking for a completely new experience you should definitely go to "La Balade des Gnomes". We have spent there one night and it was magical. At our arrival we were offered a very nice "aperitif" from the house and the staff was very nice allowing us to get a tour of the hotel and its strange rooms!... More
