“Perfect wedding and diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Three day wedding at Altembrouck: Friday night dinner at the porch - exquisite food and very professional service, without being rigid
Saturday - ceremony with opera diner - just perfect in all its dimensions
Sunday - brunch and guided walking in the forest - not too stiff, great atmosphere, the right energy.
If you believe in the right balance of rational correctness and emotionel well-being, this is definitely a place to check out and enjoy to its fullest.

Room Tip: go for the suites - not too expensive, and truly authentic.

I really have nothing bad to say about this place. The landscape is amazing, the house beautiful and the food out of this world. The staff is also very friendly and attentive.

Although we were the only one with a child (2 years) it was not a problem although the restaurant is not really child friendly.

Highly recommendable!!

Another reviewer listed the restaurant service as clueless. This was true for us in summer 2012. But the hotel was also sub-par. Room was musty with many flies; shampoo was not replaced and we stayed four nights. Breakfast food selections were limited and FLIES were all over the meats and cheese. Front desk was unfriendly and info from them was inaccurate. Finally, our bill was incorrect in inexcusable ways. We ate dinner only once (who would go back!) but they charged us for another pair of dinners. They "upgraded" our room upon check-in and then charged us for the more expensive room. They added breakfast charges to our bill even though it was included. Our bill was 600 euros more than it should have been. Afterward, they still owed us 190 euros and they have not answered any emails about the promised refund (they said "trust us, we'll refund your money"). We have now taken this to our credit card company. How much of a disaster can one place be???

Rooms and location are great. Restaurant however is a disaster! Clueless staff, one hour waits between dishes, mix up in orders. People walked out!! Gordon Ramsey or Herman den Blijker: this a nice one for your programme!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2009

We spent 2 nights in early december 2009 in this really beautiful chateau. It makes for excellent walking in an English-like country side with Maastricht a 20' busride away.

The renovation was being undertaken with style and taste. Nothing too fancy; all in proper measures.

The diner (they call it 'private-dining') was very good, and the Wagyu meat truly excellent. Never had a taste before of this Japanese 'mother of all meats' but it surely matched its reputation. For the meat alone I would come back...

I surprised my wife for her 50th birthday with a stay and private dinner with friends and family at Altembrouck, one of the best kept secrets in Belgium, just over the Dutch border, near Maastricht, Liege and Aachen. The owner of Altembrouck, Wim Claessen, who also lives there, has been working over 14 years now to build up this beautiful resort which is now rapidly becoming one of the hottest gastronomy hotspots in this area. Our friends from Holland (Amsterdam area- three hours to the North by car) enjoyed the personal introduction and tour of the resort given by the owner himself, and the excellent Japanese Wagyu meat, also known as 'Kobe' beef (this cattle is held at Altembrouck and in Wales, UK which deleivers to Harrods in London) prepared by the ex-chef of Michelin-star restaurant Beluga in Maastricht. The rooms are also excellent and it is great to wake up, open the window and see the black swans swimming in the lake or white horse in the stable and the beautiful small and quiet valley surrounding Altembrouck. Also the breakfast here is great: all local, organic produce. And finally the staff is very friendly and does everything to make sure you have a great stay.
